The Awtrey House
Ranked #1 of 2 Nehalem B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 5, 2013

When I saw the bed and breakfast preview on their website I was very excited to see it in person and it lived up to my expectations. This place is designed by a very well renowned architecture firm from Seattle. The spaces inside are designed with keeping in mind the connection with nature and at no point you are dissappointed. The location is a close to the Nehalem beach, just up the road from where you have these great vistas of the ocean.
The host was very friendly and very welcoming. He showed us our room and made us comfortable. He was very gracious to offer us a house tour and I can say it was straight out of an Architecture Digest magazine.
The room was modern and the wooden floors and roofing gave it a warm feel. The room opned out to an outdoor pation with reclining chairs and of course a beautiful view of the coastline. There was a kingsize bed with crisp linen, a flat screen TV with a DVD player, nespresso machine, small fridge and a fireplace as well. The bath had a small shower and there was an soaking tub in-between the vanity and the bedroom. This could be made private by closing the shutters. Everything was spotless. The soaps and bath products were from Lush.
Upon request the host gave us creamer for our coffee the next morning. He asked us what time would we like to have our breakfast which was very accomodating of him. The breakfast was an omelette with smoked salmon, cream cheese and chives, plate of fruit and coffee, tea, juice. He had freshly baked the bread at home. It was delicious!
it was one of the best bed and breakfast experiences ever! When it was time to say good bye, he brought a pack of home made chocolate chip cookies for us. That was a sweet gesture!
Overall an experience unparallel!

The Awtrey House IS perfect. My beau and I stayed there two weeks ago, and we were the second couple that has stayed there and gotten engaged. We know there will be many more. Peggy was away, but Dennis was the ideal host. We particularly liked the crab quiche, but all three breakfasts we had during our stay were stellar. The small touches were all perfect without being too much. Just as others have said before me, everything here is just as it should be. Combined with the magnificent view, it was pure heaven.

This bed and breakfast with two guest rooms is the place to go if you like four to five star style accommodations. Very little lodging of any kind on the Oregon Coast comes close to this standard, Awtrey house does, with well appointed, if small, rooms that have patios looking out over the Manzanita beach. Lovely breakfasts, very friendly hosts.

I'll echo the previous reviewers' comments; so much has akready been said! Although we had never met Peggy and Dennis previously, we felt more like we were long-time friends of theirs, coming over for a visit; not B&B guests. The selection of design and construction materials - concrete, natural woods and glass - seems so in keeping with the terrain, and takes maximum advantage of the extraordinary views. A wonderful getaway spot for couples!

What else can you say? This place has no flaws. Really, it doesn't. The room is beautifully furnished, the view might be one of the most beautiful in the world, and the food is superb. In addition, the proprietors take a very protean approach to hosting their guests, striking a perfect balance between socializing and privacy. Whether you need help finding a local restaurant, purchasing a special gift to take home or want some tips on finding the location of a good hiking trail, Dennis and Peggy are there to help. Want to have Dennis entertain you with stories of his NBA playing days, no problem. Just need some time alone? They can accommodate that too. Also, breakfast hours can be made flexible, which is important for someone like me who is not a "morning person." Like I said, the food is great, especially the crab quiche! Sometimes oysters are also available and can be turned into a delicious "Hangtown Fry."

Can't give this place a higher recommendation.....a great value and an experience you will not forget!

My wife and I stayed here for our 8th anniversary weekend and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Our room had an absolutely stunning vantage point over the ocean and the hospitality and breakfasts provided by the Awtreys were exceptional. Truly a great weekend; we would recommend The Awtrey House to anyone.

Wake up to a spectacular view in an unbelievably exquisite setting and you have the Awtrey House. Everything is comfortably appointed and visitors are made to feel welcome and appreciated. By the time your stay is complete you wish you could move in with your gracious hosts Peggy and Dennis Awtrey. Treat yourself to the ultimate bed and breakfast and stay there at least once. It should be on a "bucket list"
