Guest reviews

My two favourite interests — art and gardening. Imagine finding a B&B with absolute professionals in both fields!! I was in heaven! The home is lovely, the breakfasts delectable... and yet it was the hospitality of both Marc and Mirja that made our stay so wonderful. They went out of their way to make our time in Castlegar very memorable.

You made a trip that was for sad reasons very enjoyable. I had one of the best night’s sleep I ever had. Thank you.

Thank you Marc for a wonderful stay here. You have made us most welcome, nothing has been too much trouble. We have also enjoyed our conversations and particularly loved hearing how you and your wife created this amazing home. Best wishes.
