ROMANCE ITINERARY FOR THE NORTH OREGON COAST
2 night Romance Itinerary
These ideas are centered around Cannon Beach and Seaside where our 3 hotels are. The Gilbert Inn, is a historical, boutique inn 1 block from the beach in Seaside and close to everything in town. All rooms have their own private bathrooms and a complimentary breakfast is served here. Enjoy staying somewhere that is not your typical cookie-cutter hotel. Enjoy the beautiful grounds for a picnic or take advantage of the firepit area.
Inn at the Prom is directly in front of the Gilbert Inn and is an oceanfront hotel. All rooms have fireplaces, kitchens and jacuzzi tubs here. Several rooms are oceanfront and have private patios. Others are one bedroom, so you can separate your living area from your sleeping area. Enjoy the firepit or lounge on the lawn right next to the promenade and beach.
Inn at Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach is made up of cottage-like rooms. There are several room layouts, some great for couples, and some for families. All rooms have kitchens and fireplaces and several have deep, jacuzzi tubs. Enjoy the outdoor spaces here with courtyard fountains and firepits. All hotels are pet friendly.
Before arriving, call ahead and have a Romance Package scheduled. Who doesn’t want to check-in and have beautiful flowers, chocolates and cider waiting for them?
Check-in, get settled and if the weather allows, take a sunset walk on the beach or explore the local art galleries. Find a local spot for dinner, Nonni’s Italian Bistro or Maggie’s on the Prom in Seaside are some walkable ideas near the Gilbert Inn and Inn at the Prom. Driftwood Restaurant and Lounge in Cannon Beach or the new, themed, steakhouse Gatsby's would be a fun, unique option. There are numerous places for wine or beer tastings, and you can walk to them from the hotels. End the night relaxing around the fire pit or by the fireplace in your hotel.
Wake up early and find some tide pools. Haystack Rock is close and has a lot to offer. Eat the complimentary breakfast at the hotel if you’re staying at The Gilbert Inn, or find a quaint bakery or coffee shop in town. Cannon Beach Bakery, or the Dough Dough Bakery are two good choices. Go on a local hike, or check out High Life Adventure Park for some aerial ropes courses if you’re feeling courageous.
Find a local seafood restaurant for lunch. Relax in your room, and enjoy the view if you have an oceanfront room at Inn at the Prom.
Visit local tax-free shops, including bookstores, bakeries and even more art galleries. Treat yourself! Find somewhere to indulge in dessert. Cannon Beach Chocolate Café for chocolate lovers or Sea Star Gelato for gelato lovers, you have permission to go to both.
Sleep in, enjoy the sound of the waves. Lounge in your room in your bathrobe. Drink your Sleepy Monk Coffee on your porch, or outdoors on the patio. Take a morning walk on the beach or on the promenade that runs along the beach. Check out of the hotel, feeling relaxed, refreshed and recharged. Rent a kayak or beach bikes and enjoy a little more fresh air with your partner. If you want to splurge a little, set-up a helicopter tour for an unforgettable experience.
