Crosby House Bed and Breakfast
Come be a guest at the Crosby House Bed and Breakfast, where you will discover the busy Astoria waterfront just a block away. Here, you will experience the busy Columbia River shipping channel, where cargo ships pass day and night or just lay anchor, waiting to be loaded up river.
Constructed by Magnus C. Crosby, the newest Bed and Breakfast in Astoria was built in 1880 between “Uniontown” and old “Swill-town”. Crosby once owned a unique hardware store on Commercial Street, and later, the “Little Tin Shoppe around the Corner”. Moreover, Crosby was president of the Hook and Ladder #1, which was located on Astor Street just north of the house, and served as mayor of Astoria for 2 terms during the late 19th Century.
Once the shady part of town, unsuspecting men were SHANGHAIED in or near the many saloons, bordellos and Chinese opium dens on the waterfront.
The house was purchased by your hosts in 2002, Ken and Teresa Mittelbuscher spent most of 2012 through 2014 remodeling in order to accommodate guests who appreciate the Astoria Waterfront area and history of the fishing industry.
The inn features three bedrooms, all with private baths and views of Astoria’s well know landmarks. Take in views of downtown and the lower Columbia River, from the covered deck outside the coffee area any time of the day.
As native Californian’s we consider Astoria a little San Francisco, with Victorian architecture and Craftsman homes situated along the majestic hillsides. In addition, there are two Washington lighthouses a short distance away. There is something for everyone to experience and explore. The Astoria Waterfront is a truly enchanting and beautiful location, where guests will enjoy an unforgettable visit.
