The Destination
Named one of America's Favorite Beach Towns in 2009 by Forbes Traveler, Long Beach isn't your average getaway on the coast. Of course, we aren't talking about California. Two and a half hours northwest of Portland, on Washington's scenic southern coast—the anti SoCal if ever there were one—Long Beach features driftwood-strewn beaches, miles of vacant coastline, and a tight-knit crew of intrepid cold-water surfers, clad in wet suits instead of board shorts. It's a sleepy stretch, to be sure, but that hasn't stopped a handful of restaurateurs, antiques dealers, and art gallerists from setting up shop on the peninsula.

The Digs
China Beach Retreat, an intimate Crafstman-style B&B nestled along the Long Beach peninsula in Ilwaco, sits amid the same tidelands that Lewis and Clark passed through in 1805. Elegantly appointed in historic fashion, your guest room features antiques that reflect the richness of this cultural setting. Survey the panoramic views outside your window, take in the beauty of Baker's Bay and the Columbia River, or go for a dip in your hydrotherapy massage tub.

During the day, discover the surrounding stillness—the only neighbors you'll encounter are otter, deer, and heron. Watch the local fishing fleet come in and out of the harbor as you relish the reduced pace amid peace and quiet.

  • "We wanted a relaxing destination for our summer vacation this year and China Beach fit the bill perfectly. The home itself was as close to perfect as we could've hoped for."
