Martin Hospitality oversees five of the coast’s most prominent destinations: Cannon Beach’s Stephanie Inn, Surfsand Resort, The Lumberyard Rotisserie & Grill and The Wayfarer Restaurant & Lounge, as well as The Inn of the Four Winds in Seaside. All of these, along with the Old Wheeler Hotel in Wheeler and Cannon Beach Fultano’s Pizza are spotlighting some remarkable means of romantic repose and relaxation, with a variety of specials to lure the soul and the body to an intense place of otherworldly pleasures.

Fultano's, Cannon Beach

At Cannon Beach Fultano’s Pizza, indulge your sweetheart in a bit of sweets, and maybe some wine or beer. On February 14, Fultano’s features the “Couple’s Valentine Special” as well as the “Family Valentine’s Special,” both for $25 (and both actually at a $35 value). Take in the inherently romantic atmosphere of Fultano’s, with its red surroundings and cozy brick fireplace. Yet, this pizza place is equally family friendly – a rare find for a restaurant to work with both romancers and families. Fultano’s is also known for its gourmet pizza and legendary homemade pastas, rightfully calling itself “gourmet at a family pizza joint price.”

The couple’s special consists of a large heart-shaped pizza with one topping, two beverages (beer or wine), a sinful dessert and a special candle for your supper, all for $25.

The family special features a large one-topping pizza, eight breadsticks and a pitcher of soda, also for $25. 200 N. Hemlock (entrance on 2nd St.) 503-436-9717. www.cbfultanos.com.

Old Wheeler Hotel

The weekend just after Valentine’s Day is all booked up at the stately Old Wheeler Hotel in scenic and quirky Wheeler, but with the holiday falling in the middle of the week, there is much availability on that day as well as the weekend prior to the 14th.


THE TIDES BY THE SEA, Seaside. 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.

Heated outdoor pool, enormous grounds w/ picnic tables - all at quiet southern end of Seaside. 2316 Beach Drive. 800-548-2846. www.thetidesbythesea.com.

As owner Winston Laszlo put it: “It would be a truly romantic gesture to skip a day of work and take your sweetheart to the wonderfully romantic Old Wheeler Hotel.”

Valentine’s Day itself still falls under their weekday winter rates, which is as little as $55 per night, up to $75 on other rooms. “That's less than a bouquet of flowers and a lot more fun,” Laszlo said.

For the holiday, they’re also offering a special touch with a special bear in his PJ’s. “We’ll include our mascot teddy bear, ‘PJ,’ who will be waiting for you on the bed, already in his Old Wheeler Hotel pajamas, for an additional $15,” Laszlo said.
