“Awesome Views, Great Breakfast, Very Accommodating Host, Most Comfortable Bed”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed here 2 nights on a road trip up the coast of Southern California to Oregon. We enjoyed the awesome views and the super comfortable bed. The host, John, was very nice and accommodating. The breakfasts were wonderful. Unfortunately it poured rain the entire day we were there and were not able to enjoy the hot tub. But nonetheless, we totally enjoyed our stay in Brookings.

“Peaceful, Beautiful, & Comfortable”
Reviewed 17 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We stayed with John and Nancy for four nights. This was our first private bookin experience, and we had no preconceived expectations. Our stay was wonderful. We could not have asked for more gracious and friendly hosts. John and Nancy are very personable and interesting people. They welcomed and treated us much like family. We were greeted every morning cheerfully with many different breakfast options and most importantly for us, delicious coffee.

Our room was private, favored a beautiful view of the ocean with its rugged shoreline, and was appointed with an extremely comfortable bed. We were provided a private full bathroom and use of a soothing hot tub with spectacular views of the ocean. After many long walks through nearby state parks and along Oregon beaches, the hot tub was a wonderful luxury.

We enjoyed getting to know John and Nancy who were willing to share much of their knowledge of the state parks, shorelines, local history as well as their experiences living in the area. We enjoyed our full stay thoroughly. Despite our lack of experience with bed and breakfast establishments, I doubt we will have the same rich, quality experience as our stay with John and Nancy. For us, our first experience with John and Nancy likely set the bar too high. Stay with John and Nancy, and you will never regret your decision!

The view from our room was beautiful. It was beautiful to wake up in the morning and see the sun coming up. John and Nancy were very welcoming and awesome hosts. Made us feel at home. I can't wait to have time to go again. :) Loved it!

“Comfortable and economical”
Reviewed 23 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Kate and I love to search the Oregon Coast for quiet, extremely scenic rentals or B&B's. For the past two years the Dunshee House at Face Rock has been our favorite. It apparently was destroyed sometime last Fall and only remains. What a tragedy. We found Mermaid's Muse and stayed 3 nights. It was a safe and secure, highly decorated home. Since we were sharing the home of another we felt less able to have the autonomy we desire and have had with a vacation rental. We found the owners to be very nice hosts should you wish to have lots of contact in the B&B atmosphere. The location is terrific and the view from the hot tub is of the Brookings harbor and coastline. Such scenery doesn't get much better than this! We found lots to do even in the Winter time. We golfed at the Salmon Run course, hiked several coastal trails and searched out restaurants serving great food. It doesn't always rain and the temperatures were comfortable enough to golf in a sweater. Brookings Harbor marina has been rebuilt and a fine destination for recreational boaters. The fishing boat and sailboat traffic was occasional and blended into the view from the deck of Mermaid's Muse. Tidal changes are dramatic and every time one looks out the expansive windows the shoreline is different. All of these descriptions are to reinforce why one should consider a trip to the Oregon Coast and we think you won't be disappointed by this B&B.

“Dramatic views, private room and hot tub, excellent breakfast...what more can you want?”
Reviewed 20 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

The other reviewers are right on point about the hosts John and Nancy. We arrived at 9pm and were greeted with some wine and good conversation. That night, we relaxed in the hot tub under the stars and all the road stress from the day melted away. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom clean and private. In the morning, we slept in and were greeted with the Oregon coast and morning sunlight. What a glorious way to wake up!
Breakfast was a wide array of options -fruit, yogurt, juice, eggs, toast, great coffee. We were happy to chat with John and house guest Arnie, and invited to enjoy ourselves on their waterfront deck afterwards. It was a divine experience. Highly recommended!
