“Best place in Castlegar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2012

Stayed at the Windborne for business travel in April. Was my second stay there. It's a very comfortable b&b, with gracious hosts and good meals. The b&b is quite large and private enough to accomodate meetings if you'd need that. Comfortable rooms, nice and clean and the hosts make you feel like you at home.

I would not stay anywhere else in Castlegar.

Yes, there is a pulp mill across the river - bring ear plugs. But I would take that over staying in outdated and dirty hotels in the area.

Each room has a tv as well, which is nice if you don't feel like socializing.

Breakfasts were quite good, and Marc uses a lot of fresh ingredients which is appreciated.

The river is quite pretty, sans the mill :)

This is the perfect B & B in every way.
On a 5 day fishing trip to Castlegar my friend and I after a review of the hotels in the area, decided to stay at the Windborne B & B. This was our first time ever at a B & B and obviously we were apprehensive but we thought we would give it a try anyway. And are we glad we did! From the moment we arrived we knew we had made the right choice.
The modern B&B accommodations are a separated area of the house with its own entrance and parking area, and designed for discriminating people. The bedrooms were as good as any found in 5 star hotels plus there was a big screen TV area, a comfortable sitting area overlooking the river and a centre aisle cooking and breakfast area.
Mark was more than a host and cook. Mark was accommodating to our every need and truly has a passion to make your stay an experience you will remember. He achieved this with banners flying. His breakfasts were a true delight.
As dog lovers we were pleased to see two canines that once in a while would come in for a back scratch and a tickle behind the ear while we watched TV. Also be sure to look at the outstanding paintings by co-host Mirja Vahalla that adorn the Windborne B & B walls and truly makes the Windborne “a place to treat your soul”.
There can be no other place to stay in the Castlegar area than the Windborne B & B.

Room Tip: All rooms are 5 star plus.

After many stays in Castlegar at the local hotels, it was time to try staying at a B & B.
We were not disappointed, the hospitality of the owners, the cleanliness of the rooms and the quality of the breakfasts will no doubt bring us back.
Thank you.

Hi, I found the owner to be very congenial and friendly. The rooms are high class with high quality wood finishing, well furnished, warm and quiet environments. The view of the river and the mountains surrounding it are gorgeous. If you want a great breakfast and a restful, comfortable sleep I highly recommend this bed and breakfast!

I am so happy over the chance meeting we had with our future hosts in a little local cafe. Previous night we stayed in a small rundown motel but for only few dollars more we were treated for the most comfortable beds one could wish for ( if you feel any lumps you have a princess syndrome) and a wonderful breakfast. Combined with great hunting and fishing this area is the tops and so is this B & B.
