Overview

About the property

Enjoy our Retreat With Amenities To Spare! 23 Rooms Sleeps 56 (double occupancy)

Welcome to the heart of the Oregon Coast! The Historic Anchor Retreat is nestled in Lincoln City's historic Taft district, ideally located to take advantage of restaurants, galleries, and antique shops. Steeped in romance, history, and 1940's nostalgia, our retreat has been renovated with utmost care to evoke the Oregon Coast experience of a bygone era.

The Anchor Retreat is square in the middle of everything there is to do. It is just a short stroll to the bay and the beaches of the Pacific Ocean, or just a short drive South to the Oregon Coast Aquarium, Old Town Newport, Nye Beach, and the Mark Hatfield Marine Science Center. Want to try your luck, or enjoy big name entertainment? Head north for only a few minutes and explore Chinook Winds Casino!

Built in 1946, The Anchor is not for everyone. We offer more than just a room for the weekend, we offer a unique experience as well. The Anchor has character galore, from our petite bathrooms (people were smaller back in 1946) to the momentarily spotty Wi-Fi. Sometimes the old growth timbers squeak and groan as the wind blows, and it makes you feel like you are out to sea. If you are just a bit flexible, you will have a great time!

The Historic Anchor Inn is in a category of its own. The Oregonian stated that, “It has to be seen to be believed”. Through the years it has been a hotel, motor court, and inn, but truly we are simply an eclectic combination of a lot of things. The number one question we are asked is, “Do all of our rooms have private bathrooms?” The answer is, “Yes!” In fact, most of our rooms come with a kitchenette and a separate living room, and all of our rooms have flat screen TVs with DVD players. There is no lack of DVD's – we have over a thousand choices in our DVD library! There are no common sleeping areas, no fold out couches. Everyone has their own space. Our guests can be social when they please, and enjoy the privacy of their own room when they desire.

The Historic Anchor Retreat is sixteen thousand square feet, plus almost two acres of private outdoor space !

Our retreat has twenty-three rooms. Three of the rooms have two queen sized beds, and one room has two full sized beds and one queen sized bed.

We offer our guests a living option other than staying in a crowded house, complete with amenities, some of which are listed below:

A dining room and bar that seats fifty-five plus. If you please, stock your own bar, be your own bartender and prepare your own food.

A social room filled with overstuffed couches and chairs, where you can have a private meeting, relax and read, or watch a movie on our 55-inch TV.

A game room stocked with over many board games and endless sets of playing cards. Play cards and warm up for a night at the casino, or use it as a break out room.

Free parking on premise. We have parking for about thirty-three cars.

A large brick courtyard. Rather than looking out your windows at parked cars, we have a large brick courtyard that serves as a pedestrian friendly place to walk, talk, and visit.

A sun deck with tables and chairs for morning coffee or afternoon lunch. If you happen to be here when it is hot and sunny, you can sunbathe in privacy.

A small greenhouse. Read a book in a comfy chair as the sun streams in the glass windows, or rain pitter-patters down the panes.

A pool room (the kind you shoot). You can shoot pool like a professional on our 1930's old tavern slate pool table.

An acre private park with a camp fire area. This is a great area to enjoy a private walk or sit around the campfire and roast hot dogs.

A commercial kitchen with a walk-in refrigerator. It is easy to prepare food for everyone when you have a large cooler, and a commercial stove. If you choose not to cook, we are able to cater to your breakfast, lunch, and dinner needs at reasonable rates. We also can provide live entertainment for your occasion upon request.

A small community kitchen located upstairs for staging lunches or evening hors d'oeuvres. Check out our photo gallery to see if The Anchor is for you!

Why Kip & Kandi Ward chose Coastal Oregon

Our property has the best location in town. It is in a quiet part of town, yet close to everything a guest could possibly want!

Why this property, you ask? We have sixteen-thousand square feet that affords you your privacy when you need it, and room to socialize when you want to.

What makes this lodge unique

Built in the forty's, there is simply nothing like it anywhere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stay at the Anchor every time I get a chance to travel to the Oregon Coast. Not only is the staff friendly and caring, breakfast is hearty and always good (especially Kip's Pancakes!). The antiques make for a fun atmosphere - there's always something new (old) to marvel at. The Anchor is within walking distance of the beach and the staff is always willing to point out local events and share stories. A great place to relax and let the stress of the outside world fade away. I was there in March and will be back in October - can't wait!

Company Retreat was a total blast!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. The Historic Anchor Inn is nothing short of amazing. Kip and Kandi were the absolute best hosts for our group of 53. Everything was set up and ready to go when we arrived. The rooms were perfect for accommodating our large group and still providing some private space. Kip and Kandi cooked a few meals for our group that were delicious and managed to navigate the extensive dietary restrictions a few folks have. The decor is funky and engaging and honestly what we talked about most of the time we were there. You notice something new every time you enter a room. We are already making plans to come back next fall!
