The Whale Cove Inn is that rarity on the Oregon Coast: luxurious but understated. Calm and delightful, not overstuffed. The rooms (suites really) are enormous -- bedroom, living area, bathroom, deck. Lots of room to spread out and relax. And the views of Whale Cove and the ocean are first class.
Restaurant Beck, which is independent of the Inn but located inside it, is also great. It is a true gourmet experience, not a typical coast-style chowder and grilled seafood place (although those can be wonderful too, of course). This is more for that special occasion or pamper yourselves meal.
My only mild negative is that I thought the breakfast could have been a bit better -- but it was good, and perhaps it just suffered in comparison to the Beck dinner.
Overall, we loved it at Whale Cove Inn, and we can't wait to go back.
