We stayed 2 nights while visiting the fiord land area. Lynn gave us great advice on what to see and where to eat. Breakfast was perfect especially the homemade bread. Greeted each morning by the family dog, cat and deer. Couldn't have asked for more.

The cabin was very comfortable, but we struck a cold front and weren't really prepared for the very cold weather but it didn't stop us from thoroughly enjoying our stay. The cabin was warm. Lyn and Lex were great hosts and put us in touch with a tour company that organized our trip to the Milford Sounds - the highlight... More

Occasionally you find a place that is not just good - it is fabulous, memorable and unforgettable. We were so pleased to find this B and B - the kind and welcoming owners placed us in a small cabin separate to their house - it had a simple bedroom, living room with kitchenette and separate shower room. All clean, neat... More

We loved our cosy, comfortable cabin with its fabulous outlook over fields, lake and mountains. Being surrounded on 3 sides by inquisitive deer and cattle was indeed a unique (and wonderful) experience though the tap tap of the antlers against the wall took some getting used to at first, we stopped noticing after a while. Lyn provided us with great... More

An absolutely beautiful farm stay with a gracious hostess who is a wealth of good information about the area. Highly recommended. We stayed in the cabin which was very comfy and with lovely views. Friendly dog and lovely white deer added to the attraction. Great place...would return again.

The owners Lex and Lynn were really great and made us feel completely at home talking about their family, ours, where to go in the area, where best to eat, etc. We stayed in the cabin and as others have commented by today's standards it is a bit basic. But it was adequate and as was mentioned when we were... More

My husband and I stayed in the Cabin for 3 nights. The cabin is only basic but provides a lovely quiet spot to get away. The cabin consists of a kitchen/lounge room, a separate bedroom, and bathroom. It got quite cold and the kitchen is only simple, but it is neat and clean with blankets and heaters to rug up... More

At first we were sad that Rose’n’Reel’s cottage was booked on the days we wanted to go there. But Lyn offered us the queen bed garden room with own bathroom across the floor. We liked the quiet room.
