Here’s a idea for you: A staycation at an Oregon Bed and Breakfast

Sensational Staycation Ideas for a break from the household grind and the fretful health warnings surrounding us. When you’re on a real vacation, you don’t cook, clean, do chores or fret. Do as much as you want. As little as you want

It’s obvious the innkeepers of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild work in the travel industry and cleanliness has always been a high priority for our guests, our innkeepers and our employees. Our inns are inspected regularly by the State Health Departments and we inspect ourselves to make sure we’re following the guidelines presented by them. Food handler cards are a must and we’ve always taken pride in our cleanliness. Most all of us have instituted some new protocols in our inns, going above the practices we have in place.

So Keep Calm and Stay with Us!  And here, I’ll put in a little jingle about Book Direct. As small business owners we are already starting to feel the ripple effect of this health scare. Our innkeepers truly appreciate your direct bookings. When you commit to booking direct, you will enjoy many perks and amenities that you would not have access to when booking through a travel agency. Not to mention, you will almost always pay less and stay in some very sanitized inns.

We can’t guarantee you’ll not catch a travel bug but we’re doing everything in our power to make sure you don’t catch anything from us. Thank you for your trust in the inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild. We will continue to provide the relaxing, comfortable, and immaculately clean solitude our guests expect and appreciate.

Food handler cards are a must and we’ve always taken pride in our cleanliness. Most all of us have instituted some new protocols in our inns, going above the practices we have in place:

One inn has replaced community cookie jars with individual jars in each guest room. Another added a little sanitation center at the front door with wipes and some bottled water. One tried to buy some jars of hand sanitizers but, of course, they were sold out so she made her own. Placed them in the rooms and guests are loving them. Used these wipes to wipe down every surface, keys, remotes, etc., and the rooms smell wonderful! Individually plated meals instead of family style. Some have brought in extra cleaning detail workers and are disinfecting surfaces continually.

Three Capes Scenic Drive

Spring Whale Watching on the Oregon Coast offers front row seats for folks to witness the yearly migration of the grey whale.

Whale Watching can be observed as gray whales cruise along the Oregon coast en route to Alaska from Mexico, spouting geyser-like blasts of spray as they go. Thanks to towering coastal bluffs and a string of beaches set aside as state parks, Oregon offers visitors front-row seats for whale watching. People come from all over the United States to learn about the gray whales that migrate past our coast each year. The Whale Watching Spoken Here program places volunteers at great whale watching sites during Watch Weeks so they can teach others while watching the whales too. If you love whales you, too, can be a volunteer!

Oregon Parks and Recreation Department park rangers are ready at the Whale Watching Center in Depoe Bay to answer your questions and help you find whales to watch. Located on U.S. 101 along the seawall in scenic Depoe Bay, the center is a perfect spot for visitors to locate and watch whales as they blow, dive, spy hop and breach.

The best time to see whales in the spring is during Whale Watch Week, which starts on March 21st this year and goes through March 29th, although this is not the only time you can see the whales. About 20,000 gray whales will pass by and all the same locations are great viewing spots.

Trained volunteers at 24 “Whale Watching Spoken Here” sites help visitors spot gray whales during the winter and spring annual migrations. The volunteers are on duty 10 a.m.-1 p.m. to help visitors see the marine animals and offer information about their migration.

Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild member inns on the Oregon Coast can be home base for your trip to the Oregon Coast to witness this yearly migration. From Astoria to Port Orford there are inspected and approved bed and breakfast inns of the Oregon B&B Guild to provide the ultimate in Oregon Coast Lodging.
