Year Purchased: 1980
About the owner: Jill and Allen Married in our Riverside Garden in 1982. 'Still crazy (and married) after all these years'
Why the Owner Chose Ladner:
We have always loved living on the Fraser River and opened the Duck Inn in 1996 in order to share our river lifestyle with others.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the ever changing world of the river. Swans, ducks and eagles are some of our fascinating daily visitors. Canoeing takes us to marsh islands and other delightful spots. Dinner on the dock brings sunsets to die for!
