“Another great stay at a Fabulous B & B!!”
Reviewed 22 May 2012

This is our second stay at this wonderful establishment. Mark and Mirja are such amazing and welcoming hosts, the interior atmosphere is so warm and inviting, and the grounds are nothing short of spectacular. Over 400 iris blossoms just waiting to burst into color, and dozens of other varieties of plants and flowers make this spot perfect for relaxing and unwinding. The breakfast was so delicious (again!!), and I hope we can come back soon - thanks so much!!

Room Tip: We stayed in t he Moonlight Suite both times, and it is beautiful. Furnished to perfection, with a...

My husband and I travelled to canada for the first time and stayed in B&B's, also for our first time, and both experiences shall never be forgotten.
I've stayed in some 5* hotels but this B&B is definitely more memorable for all the right reasons. Marc and Mirja have a wonderful home which offers plenty of privacy if desired and spacious living rooms if your feeling sociable. Breakfast is immense!! We were asked each night what we would prefer (as my husband is picky about how he likes eggs) and as we were staying for 5 nights we had plenty of variety with lots of fruit to accompany. We stayed in the moonlight suite which was beautiful and extremely comfortable, probably had the best nights sleep in a very long time here. Also be sure to visit some stunning areas which are all either a short drive and walk from this B&B like beaches, hikes and waterfalls. Marc and Mirja were a great help with directions.
We can't thank them enough for their great hospitality and for opening their home to us. I hope that if anyone is travelling to this area or nearby that they stay at Windbourne B&B as I guarentee you will not be disappointed.
P.S. do not be discouraged by comments about the pulp mill we were not bothered by this at all and to be honest if you look out the window at night it's actually quite pretty because all you can see is lights over the river!

Thank you for your great review. It was our pleasure to host the both of you and are glad you enjoyed your first trip to Canada. I enjoyed making breakfast and our conversations. The pictures that you posted in your review were some of the nicest pictures I have seen in the area. We especially liked the Moonlight suite picture.

I'm a return guest at Windborne B&B, and will keep coming back when I'm in the area for business and personal. Marc and Mirja are great hosts and make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. The home is beautifully laid out for privacy between all guests, yet open to provide welcomed conversation amongst the owners and guests alike. The house is adorned with magnificent paintings and personal touches, the rooms/bed are super comfortable, and the breakfasts fabulous. I highly recommend this high end B&B, you won't be disappointed.

Windborne B&B was my home for approx 9 weeks while working on a project in Castlegar. Having never stayed at a B&B I was a little apprehensive, but upon arrival Marc and Mirja made me feel right at home.

The house is very spacious, immaculately kept and sits on a beautiful garden facing the river. Parking is ample, and the hot tub was the perfect way to end a hard day at the office!

I stayed in the Waterfall Suite. The queen sized bed was extremely comfortable. The room was beautifully decorated (with paintings by Marc's wife, artist Mirja Valhala), very spacious and had everything you could possibly need including an on suite bathroom with jetted shower!

Marc was very accommodating with breakfast and time. His coconut ginger pancakes with ricotta cheese and real honeycomb were outstanding! He is very personable and it was a pleasure to chat with him over breakfast every day.

During my stay I saw a lot of guests come and go, but everyone had the same reaction, the Windborne B&B truly is an amazing place! I would highly recommend the Windborne B&B to anyone travelling to Castlegar!

Stayed at the Windborne for business travel in April. Was my second stay there. It's a very comfortable b&b, with gracious hosts and good meals. The b&b is quite large and private enough to accomodate meetings if you'd need that. Comfortable rooms, nice and clean and the hosts make you feel like you at home.

I would not stay anywhere else in Castlegar.

Yes, there is a pulp mill across the river - bring ear plugs. But I would take that over staying in outdated and dirty hotels in the area.

Each room has a tv as well, which is nice if you don't feel like socializing.

Breakfasts were quite good, and Marc uses a lot of fresh ingredients which is appreciated.

The river is quite pretty, sans the mill :)

This is the perfect B & B in every way.
On a 5 day fishing trip to Castlegar my friend and I after a review of the hotels in the area, decided to stay at the Windborne B & B. This was our first time ever at a B & B and obviously we were apprehensive but we thought we would give it a try anyway. And are we glad we did! From the moment we arrived we knew we had made the right choice.
The modern B&B accommodations are a separated area of the house with its own entrance and parking area, and designed for discriminating people. The bedrooms were as good as any found in 5 star hotels plus there was a big screen TV area, a comfortable sitting area overlooking the river and a centre aisle cooking and breakfast area.
Mark was more than a host and cook. Mark was accommodating to our every need and truly has a passion to make your stay an experience you will remember. He achieved this with banners flying. His breakfasts were a true delight.
As dog lovers we were pleased to see two canines that once in a while would come in for a back scratch and a tickle behind the ear while we watched TV. Also be sure to look at the outstanding paintings by co-host Mirja Vahalla that adorn the Windborne B & B walls and truly makes the Windborne “a place to treat your soul”.
There can be no other place to stay in the Castlegar area than the Windborne B & B.

Room Tip: All rooms are 5 star plus.
