#1 of 7 B&Bs / Inns in Fox Glacier
Welcome to my peaceful Fox Glacier hideaway, set on 8 acres of "Pure Nature" at its best. This modern country home has it all. With wide-open landscape, breathtaking views of Mt Cook and Mt Tasman, and surrounded by bush-clad hills with a magnificent reflection on my own special pond.

One of these places were you get so much more than "just" what u paid for. Besides the clean shiny room and the big pumpering breakfast, our host was simply wonderful. She knew everything about the area and beyond. Which hikes and walks to take and when, and had all the patience in the world for our endless questions! Thank you Karen for your warm and kind hospitality! Hope we meet again🙏

This is a B&B in a beautiful location. Karen is a friendly host and offers a mine of information for things to do, places to go and New Zealand life in general. We had a great stay despite the cloud cover! Recommended

One of the main reasons we frequently stay at B&Bs on our travels is that the B&B experience gets us closer to life in the communities we visit. If the host is really good, it often saves us much time and trouble because we get help fine-tuning our plans for an area to maximize our time. When we reached FGMB&B, Karen could tell we were a bit disheartened. The rain had been unceasing for over a week, and we had had to cancel things like Milford Sound because of an avalanche on the road. Other roads were washing out, and with all the moisture in the air, we were afraid we would not be able to see the glaciers. Karen was terrific. She took us in hand and explained that while the road to Fox Glacier was washed out, we could still get in to see the Franz Josef Glacier, but we had to plan out a strategy. She was such a great help. We had a phenomenal experience hiking a river bed up to the Glacier and the mists cleared enough for us to have a good look. We also took advantage of a secret spot she mentioned to see the Fox Glacier from a distance. The place is outside of town, but just a short drive to town and Fox Glacier...Franz Josef is a little further. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. Thank you, Karen. We are most grateful!

My husband and I stayed only one night at this B&B, but I think when the memory of the other places we stayed fade, we will remember this one because of the exceptional owner, Karen. The B&B itself has all the things I look for in a stay - clean comfortable, and well located, with a beautiful view outside our door as an added bonus. Our own entrance and key made the room feel private. But for us, the best part was Karen, the very well traveled and adventuress owner, who will take as much time as you require to help you plan your time in Fox Glacier and throughout New Zealand. For me, travel is as much about the people you meet as the sights you see, and we very much enjoyed meeting Karen and feeling welcomed in her home.

Karen greeted us as we drove up the metal driveway and told us where parking was for the Lemon Cottage, which was right outside the verandah. Very good seeing it was raining. The cottage was inviting, but when it came to kitchen equipment it was very sparse. We had a bench with sink, 1 knife & 2 Teaspoons, small fridge and a notice telling you all the rules. No cooking was allowed so no microwave was available. As I like to heat my mik for breakfast for my coffee, I asked Karen if she could do this for me at breakfast next morning. The answer was NO, as she would be too busy cooking !! Then I noticed we only had 2 mugs & 2 water glasses. Again I asked for 2 wine glasses and was told we already had glasses wihout stems and that was that. So don't ask for any favors as you're not going to get them. Good wifi,very clean, nice breakfast, great pressure for shower & comfortable bed. The rail in the wardrobe was far to high
