“Our first B&B experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Windborne was our first experience lodging at a B & B! The value for dollar compared to a hotel room was remarkable! The Moonlight Suite was enchanting and very comfortable. The attention to detail in designing and decorating the rooms was impressive. Our hosts were gracious and genial. The breakfast was delicious, a great taste treat!

Thank you for taking your time to give us this excellent review. We are glad you liked the attention to detail in the designing and decorating of the house. It was the best job in the world being on the building crew during the construction of our B&B. Mirja and RCI Construction did an amazing job of designing the house. We look forward to any return visits to our area.

We had an excellent time. This was our first experience in Canada and Castlegar and this B&B was hands down the best place we've ever stayed at. The house and decor was beautiful and the hosts are very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are well sized and very comfortable. Breakfast was open to guests ideas and was made from scratch, not to mention very tasty!

We wish we could have stayed longer.

Our experience at Windborne couldn't have been better. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Mark accommodated our schedule and delighted us with delicious gourmet meals. The B&B provided a luxurious end of day treat after a day of skiing in the beautiful Selkirk mountains. We look forward to another visit.

Stayed at the Windborne during a holiday ski vacation. Skied at Whitewater & Red Mountain. The B&B was superb in every way - breakfasts were delightful and the accommodations were comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. Marc and his wife were awesome hosts and made our trip one worth remembering. We will definitely be back and will recommend to our friends! Just can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay and that everything was outstanding - a new friendship will be shared as well!

Room Tip: All rooms are delightful and appointed well.

Had another great stay at Marks BandB. Mark cooked up one of my favourite breakfasts. The rooms are beautiful and very spacious. Had a sound sleep. Mark is a great host and always has a story to tell.

Don't think there is a better place for an overnight stay. Mark epitomizes excellence in the hospitality industry. From his attention to detail to his scrumptious pancakes. I felt like I died and went to B&B heaven. My new benchmark by which all B & B experiences will be measured, and I doubt will ever be exceeded.

This past Monday was my second time staying at this great B&B, it has turned out to be a awesome place for me to stay while I am on the road. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. The company of Marc and his stories are a great touch and the breakfast is outstanding!

Thank you for taking your time to give us this excellent review. We are pleased you feel comfortable in our B&B. We are glad you liked that we sailed and lived through a hurricane in the middle of the ocean. We were very thankful about that also, especially the living part, the hurricane part, not so much. Looking forward to seeing you in the new year.
