Lovely, comfortable & rustic beach rental, Oregon
|No rental rates available - please contact the owner|
When you arrive you will smell the ocean and feel the salt air. This lovely private home is across the street from the water - all the access and spectacular views without the "beachfront" rates!
The home is rustic and built with the highest quality construction. It has 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and a 3-side wrap-around deck on the ground floor (with an outdoor shower and gas grill on the private rear deck). It is among the most cozy and inviting places you're likely to visit. It is the perfect place for a family vacation or a romantic getaway. The inside has a glass-door wood-burning stove (Jotul) and the entire interior is done in douglas fir, western red cedar, and pine. The exterior is shingled in white cedar.
There is a sleeping loft above a cathedral-ceiling main living area. Upstairs, beyond the loft, you enter the hallway leading to the master bedroom with master bath next to it - there is a wonderful view of the water from the master bedroom. Then, another set of stairs leads up to a BELVEDERE, a fully glassed in sitting area on the 3rd floor. Covered benches here have a panoramic view of Netarts Bay and the Pacific Ocean; they are perfect for snuggling up and reading or listening to music or the waves all day long. From the belvedere, you step out onto a 3rd floor deck with the same spectacular view of the water, only closer - and you can smell it - it is breathtaking to watch the sunsets from here. One can also watch the seals basking on the beach at the very tip of the Netarts Bay Sand-spit (separates the bay from the ocean - see the "maps" on our OregonCoastCabin (site) as they wait for the tides to change...
The cabin is right across the street from Netarts Bay, and there is immediate access to the bay and ocean beaches. One of our favorite things to do is to hike on the beach to the town of Oceanside (about a 30 minute walk north) to have dinner at Rosanna's Cafe; come share our enthusiasm!

THREE CAPES SCENIC AREA
Netarts Bay is located at the origin of Cape lookout, one of 3 magnificent Orregon State Parks and one of the well known 'Three Capes' of the Three Capes Scenic Area:
CAPE LOOKOUT STATE PARK - just to the south end of Netarts Bay, this spectacular cape extends miles into the pacific ocean and is ideal for hiking, whale watching (in season), beach-combing and hang-gliding.
CAPE KIWANDA STATE PARK - a little further to the south is Cape Kiwanda, near pacific City. This area is famous for itsfishing fleet of dories that are launched directly into the surf.
CAPE MEARES STATE PARK - just to the north of Netarts Bay are Tillamook Bay and Cape Mears. Cape Mears is known for its historic lighthouse and the Octopus Tree (native burrial site) as well as sweeping views of the ocean.
'Between the Capes Trail Guide' (web sea--- for it!) is available on line and can help you navigate and appreciate your way among the Three Capes
FISHING AND CRABBING
There's nearly always something in season, from bright fall chinook salmon returning to the coastal rivers, to spring salmon, to steelhead in the winter by driftboat, to sturgeon and silver salmon in the Columbia river - we can connect you with wonderful local guides if you want to fish. If you'd like to smoke some of your catch, we are glad to provide detailed instructions and let you loose with our family's smoker - few things are more healthy or delicious than home-smoked fish! If you want to go after dungeness crab in the bay, or clams (when the tides are right), it is a simple matter to rent a small boat and all the gear you need just down the street at the Marina - they'll even clean and cook the crabs for you if you'd like; mussels don't even require equipment and can be simply "picked" from certain large rocks when the tides are low enoufh. Making home made sea food chowder and ciopino is a treat our family really enjoys. The bay has a variety of clams - all that's needed are the will, a few simple tools (which are at the cabin) and a minus tide - consult the tide tables before booking if this is import
FALL AND WINTER ON THE COAST
Fall and winter are often overlooked at the Oregon Coast. The weather turns colder and rainier, but this signals the change of season and the return of the
salmon to the rivers from the ocean. When our family lived in Portland, we used to love to enjoy Thanksgiving and the winter holidays at the beach. It gets quiet with respect to people. But if you enjoy seeing (or surfing) large waves, and watching storms either from the beach or from right in front of a roaring woodstove, winter at the coast can be a special time indeed for you and your friends and family.
MOUNTAINS, SKIING, AND GOLF - COMBINE THESE WITH A TRIP TO THE COAST!
The Oregon coast is not usually a 'golf or skiing destination'. However, there are golf courses available and resorts with courses are being built along the coast to Lincoln Ciity (a bit more 'built-up' than Netarts Bay). Also, the potential visitor interested in golf or the mountains & skiing should note tthat Central Oregon (the Bend-Redmond area) is indeed a golfer's and skiier's paradise. A trip to our cabin could be easily plannned to include a stop
in Central Oregon for golfing or skiing or a stop at Mt Hood (link below) for spring/summer skiing followed by a trip to our place on the coast. Interestingly, Central Oregon's climate is entirely different from the Willamette Valley (Portland, Salem, Eugene areas) or the Coast. Central Oregon is high desert with sagebrush and is sunny about 350 days a year! There are wonderful rivers, mountains rising out of the desert, and old western towns to visit in addition to some of the best golf and skiing around.

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.
Rustic Relaxing Experience

Great Place. This cabin has a rustic appeal which is very inviting and relaxing. It has a nice wood burning stove as the center of activity in the main room. No T.V. The beds are wonderfully confortable. If you want to lay low and relax, this is a good place.

Pacific Coast Stay

My two brothers and our three sons came out for a 3 night stay and it was great. Plenty of room and areas to congragate while cooking steaks on the grill. We watched some local 4th of July fireworks from the third floor balcony and had a blast. Cabin is very nice and rustic with all the comforts of home.
A great place to stay

This beach home is wonderful for family get-a-ways. We found everything we needed to make ourselves comfortable. The view of the sunsets was breathtaking. We were able to walk and jog on the beach and enjoy the abundance of nature. There are many interesting side trips that can be taken from this cabin. Enjoy!
Charming yet rustic cabin
September 2, 2009
Very well stocked with fishing poles, kites and some kids stuff. Charming home with personality. Parking was tight for two vehicles. Beach path about 3 houses towards marina for public access is close. My only big complaint would be the double bed in master. Not great sleeping for two people in my opinion. But the kids loved the swings out front and our whole family loved the belvedere upstairs for great surf and sunset watching.

We had planned a pre-Christmas vacation for our family and had to turn around due to bad weather. Bill and Laura were very generous in allowing us to reschedule for March with no loss of the rental fees. We found this cabin to be perfect to accommodate our son, his wife and 2 children and our 26 year old daughter---along with my husband and myself. We had ample space to be together and yet have private space to get away for naps and "private" time when needed. We found the cabin to be well-equipped and comfortable. Our only complaint was the mattress in the loft bedroom was uncomfortable. We found that a lot of local attractions for tourists were not yet open. If we return again it will be in late Spring or Summer.

Oregon Coast Family Vacation

This home was well furnished and very comfortable for all three generations of us that stayed there. The little ones loved the swing and the rest of us loved the view from the belvedere . Our only disappointment was the house directly across the street which blocked the view from the livingroom. We would definitely stay here again.

It was the perfect place to celebrate our mother's birthday. You have created the perfect "get away". Each room is finished with great detail and creativity. Thank you for a weekend to remember.
Great house with only a few minor adjustments needed
February 28, 2008
What a great house! Just need to get the parental lock off the DVD player and T.V. so adults can watch what they would like. The Kitchen sink also had a leak, and a pan was under the drip. Other than that the place was wonderful. Basic cookware in kitchen and very comfortable place to stay for 7 people.
"...Even though we have not met you, we felt that we really got to know you by staying at your cabin..."
"We could really see the love and care you have put into each detail, each area of your place..."
"...Your hard work and dedication to your dream cabin really shows! We felt honored to be able to showcase that so that others can truly appreciate the beauty that lives on Pearl Street!..."
"...thank you for the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful "shack." We had a wonderful time..."
"...We would definitely be interested in renting it out maybe later this summer or fall and I already have a couple of people interested in renting it as well..."
"...Thank You, Thank You!"
"...We can't wait to come back when we have more time. We loved the place and had a great weekend. The boys and I want to go crabbing again. Thanks again for opening up your home so others can enjoy it and the beauty of the coast!!!..."
Interested in Renting this Property?
About:We used to live in Portland but had to move to the Bay Area in 1996 for work reasons. We maintain strong ties to Oregon and return at least twice each year to Netarts - our favorite place.
We bought this when it was a very simple cabin in 1992. We have made an addition and we have steadily worked...
