Having just returned from a 10 day stay in the wonderful Pine and Picket I couldn't help but wonder if this second visit would match up to all that was outstanding last year. It did - and more. After an 18 hour flight I could not have asked for a warmer welcome back into Ania and Ingvar's charming home. I... More

My husband and I stayed in Nanaimo just one night before heading to Tofino. We met Ingvar briefly when we arrived and had a pleasant conversation before he left for an appointment. Ania took care of us the rest of our stay and she is so friendly that we regretted not having more time to spend with her. She recommended... More

Great location near the ferry to Vancouver. Easy to find. Good eating a couple of blocks away, and more down town a short drive. Lots of places to walk/drive near by -- vineyards, The Raptors, Pacific Rim Park. Hosts were friendly and informative. GOOD breakfast!

I just stayed at The Pine and Picket for about a week. I can honestly say that I don't believe it could get better than this! Ania, the host, is so warm and welcoming, and she prepares the most exquisite breakfasts. You will NEVER eat a more delicious breakfasts anywhere! If Ania had a restaurant, I would eat there as...

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The breakfasts were perfect. I stayed in the Madagascar suite. It was very comfortable. House and Host, very warm and welcoming. Look forward to returning if work brings me back, or possibly on a couples vacation.

Very close to Departure Bay where all the ferries arrive and leave and also walking distance to downtown. Such a cute house and its furnished with love! Unfortunately we didnt meet Ania but Ingvar was an excellent host and made us feeling at home. Outstanding self-made breakfast with nice conversations. Thank you!

As someone who travels frequently for business and pleasure I have stayed in many top hotels and nothing can touch the Pine and Picket for overall best place to stay. Ania and Ingvar have a gift for hospitality, the rooms are impeccably clean, the breakfasts beat 5 star dining and the beds are comfortable. This is a cozy, make you... More

Ania and Ingvar have a lovely home and offer outstanding hospitality. They are a very friendly couple with excellent knowledge of what Nanaimo has to offer. We had the pleasure of a two night stay and Ania prepared and served two of the most spectacular breakfasts we have ever had!!! Homemade gluten free waffles! Are you kidding me? We cannot... More

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
