For many people Picton is a town they pass through when catching the ferry, but we stayed here for a few days and enjoyed touring the sites and walking in Queen Charlotte Sound. This B+B was convenient for the town and the room was very comfortable and quiet. The hosts were excellent - friendly, helpful and charming.

Carl picked us up at the Interisland Ferry Terminal late in the evening upon our arrival. He also offered to take us to the train station in Picton a couple of days later during our transfer via the Kiwi Railway to Christchurch. He is a very passionate, professional carpenter. The wood work throughout the house is of the finest quality... More

Wow, what a fantastic review. Jeanne and I loved having them stay with us. Often and in this case, it is much like having good friends stay and we do like to make guests feel right at home. It is neat to give advice on what is happening in our area to find it is just what was needed. It... More

Only stayed one night but was very comfortable and quiet. Easy walking distance of Picton. Our hosts were delightful. They gave us a welcome glass of wine with cheese and we were able to have a nice discussion re NZ with them. Breakfast great with 3 types of honey including some 'home grown'. Would recommend.

We only stayed here 1 night but could have stayed longer. Jeanne and Carl are truly amazing hosts that couldn't do enough for you. The rooms were so comfortable and well equipped. Wine and cheese were offered on the patio at night with the other guests before having dinner downtown Picton. Breakfast was delicious, served with different types on honey...very... More

We stayed here for 2 nights enabling us to visit the Picton area and in particular do a day walk on the Queen Charlotte track. We were greeted warmly like old friends, Jeanne and Carl were most welcoming hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Carl even dropped us off in town the first evening we were there to avoid...

My husband and I stayed at the McCormick House for two nights. Jeanne and Carl are absolutely delightful hosts, and their place is beautiful. Our room was spacious, bright and clean, with nice views and good internet. The house is an easy 5-minute drive to the downtown Picton area. Jeanne and Carl know the area well, so talk to them...

McCormick House is a lovely place to stay with Karl and Jeanne who take loving care of the beautiful grounds. Breakfasts include several choices and were wonderful. Karl is a great tour guide with advice on places to see AND how to get there as well as the best local vinyards. This is truly a special locale.

Stayed here for 1 night before catching the ferry to North Island. Jeanne and Carl are delightful hosts and made us very welcome with drinks and cheese board on the terrace with the other guests on arrival. Our room was extremely comfortable and spotless and had a 'home from home' feel. A bit of a walk from town if you... More

Ended up with only one night here rather than four, after late change in our itinerary. Carl and Jane were consummate hosts. We arrived earlier than expected, which did not faze them, leaving our bags to explore Picton before returning later after "check in" time. Big double bed was REALLY comfortable, as were the pillows and linen. Made for super... More
