Welcome to Shaw's Oceanfront Bed and Breakfast in Arch Cape, Oregon


Winter storms are here and the ocean is incredible. We have seen some whale spouts starting. Come to the only real ocean front B&B. Enjoy the tide pools at the cape or maybe find a Japanese glass float like our guests did last winter, a 16 inch one. Just four miles south of Cannon Beach, halfway between Astoria and Tillamook. Shaw's is a beach front property - step off the deck, stroll through the seaside garden, and you're on the beach! Recline on the deck and enjoy the sunshine, or sit back and soak up the view while the sound of the surf relaxes you.

 Shaw's has now 35 years as a bed and breakfast. It has been a fantastic journey and we are going to continue for the forseeable future.

The guests' cozy living room is furnished with easy chairs, skylights, a sofa and more. Stretch out on the cushioned window seat and view the surf up close. During winter storms, thrill to waves exploding against Castle Rock, while a fire crackles in the fireplace. You can watch the beautiful ocean and migrating whales even from the dining area.

A garden patio greets you at the entrance to Shaw's Oceanfront Bed and Breakfast, and fresh flowers welcome you inside.

Jim and Barbara Shaw look forward to meeting you!


Besides relaxing at Shaw's Oceanfront Bed and Breakfast and enjoying Arch Cape's lovely beach, guests can have fun combing the beach, flying kites, surfing, fishing and exploring the tide pools.

In colorful Cannon Beach, just 4 miles away, visitors can enjoy local live theatre, browse the art galleries and great shops; or play golf on one of four courses within twenty minutes drive.

History buffs can enjoy Fort Clatsop National Monument, where Lewis and Clark spent the winter. It's less than 1 hour away. Closer yet is their rebuilt salt works in Seaside, just 12 miles north of Shaw's.

A short drive to Astoria provides visitors with many attractions, including the Columbia River Maritime Museum and the Astoria Column.

Guests enjoy nature walks in nearby state parks:

Ecola State Park provides beach access, picnic tables, fishing, hiking, viewpoints, and wildlife viewing. Bring your camera. It is one of the most photographed spots in Oregon.

Oswald West State Park - From the parking lot, a short trail winds through a rain forest of massive spruces and cedars, leading you to cove-sheltered Short Sand beach. You can picnic, fish, surf and view wildlife. For long hikes, get on the park's 13-mile stretch of the Oregon Coast Trail, and hike a few miles back to Shaw's.

Saddle Mountain State Park features rare plants and wild flowers. In fact, more wild flowers bloom here in July than in any place else its size in Oregon! The park has 2 ½ miles of hiking trails. From the summit, you can see Tillamook to the south and Washington State to the north.

Nehalem Bay State Park offers picnic areas, beach activities, bike trails, ocean and bay fishing, a boat ramp and horseback riding trails.
