It's charming, quirky.....but it's the hostess that's the real deal here.

This "olde" home belongs with the San Francisco Victorians. Original floors, beautiful windows....great history. It's stuffed full of a quirky collision of western and oriental art. Ya...it could use a good cleaning. But the complimentary wines, hearty breakfast, and view of the bay from our third floor room with fireplace made this experience very comfortable.

And it's 80+ year old hostess is the gem here. Sally could have easily charged me for a missed night's stay (but didn't). Her stories are many and her frequent passion for gambling is a hoot! She made this an adventure. Who else can share a personal experience with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page in her home! (great photo in entry).

Thanks Sally....we'll be talking about this one for a while!

We had a reservation for one night at This Olde House. However we didn't account for Labor Day traffic and knew we'd get in quite late. We called Sally to let her know and she told us it was no problem. Once we arrived, Sally met us at the door, showed us where the wine and snacks were and then upgraded our room at no additional cost. We didn't arrive until about 9:30 and Sally usually leaves no later than 8 but she stuck around and we were very grateful for that, the wine and the upgrade. The house (a classic Victorian) is a mix of old Victorian style and and Japanese cultures. In order to fit the in-suite bathrooms in the rooms they had to be tight. If you're really tall the ceilings in the baths will be a little close. But they didn't affect us. But the best was in store in the morning. We had a wonderful breakfast of fresh fruit, baked French toast with fresh blueberries and then scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and home fries. There is always a pot of hot water for tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc. and the evening wine is a real plus. On top of all that Sally is a hoot. She told us all about her gambling and how she cam in 3rd in a big in Vegas. The next time we visit Coos Bay we know where we'll be staying.

Sally, the owner, truly enjoys entertaining her quests. The furnishings are an interesting mix of antiques, heirlooms, and Japanese collectibles. She opened a wonderful bottle of wine for happy hour and put out a beautiful.

Room Tip: One room has a Double bed plus a day bed perfect for parents and a child.

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.
