We spent Friday and Saturday night at Daybreak Haven B&B. The owners, Pat and Shelley Ryan, are the quintessential B&B hosts. They are sincere, funny and contagiously friendly. We felt immediately welcomed into their lovely home nestled above the gorgeous Umpqua River. The rooms are well appointed with TVs, microwaves, mini refrigerators, coffee makers, resort quality bathrobes and complimentary water and snack baskets.
After a very restful night, we had a 5 star quality breakfast beautifully presented and prepared by Shelley. We spent the day lounging at the house enjoying the amazing views which included sightings of an eagle, river otter, seal and many types of birds. Saturday evening we had a special dinner of freshly baked rolls and four different types of delicious soups expertly prepared by Shelley. This morning we enjoyed a delectable breakfast of filled crepes with whipped cream, fresh fruit, sliced almonds and crisp bacon.
This was the most relaxing weekend we have had in years! We left feeling liked pampered old friends, not people who had been strangers just two days earlier. Our next visit, and there will be one, hopefully will include a fishing trip with Pat. His wealth of knowledge of this river and his willingness to share his fishing secrets makes one want to share in what is obviously one of his passions.
