A traditional farmhouse inn with water views.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this 1886 inn transports guests back to a time when boats were the only way to reach such lodgings on Willipa Bay. The atmosphere is laid-back, with a comfy fireplace room for playing board games, reading or simply napping by the open flames. This is a good alternative to the typical resort escape. It is a place where natural beauty outweighs the benefits of data ports and an on-site fitness center. The hotel’s 18 guest rooms are living museums, furnished with late 19th-century antiques. You won’t find TVs or telephones here. The four bathrooms are all shared. Some rooms offer views of pretty Willapa Bay. Other rooms overlook the parking lot or glimpses of the Pacific Ocean. Some of the area’s best clamming is right outside the front door.
