With a general store, restaurants, ocean cottages and a beautiful sea stack rock in the distance, time moves a little slower in Neskowin.
Neskowin Trading Company
From gourmet cheese, delicious wines, pastas, chocolates, ice cream to a pride in fresh and local imports—the Neskowin Trading Company has all of the ingredients you need for a relaxing evening by the ocean.
Neskowin Beach Golf Course
A generational golfer’s paradise since the 1930s, a nine-hole, 35 par course features a charming clubhouse to grab a coffee after a day on the green. Enjoy the view from the seventh tee of the Pacific with this Jewel of the Oregon Coast.
South of Proposal Rock lies a 2,000-year-old drowned forest, or “ghost” forest, that can be spotted when the tide is right. It’s speculated that these trees wound up in the ocean as a result of a sudden subduction caused by an earthquake. The ghost forest became visible after a fierce winter storm and is best spotted at low winter tides.
Located in Neskowin, Proposal Rock has a long history of romance, with many a visitor going down on one knee. The sea stack rises just off the beach where Neskowin Creek meets the Pacific Ocean. Proposal Rock is crowned with a scrubby Sitka spruce woodland, and bald eagles are often seen perched in the trees.
