Cynthia Morrow, Author, The Blanchard House Mysteries


Sandlake Country Inn
Cynthia Morrow

For the last 13 years, I've been the owner/innkeeper of our Oregon coast bed and breakfast, Sandlake Country Inn. My previous career was a professional violist in Los Angeles. Many colleagues and friends of mine as well as myself decided to make life changes and leave the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles and the music industry. One of those very special people to me is my friend and colleague Cynthia Morrow-Hattal. 

Just by coincidence, both Cynthia and myself (both violists) got married, changed careers and moved from Los Angeles to the Pacific Northwest within a month of each other in 2001! 

Now Cynthia is a published author of two wonderful novels, "Unstrung" and "Domestic Violins" which are part of her Blanchard House Mystery Series. Currently, Cynthia is finishing up on her third book in this series called "The Trill is Gone". These books are filled with insider information about the life of musicians and some of the colorful characters we've all known and dealt with over the years. Of course her characters are fictional, but believe me, as colorful as they are, they're tame compared with some of the real characters from our past!

Cynthia Morrow at Sandlake Country Inn
Cynthia Morrow at Sandlake Country Inn

About Cynthia Morrow:

    "My background as both a Hollywood studio musician/composer and clinical psychologist in Los Angeles has provided me with a wealth of potential characters, and the opportunity to observe the human psyche at its most banal to the truly terrifying.  I've been recording and teaching violin and viola in Kirkland, WA since 2001, having met and married the love of my life, Gary Hattal, a federal mediator stationed in Seattle.  My articles on various aspects of psychology and violence have appeared in professional journals, the  Pepperdine Law Review, and social commentary blogs.  Dear Abby has quoted my writings as an expert in human relations and family psychology in her column.  Despite this, I’m still a fun girl, as are my heroines, Althea Stewart and Grace Sullivan. "

How proud we all are of Cynthia and her talents and accomplishments! Be sure to read her books filled with colorful characters, humor, murder and love.

Sandlake Country Inn Baked Apple Oatmeal

If you are an oatmeal hater, this recipe just may change your mind! This award winning recipe has been passed down from the original innkeeper Margo Underwood and has been a regular on our breakfast menu for the past 25 years. When we (Diane & Ron Emineth) bought the inn in 2001, this oatmeal was served with each and every breakfast. As good as this recipe is, I knew that tradition had to change! We now rotate it as a side dish mostly during the rainy cooler months. 

The recipe below makes a batch of dry mix. It's super easy and you store it in an airtight container When you want to make it, just measure out 1 cup of the mix, boiling water, chop a little apple add a butter pat and throw it in the oven or toaster oven for 25 minutes. 

The recipe is easily adapted for many special diets:
Gluten free - just use certified gf oats
Dairy free/Vegan - remove the powdered milk from recipe and use soy, almond or rice milk instead of the boiling water


Sandlake Country Inn Baked Oatmeal

5 cups old fashioned oats
2 1/2 cups dry milk powder
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon salt
1 1/2 cups raisins
2 cups finely chopped walnuts
boiling water
chopped apple
pat butter


Yield: 1 batch
Approximately 10 entree servings

Mix all dry ingredients together and store in an airtight container. When ready to use, measure out 1 cup dry mixture into large ramekin. On top, place 1/4 chopped apple and 1 pat butter. Pour 1 cup boiling water over mixture and stir lightly.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. Serves 2 if using as a side dish. Serves 1 as an entree

View of 3 Arch Rocks from Cape Meares

Located along the 3 Capes Scenic Route in Tillamook County between Cape Meares and Cape Lookout, Oceanside and the 3 Arch Rocks Wildlife Refuge is located in a tiny hamlet with big views, beautiful beaches and an intriguing tunnel.   

In 1926 a block-long tunnel through Maxwell Point was built. It connects Oceanside beach with other beaches to the north, including Lost Boy Cave, and Short Beach and Radar Road, where an Infantry Signal Corps was stationed during World War II. Landslides closed the tunnel in 1979, but concrete extensions opened it up again, and a March 1999 a storm cleaned the tunnel out so thoroughly that it resembled that of the 1930s.

To get to the tunnel, just walk a little north from the beach entrance in downtown Oceanside. You'll see a sign warning you about falling rocks, so you don't want to hang around the opening of either side of the tunnel, but don't let it stop you!

Pacific City Bed and Breakfast, Romantic B&B!

Pacific City Bed and Breakfast, Sandlake Country Inn



Our closest town is Pacific City, Oregon, but our bed and breakfast address is Cloverdale. What's up with that??  The problem is with the post office and our rural delivery. We're no where near Cloverdale!

Where do our guests go to eat? Pacific City! Where is the closest market? Pacific City! So now you know why we call ourselves a Pacific City Bed and Breakfast.

Located along the Three Capes Scenic Route, Sandlake Country Inn is just 8 minutes from Haystack Rock in Pacific City, Oregon. We feel we have the  best of both worlds; A rural setting but only 1 mile from the ocean and away from the city, yet a short 8 minute drive to the small fishing town of Pacific City and it's magnificent Haystack Rock. 

http://www.sandlakecountryinn.com
Breakfast is delivered to your door at our Pacific City B&B


 What makes Sandlake Country Inn different from most b&b's, hotels or motels, is we are not the typical social experience one finds at a bed and breakfast. We offer large, private rooms with jacuzzi tubs for 2, fireplaces, private decks for each room and here's the clincher...we deliver your 4 course hot breakfast and beverages to your door each morning! Sit and relax in your robe and slippers that we provide for you, and enjoy your cup of home roasted coffee or other hot beverage in the privacy of your room. Then dive in to your sumptuous breakfast! No need to comb your hair, sit around a table with strangers or feel awkward with strangers over breakfast.


For guests who have never stayed in a B&B, come give us a try...you just might like it!

Devils Lake - Oregon Coast Activity #24 of 101 Things to do on the Oregon Coast

Devils Lake - Oregon Coast Activity #24 of 101 Things to do on the Oregon Coast

http://www.sandlakecountryinn.com/area-attractions.htm
Devils Lake



Devils Lake in Lincoln City, Oregon is a naturally shallow, coastal lake.  It has the distinction of  intersecting the 45th parallel, the mark half way between the equator and the North Pole. Another interesting thing to note is from it, flows the D River which is the world's shortest river which measure only 120 feet!

Devils Lake has a lot of activities such as boating, jet skiing, kayaking, and many other water activities. If you're interested in renting any water sport activity, the Blue Heron Landing can accommodate all of your needs.

You can download a Devils Lake Recreation Brochure HERE


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/f6/Devils_Lake_%26_Pacific_Ocean.JPG/250px-Devils_Lake_%26_Pacific_Ocean.JPG


 Legend OF Devils Lake:
The following story is a compilation of information supplied by Chief William Depoe, who told the legend of Devils Lake during the second annual Grass Carp Festival in September of 1987. Legends, much like a good wine, almost always improve with age. Such is the case of the legend of Devils Lake.
   The Siletz Indians were once fond of Indian Bay—or Devils Lake as it is now known—before it became inhabited with evil spirits. They hunted their game in the nearby forests and made their homes upon the scenic shores of the quiet lake. Their warriors, however, were lost to the evil spirits of the lake. As legend has it, members of the tribe used to meet on the shores of the lake during the moon of abundance to celebrate. Young braves would demonstrate feats of daring and strength to win the heart of the maiden of their choice.
   As the legend continues, a certain chief Fleetfoot despaired of winning the heart of the maiden he had chosen. In order to impress his young love, he dispatched his braves in the canoes out on the calm waters of the lake. Yet tragedy was awaiting the braves. As the moonlight shone down upon the serene lake, legend says, the waters began to churn and bubble. Giant tentacles emerged from the chaotic waters and wrapped around the startled braves and their canoes pulling them down into the murky depths. "Legend has it that the lake is quick to turn bad towards people," Chief William Depoe said, "Like a giant snake, it can raise up and pull beneath its surface whatever might be traveling across."
   In order to pacify the great devil so the Indians could resume their peaceful existence on the lake, the legend says, the Indians held great feasts and rituals on the shores of the lake. The drums vibrated and the voices of the Indian people echoed their melancholy beat until the dawn broke upon the horizon. At that time, the devil was said to rear its ugly head and then the sacrifice was made. It is unclear exactly what form this sacrifice took, whether it was maiden or beast, but the offering was the only method by which to satiate the hunger of the devil that inhabited the lake. "Legend has it that the lake could cause bad things to happen to people. To avoid that, the Indian people would offer valuables to the lake before crossing it," Chief Depoe said. "In that way, they showed respect to the power that it possesses."
  The hunger of the spirit that inhabits the lake has long since been appeased, but the legend itself grows with each retelling and the mystery behind the lake’s name remains unsolved. Today, the legend maintains, that those who cross the waters in the moonlit chill of night will still feel a tingle of fear as they cross the center of the lake.

Golf Courses on the North Oregon Coast - #23 of 101 Things to do on the Oregon Coast


 Golf Courses on the North Oregon Coast - Oregon Coast Activity #23 of 101 Things to do on the Oregon Coast

You won't find any world class golf courses on the north Oregon coast, but don't let that stop you. Some are quirky, some are historic and some are just plain fun.


Oregon Coast Day Trips from Sandlake Country Inn
Chinook Winds Golf Resort
Chinook Winds Golf Resort - Lincoln City
The 18-hole Chinook Winds Golf Resort in Lincoln City, OR is a semi-private golf course that opened in 1926. Chinook Winds Golf Resort measures 4636 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 102 and a 62 USGA rating. The course features 3 sets of tees for different skill levels. The greens are bent grass and the fairways are winter rye.





Oregon Coast Activities
Alderbrook Golf Course
Alderbrook Golf Course -  Tillamook
Opened in 1924, Alderbrook Golf Course is one of the oldest courses along the Oregon Coast. 95 acres of dairy farmland were transformed into this scenic and challenging 18-hole layout. Originally a nine-hole course, the layout has undergone major renovations over the years, including its expansion to 18 holes. Despite the changes, Alderbrook has retained its classic character and still gives golfers a classic round. The mountains that enclose the course provide a stunning backdrop and the rugged terrain of the foothills is ideal golfing ground. Forests of mature cedar and fir trees blanket the landscape, which is also dotted with natural springs. Alderbrook's 16th hole is memorable for its extremely steep incline, but a panoramic view of the Tillamook Valley offers some scenic respite.


Oregon Coast Activities
Manzanita Golf Course
Manzanita Golf Course -  Manzanita
The golfer who likes to play different kinds of courses will enjoy the uniqueness of Manzanita Golf Course, located off HWY 101. The 2,192-yard, par-32, 9-hole layout is constructed on a beautiful hillside that faces the pounding surf.
The course has many majestic fir trees, lush fairways, and well-cared-for greens. Hole #5 is a particularly interesting hole. The tee area is 80' above the fairway and provides a wonderful view of the hole. Only 280 yard from the back tees will provide the golfer with a great opportunity for an eagle.
Steve Erickson, owner and manager, and his friendly staff will ensure your round is enjoyable and satisfying. The pro shop has the latest in golf equipment and apparel and the snack bar can provide you with your favorite foods and beverages.

Seaside Golf Club
Seaside Golf Club -  Seaside
The 9-hole Seaside Golf Club in Seaside, OR is a public golf course that opened in 1921. Designed by H. Chandler Egan, Seaside Golf Club measures 2593 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 104 and a 33.3 USGA rating.





http://www.sandlakecountryinn.com/area-attractions.htm
Gearhart Golf Links
Gearhart Golf Links -  Gearhart
Although records indicate that the golf course at Gearhart was established in 1892, tradition has it that several Scotsmen laid out four holes on the wind-swept dunes in the 1880s. Gearhart Golf Links is the oldest course in Oregon.
Originally a nine-hole course, Gearhart Golf Links was extended to 18 in 1913. Today the golf course is 6,218 yards, par 72 and stretches for about a mile from north to south, with the width equal to about three fairways. The elevation is fairly constant, but the up-and-down roll of the sand dunes over which the golf course is built, makes a flat lie a rarity. Gearhart Golf Links' sand base makes for excellent drainage, and the encircling condo-motel units provide considerable shelter from the coastal winds. The golf course is generally wide open, easy to walk, and a pleasure to play.
