Welcome to the Beach!

The History of the San Dune Inn
The San Dune Inn was originally the Officers quarters at Fort Rilea in Warrenton. It was moved here just after WWII.  The building has undergone many changes since, and now it stands to serve vacationers and tourists as beautiful housing during their stay here in Manzanita.
While Here in Manzanita
Kids love to spend hours digging, damming, diverting streams, creating lakes and floating things, moving rocks, breaking dams and watching the results, building new channels, creating castles with moats … you get the drift. 
Sometimes this takes parents to show kids how this works, but once they get the idea they want to take over and build. 
Kids are busy with little parent participation! Sometimes for hours! 
Terrific for little ones, but I’ve even seen returning kids now in their teenage years grab adult sized shovels and go to work. With really BIG dams. As a side note, bring boots and rain gear if the weather is inclement. Kids love to dig away on misty days without a care for the rain.
Beautiful Beaches

Nehalem is a picturesque riverside town with a quaint downtown reflecting its century of history. Enjoy views of the Nehalem River, nearby mountains, forests and wildlife, the centerpiece of the Nehalem Bay Area experience.
