Top 5 Romantic Valentine Getaways on the Oregon Coast

Have you ever wondered where the best romantic getaways are found on the Oregon Coast?  The Oregon Coast is one of the most romantic and scenic places to visit.  There are several little Inns and Bed and Breakfasts cottages strewn along the Pacific Coastline.  It can sometimes be overwhelming when looking through all the possibilities.  I hope this helps narrow it down and helps you find the place that is perfect for you and your loved one for this special day.

I will never forget the first bed and breakfast my husband and I stayed in.  It was at The Rock Cottage Gardens Bed and Breakfast in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  They were adorable little cobblestone cottages tucked into the Ozark Mountains, surrounded by lush green foliage everywhere we looked.  Ours was the Amethyst Cottage, and was a scene straight out of a Thomas Kinkade painting.  Our first morning, we walked through beautiful gardens to the main house where we had a delicious gourmet breakfast.  The innkeepers were excellent hosts and we really enjoyed their company.  After breakfast, we took in some window shopping in the old downtown district.  It was fun exploring all the old world charm that Eureka Springs still has, it’s such a unique little place.


The Rock Cottage Gardens Bed and Breakfast

Maybe it’s the fresh seafood or the golden sunsets, but staying on the Oregon Coast for Valentine’s Day or an anniversary, or any day for that matter,  has got to be one of the best gifts one could give or receive.  When you hear the roaring ocean outside your window, it is such a peaceful sound.  Watching the waves crash onto the shore in a rhythmic motion is so much like watching a fire, you just can’t take your eyes away. Something about it draws you in and makes you want to gaze a little longer.

There are so many options for lodging on the coast, but a bed and breakfast for Valentine’s Day is so much more intimate and personally accommodating.  With winter rates still in effect, right now is the perfect time to visit.  If you really want a deal, book your stay for a weekday.  Wintertime on the coast is always nice, there are far less people and you will likely get to watch the storms from your warm Pacific Ocean retreat.

Here are the top 5 one of a kind retreats for your romantic getaway on the Oregon Coast.


Arch Cape Inn and Retreat in Arch Cape


If you’re looking for a magical stay on the Oregon Coast, Arch Cape Inn and Retreat is the ideal setting for you.  Placed against the densely forested  Coast Range Mountains, Arch Cape offers one of a kind views of the Pacific Ocean.  With a romantic feel, this bed and breakfast is surrounded by native flora and fauna that dominate the scene carrying you into a world of bliss.

There are so many outdoor activities for romantic adventurers to enjoy and absorb. Interpretive trails give you the chance to walk the footsteps of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. World-class hiking trails lead to beaches, mountain overlooks, and onto the historic Oregon Coast Trail.  Other activities may include whale watching, wildlife viewing, beachcombing, and discovering tide pools.  Close by, Cannon Beach has many top choice restaurants and art galleries to chose from.  Then you can end the evening by a crackling fire and maybe sip some fine local Oregon wine.
One guest says, “Staying at Arch Cape Inn & Retreat was by far the best experience I’ve had in awhile.  The rooms are perfect.  The grounds are pristine.  The evening wine social is awesome and the hors d’oeuvres are creative and delicious.  The breakfast is 5 Star quality, I thoroughly enjoyed it”.

Pana Sea Ah Bed and Breakfast in Depoe Bay

pan·a·ce·a (noun) a cure for all, universal remedy, elixir
The name says it all.  Here, you can wake up to a gourmet breakfast made from scratch and a fresh new main course is served daily making every morning a delightful culinary experience.  Stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and Fishing Rock State Park await you from the comfort of your luxurious room. Centrally located, Depoe Bay is the whale watching capital of the world.  It is not uncommon to see whales in Depoe Bay almost year round. This romantic inn is just steps away from a pristine, tranquil beach that’s tucked far from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.  Where you will be provided with the ultimate bed & breakfast experience surpassing all of your hospitality desires.
Some of the activities you can enjoy include walking wide open, seemingly endless beaches, playing golf at premier golf resorts on the coast, hiking through dense forested trails that lead to expansive ocean views, book a fishing or whale watching trip, horseback riding, whale watching, exploring tide pools, beachcombing, discover the many artistic interpretations at the local art galleries, or just come to relax and just “be.”   If this is the case, you may choose to just relax in the outdoor Jacuzzi overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the main floor deck, or book an in-room massage.  Pan Sea Ah also offers complimentary shuttle service for bicyclists and pilots with pre-arrangement.  The innkeepers are happy to help you find the perfect activity that suits you!
One guest says, “What a pleasant surprise to find the pictures didn’t do the Pana~Sea~Ah justice.  This place is truly a panacea.”

Newport Belle Bed and Breakfast in Newport


If you would like a truly one of a kind experience for this special holiday, a stay on the Newport Belle might be just what you were looking for.  It is the only Sternwheel Riverboat Bed and Breakfast in America.  This bed and breakfast offers fresh, locally sourced foods, suggesting the most pleasant encounter.  Permanently moored, the Newport Belle is 97′ long with a beam of 24′ and close to 3,000 square feet of living space on three decks.  There is lots of room to stretch out and relax while enjoying impressive views of the sunset staged beyond the Yaquina Bay Bridge.  Guests may choose the privacy of their own stateroom, the romance of the solarium for an incredible views, or enjoy the cozy atmosphere of the main salon.

Newport offers a variety for the urban to outdoor adventurers.  A long walk on the beach is a perfect way to spend some time together, to talk and be close and put aside the many distractions life has to offer.  Or you may choose to just stay in, where the warm wood pellet stove provides a romantic ambiance where you can’t resist to cuddle up with that special someone.

One guest says, “A stay at the Newport Belle is a refreshingly different and sort of magical experience.  Sleeping on a boat in a working harbor; breathing the wonderful fresh air; listening to the waves lap on boats outside your window; and sharing the experience with visitors from other countries all make for a great experience.”


Whales Rendezvous Bed and Breakfast in Depoe Bay


At Whales Rendezvous, you are in for a treat with whales being known to come within feet of the rocks at the property’s edge.  The incredible picture of the whale breaching above was only 30 feet from those rocks!  This is the perfect time to come watch the winter wave action and we are right in the middle of the whale migration (between December and March).  Between May and October, the resident whales come in a lot closer to feed in the Bay.  Watch the waves from your deck while you warm yourself by the crackling fire or enjoy a book in the beautifully maintained garden.  Then listen to the ocean’s orchestra of waves and enjoy the obscured fantastic views found here.  With attention paid to detail, this cozy retreat is carefully decorated with elegant antiques providing such a comfortable feel.  A garden style bathroom with pebble stone floors and matching cabinet top, a flower petal sink, tiled whirlpool jet tub/shower, and a cedar ceiling making you feel right at home.  When the darkness starts to settle in, a spotlight shines on the waves so you can still gaze in wonder even after the sun goes down.  In the morning, wrap up in a warm blanket and snuggle on the sofa while you watch the dramatic forces of the ocean. Then just in time, a delectable, hot gourmet breakfast is conveniently served to your suite.  

One guest says, “View unparalleled!  How fortunate we have been to stay at Whales Rendezvous, the gem of Depoe Bay!  Dian & Joe, you have built a beautiful B&B!  We had all the comforts, atmosphere & VIEW you can dream of.  Breakfast was delicious, Joe, fun in his chef’s hat; a great patio fire & lots of whale watching.”


Baywood Shores Bed and Breakfast in Lincoln City


This bed and breakfast sits on the calm waters of the Siletz Bay beaches of Lincoln City. With incomparable views of the ever changing tide, you are sure to enjoy your stay in these beautifully decorated suites.  Conveniently located at the south end of Lincoln City. Both spacious suites offering a 2 person Jacuzzi and all the amenities to make your stay a comfortable one.  Comfort is the number one goal of the innkeepers of Baywood Shores Bed and Breakfast, and it shows.

Lincoln City has a vast array of restaurants to provide what your palate desires.  There is almost always some type of event happening in Lincoln City, one of the hubs of the Oregon Coast.  The Bay House and Mo’s Restaurant are very nearby and both have very good reviews offering two very different atmospheres.  If you are seeking to try out Oregon Wineries, there are several just one hour east of Lincoln City towards Salem, such as Eola Hills Winery.  Lincoln City Outlets also has many brands if you have something special in mind for your Valentine.  Yaquina Head Lighthouse in Newport is only a short drive away. Enjoy the outdoor fire pit and when the sun sets in all it’s splendor, but don’t miss the starry skies before you head off to your awaiting suite.  While you’re here, during this time of year, try your luck at finding one of the many artisan hand blown glass floats found along Lincoln City’s beaches.  See my post “Top 7 things to do on the Siletz Bay in Lincoln City.”

There’s nothing more romantic than snuggling up with a blanket by a cozy fireplace spending time with your loved one.  After all,  we are blessed to have one more year together with the one we love.  Your special night is waiting for you!  I would love to hear about your experiences here on Oregon Coast Travel!
