Spacious Cottage with Enclosed Yard - Walk to the Beach, Weddings Welcome

Spend a peaceful Oregon Coast getaway at this charming Gearhart vacation rental with an enclosed yard and easy beach access! This classic, wood-shingled beach bungalow has everything you'll need, including a Ping-Pong table, for a memorable trip or intimate wedding in this wonderfully quiet beachside community.

The cottage is located a block from Gearhart Ocean State Park and within a mile of the historic Gearhart Golf Links. Bring stand-up paddleboards and kayaks to explore nearby Neawanna Creek, then finish your day with dinner and a pint at McMenamins Sand Trap located just a mile away in the heart of the community.

Inside, you'll find a clean design with hardwood floors, knotty pine walls, a large plaid sectional sofa, and a gas fireplace with a gorgeous stone facade. Returning from a walk on the beach, warm up in front of the fire while you talk about the day or listen to the Bose stereo. French doors lead out to an enclosed yard, complete with a patio and gas grill. The enclosed space is the perfect place to let the kids play, or set up an archway and chairs for an intimate wedding ceremony.

There is a large wooden dining table in this open living space, making family meals easy to plan and serve. And in the full kitchen, the chef in your group will be treated to granite countertops, a dishwasher, refrigerator, stovetop/oven, microwave, and even a coffee grinder. Bring your own beans from home or pick some up in neighboring Cannon Beach's Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters.

The main level has a comfortable bedroom with two twin beds (perfect for kids!), as well as the full bathroom, complete with a separate shower and a soaking tub. When you stay at the Peaceful Cottage in Gearhart, you'll also have a laundry room with a washer and dryer - so don't worry about keeping clothes clean while you explore the Coast!

Head upstairs for family time in the fun game room, which is ideal for music lovers as it provides a keyboard. In addition, everyone will appreciate the air hockey table, mini pool table, DVD player, and the VCR. Bring your favorite movies from home, or pick one from the shelves. There are two sofas for seating, so everyone can find a spot for movie nights. WiFi is provided as well so you can stay connected to the office or your favorite blog.

Two of the three upstairs bedrooms have queen beds, and the other has a full bed. All of the bedrooms have cozy, colorful quilts, bedside tables, and reading lamps. Everyone will want to sleep in and have a relaxing morning here!

This great Gearhart location is just blocks from a beautiful stretch of sandy beach. A peaceful, quintessential beach town, you can spend your days unwinding at the shore, perusing through one of the handful of shops and galleries, or playing a round of golf at the course. Plus, most attractions in town are walkable from your door!

On days you don't feel like preparing lunch or dinner, walk to Pacific Way Cafe for one of the best meals that you'll find in the area. More options are just south in neighboring Seaside. If you feel like exploring, Astoria is 15 miles north and boasts many restaurants, museums, and shops. And in 11 miles, you can be browsing galleries, walking along the beach by Haystack Rock, or sipping a mocha at Sleepy Monk in artsy, popular Cannon Beach.

The quiet and charming oceanside community of Gearhart is an ideal location for a Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental. Come enjoy a carefree beach getaway or plan your special wedding day at this peaceful cottage filled with entertainment amenities, gleaming hardwood floors, and tons of classic beach cottage character!

Great stay for any family looking to relax and enjoy a peaceful trip, great location! My family and I had a wonderful stay!
Lee F. Apr 2022
We had so much fun there was plenty of room everything was decorated beautifully it was professionally clean! Just wanted to let you know however that one of your light shades Brooke in the kitchen by the refrigerator we have no idea let me to do that I swear to goodness that it was not us only thing I can think of it was the heat from the lightbulb in a cold house that made it shatter? Also your lockbox for your key we couldn’t figure out how to put it back together so we left the key and the lock box cover on the countertop. There is another conference in September that we would love to attend and would love to rent this house again I believe it starts on the 23rd but will be coming on the 27th and staying through the weekend? I will look to see if this house is free but I thought I would ask while I was writing you a letter?
Manager response:
Hi, Lee! We're glad you enjoyed staying with us. The property manager has taken care of the broken light shade. Thank you!
Alice M. Oct 2021
This home is terrific for family gatherings and retreats with friends. If you are looking for elegance, look elsewhere, but if you want a comfortable, happy environment look no farther.
Jana F. Aug 2021
We loved that this house had plenty of space and was so close to the beach!
Diana H. Aug 2021
This has worked perfectly for our family the last two years. Unfortunately, you have priced us out with your recent increases. That makes me very sad. Not worth the price anymore with no ocean view.
Catherine W. Jul 2021
four bedroom home with fenced backyard; nice place
james g. Jan 2021
Great location and back yard. House was well stocked. The separate area for the TV was great for the kids. Was able to work a bit with the Great WIFI in the house.
Benjamin H. Nov 2020
I loved the open floor plan. It worked great for kids upstairs and adults downstairs
Amy F. Oct 2020
It was such a wonderful getaway. Very quiet neighborhood and a perfect fenced yard for the littles to play.
Marc C. Aug 2020
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was comfortable and the backyard was a great haven for hanging out, barbecuing and playing badminton. The walk through the dunes to the beach was beautiful and the water was warm enough to body surf a bit. We’ll be back.
Lori C. Jul 2020
its a perfect location to enjoy lovely Gearhart beach.
Paula H. Nov 2019
We had a very comfortable stay at peaceful cottage. Extremely well equipped kitchen. Super clean. Perfect location. Couldn’t have asked for more. Would definitely love to come back!!
Jack P. Apr 2019
Everything in place in the house as advertised. All the essentials for a beach house, and very easy access to beach and Gearhart town. Great back deck and yard to enjoy the morning sunrise. We will be back.
Christopher K. Feb 2019
Location is great, home is well appointed for families.
Robert B. Aug 2018
This is a great house for a family vacation. Well stocked and a comfortable layout. Fenced in backyard was a real plus. The trail to the beach is directly across the street and you can hear the surf at night with the the windows open. We would defiantly recommend this house to friends and family.
jorrit v. Aug 2018
Second time I’ve stayed here. Once again it did not disappoint. Perfectly located, clean and comfortable. I wish there were a few more kitchen utensils, but that is about the only thing I would improve.
Manager response:
We have inventoried the kitchen and added any items that were missing. Thank you!
Wendy S. Jul 2018
Plenty of space for everyone, including bathrooms. Loved the short walk to the beach and the quiet neighborhood. This is our second stay and Peaceful Cottage and the only place we will choose on our next trips to Gearhart.
Davida W. Apr 2018
This little cottage had a great feel with plenty of room for our family. It was walking distance to the beach where we enjoyed razor clamming. It had all the need amenities. We didn't need the TV, instead used our music. The kids enjoyed the air hockey table and played clue. The garbage man was very kind to help us on garbage day. Close to seaside for shopping and Astoria where we fished.
Chad U. Apr 2018
Quiet neighborhood
Allison G. Sep 2017
We spent a week here. The location to the beach is awesome. However there were some issues with the property.
Overall there is outdated furniture, No master bedroom, Kitchen supplies worn and minimal. The TV is outdated, no cable available---but we brought apple TV with us and could not hook this up.
Backyard was big and our dogs loved it, but did not feel very private. They loved running on the beach though!
Jorrit V. Sep 2017
easily accommodated many people.
Michelle L. Aug 2017
The house was comfortable, tidy, and in a beautiful location. LOVED the soaking tub, all the windows, the large dining table, gas stove, and fenced back yard for our small dog.
It is about 1/4 mile walk to the beach, but it is a gorgeous trail through grassy dunes to a wide, beautiful beach. We loved walking it.
Be prepared for small beds (queens seemed more like full sizes) and no closets. there are drawers and shelves to store some clothes.
Anthony A. Jul 2017
Nice house, but none of the bedrooms have closets. The only place to hang clothes is a crowded hall closet downstairs. The location is great, but one small outdated TV isn't enough. It listed a ping pong table was at the house, but we couldn't find it. And the air hockey machine doesn't work. If some more was put into the house to upgrade the amenities I think it would be a great vacation house.
GAIL T. Jun 2017
The GOOD- overall decor of the home, cleanliness, having washer/dryer, good linen supply, enough place settings, game closet, air hockey, separate living spaces for adults & kids, fenced backyard, dog-friendly, hammock on the back deck. Close to Seaside. Windows were great for lots of fresh air.

The NOT SO GOOD- comfort & condition of the living room furniture (very bad!), kitchen supplies for cooking/serving & the disorganization of the kitchen, the long walking distance to the beach, and no TV other than an older DVD/VCR player.
Ellen M. May 2017
This was a great spot for our family vacation. We had 2 grandparents, a family of 4 (kids ages 3 yrs and 9months) and a family of 3 (kid age 6 months). The house was great for us. Close enough to the beach that we could return for naps. House was clean and well maintained. We would recommend this house to our friends and family.
Heidi H. Apr 2017
We had a fantastic time! We had 6 adults, 3 kiddos and two dogs, and the house was perfect for us. Kitchen was well stocked, rooms/beds comfortable and plenty of games and backyard space. It was a close walk to Pacific Way Cafe and Sweet Shop, not to mention very close to the beach. We loved this place and will certainly try to rent again. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
Robert H. Jan 2017
Love Gearhart! Cute house, clean, great location, nice neighbors. We will come back.
Manuel U. Nov 2016
Our family had a great time relaxing and enjoy the surrounding area! We were happy there was no TV because it forced us to play games and spend time with one another. Great weekend of bonding, relaxation, and fun!
Kim N. Oct 2016
I was happy with location We love Gearhart. The property was clean and the staff was helpful but the overall feel of the house was is wasn't a family home just a rental so it didn't have that homey touch are feel as if it was a real home but a hotel rental. But overall it was a good time. The weather was great and we shopped and saw a heard of elk. So we had a great time.
Jerry B. Sep 2016
Close to the beach, very comfortable stay for 6, would do it again.
Shannon B. Sep 2016
Cozy home in a great location. Kitchen was very "modestly" stocked with cookware, etc. We needed to borrow and buy things in order to cook and serve a nice dinner. Would definitely bring more things from home if we rent this home again.
Jennifer C. Sep 2016
Great house and location - can walk to the beach and to a coffee shop and grocery store. Short drive to Seaside. The backyard was great to relax in. Will stay again!
Renee B. Sep 2016
Disappointing condition of house. Size just right for our family get together.
Elizabeth S. Aug 2016
Over all, the home and it's content were what we hoped for. I recommend others to rent and stay there. I will be more than pleased,to rent it again. Thank you for everything.
Sue S. Aug 2016
Very nice, clean and comfortable stay in a quiet neighborhood with a short walk through the dunes to the beach.
Diane L. Jun 2016
Love this cottage and enjoy ourselves each time we visit.
Melanie B. Jun 2016
Had a great time at this property. Beautiful quiet neighborhood with wild life along the beach. Was awesome to see. The local acquirium was pretty impressive too. Had a great time while in Gearhart.
Jared C. Mar 2016
We had a great stay with 2 adult couples and 3 kids (all under 10). We had plenty of room to roam and have individual space if needed. Even during the rainy days, almost all of them, we had plenty to do to keep us occupied. The cottage is a short walk to the beach which made it nice not to have to load up in a vehicle when full of wet clothes and sand! The cottage also has an outside shower which proved extremely useful in regards to removing sand.
Overall, our stay was wonderful and relaxing. The location of the cottage is great. Away from the hustle of Seaside but really close to go join the hustle when we wanted to. The cottage falls just short of a 5 star rating due to the comparison I have to other rentals that truly earned the 5 star rating.
Terri M. Mar 2016
we have a great time except for the carpenter ants
Manager response:
We apologize that there were ants in the home during your stay. The Property Manager will work on a solution to make sure they are no longer a nuisance.
Alisa D. Feb 2016
Nice location, very close to the water. Updated kitchen.
Cindy N. Nov 2015
We had the best time at this getaway. The rec area upstairs made it great for the kids to play and the adults to visit downstairs. The weather was pleasant. Very quiet neighborhood, we felt safe all the time.
Colleen B. Aug 2015
The house was very spacious. It had a great backyard with a hammock that's been kept up very nicely. there's plenty to do, the beach is close, there's ping pong, air hockey, plenty of board games and books to read. Our group was very pleased and would definitely stay at the peaceful cottage again.
Diane L. Aug 2015
Have stayed at Peaceful Cottage twice and both times were fantastic. Plan to stay a few days every year when we visit Oregon.
Erin W. Jul 2015
We had a great time and can't wait to come back!
Richard N. Jun 2015
We came to play golf. We came away loving Gearhart and Peaceful Cottage.

The house was clean and comfortable. The Bose radio was really appreciated.
Allison W. Jun 2015
The house was a great fit for our weekend stay with friends. The yard was fenced and large enough for the kids and small dog to play. The location was great, only a short walk to the beach and bakery. We enjoyed our stay!
Karen K. Apr 2015
thank you for the lovely home everyone was pleased and what a roomy home we would love to do it again soon
Rebecca P. Apr 2015
It seemed strange to us that the only television was upstairs and not in the main sitting area downstairs...BUT it is the perfect place to visit with friends and family.
Pat S. Apr 2015
Kids enjoyed bicycles, porch hammock, Japanese bath and exploring the house and property. House met our needs!
Mychal W. Mar 2015
If you are looking for a get away then this is the place to stay. The beach access via a small trail is a short walk away.
Mary D. Mar 2015
Quiet peaceful area. Will definitely come back. Loved the idea of no TV on main floor.
Jessica G. Feb 2015
We were very pleased with the house and the location. it was a very quite neighborhood and extremely relaxing. we loved that the house was only like a 5 minute drive to Seaside and I was happy to see a Dutch Bros right down the HWY from the house. i will definitely be looking into renting this house again. Thank you Vacasa!
Manager response:
Thank you for this great review! We are so glad that you loved the home and the great location.
Ray A. Jul 2014
We had three families share the house (6 adults 4 kids), and it was very nice and comfortable...we mostly used the living area...the location is great for kids to just go and explore the little town, or for everyone to just go to the beach. Overall it was a great stay!
