Cannon Beach: Annual Cottage & Garden Tour
10th Annual Cottage & Garden Tour: Revisits the nostalgia of by-gone days
CANNON BEACH, Ore. – Visitors to picturesque Cannon Beach, Ore., will get an inside peek at true coastal living during the 10th Annual Cannon Beach Tour of Homes and Gardens on Saturday and Sunday the 14th and 15th of September.
The Cannon Beach History Center and Museum’s annual tour will feature 12 beach dream homes, vintage cottages, iconic lodging facilities, and gardens. In celebration of the 10th Annual Tour attendees will have the opportunity to revisit nostalgic homes and gardens from past years.
The tour, which benefits the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum, is a “tour through time,” says Dick Frank, a Seaside resident and former Cottage Tour lecturer. “We think of those times as simpler, and I hope people have a greater appreciation that life is difficult any time, but the human spirit and pleasure in life and family and nature allowed people to get here.”
A pre-tour luncheon and lecture, beginning at noon, will be hosted at the Tolovana Inn, which is the site of the old Warren Hotel. The Warren brothers constructed The Warren Hotel in 1911. One of their first guests was Oregon’s 14th governor, Oswald West. Attendees will enjoy learning history of Cannon Beach and Tolovana.
In celebration of the tour’s 10th year the lecture will be given by Cannon Beach Cottages author Jill Grady. Grady, among others were instrumental in starting the tour ten years ago.
The events on Saturday the 14th will continue with a tour of home and gardens from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Following the tour, attendees are invited to mingle with homeowners and other tour-goers at the Cannon Beach History Center for a wine reception at 6:00 p.m., in which there will be live music, door prizes, and a hanging quilt made by the talented Marilyn Dwyer.
On Sunday at 11 a.m., a brunch catered by Culinary Capers of Seaside will be hosted at the Tolovana Inn and will feature a garden presentation by Cannon Beach landscape architect and gardener Beth Holland. Seating for the luncheon and brunch is limited and tickets must be purchased no later than September 9th. Tickets for the each event are available to purchase separately. Luncheon and lecture tickets are $20, Home and Garden Tour tickets are $30 (to include the Saturday post-tour reception,) and Brunch tickets are $10. Tickets are available now by phone or through our online gift shop. Weekend event packages are available, with a discount for Museum members.
