We stayed two evenings as locals from Vancouver. What a great hideaway right off the highway. We stayed in the Water Garden. It was quiet, comfortable and clean. Beautiful foods were offered for breakfast, we went out for a paddle to admire the surrounding houseboats and enjoyed the private deck soaker tub. The BBQ on the deck came handy for... More

The Duck Inn is located right on the Fraser River in Ladner. This is an utterly charming inn with lovely views. We booked the Willow Cottage as we were meeting friends and needed a two bedroom suite. Willow had everything you could possibly wish for including a fully equipped kitchen and one and a half baths. There is a king... More

We chose the Duck Inn as a stopover for our trip from Portland to Galiano Island. After we got there, we realized that the inn is a destination, not a stopover, and wished we could have stayed longer. Allen and Jill were most gracious. The Water Garden was perfect. Allen suggested a short drive to the dike to go for... More

Our stay in the Water Garden room at the Duck Inn was exactly what we needed. It was quiet and serene. I loved reading on the dock, feeding the swans and ducks, and sitting on the verandah watching the boats go by. As the sun went down we enjoyed the soaker tub on the verandah. The hosts, Allan and Jill,... More

As I write this I am having coffee on the porch of Willow Cottage, watching a heron standing on one leg, preening himself on the adjacent roof top. The view of the river and the shore beyond is equally enchanting. Haven't had such a good sleep as we had last night for ages - the bed was wonderfully comfortable and... More

We stayed in the Water Garden and thoroughly enjoyed our too short stay. Allan and Jill have paid attention to all the little details, so take time to explore your room for little treats, lots of candles for atmosphere, and lots of helpful info. The king feather bed was very comfortable, lots of great food for breakfast, but had to... More

My husband and I have just spent one fabulous night in the Water Garden Cottage and it was just not nearly enough. From the warm welcome provided by the lovely Cora when we arrived ... to the endless discovery of small, but fabulous details ... this place is amazing. It was a little cool the evening we stayed. Otherwise, we... More

I grew up in Ladner and spent many years on the river before moving to Victoria. As a 60th birthday present this month I received a night in the Water Garden from my wonderful Ladner friends. I have to say it was an experience I plan on repeating each time I return to Ladner to visit my friends. The fire... More

We lived in the same community as The Duck Inn for many years, but were never aware of it before now. We spent five nights here over Christmas and hosted Christmas dinner for our two adult children, their spouses and our 4 month old granddaughter. We stayed in a lovely loft-like cottage on pilings overlooking a reach of the Fraser... More

Jill and Allen were away on a well-deserved holiday, but their friend and helper, Cora, looked after us in a way that was beyond excellent. No detail was overlooked, from the welcome on the board to a stocked fridge to chocolates and hot chocolate to a carafe of porte and smoked salmon, smoked by Allen himself - and the best... More
