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!
Thank you for the sweet review. We loved having you stay at Boreas for your celebration. We truly appreciated your warmth; you were a pleasure to have as our guests. We hope you come back soon for another visit. Thanks again!! Susie

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!
Thank you for your wonderful review. I apologize for being untimely in my response. Your loyalty and appreciation of Boreas means the world to us. We are glad Boreas offers a haven for you to rest, relax and appreciate the beauty of the beach. Mi casa is tu casa! Always! Thank you again and hope to see you two again soon!

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.

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.

What a wonderful time we had at Boreas.. The room was wonderful, had our own little private porch where we sat and enjoyed the sounds of the ocean. We also had a visitor outside our room each night, a bear came by to sample the apples from a nearby tree. Never saw him but Bill was out sooshing him away. The beautiful breakfasts we enjoyed were INCREDIBLE!! I like to cook but Bill has me beat hands down. Comfort, Friendliness, Informative about the area, you name it, they've got it. Thanks so much for making our trip to Washington so memorable. Hope you didn't have to make to many brownies Bill, every time I turned around, my husband had one in his mouth! LOL.

We just happened to get a room due to a cancellation. It was Kite Festival week and beautiful weather.. The room was clean and comfortable and nicely decorated. The yard is full of flowers and nice plantings. The hosts are really friendly. They were planning dinner at The Lost Roo and invited all the guests to join. You could tell they love meeting people and helping them to enjoy their vacation. The breakfasts were so good - and plentiful - no lunch required! There were several other guests - all repeating customers. I would definitely stay there again. Oh, and there is always coffee and a plate full of brownies available!

This was our first trip to Long Beach and we chose the perfect B & B. Susie and Bill were amazing hosts providing us with gourmet breakfasts, cozy and charming rooms, large relaxing backyard with gorgeous flower gardens and distant view of the ocean. Sitting around the charming decor of the breakfast table chatting with other guests was fun and informative. We highly recommend Boreas.

But more relaxing, with a gorgeous ocean outside and lovely comforts inside. Breakfast is diverse each morning, and Susie and Bill are like old friends by the time you leave. A lovely getaway.
