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

While visiting the Oregon Coast, one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon, you won't want to miss
exploring the historic Lighthouses, the beacons of light of bygone
days. Perched on the very edge of land and sea, Oregon
Lighthouses were built to warn ships of the dangerous rocky shores.
The treacherous Pacific storms wrecked many a ship but the
lighthouses prevented even more from such fate.
Most were built in the late 1880's and
of the Eleven Lighthouses on the Oregon Coast, nine are on the

We've have discovered the joy in finding some new way to use the
fresh, local and organic ingredients found in abundance at road
side stands and farmer's markets in Oregon. In Oregon wine
country, you not only find wine grapes, but there are berries
growing on the sides of the road, greens growing in rows along
winding streets and huge gorgeous pears hanging off trees in the
orchards in the Mt. Hood region. So, how can it not be about...
Next week is the Annual Meeting of the

of the United States, with over 50 covered spans. These timber

sits on two and a half wooded acres surrounded by Giant Cedar and
Fir Trees and a small fruit orchard, a relaxing location to let
your worries slip away.
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
