“Quick and enjoyable visit”
Reviewed 1 October 2012

For business trips, I almost always stay at a hotel and rarely do I stay in B&B's unless on vacation with family or friends. In this case, I was only staying one night in Castlegar, BC and needed accommodation. Most hotels were sold out and on the lower end of the qualilty scale. Apparently the local P&P mill was getting overhauled and the rooms locally were taken up by workers for the week.

I found Windborne B&B and took a chance. It was like going home away from home. Travel is sometimes lonely and Marc and his wife were welcoming, friendly and genuinely interested in my visit! The house was beautiful and done to the utmost of quality and taste. Very clean, high end features and extremely comfortable. I felt relaxed and at home during my short visit. Marc made a wonderful breakfast which included "candied salmon in eggs" and some of the best coffee I have ever tasted.

If, like me, you prefer a higher end and better quality facility, this is the place to go! I will now consider B&B locals whenever I travel but not sure if anyone can match this place....

Thank you for taking you time to write this review. We are glad you took a chance on Windborne B&B. I am happy that you enjoyed our breakfast. It is one of our most popular dishes. Hopefully you well stay in many B&B's now. Most B&B owners are very proud of their homes as they should be and they love to show case for all their guests. We look forward to seeing you in any future trips in the area.

My wife and I stayed at the Windborne 21 to 24 September 2012. The facilities were excellent. extremely clean rooms, new and modern building and furnishings. Marc was a very gracious host, who went out of his way to make us comfortable. His enthusiasm regarding breakfast meals shone like a beacon and it was reflected in the delicious food he prepared, he obviously enjoys what he does.

We had interesting conversations at breakfast and in the evening when he was relaxing nice of him to spend the time and be corial with his guests.

The bed was comfortable we both slept very well. Marc prepared breakfast very early for us on the last day since he knew we wanted to leave early next day as we had a 9 hour trip back to Vancouver.

I highly recommend the Windborne, we will definitely stay there next year

Room Tip: We went for the Driftwood room as an economical measure. However, the upgrade to the waterfall suite...

We couldn't have stayed at a more enjoyable place in Castlegar. After checking availability and price at local hotels we chose Windborne B&B. We were not disappointed. It was by far the best place we have ever stayed in the Kootenays. Marc and Mirja made us feel like special guests from the moment we arrived. The beds were comfortable. The room well equipped with everything we needed. Breakfasts were amazing! We stayed three nights and will definitely return the next time we are in the area.

Across the street from the Columbia River, and directly across the street from the Celgar Pulp mill, this is a beautiful building. The host and his wife are pleasant and very accommodating. Some of the room amenities-bed, bath, seating-were not to our taste, perhaps more enjoyable to younger folks. The breakfast was less than advertised, but tasteful. We enjoy our privacy and the Driftwood suite did not have comfortable seating-that was found only in the public spaces, which did not appeal to us. A very nice facility and very pleasant people. In Castlegar it is certainly an excellent choice.

Room Tip: Driftwood has a shower only. At least one other has a bath. Guests are encouraged, by the seating, t...

We stayed two nights and enjoyed our stay immensely. Marc and Mirja made us feel very welcome. Our room was well furnished and the bed was extremely comfortable. TheIr house is very spacious and clean. We had two great breakfast meals and excellent conversation with our hosts. Highly recommended.

The rooms are beautifully finished and the beds excellent - a relaxing place to stay with very welcoming hosts. Mirja's art and Marc's garden add an extra dimension to the experience. Marc's breakfast was very creative and delicious.

We so enjoyed our stay at the Windborne Bed and Breakfast in Castlegar, B.C. Marc and Mirja are such wonderful hosts. When we arrived they greeted us with such a warm and inviting welcome. The room we chose to stay in was the Moonlight suite. Very beautifully decorated suite with the most amazing airjetted tub for 2 to the tall tiled shower with jets for your back will sure keep you coming back to stay at this hidden gem! Our breakfast was five star all the way. If you have any certain needs for your breakfast Marc is quick to take special attention. You can also enjoy the many paintings about the house as Mirja is a artist. I am looking forward to my next stay with Marc and Mirja again in the future as their B&B is a must stay when traveling through Castlegar, BC. Thank you so very much again for everything Marc and Mirja!! I will be telling all of my friends about you!!
