The word "retreat" is true. This is a beautifully appointed quiet place to commune with nature. No TV. Lots of games and puzzles if you wish to use them. And we had a doe and fawn visit every day. The bird life and watching the...More

Next to the water. Full of interesting art. Very clean. 3 bedrooms in main house plus a cottage. Lots of wildlife. Really enjoyed our stay. Had an evening fire pit. Full kitchen. There’s a dock to nowhere for looking at the scenery.

Thanks for your comments. I like that..."a dock to nowhere..." Years ago, they used to call the Astoria/Megler bridge that crosses the Columbia River from Oregon to Washington, "the bridge to nowhere." How wrong they were!

China Beach Retreat is exactly that, a retreat from the hustling, bustling world. With expansive views of Bakers Bay and the mouth of the Columbia River, hydrotherapy, air-jet tubs in all rooms, the property More is designed for relaxation. The main house has three guest rooms and the separate, stand-alone Audubon Cottage is appropriate for one couple. The house was built in 1908 and has floor-to-ceiling windows in the common area, showcasing a view of the Ilwaco fishing fleet coming and going. Wildlife is abundant--deer visit the yard frequently and Bakers Bay is teeming with waterfowl of many kinds. Great restaurants, pubs, museums and state parks are all within easy driving distance. Astoria, Oregon is just one-half hour away. No matter what the weather is doing, the view at China Beach Retreat captivates. Less
