We are right on the beautiful Oregon coast. Depoe Bay is right between Lincoln City & Newport, OR. All of Depoe Bay's fine restaurants & fun shops are within close walking distance. Wherever you walk in Depoe Bay, you can see the ocean.
We are approximately 2 1/2 hrs from the Portland airport.
In 2006 we bought this home and spent two years remodeling it to create this Bed and Breakfast. With both suites sitting right on the
ocean, with the most spectacular views, it is one we knew had to be shared. We gave each suite their own outdoor private entrance and outdoor area. Much tender loving care has
gone into creating the two suites, and God supplied all the splendid beauty. We now look forward to welcoming you as our guests.

"Thanks - five days in Heaven!!! We have been coming ot the coast for many years, and both agree that the Whales Rendezvous is by far the best place
we have stayed in all of those trips over. Every view from our room was wonderful, nature at its finest. The peace and tranquility are unsurpassed. Everything, the views, the
sounds, the rocky coast, mezmerized us into a sense of joy & wonder. The meals provided by Joe & Dian were of a quality one would expect in a fine restaurant. The food was
excellent and the presentation very appealing. Everything about Whales Rendezvous was of the utmost quality."

" Wow! What a miraculous place, and what very special "innkeepers"! We feel fortunate to hae discovered W.R. and to have met both of you.
The serenity, views and storm tossed sea only add to the special charm of W.R. And the meals...words cannot discribe the presentation, taste and culinary skill demonstrated by "Chef Joe"!
Without a doubt, one of the most special and enriching weekends we have ever spent, and we have traveled around the world. Best wished for continued growth and success but not so much it
becomes impossible to get a reservation!

"Dian and Joe,...
When they say- "Heaven is a little closer in a house by the sea", I must say it is certainly true of the "Whales Rendezvous"! We were smitten by the grace and charm of your little piece of paradise. You are truly blessed to have been lead here, and we thank you for sharing it. We feel blessed having found you. We love to see people live with passion and it is obvious that a lot of hard work, dedication and love went into your dream. Your gracious hospitality, attention to detail and our comfort was deeply appreciated. You really helped make our 17th anniversary a memorable one. "
Love and God's Blessings,
Jan and Keith, OR
PS "Your breakfasts were fit for "royalty" and the presentation superb!! "
"I have been in some magical and magnificent places in my life, and I can now count Whales Rendezvous as one of them! Having grown up as an "ocean
baby" in Oregon, I thought, up until this weekend, I had seen and experienced the BEST the Oregon Coast had to offer. Delightfully, I was mistaken. I've watched the water change this
weekend from placid and rollingly peaceful, to wild and wicked. I've had breakfast with a whale! How many people can say that? Twice now! And, speaking of breakfast... well,
it doesn't get any better than here at W.R. Fresh flowers on the plate, food that is both decadent and delicious, and good for you, prepared by people who obviously care very much about what
they're doing. And, they have a talent and flair for it. Plus, they are kind, warm, generous and funny. This is the perfect bed and breakfast experience. I particularly love
the 2 patios, the deck, and those little plants at ocean's edge. They lay down when the water comes in, and pop back up with a life of their own when it
'Dear Dian and Joe,
You have such a magical place in this world to be and you've created a wonderful space for people to experience joy and love -- we've so enjoyed the sun, and rain, and whales, and your gracious hospitality.
We'll be back, for sure! We're grateful that you've chosen to give to people in this way, and that we got to be here."

"Dian and Joe,
This place is amazing. We loved the view, all the fabulous touches! We would have loved to be able to stay longer. What a place of renewal- I hope to come back sometime.
Best wishes and may you find all the success you hope for - this is awesome! Breakfast was incredible. We've only eaten one breakfast that rivaled it and that was at the Bilton!! "
