These two run one of the best Bed and Breakfasts I've ever seen. The rooms are amazing with beautifully designed amenities and the attention to detail is second to none. Meira is an incredible artist and Marc is a mind blowing cook. I can't wait to go back!

This B&B did not disappoint. Mark and Meira were so welcoming and their home is stunning. the gardens, the breakfast, the 900 thread count sheets - need I say more. We will be spreading the good word and will be staying here again. Highly recommend!

We stayed in Castlegar for one night on our way to Vancouver Island. This has to be the best place to stay in town. The property is a beautiful and art-filled inn with huge comfortable beds, a great bathroom and very accommodating the hosts. We enjoyed the hot tub, a great breakfast and a sound sleep.

My son and I have stayed at Marc's Windborne B&B in the past and once again our stay here was exceptional. The foliage look fantastic and very welcoming. The trees and plants have really matured since our first visit 3 years ago. The accomodations are simply top notch with comfortable beds and linens. The bathrooms are similar to what you... More

The only thing I can say bad about Windborne Bed and Breakfast, was we had to leave. Mark and Mirja were great to our family and we can not think of a single complaint. 5 days were not enough, sitting watching the hummingbirds feed or admiring Marks great lanscaping. Murray, Olga and Elizabeth, we hope to visit again, soon!!

We spent 2 great nights at this fabulous B&B. Our room was superb with a really comfortable bed. Breakfast was very much to our taste. The house and its furnishings are first rate as are the surrounding gardens. It is in a beautiful location and very peaceful. The hosts, Mark and Mirja, are very accommodating and helpful.

Paper mill right across the river; when we attended mill was shut down but some industrial noise. Meals were average; unfortunately received decaf coffee unknown to us ( as another guest requested decaf and we were served from the same coffee pot); requested a key to the room upon settling in and Marc advised for us "don't worry about it"....

Thank you for all of your helpful suggestions. Feedback is very important to us. We now have 2 coffee pots and keys hang in all three of our guest room doors. We also appreciate value for our money. That is why we have 1 room and 2 suites. Each with a different value. $120, $135, and our most luxurious suite,... More

My experience at this Bed and Breakfast was more than comparable to any 5 star hotel I have stayed in. The setting is gorgeous and relaxing, the breakfast is unbeatable, and even though I have seen reviews mentioning the pulp mill across the river, the trees and foliage more than cover it up and there is nothing negative about learning...

Absolutely beautiful setting, one of the best B&B's I've ever stayed at. Only had one night, and the breakfast was beyond compare. The host is a gourmet cook (may I say "chef") and a great host.
