Our venture as lodging business owners started in June of 2001. We left a corporate job in Hillsboro, OR and moved our young family of three small children to the coast to follow our dreams. We saw a perfect opportunity and purchased the Blue Gull Inn in Cannon Beach.i
In 2003, we acquired the Inn at Haystack Rock. Managing multiple properties, we decided to create a company to reflect our business and called it Haystack Lodgings. Over the years Haystack Lodgings has grown to now manage four small motels and a variety of vacation rental homes in Cannon Beach. Other Inns we manage in Cannon Beach are the Sand Castle Inn and the Sunset Inn.
In March of 2011, we took another leap of faith and purchased our first oceanfront motel in Seaside called the Inn at the Prom. We completely renovated the motel down to the sheet-rock and can proudly say that the Inn at the Prom is now worthy of its location.
In March of 2014, we had the privilege to acquire a historic treasure, The Gilbert Inn. The Inn is directly across the street from the Inn at the Prom in Seaside. This 1892 Victorian features the old warm charm and timeless craftsmanship that will inspire all who enters through its doors.
We have grown as a business over the years and along the way have made many life-long friends. We promise to continually evolve our business in order to best serve our guests. However, our mission will never change, which is to provide each one of our guests with a unique experience and a place to relax, retreat and rejuvenate their mind, body and soul.
We look forward to sharing the place we love with you,
The Simmons family
