About Jessica Boisjoli

We are a family of 3, myself (Jess), Jay, and our new son Chase (9 months old). We looked at the property without the intention of ever running a B&B/guest house/vacation rental, but the previous owners conveyed to us the perks (meeting new people etc) and so we took over their business. 4 months later we became pregnant. Now, we've been running the guest house/B&B for nearly 2 years! Jay works hard as a deckhand on tugboats and has lots of stories to tell guests about such colourful experiences, as well as hunting & fishing stories. He is a wealth of information about BC, as he is a BC boy at heart! Myself, I love to travel. We hope that our son grows up to enjoy both travelling and being at home around nature.

Jessica Boisjoli purchased this guest house in 2010

Why Jessica Boisjoli chose Chilliwack

We actually never planned to own a vacation rental/B&B/guest sort of just 'fell into it'. But it was the best decision we ever made! We love the area and the numerous perks, including being surrounded by nature and any outdoor activity you can imagine. Jay and I always wanted a nice compromise between living in the middle of nowhere and right in town. We live in the country now and yet only 10 minutes to town! It's a perfect location!

What makes this guest house unique

Given the opportunity to run a B&B guest house has opened up so many opportunities for us. We've met amazing people from all over the world, Denmark, UK, US, Canada, Latvia, Switzerland, India, & more! What is especially great is the fact that we've made friends in the process. We are more than willing to spend time with our guests if they'd like to spend time with us, and give them information about the area and even show them around a bit. A beer or two has been seems to be a universal language! We're lucky to learn about different cultures and ways of life. For me, it's like bringing the travelling to me! We hope our son grows up to appreciate the diversity that this world offers, due to his experience in meeting people from all different cultures. We are very fortunate to have this property and to have met such incredible guests! We look forward to meeting more in the future!

Guest House - cozy and nice

  • 5 of 5

My grandsons (6 & 8) and I spent the Family Day long week at Riverband Guest House. We loved it. The place was spotless, very comfortable and clean beds and couches and with an amazing wood burning stove. It was great that we were on the ground floor and I didn't have to care too much for the kids running around as they get all energized by being in a different house.

The only downside is the lack of a sink but I managed to prepare our breakfast and light meals without too much difficulty. If you prefer to have elaborated meals for many more people you could find it a bit challenging. The place has all the other amenities that makes you feel comfortable and at home.

The neighbouhood has a lot to offer. Great trails along the Chilliwack River and the nearby hills. Cultus lake being just 6km away was a great place for the kids to enjoy the playground and walk around.

Jessica and Jay were amazing hosts and provided me with lots of suggestions as to where to go and things to do with the kids.

I totally recommend the property.

Know Before You Go

  • 1 of 5

Rented this property knowing before we went that there was no kitchen. Understood the only heat source was a wood burning stove. All true and was prepared. What I was not prepared for was this 'guesthouse' actually being the home owner's basement. There is a table that seats 6, the wood burning stove and 2 small couches in the room that also holds the counter and full size fridge-cozy is an understatement.. That being said, you have your own entrance. The door that does connect up to the main living level is locked-you from the owners. It is also in the middle of a crowded neighborhood. The river is a quick walk, but not visible from the property.The picture of the deck with the large table is off the main living area of the owners-above the basement. It was winter, so we didn't use it. Game room was awesome and our kids didn't mind the freezing cold to go play! There was also another renter staying in the one room 'cabin'. Parking was a little crowded. We had 2 cars between the 2 families, so one had to park on the street-no big deal. The owners were very nice and knowledgable. Our family camps in the summer, so we had no problem with 'roughing it', if you will. We brought crockpots to make our evening meals and had prepared breakfast items ahead of time. If you are one to eat out, then that's a non issue. We like to cook and share meals and play board games after our day of exploring the area, so it was a little difficutl for what we use a rental for on vacation. Heating the area was not an issue. We did get up a couple of times a night to put more fire in the stove. We also had to restock our firewood, but not biggie. My point to those looking into this property is just be prepared for what you are getting. If you have rented VBRO before and are looking at, just know you'll truly be 'guest's staying in the basement not renting an individual property.

Owner's Response: I'm disappointed to hear you were disappointed! Had I known you were at all displeased, I would have helped you find alternative accommodations. Everyone seemed very happy while they were here, so I was surprised to read this review. All of the information necessary for people to know what they are getting is listed in the description of the property in the listing, so that there are no surprises. The best option for knowing what you're getting is to read the description. We have had hundreds of groups here and our proximity to the river (a 3 minute walk) and to outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, and rafting are what draws people to our particular location. Coming in the winter limits your ability to enjoy what it is that is offered in the area and what the main appeal of our property is....location! People's perspectives are all different about what is great and what is not and many people have loved coming here and find our location to be remote yet still accessible to amenities (and don't see the location as a busy subdivision... properties in the area range in size for .5 acres to 10+ acres). The deck, although on the 2nd level, is available for everyone to use...although, it is best used in the summer months. I wish I had known you were at all unhappy as I would have helped you find alternative accommodations. Also, perhaps staying at a different time of year when you could have enjoyed the mountains, rivers, and lakes would have changed your experience. I wish you well in the future!

Nice location very close to river. Very helpful and friendly owners.

  • 4 of 5

The place was nice and warm with a games room near the suites. The beds were very comfortable. No cell phone reception but Wi-Fi available. Very clean and well maintained property inside and out. Fishing opportunities throughout the river very close by. Fifteen minutes from town if you need or forget anything. I (we) enjoyed our stay as it is in a beautiful part of the Fraser Valley. Mountains, wildlife and rivers are very scenic.

I could not find any frying pans but there was a hot plate, one pot, microwave and BBQ.

Again, the owners are great and very helpful regarding fishing, descriptions of the area and things to do locally.

Basement suite, great area , friendly hosts

  • 3 of 5

Probably not as great in the winter. Heated by a wood stove that required filling through out day and night. Didn't realize that the guest rooms were in a basement and the games room was in an unheated part of a workshop (though there was a space heater) in another building.

Although, we expected no stove, we did not realize that there was no kitchen sink and we had to wash dishes in a basin from a tap in the bathtub. Awkward for a group of 6 adults, 2 children that relied on all meals at home.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry to hear that your stay was not what you expected. When you checked out I was completely unaware that you had any issues. The only disappointment that you mentioned to me was regarding the fact that part of your group had come here with the flu and that you all weren't able to spend the quality time together that you had hoped. Had I known about any concerns within my control, I would have gladly tried to improve things for you. The wood stove is a feature that most people love, as it adds something that many people don't get to experience in their own homes. It is also a great way for fishermen to dry their gear. The games room is something we added as a bonus (without changing our pricing). It is great in the summertime, as the large door can be opened to enjoy the stars but of course it can be chilly in January (which is when you came). Indeed the time of year wasn't ideal for outdoor activities, although I do recall you mentioned you were able to make it out for a fire at the river. Spring, Summer, and Fall are ideal for hiking, rafting, kayaking, sight-seeing, boating etc. There is a lot to do in the area when the weather is on your side :) Winter-time is best for snow-shoeing or even just relaxing with family/friends (which of course wasn't really an option with part of your family being sick). When we have a group that only books the guest house (and not the cabin) we tend to do the dishes for those groups (as we have a dishwasher)...many guests enjoy getting out of having to do dishes ;) We've had hundreds of happy guests over the years of being here. The people who are happiest are the ones who are able to spend time with their friends/family and get out and enjoy the area and all it has to offer. Unfortunately for you, circumstances (weather and part of your group coming here with the flu) prevented these things from being in place, so I understand your disappointment especially since you were the coordinator of the holiday. Getting family together can be difficult as it is let alone when things don't go as planned. I wish you the best in the future and hope you and your family can enjoy some quality time together when everyone is feeling 100% :) Kind regards, Jessica

Perfect place for simple get away and to unwind

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for simple get away especially for family. The place is easy to find, clean and cozy. Jessica and Jay are friendly and accommodating. A walk by the Chilliwack river is good to unwind, and wifi is a plus coz when the kids get bored they can sit down and play with their games.
