I would like to say Thank You to Dian & Joe for opening up their beautiful home to my wife and I. This was our first experience at a B&B and I can honestly say this will be the only B&B we will ever stay at! Everything about the Whales Rendezvous Bed & Breakfast was completely breathtaking. It was better than we ever expected and the perfect getaway to spend a romantic weekend. We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary and Dian & Joe made it very special for us. The view alone was completely worth the trip itself, however in our mind, the suite was just a breathtaking as the beautiful view. Compliments to Joe, the chef, who delighted us with his amazing breakfast each morning! We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are already making plans to return…..

First off I would like to say my wife and I have been traveling since our late teens and our rule was we would never vacation at the same place twice. Well we broke that rule this year by returning this fall to Whales Rendevous. The 2nd visit was just as remarkable as the first and since we stayed a week we had the opportunity to try a new creation of Joe's for breakfast and it was amazing. We truely have formed a great friendship with Joe and Dian they are the best hosts anyone could ever ask for. The view is a million dollar view from the deck and it was an eventfull trip this time as we had the chance to see whales in the bay. If you are looking for a place to recharge or maybe a romantic getaway this is the place to be. Joe and Dian will make sure you have an amazing stay from the views to the breakfasts and everything in between. My wife and I are happy to have broken our golden rule and can't wait to return again whenever we get the chance. Thanks Joe and Dian God Bless you!! until we meet again. Tom and Beth.

There is a reason why Dian & Joe Forbis have received nothing but excellent reviews on Trip Advisor: our experience @ Whales Rendezvous was positively the most excellent Oregon coast experience possible. Everything was luxurious, top-notch, beautiful, stunning... This was such an amazing place.
We stayed in the Ocean Bouquet suite. Total perfection. Everything was spotless, and luxurious. The bed was extremely comfortable with fresh, inviting linens. The bathroom was spacious, clean and comfortable. The interior was elegant and accommodating. We felt at home.
The exterior space, where we spent most of our time, was possibly the most stunning outdoor area I have ever encountered at a B&B. The private patio, open-air adirondack chairs and beautiful, spacious deck only enhanced the most completely beautiful, unencumbered view of the Pacific Ocean I have seen. You want to get closer to the Pacific? Go to the beach and walk in!
The premier location of this B&B is unmatched in Depoe Bay. The time and attention that Dian & Joe have given to reinventing this property and staging the suites is nothing short of amazing.
Breakfast each morning was delicious, carefully crafted and beautifully presented.
All of our needs, even those we didn't know we had, were met with style and grace. In-room coffee, semi-stocked mini-fridge, wine glasses, warm, fluffy robes, relaxing music, binoculars, an umbrella... the comforts of home already there so you can focus more on finding whales outside your window!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Whales Rendezvous. It is something that must be experienced. I highly recommend booking accommodations for your trip to the Oregon coast here. Whether you are seeking whales and sea lions or just want to be close to the ocean and feel totally pampered, Whales Rendezvous is your destination!
We fell in love with the Oregon coast and would not consider staying anywhere else on our next visit.

Dian and Joe made our trip very memorable. The view from the room was so amazing as the waves crashed over the rocks and the whales swam in the distance. We did not even leave the room the first night. We brought food and wine in and sat in front of the water all night. You felt like you were cantilevered over the water. Our chef Joe made wonderful breakfasts each day. Thanks Dian and Joe we had a wonderful time.

Our stay at Whales Rendezvous truly was a piece of Heaven on earth. As soon as we walked into our suite with it's spectacular ocean view we felt like we were in a different world. Our suite (The Sea Rose) was absolutely beautiful! Dian's decor and personal touches give you everything you could possibly want and more. Sitting on your own private deck right on the ocean was truly breathtaking! It was so peaceful watching and listening to the ocean thunderous waves right at our feet.
The gourmet breakfast's prepared by Joe were so delicious. There were even little snacks provided for us in our suite along with a fridge and microwave for us to use. Joe and Dian Forbis are very special people and we feel so very blessed having stayed there and having to know them.
Staying at Whales Rendezvous is a total must! You will not be disappointed. We loved it so much that we plan on coming back again very soon! In fact I think we will be coming back often!
