Absolutely agree with all the other comments about Kincaid Lodge! It couldn't have been better! The room we stayed in was huge with a view to the front yard and ocean. The room my brother and his wife stayed in looked out to the majestic mountains that are a backdrop for the lodge. The "living room" had a free standing fireplace, a library, DVD movies, and a wonderfully big wooden table where we ate delicious breakfasts. Can eggs get any fresher? Homemade croissants were a hit!
However, the highlight of this stay was the hosts!! Greg and Jessica are delightful, engaging, and we felt immediately connected to them and hated to leave. We talked, we laughed and thoroughly enjoyed them. They have every detail under control and they seem to really enjoy the adventure of running a B&B.
Kaikoura and the Kincaid Lodge were beyond any expectation!
