We were thrilled to find such a perfect spot for our overnight stay in Vernonia. The room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Julie, the host, was friendly, accommodating but not intrusive. We look forward to staying again on our next trip through.

Second time staying at this lovely house with great hosts. Everything we needed with so many great decorative touches - really made us feel at home. And breakfast was awesome. We'll be staying again next time we're anywhere in the area. Thanks Julie!

My toddler son and I stayed at this inn during an overnight adventures on the Banks-Vernonia trail. The house is located a quick walk from downtown, where there are a few restaurants/bars. Our room was very modern, with wood floors, ensuite bathroom, and a fun theme/decorating. They have room for four guest parties, but it felt like we were the only ones, even on a busy night. Best of all our hosts were super kind at all times: playing with my son, cooking a gourmet breakfast, and even helping get us back to town when a rainstorm hit. I generally don't like small town B&B's, but I strongly recommend this one, especially if you are biking/running the trail.

Loved most everything about this place. We had the downstairs room (600 sq ft) that included a full kitchen, a room with two recliners, tv and a daybed/trundle bed and a bedroom. We also had a private entrance which was nice. Plenty of towels, hot water with good pressure. Kitchen had all you needed for the stay including a small dining table. The only two things that kept me from giving it a 5 was the mattress cover that sounded/felt somewhat plastic-like and made me sweat. I had to put down a towel so I could sleep. Also, if you are a light sleeper, there was a lot of floor squeaks from upstairs right above the bed that kept waking me up. Didn't bother my hubby at all. (Lucky guy!) Julie was kind enough to let us park our vehicle before check in in the driveway and ride our bikes from there. Breakfast was amazing and worth the money. Julie is a sweetie to work with and I'd stay again for sure. Can't go wrong here.

I am so sorry about the mattress cover, I have replaced them to be better fitting. If I would have known I would have come down and fixed that for you. As far as the squeaky floors, now that we are aware that that can bother some people we try to be in bed by 10. We hope you will give us another chance to give you a five star stay.

Owner was a pleasure to work with, very accommodating and nice. We stayed in "The Bees Nees" room. Everything we needed for a 3 night stay. Nice little common area with a keurig and snacks and fridge. Highly recommend!
