Best for Romance: Arch Cape House

Arch Cape House

Arch Cape House

This house located right on the Oregon Coast Trail near Cannon Beach is actually modeled after a romantic castle. The chateau has ten well-appointed rooms with pillow-top mattresses, gas fireplaces, and mini-fridges, as well as an elegant common room, an outdoor terrace, and meticulously-groomed gardens to enjoy.

Couples should book the Tower Room, which has a panoramic view of the beach and an alcove soaking tub. Taking cues from English manor design, rooms are elegant and airy with bright windows.

The Tuscan Spa has a sauna and rain shower for two. To enjoy the beach, guests just need to take a four-minute walk and they'll be on the sands of secluded coastline.

All rooms include a complimentary gourmet breakfast each morning as well as an afternoon wine/cider and hors d’oeuvres hour from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. There are also three pet-friendly rooms available for those traveling with their furry loved one.

Best View: Heceta House

Heceta House

Heceta House

There aren't many bad views along the Oregon Coast, but for one of the most dramatic coastal views, travelers can book a Mariner’s Rooms at the base of an old lighthouse at Heceta House. The Heceta Head Lighthouse and Light Keeper’s home were built circa 1894, and both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

A room at one of the last remaining Lightkeeper’s cottages on the Pacific Coast comes with cozy down duvets, antique furnishings, and decadent seven-course breakfasts.

Guests can take a nighttime walk to the lighthouse to take in all of the stars or to check out the antique Fresnel lens that casts its beams 21 miles out to sea. The three-sided porch of the main house has 180-degree views of historic Cape Creek bridge, Heceta Lighthouse, and the Pacific Ocean, making it an ideal place for enjoying a complimentary wine and cheese evening.

Best Spa: Allison Inn and Spa

Allison Inn and Spa

Allison Inn and Spa

The Allison Inn & Spa has been voted multiple times as the state’s top hotel and for good reason: The LEED-gold certified eco-friendly property is nestled in the idyllic Willamette Valley wine country within seven acres of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris grapevines, expansive fields, and beautiful gardens.

The hotel takes advantage of its location, as its Jory restaurant serves farm-to-table dishes like cauliflower salad and an oyster flight, while also offering forty different wines by the glass. The spa also does its part by integrating the use of local berries, roses, wine, and honey in its treatments.

The 85 guest rooms are decorated in earthy tones and all have gas fireplaces, big tubs, and views of the valley from a comfy window seat and a private terrace or balcony.

To help guests unwind further, there is an indoor pool and sauna if guests need to exercise or sweat out their toxins.

Best for Active Guests: Salishan Spa & Golf

Salishan Spa & Golf

Salishan Spa & Golf

Surrounded by gorgeous Siletz Bay, just 10 miles from the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse, Salishan Spa & Golf Resort is a retreat for active guests. Visitors can play a round on the 18-hole golf course that winds through the forest and along the Oregon Coast shore, hike miles of nearby trails, or explore the Gleneden Beach via the private access trail from the resort. There are also tennis courts, an indoor pool, and the Salishan Spa to keep guests busy.

Rooms have balcony views of nearby forests and of the golf course, and all come with a fireplace, an upholstered seating area, a mini-refrigerator, and coffeemaker.

Best Value: Channel House

Channel House

Channel House

Even though it can't be considered a "budget" option, for what the Channel House offers it’s definitely deserving of the title of best value. Guests will appreciate the rooms and suites—many with decks and hot tubs—set on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

The hotel is just a four-minute walk from Depoe Bay Whale Watching Center, three miles from Fogarty Creek State Recreation Area, and seven miles from Beverly Beach State Park, so there are a plethora of natural sites to explore.

Free breakfast is included in the room rate, but guests will need to head into town at nearby Depoe Bay for later meals and to try all of the locally-caught seafood.

For the best views, guests can book the top floor suite in the southern wing, called The Cuckoo’s Nest, which has panoramic ocean views from both the living room and bedroom. The bedroom features a TempurPedic queen-sized bed, gas fireplace, and HDTV. The private bathroom is equipped with Gilchrist & Soames bath products and cozy bathrobes. The living space has a sitting area with a second gas fireplace and TV with DVD player, a wet bar, wine fridge, and Keurig coffee maker.

For families or for guests traveling with another couple, The Cuckoo’s Nest can connect with the next-door Crow’s Nest suite.

Best on Cannon Beach: Schooner’s Cove Inn

Schooner’s Cove Inn

Schooner’s Cove Inn

Schooner’s Cove Inn is one of the few oceanfront Cannon Beach hotels right downtown. Just walking a few steps from the hotel guests have access to restaurants, shops, galleries, bakeries, coffee houses, and the Cannon Beach Coaster Theater. 

All rooms here are oceanfront, with sand starting right past a small but well-manicured lawn outside the hotel. The beachfront lawn has picnic tables and barbecues for guest use.

Rooms come with Wi-Fi, HBO, and gourmet coffee machines, with laundry facilities also available on-site for guests. Most rooms have a private oceanview deck and are equipped with a gas fireplace to fully set the mood for a cozy evening near the water. The resort hot tub is located on a deck right over the sand, so if the ocean is too cold you can still enjoy the beach while being in the water.

Best for Foodies: The Stephanie Inn

The Stephanie Inn

The Stephanie Inn

A bit upscale and not the most family-friendly (only children older than 12 may stay), the pet and smoke-free Stephanie Inn shines when it comes to gastronomy.

The Stephanie Inn Dining Room is one of just seven coastal restaurants to earn an Oregon Wine A-List restaurant designation. Every evening, chef Aaron Bedard uses local ingredients at the peak of their season to create a prix fixe, five-course dinner complemented by a bottle from the cellar of exceptional Oregon wines. From baked salmon with zucchini to fresh oysters, the restaurant foregrounds the local produce, preparing it with inventive techniques and fresh flavors.

After dinner, staff can assist with lanterns to facilitate a memorable nighttime beach walk on Cannon Beach.

There are oceanfront, mountain view, carriage house, and specialty suites, and all have gas fireplaces, Aveda products, complimentary water, soft drinks, and a kitchenette. Some rooms even come with a Jacuzzi tub with ocean views.

Best for Families: Headlands Lodge and Spa

Headlands Lodge and Spa

Headlands Lodge and Spa

While the Headlands Lodge and Spa is an upscale choice, it is never pretentious, as the hotel places guests right in the heart of nature. Families with kids will feel especially comfortable booking one of the 18 luxury cottages at the base of Cape Kiwanda.

Staff will stock the gourmet kitchen with groceries and help schedule outings and activities, like surf lessons, beach yoga, a beach bonfire, bike rides, trail or dune hikes, and fishing to find the day’s freshest catch. 

Guests can choose to eat at the Meridian restaurant overlooking the ocean or even right on the beach on a blanket by a crackling campfire. Adults can stay fit with the Precor cardio equipment, Peloton bikes, cable towers, free weights, and yoga props. There are complimentary exercise classes as well.

For families wanting to teach their kids conservation, Headlands provides beach and trail clean-up bags. Guests can pick up a bag at the Adventure Center to help remove the trash that washes up on the beaches or is left on the trails, and a full bag can be redeemed for a voucher for a free Pelican Brewing Co. pint or root beer.

To top it all off, there are Jacuzzi tubs in every room and also private balconies with propane grills.
