Ever crave a holiday minus the hours of transportation it often takes to truly “getaway”? You must consider Rowena’s Inn on the River, located in Harrison Mills, just an hour drive away.
Neighbouring Sandpiper Golf Course and overlooking the Harrison River, this secluded, 160-acre mini-resort offers four cabins and a history-rich, English style estate with guest rooms.
Thanks to a canine-friendly cottage, my mom and I recently paid Rowena’s a visit and were blown away by its charm and coziness. With a locally-minded restaurant on-location, we didn’t even have to leave the property to dine. But the best part was the country-style breakfast that was delivered to our door each morning…eggs benedict, pan-fried potatoes, muffins hot from the oven, fresh fruit, a big jug of orange juice and an even bigger pot of hot coffee. It was an absolute feast and we enjoyed it all in bed, in pyjamas.
When we weren’t enjoying the local food, we visited nearby farms, like Farm House Natural Cheeses and enjoyed massages in a tent by the river from the local masseus.
