Willows Inn Announcement

"Temporary closure"

Willows Inn in North Vancouver BC , Canada has been welcoming guests from around the world for more than 15 years. It has been a wonderful experience for us, your hosts, Pauline and Keith.

Unfortunately due to the current health crisis we now need to close temporarily. One of our household suffers from a serious asthmatic condition so we are currently in self isolation. At the moment we all feel well.

We send our very best wishes to all our past guests and hope everyone stays well. We look forward to meeting again in more normal times

With very best wishes for your health and well being.

Keith, Pauline and Antonia

Willows Inn

Willows Inn, your “home from home” in Vancouver, is situated in a convenient central location on the North Shore, 15 minutes from the majestic mountains and ski slopes and 10 minutes by car or bus from the bustling North Vancouver waterfront with a variety of restaurants, cafés and shops.

Downtown Vancouver is 30 minutes by direct bus ride, or by bus and ferry. The resort town of Whistler is a scenic 1.5 hour drive along the “Sea To Sky” Highway where you will view spectacular ocean and mountain vistas.

At Willows Inn you will receive a warm welcome from your hosts Pauline and Keith who have been receiving Canadian and International guests for over 15 years and go to great lengths to ensure guests have a memorable and comfortable stay at Willows. In Spanish there is an expression “Mi casa es tu casa”; “My house is your house”, - this is the welcome you will receive at Willows Inn.

Bedrooms are bright and airy with views of the mountains or the lights of downtown Vancouver.

Guests are welcome to make use of the south facing gardens and patio areas around the house to absorb the sunshine or for quiet reading. There is a comfortable guest lounge with TV, DVD etc and wireless Internet is available.


Breakfast is an extensive continental menu with pastries, cereal, fruit, yogurt, cheese, ham, and of course fresh coffee or tea.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Keith and Pauline.

Winter Opening

Willows Inn is normally closed from November to March, however, during the winter months we can often make special arrangements to open to accommodate longer stays of say five days or more. Willows Inn is ideally situated for the three North Shore ski slopes, Cypress Bowl, Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour, which are less than 15 minutes away from our doorstep.

The world famous ski resort of Whistler is only an hour and a half by car along the Sea To Sky Highway

Downtown is 30 minutes by bus or 20 minutes by car.

On certain days during the month of December you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the festively illuminated "Carol Ships" gliding majestically around the harbour close to the local parks and beaches.

Also - don't miss the incredible display of magical lighting in the gardens of the Capilano Suspension Bridge.

Please e-mail or phone Pauline or Keith to discuss your winter stay requirements and check availability and rates.
