My wife and I made our second journey to the beautiful Oregon coast in May 2013. After a long drive, we looked for a place to stay in Lincoln City, and my wife mentioned the Anchor Inn as a place of interest. When we drove in, we immediately felt at home. Misty was absolutely gracious, very accommodating and found us a great room for the night and at a reasonable price to boot. In addition to the room, free popcorn, and movies of our choice, was made available: so being romantics, we took up the offer.
Our room was very arty, eclectic, comfortable, and quiet. Of course being animal lovers, we were impressed with the cool dog paintings in our room. In addition to the paintings, the room came with a living area, a small but efficient kitchenette, fresh whole coffee beans with grinder, a nice comfy bed, and bathroom. The main building and dining area is decorated with interesting collectibles that will appeal children and grownups alike. Those who are history buffs will appreciate the Anchor Inn’s abundant maritime and naval artifacts adorning its warm walls and cozy rooms—And most definitely the place Hemingway would have loved as well.
Sadly, we only could spend one night at the Anchor Inn; but before leaving, we had a full breakfast, which was delicious and served by Misty, who kept our coffee cups full. We look forward to staying there again in the future. Until then, we hope the Inn will never lose its eclectic, arty charm.
