“Too short a stay for too nice a place!”
Reviewed 23 July 2011

Susie and Bill are the penultimate hosts. Their property is well appointed and beautifully situated on the coast. The short walk to the shore through their delightful garden and pathway through the gorse to "the longest beach in the world" was a pleasure. Now, as to breakfast---my goodness - we didn't need to eat another thing all day. Simply delicious!

Nice location and environment though not right next to the beach per se. The hosts clearly know how to provide excellent service. The rooms are very cute, the beds great (we spent one night each in two different rooms) and the breakfasts were top of the line.

My wife and I have been going to Bed and Breakfasts for twelve years. Boreas was one of our first, and it is the only one we've gone back to. We've tried a lot of others - but always end up going back to Boreas. We've been going there as often as we can afford and fit into our life since.

The inn is wonderful. It has all the luxurious amenities you hope for. Pillow-soft feather beds with high quality sheets, beautiful robes, a fresh tray of brownies, a massive jar of pistachios for snacking, a beautiful hot-tub looking out to the ocean. But it's also very relaxed and comfortable. (Some fancy B&Bs feel stuffy, like you are afraid to really sit down and just be.)

The location - the long beach peninsula - is wonderful. Long Beach is a much less commercialized beach town. It's small and fun. But you'll be surprised to find a shocking number of exceptional restaurants. I don't know if chefs retire to the peninsula or what, but it's amazing. The beach is beautiful - and best of all - you can drive on it.

But most importantly, the innkeepers, are perfect. Bill & Susie have mastered the art of hospitality. They know when to be present and attending to your needs, and when to make themselves scarce. They cook the best breakfast we've ever had, with care for every ingredient. They are fun, and friendly, knowledgable and treat us like long-lost well-loved relatives.

If you haven't tried Boreas, you should. It's well worth the cost and the drive. It's an amazing place with amazing people.

Room Tip: Call ahead.

We stayed in the Yett House next to the Inn. We had our own parking spot! The cottage is lovely, and well appointed, the beds cozy and comfortable. The kitchen is very cabin-y, but everything you need is there. It is perfect for families, especially the private fenced yard for running around. The proprietors are kind, helpful, and attentive. I have nothing negative to say, but if you stay there, take good care of it, we want to come again!!!

We enjoyed our stay at the inn. It was so relaxing. The bed was so soft it was like sleeping on clouds. We slept with the window open & listened to the waves crashing all night. The hosts have thought of absolutely everything you might want or need. You have complete access to the kitchen at night & brownes, nuts & candy left out for snacking. They have a beautiful gathering room full of magizines, books, cds, dvds & a telescope for everyone to use. We had complete privacy in the evening from the innkeepers, we only saw the hosts in the morning at the fabulous breakfasts. Both Susie & Bill are fantastic cooks. We have never eaten such amazing breakfasts. The breakfasts are course after course of the best food you have ever eaten. The hosts also made dinner reservations for us at 2 very delicious restaurants & gave us coupons to use at both places. 42nd street cafe was our favorite (it had the best service as well as great food), but the Depot was also excellent.

My husband and I came across this B&B after arriving at Long Beach on a last minute decision to get out of town for the weekend. After driving around and looking at different spots to stay , we pulled up at the Boreas because it looked nice from the outside and Suzie was standing out front so we stopped with the last minute question "do you have a room for the night?"
Thankfully she did and the rest is history. We LOVED the place, it's warmth, location and great food. The only drawback is that we could just stay the night, but it was a wonderful, relaxing experience and we will definately return soon.
