B & B is in the Lake Kathlyn Area, beside Huds.Bay Mount. We are in a wildlife area right beside the Silvern Lake Trail with views to the Kathlyn Glacier, Twin Falls. The Trail is ideal for hiking a. biking in the summer and snowmobiling/X-Country in the winter.
After that you can relax in our Outdoor Hot-Tub with glacierview. All Rooms are with wildlifemotive decor and wildlife-flanellbedding, some with glacierview, separate entrance, Cozy Guest Lounge with Fireplace.
Stunning views, cute little area but only a 15 min drive to town, close to twin falls,comfy beds. 2020 is a different kind of year to be a b&b but these folks have still managed to provide a great stay. Breakfast was a little different than what they would usually provide but that was expected. It was still a tasty thoughtful package.
Every other B&B proprietor I've ever encountered goes out of their way to ensure that guests are accommodated and comfortable. On June 26th, I made reservations at the Silvern Lake Trail B&B, whose web site lists a very narrow, 4-8 pm check-in window. Our US cell phones didn't work at all on the road to Smithers B.C. that day, and when we finally found a place with coverage, we called the B&B proprietor, Michaela Bork, to ask about our late arrival. Michaela refused to be bothered with a late check-in, and insisted we were no-shows who would not be allowed to use her B&B that night. I didn't protest much because she promised a full refund: all we would have to do was contact booking.com and have them contact her. I immediately did so, made other reservations at a different hotel, and proceeded there. As of July 8th, Silvern Lake's charge still appeared. I called Michaela to ask her why, and she said "booking.com never contacted me." I asked her to look again and after some searching, she found the booking.com e-mail. I was relieved. "Good, so I did what you asked, booking.com did what you asked, and you'll provide our refund now, like you said you would?" No, for Michaela Bork had now changed her mind. Was it because she knew that all we had was a telephonic agreement, so she could get away with it? When I implored her to keep the promise she made on the phone that night, she interrupted and lectured me about check-in times. I reminded her that her spoken word should override any previous, written policy, but she just shouted all the louder, inviting me to "go ahead" and try to dispute the charge. This is not the kind of treatment weary customers deserve while traveling or trying to get their promised money back. Other travelers have a right to know.…
I stayed at this place in June and this month....a week each time. Working in New Hazelton but read good reviews and decides to stay here. The host was super nice and accommodating. The house is warm and welcoming. The breakfast never worked for me because I had to leave early, however she always packed me stuff to go. I tried her dinner one time and it was quite the treat, soo good!!!!!! Too bad she's a busy lady or I would had dinner there everyday. I was really happy with the whole experience and would definitely stay here again next time I return.
We definitely chose a perfect location for us to get out of the city and away from the hustle & bustle! Quiet, secluded, awesome views, and great hosts. Makala & Helmut were superb hosts offering wonderful advice about many great opportunities for climbing, hiking, birding, historical sightseeing, and photography! Of course the breakfasts were extremely tasty - lots of food for sure! The B & B grounds offered some of the very best view of stars and the milky way!
Chose this for its location - wanted somewhere out of town and with great views. I wasn't disappointed. Glacier view room was comfortable but rather small and the bathroom was on the floor above, which wasn't ideal but it was well stocked. Hosts were friendly, wifi was ok given the location, and breakfast was tasty (one of the better breakfasts I've had this trip). Hosts are native German speakers - worth bearing in mind if you speak German and fancy a break from speaking English 24/7.
