A wonderful place with an amazing view. We stayed in Betty Ann's room which was spacious with an amazing bed! There is a beautiful deck facing the river and mountains, overlooking the pool and garden. The house is furnished with the original splendid antiques, each with a story that was shared by our host Betty Ann. Rowena's was one of...

Have been hearing about Rowena's for years and finally went this spring. After a long winter of work, we found this place to be so very soothing and peaceful. Rooms were clean, full of charming history and so comfortable. Loved the views from the terrace. The food was terrific and my husband thoroughly enjoyed the golf next door! Will definitely...

Have been going to Rowena's every year on our anniversary/and or Birthdays for almost 20 years! Once they built the cabins, we always stay in one of them! We have always had a wonderful experience.

We loved the relaxed feeling, and were able to stroll the pathways,(except where they were golfing). The restaurant served great food. The cottages were charming and very private. The swimming pool was a nice option, however it still was a bit chilly when we stayed.

We stayed at this riverside bed and breakfast for a getaway on a beautiful May weekday. We were lucky as we booked the Ivan room and no other guest booked any other room within the house, so we had the top floor to ourselves. The room was spacious with a king sized bed beautiful, authentic antique furnishings and a separated...

Thank you for the review. I can understand the confusion. We have more of a 'hands off' model in the respect that we leave guests to their privacy and to explore freely, but are available when called upon. The resort was designed to be an 'unplugged' experience, hence no TVs in the rooms.

We stayed at one of the four cabins on the property. The cabins are located alongside the golf course, and ours had a picturesque view of the course and the Harrison River. When we arrived at about 6:30, unfortunately the front desk had closed - so the golf-shop guy just handed us the keys to our cabin. OK, but he...

A sunny day at Rowena's transports your soul into an enchanted forest. The cultured landscape of magnificent ornamental trees, punctuated with old growth cedars can only complement the manicured green lawns of the golf course and snow melted azure flowing Harrison River. This is your possession...the view from the inn. The Pretty' s pioneered this oasis over a century ago,...

The inn was beautiful and comfortable and overall an enjoyable stay however i felt that their customer service needs improvement. We were a larger group coming to stay for a wedding and they did not have space ready for us to prepare the bridal party so we had to improvise until it was available. We then discovered later that there...

We booked for a golf and overnight stay. When we arrived we were informed that a movie company had booked the entire inn and we were being moved to a cabin. At first we were presented with the full rate for the cabin which was much more than we had intended. The front desk quickly changed that rate to the...

We booked a cabin on the river. It had a back woods feel and ambiance upon our arrival. It soon became a realization that it was tired and unattended. The main window looking on to the river had popped it's seal and was full of moisture. The upholstered chairs were dirty and lacked a side table for our refreshments. Lights...

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
