This was our first B&B experience anywhere. The hosts (Ann Marie and Saab) were so welcoming and even had a reservation at a great local restaurant called Blue Lakes that we enjoyed. Saab is very talented in cooking breakfast. In the room we enjoyed complimentary snacks and drinks and had a beautiful view overlooking Lake Tekapo. In the evening the stars were so bright and it felt like we were so close to the Milky Way. Our phone adapter was not working properly and Ann Marie loaned us her charger while we were there. This was so kind of her. We wished we stayed longer than one night. We strongly recommend for people to stay here if you are in the area. Also, we met one dog (Molly) who was so sweet and did not bother anyone. Also the nice touch of our name outside the room was a pleasant surprise. Thanks again for a great stay!
