Here at the Arch Cape Inn, January and February bring us so many opportunities to enjoy a Winter romantic getaway. After a delicious 3-course Breakfast, for those of us who love the outdoor adventure, nothing is more exciting than to head out to our own Neahkahnie Mountain to take in the spectacular vistas.
Each winter, the migrating whales give us the perfect excuse to pack up a cozy lunch for a day hike (or drive!) to a lookout in order to see these spectacular creatures migrate right below the mountain. You can read about Neahkahnie Mountain Whale Watching here.
Or, for those who like to start off slow and then taper off……a day spent by the fireplace, reading books with your beloved may be just the perfect way to get a jump on celebrating Valentine’s Day……our Staff will do everything possible to support you in comfort and style.
And, because our little towns of Cannon Beach and Manzanita are very quiet this time of year, January and February really are the best months to enjoy an evening out for dinner.
We can make many recommendations and reservations, depending on your mood.
Come stay with us…….and when booking your reservation directly on our website, enter the PROMO CODE: Romance to receive an additional 20% DISCOUNT for any stay through February 14.

Different in it’s quirky, wonderful way, of course. These stormy winter months also afford you the opportunity to curl up with your special someone, and dedicate time to nothing but romance. When it comes to the Oregon Coast, there’s one romantic getaway destination that outshines the rest, and that is the Arch Cape Inn & Retreat.

We can think of no better time to escape to the dramatic shores of Oregon’s stunning coast, where you can relax and rejuvenate yourself at this hectic time of year. The quiet winter months bring with them miles of secluded beaches to enjoy, nearly empty streets, shops and restaurants to browse, and the unpredictable, stormy and awe-inspiring weather that often comes our way. These winter months also happen to offer some of the best whale watching in the Northwest. Book your room at the Arch Cape Inn & Retreat, and experience the magical quiet of Cannon Beach in the winter. Read the rest of this entry »

There are about 400 gray whales that do not go as far north as Alaska to feed in the summer. They feed along coasts of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. We generally have whales on the central coast from July through mid November. These whales are seen very close to shore while feeding and can often be seen from many of these same locations into January.
