First impression the yard was in a run down stage. Once inside, the good part was that it had a lot of nostalgic carpentry throughout the house. The bad part was that the shower in our room did not work properly. We were advised to minimize our water use due to a tank problem. The room was too small for the furniture it had.
The owner was friendly but seemed overwhelmed with the work of running the place.
If you are into historic furniture etc.. you may like this place but I believe it is overpriced for what you get. The location was close to town and glass beach but in the shabby part of town.

Breakfast (now served in the original dining room on the ground floor of the main house) features the freshest local and organic ingredients, including eggs from our own hens. The virgin redwood ballroom on the third floor of the main house is a unique and beautiful space, ideal for all sorts of gatherings. Weekly dances and occasional live music concerts put the extraordinary studio-quality acoustics to good use -- no artificial amplification necessary!
