This bed and breakfast is the best I have ever experienced. Unfortunately, we were not able to stay there as they were full, but our best friends were there and the hostel asked us to come to breakfast out of the goodness of her heart. The house is very welcoming and beautifully decorated. The grounds are equally lovely. There is good parking and all the sights are close by. I would recommend this property to anyone, anytime!!

Room Tip: The house has three lovely rooms each with a bathroom. Each bedroom has a queen bed. I can't c...

I stayed at Charles Nelson Guest House last week while traveling for business. I was very impressed by how well the owners cover all of the little details. The whole place is very nicely done, from the perfectly done garden to the comfortable common spaces.
My room (Nancy's room) was bright and cheerful in the afternoon sun when I checked in. Lots of interesting vintage decor from the 20's-40's to look at and spotlessly clean! It was nice and quiet with a comfortable bed. I slept well.
Breakfast was delicious and well presented-individual crustless quiches, ham, blueberry scones, fruit, and potatoes along with a nice selection of juices. Ginger was very friendly and took time to chat with me even while she was trying to get breakfast on the table,.
Overall a great stay! Next time, I hope I make time to walk down to the beach, which is right across the street!

We spontaneously decided to stay at the Charles Nelson Guest House last weekend in Ocean Park, Wa. What a special place! Ginger, the proprietor, was incredibly gracious in making our stay "over the top" special. The setting along Willapa Bay, the beautiful house and grounds, and spectacular breakfasts were beyond our expectation. We will definitely visit this B & B again.

Room Tip: All three rooms are quiet and in a pretty setting. Elsa's room has a nice view of Willapa Bay.

We were looking for a comfortable, welcoming, clean, quiet, and restful place to "get away" for a couple days. We definitely found it here! We got a few bonuses in the deal too. Ginger's gourmet breakfasts were out of this world! She gave us some excellent suggestions of where to go and places to see. The home was beautifully decorated, and though we were there in the dead of winter, I enjoyed the yard and landscaping ideas. I hope we can return in the summer to see the yard in it's full glory.

Great experience here, beautifully appointed rooms, and just the right amount of attention from the hosts -- not too cloying but they were always around if you needed anything. The breakfasts were outstanding and included several fresh juices, fresh fruit, eggs, scones one day, blueberry waffles another, we even had oysters, a local specialty. Excellent.

The location is perfect,close enough to shopping and restaurants and a fantastical wildlife preserve. It's even close to Long Beach, but it partakes of none of Long Beach's tackiness. We tried some of the local restaurants, and they were good, but they don't compare to Ginger's cooking. You won't go away hungry after breakfast, but more importantly, you may go away inspired. I grew up among oyster fields, and her take on fried oysters brought back wonderful childhood memories. But that's just one of many takes on breakfast she has. We stayed three nights and had different treats each morning. The accommodations deserve mention as well - the rooms are well laid-out, the dining area and living room are inviting, the book and dvd collections are extensive. A lot of thought has gone into this place.

Room Tip: for a view of the bay, choose the front. For a bit more quiet, choose the back.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing stay at this B&B. It was clean, comfortable and the hosts were very welcoming. Ginger made us delicious breakfasts and by special order, fried up some fresh local oysters for us and made her famous salmon hash. She also made a scrumptious peach cobbler one night which was great to have after a long day at the Kite Festival. We also had a view of the moonlit bay from our room and enjoyed our walks through the garden. The bed was very comfortable and the bedroom and bathroom were both spacious. It was nice staying on the Oysterville side of the Long Beach peninsula to avoid the noise and traffic from the crowds that were visiting the kite festival. We also had interesting talks with the other guests. Make sure you eat dinner at Jimella and Nanci's market café! It was splendid food. We will come back to this B&B!

Room Tip: We had the room at the end of the hall--with the best view of Willapa Bay.
