Lovely place, people - the breakfast is an EVENT all by itself. The dining suggestions and recommendations were perfect. The first morning there, I woke up and looked out the window and a deer was looking up at me - how perfect was that! You will love it and not want to leave.


Perfect getaway from the heat

We so enjoyed our time at Boreas--the room was great and the feather bed made for such a dreamy sleep. Breakfasts were made with expertise and care. We'll be back Thanks,


A Marvelous B&B

5 on August 23, 2018

Susie and Bill were 5 star hosts in every respect. From the presentation of the room, to the amenities, to the 3 course gourmet breakfasts to their encyclopedic knowledge of the area attractions. We cannot say enough! We highly recommend!


Serenity at the Beach

I have been visiting Boreas since 1997! I have never had a bad experience with Bill and Susie. Quite the contrary. They make a stay with them exquisite. Your walk into the inn and feel like you’ve been wrapped in a warm blanket...relaxed and at peace. Thank you Bill and Susie for all your care you have provided over these past 21 (yikes!) years.


Lovable B&B Home from Home

We enjoyed very much the day at Boreas, Susie and Bill make you feel at home at once and their breakfast is delicious. A beautiful place to be.


Anniversary get-away

5 on March 11, 2018

We spent 2 nights at the Boreas Inn in Longbeach to celebrate our 36th anniversary...Bill and Susie were so warm and welcoming and made us feel right at home! We loved our room, the Garden suite...with our own bath, and a comfortable, romantic bed. We enjoyed the lovely hot tub, the gourmet breakfasts were absolutely delicious, and Susie prepared GF pastries to meet my needs! Our hosts helped with dinner reservations, a bottle of Prosecco, and chocolates in our room. This is a very special place with only a 10 minute walk to the beach...we had a great time and will recommend this B & B to our friends!

Innkeeper Response

An amazing place to visit - Washington Beaches

4.6 on February 25, 2018

We have stayed in both the bed and breakfast and the Yett House. Susie and Bill are amazing - kind, helpful and readily available. This is one of our favorite places for family gatherings and I would definitely recommend. It is quiet, cozy and just to say - I always have a rested night's sleep. The walk to the beach is exquisite - through the dunes to a breathtaking ocean panaroma. Thank you Susie and Bill!

Innkeeper Response

Anniversary Stay

4.0 on October 12, 2017

I wanted to be on the coast, be able to walk the beach and rest in a interesting place if it rained. Both were met perfectly. A wonderful path just behind the B&B to walk to the beach and interesting games to play inside looking out at the rain. Nice hot tub too. But Bill and Susie are great chefs. Food was the best ever. I felt relaxed and at home not worried about using fingers or it being too foo-foo. Food was divine. Local berries and mushrooms cooked to perfection. Fun people, fun place, we felt pampered but not smothered. Will return often. Thank You two for a wonderful place to celebrate.


Favorite place to be

5 on September 24, 2017

The Boreas is my favorite place to be. The stargazer room has the most comfortable bed and amazing view. The back yard is so peaceful and with the deer it's so serine. Then there is the most amazing breakfasts with great conversations. It's so my happy place. Romantic, relaxing and filling. My next trip is already booked. I can't wait to go back.
