The Awtrey House, a modern Bed and Breakfast in the Northwest style, is one of the few places on earth where you can spend the night in the architecturally significant construction of world acclaimed architect, James Cutler, and converse with your host, Dennis Awtrey, a former NBA player. Gaze at the hypnotic Pacific Ocean from your private terrace; marvel at a blanket of stars from your luxurious king-size bed; sigh at the sun setting over the ocean while you soak in a deep, relaxing bath; watch the shadows play on the wood beams of your soaring ceilings, board-formed concrete walls and fascinating architectural details; wake to the morning sunlight filtering through walls of clear and frosted glass; and at your leisure, enjoy a full course breakfast prepared by your hosts with local Northwest fare.
The Awtrey House is nestled at the base of Neahkahnie Mountain, almost touching the Pacific Ocean on the Oregon coast, one of the most beautiful places in the world. Neahkahnie lies on a seven mile beach between the charming village of Manzanita and the majestic Neahkahnie cliffs. For over 100 years Neahkahnie has been known for its Northwest architecture and artists’ community. The Awtrey House continues this tradition with the distinct modern syle of architect James Cutler and the paintings of Neahkahnie artist, Pam Greene, who captures the essence of the Oregon coast with her own unique style.
Your peaceful escape on the south end of town. Two, private suites in a secluded Japanese garden with a steaming Zen Bath available upon request. ($20.00) The Pacific ocean beach is one minute’s walk from the front gate and the forest of Nehalem Bay Sate Park is across the street. It is a twenty minute walk along the beach to Manzanita center or two minute’s drive by car. A full, hot breakfast of your choice is served to you individually in your suite, or on the patio, and the ingredients are mainly local and organic. Free Wi Fi. This is a good place for taking very scenic walks on the beach, or in the park, without having to get in your car. It is also a wonderful base for exploring more beautiful beaches and little towns in the area.
