“Look elsewhere...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2011

Great location, but severely overpriced for the ambiance, the overall look of the property, and the food. Major issue: a two week cancellation policy, which leaves a traveler zero freedom to change plans mid-trip. The town appears economically depressed, like most along this lower stretch of the coast, offering virtually nothing but tacky waterfront shops, golf and beach combing (and the beaches aren't nearly as nice as the beaches around Florence up north). We would have cancelled our reservation had we been free to do so, but 2 weeks notice is outrageous. Despite all of this negativity, the inn keeper was a pleasant, accommodating person. The property, though clean and adequately appointed, lacked the typical guest-pampering luxury of a typical B&B. Look elsewhere if you want an elegant B&B, and skip Bandon in general if you're looking for excitement.

Room Tip: Ours was cramped and unremarkable.

Shirley runs an amazing B&B. Everything is five star from the rooms to the breakfasts. There is a peaceful feeling in the B&B, the views of the river and the sea are mesmerising. Shirley goes out of her way to make your visit memorable. The town is close by with good restaurants which Shirley is happy to give you information about and then book a table for you. The high speed internet which is available was the best we experienced on our trip. I would recommend the Lighthouse B&B to anyone. Margaret & Dave - England

Shirley, the owner, is a character--she will keep you entertained while you scarf down the amazing breakfast spread she cooks every morning. Plenty of delicious options that vary from day to day (she'll even ask what you feel like eating tomorrow). Make sure she introduces you to her seagull friend, Baby.

The room was cozy and comfortable (no TV for those of you who can't live w/o, though you're welcome to use the one in the living room). The best part about it was the view--you can lie in bed and see the ocean, the Coquille River, the lighthouse, and the sunset. One night we happened to catch the Coast Guard doing practice maneuvers in the river--search lights, helicopter raising and lowering a backboard to the deck of the ship.... It was quite interesting to watch.

This B&B is definitely a gem and the cost is a steal!

As many others have noted, the location is spectacular and Shirley is a wonderful host. From the complimentary wine to the fabulous breakfasts to the wonderful living room with outstanding views, you just can't go wrong staying here. We'll definitely be back!

We've stayed in a number of excellent B&B's around the country and this one rates with the best, starting with the bottle of wine and snacks set out for us on our arrival. It is also an easy walk into Bandon for some very good dining options. The setting for the B&B is marvelous, perched right alongside a river inlet and looking over at a lighthouse with nothing else horning in the near vicinity. A short walk takes you out to the coast or into Bandon itself. Breakfast is a treat, in our case with fresh fruit, copious amounts of quiche, french toast, and breakfast meats. The hostess is also a marvel, although she readily admits she needs to sell out so she can comfortably retire, if only she could find a buyer. It was to our benefit, and that of our companion guests, that she still owns and operates this B&B, providing us with a pleasant respite as we worked our way down the Pacific coast to San Francisco. I only wish we could have stayed longer.

faMy wife and I stayed for two nights as part of a trip from the San Fran Bay area to Portland, OR. Shirley is a delight - gracious, attentive, informative. Her breakfasts are extensive and delicious. Her pet seagulls ("Stanley and Olivia") visit every morning for breakfast - providing entertainment for guests. Our room was very nicely-appointed (as is the rest of this beautiful home). The location of the B+B is within easy walking distance of Old Town and its restaurants.

Try a new restaurant in town - 'The Loft' - highly recommended and great location in the Old Town.

The location of this B&B is unmatched. At the mouth of the Coquille River, across the river from the lighthouse. We stayed in the Sunset Room. Within 15 minutes of our arrival, an eagle soared by the room window, about 25 feet away. The inn is very comfortable. Shirley, the hostess, is a gem. Breakfast was delicious. It included fresh fruit, quiche, lemon-cream cheese stuffed french toast, pastries, and ham. No one will leave hungry. You will be full of great food and great conversation. We would love to return to this B&B.
