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!
Dawn and Craig
