Oregon's Stephanie Inn Named Among '15 Best Beach Resorts in U.S.' by Travel+LeisureSource: Google Street View

The Stephanie Inn of Cannon Beach has bagged a prestigious spot on Travel+Leisure's list of the "15 Best Beach Resorts in the U.S.," basking in the national spotlight as an Oregon treasure. OregonLive reports that the beloved inn is the sole representative from the Pacific Northwest to make this exclusive lineup, setting a new benchmark for coastal hospitality in the region.

Noted for its postcard-worthy view of the iconic Haystack Rock, the Stephanie Inn boasts well-appointed rooms that seem to have wowed the magazine, with OregonLive describing "a wine and beer gathering every day in the library" and "an evening nightcap around the fire" as key elements of the experience. Despite the quality of the amenities, none could outdo the resort's prime beachfront setting for drawing guests.

Nearby attractions aside, the inn is celebrated for its sense of community that sparks amongst visitors, something that Travel + Leisure highlighted in their commendation. "Part of the appeal of Stephanie Inn is community; every day, guests are invited to mingle over a wine and beer gathering in the library as well as an evening nightcap around the fire,” KOIN echoes from the magazine's report. The ability to connect with fellow travelers is an integral piece of what makes a stay at the Stephanie Inn remarkable.

The list of exemplary beach resorts was not limited to the shores of Oregon. Far stretching to include Montage Laguna Beach in California, acclaimed for views arguably rivaling the likes of Positano, it was noted by Travel + Leisure for its "unbeatable" vistas and service that goes above and beyond. KOIN emphasizes that alongside the Stephanie Inn, other high-flyers like The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina and The Cloister at Sea Island in Georgia solidify their dominion in the top tiers of beachfront luxury. Embracing fine Southern charm, these giants command a presence with their upscale amenities and picturesque settings.

Whether it's gathering for libations and conversation or soaking in the expanse of the Pacific, the Stephanie Inn, nestled in the quaint ambiance of Cannon Beach, shows that the Pacific Northwest can hold its own against the nation's prime vacation spots. The hotel, open for decades, with rooms featuring private balconies and cozy fireplaces, serves not just as a place to stay but as a home away from home, as testified by the endorsements of publications and guests alike.
