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 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 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.
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, Schwinn Exercise bike, treadmill and elipitical as well as yoga mats. A 2 person sauna is also available.
Interaction with Guests
We can interact as much or as little as you'd like. We love to meet new people and change strangers into our new friends.
Many parks and restaurants are within walking distance. Hiking will require a car to get to trailheads. Parking is included in our driveway for your car.
Other Things to Note
We can often arrange an in-home massage if you'd like this.
We are a smoke free home. You are welcome to use many of the facilities in our home as you would your own... exercise equipment, living room with fireplace, dining room, porch swing, the larger television upstairs for broadcast TV (you will have a smaller TV in your own room where you can watch movies). Please ask about use of washer/dryer, kitchen facilities, BBQ, bicycles. This usually can be arranged.
Unfortunately we did not get to meet John and Nancy, as they were out of town and other folks were playing host in their place.
In any case, we had a lovely visit. The bedroom and bathroom were luxurious and comfortable. Add to that the outdoor jacuzzi on the deck overlooking the beautiful Pacific, the friendly (replacement) hosts, and the yummy and filling breakfast, we have no choice but to agree with the other reviewers: this is a fabulous place to stay if you are going to visit Brookings. It is a 5-star experience at only a 3-star price!
We were made to feel very welcome. Everything was just as described with the added bonus of being able to have a massage by a RMT (for a fee of course) and after a long drive that was mighty welcome. Enjoyed the inn keepers very much and both dogs! Amazing views!
We had a great experience in a great location with great people. We even extended a night! John and Nancy were very accommodating hosts.
Beautiful house and very welcoming.
We will be there again!
Amazing place, incredible sunsets, and generous hospitality. Wonderful memories. Hesitant to leave too good of review as we would like to go back someday and its a one of a kind location with some incredible art work and gracious folks though out. Not to be missed if you happen to get to Brookings. Thanks Nancy and John.
This house as amazing, best views ever and the hosts were more than accommodating with a nice little breakfast in the morning before we left!
We had a memorable experience! Incredible view of harbor and ocean from private deck and hot tub, watched a sunrise that was too beautiful for words! John was a lovely host. We will be back
