Friday Favorites | Sylvia Beach Hotel and Tables of Content Restaurant

If you are a book lover and want to travel to the Oregon coast to explore the coastline or experience one of our coastal storms, do I have a place for you!

Sylvia Beach Hotel

Sylvia Beach Hotel, Nye Beach, Oregon

Sylvia Beach Hotel and its Tables of Content Restaurant in Nye Beach, Oregon, is the perfect place for book lovers, whether they love to read books or perhaps love to write them. Sylvia Beach provides the perfect place for either. Although some have been heard to say its one of the most romantic of places to celebrate special occasions.

Sylvia Beach is a beachside hotel sitting on a 45 foot bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean with a total of 20 plus rooms. Rooms are categorized and named with genre and authors in mind. Three genre categorize the rooms: Classics, Best Sellers and Novels. Some authors included are Hemingway, Melville, Woolf, Rowling, Christie, Twain, Tolkien, Stein and more.

Recent additions are rooms named for Jules Verne, Amy Tan, and Ken Kesey’s Cuckoo’s Nest. Herman Melville and the Library Reading Area have also been updated.

You won’t find TV, phones, Wi-Fi or radio in the rooms, but you may hear the howling wind if a glorious storm comes up and entertains you with its ability to crash the waves against the rocks below.

Laptops may be used in the Library Reading Area, and books, guest journals and photos are found in every room if you need something more to read than what you brought along. Also, puzzles and board games are available as well as shelves of books in the library loft. Not to mention a loveable cat who strolls through from time to time, or opts to sit in someone’s lap.

And I should give proper time to the Tables of Content Restaurant. Here you’ll find an exquisite view of the ocean and family style dinners prepared fresh each day. You should plan on eating at least one evening meal here.

After 26 years in the business, Sylvia Beach continues to amaze its guests with updates, new rooms, and fantastic cuisine. If you are in the area, it’s not to be missed!

I encourage you to follow one of the links provided to take advantage of reading the Sylvia Beach Hotel web site for yourself. It is well done, highly informative, and inviting.

I think you can see from this overview why Sylvia Beach Hotel and Tables of Content Restaurant are high on the list of favorite places for Oregonians but also anyone who loves books, reading them, the history behind them, and spending time near the Pacific Ocean.

    A long weekend on the ocean unplugged? Sounds like a slice of heaven to me. Love the idea of the genre rooms and it just wouldn’t be complete without the cat running around.

      Teri, as close as I live to the ocean and Nye Beach, I haven’t been in some time. It’s time for a weekend away but life is busy at home, and it will have to wait! And yes, the cat at Sylvia Beach completes the scene!
