River Run Cottages - Baby on the way..Weekly and Advance Bookings

August 2011 Issue.

Summer was slow in coming but when it got here...WOW !

All Barb's work on the flowers is something to be seen. It was a slow start to the growing season, but now the containers and hanging baskets are blossoming with flowers and all the fresh herbs are ready to use. We are even eating our own tomatoes at breakfast.

Tomatoes are not the only thing gowing here at River Run. We are starting onto the baby watch as the end of August nears. Our daughter Andrea and husband Adam are expecting our first grand child due 4 September but every mid-wife in Ladner says it will be earlier.

The baby's room has been painted twice, the furniture has been repainted and the new crib & bassinette have been set up. Overnight bags have been packed and repacked. All this in the after B&B hours.

As you can see Barb is constantly switching modes from Innkeeper to Nana and back again, moment to moment. So to help her out we have been looking at some different accommodation options here at River Run

We are currently running a new time limited Special:

For the price of $50 you can purchase an Advanced Booking Certificate and save between 30% - 50% when you book in advance for stays in September thru December.

The Advanced Booking Certificate

50% discount off when booking 60 days or more prior to your stay; or

30% discount off when booking 30 days in advance.


  • Valid for use with all cottages 2 night minimum booking, 01 Sept – 22 Dec 2011
  • Payment due at time of booking
  • ½ of $50 certificate cost will be credited towards your reservation
  • Not valid with any other discounts, normal cancellation policies apply
Weekly Rates for longer term stays on the River.

In addition we will be offering for the first time a weekly rate for longer term stays on the river along with our nightly Bed and Breakfast options. These weekly rates are for self-catering and allow you to enjoy the river at your own pace. Additionally our two course breakfast can still be ordered when you feel the need to be pambered.

If you are interested please give Will a call and see what is available.

Until we meet again we wish you all good health and look forward to your next visit.

South Delta newspaper Readers name River Run Cottages B&B #1

The South Delta newspaper the Optimist every year runs a contest where local shoppers can vote for their favourite business. The two page entry form asks the question which local business is your choice as the best of its class in over 80 categories.

Barb and I are very pleased that since taking over River Run Cottages Bed and Breakfast we have been once again honoured with the award of the best B&B in South Delta. This 2011 Award brings to us to 11 consecutive awards, one for each year we have been in business.

We have always prided ourselves as being committed to our local community first. Supporting local causes and charities is one of the first objectives we set out for ourselves in the beginning.

It has paid dividends and the local support has blossomed from an off-season trade to a year round trade where we are seeing two and sometimes third generation guests' encourage their children and grand-parents alike to visit through gift certificates and special celebrations.

Thank you South Delta and thank you to the Delta Optimist newspaper for once again for awarding us the Readers' Choice award for 2011.

New look at River Run Cottages B&B

Check out the new Northwest Room!

April 2011 Issue.

This winter was a time for change in the Northwest Room.

The new look retains the River Rock Waterfall shower but includes an updated bathroom area and expanded bedroom.

Now, after your shower you can reach the driftwood bed from both sides,all the while your toes are warmed by a thick plush carpet underneath.

The kitchen nook has been moved into the sitting area where we have added more room for the single murphy bed and to read by the wood burning fireplace.

We also found time to update the Keeper's Quarters bathroom with new lighting, cabinet and granite sink.

Look us up or call if you want to stop by for a look to plan your next visit.
