We were only in Astoria for a quick one night getaway, but really enjoyed our stay at the Rose River Inn. The house is what you might expect of a historic B&B: a bit funky, historical, and charming. Don't expect 5 star amenities - this house has quirks because it is old and full of character, but that's why you seek out a B&B! The proprietors were so nice, accommodating, and excellent hosts. Breakfast was fantastic: fruit bowl with yogurt and granola, a baked egg/veggie frittata, endless coffee. I really enjoyed having hot tea when I got in before bed. I would stay again.
My wife and I stayed several nights at the Crosby House during our recent trip to Astoria. We occupied the "Column View" room throughout our stay and found it clean and relatively comfortable. It should be noted that this room faces the street and due to the age of the property, street noise is an issue especially in the morning, Furthermore, due to the climate in the northwest, A/C was not available. It was not an issue for our stay as the temperature never rose above the mid 60s but visitors should take note. One more fact regarding this particular room is its size as this particular room is a bit on the small end and makes sprawling out with luggage a bit of a challenge. The aforementioned descriptions are just notes for possible customers to take into account before booking. As you can see from the ratings, we enjoyed our stay at the Crosby House. Our hostess was very pleasant and cooked a big breakfast every morning. This location is ideal for a stay in Astoria as we hardly utilized our car. Bars, restaurants, and attractions (including the trolley) are all within walking distance. The B&B offers a cozy balcony that overlooks the river and 101 bridge. Grab a beer and enjoy the sunset.
This is an old home that is being lovingly restored and managed by Pam and Dave. There are charming little touches like a small vase of fresh carnations in the room and a very lovely garden. This is a traditional bed and breakfast without pretense or modernizing. It was welcoming and warm - just what we needed as the storm blew in.
My husband & I started our 10 day vacation at this great inn! We had the Garden Suite, beautiful clean room with private patio. Bill was very thorough in answering all questions and gave us a great orientation. Property has a secluded hot tub spa that we enjoyed! After a short walk on a private trail there was the almighty Pacific with sandy beach included. Bill cooked up an amazing breakfast that all the guests at the table raved about. We certainly got our money's worth and more!!
Teresa is very friendly and an excellent cook. I loved the breakfast settings, different every morning. The rooms are beautiful and the balcony is comfortable with a nice view. My husband appreciated the coffe/tea room, the coffee was delicious. I would recommend their B&B to our friends. We were celebrating our 55th anniversary. Thank You Teresa Jim and Donna McKee
Lovely stay in Astoria. Easy walk to downtown area (altho' return is uphill for those with mobility problems). Every effort is made to provide necessities & information. The property is beautifully maintained. Due to schedule we were unable to stay for the included breakfast, but Pam made the extra effort to get up early and provide us with a carry-out breakfast to take on our way. There were several other guests, but we never heard a sound. Very quiet. Would definitely stay here again.
We found Rose River Inn B&B to be very comfortable and enjoyable. Pam and David are lovely hosts and breakfast was different than the norm and delicious! We loved the sitting porch in our room overlooking the Columbia River. Glad for the tip about where to see a large number of sea lions in Astoria. Wish we could have spent more time there!
We only stayed here one night as we were passing through Astoria but it was a very nice stay. We were in the Waterfront room which had french doors that open to a balcony where we sat and drank coffee. Teresa has done a very nice job of adding a coffee/tea room for the guests to enjoy at anytime of the day. Teresa gave us some restaurants to choose from that were close by so we walked over to Buoy Brewery which was very good. The breakfast she served was very good so I would highly recommend staying here.
The Rose River Inn is a beautiful home up the hill from the Columbia River with an awesome view of the town and river. It is walking distance from several great places to eat, as well as the maritime museum. It is also a short drive/good hike to the column and all of its scenery. The host are a friendly and attentive couple, who go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. We stayed in the Rose Room, which is well-lit and comfy, with antique pieces and decoration. The claw-foot tub was also a nice touch. Breakfast in the morning brought great eats and good company. Would definitely return!
We had a good feeling about this place as we pulled onto the quiet Franklin Avenue and parked at the large, neat house on a hill overlooking the town and the Columbia. We weren't disappointed. Pam and David were very welcoming - friendly and informative - and our room was just perfect. Large, homely, while neat and clean. Our instant (and only) regret was that we were only staying one night. It would have been lovely to see the town and have the chance to spend time reading and relaxing in the cheerful (and very comfortable) room. There are no negative aspects to staying at the Rose River Inn - it's a place befitting the wonderful city of Astoria.
We only stayed one night as we were passng through and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Theresa does a very nice job and the coffee/tea room outside of the rooms upstairs is a really nice touch. Would highly recommend this place. We stayed in the Waterfront room and it had french doors opening out onto a deck with a view of the waterway beyond. Didn't get to explore too much but did find a nice place a short walk away to eat.
Astoria was our final destination during our Labor Day trip to Oregon, and the Rose River Inn was the perfect place to stay. David and Pam were gracious hosts, offering great recommendations for dinner. The room was beautiful, with a great view of the river. We loved sitting on the front porch after dinner and enjoying the soft misty air. Finally, Pam's hearty soufflé was a delicious way to start the day as we headed out of town. Thank you both--we hope to join you again! Rex and Rita
The Rose River Inn is a well appointed, clean and delightful home devoted almost entirely to the B&B business, It is quiet, well situated just minutes from the heart of Astoria, the hosts are delightful and the breakfasts are tasty. We'll stay there again if we ever go back to Astoria...
Pam and David were great hosts. Their Breakfast was outstanding and we were set for the day. We had the third floor suite and it was perfect. Staying here made us feel like locals not tourists. We highly recommend Rose River Inn B&B.
The Rose River Inn was easy to spot with it's beautiful garden of roses, hydrangeas, and dahlias. Parking was very easy on the side of the Inn. The moment we arrived we were treated like old friends. Pam greeted my husband and I by name. We were shown to our room on the top floor, which was absolutely wonderful. Pam and David's love of color is evident both inside and out. The collection of fiesta ware, vintage lunch boxes and thermoses are a treat. The location is excellent, being within walking distance of the waterfront, shops and restaurants. In the evening, we sat on the big porch and enjoyed the company of other guests. After a restful night, we awoke to fresh coffee before a wonderful breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt,vegetable quiche and lemon cake. We loved it! Thanks!
