From your balcony or whirlpool tub, you’ll have a view of miles of beach, and the ceaseless sound of the Pacific will lull you to sleep. If there’s a storm, or the weather’s chilly, you can turn on your fireplace and feel cozily protected and warm. That’s what Starfish Manor is all about. This boutique hotel specializes in romantic getaways, the kind where you can happily hole up in your oceanfront room and reinvigorate your relationship with a loved one, or with yourself and nature. There aren’t any kids around, and no barking dogs. The studios and suites are sweet and welcoming, with upscale features like kitchenettes with cherrywood cabinets and granite countertops, and those two-person whirlpool tubs with ocean views. The hotel is at the north end of Lincoln City, away from the day-trippers and casino traffic.
