“Seemed like we were staying with long-time friends”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We just enjoyed a couple of days away from our daily lives to enjoy a time of celebration of 44 years of marriage. John, Nancy and Arnie were so welcoming and kind, it seemed as if we were with long time friends. It was indeed exactly what we wanted/needed. We were able to relax and enjoy their incredible setting as we wanted. No rush, no rigid schedule - just a 'go as the spirit moves' time. We thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

“Outstanding property!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We normally find a hotel but we booked this because it sounded interesting and we wanted to have a peaceful time with a great view. This turned into so much more!
John and Nancy are engaging, intelligent and fun to be around. Typically we would be off doing things on our own but found ourselves just hanging around here. Why not? We had a great view of the ocean and beaches, comfort indoors and out, all the privacy we wanted, a wonderful hot tub.
Normally I don't sleep well and I'm up at dawn but didn't wake up 'til 9 am with this amazing bed and the sound of the ocean all night. Finally, the smell of bacon and an amazing breakfast pulled me around. You couldn't find a hotel for the price we paid for all of this. What a terrific value!

Your review certainly made my day! We were honored to be chosen for such a special event and your kind evaluation of my Greek Eggs was very heartening, since you had a restaurant and catering service. Understandably, most people do not bother to write reviews, since every on line service now requests them routinely -so for those who take the trouble, I recognize it as a very special thank you note.

“A Warmly Elegant Ambiance with Pitch-Perfect Hospitality”
Reviewed 13 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

person found this review helpful

We'll always have an extra-special fondness for our stay at Mermaid's Muse!
John and Nancy have a spacious, visually engaging and even snuggly home with epic ocean views. The delightful wing called "Mermaid's Muse" was our own private, out of earshot space to retreat, relax and replenish our energies.

As Bed and Breakfast hosts, John and Nancy keep a mellow vibe that lets the guest seek them out when conversation is desired. Your luxe quarters are thoughtfully appointed and supremely comfortable. Your hosts are also intelligent, good-humored folks that grace your stay with their desire to make you feel at home.
At arrival, we were at ease and chatting with John straightaway as he showed us our wing and oriented us with our space. Being as we were in Brookings with the desire to learn as much about the town as possible lead us to seek out our hosts for conversation about the town, or tech, or art and hobbies...in the end, really, we just had the best time chilling out with our hosts over wine and cocktails when the two of us returned from forays into the stormy days. Sitting around the fire in the great room gazing out onto the coast without any concerns, just relaxing, was carefree and cozy. John's breakfasts, truly served on the guest's timetable, were sumptuously diverse and he drips the.most.awesome.coffee!
It was so cool to have good conversation with the folks who created this most excellent and comfortable ocean ashram of hospitality! I guess I'm biased, and even guilty of gushing, because we had a really killer time interacting with John, Nancy and Arnie intermittently during our stay.

We left Mermaid's Muse feeling like we had unexpectedly made new friends AND had totally enjoyed a private,romantic getaway with ample Brookings fact-finding tossed in!

Oh, and the hot tub at dawn in the midst of the roar of a winter rainstorm approaches "operatic" in its theatricality and bold decadence! Opium Den's bed is a vacation all on its own!

Mermaid's Muse is Awesome!

“Breathtaking views, warm hospitality”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The lodging and hospitality exceeded our expectations. From the views, to the harbor and beaches within walking distance, to the recommendations for short drives and restaurants, the experience was great. One of the best was sitting in the hot tub, looking at the stars and listening to the surf. A great place to stay.

“Loved the hot tub!”

My husband and I stayed at Mermaid's Muse as part of a road trip for our honeymoon and had a really nice time. John and Nancy are very welcoming, and we enjoyed chatting with them over a G & T in the evening and over breakfast the next day! Best though is the hot tub, which looks out over the ocean- perfect after a long day's drive!

We would recommend staying at Mermaid's Muse, however, unlike some of the posters, we would say that we were aware we were staying in someone's house. We had a separate bathroom and a (very comfy) bedroom in a separate section of the house, but there was a sense of staying with friends or your favourite relative, rather than in a hotel! It wasn't a problem for us at all, and I suspect most people will enjoy John and Nancy's company anyway!

Liked best: The hot tub!
Liked least: We were able to hear Nancy getting up for work- not a problem for us as we wanted a relatively early start, but might disrupt lighter sleepers wanting a lie in.

This was our first B&B experience and we were a little nervous about spending the night in someone else's house. First off, John and Nancy are incredibly nice, fun and interesting people. They provide hospitality up to YOUR comfort level. Happy hour, breakfast, hot tub that looks out to the ocean, which is BEAUTIFUL, Can you ask for much more? The bed is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, with the exception of my actual bed, this tops them all. I highly recommend this B&B to everyone I know and to you as well. You will not be disappointed! We plan on going back soon! The price can't be beat either for all that is available to you. We appreciated our hosts, thier home and we had the greatest time celebrating our 15th anniversary/Shyla's Birthday. We will definitely be back!

Nancy and I are enthralled by getting reviews such as yours. We feel a special responsibility to make everything as perfect as possible, when we become aware it is a couple's first venture into the B&B experience. At the same time, we are quick to point out that we typically entertain only one or two couples at a time, so be sure and try out some of the larger ones for another rewarding type of social interaction. Thanks for the positive feedback and making our day!
