The Stephanie Inn, situated along the picturesque Oregon coast, has earned yet another distinction to enhance its prestigious reputation.

This 42-room haven in Cannon Beach is the sole establishment from the Pacific Northwest to be recognized in Travel+Leisure's roundup of the "15 Best Beach Resorts in the U.S." The publication praised its well-appointed rooms with views of the iconic Haystack Rock, noting, “The charm of Stephanie Inn partly lies in its sense of community; guests enjoy daily social hours with wine and beer in the library and evening nightcaps by the fireside.” Renowned as a haven for romance—partially due to a policy of not accommodating children under 12—the inn offers a spa where a standout treatment is the 90-minute “Lavender Body Melt” priced at $210. Its acclaimed restaurant delivers a four-course dining experience emphasizing regional flavors for $99.

Currently, room rates begin at $339 per night, escalating to over $669 during the busy summer months.

Additionally, Travel+Leisure’s list, which does not rank the selected resorts, includes other notable locations outside the East Coast like the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, Mauna Lani, Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, and The Lodge at Kukui’ula in Hawaii; Montage Laguna Beach and Alila Marea Beach Resort Encinitas in California; and Edgewood Tahoe Resort in Nevada.
