This cozily appointed second-floor suite is the ideal spot for any vacationer craving a convenient, economical Oregon coast retreat. Whether you've come to work, to write, or just to enjoy a few days of hard-earned solitude along the Pacific shoreline, you'll love secreting yourself away in this snug and bright upstairs apartment, located on a quiet dead-end street in Tolovana Park.
Dolphin Inn South is situated within an adorable blue-and-cedar-shingled home that is a retired bed and breakfast. It features an open sitting, dining and sleeping area outfitted with a queen bed, simple wicker furniture and a small table. A mini-fridge, microwave, coffeepot and basic kitchen items are also available for your use. The studio is decorated in soothing browns and blues, with vintage dolphin and nautical embellishments adding a bit of fun and color to the layout. Look for the gorgeous stained-glass dolphin splashing across one of the east-facing windows, plus an antique scuba mask.
When it's time for a work break, step out onto the sunny, west-facing deck and catch a peek of the ocean – this spot is the perfect perch on which to relax with a cup of something steaming of a coastal twilight. You're close enough to the ocean to smell and taste its freshness, but if you'd like to venture further afield, you'll be glad to know that this pint-sized haven is located just a quick two blocks from the shore. There's also a gorgeously manicured front yard and garden, and the home juts up in back against a lovely old grove of trees.
When the sun sets, you'll enjoy cranking up the Vermont Castings wood-stove and making use of the TV/VCR. Or just turn the lights down and sink into the suite's inviting bathtub – it's your call. A weekend away on the Oregon coast doesn't have to be an expensive, high-maintenance affair: just pack your bags and point your car in the direction of Cannon Beach. A pint-sized bastion of solitude awaits you. The Dolphin Inn is a `retired` Bed & Breakfast--the owners have retired, but the Inn goes on!
