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.

Tufted Puffins Return to Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach

April 13th, 2012 by Innkeeper
Tufted Puffin at Cannon Beach

Help us welcome back the tufted puffins during Cannon Beach's Twelve Days of Earth Day celebrations.

“Welcome back, puffins!”

So reads a handmade sign held by a flock of school children in front of Cannon Beach’s most prominent landmark, Haystack Rock, every April.

Haystack Rock is home to a colony of 200-300 tufted puffins during the summer months, where they congregate after many months on the open ocean to mate and raise chicks.

Their arrival is a sure sign of spring in Cannon Beach and is celebrated during the annual Twelve Days of Earth Day celebration.

During the event, April 11 – 22, 2012, volunteers with the Haystack Rock Awareness Program set up puffin-viewing stations on the beach with spotting scopes. They are also available to answer questions about the distinctive birds.

Tufted puffins are striking birds during the summer breeding season: each sports a thick, bright orange bill, a bright white face atop a jet-black body, and a pair of golden tufts curling from orange-rimmed eyes down the back of the neck. In the air, they fly purposefully with constantly flapping wings. Read the rest of this entry »

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.
