We decided for our honeymoon to take a road trip with no set destinations or schedule... We had hoped to stay first at Christina Lake, but when it was packed (we know now how busy it is) we were going to try for Creston so we could wake up and go pick our own fruit. We sat in downtown Castlegar phoning all the hotels and B&B's in Creston as it got later and later and everywhere was booked. I finally looked for a B&B in Castlegar, growing tired and not wanting to be irritated and exhausted on our honeymoon. When I saw the Windborne's amazing reviews on tripadvisor, I assumed it would be expensive and kept phoning around.
We were starting to get very desperate as it seemed that 10pm on a weeknight is not the best time to book your room for that night. Finally I just called Windborne, and for the first time all evening, the person that answered was friendly and professional. He told us that he had a room left that was no more expensive than a moderately priced hotel room, asked if we needed directions, and said he would wait up for us.
When we arrived, he made sure we had everything we needed and asked US what we would like for breakfast rather than just making standard fare for everyone staying there. The room was immaculately clean, very comfortable, and much welcomed luxury after a day in a hot car.
Marc, went above and beyond to ensure our accommodations were the perfect haven on what could otherwise have been a very stressful night. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the room was beautifully decorated, and we had our own private balcony. The bathroom was like a spa resort's bathroom with a raised, jetted tub, and great water pressure in the beautiful shower (who doesn't love good water pressure?). They even had towel animals, robes, and adjustable lighting...
We were left to sleep in and he was more than happy to provide breakfast at 9:30 instead of the usual 8:30 as we had arranged the previous night. I feel like I would need to leave another whole review on the breakfast... Lots of fresh fruit/berries, yogurt, candied salmon, scrambled eggs... truly a gourmet breakfast with amazing presentation and great company. I didn't think it would be possible to exceed our expectations based on previous reviews, but Marc made us feel pampered and welcome. We would happily stay there again!
The whole house is beautiful!
