We are retired teachers, passionate about sharing our local area and history with others , while providing a safe, peaceful and comfortable environment for our guests.
Having operated Evergreen Gate for nineteen years , we have found our lives enriched by visitors from all over the world! At the same time, our guests have taught us about our own community, as we learn of their reasons for coming to the Selkirk/St/Andrews area.
We are grandparents and understand the challenges of travelling with children ! We have toys and books on hand and offer a casual approach to breakfast dining which allows for children to be comfortable at our table.
We speak French, and dabble in French and German as necessary. ( Translation apps have proved useful if we need anything else! ) But above all, visitors can count on us for smiles and a warm welcome , as we strive to make you feel at home at evergreen Gate.
