The Stephanie Inn is the most classically romantic inn on the Oregon coast—the perfect place for an anniversary or other special weekend away. With flower boxes beneath the windows and neatly manicured gardens by the entry, the inn is reminiscent of New England's country inns, but the beach out the back door is definitely of Pacific Northwest origin. Inside, the lobby feels warm and cozy with its river-rock fireplace, huge wood columns, and beamed ceiling. The guest rooms, all individually decorated, are equally comfy, and most have double whirlpool tubs and gas fireplaces. The beds have fine linens, TempurPedic mattresses, and of course there’s evening turn-down service with chocolates. The higher you go in the three-story inn, the better the views and the more spacious the outdoor spaces (patios, balconies, and decks). A bounteous breakfast buffet is served each morning, and complimentary afternoon wine and evening nightcaps are also served. The restaurant is a fine-dining haven. And here’s something special to consider if you decide to stay at this highest-of-high-end beach hotels: For $69 they will build you your very own bonfire on the beach.
