My husband and I stayed here for two nights while on our honeymoon. The quality of service was excellent--Mrs. Smigel was invisible unless we wanted to see her, and the peace and quiet were very welcome. She also makes wonderful breakfasts with quality ingredients and is quick to provide anything you need. The bed and breakfast is right on the...

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend at the Zen Garden B&B. This is the perfect place to get away from a busy life and unwind. The B&B was lovely - beautifully decorated and well equipped with everything you could possibly want. It was very comfortable and peaceful. We could even hear the waves. The B&B is located on...

Zen Garden B&B is located at the south end of Manzanita, OR, just steps from Manzanita's 7 mile long beach. It is peaceful and beautiful. Breakfasts are absolutely delicious and served on lovely china. So refined! The Hiroshige Suite is the perfect place to relax after an invigorating walk along the beach, or in Nehalem State Park. The suite has...

This is a nice place to stay, The location is good; you are not in the wilderness but you are away from the turmoil on the main street of Manzanita. The Zen Room has pretty pictures and furnishings, very comfortable. The Bistro makes a sitting area and the view of the park from there is lovely. It is cosy for...

We had a wonderful two nights here; the bed was comfortable, the place was quiet and the food was very good. We went there because we saw the menu someone put on Tripadvisor and the shrimp omelets are worth going for alone. Mrs. Smigel, who seemed very pleasant to us, said the shrimps are wild from the Gulf of Mexio...

After making our reservation we began receiving the multiple e-mails, (7 in total), with rules, etc. and started having trepidations about our stay. What happened upon arrival was unbelievable. We arrived at the allowed time, (4 p.m.) and Mrs. Smigel (who goes by Mrs. anything anymore?) demanded to know who we were and see our driver's license - no hello...

Beautiful, clean place; warm, spacious and quiet. Breakfast was very good, fresh OJ, generous amount of eggs, bacon etc. and shredded cabbage! A Zen touch. We were surprised how much we liked that. Friendly people and a really gorgeous, long, sandy beach just down the street; it seemed to go on forever. Wonderful for our walks beside the ocean. Very...

“We stayed in the smaller room, I bet the larger room would have been heaven! It helped that there is an enclosed area off the B&B rooms that was great for us to do our computer work and have wine and cheese (be sure and try Tillamook cheese and Nehalem wine - both are excellent!)”
