Our Story

2004 – The Inn at Discovery Coast, WA

In 2004, owners Tiffany and Brady Turner developed and constructed the Inn at Discovery Coast, a 12-room boutique hotel. With the Pacific Ocean on its doorstep and thoughtful amenities, the Inn immediately resonated with travelers. The Inn boasts organic honor bar items, jetted tubs or double headed showers, fireplaces, balconies and is adults-only.

2011 – Adrift Hotel + Spa, WA

In 2011, Tiffany and Brady purchased an under-performing 80-room property (now with 82 rooms), adjacent to the Inn at Discovery Coast, and recreated it as a unique, sustainable hotel named Adrift Hotel + Spa. The hotel includes several unique features such as Pickled Fish Restaurant, 100% pet friendly rooms, complimentary bicycles, a library, game room, fire pit and in-room dining. The lobby is stocked with great local wines, microbrews and organic snacks, and is often used to feature local partners as part of the #Adriftcrush series.

2012 – Pickled Fish Restaurant, WA

When Tiffany and Brady renovated the Adrift Hotel, the restaurant that sat atop the hotel was a 20 year old establishment named The Lightship Restaurant. Tiffany and Brady had their wedding rehearsal dinner at The Lightship Restaurant many years ago. Pickled Fish focuses on serving high quality, local and sustainable foods with an emphasis on local purveyors and reflecting the flora of the surrounding peninsula. The Pickled Fish is particularly known for its craft cocktails, local microbrews and organic and biodynamic wine selection. We make just about everything in-house, with the help of our bakery.

2013 – Live Music Program

Live bands began performing in January 2013, and word quickly spread to regional talents that Pickled Fish was a great venue for the PNW music scene. Initially, Tiffany was the music booker! A fortuitous meeting at a fundraiser featuring Portland’s beloved band, The Decemberists, with Ezra Holbrook, drummer and founding member, led to him booking bands for Pickled Fish in April 2013. Ezra continues to be our official music booker with popular local bands, and soon-to-be discovered musicians.

2015 – Ashore Hotel, OR

Previously the Sundowner Inn, the Ashore Hotel is located just a block from the beach in Seaside. In July of  2015, we opened the 22 room, motel style, property, which features a dry sauna, a saline soaking pool and a fire pit. The Ashore also shares popular amenities with Adrift, such as free bicycles to rent, and great local wines, microbrews and light food options in the Wine and Espresso Bar.

2017 – Adrift Distillers, WA

In December of 2017, after two years of research and development, Adrift Distillers sold its first bottle of cranberry liqueur at the Adrift Holiday Bazaar. Adrift Distillers is a grain-to-glass, small-batch, craft distillery, which uses ingredients from the local landscape, and grain from Washington farms. Since then, Adrift Distillers has gone on to win awards for its Cranberry Liqueur and its Gin from the American Distilling Institute.

2018 – Shelburne Hotel and Pub, WA

In January of  2018, Adrift Hospitality took over the Shelburne Hotel & Pub. The oldest continuously running hotel in Washington State and was built in 1896. Shelburne is special to us. Founders and owners Tiffany and Brady Turner had their wedding reception at the Shelburne. The Pub offers fun comfort food with great classic cocktails, beer, and wine. The garden is a picture-perfect spot for gatherings large and small. Inside, have fun playing shuffle board and billards.

2018 – Social Purpose Corporation  

In 2018, Adrift Hospitality made use of a new Washington law which legally allows a for-profit corporation to place social and environmental concerns above fiduciary considerations, and became a Social Purpose Corporation.

2019 – Certified B Corporation

In May 2019, after two years of planning, we gained B-Corporation certification. We’re proud members of a global community of a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. As such, we’re legally required to consider the impact of our decisions on workers, customers, suppliers, the community, and the environment. 

2019 – The Pool House

In the summer of 2019, we added the pool house featuring a heated saline pool, barrel-sauna, and full-service spa. The pool area opens up to an outdoor courtyard. Fenced in for privacy and to protect from that windy PNW weather, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy some sunshine. The second floor of the pool house is home to the studio rooms of the Inn at Discovery Coast. 

2020 – Boardwalk Cottages

This one’s close to our hearts. Co-founder Brady Turner’s parents owned and operated the Boardwalk Cottages, following their dream of running a small inn by the ocean. As a teenager, Brady would help with whatever needed doing. In 2020, the cottages found their way into the growing Adrift Hospitality portfolio. A dozen self-contained units with unique amenities like spa tubs, kitchens, and fireplaces, Boardwalk Cottages is the perfect spot for independent travelers and families alike. Learn more.

July 2021 – Bowline Hotel

We’re so excited to come to Astoria, Oregon. Bowline Hotel is a luxurious forty-room property located in the middle of town, right on the mighty Columbia River. We’re transforming what used to be a fish processing plant into a unique space to experience the oldest city on the West Coast. Amenities include in-room soaking tubs, barrel saunas, and bicycles. With plenty of common spaces and neighbors like Buoy Beer, you’ll feel like a local instantly.
