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”!
If hunting mushrooms is not your thing….a short drive to Haystack Rock to explore the Marine Sanctuary, bird-life, and tide pools will make for an ideal adventure. Running through October, spend the day with the Haystack Rock Awareness Program, a fascinating interactive tour offered with the interpretive assistance of Volunteer Naturalists. Walk out to the ‘Rock’…bring your binoculars, camera, questions and curiosity.
Our Innkeepers will help you check the Daily Schedules and Tides before you head out for the day.
Come stay with us and let us do all the work for you.
Let us serve you a Romantic 3-Course Breakfast that will keep your tummy satisfied until the afternoon…head out for the day and return home to the Inn to enjoy Afternoon Wine, Cider and Small Bites…..as you share adventures and enjoy the company of your fellow travelers.
And, for our returning guests, we offer a Promo Code: Sep-Oct for an additional 20% Savings to any reservation made directly on our site for the month of October.
Book now and be sure to experience Autumn at the Beach, one of the best times of the year.
The crisp, cool months of fall have arrived on the Oregon Coast.

This fall, come stay at our luxurious retreat just south of Cannon Beach, and revel in the quiet, restful atmosphere, punctuated only by the sounds of crashing waves and birds soaring overhead. These beautiful fall months bring us migrating birds, who move along the Pacific Flyway in search of the mild climates of the coast’s estuaries and woodlands. Book your fall getaway with us today, and discover the restful nature of birdwatching this fall in Cannon Beach. 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.
In the event that you want to see the Elk, but none are to be seen near the Inn…..you can always make a short drive to the Jewell Wildlife Viewing Area, which makes for a wonderful day trip…….there are so many other animals and birds to be seen as well.
Come stay with us and experience this beautiful time of year. Be sure to add this Promo Code: Sep-Oct for additional 20% savings to any reservation made directly on our site through October.

What 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.
There are many beautiful places to explore and dramatic vistas to enjoy on the Oregon Coast. None, perhaps, are more beautiful or quintessentially Oregon than Ecola State Park. Arguably, no visit to Cannon Beach is complete without a stroll along these beautiful stretches of Oregon’s finest beaches.
