We can find you a boat to row to one of the fine golden shingle beaches. We can supply a picnic hamper and beach towels and it is a very pleasant row in the sparkling waters of the Bays. You can also quietly row past the many luxury and character holiday homes set in the bush clad Bays all within an hour or so of rowing.
Or if you prefer, just get out on the water and row past the many different types of boats in the Bay.
Our area of the Queen Charlotte Sound is particularly beautiful as the native bush comes right to the waters edge and has many lovely bush clad Bays to explore. The bird life is prolific. There are activities menu's in each room.
We are also handy to the Queen Charlotte walking track, a 67km bush walk which you can actually see across the Bay. If staying, you are welcome to store your suitcases with us while on your 3 - 4 day walk. I know this track well having run its entirety on a number of occasions. A day or ½ day walk is very achievable from our cottage.
Many guests use Waterfront Bed and Breakfast as a base to complete day visits to wineries, walks, scenic drives and even trips to Nelson. We are on that circular route!
We offer casual evening meals with 24 hour notice. It is usually fish with marinated green lipped mussels in their ½ shell or BBQ meats accompanied with new potatoes and salad/vegetables followed by a cheese platter. We charge $50 pp and have available sauvignon, chardonnay or beer if required. In summer we dine outside on the deck which overlooks the water.
We have an activities menu for you to look at and we are knowledgeable in local attractions and of the native bush life around us. The garden is native and has many outside decking areas. In the evening we sometimes light the outside torches or toast marshmallow on the outdoor open fire or stroll up the jetty to see if the water is fluorescing and as there are no “city lights” the stars are incredible – I’ll point out the Southern Cross!
