This stay marked our second visit to the Awtrey House (to celebrate a birthday) and it was just as beautiful as we remembered.
We took advantage of every facet of our room which included: a large deep soaker tub (with stunning view of the ocean), a luxurious king-sized bed (with the most comfortable mattress ever made), private deck complete with lounging chairs and plush blankets so we could sit out and gaze at the stars, not to mention the amazing coffee maker and awesome shower with rainforest shower head.
The food Dennis served was outstanding, everything prepared for breakfast each day was made using locally grown produce, tasted delicious and no one went away hungry.
During the four days we stayed at the B&B, the mornings were misty, but turned sunny in the mid-afternoon - the beaches were virtually deserted and we felt like we had the whole of Manzanita to ourselves.
This trip we felt like we had budgeted the right amount of time because there is a lot in the area to see and do. We intentionally reserved our last day for beach walking and enjoying our private deck -- the beach directly below the Awtrey House is so expansive, we walked for 2-hours in one direction without seeing another person, the rolling waves and the white sand beach makes for both a tranquil and relaxing walk.
At this time of year, not all the stores are open on Monday/Tuesday, that was the only odd thing we encountered as it is off peak season. There were limited dining options in Manzanita; however, adjacent towns, only a short car ride away offered some more menu selections/variety.
We ended our visit at the Awtrey House feeling amazingly relaxed and refreshed, the setting is so beautiful, the room has every comfort that a person could hope for and the hosts are warm and welcoming and the food is fantastic (as noted by the other glowing reviews on this site).
