Winfield West B & B
“We think all good hospitality requires preparation. Since all guests have different desires and expectations, it is important to get as much advance information as possible prior to arrival. Attention to detail is extremely important as a bed and breakfast owner,” says Regina Nord-Tone who co-owns Winfield West B&B with her husband Fred.
In this Q & A, Regina gives an inside look into the cozy Jasper bed and breakfast:
Q: Where do you draw style inspiration for the décor in Winfield West?
A: Both of us have traveled extensively in our previous careers. We have traveled to Europe many times and saw different types of lodging furnishings and décor. We chose furnishings and colors that were warm, relaxed, and pleasing to the eye. We wanted our home to be functional and free of clutter with a feel of home.
Q: Do you host any special events at your property?
A: We do host special events for our guests who are staying with us, such as bridal or birthday luncheon and appetizer/social hour events. In addition, we will host luncheons for small groups of 8-14, such as business groups and holiday parties on weekdays only.
Q: What do you enjoy most about opening your home to travelers?
A: We enjoy good conversation and being a part of their special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries. You can learn so much about other people and cultures through conversation.
Q: What types of travelers typically stay with you?
A: The majority of our guests are leisure travelers who are in town for family gatherings, weddings, and class reunions. We also have couples visiting the town for the Spirit of Jasper Train, wineries, golf, and the monasteries. We have many guests celebrating birthdays and anniversaries as well.
Q: Any future goals or plans?
A: Our plans are to add a fourth guest room, which would be on the main floor. Also, we are planning to landscape our garden area and patio to host small outdoor events.
