Winter Storm Watching on the Oregon Coast

The Pacific Ocean can be truly mesmerizing to watch during its winter furies. The thrashing waves, foaming whitecaps and the howling wind – it is an exciting and epic show. Storm watching at Cannon Beach is a great way to spend a blustery day in the winter.

Storm watchers gather along the Northwest coast once the air becomes chilly and nights get long, wanting to witness water’s relentless assaults on terra firma. Some prefer to watch the crashing waves from a toasty-warm ocean view B&B room or grab a spot at a coastal restaurant that offers window seating for storm watching.  Others venture outdoors to get a first hand feel for this amazing weather experience.

To help make it easier for you, we are offering a Winter Storm Watching Special starting on Nov. 1. Make sure to check back to see the details!

Words of Wisdom: Storm watching is a spectator sport. Always stay a safe distance away from the ocean. Do not climb or hike on wet slippery rocks. We recommend warm beverages and a cozy room with large windows.

We have several luxury rooms at our Cannon Beach bed and breakfast with outstanding ocean views that would provide a beautiful setting for watching nature’s fury and power.

After a storm is the best time to find treasure on the beach. Beachcombing for agates, shells, petrified wood, and glass floats is lots of fun. Your chance of finding a glass float now is better than ever since coastal communities began “seeding” the beaches with them.
