We've stayed here at least two or three times before, but only for a night at a time, as a stop over to another Oregon Coast destination or as a stop on the way home. Knowing the location and how nice this place is, we thought it would be nice for a five night destination for Easter break. While I've not used any amenities yet, my family has been happy with the pool/spa and the breakfast.
The suite is very nice and comfortable, but as I was resting after dinner tonight, I began smelling smoke! I didn't know if it was from fireplaces or beach fires, but my wife said it's from beach fires. I can understand the fun of having a nice warm beach fire, but for someone, who has respiratory issues, the smoke is greatly unwelcome. In California, most beaches prohibit them, so when I come to the beach, I expect cool, fresh air! Hopefully, there's a curfew on these fires. When we came in last night, it was in the wee hours of the morning and I didn't smell anything. But, it had also rained quite hard and is supposed to rain tomorrow too, so hopefully, the marshmallow toting beachcombers won't be toasting their sticky white blobs on a stick!
I have encountered this smoke problem at another BW in San Simeon, Ca., where they have chimneas, they light for the guests to "enjoy." But, not all guests enjoy the smoke! If a lodging facility wants to provide fire, then they need to get a gas fire pit, which is so much nicer! As for the beaches which allow campfires, I wish they would make them illegal within so many yards of lodging facilities.
Hope you don't get smoked out here, especially when you're spending well over $200 a night!
