Green Initiatives

Conservation was at the forefront of planning for the Inn at Nye Beach. To ensure the most sustainable practices went into its construction, salvaged materials from the historic Viking’s Cottages were recycled and reused throughout the development of the Inn at Nye Beach. Many materials such as wooden members were salvaged for reuse and if unusable due to mold or deterioration, old wood was disposed of by chipping and used for landscaping. Renewable and/or recycled materials were also used in man of the in-room furniture pieces, trim work, and internal construction.
