The home is beautiful, very well designed for a bed and breakfast, the house is comfortable and homey and gives you your privacy (each room has it own private bathroom). The meals you recieve are unreal... we recieved ginger and honeycomb pancakes one morning! The most impressive thing to us however, were the people running it. My sister and I... More

Marc has created a wonderful environment - a gorgeous home surrounded by beautiful naturalistic gardens, with a marvelously friendly owner. The showers and beds are terrific! And even though we were leaving REALLY EARLY, he was willing to get up & cook us a yummy breakfast. It's also close to a fantastic pub, the Lion's Head - don't miss it!

If you're travelling in the West Kootenays, you should consider staying at this lovely B&B outside Castlegar BC. Marc, the friendly owner and host, is easy-going, helpful and amusing, and best of all, he knows how to look after important details. You are ensured of a comfy bed and a peaceful sleep in well-appointed rooms. And he didn't even mind... More

From start to finish this B&B is stellar! Marc is an excellent host full energy, concern for your comfort and area knowledge. We felt right at home the moment we walked through the door into this beautiful B&B. Breakfast was a gourmet experience prepped fresh as you enjoy a cup of superb coffee. This is a gem and one not...

We were looking for a weekend getaway from Spokane before the arrival of our second child in September. The accommodations were spectacular from the beautiful gardens and location by the river, the spa like amenities, and the candied salmon breakfast. We are already planning our next trip back.

Sometimes it's hard to put into words. Windborne is a fabulous house, Marc and Mirja are lovely, welcoming and friendly: food was great, rooms are just super, they have gorgeous gardens and, yes, there are hummingbirds. But they have something else too, the something-you-can't-quite-put-a-finger-on that makes a place special. If I could explain it I'd be a writer. Suffice to... More

We stopped here for a night on a 3-day weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our room was cozy and comfortable and we had a wonderful night's sleep. Mark and Mirja are welcoming and lovely people. Marc prepared a truly delicious breakfast of fresh fruit and ginger pancakes with ricotta cheese and fresh honeycomb. We highly recommend this gem in Castlegar.

A very well kept town with amazing sculpture, but the highlight of our trip was this B & B! After a long day of traveling from the USA we were greeted by Marc who served us a welcome cup of tea.
