There’s an unmistakably romantic vibe at this iconic seaside inn. It comes in the form of luminous Pacific Ocean sunsets seen from guest room balconies, private beachside bonfires with cider and gourmet popcorn, and fireside couples’ massages. Local hoteliers Jan and Steve Martin were keen on creating an amorous hideout, a welcome contrast to their family-forward Surfsand Resort (just a mile away), when they opened doors in 1993—and it certainly shows. The meticulously maintained digs here are luxurious: country-style furniture, Jacuzzis (some with views of Haystack Rock, a towering basalt monolith), and wet bars in all 41 rooms ensure it’ll be near impossible to check out from your serene sanctuary. The inn’s eponymous restaurant attracts both hotel guests and area visitors thanks to a gifted chef who whips up seasonal evening plates—grilled peach and herbed chèvre cheese salad, Dungeness crab cakes—inspired by the Pacific Northwest. In the mornings, there’s an equally impressive breakfast selection consisting of gourmet treats like morel mushroom frittatas and French toast with Grand Marnier-soaked strawberries. If you choose to spend the day exploring the galleries and secret gardens of Cannon Beach, often referred to as the Oregon Coast’s prettiest beach town, make sure you head back to the inn in time for happy hour: held every afternoon in the oceanfront library, the social scene features an impressive beverage selection that includes Northwest wines and beers and hors d’oeuvres from the popular onsite restaurant.
In the Area
The inn is an hour-and-a-half drive from Portland International Airport. Thanks to the connection between Highway 26 and Highway 101, visitors no longer have to brave the seven-hour journey (which includes 111 hairpin curves) on Ecola Toll Road to get to this spectacular seashore.
How to Get There
Stephanie, you did it again! Thanks for meeting and exceeding our expectations. This was a surprise trip to my husband for our 15th year anniversary. We have come here several times for our anniversary when we lived a couple hours away. This time required flying across country, but we happily did so. Your staff, facility, food is amazing, Every single time. Thank you, to each one of you.
Beautiful hotel and great service! We had an ocean view room on the second floor and loved the view! The food is fabulous as well. We came here for our 34th wedding anniversary and enjoyed everything!
The Inn is a very pleasant place to stay. Excellent rooms and servce. Dining room has excellent food for dinner and breakfast. The afternoon wine tasting is a wonderful time to mix with other guests from around the Northwest.
