Experience the sublime at Arch Cape Inn, a castle on the coast surrounded by isolated beaches, rugged volcanic cliffs, and 2.5 miles of Oregon coastline. The exposed coast provides the perfect setting for experiencing the buffeting winds and swelling seas of winter while watching the waves crash against the rocky shore.

Located just 4 miles south of Cannon Beach, Arch Cape Inn offers ten unique guest rooms to choose from—some of which are also pet friendly—all reflecting different European themes, as well as a cozy common room and an outdoor terrace ideal for witnessing the raw beauty of nature run free. As safety is an important aspect of venturing onto the beach to storm watch, Arch Cape Inn provides a web page with information regarding the changing tides.

Whether you choose to brave the elements outdoors, or simply enjoy the winter weather from the comfort of the warm inn, Arch Cape Inn offers a safe, cozy setting perfect for watching the wind rage and the waves break.
