There was only one problem with our stay, all future B&B stays will never be able to meet the standards set by our fantastic hosts, Ania and Ingvar. Quite frankly, we wished we could have extended our stay. You can't go wrong with the clean and comfortable rooms, beautiful property and the perfect location. If you're looking for a 5... More

Nice, clean and comfortable room, walking distance from the ferry terminal. Delicious breakfast and pleasant host. I spent three nights at the Pine and Picket but could easily have stayed longer if I had not already seen what was to be seen in Nanaimo.

You could not find a nicer place to stay in Nanaimo. Each suite has its own shady deck with garden or sea view. The rooms are comfy and gemütlich, the bathrooms modern. The garden is a delight, quinces and figs and peaches. Ania's breakfasts must be the best on Van Isle: eg fresh croissants stuffed with wild spring salmon, fresh... More

We stayed 8 nights at The Pine and Picket B&B in the Madagaskar room that was really nice and with comfortable beds and own bathroom. Ania and Ingvar made us feel right at home with their warm and genuine hospitality. Our interesting conversations over a gourmet breakfast every morning, prepared by Ania who is a trained chef, will not be... More

Our 4 night stay at The Pine and Picket B&B in Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, was the culinary jewel of our trip to the Northwest. Our room, named the Provence room, had its own well appointed bath with large shower. The queen size bed was very comfortable and the view of the beautiful harbor was aided by our own private balcony... More

Having stayed there with my girlfriend last year, and having an absolutely exceptional experience, I knew that I would be back again, and sure enough, we rebooked during the August long weekend and were not disappointed! We learned from last time, though... when Ania asked if we would like one or two eggs benedicts for breakfast, we made sure to... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay. Ania and Ingvar are the most gracious of hosts. Ania is a trained chef and will make you a 5 star breakfast that includes herbs and fruit from her garden. Ingvar is quite an entertainer and will welcome you with a story and (perhaps) a song. We stayed with friends in the 2... More

Our second wonderful stay at the Pine and Picket. Incredible food, beautiful rooms and splendid hosts. We were a group of four this time and had plenty of opportunity to use the very pleasant sitting area between the two rooms as well as the balcony. Ania and Ingvar feel like family.

This was a fabulous stay if only for one night. We stayed in the Provence room which was very clean and spacious with its own balcony. Annia looked after us very well and unfortunately we didn't get to meet up with her husband this time. Honestly folks breakfast was an experience to remember my wife & I had eggs beny... More

We have no hesitation in recommending the Pine and Picket where we stayed for 1 night en route to Port Hardy. So convenient for the Greyhound bus and BC ferry. Ania and Ingvar could not have been more friendly and welcoming. The room was lovely and they thoughtfully provided us with a fan as the night was very hot. Breakfast... More
