The Oregon Coast

Hotels in The Oregon Coast

Just 400 feet from the sand, the 35-room Inn at Cape Kiwanda is the perfect base for a weekend at the shore. Suites are cozy—gas fireplaces; down comforters—and offer amazing views of the surf crashing into Haystack Rock, a 327-foot-tall basalt monolith jutting out of the bay.

Glamorous details abound: the Tower Room has a panoramic view and alcove soaking tub, and the Tuscan Spa has a sauna and rain shower for two.

Built in 1941, these 12 attached cottages are an easy walk to the beach, and the owners will provide a “clam gun” for scooping up clams from the sand.

Situated in Willamette Valley wine country, the LEED Gold–certified Allison Inn & Spa is surrounded by colorful gardens, sprawling lawns, and seven acres of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris grapevines.

On the northern end of Oregon's untamed coastline is Cannon Beach, a seaside town where Mother Nature has left her fingerprint in the form of Haystack Rock, a 235-foot basalt monolith rising from the shore.

Enjoy great bay views from a private deck, and bright, nautically themed rooms.

The former beach house was turned into an inn by Bruce Bessey. The three handsome suites, with mod furnishings, are perfect for curling up in when the rain lashes the wild surf. In fair weather, guests mingle on the oceanfront deck to watch gray whales or gaze at the stars.

The beautifully converted cannery right on a pier in Astoria has luxurious, glass-fronted rooms with gas fireplaces (and in some cases claw-foot tubs). Private decks have stunning views of boats trolling the Columbia River.

You won’t find more dramatic coastal views (ask for one of the Mariner’s Rooms) than those here, a B&B at the base of an old lighthouse.

Fronting the Rogue River and flanked by old-growth rain forests, with an emphasis on genial service.
