This is a very lovely B&B located less than a block away from the beach. It was very convenient for walking everywhere in the main town of Seaside. The innkeeper was very friendly and nice even though my husband and I are a young couple. After check-in we didn't really see any other people except for at breakfast, which was nice, it made it seem that we were the only people staying in the house!
Breakfast was absolutely delicious, and as the pickiest eater, that is a huge compliment! Also, as another note, the previous reviewer said that the innkeeper didn't speak to them at breakfast, but when we were there she went around to each table to see how everything was and if we slept well, etc.
The only thing that we had a problem with was the street noise. Our room was on the corner and we heard noise all night long (Kimberly room). We are used to sleeping with a fan at home. I would recommend that the innkeepers supply earplugs for the guests in the street facing rooms.
Other than that we had a great stay!
