Had the pleasure to stay at the Pine and Picket over the November long weekend. Ania and Ingvar made us VERY welcome into their home. The two bedrooms are located on the upper floor and are separated by a sitting area which provided a comfortable and private area to read and kick back. The rooms were luxuriously furnished with nice... More

We stayed 3 nights at The Pine and Picket B&B; a time that we will not forget. Ania and Ingvar make us feel right at home with their warm and genuine hospitality. Their lovely character home was quiet, comfortable, very clean and lovingly decorated. Breakfast was amazing and fun, and Ania exceeded our expectations in accommodating our daughter's dietary requirements.... More

Ania and Ingvar were excellent hosts. Stayed there twice for one night apiece. Lovely rooms and superb breakfasts. Close enough to walk into Nanaimo and very near the ferry to Vancouver. Can recommend for a couple.

We had the pleasure of spending 4 nights with Ania and Ingvar at the Pine & Picket in early August. They are great hosts that really make you feel welcome - you arrive as strangers and leave as friends. We experienced, both the Madegaskar and Provence rooms and each had its unique charm with great amenities. The breakfasts were divine... More

We stayed in the Provence room which was quaint with a balcony looking over the neighborhood and towards the sea planes - we even saw a huge stag deer in a neighbors garden. The breakfast Ania cooked was the best! Invgar was great company for breakfast. We did a nice walk into Nanaimo along the waters edge watching seals. The... More

That is, if your relatives impromptu serenade you at the breakfast table! Ingvar and Ania have a talent for making you feel welcome and right at home. Believe all the good reviews here!! The food was beyond amazing; I feel like I didn't compliment the chef enough. Simply divine and absolutely authentic French. When eating the brioche I was nearly... More

My daughter and myself stayed one night at the Pine and Picket in the Madagascar room. Ania was out of town, but we truly enjoyed our visit with Ingvar. He was very entertaining with his stories and wonderful homemade wine. I laughed so hard that I cried over some of his stories. We had to get a very early ferry,... More

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

Thank you for the... More
