A really relaxing place

5 on November 11, 2014

We had two options: a room with a fantastic view of the ocean, or a suite with bedroom and living/dining area with kitchenette. We opted for the suite, but both were modern, very clean, and in a peaceful location, in spite of other homes nearby. The innkeepers are friendly and the breakfast great.

Great two nights on the coast.

We stayed in the suite and took advantage of the facilities for dinner. We enjoyed walking at cape Pestua and on the dunes ,seashore. The website is accurate in the description. Penny and David were very helpful.

This charming B&B was a hidden gem. The owners directed us to some unique viewpoints with driving instructions. They warmly welcomed us into their home and served us a a traditional pioneer style breakfast. We would highly recommend this place.

Wonderful Place!

This is a basic, no frills B&B. It was a good value for us as it served our purpose to stay on the coast and not spend a lot of money. Pleasantly surprised to have a suite with a microwave, refrigerator and separate sitting room from the bedroom. The innkeepers were very nice and informational. Breakfast was French toast, fruit and microwaved bacon...not gourmet if that is what you are looking for. Not much in this town, but we knew that from other posts and had dinner in Newport before we arrived here.

An unexpectedly fun experience

All you could ask for in a B&B. A family home with private rooms, great breakfast, information and guidance on the area. We enjoyed 2 very comfortable nights.

A perfect retreat!

My family of three had a wonderful 3-day stay at Resting On The Rock B&B. Facilities are super clean and comfortable. The hosts are accommodating and we left feeling like we had made friends. Short walk to a great beach with active tide pools and indeed it does have seals on rocks as well. Short distance to Beaver Creek (Ona Park) where we had a marvelous experience with a guided kayak tour. Short drive to Hatfield Marine Ctr. I cannot think of anything negative to say in regards to our accommodations at all! If you get a chance - go!

Innkeeper Response
Yes, Beaver Creek has been one of our favorite paddle for many years. We're glad you enjoyed your stay.

Fantastic accommodations and hosts

Penny is a gracious hostess, sharing her home, her crafts, and her family with guests. My daughter and I booked the sunset room and enjoyed watching the skies darken over the Pacific. The room was spacious with extras like movies, books, a private bath, and plenty of pillows. We scheduled our breakfast time and were called down by beautiful music to blueberry French toast with wild berries from the yard. Penny's art is amazing and she keeps a beautiful home. For more space, the other room includes a kitchenette and sitting room. The grounds are also beautiful with all kinds of birds gathering at feeders. I wish we had planned to stay more than one night. Penny goes the extra mike. She even mailed my daughter's phone charger to our home address. Knowing I was a scrapbooker, she also supplied brochures and beautiful cards to take with us. I would change a thing. It was fabulous.
