The Inn at Harbour Village is located in the historic fishing town of Ilwaco at the base of the Long Beach Peninsula. Named for Elowahka Jim, a local Native American resident and son-in-law of Chinook Chief Concomoly, Ilwaco’s recorded history began in the late 1840’s.
With a full-time population of just over 800, it offers visitors the best of both worlds – small town living away from the crowds and noise of the more touristy spots on the Peninsula, as well as easy access to all the excitement and adventure that the Peninsula has to offer.
A short stroll to the port and you can enjoy art galleries, a charming bookstore, shops and restaurants offering everything from fish tacos to elegant gourmet fare. Or just sit on a bench and enjoy the activity of the local fisherman going out or coming in for the day with their haul. Charter boats offering whale watching or fishing trips, a thriving Saturday market and the Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum are some of the other attractions in this quaint coastal town.
Elsewhere on the Peninsula, you can enjoy kayaking, hiking or horseback riding or the quieter activities of bird-watching, beachcombing or kite flying. From the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center and lighthouses to the summer-long festivals, the Peninsula offers something for everyone. You will never be bored!
