Mums 80th and what does a family do?
Meet in Philadelphia from all around the world, fly to LAX and jump on Amtrak's Coast Starlight to Portland.
After an unreal trip via rail and sleeping berths with-in, on the Coast Starlight; our first stop was the Gilbert for a full bed and a real shower.
We were out of season and yet the extremely generous and hospitable owner opened up for us. We filled all of her guests rooms and by day when we were in; we filled it's public spaces.
Our stay was about the area and the beach but we all enjoyed the warmth and attention to detail with in the Inn itself.
The rooms are decorated in a modern yet Victorian style.
The shower was great, tea making and coffee facilities with biscotti complimentary in all of our rooms and refreshed daily.
The little town of Seaside was fun to walk about and restaurants and coffee shops are abundant and open even out of season.
For anyone seeking a little get away where you feel like you are staying in the comfort of an eccentric Victorian relative's home.................this is for you.
The Inn is really adult.
I do not think you or other guests would be comfortable with kids screaming about the place so best for couples or even an individual looking for a little 'me' time and quality R&R.
We loved it.
