Pricey but beautiful ocean front B and B. Rooms are cozy and romantic, with large bed, whirlpool, and fireplace. I thought rooms were small for how much we paid.

Back rooms have a view of Haystack Rock. You can walk from your room to the ocean. Ample parking. A bit of a hike from downtown Cannon Beach.
