About

China Beach Retreat is nestled in a small cove between the Port of Ilwaco and Fort Canby State Park. Its serene setting make it the perfect place to unwind and leave the trappings of hectic modern living behind. Time seems to stand still, or at least beat to a different rhythm as you watch wild waterfowl careen above the estuary. It is the ultimate getaway, with not a neighbor in sight. There are antique furnishings throughout and each room features a spa tub and a stunning view of Bakers Bay and the mouth of The Columbia River. Guests enjoy a sumptuous breakfast at the award winning Shelburne Inn, just a 5-minute drive away. Check-in is at The Shelburne Inn.

Great weekend

5 on April 21, 2013

We enjoyed our stay, the people sharing the house (though there is plenty of room to be seperate if you don't want to socialize), and the food. The deal we bought from livingsocial made this a steal - well worth it!

New Year's Eve Weekend China Beach Retreat

The Audubon cottage is exceptional; a magnificent experience. The Inn lost our New Year's Eve dinner reservation; disappointing. The breakfast at the Inn is excellent.


A Peaceful Retreat

This was my wifes first experience at a B&B. The China Beach facility is a very peaceful and relaxing place to stay with wonderful views of the water from every room. The house is remotely located from the main facility; The Shelburne Inn. So the staff must travel 2 miles to the house to attend to any requests. The staff was very responsive; even late in the evening. We will be returning to rent the entire house for a family restreat in the near future.


serenity sublime

We have stayed here many times over the past few years. Each time brings a renewal, a reconnection with nature. Totally quiet other than the sounds of nature. Extraordinary craftsmanship in all of the rooms, particularly the new Audobon cottage. We love that they have used local craftsmen for the woodworking and handmade tiles. Activities: hiking, kayaking, historical exploration (end of the Lewis and Clark trail,) enjoying the peace and a good book.


Awesome Audobon Cottage!!

My husband and I spent our 15th anniversary here and I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience! The craftsmanship of the Cottage was amazing! The interior was simple luxury and oh so private and peaceful! Breakfasts at the Shelburne sublime! This B&B is a must for your next romantic getaway!
