An extended mid-summer weekend visit to the Long Beach peninsula provided the opportunity to stay at this unique bed and breakfast. Based in one of the two 180 degree view rooms in the main house provided magnificent views of the Columbia estuary from the relaxing, antique filled ground floor rooms and the upstairs bedroom. The comfortable bed was positioned to...

I was looking for a quiet anniversary getaway that has an ocean view, but this house greatly exceeded my expectations. THE HOUSE: I was very pleasantly surprised by the sophistication of this house. It has Chinese and Asian antiques to match up to the name of the B&B, and it also has local artists' work as well as American Indian's...

I have been eyeing this place for some time, and when I saw a living social coupon for a two night stay, I jumped on it. It is in a remote little bay by itself although it is pretty close to the fishing town of Ilwaco. We were there on a weekend where there was only one other couple who...

We wanted a relaxing destination for our Summer vacation this year and China Beach fit the bill perfectly. We stayed at the Audubon Cottage next to the China Beach house and had an amazing stay! The outdoor deep soaker tub was incredibly relaxing and the home itself was as close to perfect as we could've hoped for. We spent our...

My sweetie and I were looking for a secluded place to spend our birthdays, two days apart. The reviews on TripAdvisor steered us to the China Beach Retreat. When we first drove down the driveway we knew we were home; a most stunning spot in the middle of some of the most beautiful coastal scenery the NW has to offer....

We are presently staying there with my brother and his wife, and we are so enjoying everything about it! We live in Florida, and to be lucky enough to have perfect weather on the Washington Coast is a miracle in itself. Make sure you plan for dinner at the Shelburne Inn, as it is excellent. We would highly recommend it!

We recently stayed at China Beach Retreat with two other couples. Several years ago we had a wonderful stay at the Shelburne Inn (same owners) and so were very much looking forward to our stay at China Beach and if possible, enjoyed it even more. We occupied the first floor bedroom, with adjoining bath (with jacuzzi tub for two) and...

The location is great. On a clear day (which we enjoyed) you can see the Coast range in Oregon. The furnishings are beautiful, yet homey. I have never stayed in a place with such artwork on the walls. Our bedroom had a great view of the tidelands and the bay, and the bed was excellent. Although we did little cooking,...

I loved waking up and looking out the windows at the birds and the water. It is very peaceful and relaxing. I highly recommend this lovely spot to anyone.

Obviously the inn keepers paid serious attention to what guests might need or want: lavender soap next to the whirlpool tub, high grade knives in a kitchen drawer, easy chairs facing lovely, peaceful, gently changing tide flats, tastefully chosen furniture...all betray the sensitive and intelligent and creative minds of the hosts. We want to come back. Again and again and...

“This is definitely for people who want solitude and beauty. It's very close to Ilwaco, Long Beach, and the attractions, but it's super calm and quiet once you get there. We loved it, but we are more for the peaceful vibe, so this was perfect!”
