Newport, Oregon

The Hallmark Resort rests on the cliffs overlooking the Oregon Coast. Every room has a view of the ocean and we’ll eat our meals overlooking the beach. All meals are catered by Georgie’s Beachside Grill, our favorite restaurant in Newport.

“In one day you can photograph a lighthouse, an old-growth forest, a busy working harbor and puffins, take a walk on a pretty beach and then capture sunset through the struts of a tall bridge or reflected in a tide pool.”
– Rod Barbee and David Middleton, The Photographer’s Guide to the Oregon Coast
