“Spectacular!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Hard to decide which was the best part of this location - but the view has it! Absolutely STUNNING vista over Pelican Bay. We were actually fortunate enough to see wildlife in the ocean!! (seal or whale-couldn't tell-not enough experience)
The room was quiet, clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Hosts Barbara and Gary were able to tell us lots of info about the area, i.e. restaurants, attractions, wildlife, redwood forests and things to find on the beach. Easy walk to the ever changing ocean. Accommodations were clean and well maintained. Continental breakfast was perfect to enjoy while watching the waves from our room. The privacy was much enjoyed. (I don't like eating breakfast with strangers in my bathrobe) We will definitely stay in this place again!

Beautiful setting with a fantastic ocean view. You are very close to the beach....just out your door and down the deck stairs and then down the beach path (bit precarious if you are not steady on your feet) and beach staircase. Barbara showed us everything we needed to know about our little studio (living room with fridge and microwave, etc., bedroom and bath). We were very cozy and comfy, and it was clean. The decor is not the latest and we could hear a bit of noise from the next studio but nothing much and we were not bothered by it. The view and location overrides all. We were even invited to join in on a beach campfire. Wonderful sunset and sunrise. We saw an otter too!

We keep coming back because of easy access to the mouth of the Winchuck River and Pacific Ocean. Then there are the gracious hosts who do whatever they can to make us comfortable. The rooms are fresh and clean with excellent bedding. We like to bird and have views of kingfishers, cormorants, osprey, hummingbirds etc.. We have seen otters playing close by in the river. There are many adventures, restaurants, and wonderful beaches near by. Lowden's is a great place to unwind and enjoy nature.

Room Tip: Choose the room on the up river end of the house.

Wow, I couldn't disagree more with the last reviewer, who found it "smelly." We loved this B&B from top to bottom and in between, and didn't find it at all smelly! It was very clean and fresh-smelling, actually. We also had a night of our honeymoon here, and we wanted to stay a week, we loved it so much. The views of the river AND the ocean were amazing, our unit was spacious, complete with a bathroom with two sinks and a deep tub for soaking, a fireplace in the huge bedroom, a comfy bed, a deck, storage places, games, movies on a bazillion disks, and every convenience we could dream up and poke around looking for. Our host and hostess were the friendliest and most accommodating couple imaginable. We found them delightful to talk to, and could easily imagine being friends with them if we lived in the area. Our walk to the beach was a great adventure; we actually enjoyed the challenge of the downward climb (on stairs that were not at all rickety) and the driftwood scramble. In lieu of breakfast being served (Our hosts needed to be up and out early the following day, and we arrived late without a reservation), we were given a break on the nightly cost, which we thought was very fair. We hated to leave this wonderful location, and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Because there are only two apartments, reservations are a must; we were lucky that they had had a cancellation that evening and had our unit available. It was "meant to be."

I wanted to like this place-- especially since the couple who runs it are clearly so nice. But this place was just not up to par. First of all, our room smelled. Like dog, probably, maybe cat. You'd think since its only doors are big sliders that it could easily be aired out (the owners have a couple dogs-- not sure if they are where the smell came from). When we stayed it was pretty cold and foggy, so we couldn't air it out.

And the furnishings are VERY dated. Surprisingly so. It felt like staying in a great aunt's basement. Complete with flies and very spotty TV/cable reception. We ended up watching something on our computer, because the wifi was more reliable than the tv.

It was right on the beach, but you had to climb down some pretty dilapidated steps, through an overgrown path (that seems like it would be pretty simple to trim back, if they took the time), and then across some huge pieces of driftwood. We also had hoped for a little more privacy. Since two rooms share the same deck, even though we had a nice view, we had to keep the curtains closed for privacy. Not as romantic on our honeymoon as we had hoped.

Upside- free wifi.

My and I wife stayed here on our honeymoon up the coast. It was very quiet and peaceful. The lodging is apartment style with your own bathroom, bedroom and living room. The house is on the beach with a great view. The host is very nice and helpful. There really isn't a breakfast, scones and fruit, but it is good and we knew that going in so we were not upset. I recommend this place for a clean and relaxing get away.

If you are heading north, ask the host about the petting Zoo!!

Great spot for a weekend retreat! If you're looking for a few days of peace and quiet, with nothing more than the rumble of the ocean in the background, Lowden's is the place for you. The B&B has two large suites (we traveled as a pair of couples and rented them both) with separate bedrooms and living area. The owners are thoughtful, friendly, and accommodating; they really go the extra mile to ensure guests feel comfortable and welcome. The best part, all this comes with a very reasonable price tag, comparable to that of motels in the area. As the owner explained, there is one set price regardless of the season, so you never feel "price gouged". B&B property is ocean front, and a phenomenal opportunity for individuals who enjoy walking the beach.

Room Tip: This is a two suite bed and breakfast; both suites are similar; however, the north facing suite has...
