Just thought I'd write a few thoughts about our recent stay in Cannon Beach for anyone planning to visit. The weather, lucky us, was incredible! We had mostly sunshine and incredible sunsets.
We researched various places to stay with a dog and liked the idea of a house rental. We wanted to be close enough to walk to town and have a view. We ended up renting the Vista Cottage which was a little too rustic for my liking, but because of the weather and the incredible view from the deck, it ended up being okay.
Some restaurants are closed mid-week (not sure if it's just this time of year), but we found the food bar was set fairly low. Our favorite restaurants were EVOO (a wonderful dining experience) and the Irish Table (great food at reasonable prices). The others were visited were either just barely okay or just not good at all: The Wayfarer, Fultano's Pizza, Local Grill & Scoop. We also got fantastic scones at Waves of Grain.
Cannon Beach is a very dog friendly town which we appreciated. Some shops are okay with dogs coming and as well as a couple of restaurants in their outdoor areas.
I can't wait until next fall to go back!
