Excellent place. I came here for the ghost stories and the spirits of this place did not disappoint. That, along with the other complimentary stuff of the Bed and Breakfast were fantastic. Cheese, crackers and your choice of Beer or Wine upon arrival, the scenery around the B & B, the walk to the Lighthouse (Day or Night), the seven course brunch in the morning and last but certainly not least, the ghosts of Heceta. Would love to come back and would highly recommend.
We purchased the Mariners 1 room for our folks' 50 Wedding Anniversary. They are in their late 80s. Eventhough the house was built in the early 1900's my folks were able to navigate well. They were very comfortable and happy with a fantastic view. Thankyou
My wife and I stayed here for two nights in August during a road trip down the coast. We had one of the Mariners Rooms - nicely furnished, with a marvelous view of the ocean, and en suite bathroom. The downstairs is a wonderful museum, with many photographs, maps, and even some old clothing giving a sense of the history of the place and its keepers. The porch is wonderful for sitting and admiring the view, and the pathways down to the beach or up to the lighthouse itself (for touring, sunset watching, and hiking) are convenient and broad, if a bit steep for some. There is a trailhead near the lighthouse that takes one over to Hobbit Beach. The wine and cheese social in the late afternoon was good. The seven course breakfast takes 90 minutes or so to finish, but the food was good, and if you enjoy speaking with other guests, it's a perfect time to relax, eat and chat.
Heceta Head Lighthouse is a working lighthouse, perched atop 305 meters (1,000 feet) high Heceta Head, 21 kilometers (13 miles) north of Florence. The light atop the 17 meters (56 feet) tower was first illuminated in 1894 and now flashes a white beam for eight seconds every minute. Visible for 39 kilometers (21 nautical miles or 24 miles), it remains Oregon’s most powerful lighthouse beam. The Heceta Head Lighthouse and Light Keeper’s home were built around 1894. Both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is said Heceta Head Lighthouse is the most photographed ones in the United States. The Heceta Lighthouse B&B, in the Light Keeper’s home, is perched on a cliff with a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean and the beach below. Paths from the Light Keeper’s Home lead both to the beach and to the lighthouse. Visitors can book a room with ocean views and imagine the life of a lightkeeper. The inn is operated by a concessionaire of the U.S. Forest Service * Some photos courtesy of Internet. Thanks!
What a magical place to stay at! The 7 course breakfast was delicious and different every morning. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The house is gorgeous with so much history in a prime location. During my stay, I enjoyed waking up and hiking to the lighthouse to watch sea lions hunting right off the cliff every morning. The lighthouse at night is to die for, especially on a clear night with all the stars. I was so happy with my stay, I am planning a friends getaway here. I highly recommend Heceta Lighthouse for anyone during their travels.
