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.


Boreas Bed and Breakfast

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!


Feels like home away from home

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.


Boreas B&B, the place to stay in Long Beach, WA

4.6 on June 05, 2017

Lovely surroundings, a hot tub and the run of the common areas in the house, what more could you ask for. The beds were comfortable, the pillows were soft and the place was very quite. Oh, of course breakfast was spectacular, too. And the innkeepers were wonderful, helpful and Bill rocks in the kitchen, Susie is the baker, and she does a great job.


Lovely Stay at Boreas

5 on April 16, 2017

The Boreas Bed and Breakfast was a lovely, calm, peaceful place to get some R and R. The rooms are very comfortable, and the common rooms are well decorated and relaxing. Bill and Susie have thought of the entertainment and comfort of their guests. There are even intricate coloring books and markers in the room. Breakfast was beautiful and delicious.

Great weekend in a beautiful setting! The Boreas Bed and Breakfast Inn was wonderful, comfortable, plush, and the food was absolutely incredible! I highly recommend.


Great start to our vacation!

5 on October 11, 2016

My husband & I started our 10 day vacation at this great inn! We had the Garden Suite, beautiful clean room with private patio. Bill was very thorough in answering all questions and gave us a great orientation. Property has a secluded hot tub spa that we enjoyed! After a short walk on a private trail there was the almighty Pacific with sandy beach included. Bill cooked up an amazing breakfast that all the guests at the table raved about. We certainly got our money's worth and more!!

Great B&B

5 on August 21, 2016

We stayed at Boreas three nights and wish we could have stayed longer. It is lovely. The hosts, Bill and Susie make you feel very welcomed. Our room (Stargazer) was airy, bright and comfortable with a view of the ocean. The breakfast was to die for. Beautiful presentation and very delicious.

Innkeeper Response
Sorry we are responding to your great review so late. Thank you so much for staying with us--you picked a nice time to be here. Today, we are experiencing the tale end of a typhoon and it's blowing about 60 and we have only just begun to see the impact of this storm. We are so glad that you were pleased with your stay at Boreas! We love the Stargazer also and the view is really nice. We hope that you get back to Long Beach soon. We are here for you!! Thank you for taking time to write feedback for Boreas. We truly appreciate it. Take care! Susie and Bill

The Perfect Weekend Escape

5 on July 24, 2016

We stayed at Boreas for 2 nights in the Garden Suite. The room and our private deck were comfortable, had everything we needed, private, peaceful and we could walk out our door and after a 10 minute delightful walk be at the beach. Breakfasts were amazing! 3 courses, homemade, fresh and organic ingredients. Common areas were beautiful, plenty of space to socialize or be on your own. Private access to the hot tub was wonderful. Susie and Bill were the perfect hosts - providing as much or as little information, advice, and conversation as you wanted. Cannot possibly recommend Boreas more highly whether you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing escape as we were or looking for an activity-filled vacation. Susie and Bill will help you achieve your goals.
