You'll love a stay with Cindy...with the ready smile and beautiful Presentation breakfast!
We had a lovely room with attached LARGE bath! Cindy provided us with a self-guided tour map of historic homes, within walking distance, after the rain blew away!

This is a nice place and we would stay again. It's located on a hill in a very interesting neighborhood of older big homes. The neighborhood is probably the most interesting thing about Aberdeen, WA which is kind of a dull place with not a lot of scenery and very few decent restaurants. Our room was very nice, breakfast was good, and the owner is a very nice lady to deal with. However the name is somewhat misleading as there really isn't much of a view. We didn't care about that but it is worth mentioning given the name of the B&B.

If you ever find yourself in Aberdeen, Washington, you're going to want to use Harbor View Bed & Breakfast as your base. Cindy was an excellent hostess (and her husband pleasant and engaging as well) and she went out of her way to accommodate our needs.

She had no problem providing us gluten-free breakfasts, so that was very much appreciated. She also was gracious in making reservations for us at Teri's Steakhouse which was a great place for dinner.

The Bed & Breakfast itself is beautifully appointed with antiques from a variety of periods and the collection of tea sets and tea pots is quite amazing. We had a chance to sneak a peek at some of the other rooms, and all of them are as advertised! We thoroughly enjoyed the Harbor View room.

Even though we really enjoyed all the antiques, we weren't lacking for any of the modern conveniences, great Internet connection, awesome big screen with DirectTV and tons of movies.

We can recommend this with high confidence!

Room Tip: Definitely recommend the Harbor View Room!

We have stayed in many B&B's across North America and after a while you get to where you can tell who has been running an B&B for several years and who is still learning. In this case our host knew what she was doing and did an excellent job.

Rooms are large and well appointed. We had a great view from our room. Breakfast was excellent. I just wish we had stayed more than one night.

The B&B is located in a residential neighborhood on a fairly steep hill. You have to mark on a side street and walk up the hill, then up some stairs.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Harbor View Inn. Actually, the inn is a large house on a hill overlooking the city. The harbor view is somewhat blocked by trees during summer months.. Still, the inn is very well maintained and offers comfortabe rooms and a great breakfast. All-in- all, a good inn at a good value for the area.

Room Tip: Choose the room carefully, as at least one bedroom has only a claw tub with no shower

When booking Cindy assured me there were a "few steps". Turned out to be 30 to our room via a dimly lit dark carpeted stairwell without adequate handrails. Our room was lovely, comfortable bed, well supplied bath room and amenities, tea kettle and cups in the room (no tea), for some reason lamp bulbs missing from ceiling fixtures in both our room and in the hallways (to save on electricty?) Antique seating chairs and love seat were cushion worn and miserable seating so that we used pillows and extra blankets for support. Cindy, try sitting in them yourself for a few minutes.The sun room view where breakfast was served has an amazing view of Grays Harbor and the B & B location is on Broadway Hill in the Velly upper crust Aberdeen area. Breakfast quality was mixed. The first morning not so great but the second excellent. Overall I cannot give it a 5 star rating.

Room Tip: Establishment not suited for the physically challenged due to stairs, poor lighting and low toilets.

My husband and I spent four days at Harbor View Inn while visiting a relative in the hospital, and this lovely home was an oasis to come back to each evening.
The house is a beautiful old home high above Aberdeen in a very exclusive neighbourhood. Very posh! We stayed in the Josephone Paine Room, which was bright and spacious with dual aspect windows and certainly had everything one could want for comfort.
Breakfasts were delicious, and the large picture windows let the eye wander over the lovely garden, the town below and the water in the distance as we enjoyed our morning coffee.
Our hostess was very kind and gracious, and took time from her busy morning to stop and chat with us at breakfast, and was very informative about places to dine, sights to see, etc.

Why stay at a hotel when you can have the best. This is definitely the place to stay while in Aberdeen.
