Oregon has a coastline that stretches more than 360 miles and is a popular destination for honeymooners as well as families. The Oregon coast has several family-friendly resort towns, including Cannon Beach, Seaside, Newport and Lincoln City. Resorts offering accommodations and amenities geared toward families are available in those towns.
Hallmark Resort-Cannon Beach
This family-friendly oceanfront accommodation is near two of the Oregon coast’s popular attractions, Haystack Rock and the Tillamook Lighthouse. Families can enjoy the one- and two-bedroom suites, each with a good-sized living area. If you are seeking additional space for a larger family party, the resort can accommodate up to nine people in a beachfront house. Each suite or beach house comes with an oceanfront balcony, jet tub, fireplace, full kitchen and big screen TV. Other on-site amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi access, two pools, a dry sauna, exercise room and laundry facilities. The Hallmark resorts also allow families to bring their pets.
A little farther south on the Oregon coast is the city of Depoe Bay, home of the Surfrider Resort, which offers family accommodations in addition to a full restaurant and lounge. The Surfrider features rooms, suites and beach houses to fit all family sizes, large or small. The beachfront resort offers views of the ocean and surrounding landscape.

The Hallmark Resort in Newport overlooks the ocean and offers views of the Yaquina Bay and Lighthouse. Newport is one of the Oregon coast’s premiere ports, with fishing boats always coming and going. The city also offers whale watching tours from the main dock. The Hallmark Resort-Newport can assist you with booking a local tour, or you can research the information on your own via the free Wi-Fi Internet access available. Other nearby attractions include Ripley’s Believe It or Not, the Wax Works Museum, the Undersea Gardens submarine tour and more. All of these attractions are accessible via Mariner Square in the heart of Newport, Oregon.
Pacific Reef Resort
This Gold Beach, Oregon, resort has 39 rooms on two floors and is located where the Rogue River and Pacific Ocean meet. The resort offers not only luxury rooms but also one-bedroom condos and two-bedroom apartments, depending on your family size. No matter which accommodation you choose, you will be located on the Pacific Reef Resort’s private beach. This family-friendly resort also allows pets but does not allow smoking. Plenty of shopping and dining is available within walking distance, and if you wish to venture just a little farther south on a day trip, the California border is a 35 miles away.
