    Clawfoot tub!!!! Squee! I would have been in that for sure LOL.

    That looks like a great vacation spot, too.

    I can’t believe how warm you guys are. The northeast has been in this cool blip forever since winter. We have been colder than average. The last couple of mornings have been in the upper 50s!

      Oh yikes! That IS cold! Yes, this week it’s going to be in the 100’s. It’s CRAZY

    Cool here in Chicago too – today it is in the 70s but it’s pretty much been 60’s and rainy for weeks.

    Looks like you had a great time!

      70 is nice, rain not so much. It’s been abnormally hot here. Usually the 90+ degree weather doesn’t start til August here in Oregon.

    What a great hotel! Dogs are allowed in a lot of places here in the Netherlands but I have never been to a hotel that makes a dog feel so welcome! Love it!

    We are looking at +100 next Saturday and that’s hot, too hot. Last time we had temperatures like that I wasn’t even born because it was in 1944! Time to set up the pool for Bella šŸ™‚

    Wonderful overview of the Cannery Pier Hotel and the very terrific Astoria Oregon. A couple of recommendations for your next getaway. Next to the Fort George Brewery is the fabulous Blue Scorcher Bakery for scrumptious breakfasts and lunches. Astoria Coffeehouse and Bistro for yummy breakfasts, lunches and dinners (plus drinks) along with the Bridgwater Bistro with added really beautiful views. The Houses On Manzanita Beach

    Great post. It is good to hear that this place allows dogs and really cares for them. I sometimes find it hard to travel different places because some of these hotels will not allow pets or even if they do, the place would not have any good activities nearby for my dog. And by the way, it’s so warm where you guys live, I never thought it was that warm before. But anyway, thanks for the amazing article.
