waterfront wildlife

"Located in the sleepy fishing and farming community of Ladner, River Run Cottages are the stuff of picture postcards.  You're in your own private community, just you and a view of the river, shared with the ducks, swans, eagles and seals." Vancouver, the Ultimate Guide

Distinctive Features

Along the boardwalk, flowers cascade from baskets and ducks glide gracefully by. On the river, you may spot a sailboat heading out to sea or a fish boat chugging by with a load of fresh salmon. Swing open the front gate and be transported into paradise. Choose one of four exquisitely appointed waterfront bed and breakfast units .

As you enter your cottage you'll be greeted by soft music, a freshly baked treat and a wood fire, ready to light.  Settle into a plush chair with a glass of sherry or a cup of freshly brewed tea.  Relax, listen to the gentle rush of the water, and feel your troubles melt away.  Included in your stay is a gourmet breakfast which may include fresh squeezed orange juice, seasonal local fruit, fresh pastries, and one of our trademark hot breakfast dishes such as Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, River Run Eggs or Caramel Apple French Toast. (For a taste of what awaits you, try making one of our favorite recipes.)

There are barbecues on the property for your use.  Cottages are smoke-free but smoking is permitted outdoors.  We recommend bringing flat, rubber-soled shoes to wear on the decks that surround your retreat.  Since the tides vary up to 12 feet, the ramps can become steep and slippery.

For reservations, please phone, fax or email us. You can also use our Reservation Inquiry.  Or call us about The Heritage Suite or The Fraser Suite located in the Handford  House for short and long term vacation rental of 7 days or more.
