The Augusta Rose Bed and Breakfast was built in 1891 as a single family home. It is located on a corner lot surrounded by a neighborhood of beautiful old homes. The house itself is a Queen Anne style Victorian with a turret and two small balconies. It features a large stained glass window in the staircase landing and smaller stained glass windows in the living and dining rooms. The woodwork in the main floor is ornate and well preserved. In the summertime, the wraparound front porch is the most popular "room" in the house. It reflects a slower, more gracious time, when neighbors walking by would (and still do) stop for a minute to chat. The second floor of the house is dedicated only to the Bed & Breakfast. It has four guest rooms, five bathrooms and two sitting rooms. The bedroom furnishings are primarily family heirlooms.
Reminiscent of a sun-drenched cottage on the Jersey shore, this is the most private of the rooms. The quiet greens and soft beige make it a favorite of newlyweds. It contains a king size bed, a dresser, a TV and a desk. It features a slanted ceiling and has an attached bath with a tub/shower. Wireless internet access available.
The bold burgundy and dark green wallpaper and the hunting scenes on the walls conjure up dreams of grand English manor houses with rooms such as this - those found in the fictional house Pemberley in 'Pride and Prejudice'. There is one queen size bed, a desk and dresser. The attached bath features a European style walk-in shower. Wireless internet access available.
Latourelle is named for a waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. It is a small waterfall compared to many of the others and is almost hidden. But the view and the pristine splendor is worth the extra time. Like the waterfall, the room is an almost hidden treasure. The restful earth tones, queen size iron bed and wonderful old rocking chair are sure to ease the worries of the day and refresh your spirit. The attached bath has a tub/shower. Wireless internet access available.
The antique oak dresser and queen bed and the old, white, twin iron bedstead tell of a room that has enjoyed the presence of many families. It is the largest of the rooms, with space for a rollaway as well. The white eyelet, blue roses and the black and white photos developed from glass plate negatives from a long-ago studio will remind you of Grandma's house. The beautiful hardwood floor is original to the house. The private bath for this room is a few short steps down the hall. Wireless internet access available.

Our one night stay at the Augusta Rose was comfortable and pleasant. Ed and Mary greeted us on our arrival and assisted us as we settled in. The Pemberly room and bath with guest bath robes was nicely furnished and perfect for our short visit. This large house is filled with beautiful vintage furniture with some interesting stories. Mary and Ed were wonderful hosts and breakfast was delicious. Our son and his girlfriend were able to join us for breakfast at a modest fee. A sign in the lobby as you enter says something like "Enter as strangers and leave as friends." We certainly felt that was true. We will certainly stay here again when we visit Napoleon.

Lovely place to stay! Ed & Mary were very friendly, and the place was clean and beautiful. There were 3 guests the night I stayed, each of us in separate rooms, and I could not hear either of the other 2. Breakfast was sausage & apples with a puff pancake, breakfast cookies, and fruit. In addition to the bedrooms, there is a shared sitting room with games, a refrigerator & a microwave. This was my second stay in a B&B and it was all more than I was expecting.

I stayed one night in the Pemberley room at the August Rose B&B and was very happy with the room and the service. Mr & Mrs Hoeffel were very nice and accomodating.

My stay at the Augusta Rose B&B was my first ever at a Bed and Breakfast. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed metting and getting to know the owners and enjoyed our stay in a nice room in an older but well-maintained home. My breakfast was not my most favorite part of my stay (an egg and vegetables caserole), but overall, it was a good experience.
