Named one of the world’s 100 most beautiful places, Cannon Beach is a dream for the whole family, including pets. The wide stretch of sandy beach on the Oregon Coast is known for the towering Haystack Rock, in addition to the excellent birdwatching, scenic hiking trails, top art galleries and great restaurants in the surrounding area. There’s even a dog show on the beach every October if you really want to show your pooch off. Just be sure to stay in one of these pet-friendly hotels in Cannon Beach where furry friends are always welcome, bookable on Culture Trip.
Pets are truly pampered at this 1940s motor inn with 10 attached cottages. Not only is the property one block from the beach for long walks right on your doorstep, but this dog-friendly hotel in Cannon Beach allows a maximum of two pets of any size to stay for a bargain $15 (£11) fee per stay, not per night. There’s a pet station on site, and every pet is welcomed with a Woof-Woof Amenity Bucket including waste bags, a blanket, treats and toys.
This homey resort near Haystack Rock offers serious pampering by the sea. Guests can enjoy a full spa, two indoor saltwater pools, a sauna, complimentary cruiser bikes, free DVD loans with popcorn and even freshly baked cookies daily. Four-legged friends won’t miss out either. Two pets are allowed for a daily $25 (£18) fee (some of which is donated to local animal shelters), and they receive a goodie bag of treats, a beach towel and a frisbee on arrival. There are also wash-down stations, pet exercise areas and a dedicated water fountain for dogs.
If you and your pet fancy a little more room to spread out, the suites and studios overlooking the beach at Land’s End are a godsend. All have modern kitchenettes and wood-burning fireplaces, and many have jetted tubs or private balconies. Two dogs are welcome per room at a charge of $18 (£13) per pet, per night, and this includes a dog blanket, treats and the use of a handy wash-down station to clean sandy paws.
Surfsand goes all out to make your pets feel at home: think a welcome board with their name on it, a basket of doggie snacks, food bowls and a towel plus an all-important cookie jar in the lobby always stocked with tasty treats, all for $25 (£18) per pet, per night. Owners will also love the nightly bonfire with s’mores, beachfront cabanas, free bike loans, a heated indoor pool, free weekend ice cream and complimentary beer tasting every Friday and Saturday.
There’s no chance that you or your pet will get cabin fever at this oceanfront resort, just steps from the sand for easy beach walks. Dogs can stay for $25 (£18) per pet, per night, and the hotel provides a pet relief area and a generous supply of dog biscuits at the front desk. Spacious studios and suites come with a fireplace, modern kitchen, living room and balcony with sweeping ocean views; there’s also an indoor saltwater pool, spa and sauna.
This stately property, at the south end of Cannon Beach, close to Haystack Rock, wants the whole family to feel at home. For a charge of $20 (£14) per night, pets are treated to all sorts of goodies, plus this Cannon Beach dog-friendly hotel provides a post-beach dog-wash and a list of approved dog-sitters. The rest of the family will love the library of books and movies, daily wine reception, organic in-room coffee and games including bocce ball and chess.
It’s all about taking it easy at this laid-back inn one block from the south end of Cannon Beach. Families are greeted with sand buckets and treats, while there are always freshly baked cookies and coffee on hand in the lobby. Two pets are allowed in the dog-friendly rooms with easy beach access for $20 (£14) per pet, per night, and they’re plied with treats, too, so no one will feel left out.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
