A vacation to remember A review of Surfsand Resort
We spent the week of the 4th of July at the Surfasand last year (yes, this review is long over-due). We had such a great time! I had never been to Oregon so I was not really ready for a "chilly" beach vacation, but we did have some warmer days when the sun peeked out & it was great. The 4th of July celebration at the resort & throughout town was fabulous. There were face painters at the resort, kids games and a hot dog roast. On another night we did indulge in a camp fire on the beach with a marshmellow roast. This was great fun for us & our children and we have wonderful sunset pictures from this night. I would agree that the ocean front rooms had great views, but there is a lot of activity on the beach so if you were needing some quiet (toddlers napping or early to bed, quiet time for you), I personally do not this this would not be the best location room wise. But if you didn't mind contstant activity & some noise, you would enjoy it. We were in the building that was next to the lobby and had a "peak" view. We enjoyed this quieter location & would opt for it again. If I was going back to Cannon Beach we would definitely stay here again. We also had a small kitchen & stocked up on breakfast & lunch foods so we only ate out at dinner time. We enjoyed all of the restaurants in town that we ate at. On a side note - the lobby did have a pc that we could use to check email at the activity desk, they just prefer it to be in the morning or evening when the activity coordinator was not working. My husband did need to check in with work a few times and he enjoyed this convenience of checking email w/o having to bring his own laptop. We also saw a wedding one day & it was done beautifully. They had a huge bonfire the night before after the rehersal dinner and the wedding was just well done & very beautiful.
