The beach, the beach, the beach…there is no place more relaxing, rejuvenating and romantic than an Oregon coast get-away for the special person that we call ‘Mom’.
This year we are hosting a very casual Mother’s Day Weekend, where our entire staff will be waiting to create a wonderful weekend experience, complete with a beautiful brunch presentation each morning and a Wine and Cider Appetizer Hour every afternoon.
Let us do the work, while Mom can rest and enjoy being waited on hand and foot for the entire weekend.
Can’t think of that last minute gift?
Surely, a special stay at our Castle on the Coast will make any Mom feel like the Queen she is!
The Pacific Ocean can be truly mesmerizing to watch during its winter furies. The thrashing waves, foaming whitecaps and the howling wind – it is an exciting and epic show. Storm watching at Cannon Beach is a great way to spend a blustery day in the winter.
Storm watchers gather along the Northwest coast once the air becomes chilly and nights get long, wanting to witness water’s relentless assaults on terra firma. Some prefer to watch the crashing waves from a toasty-warm ocean view B&B room or grab a spot at a coastal restaurant that offers window seating for storm watching. Others venture outdoors to get a first hand feel for this amazing weather experience.
To help make it easier for you, we are offering a Winter Storm Watching Special starting on Nov. 1. Make sure to check back to see the details!
Words of Wisdom: Storm watching is a spectator sport. Always stay a safe distance away from the ocean. Do not climb or hike on wet slippery rocks. We recommend warm beverages and a cozy room with large windows.
We have several luxury rooms at our Cannon Beach bed and breakfast with outstanding ocean views that would provide a beautiful setting for watching nature’s fury and power.

After a storm is the best time to find treasure on the beach. Beachcombing for agates, shells, petrified wood, and glass floats is lots of fun. Your chance of finding a glass float now is better than ever since coastal communities began “seeding” the beaches with them.
The dramatic cliffs and beaches of the Oregon coast are a natural inspiration for creativity. It’s not surprising that so many artists call this area home. Even if their artwork doesn’t take inspiration directly from the landscape, artists find the coastal community’s laid-back atmosphere and slower pace make it a great place to create.
