About This Listing
Romantic, relaxed getaway or rejuvenating adventure, you'll find it here. Experience one of the best ocean views on the Oregon coast from your own room and deck. You will not be disappointed. Over 250 couples have rated it 5 Star!
The main guest suite is in a separate wing of the house and consists of bedroom with king size opium bed and an attached living room with sofa that can be opened up into a queen sized bed. (There is a small extra charge if you have more than two guests in your party.) The suite overlooks the ocean and harbor with mountains in the background. The king sized 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 living room is a large deck with hot tub overlooking the ocean. We have a private acre lot so bathing suits are 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 some 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.

Highly recommended ocean view haven, quiet and private, but within walking distance of restaurants in Brookings. This is a deluxe accomodation with great bed, Asian theme, private bath, hot tub, and amazing bay/ocean view. We really enjoyed our time with warm, creative, and engaging hosts John & Nancy. Thanks!
John and Nancy are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed a very warm welcoming on our first evening. The stunning view, from their beautiful house, at the ocean shore is just marvelous. Deer are seen right in their backyard. John spoils his guests with a wonderful breakfast.

My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay at John and Nancy's home. Their home is beautiful. From the moment we arrived we were treated as if we were in a five star hotel. Even better because we had Howser to cover our every other need. Leslie was wonderful and made us feel very comfortable. She laid out a breakfast spread that would put any other B and B to shame. The room was perfect, fresh and clean with a fantastic view. The bed, pillows and linens were luxurious. This is a home away from home. We hope to stay again. My hats off to John and Nancy. Thank you for creating such an opportunity.
If we could give more than 5 stars, we would! John and Nancy were excellent hosts and made us feel right at home. The room with the hot tub on the balcony was perfect! Breakfast in the morning was yummy and we had fun socializing with John and Nancy (and their family). We would come back again in a heartbeat and recommend you do the same!
John and Nancy’s place was very relaxing and accommodating. We knew John and Nancy were going to be on a trip from the message I received after our last minute booking, but John assured us that there would be someone home. Sadly, we weren't able to meet John or Nancy after hearing all of their amazing reviews. However, the resident that was living there was warm and open and showed us around. We only stayed for a night, but it was a very rejuvenating experience. The bed and fireplace combination was amazing. We didn't get to use the Jacuzzi since we weren't there for that long, but the view from the patio was absolutely breathtaking. If we did not have to leave so soon, an early morning sunrise soak in the Jacuzzi overlooking the water would have been the cherry on top. I guess we’ll just have a visit again!
John and Nancy were more than welcoming. We truly felt at home from the moment we walked in. They will engage you as much as you feel comfortable. We really enjoyed the conversations as they are incredibly bright and interesting people. We only stayed one night, but wished it was more. The next morning they had already began making breakfast without us even asking. My husband and I are still talking about John's eggs!
Their home is clean and beautiful. You can not beat the view or the hospitality. If we ever make our way to Brookings again we'd definitely stay with John and Nancy again.
John & Nancy were incredibly welcoming and friendly. Thank you both so much for your hospitality!
Their home is beautiful and even the incredible pics you see don't do the view justice! The room was very spacious, private, and had one of the most (if not the most) comfortable beds I've ever slept in. Hot tub also an incredible bonus. John and Nancy (and I'd be remiss to not include their live-in friend Arnie) were absolutely fascinating people and the opportunity we had to chat and spend time with the 3 of them and their dogs (2 friendly and wonderfully behaved) was alone worth the price of admission. Whether you're passing through or just looking for a relaxing retreat this place is a can't miss.
