June 6th, 2016 by Innkeeper

Kissable Moment: A 500 Step Adventure to Terrible Tilly

What do you get when you combine a 5 mile drive with 500 steps?

You get a magical vista to share with your loved one… a majestic view of our lighthouse, Terrible Tilly.

Result: The perfect kissable moment…

Terrible Tilly Lighthouse

After parking in the main lot of Ecola State Park, you find yourself in front of a grassy picnic area. To the right, heading north, is a trail to Indian Beach, which starts along an asphalt path leading to a quaint small wooden bridge.

When you reach this bridge, start counting your steps… expect a slight uphill climb. You will reach a lookout point with a small chain link fence.

Stop here and gaze with wonder… The rest is up to you!

Continue on for an incredible day hike to the secluded Indian Beach…

Or return to the Inn to share the comfort of a warm fire, afternoon appetizers and romance.

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.
