Welcome to China Beach Retreat

Welcome to China Beach Retreat in Ilwaco, Washington on the beautiful Long Beach Peninsula, and just a short drive from Astoria, Oregon. This guest retreat is currently under renovation to update and add luxury while keeping the simplistic comfort and the history including the antiques. The decor is an eclectic Pacific Northwest style that makes the most of the beautiful views to be had.

Ocean in View

It was in November of the year 1805 that Lewis and Clark closed in upon their ultimate goal. They traversed this property on the Long Beach Peninsula, now known as China Beach Retreat bed and breakfast. To memorialize the words of William Clark, “Ocian in view! O! the joy.” China Beach awaits. This Long Beach, Washington vista is yours for the asking.


From the communication with the owners, to driving onto the property and then walking out onto the deck, we could not have been happier! Very comfortable, clean and a terrific view. My friend and I have already been spreading the word on what a wonderful find to anyone that will listen!

The Audubon Cottage at The China Beach Retreat provides that perfect, relaxing get away. It is quiet, charming, and nestled in nature. From your balcony you can watch fishing boats heading out to sea in the morning, and see them return in the evening. You can watch the birds, and other small critters playing in and the bay—even watch small deer as they help themselves to apples from the trees. Lovely, restful, rejuvenating. Laurie and David are great and thoughtful hosts.

The word “retreat” is true. This is a beautifully appointed quiet place to commune with nature. No TV. Lots of games and puzzles if you wish to use them. And we had a doe and fawn visit every day. The bird life and watching the boats go in and out of Ilwaco and the mouth of the Columbia is great plus the best jacuzzi I ever experienced. And close to terrific restaurants. I hope to go again.
