There are so many amazing details that made our stay so wonderful. Upon arrival Anne greeted and welcomed us into her home. We loved the room, we stayed in a smaller room at the front of the house, with a door onto the porch and window looking out at the river. The bed was amazingly comfortable with luxury bedding and care taken to decorate the room nicely. The bathroom was perfect- heated floors, as well as non-fogging glass- the fine details that I did not expect in a small B&B. Our room also had a tin filled with home made cookies and items to make tea. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful- fresh baked muffins with different flavors each day, a hot egg dish, cereals, toast and fresh fruit. But the best part of breakfast was chatting with Anne and Ian and getting their great advice on what to explore in Wanaka. They had great recommendations on hikes in the area and restaurants, which helped us have an amazing stay. The location of the B&B is in a small town just outside of Wanaka- but we did not mind the short drive into town- it was wonderful to be next to the river and away from many people. I was so sad the last day when it was time to leave. I would highly recommend staying at Riversong- it truly made our vacation and I can't wait to be able to return to New Zealand and stay at Riversong again in the future.
