dot Natasha's Russian Guesthouse
Natasha is the sweetest lady and very welcoming. Greeted me warmly by the front when I first arrived and made home- cooked breakfast every morning. Made sure I felt at home and the place is uniquely furnished. Would definitely stay again when I'm in town.

I stayed with Natasha and my other sister in laws for 4 nights and 5 days. We were greeted by Natasha who is the sweetest woman you will ever meet. Her property is magical. Her veggy garden fresh as we walked and picked berries. She used her fresh veggies and served us the most amazing traditional breakfast you will ever have! Her house backing the Kettle river is just steps away from a secluded beach area. We walked and took photos everyday. We stayed in her summer house which is a stand alone cabin. The places was adorable, clean and organized. We pretty much felt like family and were so sad to leave. Her place is a little bit of heaven and I recommend her place! We will be back!

Thank you for making our stay in Grand Forks so pleasant. The cabin was cozy, breakfasts were scrumptious and the conversation was stimulating. I hope to return some day, as there is so much to see and do.

Thanks again for a great visit in Grand Forks at your lovely home! It was such a pleasure to stay and to meet you and Chris. We spent time at the Doukhobor Museum and the Art Museum in Grand Forks before we left. So glad we did, both were wonderful! Attached a photo of Masha, we enjoyed her too. Thanks again, Paula and Rick

We stayed with Natasha in Sept. 2014. It was a wonderful experience. This interesting Russian women with her food and hospitable personality made our stay special. It was a touch of Russia in beautiful Grand Forks, B.C.

Grand Forks and the entire Sunshine Valley affords one a slower pace, wonderfully scenery, a rich heritage and an easy, friendly atmosphere. Cyclists who have discovered this area, enjoy a wealth of scenery and many roads and trails to keep them occupied.

Natasha (our hostess) takes great pride in her heritage, and while staying as guests at her home, she served up some fine examples of ethnic cuisine. All the while, catching a glimpse of the Russian ways of doing things. I would heartily recommend a visit.

Thanks for everything,

We had a wonderful stay at Natasha's Guesthouse! Her guesthouse is quaint,comfortable and very very quiet. We laid in bed, looked at the stars and the mountain shadow in the distance. Watched deer in the field below at dusk, wondered through her beautiful garden on a sunny crisp summer morning. Natasha's charming little dog Moos'ka smilingly entertained us. We ate a delicious hearty breakfast while Natasha filled us in on the history of Grand Forks and a bit about her interesting life. Definitely a Five Star visit! We hope to return again soon.

My friend and I had the pleasure of spending two night's at Natasha's in June. We loved her home and garden with all the Russian touch's. We were looking for a bit of a food adventure in Grand Forks so opted to have Natasha introduce us to some of her traditional dishes at breakfast. I loved her version of Kasha which included grains, lentils and Lapsha egg noodles. I picked up some Lapsha at the farmers market on Friday to try it back home. A high-light of our time in GF was a walk with Natasha along the old rail bed - what a view! Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Natasha's is truly a Russian hideaway. Don't pass up the opportunity to have dinner at her table. Everything is fresh and most, directly out of her garden. Her meals are outstanding and we can say that if Natasha doesn't see the cow; she won't buy the milk!

Mooscha, the family dog, will walk you to the river after dinner and then a peaceful sit in her beautiful garden tops off the evening.

We'd recommend a stay here and will return next time we go through Grand Forks, B.C.



Our group cycled the KVR from Christina Lake to Penticton. When I emailed Natasha for information about staying at her B&B in Grand Forks on route, she said she would treat us like family. Natasha opened her home to us and true to her word she welcomed us like we were family. She cooked us an amazing supper which we enjoyed out in her beautiful flower garden. In the morning she fed us a healthy, yummy breakfast and waved goodbye as we cycled away. Thanks Natasha.

The pleasant atmosphere, the kind hostess, the great garden and extremely comfortable rooms all contribute to the great home away from home feeling. The food is all organic and very tasty, let alone filling leaving you feeling that lunch is unnecessary. If I had to rate this guesthouse out of 10, I'd give it 11.

Looks very interesting especially since my paternal ancestors are Ukrainian & I cook Ukrainian food. Am planning a trip to Grand Forks this summer to research my maternal great grandparents(Irish/German) who settled in GF 1900-11 & are interred in the Evergreen/ Boundary Cemetery.Am checking out places to stay that are close to areas I want to visit by foot & bike

A very unique Bed and Breakfast. The meat, fruits and vegetables were all local, organic and fresh - most came from the garden and the fruit trees beside the house! We went for the dinner option as well as the standard B&B (something you do not see at other B&Bs) and had a truly unique, tasty and filling home cooked Russian meal - not the typical borscht and perogies. The house, my room, queen bed and duvet were comfortable and cozy. Breakfast consisted of unique Russian fare and included a fresh fruit smoothie with grapes and pears from the yard. Our hostess, Natasha, was great. Overall, a great B&B - the place to stay if you want to sample a little bit of Russia!
