We were delighted with our choice of this lovely B&B. The hosts were warm and welcoming, and their home was beautiful. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was big and modern. Our hosts gave us an excellent dinner recommendation, so be sure to ask!

We loved our room with the bathtub. Jeanne and Carl were gracious hosts with a wealth of information about Picton (what a beautiful place) and the surrounding area. Wish we would have had more time to spend in the area and with them

Picton is the South Island terminus of the Wellington Interislander ferry. Most passengers immediately move on without sampling the delights of this small but very scenic town. We spent a couple of wonderful days at McCormick House a fine, old (by NZ standards at least) house owned by very friendly hosts, Jeanne and Carl. With good reason, both are keen... More

As a returning guest that alone makes its own statement. One matter that is particularly difficult to judge with a property is the precise nature of the environment in which it is located. For me McCormick is perfect, minutes from Picton centre but far enough away to be tranquil and quiet in the day time. The property is in a... More

We drove to Picton from Blenheim airport and didn't have much trouble finding the house (it might have helped if we looked at the directions before trying to get there). A quiet side street off the main road out of town (you pass through the center on the way from Blenheim) and an attractive house that seems ordinary (well, beyond... More

We had a great couple of nights in Picton at Jeanne & Carl's place. Carl was an excellent host and we are most grateful for all the interesting conversations and education he provided from great walks hikes information and details based on his own experience to the different varieties of honey New Zealand offers. I would say the house is... More

When I stay in these boutique bed and breakfast locations, which are almost unique to New Zealand, I judge them on three criteria. The layout out of the property and the rooms sense of specialness. The passion of our hosts for offering hospitality. The quality of the breakfasts. In all three regards McCormick House delivers I felt at home, welcomed... More

Jeanne and I are glad everything went so well with our first boutique wedding at McCormick House.We were very aware that things may not go to plan, but it was so easy to discuss with Amber, what needed to happen on the day. So many details need to be worked through for everyone's expectations to be met. Everyone involved helped... More
