Oregon Coast Spring Break for Adults: Food and Lodging Monsters

Wheeler, on the north coast, has much for grown-ups

(Oregon Coast) – Spring and spring break are not all about the kiddies on the Oregon coast. True, there are loads of families roaming about the coastline and its tiny, charming burghs, in search of ways to amuse the offspring – and hopefully themselves in the end. But there are plenty of couples of varying ages without the little ones in tow who wind up with days or weeks off about this time, whether they be middle-aged empty-nesters or twentysomething newlyweds.

These folks are looking for a touch of the finer things on the beach. There are those who want a form of repose that doesn’t necessarily involve fast food, pizza joints or clam chowder. Some are seeking the relaxation of a perfect ocean view of manic storm waves or soothing sunsets, with a fire crackling nearby and a room that begs for romantic moments.

It’s for those intrepid explorers who venture to the coast during the spring break weeks of March and early April that BeachConnection.net has created this list of the finery – ways to avoid the throngs and noisy little ones and absorb the coast as it was meant to be.

Oregon Coast event or adventure you can't miss

Generously appointed rooms or spacious two-room suites. Continental breakfast. Heated salt-water pool and spa, fitness room, high-speed Internet, some Jacuzzi spas and ADA accessibility. Some pet friendly. Business and meeting facilities. Catering services available.

Stone Crest Cellar B&B. Step into an extraordinary home with unique architecture of log and rustic stone, set over the dramatic waves of the Oregon coast. An intricate 30-ft pine ceiling accentuates the cathedral-like windows, warmed by 30-ft. stone fireplace, bringing to this jaw-dropping B&B a vibrant sense of romance that’s somewhere between a woodsy cabin and a castle.
The surf lulls you to sleep in spacious and private rooms, beautifully appointed with antiques, fine linens and Turkish bathrobes, as well as wireless Internet access, TV and VCR. Some rooms are private and perfect for two; one is large enough to accommodate four. Complementary wine and hor d'oeuvres, tea before bedtime and full gourmet breakfasts are available.
As one of the entire coast’s most romantic settings, this bed & breakfast is home to an abundance of weddings, proposals, receptions, retreats and conferences, as well as weekends for wine enthusiasts. Some pet friendly rooms. In South Beach, just three miles south of Newport (first driveway past 95th Street and Hwy 101). 9556 South Coast Hwy. (541) 867-6621. www.stonecrestbb.com

Yachats River House, Yachats. A view as delicious as the food is on tap at this glorious little eatery overlooking the dynamic bay. The décor screams woodsy upscale while the edibles scream to be savored slowly and carefully, prepared by a master chef whose creations have become the talk of the town in this less-than-year-old wonder.

Try the “River House Steak Frittes” ($25), which includes all natural, locally farmed beef rib eye, encrusted in Tellicherry black pepper, with Rogue Creamery blue cheese-apple wood smoked bacon butter, red wine reduction, pommes frittes and sautéed summer greens. The “Pacific Halibut Dijon” ($22) brings to the table exquisite fish coated in Dijon mustard and panko bread crumbs, tomato-tarragon buerre blanc, horseradish whipped yukon gold potatoes and summer vegetables.

A1 Beach Rentals, Lincoln City. Perfect for large family vacations all the way down to a getaway lodging for two - with over 25 vacation rental homes to choose from.

The “Grilled Tandoori Chinook Salmon” ($24) is so good it hurts. Indian-spiced Chinook salmon is lightly charred on the outside, coming with apple-coriander chutney, fresh pea risotto and summer vegetables. It silkily sinks down your palate with a nice bite and a wonderful Indian accent.

Their sister business is Yachats Wine Trader, a wine bar, which makes for an incredible wine list. Do NOT miss the stunning innovative cocktail mixology by their very talented bartenders. 131 Hwy 101 North, Yachats. 541-547-4100. www.yachatsriverhouse.com.

Rick’s Roadhouse Bar & Grille

Classy yet not pretentious, this gem is another shot in the arm for Rockaway Beach, with the feel of a cozy, neighborhood bar you’d feel good about taking your grandma to. Exceptional food populates the menu throughout the day, such as the gargantuan toasted sub sandwiches. Turkey, pastrami, chicken and an exceptional Italian meatball sub all come with a gourmet touch (all around $8). There’s a hefty helping of coastal comfort foods, such as large portions of halibut and chips, prawns and chips, chicken wings, etc. Burgers have some nifty new takes, such as the chili burger, or the ones with cube steak or grilled mushrooms (all around $7). There’s a small selection of Mexican favorites, and some interesting extras like steak fingers, polish hot dog or egg rolls. They feature karaoke at night as well. 184 Highway 101. Rockaway Beach, Oregon. 503-355-2052.

Tradewinds Motel, Rockaway Beach. All rooms are immaculate and have TV’s, VCR’s and in-room phones w/ data ports.

Turk’s Lodgings. Just outside Cannon Beach, secluded in a primeval rain forest of the north Oregon coast, Turk’s Lodgings is a unique set of hideaways that are romantic, completely secluded and thoroughly breathtaking. Dramatic ocean views highlight each. The House in the Trees is part medieval charmer and part modern mansion, sleeping six and featuring a double Jacuzzi, large loft, massive rock fireplace, sprawling wrap-around deck and commercial gas stove, among other amenities. The Cottage sleeps four, comes with a Jacuzzi, large windows and skylights, full kitchen, woodstove and a hide-a-bed sofa in the living room.

S. of Cannon Beach, Oregon. 503-436-1809 (local). 1-866-906-8875. www.turkslodgings.com

Landmark Restaurant & Lounge, Yachats. The view here presents a flood of wonders from the natural world, including all manner of wildlife wandering past you. One moment, a seal is bouncing around the surf at the baymouth; another, something large, mysterious and unidentifiable comes slithering down the river into the sea - all for your mealtime amusement. Then there are those oddball, somewhat surreal times a local seagull gets greedy and begs for food through the glass. Ask the employees about these fowl: they actually know them by sight and have names for them.

It's a free show at this legendary "seafood dive," with one of the best views on the Oregon Coast - and some of the finest Italian cuisine in the state. Sauces are light, delicate and very subtle, yet with a tang that's potent but not overpowering. Other goodies include things like Halibut Fillet, Wild Salmon Fillet and Pacific Cod Fillet ($13.95 - $19.95) - all made from fish caught by local fishermen. Hwy 101, Yachats. Call: (541) 547-5459. www.landmark-yachats.com

Condo-hotel that offers the amenities of a fine hotel, but also includes ownership of a vacation home on the north Oregon coast. It is a unique opportunity, as condo owners have an opportunity to share in the revenues of their unit. All have either spectacular, nearly aerial views of the ocean and city, or they gaze out at the lush forests of the coast range mountains. There are private balconies in all rooms, which come as studios or units with one bedroom or two - as large as 850 square feet. Each is fully furnished. $189,000 to $449,000, (with most in the $300,000 range.)

Columbia River Inn Vacation Home A feeling of historic elegance will surround you as you enter this gracious Victorian home, set amidst the atmospheric streets of Astoria.

Enjoy a large well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, coffee makers, washer and dryer. Just off the kitchen is a small sitting room with a gas fireplace. A small indoor patio area overlooks the garden and gazebo. Of special interest is the Umbrella Pine in the front yard, considered to be the only tree of its kind in the Northwest. Sleeps 11 to 13 people. There’s even a working organ. 1681 Franklin Ave. (corner of 17th and Franklin), Astoria. 866-396-0404. www.columbiariverinnvacationhome.com

Village Market & Deli, Newport. It is still a bit of a hidden secret in this intricate and charming section of Newport that is itself a little off the beaten path, where fine wine flows with delicious abandon along with cutting edge cuisine.

Their menu boasts expertly done and innovative dishes around $8 – open for lunch or early evening snacktime only. A variety of heady gourmet sandwiches of varied layers and subtleties are on hand to consistently wow you, with loads of innovative concoctions that contain elements such as wasabi, a spicy and vibrant turkey and many other surprises.

Their house-made pate remains a huge hit (one regional writer proclaimed it “better than sex”). Bob Trusty makes it from chicken – and from scratch – and it is a buttery, creamy experience that is slightly orgasmic.

Some of their hot sandwiches have also been big hits recently, such as the multi-layered Tuscan Turkey (about $8), which features sun dried tomatoes, an unusually flavorful mustard and other ingredients to create a distinctive, bold experience.

For over 80 years a favorite of Seaside visitors. 51 oceanfront condos, individually owned and decorated. Suites for couples, small apartments with fireplaces and kitchenettes, one or two bed family units with fireplaces, kitchens and dining rooms. Oceanview cottages sleep anywhere from two to eight, w/ two bedrooms, some with lofts, fireplaces and kitchens. Heated outdoor pool, enormous grounds w/ picnic tables - all at quiet southern end of Seaside.

Lincoln City’s only resort hotel built right on the beach with all oceanfront rooms - nestled against a rugged cliffside overlooking a soft, sandy beach. Dine in penthouse restaurant and bar, for casual meal or candlelight dinner. An array of seafood specialties, juicy steaks and other Northwest favorites, including decadent Sunday buffet. Rooms range from bedrooms to studios to 1-bedroom suites with microwaves and refrigerators to full kitchens. Also, wi-fi, spa, saunas, exercise room and year-round heated swimming pool. Kids will love the game room and easy beach access. Full-service conference/meeting rooms for that inspirational retreat; extensive wedding possibilities.

Forestier” sandwich, a combination of mushrooms, chevre cheese and other fantastic herbs and ingredients. It melts and then floats on your palate in a dreamy manner.

In their deli area, they have imported a wonderful array of cheeses such as Double Gloucester Bandaged Truckle, Black Truffle Cheese from Il Boschetto, as well as some domestic favorites such as Ewe-F-O and Fog Lights (an eight-ounce version of the unbelievable Humboldt Fog cheeses from Cypress Grove).

You’ll also find some incomparable imported chocolates as well as intriguing American-made gourmet brands that will be a seriously eye-opening experience. Lofberg’s coffee, from Sweden, is also a magnificent highlight here, and not your average jolt in the morning from cookie-cutter stands or shops.

They gladly put together little “picnic baskets” of lunchtime goodies for your mid-day munch on the beach. They’ll bundle up sandwiches, salads, deli items, along with wines or beer in a charming way (boxes are tied with a bit of straw), and you’ll be on your merry way to enjoy the sands on a whole new level. 613 SW Third Street, Newport. 541-265-2257.

Arch Cape House. STAY IN A CASTLE ON THE COAST – just south of Cannon Beach. You have to believe it to see it. Ironically, you see Arch Cape's Castle Rock from here.

Look for East Ocean Rd., just north of the Arch Cape Tunnel. www.archcapehouse.com. 800-436-2848. Read the full story on Arch Cape House here.

The common room has a microwave and Internet access. The piano room is decked out in a lush red, stuffed with comfy couches and containing a nifty hammock-like seat. Each room has a vibrant charm to it that's the result of a myriad of nice little details - from the bedspreads and the art on the walls, to the intricate light fixtures and the stuffed animal you may find on your bed. There's also a masseuse in residence there. All rooms non-smoking. Hwy 101 and Gregory, Wheeler, Oregon.. www.oldwheelerhotel.com. 877-4theview.

Zinger's Homemade Ice Cream, Seaside. It’s proof that sweets aren’t just for kids anymore, and ice cream doesn’t have to taste like it came from a carnival. Dive into scrumptious homemade ice cream - plus they make their own fudge. Of note is their take on chocolate with malted milk balls in it. It's quite a mouthful. Or the powerful fresh fruit taste of the marionberry, using real Marion County berries. Also spectacular are the other fruit flavors, such as the tangy (and very real) strawberry, and the seriously wowing (but only periodically available) mango. All the fruity ones have chunks of the real thing inside, waiting to surprise. Sugar free and diabetic options are available, but mostly Zinger's specializes in frozen excess. Singles are actually the size of two scoops and doubles - well, they're twice as large. 210 Broadway. (503) 738-3939. www.zingersicecream.com

Sea Sweet Vacation Rentals.

One is a deluxe, luxury two bedroom, two-bath suite that sleeps as many as five, comes with a large Jacuzzi and features a beautiful kitchen and stunning décor. The other is a three bedroom, three-bath unit that houses eight people and has two Jacuzzis, as well as modern kitchen and a sense of the sleek and posh. Both have laundry facilities, TV/VCR and require a two-night minimum.

Pacific Oyster, Bay City. Just north of Tillamook, it's hard to get fish fresher than this, as it's processed right here after coming in from the sea. Sitting at the end of the dock, it's probably Bay City's only recognizable feature, with piles of shells near the landward side. But it's also a famous little family eatery, where the seafood practically gets shuffled from the sea straight into your mouth. Soups and salads include many seafood specialties, of course, including cioppino, chowders, crab Louie and cheese breads (from $3 to $14).

It’s true that kids will love this place, with its self-guided tour of their fish processing areas, but adults will adore the food, the outdoor seating, and ogling the two small shipwrecks next to the facility. 5150 Oyster Drive, Bay City, Oregon. (503) 377-2323.

Whistling Winds Motel, Lincoln City. Nestled quietly in a Lincoln City residential neighborhood, The Whistling Winds is a restored 1930's Motor Coach Motel with a hefty dose of historic charm as well as a sense of modern, slightly woodsy chic.
