If you want to "get away from it all", this is the place. Located about 4 miles up a paved country road from Skamokawa, this neat-as-a-pin facility offers wonderful breakfasts served up by the most gracious hosts we've encountered in our 2 dozen b & b stays. The settiing itself optimizes relaxation: A working farm with no cell phone service (you can use the inn's phone for some calls) and no TV. WiFi is available if you can't totally let go. The only noise you're likely to hear is a bugling elk or a howling coyote . And if you really need a little adventure, ask Don or Kitty to put you in touch with Andrew at Columbia River Kayaking. A tip for light packers: Each room has a hairdryer. For efficient drivers: Coming east from Astoria, a left turn on Ingalls Road and another left on Middle Valley will save you going in to Skamokawa.
