New Restaurant and Lodging Developments on Oregon Coast

Bay 839's interior has a chic, woodsy vibe.

(Oregon Coast) - Two lodgings along the Oregon coast have made some dramatic new changes, while one new eatery is making a splash along Newport's bayfront.

In Newport, brother and sister owners Ian and Danielle Clayman have come up with a nice shot in the arm for Newport’s nightlife and culinary scene. Bay 839 is the name of the new hotspot at – you guessed it – 839 Bay Blvd, on the bayfront. A glorious décor that’s part woodsy and part modern chic - and reminiscent of Portland’s Doug Fir Lounge - is the highlight in the restaurant portion, while the lounge itself gets even cooler and sleeker.

By day, the views of the bay are unparalleled. Later at night, there’s an awesome outdoor deck for the smokers from the lounge, but it’s worth a trip for the non-smokers as well to take in the fascinating sights and ocean air (although you’ll want to time it when the least amount of smokers are out there). During the day, it’s not a smoking area, however.

The new look at the Coho in Lincoln City.

The restaurant boasts a myriad of tapas-style small plates, which are curiously larger than you’d expect. A shellfish trio with gnocchi; a plate with misty isle beef, lamb and pork; wild salmon with crème fraiche, a delirious hummus combo, crab cakes and an olive and eggplant tapenade are all around $7 to $8.

There is, of course, a menu full of entrees. Plenty of big dishes in the seafood realm occupy that, as well as “steak frites,” braised veal, gourmet burgers, and a monster lemon herb half chicken ($9 - $26).

In the bar, there’s a hint of Frankenstein’s experiments in the gourmet vodka area. A row of jars containing mysterious objects are lit up in a funky way: these are in fact raspberries, kiwi, peaches and other lovely bits of nature soaking in vodka. They make their own here, and the results are stunning.

The upscale, cool lounge at Bay 839.

The then-alcohol soaked fruit gets recycled into other dishes, like some of the desserts, adding considerable spice and individuality. 839 Bay Blvd., Newport, Oregon. 541-265-2838.

Lincoln City’s the Coho Oceanfront Lodge (formerly the Coho Inn) recently unveiled completion of a multimillion-dollar guestrooms renovation.

The redesign of The Coho was led by a renowned interior designer, Ankrom Moisan Architects (www.amaa.com), and has restored this locally owned and operated hotel into a fresh, modern retro boutique that captures the beach palette, while bringing alive the coastal flavors.

“It always had amazing views, and after thorough research, careful planning and several million dollars, The Coho has been reborn and today is considered one of the best hotels along the Pacific Coast,” says Tim Crenshaw, the hotel manager.

Free, fresh baked cookie upon check-in is just the start. All rooms beachfront and up against Lincoln City's most famous stretch of beach: the D River. Each room comes as a suite or mini-suite, and has a kitchen and balcony or patio. Some w/ gas fireplaces, while all have a DVD Players; movies to rent come with free popcorn.

Along with the facilities renovation, there will be a multitude of upcoming expanded services at The Coho, including in-room massage by Back in Touch, wine tasting/social hours, gourmet coffee service with daily fresh-ground Sisters Brewing Coffee, and free homemade cookies available in the lobby.

The Coho is also looking towards an expansion in summer of 2009, which will add 14 oceanfront rooms and suites, a lookout deck with fire pits and seating area, and a public lookout park to the south of the existing facilities.
