If there is one thing we all have in common it’s the appreciation of comfort. If there’s one more, it’s the love of great food. If there are two things people seek when planning an unforgettable get-away… those would be the ones.

The Windborne Bed and Breakfast in Robson (Castlegar) offers these  – plus close access to great fishing, water sports and a private beach on the famous Columbia River.

Making another difference at this Five Star (as ranked by Trip Advisor.ca) oasis is your gracious host Marc Conacher whose culinary flair is a recurring highlight.




Then there’s the close proximity of a strikingly accomplished artist, Mirja Vahala. A stay at Windborne can include artistic instruction for those so inclined, or fascinating art to see and enjoy for the rest.




This B&B lacks for nothing in terms of creature comforts.The multi-jet showers and tubs, on their own, are like having a professional massage and they’re ready at the whim of the guest.

Originally from Montrose, Marc Conacher has carefully evolved into the role of professional host. Among his many well-developed skills are those of a gardener and water skier. Like any great host he’s acutely sensitive to the desires of his guests – whose comfort and privacy are, after all, the cornerstone of this hospitality haven.

Windborne is starting its fifth year of operation and has been enjoying its busiest spring to date.”We’re very fortunate,” said Marc of the spreading awareness of Windborne. “Bookings have been double the average.” He mentioned that January had five times the expected number of guests. One special visitor, from Vancouver, had just checked out that morning (April 27) after a stay of 61 days.

Windborne is consistently popular with those heading for the great fishing of Lower Arrow Lake, but whatever the interests of the traveler, whether they’re from near or far, Windborne fills the bill.As stated in their brochure, the goal of Marc and Mirja is “To delight you with a fabulous experience and to provide you with luxury, fantastic food and great memories.”
