The beach is a block away, so you’re not too far if you want to take a relaxing walk, build a sandcastle, or spend some time with your loved ones at the beach. We highly recommend making the short drive to Ecola State Park for stunning scenery, and a hike to Crescent Beach. This resort is not only family friendly, but also pet friendly with several pet friendly rooms to choose from.

The rooms at The Ocean Lodge have a fun beach vibe while remaining cozy and offering incredible ocean views and views of Haystack Rock. This monolithic sea stack has been featured in movies like The Goonies and Kindergarten Cop, and rises 235 feet into the air above the beach. It’s pretty from afar, but also a great opportunity to spend time with family at low tide looking for star fish and other ocean life that lives in tidepools at its base.
