The main guest room is tucked down a hallway apart from our own bedrooms. It overlooks the ocean and harbor with mountains in the background. The bed is handmade from an antique opium bed, but with the modern comfort of a Chattam & Wells pillow top mattress. (We understand the importance of a good night's sleep!) Just through the sliding glass doors of your bedroom is a large deck with hot tub overlooking the ocean. We have a private acre lot so no need to worry about bathing suits it is totally optional! Here you can relax and watch the moon glistening on the waves, the fishing boats arriving and departing, or the fog creeping down the mountains. Observant guests may see osprey, otters, seals, whales, or even the occasional mermaid.
You are welcome to use our large front room, joining us in lively conversation or reading a book and sipping on a glass of Oregon wine. For the music lover we have a baby grand piano for you to play while we form an appreciative audience.
Brookings-Harbor is on the Wild Rivers Coast of Oregon, 20 miles north of Crescent City, California and midway between Portland and San Francisco. Brookings has several excellent restaurants and art galleries. Live music is frequently featured in various venues. We enjoy a variety of natural beauty in this area, from one of the oldest Redwood groves to whitewater rivers to sand dunes to our beautiful rocky coast. We can point you to innumerable hiking trails along the coast or in nearby redwood forests.
A second adjacent bedroom is available for guests traveling with family or friends. This room shares the same bathroom as the main guest room, so is ONLY rented to people in the same party. (See separate listing below if you would like to additionally rent the extra room.) This room looks out on our large front yard.
The living room with fireplace and full ocean view. There is also an upstairs rec room with a 60 inch TV and Schwinn Exercise bike or yoga mats. Also a 2 person sauna is available.
We had a very refreshing and relaxing two night stay at John and Nancy's. Comfy bed, gorgeous view, hot tub, great movie selection, and a very gracious and thoughtful host. Just the thing we needed at the end of our trip. We would love to return!
John and Nancy are very friendly and their home is warm. The room had a great view - we sat in the hot tub and listened to the waves at night. John laid out a wonderful spread for breakfast - we left with satisfied bellies. We went to yoga with John and enjoyed ourselves.
John and Nancy are the true definition of great hosts! Their house is like heaven on earth. Just an overall great atmosphere, great vibe, and you basically have your very own apartment in the house. Even their dogs have manners. They would not come by the guest's area unless their names are called, which we found pretty impressive. We would not think twice to recommend John and Nancy's to friends or anybody for that matter. John even served us breakfast, and served me tea three times while I was out in the hot tub enjoying the sunrise. What a couple of generous souls! We look forward to going back soon!

My husband and I felt so lucky to be invited to enjoy Nancy and Johns very special home. The view is spectacular and is five star all the way. Private hot tub right off the bedroom and on the deck is the best part of the experience. But so is the energy of the home. Such a nice place to relax and unwind. We hope to meet John and Nancy sometime when we return. We felt very fortunate to stay in this special mermaid home. : )
Thank you John and Nancy for being the graciously accommodating hosts you turned out to be. It was a relaxing pleasure to be at your place. I loved the balance of visiting and privacy. I wish you the best and I hope our paths cross again.
Driving up the coast from the Bay Area, Brookings was a good first night's rest stop. John and Nancy shared wine and snacks and we enjoyed sharing stories in the evening. Before bed, I had a nice hot soak out int the brisk night air outside my cozy room. Breakfast was yummy too.
John and Nancy's place was wonderfully relaxing. We arrived to wine with cheese and crackers. Both John and Nancy(and Arnie) were very easy going. Their place is finely decorated and our room was private with a hot tub that looks over the pacific ocean. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!
John and Nancy are simply wonderful. I felt welcome from the first moment I walked in the front door. Wine! Cheese! Hot tub overlooking the ocean! Spectacular dogs! Comfy bed! Perfect coffee! One really couldn't ask for a better experience.
My partner and I stayed at John and Nancy's for 1 night whilst on route from Seattle to San Francisco. We stayed in many different places over our 3 week holiday, and without a doubt their house was the best experience! The house is like nothing I've ever seen before, it's full of amazing pictures and collections from their travels. The hot tub overlooking the ocean was awesome, a personal highlight! As was the pool table, bar, and big screen TV.
We really couldn't fault this experience, we'd recommend this place in a heartbeat! Unfortunately John and Nancy were away on vacation on the day we stayed, but if the house is in anyway a reflection of your personalities then you must be lovely interesting people!
John and Nancy were great hosts! We were greeted with drinks and cheese and good conversation. I especially enjoyed the early morning soak in the hot tub watching the fog roll in. John prepared a great breakfast and we were surprised by their generosity and willingness to share food and drink and good advice for local sight seeing. The bedroom was lovely and comfortable. Thank you John and Nancy.
