What Makes the Oregon Coast Such a Special Place?

July 25th, 2016 by Innkeeper

Sunset Oregon Coast, Cannon BeachWhat is it that makes the Oregon Coast such a special place? Certainly, part of what is so special about the Cannon Beach area are the dramatic rock formations and stunning vistas up and down the Coastline.  There are places, like Cannon Beach’s iconic Haystack Rock and the Tillamook Head that are forever etched in our hearts and minds.  Combined, that’s enough to earn Cannon Beach a place on the National Geographic’s 2013 list of “The World’s 100 Most Beautiful Places.”  We may not be able to pick one single outstanding reason why the Oregon Coast is such a special place, but we can certainly start to etch out the beginnings to what will surely be an extraordinary vacation.  Book your room at our beach side retreat, and decide for yourself what it is that is so special about summertime on the Oregon Coast.

Regarding Neahkahnie Mountain, there is a lot more to it than meets the eye.

In addition to being one of the most spectacular volcanic outcroppings on the coast, looming up through one of the World’s Only Temperate Rain Forests, local legend has it that in the 1600’s a Spanish galleon came to the area, carrying murder, treasure and mystery.  According to this lore, a chest of gold was buried somewhere on the Mountain.  People still hunt for it until this day.

Tidepools

Arch Cape Inn and Retreat is in the process of changing its mission statement and daily living activities in order to become eligible for green certification. A particular emphasis for us focuses on protecting and preserving the water quality of our local area.
In an effort to keep our water clean, water that surrounds us everywhere, we are making  changes in our habits. One such change that is easy to do is to use ordinary vinegar in a spray bottle as a surface cleaning agent.
