We spent two nights in the main house. Lovely view, nice deck for bird watching, reading a book, sipping wine, etc. Location is very convenient for hiking in Cape Disappointment State Park. My only complaint is the seating downstairs in the main house is horrendous -- one comfortable chair but the couch and other two chairs are totally broken down.... More

We had a relaxing time here with a storm and the lots of sunshine. See our sunrise photo of Baker Bay taken Nov 20 2013. The house is 5 minutes from town but very quiet and remote. No TV in the main house which was ok for a few days.

We enjoyed a night in the Audubon Cottage during a stormy weekend in September. This is a unique, well executed lodging experience on the edge of North America. The house itself is a beautiful little architectural gem, with top quality wood working, tile, appliances, and modern, comfortable amenities. Everything worked as advertised, and we found the property and the staff... More

We had the best time at the China Beach Retreat. Great beds, spectacular view and even a sunny day! Gourmet breakfast at the Shelburne Inn - wonderful with fresh picked wild mushrooms gathered by the friendly Innkeeper. Will be returning in the winter hopefully to sit in the living room and watch a storm roll in.

An extended mid-summer weekend visit to the Long Beach peninsula provided the opportunity to stay at this unique bed and breakfast. Based in one of the two 180 degree view rooms in the main house provided magnificent views of the Columbia estuary from the relaxing, antique filled ground floor rooms and the upstairs bedroom. The comfortable bed was positioned to... More

I was looking for a quiet anniversary getaway that has an ocean view, but this house greatly exceeded my expectations. THE HOUSE: I was very pleasantly surprised by the sophistication of this house. It has Chinese and Asian antiques to match up to the name of the B&B, and it also has local artists' work as well as American Indian's... More

I have been eyeing this place for some time, and when I saw a living social coupon for a two night stay, I jumped on it. It is in a remote little bay by itself although it is pretty close to the fishing town of Ilwaco. We were there on a weekend where there was only one other couple who... More

We wanted a relaxing destination for our Summer vacation this year and China Beach fit the bill perfectly. We stayed at the Audubon Cottage next to the China Beach house and had an amazing stay! The outdoor deep soaker tub was incredibly relaxing and the home itself was as close to perfect as we could've hoped for. We spent our... More

My sweetie and I were looking for a secluded place to spend our birthdays, two days apart. The reviews on TripAdvisor steered us to the China Beach Retreat. When we first drove down the driveway we knew we were home; a most stunning spot in the middle of some of the most beautiful coastal scenery the NW has to offer.... More

We are presently staying there with my brother and his wife, and we are so enjoying everything about it! We live in Florida, and to be lucky enough to have perfect weather on the Washington Coast is a miracle in itself. Make sure you plan for dinner at the Shelburne Inn, as it is excellent. We would highly recommend it!
