Where else can you behold such open space on a beach anywhere in the country with a glorious winter sunset as the highlight of your day? Tonight the full moon will glisten off the water…with clear skies and a winter nip in the air… Come to a place where you will find beautiful surroundings, a beach that goes on forever, culminating in headlands with lighthouses, walking trails and bicycle paths along the ocean and through the wooded parklands. There is always something to entertain you whether visually, physically or spiritually–or all three at once. When you tire of that, you can sleep like a baby in the most comfortable beds with down over you and under you, dine on a breakfast that will last all day long, and perhaps just do nothing…until dinner of course, when you again DINE at the finest restaurants on Oregon/Washington coast. You work so that you can play! So play in Long Beach, Washington….a seriously perfect place to escape from the rest of the world. Boreas Inn is here for you! Come enjoy the sunsets. (Or when those aren’t available, enjoy the sound of the rain and the cozy fireplaces!)

The Goonies 25th Anniversary Celebration will take place across the River in Astoria from June 4-7, 2010. The Goonies was filmed locally in Astoria, OR and was originally released on June 7, 1985. But did you know that the Goonie’s director, Richard Donner, also directed Superman and The Lethal Weapon series and that it was a Steven Spielberg (E.T., Jaws, Schindler’s List) presentation? The Goonies screenplay was by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter series, Mrs. Doubtfire) from a story by Spielberg. Richard Donner produced the movie with Harvey Bernhard (The Lost Boys) and Spielberg executive produced with Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy (Indiana Jones series, Back to the Future, Curious Case of Benjamin Button). Clearly, The Goonies had a group of young geniuses masterminding a movie that has stood the test of time and is much beloved by fans around the world.
“In 1985 when The Goonies was filmed, we knew the movie would create a lasting impact in Astoria, and its legacy continues 25 years later,” stated Willis Van Dusen, Mayor of Astoria, Oregon. “This celebration is dedicated to the amazing Goonies fans and to the film itself, both of which have become an integral part of the cultural fabric of Astoria.” Well–that can’t be a bad thing, after all, The Goonies has given us pleasure, excitement and giggles for 25 years!
The Goonies is an adventure-comedy film set in Astoria about a group of kids from the “Goon Docks” neighborhood of Astoria (hence the nickname “Goonies) who band together hoping to save their homes from foreclosure and demolition due to the expansion of the Astoria Country Club. The group embarks on an adventure to find the buried treasure of a legendary 17th century pirate, One-Eyed Willy. The kids have an exciting time on their coastal antics featuring spooky caves, old lighthouses, treacherous traps, pirate maps and skeletons, clever script and much beloved characters– Mikey, Chunk, Data, Mouth (Corey Feldman), Brandon (Josh Brolin!) Rosalita and the rest of the nasty Fratelli’s. The ending of The Goonies is classic, perfect and predictable with the jewels from the pirate ship providing more than enough to save everyone’s homes from foreclosure and demolition. The story and its ending could also ring true for homeowners battling their individual crises during our nation’s current “Great Recession”! If only we could plunder a pirate ship and bail out everyone losing their homes–or better yet, bail out those of us running small businesses! Let’s all go search for treasure!
The Goonies 25th Anniversary Celebration has a schedule of events in Astoria and a very cool website. The Astoria-Warrenton Chamber, of which we are proud members, is partnering with Warner Brothers on the event who are assisting in marketing and licensing Goonies souvenirs, which will be sold at the “Goon Docks”, the center of all the Goonies Celebration events. Boreas has rooms available for the celebration weekend so you can be at the beach but be within a half- hour of all the events. Watch a video clip of The Goonies and come to Boreas for the Goonie’s celebration!

We will be having a full house at Boreas Inn this weekend. The inn will be bustling full of Santa’s helpers! Each year, our loyal guests come to Boreas on the first weekend of December to work and eat (and get a free night!) and make the Inn beautiful for the holidays. We drag out the decorations and make the tree (this year a perfect Noble Fir) beautiful. We call it a Hanukkah Bush/Christmas Tree to be inclusive! We will not be holding our traditional Open House on the second weekend of the year, but will be open for informal tours and will hopefully be finding a time when the Long Beach Peninsula Visitor’s Bureau volunteers can come to Boreas for a Open House to thank them for their work! Cindy and Robert Davis, Walter and Tracey Voll, Fred Humphrey, Odell Hathaway, Su and Ray Benson are among long-time Boreas friends and loved ones. Jessica and Chris Miller will also be helping out. Chris is the new school district psychologist and Jessica is a teacher who helped us out over the summertime. They moved here in June from Colorado and we have adopted them. We are looking forward to the decorating, the potluck and the company. So come see Boreas Inn decorated for the holidays. We have rooms open for Christmas and for our New Years three day holiday weekend. Take advantage of our “Walk-in” Special rate for all of December and January, except for one night over New Years’ when you will pay our regular price for that night.
