You can get a glimpse of coastal living in Cannon Beach, Oregon at the annual Cottage & Garden Tour, held the middle of September each year.
Historic inns, vintage homes, and special gardens will welcome guests to enjoy a weekend of special receptions, presentations, concerts, a garden tea, wine tastings, and even a costume contest.
The annual event is coordinated by the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum which celebrates the town’s heritage as a coastal destination community.
Two of the weekend special events are hosted at the Tolovana Inn.
Cannon Beach has been a destination community since the 1880’s. In fact, in an August 1891 issue of The Daily Astorian newspaper, Cannon Beach was declared a “sportsman’s paradise.” Additionally, it was heralded as an “ideal location for rest and recuperation.” Still true!
Cannon Beach has emerged into a picture-perfect destination of unmatched charm. And during this special weekend, you can experience it in an extraordinary way.
