We spent three days in this wonderful cabin on Netarts Bay, in the middle of the Three Capes area. We were unprepared for the beauty of the coast or the delights of the cabin! The word "cabin" conveys rusticity and perhaps roughing it a bit. But instead we found charming simplicity of design, supremely comfortable accommodations (3 bedrooms, 2 large bathrooms with either a tub or a terrific shower, fully equipped kitchen, decks, grill, Jotul wood stove fr chily nights, and best of all a third story belvedere with views on all sides and an adjoining deck overlooking the bay and the coast, north and south.). We loved extra amenities such as a good guitar, plenty of books and guides to the area, herbs and huckleberries artfully planted around the cabin. Access to the beach was just a short, scenic walk away. The sandy beach itself is incredible, and you can walk for miles. Roseanna's Cafe in Oceanside was a favorite eating spot, just two miles away. We loved the quiet seclusion of Pearl Street. Watching the crabbers in ther boats, and the sea lions on the spit across the bay, was lovely...time stood still. We hiked at Cape Lookout State Park, through rain forests ad above the coast: unforgettable views. Drove down to Pacific City and had lunch at Pelican Brewery, which was a shocking contrast to the quiet of Netarts-- crowded and touristy. Our group of five adults was delighted with the entire experience of staying in this place. We thank the owners of the cabin for making it available for others to use. We hope to return for more in-depth exploration of the estuary via kayaks.
