One couple, two dogs, fun/unusual Thanksgiving near the Oregon coast?

Partner and I just decided we'd like to spend Thanksgiving at the Oregon coast. We have two midsize dogs. Where should we stay? Airbnb pickins are reasonable but I'm curious about other/interesting options. Some details and bonus wishes under the cut.

Coming from Portland, leaving Wednesday, need to be in Dallas/Monmouth by midday Friday. Have spent a lot of time at the coast either camping or in not-particularly-dog-friendly hotels. I'd love some alternatives, particularly more off-the-beaten-path places I might not hav thought of. We're pretty much open to anything as long as the dogs are welcome. Yurt? Cabin? Some place with a hot tub? Can go as far south as Yachats, as far north as Tillamook. Would also consider something inland and woodsy. I'm down for camping but would like access to a shower. Also down for a romantic ocean view suite if it allows the dogs.

Hot tub?
Particularly/specifically dog-welcoming?
Good restaurant open on Thanksgiving?
Best place to park the old/mobility-challenged dog in the car and take the younger/rarin'-to-go dog on a beach walk?

Best answer: Sheltered Nook!!! Tillamook Bay. “Tiny” houses are very comfy, not so tiny. All spots are dog friendly and there’s a nearby hiking path to the beach. The owners are very nice and attentive. You will also be greeted by the two most docile, friendly poodles ever, chickens, ducks, cat. A family favorite.

Proposal Rock Inn is an older property but kitschy and fun. It felt like staying in your grandparents' condo. The ghost forest beach is gorgeous and lots of people had their dogs.

I'm weirdly obsessed with the Inn at Cape Kiwanda/Pacific City. I know the Pelican Pub does a Tgiving dinner I've always wanted to get to, can't vouch for its quality though. But drinking a beer on the beach on Thanksgiving is pretty great!

Most of the coastal State Parks have yurts. They're a lot of fun, especially if the weather gets a little blustery.
