More and more, businesses are learning that co-workers who bond together will better work together. That’s why corporate retreats have become so popular. It’s the perfect way for a team to build trust, create fun, and unwind! If you’re planning a corporate retreat to the Oregon Coast, we can help! Here are a couple of our favorite Oregon Coast retreat ideas.

Our Favorite Oregon Coast Retreat Ideas

Explore the Gorgeous Coastline

The goal of any good business retreat is to get your staff out of the office and in a new setting. There’s no better place to do that than the Oregon Coast! We’ve got plenty of beautiful spots to hike or kayak the day away.

One of our favorite areas to spend the day is Ecola State Park, which is located between Seaside and Cannon Beach. Explore the trails, which offer views of secluded coves, lush forests, and the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse. In the winter and spring, keep an eye out for the migrating gray whales!

Another great park to visit during your trip is Oswald West State Park. It’s near Arch Cape and is one of the most beautiful parks in the region. There are plenty of things to do in the park, from walking along Short Sand Beach to hiking Neahkahnie Mountain.

If you’d prefer to take a guided tour, Lor’s Tours is the solution for you! She offers a zip line tour, where guests can soar over a beautiful lake. Lor also has a guided hiking tour, which leads guests along the Fort to Sea Trail. This scenic walk is three miles long and gives visitors the chance to see some local wildlife and snap some beautiful photos. (If you need tips on taking pictures, check out our blog on the best photography spots along the Oregon Coast!) When you book with Lor’s Tours, you won’t need to worry about transportation. Lor and her 14-person van will take you to your destination!

Enjoy a Brewery Tour

A brewery tour along the North Coast Craft Beer Trail is a fantastic addition to any corporate retreat! It’s a great way to explore the gorgeous coastline while tasting some of the excellent local brews. If you need some assistance planning your tour, we can help! We are happy to arrange transportation through our concierge service so that you and your coworkers can enjoy visiting these Oregon Coast breweries safely. Simply contact us after booking your home, and we’ll do the rest!

Go Whale Watching

Whale watching may not seem like your typical corporate retreat idea, but then again, you’re not planning a common, boring getaway! Seeing these massive and majestic animals gives a new perspective to anyone who goes whale watching on the Oregon Coast. If you’re visiting during the spring, you’ll have no trouble finding reputable charters to take you out on the water.

Stretch it out with Cannon Beach Yoga Arts

Yoga is a fantastic exercise for anyone looking to center themselves and create a new sense of focus. No matter the experience level of your group, you’ll find the perfect class at Cannon Beach Yoga Arts. We suggest the Yoga Basics course, which covers the foundational postures, basic techniques, and the principle behind the movements. You’ll be able to take your newly discovered knowledge back to the office and continue your practice with your co-workers!

Enjoy a Catered Dinner

Often, finding a restaurant to accommodate more than 10 people at once can be a struggle. Luckily, we can arrange for a private caterer to prepare an in-house meal for your retreat! You’ll enjoy a world-class meal without even having to leave the comfort of your rental property. It’s just one of the many amazing things we offer through our guest services!
