A Tillamook Treasure

No, it's not the home of the Spruce Goose, but frankly, I really prefer the Tillamook Air Museum. The Tillamook Air Museum is the largest wooden structure in the world! In 1942 & 1943, the U.S. Navy constructed 2 blimp hangers in Tillamook to house a fleet of 8 blimps. The blimps were used for anti-submarine patrol along the coast as well as convoy escorts.

Naval Air Station Tillamook was decomissioned in 1948. Only 1 of the 2 hangers is left due to a fire in 1992.

Since 1994, Hanger B has been home to one of the top 5 privately owned aircraft museums in the nation.

On your stay with us at Sandlake Country Inn, you might want to take a short drive into Tillamook to visit the Tillamook Cheese Factory and also to visit this one of a kind museum.

You're wrapped up in your kimono spa robes and slipper socks and are sitting in front of your own fireplace in your very private room/suite/cottage. No kids, no worries, just total relaxation. Here at Sandlake Country Inn, no matter what room you choose, romance is in the air. We provide the bubble baths, scented lotions, candles (battery operated), robes and the "Worlds Softest" slipper socks.

That's why we delivery your 4 course breakfast & hot beverages to your door in the morning. When you book a room with us we know that you are here to spend quality time with your loved one, so we do everything we can to make your stay an experie
nce, not just a place to rest your head. We also honor your privacy, but we are here if you ever need us.

Another great way to enjoy your romantic evening is to order our:
C
HEESE FONDUE FOR TWO - Perfect for a chilly night or when you don't want to stop for dinner before your arrival. Everything you need for a romantic light dinner for two. Cheese fondue, cubed artisan bread from a local bakery and sliced Oregon apples. Pair it with a bottle of wine from our gift area (extra charge).

Whether you visit us to celebrate an Anniversary, Birthday, Honeymoon or just a night away from the stresses of everyday life, let us help you plan your special getaway on the beautiful Oregon coast and find out for yourself why "Best Places to Kiss in the Northwest" rates our Oregon Coast Bed and Breakfast "simply sublime".

It's Been Awhile!



Well, it's been quite some time since I last posted. The summer has been amazingly busy and we thank all of our wonderful guests for their patronage this summer. We have had a record number of guests celebrating their Honeymoons and Anniversaries. We feel very honored to have played a part in your special occasions!

This summer we saw an increase in guests from abroad. Guests came from Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, England and many Canadians. I guess the decline of the US dollar has helped increase the tourism to Oregon.

Now it's our turn to travel! Ron & I are going to Germany for a couple of weeks to spend some of those Euros. The Inn will still be open and our "Innsitter" will be Annette, who was our aspiring innkeeper intern over the summer. Annette will be here the first 2 weeks of October and will take wonderful care of you.

After we return I'll post some of our photos and experiences.
