Highway 101 runs 363 miles through Oregon, from Astoria on the south bank of the Columbia River to the California border. About midway is Depoe Bay. We visited the area several years ago when we discovered Whale Cove Inn, a wonderful hideaway with a stellar restaurant helmed by award-winning chef Justin Wills, which overlooks a cove rimmed by weathered cliffs and a slim crescent of driftwood-strewn sand. On this occasion, having read numerous flattering reviews in major national publications, we decided to check out the Salishan Coastal Lodge, an adventure, wellness and golf retreat in Gleneden Beach, 6 miles north of Depoe Bay.
