We know what you’re thinking: there is absolutely no good reason to go outside—it’s cold, it’s dark, and it’s raining. But if you don’t get out of the house soon you’re going to go stir-crazy, right?
When this happens to us, we head down to The Ocean Lodge at Cannon Beach for an upgrade in scenery and a little relaxation. The Lodge is a cozy retreat right on the beach, offering spectacular views of the Pacific, friendly service, and comfy, clean rooms. Every room has a fireplace, a small kitchen area, and a flat-screen television with a DVD player. Some rooms also accommodate pets, feature a Jacuzzi, or offer oceanfront views. The Lodge doesn’t skimp on freebies either, offering free DVD rentals, board games and books to borrow, a continental breakfast and pastries, homemade cookies, and warm drinks.
If that’s not incentive enough, keep in mind that while ski lodges are gouging wallets, The Ocean Lodge is giving away three-night stays for the cost of two. It’s the perfect opportunity to plan a romantic vacation with your girl or escape the cold and grayness solo. Photos courtesy of theoceanlodge.com.
