Cannon Beach, Oregon may be one of the smaller towns on the Oregon coast, but it is in a class by itself, attracting visitors year-round with its unique mix of natural wonders and its distinctive arts-focused community.
Recognized by National Geographic as one of the most beautiful places in the world, Cannon Beach is an easy 90-minute drive from Portland or the Willamette Valley and a world away from your regular routine.
In this idyllic setting, Tolovana Inn offers beautifully appointed and spacious oceanfront rooms and suites with cozy fireplaces, full kitchens, and private balconies. You can relax to the rhythm of rolling waves, breath in salty sea air and take in stunning views of expansive, sandy beaches and impressive sunsets.
Outside, you are steps away from exploring unmatched natural wonders. Start with a short walk along the beach to iconic Haystack Rock. This singular landmark is a National Wildlife Refuge where tidepools team with colorful and vibrant sea life. An array of seabirds nest on the rock year-round. And an exceptional and comical colony of Tufted Puffins call the rock home from April through summer. Roosevelt Elk herds are frequently spotted at dawn and dusk, feeding on lush grassy areas around town, while migrating gray whales travel seasonally along the shoreline.
