    Built in 1921, The Craftsman B&B was renovated in 2004 – 2005 to return the character of the period and modernize the workings. Classic Arts and Crafts elements were incorporated – from the Greene & Greene inspired cloud lift detail of the railings to wainscoting typical of a Gustav Stickley house. The structural integrity of the house has been respected, while adding the style of many of the period’s most respected designers, to make this craftsman house a special place. You will open the door to the 1920’s, so park your car and unplug, because everything is within walking distance.

    The Craftsman B&B is an member of the Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild and has been inspected and approved to meet their standards of quality. We are also a certified Green Lodging B&B, rated by Sustainable Travel International in partnership with OBBG. We are rated 3 leaves by i stay green.com.

    What is Craftsman Style?

    The period started as a revolt of the ornate Victorian design, machine made décor and furniture. Returning to simple, clean and natural design. Celebrating the craftsmanship of hand – made furnishings and buildings, it was common for the architects not only design a house, but also design the interior and furniture. At The Craftsman B&B, you won’t find lace or doilies – and men won’t be embarrassed to tell their buddies about their stay.

    Our four spacious rooms feature period-inspired design and décor with cozy queen-sized beds and down comforters, all have attached private baths and individual radiant heat. All are located upstairs with views of Cape Kiwanda, Haystack Rock, Pacific City and out to the Pacific Ocean. Awake to a full breakfast served in the Dining Room. You won’t have to worry about what to have for lunch; it will fill you up to take on the day.
