Perfect for a coastal getaway with friends or family, this Arch Cape vacation cottage offers beautiful ocean views, a quiet, relaxing location, and lots of nearby shore for exploring! This cottage on the northern Oregon Coast is the ideal respite from everyday life nestled right between Hug Point State Park and Oswald West State Park. When you're ready to explore the shore, beach access is only three blocks away. The beaches on this part of the coast are quite scenic. Take a short drive to Hug Point to discover a seasonal waterfall, caves carved into sandstone cliffs, and tide pools accessible during low tide. While Arch Cape is a small, sleepy residential community, a bit to the north is bustling and popular Cannon Beach featuring numerous galleries, shops, and restaurants. The town of Manzanita is about nine miles south, and you'll want to take an afternoon to explore the small bookstores, galleries, and bakeries here.
Inside, you'll be surrounded by comfy sofas, rocking chairs, hardwood floors, and a woodbeamed ceiling in the living area. Everyone will be able to pick their favorite spot to read a book borrowed from the shelf, watch DVDs and BluRays on the TV, or just hang out and talk all with breathtaking views out the large picture windows. Not just for a summer vacation, you can watch dramatic winter storms right from the warmth of the living area. Any time of year, a wood stove provides both heat and ambiance to the living and dining areas, inviting you to enjoy leisurely meals and postdinner discussions while finishing off the wine and watching the sunset over the ocean.
A full kitchen no dishwasher provides you with all you'll need for whipping up tasty, homemade vacation food. Outside, you'll find a deck with a bench out on the bluff for unobstructed views of vast horizons, ocean surf, and stretching shorelines from the prominence of Cape Falcon to the east to closer by Arch Cape, Castle Rock, and Hug Point State Park. Look north to distant views of iconic Haystack Rock and rugged Tillamook Head. If you look carefully or bring binoculars, you will see 'Terrible Tilly,' the Tillamook Rock Light House isolated a mile out at sea. Other amenities include WiFi and a washerdryer.
