China Beach Retreat is nestled on Baker Bay with an extraordinary vista of the bay and the mouth of the Columbia meeting the Pacific Ocean. The Oregon Coastal Range stands in the distance and Cape Disappointment defines the western horizon. Nature defines this location. Deer are regular visitors and there are literally hundreds of birds. The view is captivating and the weather is dynamic.

Parts of the property are currently under renovation. As of September 2021, limited reservations for the Audubon Cottage can be booked directly by email or phone 360-777-3312.

The Audubon Cottage

The Audubon Cottage, named after John James Audubon, the patron saint of American ornithologists, was originally built in 2006 and renovated in 2021. It is designed for the romantic and naturalist in you. It is the perfect waterfront haven for people and wildlife. Numerous authentic Audubon prints adorn the walls of this peaceful cottage. Downstairs you’ll enjoy the private exterior deck with 2-person outdoor soaking tub facing the bay as well as a charcoal grill. There is a well-appointed efficiency kitchen with French window out to the deck as well as a small dining table and half bath. Upstairs there is a private bay-facing balcony with chairs to watch the birds, the tides, and the dynamic weather. Inside there is a queen bed, sofa, and a bathroom with heated flooring and an oversized walk-in shower. The ultimate in relaxed, luxury coastal experience.
