Our visit to this B&B began with a glass of wine with Bernie in the living room. She is so very knowledgeable about all the attractions in the area. After our help-hike the next day she gave us towels and directed us to the hot pools near town. Both restaurants she described well turned out to have wonderful food. In the morning while looking out at the mountain vista Gerard served us a yummy breakfast. We spent 2 nights here and had the large room in the back of the house. It's sitting room was complete with refrigerator, sink, and an electric pot for coffee, tea, etc. As we were leaving Bernie handed us a list of places we could stop and explore on our way to Queenstown. She had the mileage between stops down perfectly with an estimate of how long to stay at each destination. What really put this B&B over the top is that Bernie did our laundry for us while we were at dinner. Bless you, Bernie, for going the extra mile.
