I'm planning a spring break trip with my little dog Abbe for around the third week of March. I'll be traveling solo with her, and will be driving from Bellingham, WA to visit a friend in Corvallis, detouring to visit the Oregon coast in between. I'd like to stay in a place on or very close to the ocean, that would be conducive to reading, writing, and long walks with the dog, probably 4 nights total, anywhere from the north border down to Newport. I'm inclined to treat ourselves to nicer accomodations, but not a luxury budget. Cooking facilities would be a plus. Any suggestions? Thanks!
