Trip Report Trip report- Heceta Head Lighthouse B&B Oregon

Jump to last reply

Had such a nice time at this B&B on the Oregon coast, I had to share.

The Heceta Head lighthouse is one of the most beautiful spots on the Oregon Coast. The lighthouse keepers house is available as a B&B and a group of us rented it this weekend.

The rooms were nicely appointed, ours had a fabulous view of the ocean and the sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks all night long.

We had use of the whole house so we bought fresh crab in town and had a crabfest Friday night which we prepared ourselves in the available kitchen.

After dinner we walked up the hill to the lighthouse in the dark and enjoyed watching the lights beaming out to sea and reflecting off the trees behind the lighthouse. It was really magical.

The weather at the coast was fabulous this weekend with blue skies and no wind so we did several hikes down to the beach and some of the group went golfing. There is a great front porch with adirondack chairs for viewing the ocean and lots of warm blankets to cover up with if it gets kind of chilly.

Next am were were served a seven course breakfast which was fabulous!! Following that, there was a tour of the lighthouse available.
Some of us took a great hike which starts right behind the lighthouse and takes you down (but lots of ups to this trail too) to a beautiful beach only accessible by walking in.

I have lived in Oregon for years and this is the first time I have stayed here and can't wait to do it again. I think our group is going to consider doing this as an annual event.

I highly recommend this as a stop on the Oregon coast for both visitors and locals. And, if it turns out you do not have as fabulous weather as we did, they have lots of games, books, music and a piano for your entertainment- plus its just a short drive into Florence.

It was really a fun place to stay.
