Benjamin Young Inn Information


Built in 1888, for Benjamin Young and his family. Our Victorian B&B sits on 3/4 acre estate overlooking the Columbia River. The large main dining room serves a gourmet breakfast and boasts five large windows to let in natural light and show off the river and garden views. All five guest rooms have their own private bathroom with a shower. The main living room features a fireplace and all rooms have quiet, cozy, old-fashioned radiant heat. While elegant in appearance, the B&B has an atmosphere that is welcoming, laid-back, and relaxed. We are centrally located to allow guests to explore the wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities found where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean in the Pacific Northwest. Sand beaches, hiking trails, state parks, and the Lewis and Clark National Historic Park are only 15 minutes away. The Astoria Riverwalk is a paved trail that will take you all the way from Uppertown to Downtown to Uniontown. We are 1.5 miles away from downtown. Pier 39 is a 7 minute walk from the B&B and has some shops a Rogue Brewery Public House, Coffee Girl Cafe, Vineside Wine Bar and the Bumblebee Cannery museum. The internationally-recognized Columbia River Maritime Museum is a mile away. Local river and ocean fishing, clamming, and crabbing are available in season. Downtown Astoria offers excellent shops, restaurants, and art galleries, as well as a vibrant craft beer and liquor scene. Local activities are available for both children and adults. The Benjamin Young Inn offers the following amenities: free off-street and on-street parking, self-serve coffee and tea in the dining area, Columbia River and Goonies house views, free Wi-Fi internet access, a comfortable south-facing front porch and an expansive collection of the history about the house, the Young family and local community.

Carolyn Hammer has been the owner of the Benjamin Young Inn since 1994. She has been an innkeeper for over 25 years. Before her innkeeping journey began, she and her late husband Ken worked in the Belgian Congo (now the Democratic Republic of Congo), and as part of that experience learned to speak both French and Swahili. She is eager to welcome guests from around the world to the beautiful and historic Astoria. Carolyn's grandson Lorin Anderson and his wife Emma are the Benjamin Young Inn's resident innkeepers. They moved from Michigan in October 2020 to help her run her B&B. Emma is the main host and welcomes all with her gracious hospitality.

Benjamin Young Inn has been welcoming guests since October 1994
