Not a traditional style bed and breakfast, Sandlake Country Inn offers a multi-course hot breakfast and beverages delivered right outside your door each morning. Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. Your innkeepers/owners, Diane & Ron Emineth live on the property in a separate building but are always here to help. Personalized service and privacy is what Sandlake Country Inn is know for. When your breakfast is delivered you can enjoy a leisurely meal either in your private room with dining table or on your private deck. 



The Rose Garden Room was named for the rugosa roses along the side of the building and a lovely tea rose bush outside the bedroom window. Not really surrounded by rose gardens, but we've kept the name given by the original innkeeper in 1989 because the feel of this room reminds us of the beauty and elegance of a rose.

The Rose Garden private bath has Jacuzzi bath tub & shower. The tub is a roomy size, but made for 1 person. If you're interested in a double Jacuzzi, our other 2 suites and Cottage may be the right choice for you. Your bathroom is supplied with high end all natural bath products such as bubble baths, body lotions and glycerine soap.


wood deck and lattice with round table and chairs

The Rose Garden Room's private deck is located only a few steps from your door. A great place to enjoy a meal or just relax. You never know, but deer often walk right by the Rose Garden deck to munch on the rugosa roses and take a nap under the massive 120 year old camilla bush/tree.

Sandlake Country Inn - The Timbers Suite

wood canopy king bed French doors leading to deck in country

The Timbers Suite at Sandlake Country Inn showcases the warmth of wood in our most rustic room. A large suite with a luxurious king wood canopy bed. In the Timbers Suite, you experience the history of our historic farmhouse. In 1890, the Struan, a large clipper ship, shipwrecked on a nearby beach. The cargo of that ship were massive 3"x12" timbers which were being transported to Australia where they would be used to build a bridge. The ship came aground and broke apart. The 3"x12" bridge timbers were strewn over the beach and became the building materials which were salvaged by a homesteader. The Timbers Suite will take you back in time, yet leaving you with appreciation of modern luxury.

A comfortable sofa sits in front of the real wood burning fireplace. No need to worry about bringing wood, Sandlake Country Inn supplies everything you need for that romantic experience. Enjoy watching tv or movies on the 32" flat screen tv with cable, dvd/vcr player and chromecast. Choose from our expansive movie collection, bring your own or stream from your mobile device.

Jacuzzi tub for 2 surrounded by wood skirting, bubble bath fluffy towels

Oh, what can we say about this double Jacuzzi tub except you really need to come and experience it for yourselves! It really DOES fit 2 people. We provide you with high end, all natural luxury bath products. Bubble baths, multiple lotions and glycerine soap.  There is also a shower in this amazing tub.

Sandlake Country Inn is a bed and breakfast, but not in the traditional style. Our rooms are set up for privacy and romantic getaways. We don't have large common areas or a dining room. We saved most of our sq feet for our large guest rooms. Each morning of your stay, a large multi-course hot breakfast and your hot beverages/juice will be delivered to your door. No need to get dressed, comb your hair or talk to anyone! We deliver your breakfast and beverages to your door. We knock to let you know it's there and we leave. You can relax in your Sandlake Country Inn robes and slippers we provide during your stay. Once you've checked in, your privacy is our utmost concern. We're here to help with anything you need or questions you may have, but we innkeepers honor your privacy. The wood walls in the Timbers Suite are the original salvaged 3"x"12" bridge timbers from the shipwreck. 

French doors leading to outside wood deck with table and chairs

The Timbers Suite at Sandlake Country Inn offers a private entrance from the garden. Enjoy relaxing with your morning coffee and frequently you may be accompanied by deer munching nearby. Our rural setting provides opportunities to view many types of wildlife.

Zucchini Fritters Recipe From Sandlake Country Inn

Sandlake Country Inn Zucchini Fritters

At Sandlake Country Inn, we do breakfast a little different than most B&Bs. We deliver your 4 course hot breakfast and your choice of beverages right to your door in the morning! I'm always experimenting with new recipes to surprise our guests and so today, after trying numerous recipes and putting my own twist on it is our Zucchini Fritters. 

These fritters are just one course of our 4 course breakfast. Also included on your breakfast tray or your breakfast basket is a fruit course, hot entree and a pastry item. Our breakfasts are "cooks choice" (that means me!) but if you have any dietary restrictions or allergies, just let us know and we'll do our very best to work around them.

Zucchini Fritters


1 1/2 pounds zucchini (about 3 medium) grated with the large size on grater
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning
1 large egg
1/4 cup flour
1 cup shredded cheese
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
3 tablespoons finely chopped chives
1 tablespoon cornstarch
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/3 cup oil
sour cream for garnish

Place zucchini in a colander set in the sink and toss with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Let stand 20 minutes, then wring zucchini dry in a clean kitchen towel. Place zucchini in a large bowl and gently mix in egg, flour, cheese, panko, chives and cornstarch. Season with salt & pepper.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Drop 1/4 cupfuls of zucchini mixture into hot oil, flattening slightly with spatula. Cook until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer fritter to a paper towel lined plate. If needed, fritters may be kept warm in a 250 degree oven until ready to serve.

Serve with a large dollop of sour cream.

Bacon and Egg Cups with Pepper Jack Cream Sauce

Oregon Coast Bed and Breakfast Food

Bacon and Egg Cups with Pepper Jack Cream Sauce

When creating new breakfast dishes for our Oregon Coast Bed & Breakfast, Sandlake Country Inn, the dishes need to be not only special and delicious, but also easy and quick to prepare. These bacon and Egg Cups certainly are delicious and easy!

We serve these with fresh fruit, homestyle fried potatoes and a delicious pastry or homemade muffin. It's a wonderful breakfast in bed or easy enough to make for a crowd.

The following recipe is for 2 people, but easily doubled, tripled or quadrupled, etc.

 

Bacon and Egg Cups with Pepper Jack Cream Sauce

4 eggs
4 slices bacon (I use pre-cooked Hormel bacon)
1/2 cup heavy cream (whipping cream)
2 oz pepper jack cheese, shredded or if using slices, crumbled
Pam
salt
pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 
In a bowl, crack the eggs and whisk with salt & pepper.

Oregon Coast Bed and Breakfast

Using a regular sized muffin tin, spray 4 muffin cups with Pam. Wrap bacon around inside of cups. Fill cups with egg mixture. Place in oven and bake for approx. 20 minutes. Eggs will puff high and collapse after a few minutes cooling.

While egg cups are cooking, place heavy cream in a small pan and heat on medium. Once cream is hot, stir in pepper jack cheese and continue to cook until cheese is melted and cream mixture thickens.

Carefully take bacon & egg cups out of muffin tin and serve 2 per person. Drizzle pepper jack cream sauce over top.

Tillamook Air Museum - Naval Air Station Tillamook - The incredible Hanger B


Naval Air Station Tillamook; Hanger B - Our National Treasure

Tillamook is home to the largest free-standing, clear-span wooden structure in the world. It covers more than seven acres. 

This historic building is 1,072 feet long, 296 feet wide, and towers more than 15 stories high.

Oregon Coast Attractions near Sandlake Country Inn
Commissioned and built by the U.S. Navy in 1943, it was constructed to house blimps for anti-submarine convoy escorts and patrols. Originally, 2 structures were built; Hanger A & Hanger B. Hanger B is the only structure remaining due to a fire in 1992. Built in just 27 days, the hangers could house eight K-class blimps!

The purpose of Naval Air Station, Tillamook was to watch over ports in Oregon and Washington and shipping lanes from California to the San Juan Islands. The LTAs (lighter than air) ships could stay aloft 48 hours, cruise at 50-67 knots and cover 13,000 square miles in a single day shift.

Currently, Hanger B houses the Tillamook Air Museum which is a private collection of vintage aircraft. A must see when in Tillamook!

Built entirely out of wood due to the limited supply of metal during World War II, it's currently considered the largest wooden structure in the world.
