Beautiful cabin, great rooms and layout, and excellent location. Short walk into town and right next to the beach. Just perfect!
Dale B. May 2022
This home was the perfect stay in Cannon Beach. Half a block from the ocean - right in between the two main areas of shops. I can't wait to return.
Joe D. Feb 2022
This is one of our family of 4's favorite vacation rentals. The house is well stocked, clean, and has a homey feel that is comforting and relaxing. There have also been some updates since the last time we stayed here that made the trip even better. The new couch, flooring, and paint are all nice touches. And the new beds and mattresses are very comfortable and make this house a notch above.

Of course, the location also can not be beat. You are walking distance to all of downtown Cannon Beach and just a stones throw from beach access.

We hope to come back here many more times in the future.
Laura N. Dec 2021
We had a wonderful long weekend in Cannon Beach. The house is in a perfect location right at the beach and had everything we needed to stay warm and comfortable!

After opening the front door I knew I was relaxing with 3 special fellows in my life. The new floor and paint has updated this piece of heaven. Arriving upstairs we found the second bedroom to have 2 sets of bunkbeds and a new queen bed. O a few more guests can enjoy this historical cabin near haystack rock and many other attractions in the area. Can't wait to return in the future. Thanks for sharing your home

Place was clean. Pretty short walk to the beach and cannon beach town.

We have stayed here many times. It's our go to for Cannon Beach. The house is cozy and close to everything!
Karen L. Sep 2020
We, John, Karen and our two pups, newly adopted 10yo Inkie along with our Kaya girl who is deaf, blind and has diabetes😢 had a wonderful time at the Beach house😁❤️✌️🐶🐶. We recommend this property and VRBO as a whole to any family or friends looking for a great place to vacation with your pups!

The house is quiet and so close to the beach that it’s easy to go back and forth many times a day! The deck at the house is a sunny refuge, when the beach is cooler and blustery. The house is well appointed for cooking. Linens are plentiful. Beds are comfortable. The large living room is great for families. We loved our stay here and will return!

My husband and I needed a mid week getaway. This cabin is in a perfect area of Cannon Beach. We were very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. The bathroom had wonderful towels and the new bed upstairs had us both in dreamland all night long. Lovely new couch and love seat in the living room I noticed the minutes I walked in the door.

We absolutely loved our time at the historic haystack cabin. The location is absolutely fabulous just steps from an amazing beach. There is a lovely porch in a wonderful garden where hummingbirds will visit you while you’re having coffee. It is quiet and at night you can hear the ocean. It’s not luxurious, so if that’s what you’re looking for it might not be a good fit. There is not a dishwasher and it is a little bit rustic. However, we found it incredibly charming and comfortable which is what we were looking for. It was also nice to see our kids helping out and doing some dishes now and then. The place has lots of things you need to enjoy time at the beach like boogie boards, chairs, wet suites, wood for making a fire, Buckets for sand castles, games, etc. We did long walks and runs on the beach every day and saw the most amazing wild and marine life. The sunsets were magical and if you like photography it’s a photographers dream. We also rarely got in our car except for a few trips to go hiking and explore nearby beaches and were able to walk to get everything we needed. We also had a situation where my daughter dropped her phone under the deck which required a handyman to access it and they were incredibly responsive and helpful. I cannot speak highly enough of how much we loved the place. If you’re looking for a beautiful place to relax with your family and enjoy nature in a casual environment, where there are not big crowds in a beautiful part of the world where people are being responsible and respectful wearing masks and socially distancing this is your spot.
Samantha G. Jul 2020
We have stayed in this cabin before and never disappoints! The cabin is less then a minute walk to the beach or 3-5 minutes to the town, perfect for our family with two little ones. The rooms are both upstairs and beds are comfy, we loved sleeping with the widows open to listen to the ocean. The kitchen has what you need and the laundry room is a must at the beach. There is a wood burning stove perfect for s’mores. We will definitely be back!
Misha P. Mar 2020
I found the comfort of my home in this cozy place, warmed up by the woodstove and only 1 min walk from the beach. The downtown and Sleepy Monk cafe are within walking distance as well, what can I say, I love Cannon Beach!
Charles b c. Feb 2020
Close to beach and town. Nice facility.
Kimberly M. Oct 2019
We were so happy we chose to stay in this great little cabin. It's super close to the beach and the downtown area, enabling us to hardly ever have to hop in the car. Very family friendly (we stayed with our 4 kids) and we all agreed that we want to stay here again next year!
Brian K. Sep 2019
This is the second year we have rented this place, and it was even better. The bed in the master bedroom has been improved, and is far more comfortable. The downstairs great room is truly wonderful. Very much enjoyed the fireplace and relaxing setting. At times parking is a bit of issue, but that is not a big problem. Overall it is a terrific place for a couple with a dog.
Steven J. Jul 2019
We felt right at home the moment we walked in. It has a vintage family cabin charm. Great location to the beach and town. We plan to stay again.
Joe D. Jan 2019
This is our second time back to this home and hopefully there are many more. You can't find a better location in Cannon Beach - right next to the beach and the downtown area. The home itself is warm and comforting. It is a great place to relax, listen to the sounds of the ocean, and play board games.

The only thing stopping this home from getting 5 stars is the lack of a Queen size bed. We work around the Double, but a Queen would make this home a clear 5 star.

Highly recommend this home.
Zoltan S. Dec 2018
Great location!!
Roomy and well stocked.
Lovely glass decor.
Lots of lights and heating options.
Bedroom w/double bed needs a dresser.
Old double bed mattress needs to go. In fact, a Queen size bed would be better.
Room off kitchen would be better used as a bathroom with a soaking tub.
Needs a new vacuum cleaner.

Would definitely rent this home again!! Bought a couple of wine glasses at thrift shop for house as it only had 3. Could use more coffee mugs. Overall, it was a fun vacation home for 4 adults and a small pup.
Ronald C. Sep 2018
My wife and 20 month old stayed here for 5 days and had a wonderful stay. Perfect location steps away from the beach and easy walk into town. Place is very well-stocked with about anything you may need. Cozy, with lots of books for relaxed reading, and lots of beach gear and toys for children and adults. Property management team great and easy to work with for your needs.
Brian K. Sep 2018
To start with the cottage is exactly as written up. I will also say it is very well managed, and the local representative was excellent. The location is very good, and the cottage was well equipped. My wife and I very much enjoyed our week long stay. The main floor space and furnishings were very comfortable. Upstairs is what you should expect of a cottage of this vintage. The beds are small, the ceilings low (in places), and the lighting now overly bright. But it was comfortable and what we expected.
We both very much enjoyed this property both inside and outside as well. The owners and the folks managing it do a very good job.
Siri G. Aug 2018
From the moment we rolled in we felt at home. The place was spotless. And everything you might need was there; beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, board games. Somehow while not stylish it was SO comfortable. And welcoming. It really did feel like you were staying with family... the kind you want to visit. We had a small shower snafu and our contact person Rita could not have been more helpful in resolving it! She checked in to make sure everything was going fixed and it was! Again we loved it and we’ll be back. The Montana Clan!

This house was wonderful! The house is an awesome location, just a quick walk into town and also to haystack rock. It was very clean with plenty of towels, dishes, bedding and other things like chairs for the beach etc. it’s also completely gated which is super nice when you bring your fur babies. The only things I didn’t like about the house were 1) there are sooooo many glass nicknacks, if I had kids I’d be scared to have them in there. 2) the landscapers came while we were enjoying some afternoon napping/relaxing but we weren’t given a heads up about it.
Other than that it really is a great house with an awesome location. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation there.
Linda & Gordon L. May 2018
Location, neighborhood,yard and comfort..
Kaci L. Mar 2018
Right in the middle of Cannon Beach and minutes walk from the ocean, we could not have asked for a better location! The house had a nice area for our family to hang out and served all our needs. Will definitely be looking to come back!
Joe D. Dec 2017
We absolutely loved this home and plan on coming back every year now.
Tracey G. Jul 2017
Great house and location. Short block to the beach and short walk to downtown area. Quiet and relaxing.
Peter K. May 2017
This is a comfortable vintage cottage. The cottage is well furnished and equipped and the location is excellent despite not being oceanfront
Be aware beds are not queen sized which is a bit unusual
Todd G. Apr 2017
Cannon Beach was an easy 3 hour get away from Seattle. We enjoyed being so close to the beach- just 1 house back. Walking to shops and restaurants was easy.
AARON A. Apr 2017
close to the beach and down town
Sharon C. Mar 2017
Comfortable beds, great access to beach and shops and restaurants.

We recently stayed at the Haystack Cottage for a week (June 2016) and had the most amazing time.
Our group consisted of two couples, and the cottage, location, and layout was just perfect for us.
This is a hidden gem, and although the reviews are glowing, they STILL do not do it justice!!
The cottage is literally one house back from the beach, and a couple of blocks from the township of Cannon Beach.
The cottage was immaculately clean, and had everything we could possibly need.
The highlights for us were (apart from the epic location and cute house), the large living space - enough couches for 4 people to each have their own space to snooze and read, and the sunny deck and grass area - perfect for more snoozing and reading.
Cannon Beach itself is just stunning, and we were lucky enough to be there for the annual sand castle competition.
If we are ever back on the Oregon coast, Cannon Beach and the Haystack Cabin will be first on our list.
Thank you for a truly wonderful holiday in your special place.
Josh J. Mar 2016
My family has been going to Cannon Beach for over 3 decades. Lately, we've been giving Vacasa a try, and found this house. The description was fairly accurate. House is not "Ocean-View" as described, but that was okay. It was very close to the beach (50 foot walk), and super close to town, so that made up for it. House was well-sized, was great for a cozy 3-4 day getaway. Some downsides: TV was only 40", only one shower, and the bedroom set up was a little awkward. Otherwise, a solid place to stay, and worth the low price.
Trudi E. Feb 2016
My husband and I throughly enjoyed our stay and loved the beach house feel of the cabin, it was perfect. Just steps to the beach with our two dogs for some ball time and a walk was very relaxing. Accommodations were great and we especially loved the fire burning stove to warm the cabin and chill out with a good book. We will definitely be back.
Jasmine L. Nov 2015
We so enjoyed our time at your home. It was so welcoming and comfortable. Thanks for a great stay. We will gladly come back again!
Ken L. Sep 2015
We walked to the rock every day, to the village frequently, and explored the many gravel lanes and sandy paths that wind throughout Cannan Beach. It's easy to cook in this charming cottage so we ate in and enjoyed family time together in this ideal spot for relaxing. Both bedrooms are up rather steep stairs with a very small shared bathroom there. The main bathroom is on the ground floor so we showered there.
Dan R. Aug 2015
Our recent stay at Haystack Cabin was a delight. Well equipped and comfortable, the house was just right for us. The gathering room provided a great place for visiting or reading or playing board games and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare all our meals. The sound of the surf at night lulled us to sleep and the location of the cabin was perfect for walking to everything.
Highly recommended!
Tom O. Jul 2015
The feeling of happiness and goodness is felt throughout this house. Although it's an old house it was warm and well equipped. The great room is especially inviting.
Melanie W. Jul 2015
My 9yr old exclaimed as soon as he walked in the door "best vacation home ever!" beig a bit more discerning I thought I'd take a look around first but gotta hand it to the kid, he nailed it.

The openess of the main floor is so inviting that you will find yourself wishing for rainy days just so you can light up the stove and play games. The kitchen had everything we needed and then some and the photos don't do the yard justice for its beauty. The bedrooms had plenty of space and comfortable beds and soft sheets. To say we were surprised to find wet suits of various sizes would be an understatment. Being from South Carolina it was a real treat for my son to be able to swim and play in the ocean.

As to the location - walk 30 steps to the left and your on the sand looking at Haystack Rock. If you walk 100 steps to the right you're at the end of the block and right downtown with all the shops. The house has everything you need but holds true to its history and isn't so overmodernized that it lacks personality. It had not been cleaned on our arrival but a call to Vacasa and this was quickly addressed.

In an effot to be objective I wanted to try and think of one thing we really needed, one thing that would offer future renters some additional insight on what to expect and the only thing I could think of was time.....we needed more time.
Andrew M. Jun 2015
We had great expectations for this house and our expectations were exceeded in almost every way. The house is very roomy and comfortable, with lots of big soft couches and chairs to relax on after a long day at the beach, hiking or exploring. The main room has big windows all around so it is always bright and sunny, yet the surrounding colorful trees, bushes and flowers make it feel secluded. Although not on the beach, it is at the end of a quiet, pretty street just within about 100 feet of the beach and a short walk to Haystack rock. It's also just a couple blocks from downtown, so we never needed a car in Cannon Beach. The house is very well equipped, actually better than indicated online or in a phone call to vacasa ( for example there is a hairdryer and a large DVD library). Three beds in the second room for our three kids was also a plus. Only thing lacking is a queen size bed, rather than a full, in the other room to allow more comfortable sleeping for the adults.
Judith B. May 2015
Wonderful weather, great home-close to the beach.
Tom M. Apr 2015
Great common room with awesome wood burning stove. View of the ocean was only from one bedroom window; this was disappointing.
Sommer P. Jan 2015
This house was so perfect for us. Fully equipped with everything you need. We will defiantly be coming back.
Ursula N. Dec 2014
The location of this house was ideal for walks on the beach and into town.
A a previous reviewer said its not brand new but perfect for a comfortable easygoing stay. We really enjoyed walking along the beach usually followed by naps in the comfortable living room with the wood stove blazing away. It was great and just what we needed. If you have dogs there is a fenced yard, warm water hose outside for rinsing off sand and an enclosed mud room. This was a big bonus for us. I would definitely recommend this house for a relaxing stay.
Jesse J. Dec 2014
My husband & I stayed at this lovely beach home for Thanksgiving this year... Not to mention we celebrated our 11 yr. anniversary too! I grew up in Cannon Beach as a child & this was the first home I've rented since I left almost 15 years ago! The house was perfect & very roomy! Clean as a whistle, cozy as a button & so very quaint as well. We were also very surprised by all the bonuses the home had to offer- plenty of DVDs for movie watching, books galore, games, wetsuits, rain gear, the list goes on & on! The best part however was the location... Less than a minute & the beach is at your footsteps! Down town Cannon Beach & shopping is literally minutes away - you simply just can't beat the location! The wood stove was a must have & having plenty of wood on the property to keep us warm & dry was a blessing! We hope you enjoy your stay at this wonderful beach home too & we can't wait to return for another visit! Thank you so very much!
Liz M. Aug 2014
We loved every minute of stay, very relaxing. Our stay was not long enough. We will definitely come again soon. Thx so much for a great couple of days.
Karen B. Apr 2014
Loved the location, perfect escape for spring break
Lynn V. Feb 2014
This a wonderful place to stay at a very reasonable cost. It is very close to the beach and the delightful downtown area. We were very impressed with how clean the cottage was. I would highly recommend it.
Tom K. Feb 2014
My wife loves the ocean and storms and she got the whole thing. We could hear the roar of the waves at night with a window open and we had thunder and lightening twice. The beach house met all of our expectations and Cannon Beach did not disappoint.
James S. Nov 2013
A very "beachy" feeling house in a perfect location - park the car and walk wherever you need to go. Although it says it sleeps six, there are only 4 beds (2 dbl + 2 twin) in 2 bedrooms so take that into consideration.
Amanda W. Jul 2013
The beach had the perfect location. This was very important to us because we had twin 4 years olds and didn't want to have to be far in case they wanted food or a bathroom. The house is a older beach house so it is very functional of everything you need. If you are looking for a brand new house this may not be for you, but this house has everything you need. The absence of a dishwasher wasn't any big deal. GREAT Location and no need to drive anywhere.
Lujean W. Jul 2013
It was a great, cozy house, near everything. We had a very fun time :)
Doug R. Feb 2013
Great property. We will go here again
Barbara H. Nov 2012
Everything was perfect in this home. Looks as if it has been well love on the Oregon coast. It was a chilly evening when we arrived. The wood stove heated both the house and our hearts quickly. The kitchen is well stocked along with the wood pile. A home away from home with plenty to keep you busy if you choose.
kathleen b. Apr 2012
We truly enjoyed our stay at this property. The location was super -- one block from the beach and just a few blocks from town. The house was very clean and comfortable with every amenity we needed...even our dogs were happy having a fenced yard! It was our 10th year spending spring break in Cannon Beach and this property was probably one of the best!
Doug K. Mar 2012
We loved this house. It is steps to the beach and a short walk of only a block or two to all the great restaurants and stores. We liked the living room, kitchen,TV,etc. The rooms upstairs were fine. It is a great place for dogs with a fenced backyard. Our only complaint was we did not know how to operate the Direct TV remote (recommend directions). Vacasa Rentals also responded quickly to any questions. We will be coming back to this place.
Manager response:
Thanks for the tip on the remote, we will put some detailed instructions in the guest book. We are glad you had a great stay!
Chad B. Dec 2011
Great house, close to beach and offers great view+amenities.
John K. Nov 2011
Wonderful location. We didnt need our car. Easy walk everywhere. Fenced yard nicely landscaped, great for small pets. All the comforts needed for a rest at the beach.
