The Oregon Coast in the winter offers a different vacation experience than summer. Winter is a time that we find our guests wanting to retreat and relax… some come just to get away from the hustle and bustle… some come because there are fewer crowds and less traffic… some come to write or paint… and yet others want to experience winter only coast activities including the Newport Wine and Seafood festival, Lincoln City’s Finder’s Keepers, or the whale migration. One thing that I have heard repeatedly is that people love the storms in the winter. In winter the tides are higher, and the waves making their way to the shore can be absolutely massive. Oregon Live posted this great article about some of the best locations along the coast where you can watch the storms… We have properties located close to many of these and we’d love to have you come for a visit in our “off season” and perhaps you will come to love it as much as we do.
