watch the best sunset, see a magnificent waterfall, the best stroll
on the beach or hike in our forest. We've been here and done
that! That's what makes staying at a member inn of the...

history of Tillamook began in 1909 and is a fascinating tale of
nineteenth century European immigrants making their way to the
Oregon coast in search of cheap inhabitable land not already taken
by folks coming through on the Oregon Trail.
The innkeepers of
Sandlake Country Inn put on their concierge's caps and took Red
Chair to one of Tillamook's cooperative dairies. Many of the

generations and take great pride in producing...

Yes, we know, the snow hasn’t been that great, seems like winter
has forgotten about us here in the Pacific Northwest and sent it
all to the east. But there are a few winter storms lined out
to bring fresh snow to Mt. Hood and the Ski Resorts up on the
mountain. And participating innkeepers of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild have
created packages that include lodging and lift tickets. Stay
at a Guild inn and purchase single day or three day passes directly
from these innkeepers.
