We’re lucky to live on the Oregon Coast, where forested cliffs and towering sand dunes meet the Pacific Ocean. Take a bike ride along the coastline, fish in our Nestucca River or navigate along our three capes. Nestled in Pacific City, alongside Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area, we’re far enough from the beaten path to feel like a true getaway—but still only two hours from Portland International Airport. Arrive at Headlands and you’ll soon find we are so much more than a hotel, yet not a traditional resort. We blend the finest accommodations with a casual approach to lodging to deliver what we proudly call hospitality, Oregon-style.
Get ready to relax and be yourself. Every element of Headlands is designed with your comfort and choices in mind. Bring your family, your dog, your bike and your surfboard. (Don't worry about the sand. We'll take care of it.)
Make yourself at home in one of our 33 carefully appointed guestrooms or in one of our luxurious cottages, each with a balcony and ocean view. Wander into Haystack Hall, where something is always happening. Arrange for a beach bonfire, take a cooking class or curl up by the fireplace. Private meeting rooms are available for your small group, wedding or corporate event. Our accommodations are ready to exceed both your personal and business needs.
Stop in at the bar or join us at the restaurant, where we create innovative Northwest cuisine in an open kitchen. No fussiness here. Just casual elegance to suit our rugged Oregon Coast, with menus sourced from the sea, local farmers and Mary's Herb Garden. We invite you to come enjoy the creative offerings of Chef Andrew Garrison and his team—all served up against the stunning background of Haystack Rock and Cape Kiwanda.
Enjoy our massage and treatment rooms, steam rooms, shower and changing spaces, and a workout area with free weights, treadmills and elliptical machines. Choose from indoor and outdoor exercise options, from Pilates to beach yoga, bike rides to surf lessons. Relax in our outdoor hot tub while you take in the exquisite ocean view. It’s our version of a spa and resort done in a whole new Oregon way.
Pacific City is the only wintering spot in the world of the Semidi Island Aleutian Cackling Geese. Each year, the geese fly south more than 2,000 miles from their small Alaskan nesting islands to Oregon’s North Coast. Every evening during their annual Pacific City stay, they leave the grassy pastures in the Nestucca Valley and soar across a mile of ocean to roost on Haystack Rock—the same towering monolith that Headlands guests can see from their rooms and cottages. Our logo is reminiscent of these special birds because they capture our Headlands spirit: rugged, beautiful, and ready for adventure. We feel the same way about our geese as we do about our guests—eagerly awaiting their arrival, cherishing their stay with us, and looking forward to their eventual return.
