The Inn is a wonder ful place for Whale watching, sightings occur during the spring and winter migrations.

Harbor Seals

 

Trail to Beach

The Otter Crest tide pools are considered to be some of Oregon’s most prolific and are accessible at low tide every day. The Inn’s private stairway leads to the beach and tide pools. Otter Crest Beach is a popular place to pick up many colored pebbles and agates. A stroll southward from the stairs takes you past a small waterfall to the cave entrance of the Devil’s Punchbowl, a natural formation that can be entered at low tide.

Nature Preserve

A 10 minute walk through our preserve takes you to Beverly Beach and the village of Otter Rock. Beverly Beach is a wide and pristine beach that extends from Otter Rock for 5 uninterrupted miles to the Yaquina Head light house. Surfers are present almost every day near the Otter Rock access. And it’s a great place to fly a kite.

Fun on Beverly Beach

 

Beverly Beach Treasures

Beverly Beach is thought to be one of the best places along the coast to pick up agates and fossils. About 15 million years ago many forms of shelled creatures were buried in the sandstone that is now exposed as cliffs along the beach. During the winter of 2011, an ancient stump washed in and lodged just below the Devil’s Punchbowl State Park. The snapshot shown here was taken in May, 2011. Another stump is on display at the Beverly Beach State Park about a mile south. It was carbon dated as being 4,200 years old.

Whale Watching

 

Ancient Stump

In Otter Rock is the Devil’s Punchbowl State Park with views into the Punchbowl, a collapsed sea cave. Whale watching is popular here and official whale watch stations are set up during the major whale migrations.

Flying Dutchman Fall Wine Grape Crush

 

Award Winning Wine

Otter Rock is home to the country’s western-most winery. Established in 1997 this small winery has gained national recognition for their unique method of fermenting their wines under the ocean’s salt spray. The Flying Dutchman Winery is open every day from 11 am to 6 pm during the summer months and 11 am to 5 pm the remainder of the year. Reservations for tours and barrel tasting can be made by calling 541-765-2553. See dutchmanwinery.com for more information.


Also in Otter Rock is an Oregon Coast icon, Mo’s Seafood Restaurant. Known for their chowder, Mo’s has been delighting seafood aficionados for many years.

Perhaps the most photographed attraction on the entire Oregon Coast is JoAnn’s 1934 Dodge Ice Cream and Espresso Truck. She, too, is an Otter Rock icon serving up lattes, espresso, ice cream and her ever present smile.
