4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was neat and clean. It had a cozy feel that gave it a personal welcome touch. The breakfast was timely and excellent. The fresh produce and care in preparation was deeply appreciated. The site was central to beach hiking and towns along the coast. It had free wifi which came in handy since the TV only played DVDs.... More

My wife I spent three wonderful nights at the Zen Garden. The house is on the far south end of town, with the State Park and the beach only steps away. If you are looking for a peaceful few days on the Oregon Coast, within reach of cool shops and warm, hospitable restaurants, you can't go wrong at Zen Garden.... More

The Hiroshigi suite is very nicely furnished and comes complete with a vast array of books to peruse & a huge flat screen tv. It's a short walk to the beach in a quiet area of town. However, it is on the bottom floor with the owner's home above and beginning at 6:45 every morning you can hear every step... More

We stayed for my birthday over the long 4th of July Weekend and couldn't have been happier. The Hiroshigi suite is beautiful! It's like having your own place. The Zen gardens so peaceful and the Japanese soaking tub a perfect end to a chillly day on the beach. We loved Mrs. Smigel who is so kind and friendly and so... More

The Zen Garden Bed and Breakfast was one of the best places I've ever stayed. Mrs. Smigel was the kindest person from the moment she answered the phone to take our reservation, to the morning we left and she had a pleasant chat with us. Her communication was great. We knew everything about the area well before we arrived. I... More

My wife and I came all the way from Central Florida to Portland, and then out to the Oregon coast. While we found Cannon Beach a "bit of a madhouse" with too many people (though Ecola State Park is to die for), Manzanita proved to be our cup of tea. And there was the perfect place to stay - the...

We stayed for 4 days and enjoyed our stay very much. So peaceful, great breakfast, close to the beach (at this time of year, for great walks) and convenient for touring North or South from there. The hosts live upstairs and were present and helpful but discreet. We had some interesting conversations. We had the large suite (with plenty of... More

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.

Dear Lis517, Thank you for writing such a nice review. I am very happy we could provide the location you were looking for. If you need to be peaceful near the beach and the State Park, then Zen Garden is the place to be. Please let me know if you would like to stay here again. More

We stayed for a couple of nights last week and had a perfectly peaceful, quite stay. 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.
