Our guests are always welcome to walk the grounds, use the suite's patio, or watch the sunrise from the home's wrap-around porch. On warm days, sit on the porch with your laptop; our WiFi signal reaches outside. For our music pros, there is a weighted-key Casio keyboard available for your use. Bring your earphones for use after 9 p.m. Sunny or cloudy, the dynamic water/forest views are inspirational. The area has an abundance of local walking and bike trails, wildlife refuge, state parks, and, of course, festivals each month to distract you. For those who love the water, we offer the Pacific Ocean and Willapa Bay. Don't forget to bring your boots to walk the wet sand during low tide. Willapa Bay is famous for its clams oysters.

Other things to note
Washington State is known for its dynamic natural beauty, and the Long Beach peninsula is one of the state's most popular destinations. The Writer's Hearth suite is a self-contained home away from home, work, or life's day-to-day busy-ness. The nights are very quiet and tranquil. Winter gales can be fierce, and many travel to the area to see their effect on the ocean. No wonder there have been 2,000 shipwrecks off our shores in the last 200 years. Be sure to open the window and let in the fresh air. You'll sleep like a baby for sure.
