Our Coastal Autumn, arriving imperceptibly and gently on the heels of Summer, is one of the most breath-taking times of the year here at the Arch Cape Inn and Retreat. The Vine Maples, turning crimson in the warm slanted light, peek out from the edges of the forests…….leading the way through the woods as we explore and hunt for mushrooms.
A hike into the woods to identify mushrooms, anywhere near the Inn, along trails that take you deep into the forest, will result in a day of magical adventure for you and your companion. If you’re new to mushroom hunting on the Oregon Coast, you’ll want to read up about the different coastal mushroom varieties. Here is one example of a nifty Beginner’s Guide to mushroom foraging, in case you have never thought of going into the woods to identify mushrooms. And, remember…if contemplating eating a mushroom…..as they say, there are only two types of Mushroom Hunters….Old Ones and Bold Ones…..So “Know Before You Go”! Read the rest of this entry »

This time of year, the last of Summer’s beautiful weather begins to turn toward Fall. As Summer winds down, the Elk….aka The Elusive Wapati…. begin to descend from the Coast Range in search of food. We are the lucky beneficiaries of this annual migration, where Elk can be seen in our yard, along the roads and down the many trails that surround the Inn.
In that the Arch Cape Inn nestles along the Oregon Coast Trail, we often recommend that our guests take advantage of of both of these unique opportunities…to hike along the OCT and to likely see the Elk. Enjoy an especially stunning, but difficult hike from Arch Cape to Short Sands. This hike can be modified for all interest levels and abilities. Read the rest of this entry »
