Thank you for picking Boreas Inn on KING 5 TV’s Northwest Best Escapes as one of the “Top 5″ Bed and Breakfasts! We are thrilled to be among the winning group and know that without our guests’ wonderful reviews and votes, that we would not be named with such worthy inns. This is a great reward and knowing that we are appreciated is truly the best thanks we could have, other than a fully occupied inn! Come visit and help us celebrate being a Long Beach, Washington Best Escape! Adding to the KING 5 “Northwest Best Escapes” awards, Long Beach was voted “BEST BEACH” and the Boardwalk in Long Beach was voted “Best Place to Kiss”. The North Head Lighthouse was voted #2 “Best Lighthouse” and the Cape Disappointment Lighthouse was voted #3 “Best Lighthouse”. So in summary, Boreas is on the Best Beach and five blocks from the “Best Place to Kiss” and 10 minutes from two of the best lighthouses! How cool is that? Thank you to KING 5!

These guys can play!
Northern Departure, a new bluegrass band based out of Seattle, is composed of four extremely talented young men who play with their hearts. Their intricate banjo, guitar and fiddle music will make you HAPPY. It’s hard to believe they haven’t played together for years! I listened to their music on YouTube and was blown away by their talent. So come stay at Boreas Inn March 27, 28, 29th and attend the 5th annual Long Beach Blue Grass Festival. Along with Northern Departure, Charlie Sizemore, Lee Highway, the Cascade Mountain Boys, Old Circle, Ferm Hill, Runway Train and a couple of other banjo picking, fiddling, singing, guitar playing geniuses will be lining up to entertain you. There will be 20 45- minute sets, workshops, jams and a band scramble. Sunday morning is all gospel. The entire festival is within a mile of the Inn, so if you play or sing, bring your voice, your instrument and your sweetheart and have a ball. We will take care of making your dinner reservations! This will be a weekend to remember–you will forget your troubles and tap your toes until they hurt. Eat the finest breakfast around after you snuggle down and sleep in your lofty featherbed at Boreas Inn. This event is just one of many festivals on the Long Beach Washington Peninsula. There is always something happening here! Reserve early!! Mention this blog and you will receive $25 per night discount on a two night minimum stay!

For years we had famous hand-thrown Deneen Mugs (Cloth & Clay was the original company name). We recently decided to re-design the mugs with our logo instead of the pen and ink rendition of the inn, and in working with the talented staff at Deneen Pottery, we came up with new mugs! They are simply gorgeous. We picked two different color combinations: dark blue with hunter white marbling and dark blue with pale blue/white marbling. We have them on sale for $17.95 per mug or $34 for two. Deneen Pottery ‘s head honcho, Niles Deneen, is a joy to work with. We are so tickled with the three dimensional depth of the logo and the photo’s I took do not do the work justice. Being hand-thrown, these mugs are painstakingly hand-crafted. A rarity in today’s outsourced world! If you’d like a mug, we can send them to you! (We have to add $8.00 for shipping plus tax.) Please let us know if you’d like one or two. They are collectible. We may soon be having a special with a free mug for a two night stay! So watch for that! Check out my “Mug Shot”!

This weekend promises to be another fine World Kite Museum event in Long Beach, Washington! To honor Chinese New Year, “China Then and Now” is a celebration taking place on February 7th and 8th from 10 am-4 pm at the World Kite Museum, right down the street from Boreas Inn. There will be exhibits including Chinese kites, puppets, stamps, hand painted silk and bamboo kites and photographs. You will be able to participate in cultural and artistic events. There will be Mah Jong games with demonstrations and “Make it and Take It” Projects with some of our finest local artists. You can learn to make Asian Greeting Cards with Annie Unwin, discover Sumic Painting with Chris Goodwin and the Kite Museum staff and volunteers will guide you in Chinese lantern making, Chinese knotting and Red Paper Cutting. So if you would like to see, experience and even take home a project that you have made, this event promises to be not only visually beautiful, but a fun and interesting experience in making your own souvenirs! It’s been warm and beautiful at the beach, so come experience a unique mid-winter weekend in Long Beach. We have a couple of openings at the inn and will set up your dinners at our local favorite spots. This will be a glorious weekend! (There is also a clam dig this weekend!)

Bill and I just went for a very long walk in beautiful warm December weather. The beach was empty except for people in the distance. The surf looked perfect for riding waves and indeed there were sea lions surfing out on the large clean-breaking line of surf. Crabbing season opened this week and we spotted a number of crab boats and crab pot floats. We can’t wait to sample the Dungeness crab this weekend! We will be having our annual Decorating Party this weekend and have found a lush Hannukah Bush (aka Christmas Tree) to decorate. There are cedar boughs already decorating the outside of the inn along with our usual twinkling white lites and some holiday red and green lights. Last night, we were treated to dinner by Mary Berscheidt, one of our dearest guests, at one of our very favorite restaurants in the Pacific Northwest, The Port Bistro. The chop salad and the “baseball cut” New York Steak was perfect and the new dessert menu was tempting. Indeed, we gave into temptation. Bill had the flourless chocolate cake, I had the Port Wine Berry Cobbler and Mary had the triple sorbets made with fresh fruit. We had a much-needed wonderful time and our friends, Larry and Jennifer, the chef/owners, were able to spend some time with us. We have rooms left for after Christmas and our New Years’ Crabcake and Champagne Brunch. We can’t guarantee this beautiful weather–but it’s always beautiful at Boreas!
