Don't miss out on the oppotunity to stay at (proprietor) Sally's 1800's Victorian mansion! It is homey and pleasantly cluttered with items from days gone by, many of them from Japan. Sally, at age 80, is an absolute "kick" who will keep you laughing...with her stories... over a couple of glasses of wine. She will tell you about the "Robert Plant Room" and other folks who have stayed there during the past 15-20 years, as well as some of her own, interesting experiences. This is one spunky lady! Our room was large and comfortable and had a nice, private bath. Breakfast was generous and terrific, especially her homemade strawberry preserves. She will point you in the direction of a good fish restaurant. And there is a great shop with Myrtle Wood bowls, utensils, gifts, etc. just outside of Coos Bay. The downtown area looked interesting, too. If you prefer a B.&B. a "modern" look don't go here. But this place has charm and ambiance and is sure to please most travelers. Sally will, undoubtedly, make your stay a memorable one.

Owner/hostess Sally was wonderfully kind, generous and funny. We enjoyed our stay so much we will be back with extended family. The food was delicious and plentiful, the house is beautiful and quirky.

This Olde House is really something special and unexpected. We stayed here for just one night as part of our roadtrip down the West Coast, and after some minor navigational issues, parked up behing a beautiful classic S-class mercedes bearing our hostess' name. The guesthouse is late 19th century and sumptuously furnished. We were greeted in person by the owner, Sally (Hideko), and as we were the only guests that night she upgraded us to the honeymoon suite (redwood) - in fairness we were actually on our honeymoon! Needless to say, the room was quite special with a small kitchenette, wood-burner and a large window overlooking the not-so-scenic Coos bay. The room was very clean, with good quality linen and a comfortable bed. The bathroom was a little small, which was simply due to the restraints of the building. The shower was very low so taller guests might struggle! Toiletries were basic. There was no internet provided, which I guess in this day and age really is a bit of an oversight, as it is so easy to install wireless internet with minimal maintenance!

Breakfast was fried and very generous. Sally had also baked us not just French toast but some lovely blueberry pie made with home grown produce. Sadly we did not have the appetite for this, so she packed it away for us to enjoy on our trip to Crater Lake.

Overall this is not just a good guesthouse, but a very unique experience and highly recommended!

I found this b&b online when searching for someplace to stay during my brothers recent nuptuals.

Every review I read basically said the same thing, the owner is super and the breakfast is great. So, I can't just repeat the same thing everyone else said, so I'm going to say, "the breakfast is super and the owner is great!"

Ha, ha. All kidding aside, this place was very nice. It was like going to visit your grandmother, the one with the flowery wall paper and the windows made with the old glass that makes everything outside look wavey. Yes the widows could have used a wash, and if you looked really hard you might find a little dust, but:

1/ The location is very accessible
2/ They have manual fitness (you have to climb the stairs to get to your room)
3/ The rooms are comfortable. Ours (the magnolia) had a king bed, twin daybed and a small eating area. Our private in-suite bathroom also had a refrigerator and microwave.
4/ You get a complimentry bottle of wine, juice and bottled water.
5/ Wi-Fi
6/ The owner, Sally, is very friendly and she's just as cute as can be.
7/ Breakfast is awesome. Ours consisted of juices (plural), baked french toast with fresh blueberries, scrambled eggs, cottage potatoes, bacon, sausage, croissants and home made blackberry jam.
8/ And a jar of homemade blackberry jam to take home!

She will give you a discount (10%) on your return visit.

So if you're visiting the Oregon Coast and want to stay in a nice friendly, comfortable atmosphere, just off of Hwy 101, than send an email or call Sally. Tell her Sisi's Family sent you. You won't regret it!

Our rooms was $145 + tax for 3 persons ($156 total). Don't let those Oregonians fool you, they have tax, the just charge it to the tourists! But worth the price.

We stayed at This Olde House in Coos Bay for two nights during a road trip of Northern California and Southern Oregon. It was a very comfortable experience.

This Olde House is a 1890s Victorian near the central part of old Coos Bay. The location is very easy to get to, and close to almost everything you'd want to do in Coos Bay.

The inn itself screams Victorian and kitsch at the same time. There is a ton of Victorian detail everywhere you look, including local redwood mouldings. There is also a ton of bric-a-brac everywhere. It gives you the sense that you're staying at your eccentric aunt's house, which makes you get into the "make yourself at home" space very quickly.

We stayed in the Redwood Room, which occupies the entire top floor of the house. The room was huge, with a King-sized bed, a kitchenette, a living room, a dining room and an in-suite bathroom. It also had a twin bed in the living room for a child or a single. If you have mobility problems, this would not be the room for you, though...you have to climb two flights of stairs to get there. All rooms require climbing at least one flight of stairs, in fact.

The room was clean and very comfortable. It had a great, King mattress. It also had two big arm chairs for watching a new, flat screen TV. And a dining table in a bay window that looked out over the downtown area.

We had our dog with us, and he was also very welcomed and comfortable here. The innkeeper (Saly) is a big animal lover, so this is the place if you're traveling with your four-legged friend.

The breakfasts were some of the best we've had at a B&B. Saly gives you a tremendous amount of food, so you won't go hungry. There was always an egg dish, a desserty dish (bread pudding or cobbler) and fresh juices.

Saly is also a really cool host. She is a 78 year-old woman who grew up near Hiroshima in Japan, but has lived in the U.S. since the 1960s. She is very spirited, feisty and a bit of a commedienne. She will entertain you with stories of her family in Japan while you eat.

She also made us homemade blackberry jam from berries on her property. And homemade jarred tuna caught off the coast of Coos Bay the day before. This helped us experience the local flavor.

And the rates are very reasonable. We paid $195 per night for this huge room and breakfast.

All in all, we couldn't have been more comfortable here. We will definitely stay here the next time we're in Coos Bay.
