Perched upon the Oregon coastal cliffs, the stunning Inn at Otter Crest features 35 acres of lush forests, with many nature trails running through it, behind and around the property, and striking ocean views to the west. The Inn also has its own tide pools and resident harbor seals on Otter Crest beach. If that’s not enough nature, a pod of gray whales can often be seen from guestroom private balconies. Larger suites can accommodate families and the lofts and studios come complete with fireplaces and full kitchens. During your stay, enjoy the outdoor heated swimming pool with hot tub and Jacuzzi, tennis courts, duck pond, and activity room with video games and a children’s playground.

Last time I stayed here was in 1986 during the 4th of July weekend.
The positives of this visit were the view, the peace and quiet, the comfortable bed and room, the help from the staff to get luggage to/from room (you can't drive your car to your room and they use large golf carts to take guests to/from room to vehicle.
The negatives were the hot water temperature. You have to be very careful, when taking a bath, as it doesn't seem set to a safe temperature and you can very easily scaled yourself. They don't provide shampoo, so bring your own. The towels were sub par and rough. The fitness center was small, but did the job.
I would visit again if given the chance.
This resort is beautifully situated right on the coast of Oregon. The view from our unit was great. The surrounding are is gorgeous. The wineries in the Dundee area weren't that far and were just fabulous!!
