The Adobe Resort opened in the 1950's as an Inn that the Smith family built with their own hands.The 17,000 adobe blocks were constructed at the site from clay that was found there. Pictures of the adobe block process and the continuing history of the Adobe Resort is an ongoing project that guests past and present contribute. After the property changed hands a couple of times, in 1977 the Pfannmullers purchased the 38 unit motel and expanded to the 100+ rooms with onsite amenities to include an oceanside award winning restaurant and lounge plus an indoor workout facility with a heated pool, whirlpool, sauna, childrens' pool and exercise room.
There are many rocky beaches in our area, and all have easy access. Beaches in the sourth of Yachats are rocky with many tide pools, as the coastal mountain headlands jut out into the ocean. A mile north of Yachats, the terrain changes to long stretches of sandy beaches that continue north for six to seven miles. A nice walking trail leads along the coastline from The Adobe to the sandy beach (about a Mile).
Golf Courses are available in Waldport (eight miles north), in Newport (24 miles north) and in Florence (25 miles south). There are several gift shops, art galleries, service stations, a bakery, a post office, a bank and a large grocery store in Yachats.
Area attractions include Sea Lion Caves, Cape Perpetua Visitors Center, whale watching, beachcombing, fishing, crabbing, hiking trails and sightseeing. Charter boat trips and airplane rides are available in Newport. Horseback riding and sand dune rides are nearby in Florence
