My husband and I have stayed at Clementine's three times now. Why do we keep coming back?? Because truly it is one of the sweetest, most darling B B's we have ever stayed in. (and we've been to quite a few!) Judith is warm, a little quirky with a great sense of humor-and a terrific cook! We love Clementine's so very much that we travel all the way from the desert Southwest to get there! A bonus is that it is located to the Oregon Coast which in itself is breathtaking.
My husband and I stayed 2 nights at this lovely B&B. The innkeeper and others who greeted us were so friendly and helpful, even securing a reservation at a restaurant in Cannon Beach that "does not take reservations". The three course breakfasts were absolutely gourmet, and the evening wine hour allowed us an opportunity to converse with other guests. The room we stayed in was beautifully appointed, wih a view of the water. The only disappointment was the quality of the towels in the bathroom. My husband even commented on the thin, flimsy material. It was not what we expected given all of the other lovely amenities that were provided.
Since this was a very affordable $95 for our 1-night stay, I was not expecting too much - how wrong I was! Judith is a hoot, and she was able to come right back at my husband with all his teasing. With the comfortable living room, it felt like we were staying at a family member's house - but Judith did not hover and we had it to ourselves after getting settled in. We traveled with another couple and took the 2 ground floor rooms. An older Victorian, very cute decor and excellent bathroom toiletries. Do be prepared to walk up steps to get into the house; Astoria is built on a hilly terrain. If you are very fit, consider walking to the Astoria Column (we drove). We went to the Silver Salmon for dinner and had perhaps the best meal of our 18-day vacation. It seemed a bit pricey, but portions are huge, the sauces and foods deftly prepared, and plated beautifully. Judith prepared a healthy and delicious breakfast, very much appreciated. We sat around a dining room table and were able to watch her putter around in the kitchen preparing the meal and chatting with her. It was just a very informal and comfortable feeling - we will most certainly look to stay here again!
I arrived at OPI on July 4, 2011. The beach was beautiful, but that was truly just the beginning. the accommodations were extraordinary. Comfort was everywhere, and our hosts could not have been nicer. The interactions between guest and hosts achieve that perfect balance of "friendly and helpful, but not intrusive". That is rare these days. The food was devine. Truly, thsi was a place that i wish that I could clone and visit in other locations. There is not a better overall lodging experience to be had.
Thank you for such a beautiful experience at OPI. It is by for one of the most beautiful places to stay in the Cannon Beach area, our room was gorgeous and the food was beyond delicious. I can't even explain how much it meant that you worked around my special diet and went as far as to make me my own cookies. We just want to thank you for all!
Nice building and site but could hardly see the water from the Inn. Room was ok but didn't really like the bathroom privacy in the room we had ... shutters on both the door and window area btwn bedroom and bathroom. Food also wasn't that good probably due to the main chef being on vacation.
I want to thank Monique as she was the best at customer service changing our date not once, but twice due to our hectic schedule. While I work in the retail industry I critique everyone I come in touch with and she was one of the best I have spoken to in several months. We look forward to staying and being a repeat guest. Thanks again, Shane W.
Arch Cape was a delightful stay near Cannon Beach. The Inn was very clean, and the hosts were extremely helpful and made sure the guests' needs were met. While the beach is across the highway, and Cannon Beach is a short drive away, it is still a lovely location. Breakfast was nicely varied, although always on a "fixed menu" from one day to the next. While all the rooms looked lovely, one word of caution - the Tuscan Spa, while well appointed, is a lower-level suite and despite best effort still feels a touch like a basement suite (even if it is the nicest basement suite you'll ever see!). If natural light is important, opt for an upper level room! Would not hesitate to visit again!
This was our first B&B stay and it set a high standard for future experiences. The room and bed were excellent, though as a previous reviewer mentioned, there is a little traffic noise in the mornings. Yes, there are stairs, but it is a Victorian home on a hillside so they are to be expected. The best part of Clementine's is Judith, the innkeeper. She graciously welcomed our boisterous group, including two dogs and a puppy, and created gourmet breakfasts in the morning. We were so pleased that she agreed to join us around the outdoor fire to share in local crab and wine.
This was our first visit to area and we fell in love with the Oregon coast. Our stay at Arch Cape just reinforced our first impressions. Cynthia and Stephen are delightful and the staff is wonderful. Chef Jon Hoffman served wonderful breakfasts and dinners. We look forward to returning. I will have a full trip report up on the BedandBreakfast.com Blog in a few days. Thank you to all at Arch Cape for a perfect stay. Rose Ciccone, Associate Editor, BedandBreakfast.com
One only need look at the photos to see how beautiful and attention detailed the Hotel is. Comfortable bed, soft linens, plush towels, gas fireplace, and the big tub combined for a perfect relaxing get a way. The food in the new café was great. Lots of it at a fair price, (Cannon Beach can be expensive to eat) and good. We highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast.
If you want a tricked out, contemporary place you can call your own, and have the ocean at your front door-this is the place. I felt as if I was at my best friend's home and it had all my creature comforts. An Lcd tv, a huge bathroom with dual rain shower, fireplace, mini stainless 'fridge', microwave, leather chairs,candles-very romantic! A nice touch to have a turn down service and the breakfast was nicely presented. I loved the patio(not private)furnishings, and having the ocean just steps away. Do yourself a favor, if you candle handle not having a pool and 24hour room service, this place will make you want to go home and transfer your home into this vacation getaway. The innkeepers are available; but invisible. It's your friends home, but they have left it there for you to enjoy. No need to go to Hawaii, stay at O.P.I.
We stayed at Clementine's B&B. The layout of the rooms was very odd. Judith first wanted to put us upstairs, but the upstairs rooms were removed from the rest of the house and seemed very isolated. Plus, the bathroom of the room where we were going to stay was down a public hallway (even though the bathroom itself was private). I requested that she put us in a room on the main floor that had its bathroom connected to the room itself, and that was much better. I ended up getting very ill on the trip with fever and chills/flu symptoms, etc. Judith was kind, but didn't even ask us if we would like to leave early seeing as how the circumstances of our visit had changed. I would have appreciated the ability to leave early with one of the nights refunded, but as it was, we stayed. I was very cold the first night (with chills, etc.), and Judith wasn't able to give us enough additional blankets nor raise the heat enough to make the temperature more cozy. I am allergic to down feathers, so granted we weren't using the down comforter, but I did make Judith aware of this prior to our stay. I would have wanted some additional blankets at least. Also, there weren't enough washcloths in the rooms. The food was very good. Judith is an excellent cook. I would have wanted a bit larger portions, though. Overall, especially understanding the circumstances, the stay was good. I would like to try out this B&B again when I'm not so sick.
Thank you Judith for a wonderful 2-night stay in late December. Little did we know our wedding place, the Clatsop County Courthouse, was just a few steps away! Judith took some photos for us in Clementine's - what a hoot! Fantastic friendly breakfasting too. Definitely a great idea for those being married in Astoria -- Courthouse wedding or not! Also, best bed we stayed in, entire trip! With fond memories, Tracy and Farley
