What can I possibly say about the Heceta Lighthouse B & B that hasn't already been said? The setting is spectacular, the quarters are comfortable, and the seven course breakfast was memorable. I would imagine that the setting would be spectacular in any kind of weather but we were blessed with blue skys and calm winds making it all the more memorable. One of the things not to be missed is a hike up to the lighthouse at night. Watching from the base of the lighthouse as the light flashed along the coast line and beamed 21 miles out to sea in the dark, was unforgettable. If you plan to stay here keep in mind that the closest places to eat dinner are in Florence 12 miles to the south or Yachats 14 miles to the north. Don't let that stop you from staying at this wonderful B & B, but plan accordingly.

We spent two nights here and enjoyed our stay hugely.

The secluded B&B, the former lightkeepers' cottage, is situated beautifully on the clifftop, a short walk down from the lighthouse itself. The view of the ocean from the wooden porch is spectacular and a short path takes you down through the trees to a quiet beach.

The house itself, built in 1894, is impressive and well maintained. There are comfortable living rooms downstairs with antique furniture and old photos of the area, available for use by guests. There are also two permanent residents, the two lighthouse cats.

We stayed in the cozy 'lightkeepers room' which had a great view of the light. Other rooms have views of the ocean. All have private bathrooms though the lightkeepers room's was across the hall. Each room also has a torch included for the highly recommended night walk up to the lighthouse.

The lightstation is highly regarded for its 7-course breakfast and we found it excellent. Courses range from fresh fruit to eggs to banana bread to bagels with salmon and cream cheese. Produce is fresh and local. However, the whole meal takes an hour and a half so don't plan for an early departure!

What can I say about a place where you walk outside your door and see thousands and thousands of stars while a light house beam grazes the side of the cliffs and sea below you? Where you can walk up to the lighthouse itself, a gentle 1/2 mile at night with a flash light? where the house cats come and curl up on your feet?

What can I say about a place that serves an elegant, enchanting nouvelle cuisine breakfast, is run by caring, kind staff, is spotlessly clean and yet historically preserved, allows you to light a fire in the parlor, pop some popcorn, sit on the porch and listen to the silence.

The rooms are beautiful (not huge but just lovely), and the whole house just feels special. If there was a ghost here (as they say on their web site) it was a kind and generous spirit. So worth the money, so priceless an experience, such wonderful staff.

Cannot say enough nice things. Go! you owe it to yourself.
