Numbers look fabulous to Castlegar hosts
Seventy-six out of 83, any way you want to count it, has to be excellent.
tripadvisor.com has rated the Windborne Bed and Breakfast among the top 25 B&Bs in the country.
The people who put Windborne in the top 25 are the guests. Of 83 who took the survey, 76 rated the Robson establishment as "excellent"… four felt it was "very good" and three had an "average" impression of the facility run by Marc Conacher and Mirja Vahalla at 3900 Broadwater Road.
"I went on my Internet last night and it said, 'you won the award.' I just figured it was for B.C." Conacher enthused on Jan. 17. "I thought… B.C…. that's pretty good. Then I went to Nelson this morning, came home and Mirja said 'it's not for B.C. it was for Canada. We're the 25th top B&B in Canada."
This is the first such award for the couple who are in their fifth year of business near the shores of the Columbia River. It's quite significant given the number of B&Bs across the nation – estimated at 6,000+.
"We're quite happy about it," Marc understated. The achievement will be something extra to celebrate in the next couple of weeks as Marc and Mirja head for some R&R in Brazil.
