Located about an hour and a half west of Portland, Stephanie Inn offers a refined and comfortable way to enjoy the Oregon coast. Within 15 seconds of setting down your bags, you can be walking along the wide sandy beach and admiring the silhouette of Cannon Beach's landmark 250-foot-high monolith, Haystack Rock. The somewhat formal, old-school experience includes a complimentary wine-and-cheese hour in the late afternoons, a nightcap in the evenings, and turndown service. Massages are available as well. The conservatively decorated rooms, a mix of deep reds, dark woods, and neutrals, are pleasantly spacious, with a sitting area and fireplace. Spring for a second-floor oceanfront room—or better yet, a third-floor suite with vaulted ceilings—to maximize that view. Given Oregon's unpredictable weather, you may find yourself curling up in the inviting library/chartroom with a book rather than strolling on the beach. If you don't opt for the formal reservation-only four-course dinner, then you'll need to hop in your car, as the inn is located a couple of miles south of the center of town.

"It's a special place with outstanding service." Named for the owners' daughter and modeled after New England inns, the beachfront resort wows guests with accommodations (in reds or ocean colors) that have gas fireplaces and wicker furniture: "I was ready to move in for life when I saw our room! Being able to hear the waves crash made this a perfect getaway." "Folks who understand the word hospitality work there, and they're very supportive of businesses in the entire Cannon Beach area." The Dining Room serves "exceptionally prepared dishes" with an emphasis on local seafood.
