Our passion for inn keeping started in 1982 with a small boutique inn on a beach in south Florida. After eight years we moved to Colorado to raise our family. We once again find ourselves innkeeping as we were fortunate enough to buy Ocean House in 2011, and we now call the Pacific Northwest our home.
Dawn’s past career path in nursing took her into the operating room, which she enjoyed immensely for over thirty years. She also enjoys custom picture framing, photography, and crafting. Craig has had a varied career as a general contractor and professional firefighter. He enjoys the great outdoors, hiking and exploring. Our other interests include theater, music, art and antiques. Our family is at the heart of all we do, they are our greatest fans and support.
Ocean House is the realization of our latest dream and adventure: owning a bed and breakfast. We are self-professed foodies and self-taught chefs with a love for preparing, serving and enjoying great food. We also love sharing stories with our guests from all over the world. We’re looking forward to your stay with us, getting to know you and showing you all that the central Oregon coast has to offer.
We hope to see you soon!

The room (cottage) with a view was perfect in every way. Everything we experienced here has been a dream.
Best B&B Ever on the Oregon Coast
Spent a Romantic Valentine’s weekend and had a great time. Room was extremely comfortable. Breakfasts each morning were fantastic. The location at Agate beach added to the incredible adventure.
Highly recommend and will visit again!
One of the best B&B’s I’ve ever stayed in!
Everything about our stay was perfect on the Oregon Coast. Proximity to Newport was great, views were incredible, easy beach access, and the rooms were huge! To top it off, they gave us some great recommendations for dinner which led us to some of the best seafood I’ve ever had.
Beautiful property! Breakfasts and cookies delicious. The picnic was a highlight our visit!
The house, room and gardens were beautiful with easy access to the beach. I felt like we were in a small private resort.
Quiet, peaceful and views to die for.
We love the Oregon coast. Our time here is always relaxing and very special.
The energy and heart of this place make it the perfect escape from a hectic world.
It is so beautiful and magical. The perfect romantic getaway for a special birthday celebration.
Great view, great hosts, great food-what else could you ask for?
What a great time we had in Windswept. We hope to enjoy this gem of a place in the future.
We felt so at home, relaxed. It was everything we hoped for.
Wow, we were blown away by your hospitality. Thank you so much for making us feel at home.
Great Bed and Breakfast! The hosts are very friendly and give some great advise for sightseeing and restaurants on the Oregon Coast. We would definitely come back!
