Great place for wife's birthday surprise!

4.8 on July 29, 2011

Stayed 2 nights (July 2011). Really enjoyed the quite and serenity of the Hirshige Room. As previously mentioned, great collection of books; you need to bring your own DVD's if you want your own preferences. But...really enjoyed the NO TV (!!!) or news. Thankfully, the weather wasn't bad ( a little windy), but the service and food (breakfasts) were plentiful and delicious. As Arnie said " I'll be back!!!!!"".

Great Getawaqy

I was planning a "kidnapping" of my wife and wanted to stay someplace very nice. While surfing B&B's on the Oregon coast I stumbled across the Zen Garden. We were not disappointed. If you are looking for a very quiet (read no, repeat NO, television but there is a rear projection monitor, DVD player, CHS player and a CD player.) place to getaway from it all, Zen Garden is perfect. As has been said, the breakfast was wonderful, the accommodations were very nice. We loved it. A word to the wise. The library is very eclectic, however the music, DVD and VHS selections are limited. Either bring your bring your own or plan to rent in Manzanita at the grocery store.

Anniversary visit

Visited for 2 nights for our 25th wedding anniversary, very much enjoyed the stay, the breakfasts were delicious, the bed very comfortable and Mrs Smigel was quite helpful

Great Breakfast, very private, but the Zen Room is small

If you want a private stay this is the place for you. I loved that my wife and I ate together without having to talk with another couple. The breakfast was great with several options. We will go back but we will not stay in the Zen room. It is too small. The Hiroshige is spacious and not that much more.
