The B&B was great...wonderful backyard with hammocks, hot tub, driftwood bench, and beautiful flowers! There were fresh flowers in our room, bathroom, and scattered among the beautiful inn. The breakfast was divine-carmalized fresh pineapple with cream, egg fritatta, potatoes, and sticky buns. Bill and Susie were flexible with our schedule, providing us a hearty breakfast for an early morning hike. They recommended the Depot restaurant for dinner, one of the best meals we have had. We hope to come back, we felt at home!

Room Tip: We picked the Dunes room. It was the best because it was the only room with a jetted bath tub, and a back entrance into the room.

Susie and Bill are the penultimate hosts. Their property is well appointed and beautifully situated on the coast. The short walk to the shore through their delightful garden and pathway through the gorse to "the longest beach in the world" was a pleasure. Now, as to breakfast---my goodness - we didn't need to eat another thing all day. Simply delicious!

Nice location and environment though not right next to the beach per se. The hosts clearly know how to provide excellent service. The rooms are very cute, the beds great (we spent one night each in two different rooms) and the breakfasts were top of the line.

My wife and I have been going to Bed and Breakfasts for twelve years. Boreas was one of our first, and it is the only one we've gone back to. We've tried a lot of others - but always end up going back to Boreas. We've been going there as often as we can afford and fit into our life since.

The inn is wonderful. It has all the luxurious amenities you hope for. Pillow-soft feather beds with high quality sheets, beautiful robes, a fresh tray of brownies, a massive jar of pistachios for snacking, a beautiful hot-tub looking out to the ocean. But it's also very relaxed and comfortable. (Some fancy B&Bs feel stuffy, like you are afraid to really sit down and just be.)

The location - the long beach peninsula - is wonderful. Long Beach is a much less commercialized beach town. It's small and fun. But you'll be surprised to find a shocking number of exceptional restaurants. I don't know if chefs retire to the peninsula or what, but it's amazing. The beach is beautiful - and best of all - you can drive on it.

But most importantly, the innkeepers, are perfect. Bill & Susie have mastered the art of hospitality. They know when to be present and attending to your needs, and when to make themselves scarce. They cook the best breakfast we've ever had, with care for every ingredient. They are fun, and friendly, knowledgable and treat us like long-lost well-loved relatives.

If you haven't tried Boreas, you should. It's well worth the cost and the drive. It's an amazing place with amazing people.

Room Tip: Call ahead.
