There's more to the Gleneden Beach area than you think. Much like Lincoln City, there are surprises around every corner.
Just two miles south of Lincoln City, Gleneden Beach has some interesting stops just off Highway 101.
Up S Immonen Rd, two treasures await. The first is the oldest glassblowing studio in Oregon, Alder House Glassblowing. Witness real deal glassblowing here. They will explain the process in detail, and you'll have the opportunity to ask artists all the questions you have about the craft, and science, of glassblowing. Alder House has beautiful finished pieces for sale, or work with an artist to customize something special.
The second treasure is Mossy Creek Pottery. This hidden gem is home to the work of 40 Northwest artists. Inside the century-old farmhouse, you'll find a wide assortment of functional and decorative pottery in an array of glazes, representing the many and varied styles and techniques of our local and regional potters.
Tucked away in the Salishan Marketplace you'll find the Salishan Gallery, a gallery committed to showcasing Oregon's finest artists. A yoga studio offering classes for all levels throughout the day. Grab a craft beverage at Beachcrest Brewing, or an espresso and gourmet foods at Coffee & Cravings.
Pamper yourself at the spa, which offers a full line of salon services and spa treatments, including customizable facials and specialized hand and foot treatments that will renew your body and spirit. Hit the links at the 18-hole course. Surrounded by the towering fir and spruce of the Oregon coastal forest and the tranquil waters of Siletz Bay, the top-caliber Salishan golf course is as magnificent as it is challenging.
If it's adventure you're after, give the Aerial Park a go. Soar high above the trees while tackling a series of obstacles – some easy, others challenging – along the course’s 15 platforms and 21 elements.
Wrap up your day by treating yourself to a meal at Side Door Café. Enjoy their rustic elegance and northwest fusion cuisine.
