Nice Place in Lincoln City

4.0 on August 21, 2018

Beautiful old home, off the, main road so quiet. Great Breakfast. Access to the the Lake and even a canoe to paddle about in. A whole hedge of Blackberries to graze on and beautiful flower abound. Nice decks to lounge on. Great conversations with Red and Mary. We will definitely stay again when in the area.

Comfortable Bed and Breakfast

Peaceful! Beautiful!

Great Experience!

5 on August 06, 2018

The Lake House B&B is attractive, comfortable and in a gorgeous location. There are flowers all around the property and direct access to the lake. The room was spacious and very comfortable and the hosts were charming and took very good care of me. They even let me use their canoe!

I want to go back......and stay longer!!! And my teenage son actually agrees!

5 on July 24, 2018

Red and Mary are simply the best hosts ever. The served a delicious breakfast and our accommodations were quite comfortable, especially for the reasonable price! I loved sitting on our balcony deck drinking coffee while enjoying the cool Oregon coast summer weather. The hot tub was already warm and waiting for us, which helped my body recover from the previous day's whitewater rafting excursion. We were on a weeklong road trip, and this was toward the end of it. As we left, our teenage son declared, "This was my favorite place of the whole trip. I want to come back!" He particularly enjoyed taking the kayak out on the lake and looking at all of the beautiful homes built along the shoreline. Thank you, Red and Mary, and we hope to return, and stay longer next time!

a real gem!

Had a wonderful visit with Mary and Red. Highly recommended. A super friendly atmosphere and an incredibly sumptuous breakfast!

Cozy and private B&B

5 on August 29, 2017

My husband and I have stayed at the Lake House B&B before. Mary and Red the owners are very nice and hospitable. Both rooms were clean. Coffee was ready at 7 am. Breakfast was delicious as always. My sister and husband loved every bit of it including the canoe ride at the lake. Love the conversation with Mary and Red and will definitely come back.

Beautiful spot, comfortable room, amazing breakfast!

4.8 on July 11, 2017

Beautiful place with comfortable room. Mary and her husband were so friendly and accommodating and made an amazing breakfast for us in the morning complete with fresh fruit smoothies, homemade muffins and more. We would definitely go back!

The Lake House

5 on June 13, 2017

Great accommodations! Red and Mary were the best hosts! Breakfast was fantastic. Would definitely return.

Making you feel right at home..

5 on February 06, 2017

My first experience was quite, peaceful, comfy, and welcoming. I enjoyed the Lake side room, the master bed was real comfy. And not to leave out the HOT TUB on the outside deck was awesome! Melted miles of driving from my back. Thank you Red and Mary! Beautiful location for some well deserved R&R..

Restful, rain-filled weekend

5 on September 21, 2016

Mary and Red's hospitality was a key reason for our wonderful stay at the duck cabin. Delicious breakfasts, great conversations, and a restful, re creative weekend was just what the doctor ordered. Beautiful nature all around and shopping with good food only minutes away made our weekend trip worth every moment.

Wonderful Gem

4.8 on August 12, 2016

Mary and Red were outstanding warm and approachable! The style of décor and kind hosts really did make it feel like a stay at grandparents. Our private deck was lovely.We found when the weather at the coast was too windy and cold the weather at the lake was completely different and milder. Breakfasts were outstanding.....very delicious and coffee was always ready early. We enjoyed the conversation around the table as well. Thanks Mary and Red, Eric and Lucinda Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect girls weekend

5 on March 23, 2016

Mary & Red are excellent hosts! They were unable to greet us when we checked in and it was wonderful. Mary made sure to leave clear instructions, there was even a hand written note in the bedroom when we arrived giving more instructions. I felt like I was visiting my grandparents they are so warm and inviting and think of all the details. We were upgraded to a room facing the lake with a hot tub! That was fantastic, it was so nice to get to sit in the hot tub on a cloudy Oregon day!

Perfect birthday getaway at the coast

4.6 on December 16, 2015

My Fiancee and I had a great time at the Lake house. Its just minutes away from Lincoln city but just far enough to be quiet and somewhat secluded. We stayed in the lake view room which was large and comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic. I would recommend this place to anyone.

so perfect! Friendly, inaccurate, delicious breakfast outstanding location.

5 on September 30, 2015

You could not stay at a more perfectly run B&B. We TRUELY felt at home with perfect accommodations and excellent hosts.

Great place, great hosts

5 on August 29, 2015

I highly recommend Lake House. Marry and Red are great hosts and the rooms are wonderful.

Lovely Stay!

4.8 on July 27, 2015

My husband and I stayed at the Lakehouse B&B in June 2015 and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the hosts were lovely people! We had a deck patio all to ourselves and we really enjoyed sitting outside, taking in the beauty and tranquil surroundings. Breakfast was delicious and we very much enjoyed our conversation with the hosts. We highly recommend this little B&B!


5 on April 29, 2015

The best vacation that we have ever been on!!! Food was outstanding and home made yum!

Spinners weekend

4.8 on January 22, 2015

Beautiful view, great company, delicious breakfast and comfortable beds. What more could you ask for?! :)

Lovely spot

3.8 on November 09, 2014

Visiting here felt like staying with our grandparents (the décor, the attentive host and her husband). We enjoyed our stay. The decor wasn't to our tastes but room was clean and roomy. TV in the Lakeside Room is very small, which didn't bother us at all but might bother someone who was looking forward to watching television. We liked the private entrance and loved the small hot tub out on the deck. There was plenty of food at breakfast, especially loved the fruit and smoothies. Upstairs there is a small fridge shared with the Rose Garden Room. It would be nice to come at a different time of year and go out on the lake. Conveniently located closed to Lincoln City, but outside of the city near Devil's Lake for more privacy.

Lake House B&B

4.4 on November 06, 2014

Very nice room. Mary and Red were great hosts. The room was very quiet, the bed very comfortable ( and HUGE!). There are a canoe and a rowboat available to use on the lake, but unfortunately weather didn't cooperate. I would highly recommend a stay at the LH B&B. We found the LH B&B through the list at Stash Tea. The only downer was finding that their BOGO coupons are only good for the more expensive rooms.

Felt relaxed and welcomed!

5 on September 04, 2014

My husband and I were taken back by how relaxing of an experience it truly was. Mary and Red make you feel right at home- it was like we have always known them. We had great conversations with them over amazing breakfasts! The room was super clean and very cozy! I lived the fact from my bed I could see the lake. My husband had a little boat and we docked it right there. The hot tub was my favorite! Thank you for a blessed weekend!

Honeymoon Hideaway

5 on August 18, 2014

My new husband and I so enjoyed our stay. Very private and romantic. The house is right on the lake and our room had a lake view. We had a private entrance with deck/balcony and 2-person jacuzzi. Breakfast was exceptional. We will definitely return.

Birthday at the Lake House

4.6 on August 17, 2014

My son and I had a wonderful stay in the Cottage. It was perfect for taking a small human to a B&B since we did not have to worry about disturbing the other guests. Red and Mary made us both very welcome at the table and we will definitely be returning!

Better than the Pictures

4.8 on August 13, 2014

This B&B is a little gem near Lincoln City. It is far enough from the city to be away from the busy tourists, but close enough to drive to an Outlet Mall or the coastal highway. Rooms: The "Rose Garden Room" was nice & cozy. Though a bit small for some, it was perfect for my wife and my self. The pictures online made the room look a little older fashioned than desired, but we found it a lot nicer in person (FYI: the walls are white instead of the green you see in some of their websites' pictures). I also took a peek at the "Lakeside Room" when it was unoccupied and it was nice and spacious. Personally, I think it also looked much better in person! Services: Mary & Red were excellent hosts. They know the area very well, had excellent suggestions for shopping/eating, and were talkative enough to be approachable- but they gave enough space to be alone. They allowed us use of their boat, canoe, and life vests. Breakfast: Mary & Red made an amazing bread pudding with whiskey sauce. It came with an orange smoothie, orange juice and fruit. Following it came pancakes, a strawberry topping, hashbrowns, and sausage (NOT like those from a frozen box). The guests in the Cabin had to leave before breakfast to join their family in town, so Red & Mary ate with us. They were very sociable and all of us at the table had a great time! Planning on going back someday :D

Another Enjoyable Stay

4.4 on July 29, 2014

Second time we have stayed at the Lake House, and planning to return next year.

Anniversary and vacation

4.8 on July 15, 2014

We stayed four nights in the Lakeside room. Nice large room with a beautiful view of the lake.Mary and Red made us feel right at home. The personal attention and superb care makes this a very special place to stay. Every morning we were looking forward to the delicious healthy breakfast that Mary prepared. We highly recommend this B&B, and are planning to visit again next year.

Quiet Getaway

5 on June 23, 2014

There were a kayak and a row boat at our disposal and a private deck on which to read. We had coffee and a refrigerator right outside our room. It was a lovely stay. We hope to go back in the near future. The two breakfasts we had were both delicious and pleasant sitting around the table with the owners and the other guests. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone wanting a relaxing and pleasant time away.

Lovely Cottage

4.6 on May 12, 2014

Our Golden Sister Club - four of us got together for the weekend at this B & B - we were having a wonderful time there and we would love to come back again next year for our 10th anniversary.

The cleanest room We've ever stayed in.

Wonderful hosts and visit

5 on October 07, 2013

We very much enjoyed our stay -- unfortunately we only had one night. Terrific hosts, amazing breakfast, very nice room -- and they even lent us their canoe to go out on the lake.

Lovely stay at the Ldake House

4.8 on September 20, 2013

Mary and her husband fixed a beautiful and healthy breakfast for us each morning. The table was set for royalty, the food was delicious, and they were both welcoming and hospitable hosts.

Fantastic B&B

4.6 on September 15, 2013

This was a one-night stay on a whistle-stop tour of Oregon and Northern California. Fantastic hospitality and a truly wonderful breakfast. We wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended

All good.

3.8 on September 04, 2013

It's a great location and the Lake Side room looks right out over the water. Very relaxing. If you're the kind of person that likes to sleep late, then maybe not a perfect fit since breakfast is served at 9 AM. Also the power craft users on the lake start early when the weather is warm.


5 on August 28, 2013

Mary and Red are wonderful hosts and our family had a great time at there place.

Relaxing and Welcoming

4.6 on August 20, 2013

We stayed two nights at the Lake House and can highly recommend it. The Lakeside room has a great view of the lake and it has more than enough room to spread out and relax. This location is just minutes from the main drag (Hwy 101) in Lincoln City, but it feels like you are out in the country with the quiet. Mary and Red, are perfect hosts and the breakfasts were exceptional.

Mary & Donald were excellent hosts

5 on July 29, 2013

Gail & Zachary

Relaxing and fun

4.6 on July 11, 2013

Mary was an excellent hostess. She provided everything that we needed (extra towels, coffee thermos, etc.) Excellent breakfast with variety every morning was served by Mary and her husband which was exceedingly good. We stayed in the cottage which was well equipped for our needs. However, it may need a little updating. There was a microwave and two small refrigerators all in good shape. Be prepared for no TV channels as the line has been cut, but there is a few movies on VHS that can be watched. The backyard is very nice as it goes down the slope to the lake where we could use their boats. Overall, a very comfortable and nice relaxing stay.

Pretty good for the price

4.2 on May 08, 2013

Mary called to notify me what time they were there, and they would leave the key for us if we arrived there when they were not there. She also asked us if there is food we don't want for breakfast beforehand. Mary and Red are a very nice couple, and they try to take care of you well. My husband and I enjoyed our stay even though it was just one night. For us, it was worth 95 dollars + tax.

Amazing Vacation

4.6 on April 23, 2013

We came up for my boyfriends birthday, and right away the service was amazing. We were upgraded to a room with a personal hot tub. We had a comfortable king size bed with the fluffiest pillows imaginable. The owners Red and Mary were kind, and so easy to talk with. Food was delicious and flavorful. One of the best places I have ever stayed.

Relaxing vacation!

4.2 on March 28, 2013

Red and Mary are the perfect hosts! There rooms are beautifully decorated and very big. We have stayed twice and we have loved each time. Their home is very relaxing, quiet, and Devil's Lake is gorgeous. You are only a couple of miles from Lincoln City. There is a lot to do in the area. Mary cooks the most delicious breakfast! Each morning it is different. I would be happy with the same thing, but everything she makes is wonderful. I eat so much I am stuffed for the rest of the day. Thank you and we will see you again!!

Gorgeous Scenery, Gregarious Hosts

3.4 on September 14, 2012

Stayed in the cabin and enjoyed fantastic weather and amazing scenery. Was my first trip to the Oregon Coast and 'Red' and Mary helped us make the most of it. Breakfasts were good and conversation was pleasant. Received great advice for how to make the best of our time in Lincoln City and beyond. I would recommend The Lake House for value and proximity to most things you'd want to do on the Oregon Coast. Close to Florence for the famous sand dunes, and close to so many other things much closer to home. There's a large Tanger outlet mall less than 1/4 mile down the road...when you're in a state with no sales tax, that's a very good thing!

Family style

5 on August 11, 2012

Very nice and friendly old couple. Breakfast was outstanding and they sat down with us on the breakfast table. We talked and shared interesting things while eating. Very peaceful and nicely maintained place with beautiful flowers. Hot tub outside the room with lake veiw was awesome. We had very private time but Mary and Red were easily available when needed. They offered their conoe with paddles and life jacket even after we checked out, for us to go out on the lake. Will definitely re-visit.

A Great Find

5 on July 29, 2012

Came across "The Lake House" by accident while searching the web for a place to stay on the Oregon Coast Line. I looked at countless places but kept coming back to this B&B. I called and made reservations for one night. My husband and I drove 14 hours and made it there around 5:00 pm. We were met with such a warm welcome by Don and Mary. The place was beautiful and our room was perfect. We had a lake view out our window and a private hot tub on our deck. The breakfast was wonderful along with the company. We shared stories, memories and laughter. We left wishing this was our destination. I would defiantly recommend this Bed and Breakfast and look forward to our next stay.

Out of the rat race

3.8 on July 25, 2012

Very nice place. Two miles out of town was perfect as town was very crowded. It was nice to come back to a quiet room. The people were great, the food was great, the bathroom could have been a little cleaner. Over all, very nice.

Relaxing & Romantic

5 on June 14, 2012

My husband and I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts, and this is one of our absolute favorites! We LOVE the beautiful view of the lake from the room. There is nothing better than sitting on the deck in the private hot tub overlooking the lake under the stars. They also have a dock with a canoe. We love taking the canoe out on the lake - it's so peaceful. Red & Mary are the best hosts - their breakfasts are amazing and the conversation is always great. Red gave us some great hiking ideas. I would highly recommend this bed & breakfast.

Fantastic stay.

5 on June 10, 2012

An easy 2 mile drive to the ocean, our two night stay at the Lake House B&B was wonderful. Great breakfasts, Red & Mary were superb hosts!!! Upgrade to a larger room at no charge... with a beautiful view of Devils Lake. Had a great time... will stay here again when in the area.

Lakeside B&B

4.0 on February 22, 2012

Our stay was wonderful. Our hosts Mary & Red were very helpful in recommending a place for dinner and attractions to see in the nearby communities. We would stay there again. They shared many wonderful stories with us. We could not have asked for better owners.

Like going to Mom and Dad's home for the weekend!

5 on November 16, 2011

We had a very nice view of the lake. I didn't want to leave. The breakfast both morning were great!! The owners were wonderful host and hostest. We would go back.

Marvin and Nancy Autio , great time at the Lake House

4.0 on October 13, 2011

We spent a few days traveling down the coast on the way to stay with my sister on the Smih River in California. Spent two nights at the Lake House and had a lovely time. Hiked, went to the casino, dined out, and savored the wonderful breakfasts served.

The Lake House B&B - A Wonderful Stay

4.8 on October 05, 2011

The Lake House B&B was a wonderful place for an evening or more! Highly recommended.

Nice last minute upgrade.

4.2 on October 02, 2011

This is a lovely place, well tended, and very comfortable. We reserved the Rose Room but decided to upgrade to the Lake House Room so we could use the hot tub. Very glad we did. The breakfast was tasty and memorable.

Beautiful oasis!

4.8 on September 07, 2011

The Lake House B & B is absolutely lovely! We stayed in the cottage for 2 nights with our young son and it met our needs perfectly... The proprietors are truly delightful people, the location is ideal, and the breakfasts were delicious. The grounds and gardens are so well-tended, and we loved the lake access and private dock. Red and Mary were very kind and sweet to our extra-special little boy, and we appreciated it so much! They gave our family some wonderful memories we will always cherish. We are so thrilled we found this place and won't bother with any of the hotels in town again. The Lake House is the place to be! Thank you Red and Mary - and blessings!

Evening Under the Stars

5 on September 01, 2011

We were upgraded to a fabulous lake-view room w/hot tub. Enjoyed a lovely evening watching the stars while relaxing in the hot tub. Fabulously comfortable bed. Extremely enjoyable breakfast with the hosts. We would stay there again!

Great Food, Good Price

3.6 on August 29, 2011

My husband and I spent two nights in one of the smaller rooms. The room was cozy and welcoming, made just for two. The bathroom although not attached was easy to access anytime. Some of the paint color and decorations are a little outdated, but nothing that compromises the comfort of the room. The food was great and plentiful and I sure both my husband and I over ate both mornings. Each breakfast was varied and delicious with sure signs of being home-made. The hosts are elderly, charming, and full of fun chatter and good stories.

Best Kept Secret in Oregon!!

5 on August 06, 2011

What wonderful accomodations! Mary and Red are wonderful hosts, the food was fantastic, our room was lovely!! We will for sure stay here again!!

Lovely Last Minute Stay

5 on August 05, 2011

Our last minute booking allowed us a discounted rate, but the stay at Red and Mary's would have been well worth even full price. Our room was comfortable and luxurious, with a picture perfect view of the lake from both the window and the hot tub. Breakfast was a culinary delight, and the hummingbird feeder just outside the glass added a touch of whimsey to our meal. We truly felt at home and relaxed with our hosts, and our only regret is that we could not stay another night and take advantage of the canoe on the lake.

No pup, but was a fun stay without him

4.2 on July 25, 2011

We spent the weekend of my husband's 40th birthday at the Cottage. We had a great time. Our girls had a blast fishing from the dock and we took the boat out on one of the mornings. Red and Mary were fabulous hosts, as usual. Breakfast was great both mornings and the kids loved the fruit smoothies. The only drawback (for us) to the B&B is their no pet policy. It would be great if we could have brought our 8 pound min pin to the beach!

Great first time experience

5 on July 24, 2011

My wife had always wanted to go to a B&B, though I never saw the attraction. For our anniversary I took her to the Lakehouse. We had a great time. Got the Lakeside room with the private hot tub. Was great to sit on the deck and enjoy the view of the lake. The breakfast was fantastic. Would recommend.

12th anniversary

5 on June 24, 2011

I was looking for a clean, quiet place to take my wife for our 12th anniversary. The cottage that was provided was perfect. Everything was very clean and the service was amazing. The couple that runs it were wonderful hosts. The food, service, and conversation made for the best experience that I have ever had at a bed and breakfast. Not only will I go back the next time I am in the states, I will recommend this place to everyone I know that is planning a trip to the Oregon coast.

Wonderful Hospitality

4.2 on March 21, 2011

What a wonderful place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The food was delicious and the hospitality couldn't be beat. Thanks for a delightful time.

Wonderful new years eve retreat!

5 on January 04, 2011

This was our first time staying at a B&B and Red and Mary made it wonderful! We usually come to the coast for New Years Eve and stay at an inexpensive motel, or so we thought. Most places were booked so I decided to check out B&Bs. I found the Lake House and their prices were not any different than the hotels I was looking at, so we decided to give it a try. We were greeted when we pulled into the drive, were shown around the place, then Mary took us up to our room, which she was upgrading for us! The room was large and very comfortable with an outside entrance so we didn't have to worry about disturbing anyone if we came back late. It also had a hot tub on the deck (too cold to use this time!) and a beautiful view of the lake. Breakfast the next morning was outstanding, and the company of Red and Mary gave us a wonderfully memorable experience. We will definitely be back to this B&B again, as well as look into staying at other B&Bs when we travel. Thank you Red and Mary for a great start to our New Year!! Mike and Kathi

Nice retreat, good solid and tasty cookin'

4.8 on December 22, 2010

The hosts here are very nice folks. We had a delightful overnight getaway while doing some shopping, and had a solid nights sleep. The homecooked breakfast was a delicious, solid start to a morning, accompanied with strong coffee. Our hosts dined with us and was had a great chat over the courses. We will deffinately visit again.


5 on December 04, 2010

My wife and i stayed just 1 night but we have been planning our return since. Red and Mary are the most wonderful hosts and the rooms are magnificent,i cant end without mentioning breakfast,its worth the price of the room alone .Thanks red and mary we will be back

Best honeymoon ever

5 on October 08, 2010

In june my husband and I stayed here and it was amazing. we had the best breakfast and learned a few things. we plan to go back for our 1 year and see them again. if you are looking for a place that is so nice you cant believe then you found it. I promise you wont be let down here. Max and Maleena

We'll be back with our kayaks!

5 on August 04, 2010

This is the first B&B we've stayed in and will certainly be returning soon. Red and Mary have done a wonderful job on the property and as hosts are fantastic. Very relaxing and rejuvenating stay.

wonderful stay

5 on July 20, 2009

Had a wonderful time- great hosts, lots of fun. Beautiful views, fantastic food. Would definitely come back!

Great Value

4.8 on September 28, 2008

Whenever I travel I try to stay in B&B's and have stayed in several in the past 5 years. The Lake House was the best experience to-date. The host and hostess are very friendly and accomodating--they make you feel like old friends. The accomodations are very roomy, comfortable and modernized. The location is great with the lake view and the private on-deck hot tub is naughty, but nice. I would definately stay here again and recommend it to anyone wanting a nice, relaxing stay.
