While looking for a Marine Discovery Tour in Newport, I came across this little gem and one of the highlights of our Northwest holiday. We stayed in the Captain's Quarters. The decor was beautiful. The room itself was not only spacious and new, but comfortable and welcoming. The owners had thought of every little need before we even arrived. We also spoke with a couple others staying at Anchor Pier, and they were as exciting as we were about the find. The view was incredible and overall we really felt a great connection to the harbor by being a seamless part of it. It should be noted that dozens of California Sea Lions live in the harbor. We found them to be hilarious! For those not in love with sea lion barking, the hotel provides white sound machines and even ear plugs (another example of how they really think of your every need). We actually missed the sea lions when we left, but know some people may not be as in love with them as we were.
We also took one of the Marine Discovery Tours into the ocean and bay. It was fun, too! Since breakfast isn't included, we would recommend a quick drive to Nye Beach and Cafe Stephanie.
