Accommodation at the coast
For those who don’t mind sand in the sheets as long as they’re 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton,
the Oregon coast offers an array of high-end lodging where sea air and spectacular views are standard amenities.
At the Tu Tu’ Tun Lodge
in aptly named Gold Beach, there’s water, water everywhere, at least from the poolside terrace to
the views from each of the 20 rooms’ private decks. Hotel amenities include in-room massages, an extensive seafood menu,
an exclusive wine list and fireplaces set to go with sweet-smelling kindling.
In quaint Cannon Beach, where shopping is as
much a pastime as beach combing, the pristine Ocean Lodge
and the posh Stephanie Inn
claim the best beachfront locations,
with private balconies overlooking Haystack Rock and in-room Jacuzzi tubs and fireplaces.
Up the coast in Astoria, The Cannery Pier Hotel
offers rooms that hover above the mighty Columbia River, a beautiful home base for
exploring the city’s rich maritime history, art galleries and restaurants.
