“Book Now Before There is a Ten Year Waiting List!!!!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

This is, hands down, the most amazing place I have ever stayed-and I have stayed at some extraordinary places! The beauty of the surroundings is surreal-ocean, pine trees, sky that goes on for days. The rooms were spectacular-tubs that are like swimming pools with a view out the window, a bed so comfortable you never want to leave-especially with the view, a private patio-and did I mention the view?
Add to that the beyond compare hosts Dennis and Peggy. He is an ex-basketball player who has a great stories and cooks the best breakfasts you have ever had. She is an elegant and gracious hostess-together they are the perfect couple.
We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back. ANd I'm not kidding about the wait list.. They only have two rooms so book now!

My husband and I spent three nights at this ultra-modern, ultra-luxurious, and ultra-romantic B&B on the north end of Manzanita as part of our 5th year anniversary celebration. As typical for the Oregon coast, we had sunny, stormy, and misty weather within that timespan, and we loved Awtrey House during all kinds of meteorological moods. When it was sunny, we enjoyed sitting out on our private terrace gazing at the wide expanse of Manzanita beach. On colder wetter evenings, we enjoyed hearing the rain beat down on the roof while we had the woodstove burning. And when it was clear, we loved watching the moon rise and set over the ocean while stargazing. The two person deep soaking tub was a nice touch too to be able to sit in the tub and look out on the ocean. Other amenities were equally high-end. Dennis and Peggy are splendid hosts - we so enjoyed the gourmet breakfasts made with local ingredients and being regaled by Dennis with his NBA stories. We couldn't see the sunset directly from the room but Dennis and Peggy are very gracious and welcoming with having guests sit on the main house terrace to watch it. Manzanita is a sleepier town than Cannon Beach but is very charming with lots of boutique stores, a very well-stocked grocery store, restaurants, and a huge beach that is great for strolling, walking, or running. We were just 10-15 mins drive from Cannon Beach, and also close to Tillmook and other attractions to the south. Stay at this gorgeous property for a romantic getaway - you won't regret it!

The Awtrey House is by far the most impressive B&B we have stayed at. Modern, stylish, yet comfortable, luxury everywhere. From both rooms you have beautiful views over the ocean. Dennis is a wonderful host (unfortunately, Peggy was gone during the time we stayed there) spoiling his guests not only with amazing breakfasts but sharing his time with you whenever you should wish so. We had an unforgettable time and will certainly be back when we travel Oregon again.

Room Tip: Apart from the paintings on the wall both rooms are identically equipped and have the exact same vie...

Top notch in every way. Beautiful Modern architecture by Cutler enhanced with art from local artist Pam Greene made for a very comfortable room. Luxury linens. Beautiful view. Bath large enough for two while maintaining that view. Espresso maker in the room, with more then a dozen flavors of espresso. Fire place for the cold nights. The hosts Dennis and Peggy are great. The breakfast was gourmet. Conversation inviting. The environment was the warmest my wife and I found right on the northern Oregon coast. The sun was shining there when the clouds covered the surrounding coast line. It was awesome! Perfect place to pamper yourself and relax.

The house is gorgeous and modern - no doilies, the accommodations provided more comforts than most people have at home, and the hosts were warm and inviting. The two guest rooms offer hotel privacy with separate entrances. We have traveled extensively and Awtrey House is our favorite and most memorable lodging experience. We will stay again and highly recommend Awtrey House for anyone wishing to experience the beautiful Oregon coast.

This is the best B&B my wife and I have experienced. Our hosts, Dennis and Peggy, are great fun and were always making sure we were well taken care of. They also make an awesome breakfast. Don't expect doilies and antiques. The architecture is superbly modern, furnishings are comfortable and the views outstanding. A lot of thought went into this house. Before we left, my wife and I agreed we will be back. Thank you Dennis and Peggy!!!!

My husband and I traveled to the Oregon coast for the first time with some friends. We stayed 3 nights in the most beautiful setting that we found it very hard to leave! The 2 rooms are gorgeous - comfortable beds, a wood buring stove, luxury amenities, and best of all, an incredible view of the ocean. We left our window opened every night so we could hear the ocean - so peaceful. I would be remiss if I didn't mention Dennis and Peggy's fantastic breakfasts. Not your usual fare - if you go, insist that Dennis make you the crab quiche. The Awtrey's are great hosts - warm and friendly but not obtrusive. When we plan our next trip to Oregon, this B&B will be our home base.
