Clean, nicely updated, homey, comfortable, charming accommodations with a flavor from the 1940s-50. Fabulous location on South Oregon Coast dunes, set back from the beach, easy access on sand path through the grassy dunes to wide beach miles longs. Incredible sunset-watching from the porch or kitchen table, whales spouting, Northern Harrier and Cooper's Hawk soaring over the grassy dunes. Dog-friendly rooms a real plus. Managers helpful and friendly and taking great care of the place. Will come back next time I need a retreat/peace/nature!

I stayed at the Windermere for a recent weekend and as always it was great. I've been a visitor to the Windermere for 43 years. We continue to enjoy the rooms, awesome access to the beach, nearby and easy access to town, friendly people (workers and visitors) and the best sand on the west coast. I thank everyone at the Windermere for making my wife's birthday weekend so great.

Although the physical plant of this hotel may be a bit weathered, we had a wonderful stay here. The staff was very helpful and they have managed to update the rooms quite well in the last 2 years of ownership. The view is unbeatable from the edge of the cliff...perfect for cocktails on a warm February evening. And the beach is one of the best walks I have found on the Oregon coast. Good fish restaurants on Old Town Bandon just a mile or 2 away.

This hotel was nice and felt clean, but was old and drafty. I stayed in the family pet unit and loved the location right on the water front (sliding door to a deck and view) as well as having an upstairs with 2 beds. In unit 5 there was supposed to be 2 TV's however there was no TV upstairs. The bathroom was extremely small too. The heater barely kept up with the 45 degree days. The kitchen-ette was good and stocked well. Having a dining table that sat 4 was nice. Overall experience was good and I'd go back due to the convenience, location and how many it can accommodate.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us, and providing us with feedback. Room # 5 is a Traditional Family Cottage and those do not have 2 televisions. The Premiere Family Cottage is the one that has the 2 televisions and has been upgraded. However, the Premiere Family Cottage is not a pet friendly room. Thank you for noticing how clean our rooms are. They were built in 1936 so yes, the bathrooms are small and there is no way to enlarge them without taking out the kitchen. We do hope you stay with us again. We have checked the heat in that room, and if you have a problem again, please come to the office and we can take care of it for you to ensure a comfortable stay.

We loved this place! A friend and I stayed here for two nights and enjoyed it immensely. We had a charming, 2-story cottage (built in the late 30's), and everything was perfect. The kitchen was well-stocked, sliding glass doors offered a stunning view of the ocean, it was spacious, cozy, well-maintained and incredibly clean. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. It's the kind of place that if I was a writer, I'd spend a couple of months here writing my next book here.

Some friends and I came down to see the holiday lights at Shore Acres Park, and just needed a place for one night.
The rooms were very clean, the front desk person very nice, and the view unbeatable! For the price, one of the best places on the Oregon coast.
