“Can't wait to go back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

I LOVE this B&B. It's the perfect place to get away and relax. The view is spectacular and you are literally right on the beach! I've stayed here a few times and I can't wait to go back again. It's a home away from home with comfortable, clean and lovely accommodations. You will NOT be disappointed!

While this is titled as a B*B, it is not your typical one. Only 2 units that are like efficiency apartments. Bed, Bath & livingroom/kitchenette with microwave, coffee, tea, plates & utensils available.
Barbara, the owner, is a wonder lady, who walks you through everything upon arrival.
Access to beach is a quick flight of stairs, a gravel path & then a driftwood makeshift stairs (actual building of stairs on public beach is prohibitied so the owners use the driftwood to finish the last few steps). Not accessible for those that are not steady on their feet or who require assistance with stairs so be warned!
Views from deck are AMAZING! Situated right on cliff with views of the ocen & the river outlet, would be perfect for those that want to rent or bring kayaks. Beach is wonderfully sandy.
Bed is comfortable, bathroom has deep tub. Appliances all servicable.
Barbara provides an in room breakfast if you choose (croissants, scones, fresh organic fruit, cream/milk, OJ and water.

All in all, this would be a wonderful place to come for a few days of solitude on the beach or as a get away. If you are looking for high end luxury or typical B&B with hot breakfast, this is not the place. But if you enjoy a simple continental breakfast at your leisure and don't want to have to sit at a communal table and make small talk, then this is perfect.

Large decks to take advantage of sunset, sunrise. Large sliders to get ocean breezes or listen to the waves crashing to the shore. There is a fireplace in bedroom, but its for ambience only (no heat, electric flames only.

Nice little find for our quick overnight trip down the coast.

Room Tip: Ask for the Blue room, you have windows on three views (bedroom, sideview (river) & living area...

Hard to decide which was the best part of this location - but the view has it! Absolutely STUNNING vista over Pelican Bay. We were actually fortunate enough to see wildlife in the ocean!! (seal or whale-couldn't tell-not enough experience)
The room was quiet, clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Hosts Barbara and Gary were able to tell us lots of info about the area, i.e. restaurants, attractions, wildlife, redwood forests and things to find on the beach. Easy walk to the ever changing ocean. Accommodations were clean and well maintained. Continental breakfast was perfect to enjoy while watching the waves from our room. The privacy was much enjoyed. (I don't like eating breakfast with strangers in my bathrobe) We will definitely stay in this place again!

Beautiful setting with a fantastic ocean view. You are very close to the beach....just out your door and down the deck stairs and then down the beach path (bit precarious if you are not steady on your feet) and beach staircase. Barbara showed us everything we needed to know about our little studio (living room with fridge and microwave, etc., bedroom and bath). We were very cozy and comfy, and it was clean. The decor is not the latest and we could hear a bit of noise from the next studio but nothing much and we were not bothered by it. The view and location overrides all. We were even invited to join in on a beach campfire. Wonderful sunset and sunrise. We saw an otter too!

We keep coming back because of easy access to the mouth of the Winchuck River and Pacific Ocean. Then there are the gracious hosts who do whatever they can to make us comfortable. The rooms are fresh and clean with excellent bedding. We like to bird and have views of kingfishers, cormorants, osprey, hummingbirds etc.. We have seen otters playing close by in the river. There are many adventures, restaurants, and wonderful beaches near by. Lowden's is a great place to unwind and enjoy nature.

Room Tip: Choose the room on the up river end of the house.

Wow, I couldn't disagree more with the last reviewer, who found it "smelly." We loved this B&B from top to bottom and in between, and didn't find it at all smelly! It was very clean and fresh-smelling, actually. We also had a night of our honeymoon here, and we wanted to stay a week, we loved it so much. The views of the river AND the ocean were amazing, our unit was spacious, complete with a bathroom with two sinks and a deep tub for soaking, a fireplace in the huge bedroom, a comfy bed, a deck, storage places, games, movies on a bazillion disks, and every convenience we could dream up and poke around looking for. Our host and hostess were the friendliest and most accommodating couple imaginable. We found them delightful to talk to, and could easily imagine being friends with them if we lived in the area. Our walk to the beach was a great adventure; we actually enjoyed the challenge of the downward climb (on stairs that were not at all rickety) and the driftwood scramble. In lieu of breakfast being served (Our hosts needed to be up and out early the following day, and we arrived late without a reservation), we were given a break on the nightly cost, which we thought was very fair. We hated to leave this wonderful location, and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Because there are only two apartments, reservations are a must; we were lucky that they had had a cancellation that evening and had our unit available. It was "meant to be."

I wanted to like this place-- especially since the couple who runs it are clearly so nice. But this place was just not up to par. First of all, our room smelled. Like dog, probably, maybe cat. You'd think since its only doors are big sliders that it could easily be aired out (the owners have a couple dogs-- not sure if they are where the smell came from). When we stayed it was pretty cold and foggy, so we couldn't air it out.

And the furnishings are VERY dated. Surprisingly so. It felt like staying in a great aunt's basement. Complete with flies and very spotty TV/cable reception. We ended up watching something on our computer, because the wifi was more reliable than the tv.

It was right on the beach, but you had to climb down some pretty dilapidated steps, through an overgrown path (that seems like it would be pretty simple to trim back, if they took the time), and then across some huge pieces of driftwood. We also had hoped for a little more privacy. Since two rooms share the same deck, even though we had a nice view, we had to keep the curtains closed for privacy. Not as romantic on our honeymoon as we had hoped.

Upside- free wifi.
