The room is fine, if a bit small. Very clean and we'll cared for. Breakfast is fine. The owner is friendly and helpful. She replaced the feather pillows with non allergenic pillows and made sure to provide gluten free options for breakfast. It is a very short walk to the beach and a nice, quiet location.

Dear Debbie in Denver, Thank you for writing such a nice review. It is rewarding when people are happy with their stay. I hope you did know that the Bistro was available to you for your use at any time with the Zen Room; you do have a sitting and dining room with the Zen Room. I regret it is... More

We chose the Zen Garden due to it's proximity to the state park, where we had friends staying over the July 4th weekend. It did not disappoint; we were able to walk to the park, and the beach access to the Zen Garden couldn't have been better. Breakfast was customized, timely, and tasty! The room was cozy and comfortable.

The area and the property is beautiful at the Zen Garden and it is perfect if you enjoy quite and peace (no TV) and a wonderful customized breakfast outside in the garden to start your day.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Zen Garden Bed and Breakfast. The room was nice and bed was comfortable. Breakfast was amazing and many choices to choose from.

A much-needed rest and retreat at the beach! The room was intimate, beautifully decorated and very calming. Delicious breakfast, with several choices, served in a lovely private dining area. We very much enjoyed talking with Mr. and Mrs. Smigal, who made us feel welcome and were very respectful of our privacy. We hope to return!

We just finished up our Oregon vacation, and one of the highlights was our 2-night stay in Manzanita at the Zen Garden B&B. We stayed in the smaller Zen room and it was fine for the two of us since we were out much of the day touring along the coast. The bed was quite comfortable and we had nice... More

The place was perfect even before we arrived. Our host, Mrs Smigel was clear with instructions and her requirements for checkin etc. Being we travel a great deal, we love policies & procedures which means: no microwaves (thank you for being green), no rubbish left behind, bring own beach towels etc. We totally understood all the reasons.
