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 River. It had literally all of the conveniences of home. Jill and Allen were exceptionally accommodating and made us feel most welcome and went out of their way to make sure that we had all that was needed to prepare a full Christmas dinner for six. If we had not had such a busy social schedule we would have spent more time enjoying the relaxing view and watching the many birds (eagles, ducks, geese, swans, herons) and seals that inhabit the area.
A great assortment of breakfast foods, tea and coffee was a pleasant surprise.
We hope that we will be able to stay again!!
