Coffee is usually available about 20 minutes before the breakfast is served so you can enjoy your first cup while you are reading the paper and checking out the view. Or fire up your in-room coffee maker which is ready to brew our signature coffee anytime you wish.

We are proud to serve organic locally-sourced food whenever possible. Our eggs are delivered fresh every week from a local farm with exceptionally happy chickens. We even give them our coffee grounds and egg shells to use in their compost!

The Pacific Northwest has always been famous for its gourmet coffee. The Inn at the Lake has our own custom roast brewing in our dining room every morning and each guest room has a freshly ground pot ready to brew. An instant kettle is available for use in the kitchen with a large selection of gourmet teas for our tea drinking guests.
Our 100% Organic Fair Trade Arabica Coffee beans used to produce our signature B&B blend have been selected from small 3-5 acre coffee growing farms that produce arguably the most full-bodied. Flavorful, best coffee in the world.
about our roaster:
Nectar of Life Coffee Company is a gourmet coffee roaster located on the breathtaking Oregon Coast. They only source the highest quality gourmet shade-grown Arabica coffees from small farms around the world. Each coffee is chosen based on meticulous sampling. Unlike other coffee companies, Nectar of Life roasts each coffee separately to its own unique flavor profile prior to blending. This method is much more laborious than roasting a blend in one batch, but the result is more than worth the effort.
