BEAUTY AND THE BREAKERS IN DEPOE BAY

TROLLERS LODGE - Depoe Bay. Insanely adorable, this collection of charming rooms and awe-inspiringly beautiful vacation rentals overlooks the drama of the waves in this area. The rooms and suites in the motel section are impeccably maintained, with a personal touch in the décor (partially through some whimsical handmade items created by owner Rick Leoni). You’ll find a lovely garden area, porch with a wonderful view, gas grills with a picnic spot, phones, cable TV and some rooms with incredible ocean views. It’s also very pet friendly – as the presence of the adorable ambassadorial lab named Samantha can attest to.

Three truly remarkable vacation homes are available, starting at $150 a night. The Gardner House is right above the ocean and has two apartments – one with two bedrooms and the other with one. There’s a stairway to the tide pools just below. The Pelican Cottage boasts panoramic ocean views from each room, a full kitchen, large living room and dining room, plus a patio on the first floor and a stunning deck on the second. The Cummings House has a fantastic view of the waves, one bedroom, full kitchen, living room and all the amenities. Conference rooms are available and Trollers Lodge is within close walking distance to all of Depoe Bay’s many attractions and eateries. 355 SW Hwy 101, Depoe Bay * (800) 472-9335 or (541) 765-2287. www.trollerslodge.com.
