Arthur Frommer's 10 Favorite Travel Destinations

#7 Yachats, the Oregon Coast: A tiny seaside town, and yet with several gourmet restaurants (featuring Dungeness crab at some), a number of . . . lodgings, and a good beach—in sum, the ideal spot for a stop in the course of a motoring trip along the breathtaking (and largely undeveloped) Oregon Coast.

Diane and Jim aim to provide a first-class experience in the comfort and privacy of a bed and breakfast setting. The location they chose offers numerous opportunities for entertainment and dining on a relatively unspoiled part of the coast.

Scrumptious breakfasts and first-class accommodations are only the tip of your experience at Ocean Creek Bed and Breakfast. Jim is a creative cook who specializes in comfort breakfasts. Coffee is available by 7 a.m. in the common room. The cozy sitting room on the second floor is a wonderful place to sit and read or work on your computer. We promise to do all we can to make your stay memorable.
