I found “ Mulvehill Creek Wilderness Inn “ on the Internet. After reading reviews and viewing pictures on their site, I booked the “ Eagles Nest “ . Rene was indeed gracious to allow us to rebook as weather changed our plans.
We called at 18:00 to announce a tardy appearance allowing us to dine in Revelstoke, arriving about 20:00 in the dark. Greeted by Rene, he showed us to our room, however upon arrival and viewing our accommodations, we were concerned the web pictures did not accurately portray the room nor the facility we had selected. A bit uneasy that night, the bedding smelled fresh, however we discovered some unexpected natures additives in our sheets and signs of extended usage of bedding, where items should have been replaced. The water on site is not recommended to drink, bottle water is provided. The sign announcing the advice may be better located in front of the sink rather than to the side as we missed it initially and Rene did not mention that at checkin.
The new day, allowing sunlight to better illuminate the facility, confirmed it was a wilderness retreat with natural beauty, accompanied with unexpected experiences.
Morning breakfast suggested a European theme, ample and enjoyable. We enjoyed conversation with the other guests at the property from Holland.
The facility has its beauty in surroundings, and in its day, possibly a gem. It now appears to suffer from maintenance and update issues that have taken a toll over the past years, understanding that returning the facility to its luster would be time consuming and costly.
Rene, a Swiss native is passionate about area, nature, and the facility he and his wife own. We truly applaud his knowledge, dedication and love of the facility.
We had reserved and paid for two nights upon arrival, but decided the B & B would not permit an extended stay based upon our observations. I politely asked what the policy was for refund, where Rene commented reimbursement was not possible. He would honour a future booking for ourselves or friends if we returned at a later date. As the Inn is “ FOR SALE “, not something we were aware of at time of booking, I am not sure how that might be accommodated should we ever decide to return.
Building and maintaining our own home, I understand rural properties and their challenges. We are familar with the ongoing upkeep as we also live in a rustic setting with nature at our doorstep and have so for many years. As we age, those chores become more difficult and daunting.
Our thanks for suggesting a dinner location in Revelstoke, it was an interesting choice.
We wish you all the best in selling your property and moving towards new adventures in life.
