“Way back but beautiful”
Reviewed 14 October 2010

We stayed at Flora's Lakehouse for one night in may 2010.

We chose the B&B based on the travel plans for our road trip and it took a whole day to get from Cannon Beach to Langlois.

When calling to confirm our late arrival (around 8.30PM) we were told by Bertie, one of the caretakers, that we'd better get something
to eat first "because we're way back". Well, if we'd done that, we would only have been there around 10 and it was getting dark already
so we decided on driving straight to the B&B and upon arrival ask for a snack or muffin or fruit or whatever, but no such luck as with some other B&B's where
we were offered dinner upon our late arrival. This meant we had to drive all the way back to Bandon to get some sandwiches at a Subway and some coke
at Ray's Food.

We booked the garden room, which is a spacious room with a double bed and a single bed. Nice thing is that you can enter the room from the hallway in the house,
but also from the porch on the back of the house. Be careful though, when taking the stairs down next to the porch. The stairs are not well lit at night, so I missed a step
and fell.

The room was clean the only thing that wasn't were the closets. The doors were full of dust; seemed like they didn't have a guest in that room for ages that used the closet.

Free wi-fi works fine, but you are warned not to download movies. :-) The phone signal was very week sometimes, so when we had to make a call, it didn't go through, since...
they are way back.

Bathroom was fine, shower/bath was clean.

At breakfast the next morning we got to meet Liz and Will, the very friendly owners of the B&B. It was all you can eat breakfast with pancakes, delicious Misty Meadows jam, cereal, fruit, granola, ... Yummy!
No soda, so I brought my own for breakfast. We also got to meet John, the other caretaker.

After breakfast we took a nice walk to Flora's Lake and the desolate but incredibly beautiful beach.

Probably would stay here again.

My husband and I drove to Langlois for our anniversary celebration. It's always a treat to visit the Oregon Coastline, and now we have a beautiful new destination to visit when we want to get away for some very relaxing down-time.

The well designed structure faces Floras Lake, providing a view of the ocean, which extends beyond the lake with only a small dune separating the two. The grounds where spectacular, with a wide variety of plantings and groups of flowers, trees and shrubs that accented their design. All of the rooms have large windows and back doors that lead to a comfortable, common deck. We sat on the deck at sunset and enjoyed the glow of the setting sun as it settled over the lake and the ocean.

We enjoyed the company of the owners as well as the caretakers. Each had a story to tell and we felt comfortable in their presence. The breakfast was simple, healthy and tasty. Liz's home made granola was excellent. We will be back for another vacation!

We surprised our teenagers with windsurfing lessons during our drive down the Oregon Coast. Floras Lake is a perfect setting. All gear is provided including wetsuits and incredible teachers. The kids were on the water until we had to pull them off - the windsurfers that were on the lake come for fun and camped at the nearby campground or stayed at the Floras Lake B&B. We stopped by the B&B while the kids were taking their lessons and they offered us coffee and a nice chat with their guests. We did not stay at the B&B or campground but got a good look at both - clean and well kept. Highly recommend!

We deliberated for a long time before choosing Flora's Lake because it is about twenty-five minutes' drive from Bandon. We need not have worried though because this is an exceptional bed and breakfast - a really beautiful house in a magical location overlooking the lake and just three minutes from the Pacific seashore.

Will and Liz are delightful hosts and their housekeepers John and Bertie are extremely friendly and helpful. John frequently appeared just for a chat or to check that we were OK and gave us some great ideas for hikes.

A very lovely and peaceful place - we will not forget sitting out on the deck watching the sun slowly sinking over the lake - beautiful!

Thanks Will and Liz!

What a find! First of all, this B&B differs from most in that it is fairly new construction. Most inns are antique, historic homes near medium-to-large cities. Flora’s Lake House is a contemporary-yet- welcoming design which spotlights the beauty of the natural environment – and is far from any large cities. But that’s what makes this place so great. It’s the perfect weekend or week-long escape, and it also scores high as an overnighter for travelers enjoying the outstanding Oregon coast.

The living area’s vaulted, wood-paneled ceiling creates a space perfect for total relaxation – and it’s also the spot where guests enjoy a fabulous buffet breakfast every morning. Our room, the Nautical Room, was beautifully decorated and had an extraordinarily comfortable bed. Each of the four rooms has a door which opens onto their own private section of porch. Ours had a nice view of the lake and, beyond that, the Pacific Ocean, which you can hear as its waves pound the shore (super-relaxing to hear at night!) We also had a bay window with built-in window seat. What a treat to gaze out and listen to the surf!

The owner also runs a windsurfing school at the lake; this pocket of landscape apparently enjoys a climate that’s perfect for that kind of activity all season long. It was exciting to take a walk down there and watch the kite boarders in action!

The caretakers, John & Bertie, seemed like old friends as soon as we met them. The other guests were great, too, and we had a blast over breakfast – lots of laughs and fun travel stories were shared. Breakfast is plentiful and delicious – everything from freshly baked blueberry muffins and homemade granola to generously sliced melon, bagels, juice, hard boiled eggs, all the fixings and more. John made sure no one’s coffee cup was ever less than half full – and tea drinkers had a terrific choice of organic teas. (Liz normally does breakfast and she was out of town; I have a feeling the selection might usually be even greater, but honestly I couldn't eat another bite as it was!) They make you feel so comfortable - you really are a guest in their home.

I don’t believe the owners do much advertising, and they sure don’t have to. Word of mouth on this place does it all! They stay pretty booked all season as far as I can tell, so make your plans early! I almost hate to spill the beans on the place (I’d love to keep it a secret!), but they simply do too good a job here not to sing their praises from the rooftop.

Will & Liz, John & Bertie – well done, Friends. Well done!

A casual visitor to the Oregon coast would never just happen upon Floras Lake House. The extra effort needed to find this B&B is well worth it. The house is comfortable, the lake and area around the house are beautiful, and the staff are welcoming. Each morning the owners, Liz and Will, have breakfast and conversation with the guests. When Liz and Will are not around, the caretakers (Bertie and John) are available to answer questions, recommend a restaurant, etc.

Our two-night stay at Floras Lake House was very pleasant.

My husband John and I have stayed at the Floras Lake House B & B several times over the last four years. Liz and Will, the owners and John and Bertie the caretakers are delightful and so warm they make us feel at home. There are four rooms that are individually unique in their decor and each one is spotlessly clean (we have stayed in each one). The towels are thick, the beds are comfortable, and the views are a feast for the eyes.

One of the things I enjoy most is the quiet I find at this inn that is tucked away from the bustle of the world. The lake is serene and the ocean is a short walk from the house. There is easy access to a beach that is usually deserted. We love sitting on the dunes and watching the waves roll in as well as taking a leisurely stroll. For the more adventuresome, there is wind surfing on the lake with equipment and lessons available.

Breakfast varies from visit to visit but each one has been delicious. Each time we have had a warm dish as well as homemade granola, fruit, and different types of bread. The breakfast conversations range from intellectually thoughtful discussions to hysterically comical stories.

We both highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast and plan on visiting often in the coming years.

  • Liked — The friendly people.
  • Disliked — It is a bit of a drive from Bandon but was worth it for the quality of accommodations.
