We stayed at the McBee Cottages in Cannon Beach for one night in may 2010.
You need to pick up the key to your cottage in the hotel just a little bit further down the road. The clerk was friendly, but forgot to give
the password for the free wi-fi, so we had to return. The wi-fi signal is not very strong, but it works fine.
We also gave the coupon for a $ 20 dollar discount which you get when you book
your cottage online. The $20 was refunded as promised when our VISA bill came, so that was nice. This meant even more the cottage was
The clerk was on automatic pilot when telling me all we needed to know, since I heard the exact same stuff when I was waiting and another
vistitor was picking up her key.
The cottage itself. One word: cozy. There is a stove, bed, chairs, table, cupboard, extra blankets. The only downside is that there are just a few
utensils and no sink to do your dishes. There is a microwave, fridge with a small freezer, so besides the sink, everything you need.
The bathroom is small, with a really tiny washbasin, a toilet and a shower with hot running water. All very clean!
It was chilly at night, even in the cottage, so we put the stove to full use!
We arrived just in time around 9 for sunset at the beach and Haystack rock just around the corner from the cottage. It's about a 2 minute walk!
Next day we got up at 5AM to watch sunrise. The feeling is incredible. There's hardly anyone at the beach but the seagulls. You can watch the colored starfish
at Haystack Rock and the nearby rocks.
The town itself is rather small. The clerk at the hotel told us we could get a discount for dinner at the hotel restaurant, but we preferred to go to the local
convenience store which was still open to get ourselves a snack and put it in the microwave at the cottage and some nice Ben & Jerry's ice cream bars.
There is no gas station in town but there are on your way to Astoria.
Would definitely stay here again.
