Thanks to the efforts of our hosts, this historical building is being maintained with loving attention to detail so that current and future generations will be able to experience a bit of what life was like in Victorian times. The huge house is a wonderful piece of architecture in a quiet but convenient part of downtown Revelstoke. In a few minutes' walk, you are in the midst of the shops, restaurants and movie theatre that constitute 'downtown.'
Our breakfast was the highlight of our stay: a delicious and healthy starter and main dish which were somehow more of a pleasure because they were chosen for us by Edna-Mae. Our hosts generously gave us their company over a long shared breakfast, during which we learned much about both them and the provinces they've lived in.
Our room, the Begbie, was small but luxurious and totally quiet. The only drawback to the historical experience was the clawfoot tub, which would be a poor substitute for a shower during a longer stay. The guests' sitting room is small, but cozy and comfortable, and it was lovely to be served tea there in the evening.
