Quiet, peaceful accommodation with thoughtful and caring hosts. When I am there, it feels like home -- comfy bed and a good book by the beside. Fresh baked scones with homemade jam to start the day and a pot of tea to end it.

We only stayed one night here before getting the ferry back to Vancouver, but it was a quirky delight. The hosts couldn't have done more to make us feel at home, even packing us a HUGE breakfast because we had to leave too early to eat there. A wonderful place to stay in Nanaimo.

The couple who run this B&B were fabulous. They were able to accommodate our early arrival. We had a gourmet breakfast each morning. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We will return if in the area again.

Just returned from another perfect weekend at the Pine and Picket. I go to Nanaimo 3x a year and after finding this place I never stay anywhere else. The place is impeccably clean, the beds are comfy and the breakfasts are always 5 star quality with large portions. Hosts Ania and Ingvar both have an eye for the little details... More

We stayed only one night in this great B&B, but it would be worth to stay longer there. I was surprised to find such a great B&B so close to the Ferry. We only met Ania and missed Ingvar. However, Ania is such a lovely and friendly host with some helpful hints what to do and where to go for... More

What a great B&B and so close to the Ferry Terminal. We could only stay for one night but would have loved to stayed longer but time could not permit. Ania and Ingvar are the very best of the great hosts that we met on our trip around BC and the breakfast was to die for.Next time we go to... More

I come over to Nanaimo to work for a week at a time, about once every 2 months. A colleague recommended the Pine and Picket. It was a fabulous recommendation. I have now spent over a dozen nights at the Pine and Picket, and Anya has yet to repeat a breakfast! The food is exquisite, a beautiful display of fruit... More

This is a wonderful, intimate B&B located close to the ferry terminal with several restaurants within walking distance. Our room was lovely with a small balcony facing the water. The hosts, Ania and Ingvar, have thought of everything to make their guests' stay as comfortable as possible. They are very interesting people who love to travel themselves which makes for... More

We booked Pine and Picket on Hotels.com The owner called us to tell us she just got back into town from the holiday weekend and didn't have a room. We were already on the ferry enroute to the B&B at this point. She asked us to call hotels.com to cancel our reservation. Of course since it was well after 4pm... More

Some important details are missing …. like you booked at 4:20pm on that very day – the day after our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, when we had celebrating that with family out of town, and that we called you the very minute we realized something was amiss re the hotels.com notice of your booking. We are a small B&B – just... More
