32nd Annual Northwest Garlic Festival This Weekend in Ocean Park, WA and more!

June 13th, 2013 by Susie Goldsmith

Are you a garlic lover?  Have you tried ice cream with caramelized garlic and fudgy ribbons laced in vanilla ice cream?  It is delicious, believe it or not.  The Northwest Garlic Festival has been a favorite of guests at Boreas Inn for  all the years we’ve been here. In the “old days”, our guests would attend the famous Garlic Festival Dinner at The Ark and we had to attend with our guests. If not, on Sunday morning, the Inn would exude garlic from the guests who had ingested something like 13 cloves of garlic per person from The Ark Garlic Festival dinner from the night before.   When you’ve participated, you smell too and it’s just not so bad.

The Northwest Garlic Festival is being held on Saturday and Sunday, June 15th and 16th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Beach Baron’s field on Sandridge Road in Ocean Park, Washington. Travel time is only 15 minutes from Long Beach. The admission is free and you will find garlic in every form you can think of.  There will even be garlic people!  You can also shop for pottery, clothing, jewelry, soaps and lotions (not garlic scented!) and there are always  great spice and olive oil vendors at the Festival plus music and entertainment featuring the North Coast Blues Band. The admission is free!  Although we do miss The Ark’s Garlic Festival dinners because they were among the most outrageous and wonderful parties we have been to,  the good news is that  you can go to Jimella and Nanci’s Market Cafe a few miles up the road from us in Klipsan Beach and partake of the incredible offerings from the former chefs from The Ark any time you are here.  Your favorite Ark dishes are still on the menu and we will make your reservations for you!

The Port of Ilwaco’s  Saturday Market is in full gear with more vendors than ever in a perfect setting on the Port of Ilwaco.  This is such a great venue for shopping!  You can shop at the Shoalwater Cove and Don Nisbett’s gallery as well as cruise the long line of booths with fine art photography, metal art, children’s toys, lotions and potions, jewelry, embroidered clothing and lots more including FOOD!   So there’s much to do this and every weekend on the Long Beach Peninsula.  Get a room at the Inn, laze in the hammocks, borrow our bikes and cruise the Discovery Trail, dine at our fabulous restaurants and let us cook up a storm for you each morning–even though the skies will be sunny!

Come Hunt This Weekend for The Pacific Razor Clam — Siliqua Patula

February 16th, 2012 by Susie Goldsmith

The hunt for the beautiful and delicious bivalve will resume this weekend on the Long Beach, Washington Peninsula. The digs are late afternoon/ early evening with low tide Saturday, Feb.18, is at 4:13 p.m. (0.0 feet), and on Sunday, Feb.19, at 5 p.m. (-0.2 feet).  Plan on being on the beach one to two hours before evening low tide.  You will truly feel you have earned your supper when you dig and clean your clams and then have the privilege of dining on the most gourmet clam of them all, the Siliqua Patula!  Stay at beautiful Boreas Inn on the beach in Long Beach, Washington and we will loan you clam guns and Bill might even show you how to clean your clams and may, even, if you’re very lucky, show you how to cook and EAT them!  The spring clam tides will be announced soon, so there will be many more weekends with a chance to dig those glorious bivalves!

Long Beach, Washington is Clamming Paradise!

The Dawn of Boreas Inn’s New Hot Tub

September 4th, 2010 by Susie Goldsmith

Odell Hathaway, one of our most devoted friends and fans of Boreas Inn took this video of our brand new spa at dawn on the 3rd of September! So this is truly the Dawn of Boreas Inn’s New Hot Tub.  Odell is so clever! The Space Odyssey music just fits!

Our Brand New Spa--Come Bubble Your Troubles Away!

The tub new spa is a bit smaller than our older one and very roomy for our “couples” only soaking.  There are three seats, including two side-by-side recliners, 36 jets (!) and beautiful revolving underwater colors, if you like a little light.  It’s hard to get a good picture of the new spa unless you dangled from the gazebo ceiling! The tub is made by Cal Spa’s division “OC Hot Tubs”.  I thought Orange County motorcycles were gorgeous, but this spa is pretty lush!  Bill and I tried it out on Thursday night and it was just perfect.  The operations and materials are quite “green” and so far, our guests say they love the new spa.  So in addition to fine regional cuisine, the most comfortable beds, and extra special whatever we can think of for our guests, we now have a new spa with a beautiful view.   The ex-spa works fine–and we’re looking for a home for it.  It sprung a leak around a seal (we think) but other than that, it works fine.  So if one of our former guests would like it, we can arrange for that to happen.  You will have to haul it away!  It was very sad to see it leave the gazebo (and quite a project to get it out of there!)

Boreas Inn named 2009 "Top 5 B&B" in KING 5 TV's "Northwest Best Escapes"

May 5th, 2009 by Susie Goldsmith

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!

Dragon Sky at Boreas

October 6th, 2008 by Susie Goldsmith

It was a stormy day this Saturday and in the afternoon, the skies cleared and these spectacular clouds appeared on the horizon.  At first, they were two alligator-like heads, then the wind flattened out the southerly head and turned it into a whipping tail.  We hadn’t seen anything like it before–so we snapped a shot off our top deck.  What an entertaining and beautifully colored sunset it was. The image doesn’t do it justice!The alligator sunset made our day!

Boreas Inn's Wild Mushroom Celebration is Coming Up!

August 25th, 2008 by Susie Goldsmith

The Kite Festival for 2008 has come and gone. We had a super mellow week with wonderful guests, most of whom have been coming here for close to a decade. Visiting with their families and friends who dropped by was great fun.Flying Penguins The weather was fabulous the last three days and on sunny Saturday we spent a few idyllic hours with friends on the warm beach in front of the inn and I snapped some pictures. I loved the gigantic penguin kite!

Now we look forward to Boreas’ 2008 Wild Mushroom Celebration to be held October 17-19. I finally bought a little Flip Video camcorder and when Veronica Williams, our “All Wild” forager showed up with some spectacular Wild Lobster Mushrooms, it seemed like a good time to film my first-ever video! I have uploaded it to YouTube and will try to upload it here! Excuse the wobbliness–I’m a newbie.
