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. We have included our Annual Dungeness Crab Cake and Champagne Breakfast for New Years’ Day! Make your reservations now! We would love to see you!

Boreas Inn has been touted by guests in reviews on Trip Advisor and BedandBreakfast.com as having the best breakfasts! Here’s one such review. “Starting at 9:30 and lasting for at least 1 1/2 hours, they fed us the most wonderful, tasty meals that were really “brunch”. We started with fruit and sweets with Susie’s homemade sauces, then we were presented with Bill’s platter of pancakes, meat, fritatta,
or other entree of the morning. This always held us over until we went to dinner at the best restaurants in the area that had been reserved for us in advance by Susie.”
Since you will indeed be feeling well-fed until dinner time, let us set up your dinners! The Depot Restaurant’s clam chowder, with each bowl beautifully hand-crafted, has been receiving the “best clam chowder I’ve ever had” reviews from our guests for years. It’s no surprise! Chef Michael and his team steam the Willapa clams for each bowl and add the razor clams and freshly sauteed veggies just for your bowl of chowder! We love the philosophy of hand-crafted local foods, made with attention to detail with the love of the art of fine cuisine as demonstated by our local Chefs, particularly at The Depot, Pelicano, the 42nd Street Cafe and The Shelburne Restaurant and Pub.
“Dining At The Source” is what it’s all about here on the Long Beach Peninsula. Fresh, local ingredients and the passion for cooking are evident not only at Boreas Inn. The variety of “the best” grilled steaks, seafood and fresh specials makes The Depot, especially when we reserve the Chef’s Table for our guests, a top pick of our guests along with Pelicano Restaurant on the Port of Ilwaco. Pelicano receives top reviews for their variations on their fried fresh Willapa Bay oysters and the deliciously crisp, perfectly balanced Caesar salad, one of my favorite combinations. Order them as appetizers and you get a full meal deal for $16. Then you have room for Chocolate Pot au Creme for dessert. The most decadent dark chocolate preparation available on the peninsula. The 42nd Street Cafe has Jean Marc, the waiter extraordinaire, exotic daily changing seafood stews, pot roast like your mom used to make (well maybe….) and THE BEST sturgeon preparation when in season! I could go on and on about our local restaurants, the wait staff, chefs and dear friends who are the proprietors. You have to eat it to believe it! Experience our wild winter weather, beautiful holiday decor (going up with help from guests on December 6th) and our annual New Years’ Day Crabcake and Champagne Brunch, offered at no extra charge to our guests! We will set up everything to make your stay simply perfect! We have a couple of openings left for Thanksgiving and lots of rooms available for Christmas and afterwards. Relax by the fire places and dine on the best cuisine the Pacific Northwest has to offer! Boreas Inn was chosen as the Top Five Best B&B’s by KING 5 TV “Northwest Best Getaways” in 2009!

In the Pacific Northwest, sometimes you need only to drive a short distance and you’re in another world. Such is the case when we have guests from Astoria, Oregon, a quick 15 mile drive from the Long Beach Peninsula. This year, we have neighbors from Astoria visiting Boreas for our 8th Annual Wild Mushroom Festival, Holly Owen and her husband Matthew Stanley. Holly is employed by Quality Assurance International, based out of southern California. QAI oversees organic farms and processors of organic foods to make certain they are in compliance. She is a compliance reviewer and works from her home in Astoria. (How convenient is that??) Matthew is the General Manager for the Astoria Co-op and is an enthusiastic mushroom hunter. Holly and Matthew arrived yesterday for their weekend stay with a big bucket of Matsutaki mushrooms and we feasted on them last night. Currently, a bunch are being dehydrated in our oven so they can be used long after the season is over! We welcome Holly and Matthew, newcomers to the Pacific Northwest! Holly’s father, Tom Owen, bought them this special Wild Mushroom weekend at Boreas for her September birthday. Thank you, Tom and Jane!
