We and another couple stayed one night at this imposing Victorian house which stands grandly on a quiet street within walking distance to downtown Revelstoke. There was plenty of free parking. The owner Edna Mae is a delight: she was very welcoming when we arrived, and on the following morning sat with us at the elegant and substantial breakfast and talked to us about the house and the town. There are 3 bedrooms in total, all of them on the third floor (i.e. the top of the house), so not ideal for those with heavy and/or bulky luggage. The rooms we occupied were both well furnished with period pieces and a comfortable bed. Our bathroom had an imposing four-legged bathtub but only a hand-held shower attachment. Altogether this was a pleasant and memorable place to stay, at a fair price.
