“Why stay in a hotel when you can stay in an amazing B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We couldn't have stayed at a more enjoyable place in Castlegar. After checking availability and price at local hotels we chose Windborne B&B. We were not disappointed. It was by far the best place we have ever stayed in the Kootenays. Marc and Mirja made us feel like special guests from the moment we arrived. The beds were comfortable. The room well equipped with everything we needed. Breakfasts were amazing! We stayed three nights and will definitely return the next time we are in the area.

Across the street from the Columbia River, and directly across the street from the Celgar Pulp mill, this is a beautiful building. The host and his wife are pleasant and very accommodating. Some of the room amenities-bed, bath, seating-were not to our taste, perhaps more enjoyable to younger folks. The breakfast was less than advertised, but tasteful. We enjoy our privacy and the Driftwood suite did not have comfortable seating-that was found only in the public spaces, which did not appeal to us. A very nice facility and very pleasant people. In Castlegar it is certainly an excellent choice.

Room Tip: Driftwood has a shower only. At least one other has a bath. Guests are encouraged, by the seating, t...

We stayed two nights and enjoyed our stay immensely. Marc and Mirja made us feel very welcome. Our room was well furnished and the bed was extremely comfortable. TheIr house is very spacious and clean. We had two great breakfast meals and excellent conversation with our hosts. Highly recommended.

The rooms are beautifully finished and the beds excellent - a relaxing place to stay with very welcoming hosts. Mirja's art and Marc's garden add an extra dimension to the experience. Marc's breakfast was very creative and delicious.

We so enjoyed our stay at the Windborne Bed and Breakfast in Castlegar, B.C. Marc and Mirja are such wonderful hosts. When we arrived they greeted us with such a warm and inviting welcome. The room we chose to stay in was the Moonlight suite. Very beautifully decorated suite with the most amazing airjetted tub for 2 to the tall tiled shower with jets for your back will sure keep you coming back to stay at this hidden gem! Our breakfast was five star all the way. If you have any certain needs for your breakfast Marc is quick to take special attention. You can also enjoy the many paintings about the house as Mirja is a artist. I am looking forward to my next stay with Marc and Mirja again in the future as their B&B is a must stay when traveling through Castlegar, BC. Thank you so very much again for everything Marc and Mirja!! I will be telling all of my friends about you!!

We arrived at the Windborne and were immediately made to feel at home by our host.
Our room was spacious, elegantly furnished and had it's own private patio overlooking the
lovely garden. Our ensuite had a state of the art shower which was great fun. Breakfast
was perfect, healthy choices and served at the kitchen bar which is the hub of the house.
Here we met fellow guests who all felt as at home as we did. We didn't use the hottub but
other guests enjoyed it in the tranquility of the garden. Great Place, highly recommend it.
