... 20 runs east through the Coast Range all the way to Boston at 3,365 miles and makes this the longest road in America!!
Again the scenery along this coastline is breathtaking and we are so pleased that we have been able to experience it first hand.
Enjoy our trip along the coast so far - more to follow, of course. Off to Florence, OR next.
... first cup was done. We drove into the town of Yachats proper and had a nose around. There isn't much but it is a nice little town. The Mercantile was fun to walk around. We'll likely be back. A local told Mel that when it's warm in the interior it draws the cold sea breeze and fog inland. Sure enough, it's in the thirties in Eugene, our next stop three days hence. We lunched at Luna Sea Fishhouse and had some incredible seafood: fish tacos for ...
We continued west after a few awesome days in Portland, and hit Canon Beach, Oregon. I don't know what exactly I was expecting, but Canon Beach was a wonderful surprise. As soon as we parked the car, we could hear and smell the ocean. I looked over at the huge childish grin on Jonas's face, and we trekked over the dunes to the beach.
"Whoa!!! The BEACH!" I shouted. No offense Vancouverites, but there are no beaches in Vancouver. There are some rocky/sandy bits where you can ...
... of days! We had very strong gusts of wind through The Dalles and you can see the whitecaps on the Columbia in some of my pictures. At one point there was also a great rainbow created with the spray from the water. The wind continued until we were through the Cascade Range and approaching Portland.
The sun broke through the clouds on our trip south through the valley on I-5 to Corvaillis ...
... City I bumped into my buddy Gunther the German again. He's full of beans having taken it very slowly down the coast I missed on my sidebar to Portland.
On again the next morning south on 101 towards Waldport. The scenery along the way - once the early fog lifted - was beautiful. Gunther caught up with me as I stood taking a photo and we cycled on together - good to do for a change.
We'd been talking during the day of bike problems and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Adobe Resort Yachats
We stayed at the Overleaf for a night, couldn't get another night as the room we wanted was booked so moved to the Adobe. We couldn't leave. It's fabulous, better than the Overleaf, not as trendy and you don't get the hair conditioner in the bathroom but it's less expensive, closer to the surf action, quieter rooms, the beds are more comfortable and it's convenient because it has a restaurant on site. The food was good. If you get a room with breakfast or dinner included it's an incredible deal. We rented a room with an ocean view on the third floor, a spa room for a night and then back to another ocean view room for three more nights. The spa rooms are newer and the beds a little softer and the spa was nice, a bigger room but if you don't want to spend that much the ocean view rooms on the third floor are wonderful.
The Adobe was the highlight of our recent stay in Oregon. The sauna/steamroom was the best conditioned i've ever been in. Living in California I have zero chance of getting a SPECTACULAR ocean view room like we had at The Adobe unless I hit the lotto. Next time we're staying longer.
Best Stay of the trip
Great place, ideal location,any closer to water and you,d have wet feet.Good food,good service and people, we were going to stay one night, ended up for four.
Try and get a gound floor with patio, over looking ocean, if you can afford it get one of the jacuzzi suites.
The rooms were great, the location ,well ,as good as it gets, nice place to relax, then fall sleep with the waves crashing.
By the way, while there we looked at the other hotels in town,tho some say they like the Overleaf I think it pales to the older Adobe.
we stayed her for our anniversary jan 8-9 and we could not have been happier!! The veiws, the food, the mighty waves, everything was fantastic! the best part was the evening in the lounge where the live entertainment and good company kept us up late while the storm raged outside. the room was good and the jacuzzi was awesome. we would love to come back again !!!
Our favorite place on the Oregon Coast
The most romantic place to stay. Wonderful in-room jacuzzi, wonderful ocean view, wonderful Sunday Brunch. Nothing beats soaking in the tub with bubbles, candles and the ocean crashing against the rocks. We love it and keep coming back.
The "WONERFUL" Adobe
It is simply the best spot on the whole Oregon coast to spend fun, love and viewing filled times & pleasures with family and/or friends. We give them a 9 on my scale of 1-10, and we've been up and down this coast. Myke & Carol Crowe.
Stayed for a Week
Great package deal included breakfast. I thought I was getting a room, but got a suite with 2 tv's, washer/dryer and completely furnished kitchen. Walked on 804 trail right outside and watched stormy seas while eating breakfast. The food is ok, but the view makes up for any shortcomings. The help is friendly and service is great.
Just a warning, the buzzer that sounds when the room doors unlock can be heard up and down the hall during the rush (check in) hours so don't try to take a nap!
Absolutely awesome sunsets, surf, and private beach...watched whales and seals offshore two afternoons. Wonderful dining room and spectacular sunsets. Tidepools to wander - saw starfish, sea anenomes, etc. Enjoyed searching through the agates on the beach in front of the resort. Very romantic setting, all the amenities, and the best of the Oregon coast!
If you can picture sitting in a large jetted tub with your wife, candles glowing and the pacific ocean crashing against the rocks just yards away, then you have found the right place. We loved it and will spend future anniverseries here.
Luxury Cliff Dwelling on the Pacific
The Adobe seems pleasant enough from the Coast Road, but the rooms are spacious, inviting and well equipped. The two fantastic aspects are the the views! The views are Interactive! Many waves crash on the cliffs outside the room and restaurant windows with such force as to spray observers with salty mist. Leave the window open a crack at night and luxuriate on the soothing sounds of waves flowing, crashing and ebbing as gulls and eagles call across the centuries to other adventurous souls who have passed that way before. Then wake to the smell of rich coffee and sumptuous waffles wafting up from the five star restaurant-with-a-view below. You won't want to leave. I know we wanted to stay indefinitely! Treat yourself to romance with someone you love.
