Families with children aged 12 and up can enjoy a stay at Cannon Beach’s highest-rated hotel, which is set on the beach and offers comfort and elegance. With gourmet dining, massage services, spa treatments, Jacuzzi baths, and a gas fireplace in every guestroom, you’ll be in the lap of luxury — and since children under 12 aren’t permitted, you (and your teens) will have a very quiet and relaxing experience (unless, of course, you’re coming to storm watch!).
Rooms are spacious and well-decorated, with great views of the coast. Families can stay in one of the several suite options with king beds and sofa sleepers — like the Mountain View Suite or the Oceanfront Carriage House. In every unit, you’ll find microwaves, snack refrigerators, coffee makers, bathrobes and slippers, binoculars, complimentary drinks, free Wi-Fi, and even lanterns for a night walk on the beach.
When you wake up, feast on a gourmet breakfast compliments of the chef. Local, seasonal ingredients combine in a fantastic spread of fruit, scones, bread, jams, and hot breakfast entrees like stuffed French toast, frittata, and salmon Benedict. For lunch, picnic on the beach with a packed meal available for a fee. Finally, in the evening, wine and dine at the intimate Stephanie Inn Dining Room (reservation only), where you have the choice of a five-course dinner or a la carte dining.

Our recent stay at The Stephanie Inn to celebrate my birthday could not have been more wonderful! The views, room, staff (especially Dave), and food in the dining room were all outstanding. They even arranged for a bonfire on the beach (with wine, smores, chairs and blankets) the evening of my birthday - which was just terrific! This is an experience we will not soon forget ... and we will be back very soon.
We had a fabulous time here for our 30th Anniversary. Wish we had known about it sooner. The rooms were fabulous. Ours had a fireplace and was right on the ocean with an amazing view. There was lots of little touches that made our stay extra special. We will definitely be going back again!
