Hide and Go Kiss At Hug Point

May 17th, 2016 by Innkeeper

Hug and Go Kiss at Hug Point

Hug PointAptly named… Hug Point, located mere yards from the Arch Cape Inn, really IS one of the best places to kiss on the North Oregon Coast.

At low tide, walk around the point to discover stunning caves, waterfalls and tide pools.

Slip in to one of the caves… and steal a kiss.

While the “Hug” part of the name may lead one to associate with “Kiss”, in reality, the name for this Oregon State Park derives from a couple of other interesting possibilities, still subject to interpretation.  The main theory is that a road was carved into the cliff, much of which still exists today. This early road, along with grab holes, allowed early travelers to ‘hug the point’, as they made their way down the coast to Arch Cape.

For an interesting historical summary with great images, click here.

Featured as our Hike of the Week, Oregon Hikers tells us more about this remarkable area. Click here to learn more.

Best Places to Kiss!

January 28th, 2013 by archcapeinn

hug-point-best-places-to-kissDo you have a birthday coming up? Maybe an anniversary? Whatever your cause for celebration, our Inn on the Oregon Coast is an incredibly romantic location.

If you’ve been planning to propose to your loved one, we would like to give you some location suggestions where she (or he!) just won’t be able to say no.

Hug Point: Just south of Cannon Beach, this little wayside gives you easy access to the beach. North of the parking area you can still walk along the original trail carved into the point by stagecoaches. The wayside was named after the stargecoach route because it hugs the point. Looking further north, Haystack Rock, one of the most identifiable landmarks along the coastline, is easily visible.

Ecola State Park: As you leave the parking area, you’re traveling under the shade of the towering spruce trees until you suddenly emerge upon a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. Be sure to have your ring ready! The stunning view will make the moment all the more magical.

The Top of the Astoria Column: The Astoria Column, which is over 80 years old, is a beloved landmark of the Pacific Northwest Coast. It is located in a wooded area, 600 feet above sea level on Coxcomb Hill in the town of Astoria (about 30 miles north of our inn). This also happens to be Oregon’s highest point, which makes the view astonishing. Majestic views of the countryside around Astoria, the great Pacific Ocean to the west and the Columbia River to the north are visible. Snow-capped volcanoes of the Cascade Range rise to the east and Saddle Mountain pierces the sky on the southern horizon.

While high above the ground, sweep your lover off her feet for Valentine’s day! Then, reward yourself for making it to the top of the Column with a delicious Northwest dinner.

 

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.
