My wife and I had the pleasure of spending two nights at the Whale Cove Inn, one of the most memorable places we have ever stayed at. There are only nine or ten rooms, all of which have a view of the cove and the Pacific Ocean. Our suite had everything you could ask for -- a large living area,... More

This is a great place to get away and relax. The suites are spacious, the staff friendly and helpful, the view - amazing! There is a tub out on the deck so you can bathe as you watch the waves. Even though it was November and rather cool, we gave it a try and it was great! We definitely plan... More

Whale Cove Inn is amazing. The layout of the Inn and its rooms are all about the view. And what a view it is! The Inn's personnel made me feel like I had been coming to the Inn for years. The restaurant in the Inn is very good for breakfast and dinner. Thank you for a wonderful three nights. Loved... More

For a special treat I don't think you can find anything better. You might have to save up for a year because this place is expensive but well worth it. We live on the Oregon coast and have always wanted to stay at the Whale Cove Inn and this year on our anniversary we decided to do it. We had... More

This property is one of the most beautiful accommodations we've been fortunate to have visited. Everything was perfect- the room- the view- the location- the service- the people- It was very hard to leave- we will definitely return! We could not have asked for anything more! Thank you to all who made our stay so memorable!

Several years back during a weekend excursion to the coast, we stopped to checkout the Whale Cove Inn and stayed for dinner. At the time, we said that when we got married we'd have to stay at the Inn for our honeymoon. And we did... It was an amazing stay; the room was exquisite, the food fabulous, while Sarah and...

This was our 1st stay at the Whale Cove and it definitely won't be our last. We stayed here to celebrate our 15 year anniversary and I have to say it is the nicest place we have stayed out of all of our pacific NW coastal trips. It was a full house but you would have never known it -... More

The view was wonderful, (3rd floor) Very clean rooms. Front desk reception showed us to our room where soft music was playing, a nice touch. We were given the 'tour' of our room and how all worked.

Whale cove was a very interesting experience, with both pros and cons… Starting with the positive, the location is amazing, it has one of the best views in all of the Oregon Coast. I loved the fact that you can see whales all the time. The building is very modern, classy and luxurious, nothing like the rest of the B&Bs... More
