Red Chair Travels to Sandlake Country Inn

The Red Chair Travels journey began in winter of 2012 when an innkeeper on Cape Cod took a picture of her red porch chair perched on the ice behind her house. After posting the picture of The Red Chair on facebook the magic of the internet created a celebrity and started a viral & physical journey still happening to this day. Now a travel phenomenon, The Red Chair needed a bit of organization and in stepped to organize it's journey.

The Red Chair, or affectionately known as "Red" has developed it's own personality and has traveled from B&B to B&B by innkeepers who have documented his travels by taking photos, blogging and sharing them on social media. After traveling all over Cape Cod & New England, Red then made his way down the east coast and has now traveled to 23 states and now has made it's way to the west coast. In Oregon, Red is being hosted only by members of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild. Members of OBBG are all inspected and approved B&Bs which have reached a high standard of excellence.

We are so honored at Sandlake Country Inn to be a member of the Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild and to host Red to show him the beauty of our beautiful slice of heaven on the Oregon Coast. Follow us on our blog to see the adventures of Red and imagine yourself experiencing our section of the Oregon coast as the Red Chair Travels on it's journey in Oregon.

We, Diane & Ron Emineth are the innkeepers at Sandlake Country Inn. We anxiously waited for Red and were excited to take him all around our Three Capes Scenic Route and the fertile farm lands and dairy farms of Tillamook County. Red's first stop was our beautiful Haystack Rock in Pacific City. Just 8 minutes south of Sandlake Country Inn, Pacific City is Haystack Rock and Cape Kiwanda.

Red took a little hike up Cape Kiwanda to experience amazing views and beautiful rocks and sea caves.

It was a long day and Red enjoyed experiencing sunset atop Cape Kiwanda.
