“Our place at the beach!!!”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Just got home and was happy to post a review! July 14 - 16, 2013 was our visit. It was absolutely wonderful. Sounds to good to be true, but really it is. We stayed in Charles room over looking Willapa Bay. Watched the sun come up. Breakfast was a yummy - and since my husband and I were the only two there for the stay - she treated us to our choice of food. We will go back, probably sooner than we had planned. The house was lovely, the yard was well cared for. Seriously, a truely wonderful vacation. Thank you Ginger!!!

Room Tip: if you want to look over Willapa Bay while sipping coffee and sitting in bed - Charles room is the o...

From the moment you meet Ginger (host/owner) upon check-in to the warm hug you get from her as you say goodbye, you understand that the Charles Nelson Guest House is very special. We rank it among the best Bed and Breakfast stays. The garden has impeccably manicured plants of every kind, and other features (e.g. a neat gazebo, pond) that draw your attention. It is beautifully adorned with unique antiques, and enticing and tranquil rooms, which instantly cleanse any of your worries from the outside world. This guesthouse can only be described enchanted. A vast selection of teas and coffees can be prepared when you want a cup at a time. The cuisine in the best neighborhood restaurants cannot match Ginger’s outstanding gourmet breakfasts with fresh fruits, juices, crepes, sautéed local oysters, omelets, and other delights, all carefully prepared in Ginger’s spacious kitchen. Only when you begin pondering where you will go for dinner does your appetite reappear. My wife enjoyed a relaxing soak in the tub after a long day of hikes. Slumber arrives quickly as you retire to one of the guest bedrooms. You awake to the noise of the seagulls and perchance, a view of the water on the tranquil bay. We suggest you visit outside of peak season, as we did, to truly enjoy this unique wonderland.

Room Tip: All the rooms have their individual charms.

Ginger! She's the best owner/operator of a bed and breakfast you could possibly ask for. She's a phenomenal cook, host and source of local information. I'd say she makes you feel at home but actually it's much better than home. I wish she was my mom!

Th rooms were also clean, well kept and beautifully appointed and then location of the property is central to an exploration of the peninsula and bay. Perfect all around!

This is the perfect B&B . We have stayed in dozens of B&B's over the last 30 years ...throughout the world. And this gem is what everyone in the business should strive for...and every guest should wish for.! The house is full of of old quilts and special touches and the garden , which was in full bloom, was not only peaceful but could be featured in any garden show . Ginger's breakfast of fresh oysters was unusual and very delicious . . We arrived after a long road trip and I had been sick..... I can't thank Ginger enough for her kindness and her heavenly respite.

Room Tip: Any room will be lovely...

We travel the world and have decided that this B & B is our favorite. Everything about the house, food, comfort, area and owners makes it a wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: All three rooms are beautiful. We stayed in the Elsa Room with the King Size Bed.

For my husbands two weeks R&R we stayed at this lovely B&B. Attention to detail with lots of love was obviouse throughout the entire home. Ginger proved to be a gracious host and what a cook, be prepared for large portions too. I forgot my little fan I take to help me sleep (white noise), so I was haapy to find a fan in the closet... Sleep was not a problem, and the bed in Nancy's room was very comfortable.
We travel with our two Papillons, which Ginger welcomed like her own dogs. I look forward to visiting/staying here again someday soon.

It was if we stayed at my moms, but without the drama... So be prepared for a hug and lots of love.
