Sunset Oceanfront Lodging sprawls along three blocks of beachfront property, commanding a panoramic view of a flat sandy beach with tide pools, monumental sea stacks and spectacular sunsets from its perch on the edge of a bluff. Sunset Oceanfront Lodging has been run by generations of the same family since 1937. A devastating forest fire swept through Bandon in 1936, destroying homes, businesses and landmarks. Among the hearty souls who lost their homes and livelihoods but not their love for the community and picturesque setting were Herbert and Clara Brown. What began as homes for their two families grew over the years into a 71-unit motel with four motel buildings and an assortment of beach cottages capable of accomodating up to 230 people. Most of the rooms in the two original buildings are small and rustic but cozy and warm, recalling the preferred accomodations of a bygone era. The three-story Vern Brown Addition was designed to cling to the cliff's edge and provide magnificent ocean views from all 21 of its rooms, each of which has a private deck. Amenities include free WiFi, cable TV, an indoor heated pool and spa, a conference room and coin-op laundry. With rates for WWW.OREGONTRAVELCOUNCIL.COM every budget, Sunset Lodging is perfect for families, individuals or groups. They offer yearly winter specials (late October to early May).
