Family-owned since 1979, Oregon’s Whaler Hotel overlooks one of the most scenic beaches on the Pacific Ocean. Each of the Whaler’s quiet and spacious rooms comes with a great ocean view and easy access to spectacular Nye Beach.

For nearly 30 years, there have been plans to expand the Whaler to the north to take full advantage of the amazing ocean views. In 2023, we officially kicked off an $11 million design + build addition to the original Whaler Hotel’s 73 rooms and three ocean-front rental houses. Our team designed and is now building 26 new units, a new amenity spa, updates to the existing pool, a new sauna, hot tub, gym, and outdoor fire pits.

With its massive post-tensioned concrete slab foundation, The Whaler Expansion build is using O’Brien’s 4k image capture and photogrammetry to save oceans of time and money.  A few hours of drone scanning produced detailed as-built records that diminish time-consuming review tasks and reduce the potential of expensive rework by providing simple and easy to read digital layouts to designers and builders.

Abbot Architecture

Home of the Haystack rock, Cannon Beach is a must see Oregon Coast destination. The owners of Stephanie Inn, Jan and Steve Martin envisioned a beach front hotel that would offer both a place that was luxurious but also laid back.

The Inn was named after the owners’ daughter and has quickly become one of the most iconic hotels in Cannon Beach.

Our long standing relationship with Stephanie Inn has been developed over the years through many different projects, and we continue to work together to create a luxury beach experience.

Gorgeous rooms with vaulted ceilings, jetted tubs, and cedar wood elements throughout the hotel offer a cozy yet elevated feel.
