4th of July in Long Beach, WA– Boreas has Front-Row Seats for Fireworks!

June 23rd, 2011 by Susie Goldsmith

Boreas Inn still has a couple of really beautiful rooms open for the 4th of July holiday weekend!  Since the 4th is on a Monday, a few of our guests coming for the weekend are actually leaving right on the 4th–so we have a couple rooms open on the 4th proper in addition to the 1st and 2nd of July.  This is NEXT weekend–wow!  We are asking for a three-night minimum over the weekend, but as we approach the holiday, we will compromise on two-night stays, if we must, but three nights is so relaxing at Boreas!

We love the 4th of July in Long Beach, Washington.  Well–sort of.  It is clearly the most exciting day of the year on the gorgeous Long Beach Peninsula.  We would love it more if all the people packed out what they pack in. (Our Boreas guests are always perfect–it’s the other 20,0000 guests on the Peninsula who aren’t so perfect!)  The Long Beach Peninsula is truly a place for amateur and professional pyromaniacs!

To address this post-explosive and partying beach clean-up problem on the 4th of July on the Long Beach Peninsula, there are now “Treasure Our Beach” volunteers at all the beach approaches, handing out trash bags and fliers encouraging everyone who comes to the beach to picnic and blow things up, to take their trash home with them!  We treasure our Treasure our Beach volunteers.  Thank you all!  If any of our readers would like to help in this effort, please let us know.  Shelly Pollock’s Grass Roots Garbage Gang will have hundreds of volunteers combing the beaches on July 5th to pick up after the 4th of July revelers and we are grateful to those volunteers also!   This is a big beach clean-up and we always need more volunteers!

Well first of all, on Saturday, the 2nd of July, to lead off the pyrotechnic displays, there is a stunning and sparkly professional fireworks show on the Port of Ilwaco over the harbor.  We like to reserve tables for our guests at Pelicano on Saturday at the Port of Ilwaco, before the 4th so that they have front row seats for the Ilwaco Fireworks display.  So in addition to wine pairings at Pelicano that evening, there are fireworks pairings also!  If you have dinner at Pelicano, you will also have a place to park right on the harbor for the fireworks. It is truly inspiring to see the glittering on the water and this display just whets the appetite for the total pyrotechnic craziness that is the true 4th of July in Long Beach, WA.  We’ve never seen anything quite like Long Beach on the 4th.  So there is a method to our madness–we like our guests to dine on the best for breakfast and dinner and watch the celebration of our nation’s independence!

We brag about our 28-mile long beach.  Well just about every foot of our very long beach will be filled with cars, families, picnics and We’d estimate–millions of dollars of fireworks that will blow your socks off.  This doesn’t include the very fine professional show that happens at dark on the ocean-end of the Bolstad Beach approach five blocks south of Boreas Inn.  It’s all FREE and quite insane.  Stay on the boardwalk or sit in the back yard of Boreas Inn, (the hot tub has a great view) and stay a safe distance from all the pyromaniacs and you will have a great time in Long Beach, Washington on the 4th of July, 2011.   I found a video taken by visitors to the Peninsula last year and you can get a little idea of what it’s like in front of Boreas Inn on the 4th.  Hang onto your sparklers, baby!

Grab our last rooms and watch the 2nd and 4th of July shows at Boreas Bed and Breakfast Inn on the lovely Long Beach Peninsula!

We’re Always Cooking Up a Storm at Boreas B&B in Long Beach, Washington

May 21st, 2011 by Susie Goldsmith

Odell Hathaway, our guest/friend/budding videographer likes to take pics and video of me doing the “Food Tour” at breakfast time.  You might be able to focus on the food in the video while I am focusing on my ever-drooping face!  Both are entertaining.  In this video, I have prepared breakfast for a small group of returning guests a couple of weekends ago. Bill was in Eugene for the weekend and I had our guests/friends all to myself!  The baked apple french toast I am describing is an adapted recipe originally from The Shelburne Inn, our dear friends, David and Laurie.  I love making this dish–something you can put together the night before and bake in the morning.  Thanks to Odell for posting this video to YouTube!  Come to Boreas Inn–we have availability over Memorial Day weekend—which is NEXT weekend.  We promise to make you very happy indeed at our Long Beach Washington Bed and Breakfast.  Boreas inn is upscale, but never pretentious!

Boreas Inn’s New Hot Tub–Best Spa on the Beach!

May 18th, 2011 by Susie Goldsmith

Soak your troubles away in our new hot tub, located with a view to the dunes and ocean….there are eagles, osprey, deer and invisible bears (at least I’ve never seen them, but apparently they are around)! So I finally remembered how to upload a YouTube video to the Blog! Odell Hathaway produced this darling little video and added very auspicious music.  This spa makes going to Boreas Inn, our Bed and Breakfast on the Southwest Washington even more wonderful.  We are looking for guests this weekend…great weather, fabulous gourmet breakfast, local dining that exceeds anyone’s wildest dreams…we can make it happen for you!

We also have availability over Memorial Day weekend (3 days will make you very happy).   So come visit us and have very private time in our new spa.  Remember, there is a single key that assures you total privacy in the spa.  Light the candle and put it in the window…and make time just for you!

Winter Sunset at Boreas Inn, Long Beach, Washington!

January 19th, 2011 by Susie Goldsmith

Glorious Sunsets on Long Beach

We have the gift of unmatched sunsets at the Inn

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 Weather Outside is Frightful!

January 11th, 2011 by Susie Goldsmith

Winter months are the best for viewing the surf from your car at Cape D.

It’s blowing hard in Long Beach, Washington. The weather is stormy, cold and for awhile this afternoon, the snowflakes were waltzing in all directions with the wind gusts directing their ballet!  It was a joyful dance.  Now it’s much warmer, 36,  and rainy with gusty winds up to 30 or so.  We had a relaxing holiday season with mellow guests and fireplaces crackling. Now it’s calm and far too peaceful, except for the weather.  So the inn is getting painted, a little at a time by Bill.  This weekend is looking quieter than most MLK weekends are.  Ask for our Walk-in Special if you are very last minute in making plans!  We are ready for guests…and we hope that they come!  We have a few rooms remaining for Valentine’s Day weekend, February 11,12  and President’s Day weekend 18, 19, 20.  I have been blocking out rooms for the Kite Festival and we have two upstairs rooms open for the week of August 14-21.  The Stargazer is open the 18,19,20 of August for a three night stay.   I know it’s far from now…but as they say, I’m just sayin’…!
