The History of Boutique Bed and Breakfast

Boutique Bed and Breakfast is a tasteful fusion of old and new: an historic cottage exterior but a completely new interior, brand new bathrooms and beds but furnished with antiques. 

The cottage was an hotel in the 1870's when Waikouaiti and Palmerston were prominent Otago towns, with the surrounding farmland supplying potatoes, oats and wheat to both local and overseas markets.  In 1906 the building was shifted to its present position and now 100 years on, is providing hospitality to guests from all parts of the globe.
The History of Boutique Bed and Breakfast

Local History

The East Otago area is rich in local history.  Johnnie Jones, a well known merchant whaler, sealer and farmer, settled at Matanaka in the 1840 where his farm buildings still exist.  These were the first farm buildings built in New Zealand.

Known as the birthplace of Otago, Waikouaiti and Palmerston feature historic shop buildings, halls and churches, and the Waikouaiti Museum. Palmerston is the gateway to Central Otago via the Pig Route.

Today Waikouaiti and Palmerston are both enjoying resurgence as shops, cafes, restaurants, bakeries, beauty salons, takeaway outlets and taverns once again fill the streets.
