Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 March 2012

We arrived late in the evening, with no reservations. We were were made welcome, offered sherry and offered our choice of two available rooms at a very reasonable rate. We were comfortable and happy. In the morning breakfast was simply incredible! The stories were just as good. We were treated like old friends from the first "Hello."

My husband and I stayed in this lovely B&B twice and each time was a very nice experience. The room was very clean and comfortable, the breakfast was outstanding. We'll be back

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the rooms on the first floor because it had a separate bathroom.

Thank you for taking time to do this review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We do take pride in our hospitality, cleanliness, and beauty of the Edwin K B&B.

Just a clarification to those reading this review - Each room in the B&B does have its own private bathroom. But the room with the most privacy is the Autumn Room, the room these guests are referring to, which has a complete bathroom behind a wooden door. So if you are looking for the room with the most privacy, you would want this room. Many of the other rooms have privacy screens in front of the toilet area, and shower curtains around / in front of tubs / showers. If having a larger, more romantic room is more important to you, any of the other rooms are very nice, also.

We enjoyed our stay at the Edwin K. The location in Old Town is excellent~ an easy walk to shopping and restaurants. The history lesson of the Craftsman home (love the original wood work!) was fascinating. We were there during a stormy winter weekend and were cozy, but I can see that it would also be a wonderful summer destination. Relaxing on the porch or charming patio, soothed by the sounds of the lovely water feature, sounds so restful to me! Bring your appetite! The breakfast provides a scrumptious array of foods, & you may discover the tasty bounties of fresh Oregon berry varieties, such as Marionberry, Ollalie berry, huckleberry & more, in the home-made jams & scones!

Room Tip: Call ahead to discuss your needs~ they are very helpful. There are some ground floor rooms (one is h...

We enjoyed the five-course breakfast most of all on our two visits; the last was Spring 2010. The room was comfortable; not all bathrooms are private, however. Some have a folding screen door for the toilet & no counter space. The hospitality was excellent. Cookies, wine and nuts were offered in the early evening. We walked to town; a few blocks and enjoyed the restaurants there. Clean, and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Avoid the room facing the street; no view. The gardens are much better

A Craftsman home, from a Sears and Robuck catalog.
A host serving a five course Breakfast who was a restaurant manager.
Great location for Old Town access.
Our Autumn room was quiet and reasonably spacious for a converted 1915 home.
Bathroom had a nice shower/tub that might be a little hard to get out of for some.
Small refrigerator with bottled water in the room.
A very nice garden outside your room with privacy and a water feature where no road noise made it.
The view out front is spoiled by an abandoned restaurant and parking lot.

If you are interested Marv can provide a wonderful history of the area.
Marv truly enjoys making homemade everything. Enjoy your breakfast.

Room Tip: Go for the Autumn room off season.
