“Nice View... but that was about all.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2009

The house and room was very clean and comfortable and had a great view of the Ocean. I liked that they had a guest computer available for checking email and surfing the Internet which was nice when we wanted to look up info on the area. The Inn Keeper is not the owner and was not around us much besides breakfast time so it was much different that other B and Bs we had stayed in before where the Inn keeper is also the owner and was always available to answer questions and make sure all your needs are met. Our jetted tub did not work and there were ants in our room. Breakfast was OK with nothing special to write about.

My sister and I stayed at this Inn during our drive up the coast and loved it. Yes, it's cluttered. Yes, it needs to be redecorated. Yes, there are some weeds in the garden. But look past those insignificant things and you'll find amazing views, a thoughtful and kind innkeeper (Nerina), and an outstanding breakfast.

Nerina is a graduate of a top culinary institute and we were the lucky beneficiaries of her experience. She also showed us some of the amenities for guests including a refrigerator for our personal items (a nice bottle of Oregon wine), a computer with internet, outdoor items such as jackets and sand pails, detergent for our hand washable items, books, games, and more.

And after dinner when the sun had set we simply moved to the fireplace for a cozy evening. We would most definitely stay here again.

Th Sea Quest is an outstanding Inn on a beautiful setting overlooking the Oregon Coast . The Inn is warm,inviting,comfortable, clean,cozy and casual-everything we were hoping for. You walk right out your bedroom door onto a bluff and down to the beach. AND-the Inn keeper, Narina, is an exceptional host as well as a fabulous gourmet cook and baker-she made our stay memorable with her kind attention to every detail-A GREAT find on the Oregon coast

We were very surprised when we arrived. If you want total isolation, this is the place - seven very long, lonely miles south of Yachats (which itself is a quaint, neat little town – stay IN town if possible). Although we appreciate relaxation and solitude, this bordered on creepy. The land and beach are beautiful, but the structure itself is in disrepair and the property is for sale. Grown up weeds in yard and around driveway. Seems like it had long passed its hey-day - somewhat sad and run-down feeling. Overall, the inn was very cluttered. Internal water filters not working well, and even though we understood that this is a beach property on well water, sink water was disturbingly salty when brushing teeth. The sign said "no vacancy" but we were the ONLY guests. There was someone else there (aside from the innkeeper), but he appeared to be a permanent or semi-permanent resident, not a regular guest. Innkeeper was efficient and mostly pleasant, except when she seemed a bit annoyed when we told her we couldn’t stay for breakfast b/c of our flight schedule. Internet photos are deceptive. Steps to the beach were broken and basically non-existent and were dangerous to crawl down - and the beauty of the isolated beach is one of the only positive features of the property. Adirondack chairs were broken. Patio off our room had rusty furniture and cluttery - not inviting. However, there was a respectable offering of snacks and beverages. Overall, very disappointing for the price and wished we had stayed in Yachats proper.

  • Liked — the beach - natural property adjacent to the building

The web showed this to be on a windswept beach, and seemingly modern.
But how wonderful was the reality for us. Wild and deserted, like a cabin in Big Sur, for sure.
We loved the old wood, the driftwood out your door, the homey atmosphere, though it was only built I gather ten years ago, after having been before a family home, and it feels like that.
We loved this place. Every room (we saw others) has a great view of the ocean.
The innkeeper, Nerelle, is a perfect sensation, modest, attractive, hardworking, does yoga and meditates.
She makes whatever you want for breakfast, even non-fat milk, egg-whites, omelettes, porridge, whatever. She stops at nothing to make your stay perfect.
We wished we could have stayed a week. A good fire upstairs, a comfy wide room with big windows. We just loved this place.
Easy to find, just off the highway, but quite secluded.

I've done quite a bit of touring through Europe, Asia, and the U.S. It's rare to come across a place so unique that it makes an indelible impression, and so welcoming that you know you must go back to that place even if it's 3000 miles away.

Sea Quest Inn is one of those places.

1) the setting is absolutely spectacular. I was there in late November. I can only imagine (for now) what it would be like here when the sun is shining and the temperature is warm. I did a short run south along 101 and back, and the scenery was so beautiful that the hills felt flat.

Cape Perpetua SP was beautiful. The rough coast (don't miss Devil's Churn), forest walks, and the climb up to the overlook were amazing.

The Dunes to the south, and the town of Florence certainly deserve a whole day, if not more time. The Dunes were amazing and unique compared to other parts of the west coast. Florence has a very cute old town with nice shops, and much better restaurants than Yachats. (Don't be misled by the strip malls on the main route...the old town is worth a visit.)

2) The Sea Quest Inn itself is totally unique. This is not your stream-lined/elegant destination. To the contrary, the decor could be overwhelming, and may not be to everyone's taste. The work tchotchke (see definition below) comes to mind. Another way to say it is that there is not much empty space. Well, if you want clean, white surfaces then this is not your place. Come here if you want a very warm, inviting, comfortable place to relax, and to use as a base to explore the beautiful Oregon coast.

Other things that have been mentioned in other reviews:
- no tv, but I think that's a good thing
- internet access provided at one computer, along w/ printer
- wifi worked well
- small fridge available/shared
- plenty of indoor/outdoor games, etc provided
- very nice bathrooms
- plenty of extras available (teas, excellent hot chocolate, coffee, cheese and crackers, etc.). Homemade pastries, cookies....all you could want.

3) The Innkeeper, Nerina, is great. She is a total professional, with all the advice you need and very friendly. We were lucky to have her to ourselves much of our stay. I probably shouldn't say this part, but since we were the only only guests our last morning she made us custom omelettes (instead of what she had planned out), and actually knew us well enough by then that she only needed to confirm our preferred ingredients. I am somewhat known as a food snob, and not really a big breakfast person, yet Nerina's breakfasts impressed me completely. She knows her way around a kitchen, for sure, and her presentation is amazing, in particular the fruit salad tower, which I photo'd for future reference.

Definition of tchotchke:
Main Entry: tchotch·ke
Pronunciation: \ˈchäch-kə, ˈtsäts-\
Function: noun
Etymology: Yiddish tshatshke trinket, from obsolete Polish czaczko

We just got back from a 3 week, 8 state, 7000 kilometre road trip, and the Seaquest B&B was our favourite stay during the trip.

The weather was stormy and wet, but the Seaquest was cosy inside and standing out on the coast and watching the breakers and the surf was amazing.

I can't think of a negative thing to say. The breakfasts were great, the common areas were comfy, the views were outstanding. They've thought of everything.
