“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

From the minute we arrived, our hosts Lea & Dave made us feel very welcome. Our room was well appointed and very comfortable. Drinks at 6.30pm were great with much laughter by all. In fact, we had to drag ourselves away to go out for dinner! Breakfast is a feast and I must say watching Dave slave over the hot stove was deserved - pay-back for his wonderful acerbic humour! Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts - down to making last minute scenic flight bookings with the helicopter tour operators who fly from right outside the back door! For a warm and friendly atmosphere in comfortable accommodation look no further.

The Misty Peaks is located 2 mins from fox glacier center and 50 meters from a Helicopter base. So all the activities you desire can be easily started from here.
The lodge offers five rooms, ous was good in size and had a nice bathroom. Very useful is that you can bring in your luggage through the terrace windows and you can go there with the car to unload.
Breakfast is nice with fruits and cereals and some warm options that are freshly prepared. The coffee was the best one we found in NZ.
So, great place to stay, absolutely recommended.

Lea and David go out of their way and work so hard to provide a wonderful stay for their visitors.
Highly highly recommended!

We were so happy we found Misty Peaks B&B on line. After tramping through Fox Glacier and also Lake Matheson, we were warmly welcomed by Lea and shown to our lovely room. Bathroom was immaculate and amenities in the room were very thoughtful. Lea invited us to join her and other guests at the B&B for wine and cheese at 6:30PM, which was so nice. Great conversations with very friendly folks. Breakfast was cooked by Dave, and what wonderful smells came out of the kitchen. Eggs, bacon, sausage, and toast along with several cold choices. No need for lunch that day! Thanks, Lea and Dave, for a superb stay. We wish you continued success and good health.

We took two rooms for two days at Misty Peaks and it was terrific. The owner (Lea) made us feel right at home, It was as though we were staying with good friends. The rooms et al are in immaculate condition, very quiet, comfortable and convenient. From our room we could see an amazing sunset that turned the snowy peak of Mt. Cook a beautiful pink.Highly recommended!

Misty Peaks was recommended to us by a friend and we were very pleasantly surprised. A very friendly welcome and a glass of wine before dinner was much appreciated. Lea was warm and very helpful regarding calls to make sure that we could get our helicopter flight up the glacier. I would recommend this B & B to anyone looking for a warm welcome.

This was our first stop on our trip around the South Island and I am so glad we stayed here! Lea & Dave were fabulous hosts. Our room was spacious and immaculately clean. Lea could offer lots of information about the area and things to do and see while on our trip. Thank you for a great night, we will be recommending you to everyone we know!
