Amp up the romance with these Cannon Beach lodging options
Cannon Beach is consistently recognized as a top romantic getaway, including being named one of America’s 10 Most Romantic Coastal Destinations by USA Today. One reason is that this tiny town offers at least ten oceanfront resorts and hotels facing one of the Oregon Coast’s most beautiful beaches, including several overlooking Oregon’s iconic Haystack Rock. Lodging choices range from properties recognized as the ultimate in luxurious Oregon Coast hospitality to full-service resorts, boutique hotels, and perfectly appointed vacation rentals ready to be your home away from home. To truly amp up the romance factor of your next getaway, consider these options in planning your next perfect romantic retreat.
For the Ultimate in Luxury
If you seek romantic indulgence, look no further than two of the Oregon Coast’s most celebrated oceanfront hotels. The Stephanie Inn and The Ocean Lodge are known for great ocean views, beautifully furnished rooms, and exceptional service. In-room fireplaces, jacuzzi tubs, and private balconies make the perfect place to snuggle. For a truly special occasion, add a romance package to have items like wine, roses, and chocolate-covered strawberries waiting in your room. Both resorts offer relaxing common areas with wood-burning stone fireplaces, and Stephanie Inn’s dining room makes it possible to share a romantic dinner without leaving the property.
Views that Can’t be Beat
The views set Cannon Beach’s oceanfront resorts apart from other Oregon Coast destinations. Several lodging properties offer views of Cannon Beach’s world-famous Haystack Rock and the nearby Needles that dramatically rise from the ocean’s edge. Some of the best examples of these views are from balcony rooms in nearby Hallmark Resort and Surfsand Resort. Hotels adjacent to downtown offer views of the turbulent waters and gathered seabirds where Ecola Creek meets the ocean and north to offshore rock formations at Chapman Point. Properties to the south, like the Tolovana Inn, still offer Haystack Rock views and views to the south of Silver Point and its offshore rocks, with Cape Falcon looming in the distance.
Cuddle up by a Fire
There’s nothing more romantic than the roar of the ocean, and the glow of a fire, and many Cannon Beach hotels and resorts offer in-room gas fireplaces that will have you warm and toasty as easy as a flip of the switch. Some vacation rental homes come with wood-burning fireplaces stocked with firewood inviting you to snuggle up next to the glowing coals and enjoy the aroma that only a crackling wood fire can offer. The Surfsand Resort even offers Cabana service to set you up with your own beach fire.
Soak in a Jacuzzi with a View
If your idea of romance is slipping into a nice hot tub together with a gorgeous view, Cannon Beach is the place for you. A few luxury resorts offer in-room jetted tubs, some elevated to provide ocean views and a handful of classic hotels steps from downtown feature oceanfront hot tubs where you can enjoy one of those epic Pacific sunsets together.
Get a Massage
The ultimate in relaxation, a couple’s massage is a fantastic way to connect with your special someone. Some Cannon Beach hotels have massage therapists available for in-room treatments, so you never even have to step out of the comfort of your room. The Stephanie Inn and Hallmark Resort offer complete spa services with additional romance options like chocolate truffle body wraps and relaxing steam room sessions.
Have the Whole Place to Yourselves
Maybe your idea of romance is genuinely getting away from settings with other guests coming and going. If this is the case, a vacation rental might be just the thing. Cook a romantic dinner together in a full kitchen, enjoy the views from a beachfront balcony, or snuggle up next to a wood-burning fireplace and enjoy each other’s company. Local vacation rental companies offer a wide variety of homes in every part of Cannon Beach and the surrounding areas to fit your heart’s desire.
