Sugar and Spice … and Everything Nice!

6 Dec 2023

Treat yourself to some local goodies while staying in two of our favorite little coastal communities – Arch Cape & Bella Beach.  

Arch Cape 

Arch Cape is a serene and peaceful coastal community located between Cannon Bach and Manzanita. Enjoy stunning scenery and serenity as you stroll Hug Point, explore the trails at Oswald West State Park, and marvel at breathtaking views of Castle Rock. 

After an adventure-filled morning, enjoy a treat at The Whale’s Tail Bakery in nearby Manzanita. Warm up with a hot chocolate and indulge in a decadent pastry like the Vanilla Sailor’s Knot – Flakey croissant dough draped in Madagascar vanilla and shaped like a sailor’s knot. 

We also love a stop at Cannon Beach Bakery where there is something sweet for everyone from doughnuts to cookies to sticky buns. Keep an eye out for seasonal treats! 

Bella Beach 

Bella Beach is a quiet and protected neighborhood located between Lincoln City and Depoe Bay. The charming neighborhood evokes the feeling of a classic beach community with green spaces, walking paths that lead to the beach, and sidewalks. Dog-friendly parks, a playground for children, and on-site amenities make it a great getaway for the whole family.  

After a morning stroll on the beach, stop by Café C’est La Vie for a cup of coffee and a fresh pan au chocolate. The kiddos will love their hot chocolate with fresh whipped cream.  

We also love satisfying our sweet tooth at Depoe Baykery in Gleneden Beach. This bakery is a favorite amongst locals and visitors for their tasty eclairs, freshly baked doughnuts, cinnamon rolls, pies, and more! Spending the holidays with us, but don’t feel like baking? Pick up a made to order cake or pie to serve on Christmas day.  

Any bakers in the group? Most of our vacation rentals have fully equipped kitchens, so grab some ingredients at the store and enjoy some freshly baked treats as you gather around a cozy fire. Looking for some inspiration? The whole family will love these Brown Butter Christmas M&M Cookie Bars.
