Where is the San Dune Inn?
Located in the sleepy beach town of Manzanita
, the San Dune Inn embodies everything that guests love about the Oregon Coast. From the quaint clapboard exterior to the smell of the ocean—the beach is just a five-minute walk away—this inn brings visitors back to Manzanita year after year. With the buzzing activity of Cannon Beach only 20 minutes north, a day trip to the iconic Haystack Rock is always an option, but our Manzanita rentals remain a well-kept secret even during the peak summer season.
Things to do near the San Dune Inn
Experience an authentic small-town feel with the clothing stores, coffee shops, delis, and gift shops of Laneda Avenue—only a five-minute walk from the San Dune Inn. Taste wines of the Pacific Northwest at Nehalem Bay Winery as you listen to local live music.
If you’d like a little more physical activity in your vacation, Neahkahnie Mountain Trail is a fairly easy three-mile hike through iconic dense Oregon forests, and it ends with gorgeous aerial views of the Pacific Ocean. You could also drive 30 minutes to Ecola State Park, which Outside Magazine named one of the best whale watching sites in Oregon. Depending on the time of year, you may see the spouts of majestic gray whales. Be sure to bring your binoculars!
At the end of a long day of exploring—whether in nature or the local shops—return to the San Dune Inn for total relaxation. Our cozy studios and suites are perfect for any type of trip, from an intimate seaside getaway to a family reunion or corporate event. Tip: the entire inn is available to rent and sleeps 40 people comfortably. Each room has free WiFi with either a kitchen or kitchenette for your convenience. And best of all, your furry friends can join you in the sand and surf—the San Dune Inn is dog-friendly. No matter what you’re looking for in your next beach vacation, these Manzanita rentals offer the amenities for a carefree and relaxing trip.
