Mt. Emily Ranch Bed and Breakfast

99847 So Bank Chetco River Rd , Brookings, OR 97415 USA (Show map)


Mt. Emily Ranch Bed & Breakfast is a fabulous Custom Log Home on 135 acres overlooking the beautiful Chetco River Valley. Our acreage includes gorgeous woodlands, creeks and a small pond. Situated 5 1/2 miles up the South Bank of the Chetco, it affords wonderful views of the river valley and Mt. Emily; we enjoy warmer temperatures located above the fog line. The spacious Log Home provides comfortable living spaces and fun activities for all our guests. Staying on a working ranch offers some unique advantages - organic produce is readily available in season; apples, peaches, berries and plums from the orchard; vegetables from the garden; eggs from our own chickens and fresh farm raised beef. Imagine waking up to birds singing, wildlife wandering through the pasture, the smell of fresh bread baking, and the amazing view of the Chetco River Valley just outside your window.

Beautiful, comfortable, as good as it gets!!

4.0 on August 25, 2015

We were in awe of this beautiful B&B. Very spacious, private, super clean, and comfortable. Carol the innkeeper was amazing. She cooks, cleans, takes care of pets/animals (handles stray cows!), and does everything. This is the best B&B we've ever been to. I would've rated it 5 bars for Outstanding on everything but this site would only let me rate to 4 bars (Exceeded my expectations). We will definitely return someday.

Thank you so much! I enjoyed your visit and I hope you can come back again.

Surprising out-of-the-way find

3.8 on June 11, 2015

We are a Canadian couple who travel once a year with a son who lives in California and were recently exploring Oregon for 10 days. We found Mt. Emily on-line and thought it might be a good one-night stop. That it was. Prospective guests should not be deterred by the twisty road up. The B and B is in a beautiful pastoral setting; Carol is a gracious, helpful hostess; rooms are very spacious; and Belgian waffles were a great send-off for the day. We would recommend Mt. St. Emily to those who look for special B and B experiences. The Nicki Family

Good stop for family

Our party of four from Thailand includes my husband and our two daughters. We wanted to find a good stop between Eureka and Portland and this is it. The property is about 15 minutes away from Brookings. It sits on top of a hill with a nice view. Carol's house is just beautiful. The room is large with a small separate bedroom for our two girls. The bed is very comfortable. Our kids enjoy playing with Zeena, Carol's Golden Retriever, as well as the horses and the cows on the property. We love her home-made breakfast, eggs and great hash brown, which we can't find in a hotel. We just had a little trouble finding her place, using Garmin. It's actually listed on Google map, but we didn't have a signal at that time.

Thank you, I enjoyed visiting with you - and Xena enjoyed playing with your children :)

Outstanding experience at Mt.Emily Ranch

4.4 on April 24, 2015

My husband and I had a great experience staying and dining at Mt. Emily Ranch. We had a delicious dinner of grilled pork chops, salad, roasted vegetables and hr awarding winning apple pie. The only thing that could have made the experience even better as a longer visit and sunshine rather than the heavy rain we had. We are planning to return to this lovely property!

Very much enjoyed my stay. The breakfast was great and homemade including the English Muffin Bread under the Eggs Benedict and the Hollandaise Sauce.

Fantastic Food

Carol is an amazing cook and the fresh meat and produce was wonderful. Room was large, clean and comfortable. Nice view. Honestly, we were a little thrown off by the praying at dinner and many religious books in the room, but it was fine and we respected her faith. She may have been a little uncomfortable with a gay couple, which might be why she did not engage in any much casual conversation during dining. We made sure to talk about farming a lot to keep it going. With all that being said, she was always polite and we would certainly return.

A Cozy Portland to SF Road Trip Stop

4.8 on October 10, 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Mt. Emily Ranch during our anniversary road trip from Portland and San Francisco. It was the perfect halfway point along our route. This was the first time we had stayed at a B&B so we didn't really know what to expect, but Carol made us feel immediately at home with our own private area on the 2nd floor (we were the only guests). The room and bathroom were spotless and had some much room to accompany the expansive views of her ranch and the Chetco River Valley. We were woken up to the smell of homemade waffles and bacon in the morning - which, we highly recommend. The antique waffle iron that she uses just solidifies that this is a cozy B&B. Overall, everything was great - perfect for our trip. The only negative was that it was a bit far from town. However, if you are staying for more than one night or have some time the next day, definitely stay awhile, and explore the ranch or just read a book while overlooking the amazing views.

An unexpectedly excellent stay

We were travelling down the west coast from Seattle to San Francisco and had stayed in some pretty spectacular hotels. We needed to make a stop in this region but couldn't find a suitable hotel similar in quality to the previous ones. We stumbled across Mount Emily Ranch and booked it with some trepidation as we very rarely stay in a bed and breakfast. We really needn't have worried! The accommodation is stunning and the setting amazing! The food was mainly home reared and grown and tasted wonderful. The other couple staying were great company so much so we will keep in touch with them. We intended to make an early departure but ended up dragging ourselves away at midday. Carol is a fabulous hostess, judging how much attention you need impeccably. In our opinion if you are in this region it is a fabulous place to stay.

Real "country" while near the coast!

I must admit that my husband and I were a bit leery as we approached this B&B. Once we turned off the main road, we followed a short gravel road through two metal gates (cattle security?) at the press of roadside buttons. One step inside this BEAUTIFUL home, however, any hesitations about our stay vanished. The home is exquisitely built and has a view of the mountains and part of the Chetco that invites you to sit outside with a good book and NOT read! The rooms are huge (!), totally private, and decorated beautifully. Roaming and sitting space allowed in this B&B are amazing. Loved the moo of the cows across the road, the deer mingling with the cows, and many birds! Carol is a hard worker and gracious, warm hostess. We will definitely return.

A quaint place in the mountains!

We had a short but beautiful stay. The room (green room) was very clean and spacious. The house has a warm feel and for a moment you may think you are visiting an old friend's house. We got to meet Fuzzy (the cat), the golden retriever as well as one of the cows with her calf. Thank you Carol for a wonderful breakfast and your effort to accommodate our request for a light meal!
