Stayed at the Columns for 4 nights last week. It is my preferred place to stay when I am on business in Winnipeg, as it has all the amenities I look for in a hotel, with the added comforts and familiarity of a home. The facility itself is beautifully restored and presented. I find it to have the feel of...

The house is beautiful, with dark wood trim and floors throughout and very well-kept and clean. Our room was spacious and had a comfy, large bed (with plenty of covers/blankets and...

We booked this B&B at the last minute for our one-night stay in Winnipeg at the end of our trek across the Canadian prairie.

This graceful and comfortable B&B in a charming area of Winnipeg takes the term Bed and Breakfast very seriously with emphasis on breakfast. The house itself is a beautifully restored 19th mansion with extensive areas for guest to sit and relax including a spacious rear deck area.
