Book Group Haven
For something like 20 years book groups of which I have been apart having been retreating to this charming and delightful hotel on the Oregon Coast. The reading room on the 3rd floor, with windows overlooking the ocean, is the perfect place to unwind. Pick an author themed room, with a comfy chair and a view (i.e. Jane Austen, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Herman Melville) and you're all set! Now ... how I wish to give, what is truly my favorite coast setting, a 5 star rating - for previous visits I certainly would have. However, the carpet in my room was badly stained (or dirty), as was the upholstered chair in the room of one member of our group. I am sure it's been a busy season, and I was told that the hotel would soon be closing for a week for cleaning, but (in my view) some things need ongoing attention. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The staff are welcoming and solicitous. I really do love this hotel and can't wait for my next visit.
judging this book by it’s cover
We found this quaint B and B on a site for Itineraries of the OR coast. Without a doubt the location is simply idyllic. On a cliff overlooking a vast stretch of Nye Beach. Little shops and restaurants in walking distance. Great period decor. However, for us that was where the charm stopped. Very austere in presentation, they let you know there are no TVs, internet or cell. THere’s also no fun! We’re not looking for noise or even electronics, but this place is like staying in a library. It was so stilted that it actually felt controlling. We love reading and always advocate books but this was simply oppressive in atmosphere. They didn’t even provide shampoo. You had to buy it at their gift shop. Really? Also the windows don’t stay open and it was quite warm during the night. Please fix the windows, change the mini blinds to room darkening shades and provide shampoo.
Nye Beach , The Sylvia Beach Hotel
Charming place for those of us who don’t care for TV. (But enjoy the written word and, writing). Actually this trip I for one, was after a magic ring. A ruby ring. It will soon be mine. With all the powers of rubies tied around my finger to remind me of my quest when I might forget. Stayed at The Sylvia and enjoyed Nye Beach. Comfy room. The hotel, the cat, the books and the views. The bakery too. Everything was perfect!
Quaint, Charming hotel
If you are looking for a different hotel experience, this is it! This lovely old hotel boasts Author themed rooms. We stayed in the Emily Dickinson room, but the owners leave all the room doors open so you can peak inside. There is a great library on the 3rd floor with a balcony overlooking the ocean. No TV. No WiFi. No Elevators. Just books and conversation. Make sure you make a dinner reservation in their dining room - Tables of Contents. Wonderful meal with delightful companions. Breakfast is included in the room rate.
A book lovers delight
This sweet old fashioned inn is dedicated to bibliophiles. Each guest room is named for and decorated in the style of a different author. The Inn is right on the beach in a tiny little beach town. The breakfast was amazing!
