Long Beach - Boreas Bed and Breakfast Inn, located at 607 N. Ocean Blvd. in Long Beach, is the winner of the 2002 Better Business Bureau /Enterprise Rent-A-Car Business of the Year Award for Oregon and Southwest Washington in the category of customer service.
Boreas has been owned and operated by Susie Goldsmith and Bill Verner since Goldsmith purchased the Inn in 1996.
In accepting the award, Goldsmith acknowledged that this honor reconnected her with the business community in the Portland metro area, where she had previously owned a geriatric care management consulting firm.
She also stated that, in the month of her fiftieth birthday, she couldn't dream of a nicer gift and reward for the time she and her partner each contributed in making Boreas a success.
