“Amazing location, very private”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

My husband and I stayed here at the end of an Oregon Coast trip, and while we enjoyed many of the B&Bs we stayed in, this was the perfect spot to finish. By the Sea is literally located steps above the beach, with a private stairway down to an almost deserted beach. There are other houses in the area, but this feels very, very private. Our room had a fabulous covered deck, very nicely furnished, where we could set on stools at an elevated table to enjoy our breakfast, or in more traditional chairs and table. Fabulous sea stacks right offshore, tidepools filled with colorful starfish, even a white seal sitting right offshore, on the rocks. Unlike most B&Bs, here the lovely owner, Carol, provides a stocked fridge/microwave/coffee maker in the room (there's also a guest lounge with other beverages, cookies, etc.). In addition to the in-room food (yogurt, bagels, English muffins, scones, juice, oatmeal, etc.) she delivers fresh fruit and a hot dish to a table outside your door in the morning. After more than a week of sharing breakfast with strangers (wll very nice!), we were ready for some privacy at the beginning of the day. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. In fact, we hustled back from the beach to check out at 11, only to load up the car and go back to the beach for another half hour. We hated to leave...and are already looking for an excuse to return! This location simply cannot be beat.

Every detail in this wonderful B&B has been seen to. The deck to my bedroom overlooked the ocean. There was a table for eating, and comfortable chairs for relaxing on the deck.
The fridge was well stocked with three yogurt choices, juices, and eggs (you can poach them in a microwave), coffee, half and half, jams and jellies. Ample muffins and bagels were on a server in my room, and every morning, a tray of some home-made goodie was outside my door. Carol and Larry could not have been friendlier. I found the decorations lots of fun. Cupids, Marilyn Monroe, mermaids, and in the common room, Larry's working jukebox collection. The place is spotless. There was not so much as a smudge on the jukebox glass. I will be returning, again and again

Room Tip: The Miranda an Cupid rooms face the ocean. The cottage is larger and has full cooking and dining fac...

My husband and I were looking for a great place to stay our last two nights of a week long trip. We found this bed and breakfast for a reasonable price and with a great view. We stayed in the room called "The Cottage." The whole time we were in the room we couldn't really relax because we felt we were in an antique store, and surrounded by cherubs. It had an old musty wood smell and I was afraid I might break something the the cherubs would attack. I was very disappointed with the "breakfast." I've had better continental breakfasts at hotels. We only managed to stay one night and I just wanted to leave. When we talked to the owner, who at first seemed very nice, she refused to budge on a money refund of any sort. Not a good way to end a trip.

Its hard for me to properly put into words the value of this B&B. Let me first start with the obvious… The VIEW! From the minute we turned the corner to enter the house we lost our breath. A beautiful house on what looks like the edge of the world, we happened to arrive at sunset and it was a sight off of a postcard. The big rocks blocking the shine of what could have been the most perfect sunset, while reflecting off the ocean to create a sparkle that could be seen for miles. Then we walked into the house, greeted by Carroll (the owner) she gave us a tour and told us a little background on the home, it was VERY CLEAN (and I am like an inspector when we travel when it comes to cleanliness). The room had everything you would need and it was presented wonderfully. We stayed in the “Miranda” room and it was beautiful.. the sliding glass door opens to a private beach, the fresh beach air and sound of the waves crashing onto shore are enough to put you in a trance, moving on the bed and bedding were extremely comfortable we had an amazing nights sleep. There is a stairwell leading to the private beach that is an absolute must walk with your morning coffee. In the evening I recommend the hot tub and a glass of wine combined with the soundtrack of the ocean, its paradise! Not only will we recommend this to all of our friends, co workers and family…but we will actively be looking for reasons to travel back to Brookings to visit this little gem nestled on the edge of the world.

The view and beach access are wonderful but we did not care for the inside decor. The breakfast consisted of a little basket of muffin/rolls with a refrigerator containing half-empty jars of jelly, butter and cream cheese--this is a bed and BREAKFAST? We never did meet the owners so I guess they were on their own vacation and I hope found a better place to stay than what we had.

While the rooms and bathrooms are modest, the house has an eccentric charm and the owners are lovely people.

I rated this outstanding for location, location, location. It is truly "By The Sea."
