From the South:

Approximately 10 minutes from Ladysmith you'll pass the Nanaimo airport on you right.  You'll then go over a small green bridge (Haslam Creek Bridge) and will see Spruston Road on your left.  There is no left turn allowed, so you'll have to go north past Spruston Road, and once you go over the Nanaimo River Bridge there is a small right hand turn lane (Nanaimo River Road).  Take it; you'll loop around under the highway and then go up a hill; take a sharp left at the top of the hill (before the railroad tracks) and it will take you back down to the Island Highway.  "Yield" to southbound traffic and head south onto the Island Highway.  Then turn right onto Spruston Road (there's a flashing overhead amber light) - it's the first right-hand turn once you pass the Country Kitchen Restaurant (red roof) on the left.

Once you're on Spruston Road go approximately 1 kilometre until you see Riverbend Road on your right.  Turn right onto Riverbend then take the first right-hand driveway (just past our sign).  You'll then see two driveway entrances - go through the right-hand cedar gate, then keep going straight, down a long hill, to reach the River House (blue roof on your right-hand side).  Our house is on the left - you'll see it when you drive down the hill.


From the North:

If you're coming from the Duke Point ferry terminal follow the signs to Victoria.
From the Island Highway, approximately 6 minutes from the Duke Point ferry turn-off you'll pass the Country Kitchen Restaurant (red roof) on your left.  Take the next right-hand turn (there's a flashing overhead amber light); you'll be on Spruston Road.  Go approximately 1 kilometre until you see Riverbend Road on your right.  Turn right onto Riverbend then take the first right-hand driveway (just past our sign).  You'll then see two driveway entrances - go through the right-hand cedar gate, then keep going straight, down a long hill, to reach the River House (blue roof on your right-hand side).  Our house is on the left - you'll see it when you drive down the hill.
