This is the most wonderful B & B to stay at on the Central Oregon Coast. They have 6 cozy rooms, a 7 course breakfast in the formal dining room, two parlors to relax in, The fresh sea air, beautiful views, wonderful walks on the beach, beautiful landscaped yards, wonderful staff. The most relaxing, beautiful stay! Beach views, light house view, tours, just a blissful experience for those with discerning taste.

“loads of fun and history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

This little Big lighthouse is very historic and cool to go through. Neat souvenirs in the basement and friendly docents. As always the prices are a bit high for trinkets but that's to be expected. Nice park out front with wonderful views and right off Hwy 101. quick and easy. Well worth the time and the kids will enjoy it. One of the only light houses that have NO access to the actual light on top so be prepared to be disappointed there.

“Great Interpretive Center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

The BLM park staff was so helpful - without asking, they provided a special remote to access the harbor seal cove (to avoid walking the steep decline) because we had a 90+ yr old in our party. Very windy at the lighthouse, but wonderful views.

“Another Great Stop on Hwy 101”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Located in a small State Park overlooking the Yaquina Bridge this is an easy & accessible Light House to view on the Oregon Coast. It appears from other reviews I should be calling this a Typical day ? But you travel in Winter , you get what you got ! Well worth a little break from the road and would be great on a nice day.

“Spectacular Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

This is a very old and still working lighthouse. The views from here are so beautiful and there is hiking and a museum as well. You can also view the seals sunning themselves on the rocks offshore.
