The rooms are beautiful and the beds are very comfortable very nice people to stay with. I had a lengthy stay and I would recomment it to all my friends and relatives. Thanks Marc and Mirja for all your hospitality.

Room Tip: The nicest room is the one with the hot tub, but they are all beautiful...

We drove from Winnipeg and finally spent two nights in Castlegar as a home-base to deliver cases of paintings to Gallery2 in Grand Forks, BC for an upcoming exhibition. The Windborne was the perfect place in many ways. Marc greeted us at the door and promptly moved the garden furniture off the paved patio so we could pull the bed of our truck with said paintings beneath the overhang for overnight protection from rain until we could deliver them the following morning. After we toured the spacious common living area and kitchen we were invited to meet Mirya, the artist and co-host, who was painting thoughtfully but welcomed our intrusion. Mirya showed us her studio that she shares with a community of local artists and students of art. She graciously offered us to paint too and guided us up the back mountain for a hike. Marc worked to have the garden manicured and spoke of his plans for terracing the back so people can have an even more elaborate setting for the weddings and celebrations they like to book here. The breakfasts were both scrumpdilly-icious! Marc is very accommodating with what we wanted/liked to eat, but we could not have had a better breakfast in a restaurant. Not even close. The coffee is Kicking Horse the sheets are for royalty and the bed was the first one ever that my husband with chronic back pain could sleep on without aching in the morning. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, Mirya and Marc. We look forward to seeing you again!

This was our first time staying in a B&B and what a wonderful experience! The well-designed house surrounded by a beautiful garden, clean rooms with comfortable beds, and the wonderful hosts Mirja and Mark who make you feel welcome.

This is the first time we have stayed here and Marc and Mirja are excellent hosts. There B&B overlooks the river and was custom built for the traveller. The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. The location close to Castelgar makes it very handy for travellers, yet is on a quiet section of Robson B.C. The breakfast we had was the best we had on or whole trip, while the room prining is excellent!

We will come back next year for sure....

I stayed here on a business trip and it felt like a holiday!! The B&B is beautiful, clean and well appointed. The hosts are wonderful folks that love what they do. Gourmet breakfasts made to order at whatever time I requested! I will continue to go back whenever I am in Castlegar.

This was our second stay at Windborne, and we'll return again and again! We love the luxurious yet homey surroundings and always look forward to devouring Marc's delectable, hearty breakfasts. Marc and Mirja are extremely amiable and accomodating hosts, and make us feel totally welcome. This trip, they even gave me free reign of their kitchen to bake my sister's wedding cake! The gardens are an amazing array of colour and variety: a perfect backdrop for photography. My family and I give Windborne top marks!
