Winter or summer, BC’s southeastern Kootenay region is a destination that will keep visitors busy with outdoor activities such as hiking, boating and skiing. Staying at Castlegar’s Windborne B&B, you’ll also have the chance to find artistic inspiration in the mountain scenery by learning from co-owner and artist Mirja Vahala, whose studio and gallery, Inspiring Minds, is part of the B&B property. Call in advance to take classes in acrylic, oil, drawing or watercolour painting; or if you’re really motivated, consider a full artistic retreat with Vahala or other visiting artists.
