Welcome to the Oregon Coast and Cape Lookout Bed and Breakfast
We take pride in offering you a clean, warm, cozy, delicious, relaxing experience here at Cape Lookout Bed & Breakfast.
We are located near Tillamook, in one of the most scenic areas of the Oregon Coast. Our home is located on two acres of wooded land on Whiskey Creek Road in Netarts, Oregon. We are 3 miles north of Cape Lookout State Park and Ocean Beaches. Please note that our accomodations are not wheelchair accessible. We regret losing out on someone's company due to this. We have two separate bedrooms, the Trillium Room Suite, and the FoxGlove Room, each with a private bath and a queen size bed with luxury linens. Trillium Room Suite is a larger room and is $148 per night, and FoxGlove Room is $135 per night. The Trillium Suite has an attached private bathroom and the FoxGlove Room has it's own private bathroom just across the hallway.
***Please note there is a two night minimum stay during the summer months and a two night minimum stay on weekends. Please call us with questions and to inquire about availability.***.
Check in time is between 2pm and 6pm, and early check-in (before 6pm) is very much appreciated. Check out time is 11am unless other arrangements have been made. Advance Reservation payments can be made here using PayPal. No checks accepted.
***Please call before using PayPal to confirm your room availability.***
There is a separate sitting area and dining table for playing games or eating. You may invite our new kitten Cabernet, to join you, or just enjoy his calm presence from afar. He is very curious and still learning, so please watch when the door is open. He may scoot out as he is still adjusting to us and in his learning curve. There is also cable television in the sitting area along with books, games, wireless internet, and many movies.
A scrumptious Breakfast is included with the room rental. Whenever possible, we use local ingredients and the meals are prepared fresh by our own Chef Jim. Please be sure to let us know of any dietary restrictions 48 hours in advance. Our grounds are quiet, with lots of hummingbirds, robins, and black-caped chickadees. When the grass has been freshly mowed, the robins are at their happiest. Our home is about 1.5 hours from Portland. Itís a very nice drive with the occasional wild life viewing.
Further south about 20 minutes is Pacific City and the Pelican Pub and Brewery Restaurant. It is perfect for ocean viewing and beach strolling. Between our home and Pacific City is the Sand Lake Recreation Area. It covers 1076 acres of open sand dunes surrounded by forests, and offers a variety of recreational activities. Just a short drive away is Lincoln City - Oregon's Ideal Pacific Coast Destination for fun, nature, relaxation and excitement.
Personalized service and privacy is what we are all about. Enjoy hummingbirds galore, during this time of the year we make simple syrup every other day so we now have some hummers that stay with us year round. Currently we have a set of Snow Capped Chickadees setting up housekeeping in one of our home made driftwood birdhouses.
We are a charming escape in a quiet setting and we strive to provide our guests privacy, comfort, and hospitality. It is very possible to find your own little world here on the grounds, but we are here if you need us.
Our home is a safe and secure place to unwind. On our grounds you can picnic, read, write, or paint the next chapter of your life. Writers and painters love to stay with us, our grounds and the surrounding areas provide inspiration with the peace, solitude, beauty, scenery, that will convince you why we chose to locate our bed and breakfast here.
We are a great stop for Bike Riders to have a day or two of comfort before they take off on their journey. Our grounds have ample room for you to dry out or lay around in the hammock and just relax while you seek the comforts of our beds and we make you a glorious breakfast which includes fresh eggs from our chickens. We use home grown herbs and our garden grown vegetables in season. During the season Katie provides fresh flowers for your enjoyment.
Another reason to stay with us is we are centrally located for day trips north and south and there is much to do in the local area. Jim has created itineraries for your stay at our Bed & Breakfast. Come home to warm cookies, a comfortable bed for the night, and our famous breakfast.

The picturesque town of Netarts is about a 2.5 mile walk and the road isn't bad. As you walk along, you will enjoy panoramic views of the bay and of the countryside. In Netarts there are two markets, Josies Market and a very small Netarts Market that also has a gas pump. Nearby, there is also a thirty-eight-mile signed "Scenic Drive" on a paved highway along the bays, wildlife refuges, and along three scenic capes. The drive starts in downtown Tillamook. If you follow the Three Capes Scenic Loop signs west, your drive follows scenic Tillamook Bay and the Bayocean Spit, along the Cape Meares Loop Road and through a mixed forest to the cape summit. Descending to near sea level at Oceanside, the route curves around Netarts Bay and through more old-growth forest to Cape Lookout. Taking Cape Lookout Road south through the Sand Lake Dunes, it passes the entrance to the vari-colored sandstone cliffs of Cape Kiwanda State Park then finishes with ocean views in beautiful Pacific City.
During summer, travelers will enjoy balmy, pleasant days in the sixties and seventies. Although winter days also reach into the sixties, fog and rain often obscure the scenery....... but if you've never experienced the rain and storms at the Oregon Coast you are missing out on one of life's rare experiences. There is nothing like sitting by a warm cozy fire here at Cape Lookout experiencing firsthand a Pacific Storm complete with thunder and lightning and the sound of rain and wind outside, it is something very special to remember. Most of the 100 or so inches of rain that we receive here, falls between November and March. It's the perfect time to get out of the house, bring a nice warm coat, walk the sandy beaches, fly a kite, or play frisbee, comb the beaches for shells or floats...... the beaches are less crowded, locals are appreciative, and you will come away with a new found enjoyment for all that the Coast has to offer in the off-season.
