We enjoyed the entire experience this B&B has to offer including the genuine friendliness and hospitality Ania and Ingvar offer to all their guests. The food was exceptional and cleanliness of the house was pleasing. It's a great location in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance from the ferry dock. We will return again.

My husband and I stayed for one night a few weeks ago. Our accommodation was in the Provence room. This room was very comfortable with everything we needed including a lovely balcony overlooking the harbour and beautiful surroundings. Our hosts Ania and Ingvar were most accommodating. ( They even brought us a bouquet of hydrangeas when they found out how... More

Ingvar and Ania were amazing hosts, from the gourmet breakfast to the conversation at the table. Made us feel right at home. Madagascar room was beautiful and for our first B&B experience we wont forget and will definitly be back to stay again. I would reccommend Pine and Picket to anyone staying in the Nanaimo area. Thank you for the... More

Ingvar & Ania are fantastic hosts. Ania served us fantastic gourmet breakfasts The Provence room was perfect, with a balcony overlooking the garden, the pond, the harbour and the mountains. The room was spotless and comfortable. Between the 2 B&B rooms is a generous living room separating the two rooms. To us, it was the perfect B&B experience. We will... More

We stayed for one night on our stopover in Nanaimo. We were in the Madagascar room, quaint room with bathroom with shower. There is parking in the front. We chose to walk into downtown. It took a good 40 minutes with some nice trails along the water. Ania made us brioche for breakfast with sausages and a big serving of... More

The B&B is very conveniently located in close proximity of the Ferry Terminal, but that is hardly the main reason why we enjoyed our stay there so much. Ingvar and Ania are fantastic hosts and I really hope to be back many times more. Our room and the gardens around the house were lovely. Ania kindly accommodated my dietary restrictions... More

My wife and I spent 3 days enjoying the Pine & Pickett in July. Ania and Ingvar are fantastic hosts and fun to be around. We laughed a lot and shared many stories. The location is great and very close to downtown Nanaimo. The room was super comfortable with a nice balcony where we could sit and enjoy the view... More

What a lovely stay. This was a friendly and relaxed stop over for us on the way back to Vancouver. Beautiful room, very friendly hosts, wonderful breakfast and a brief bush with the otter (it lives in the garden!!). We loved it here and would highly recommend the convenience to the ferry terminal and lovely walk to the harbour. A... More

Love this place. Both rooms are very private with their own bath. The views are terrific. Best of all, however, is the un intrusive hospitality from the proprietors - and the fabulous breakfast. We enjoyed a walk into town and a good night's rest before feasting on a delicious meal of waffles and sausage in the morning. I'm not generally... More

The most comfortable stay on the island!! This should be in the manual for the only way to run a B&B. Your hosts greet you with the most wonderful atmosphere. The food is amazing with Anya being a red seal French trained chef, while Ingvar has many stories and an amazing voice to keep everyone on cloud 9. Within 5... More
