Too many visitors ignore the lovely little town of Picton & it's surrounds and head straight off south on Highway 1. It's well worth a visit and if you do there's nowhere better to stay than with Alison & Geoff at their super B & B which is close to the town centre yet tucked away in a quiet area.... More

What a wonderful surprise when we were shown our room and the view from our window and balcony was breathtaking- our own piece of the bush. Alison and Geoff had been helpful since our first e mail contact and meeting them was no surprise. They were welcoming, friendly, full of useful info. Over a cup of tea on arrival we... More

Thank you.... was wonderful meeting you. Our email 'chats' helped form a picture so when you arrived it was as if welcoming friends. Just great. And we're happy you enjoyed your stay, enjoyed your room (guests once commented they felt they were in a tree hut!) Hopefully we'll meet again? ... Best wishes, Alison & Geoff More

We chose this place as base for a one day walk on the Queen Charlotte Track. Alison and Geoff made it a most pleasurable one. They own a well maintained home in a secluded spot of Picton, still in walking distance to the centre of town. But as we were chatting with these friendly hosts while enjoying a flawless breakfast,... More
