WE stayed in the cottages and my Mum and Sister stayed in the main house, we had dinner in the restaurant, the service was very good while the food was not as good as previous stays.The cottage we were in Fenn needs some work both in the bathroom with the fixtures and the twin mattress are very worn.

Lovely location and, if you are a golfer and the course is open, I expect you would enjoy it more than we did. We were there for several days just after Thanksgiving - they were doing maintenance on the course so we wouldn't have been able to golf, even if we had wanted to. Room was comfortable and nicely appointed...

Right at the Golf course, the view from the inn is beautiful. The terrace is heated from above for those outdoor enthusiasts that need fresh air while eating. The buffet did not look like much so I settled for the fish and chips, thinking to get the usual cod or halibut slider. In fact this turned out the best fish...

This was my 2nd visit to Rowena's Inn on the River. A step back in time at the Inn with such gracefully preserved elegance from the original family. The estate is along the Harrison River with golf course, pro shop, cabins closer to the river and a restaurant. Betty Ann's room, overlooking the river was very elegantly appointed with original...

We received a GC for Rowena's as a wedding gift last year, so decided to use it to celebrate our first anniversary; and it did not disappoint. We had a lovely cabin that was perfectly set up with all the amenities. It was both cozy and romantic; a perfect setting to enjoy Mother Nature's contribution which was a spectacular thunderstorm...

The furnishings were authentic antiques, everything we needed was available. The restaurant was great, the view was amazing. We are hoping to make this an annual visit. We have been recommending the Inn and the cottages to our friends.

Hi Rosedale Cowboy, we designed Rowena's to have TVs but our guests are welcome to bring tablets or laptops and connect to complimentary Wifi. The thinking when it was built was for guests to to reconnect and remove the noise of the world. Thank you for sharing your concerns.

The room we stayed in was so tiny and the noise of fan on the air conditioner really bothered. At least I would not recommend Charlie room since all we could see from this room was the roof of the building. If you expect modernized hotel facility this is not it. Even some spider webs were noticed around the ceiling...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Old world opulence blends with new world convenience. Secluded on a 160-acre estate Rowena’s Inn on the River is a grand, English-style manor that was converted into a boutique resort. The rooms offer waterfront or garden views, and sumptuous king-size beds, dressed in deluxe duvets, feather pillows and crisp linens. Large windows bathe the European-infused elegance in natural light, and the furniture exemplifies a timeless stylishness. The cottages have heated-slated floors, deep-soaker jacuzzi tubs for two, glassed-in showers and handcrafted, river rock wood-burning fireplaces.Rowena’s outstanding personalized service and attention to detail is guaranteed with only five rooms in the Inn, a two-bedroom gatehouse and four luxurious cabins. Professional, courteous staff has become an unquestioned hallmark of Rowena’s Inn through a commitment to responsive and attentive service. ... more   less
