The Amanda Statue (above left) is located about halfway into the Amanda Trail, which crosses the base of our driveway and reaches the site of the Amanda statue. It honors a blind Native American woman forced to walk barefoot on the rocky beach from her home to the Coast sub-reservation located where the Adobe Resort is now. The trail continues on to Cape Perpetua. The giant spruce (above right) is east of the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center.
YACHATS' CHARMING DOWNTOWN offers gift shops, art galleries, coffee shops, an ice cream shop, old-fashioned mercantile, as well as an excellent choice of restaurants including Ona, a top-notch American eclectic restaurant; Drift Inn, excellent food, wide variety including vegetarian and gluten-free choices, and live music every night; Luna Sea, a casual fish market and restaurant owned by the captain of his own vessel who brings in his fresh catch; Yachats Farm Store, which features a micro-brewery and imaginative organic and free-range food choices.
The Yachats area is known for its numerous scenic hiking trails. One of them, the Amanda Trail, passes the base of our driveway and goes south to a grotto that honors a Native American woman, Amanda. It continues to Cape Perpetua. A trail going north from our driveway takes walkers into town and connects to the 804 trail on the ocean side and on to the Oregon Coast Trail. Trails vary in difficulty; we have walking sticks for those who like a little more stability.
