Plus, there are tons of hiking trails and state parks nearby - not to mention the town of Cannon Beach with ample activities any time of year!
With hardwood floors and high ceilings, this home has an open, airy beach feel!
When you walk through the front door, you're greeted by the fireplace and mantle, surrounded by soft leather armchairs and a couch. The entertainment center along the wall has a flatscreen TV where you can watch cable or stream Netflix, and it's easy to get stuck in this room thanks to the ocean views out the window.
Around the corner, the charming kitchen has everything from wine glasses to a dishwasher, so the chef can prepare a fantastic meal! With four spots at the dining table, plus a table outside on the patio, there's plenty of room for everyone to enjoy some home cooking.

The second bedroom has a twin bed and trundle that are perfect for the kids to cozy up in. With another full bathroom and sofabed, this home can fit up to six people!
The back patio is perfect for relaxing and listening to the waves roll in, and there's a sizable backyard that has a fence around it. There's even a gas grill to whip up some BBQ, and wood provided for the fireplace. With a private washer/dryer you can keep your belongings nice and clean, and there are also a boogie board, WiFi, Blu-ray, and a DVD player for your use!
The sandy beach is just steps from your doorstep, making this home the perfect base for any beach bums who want to spend their days surfing, swimming, or building sand castles! There are plenty of places in town to rent out sporting equipment, or you could head out to sea on a fishing charter or whale-watching crew - the coast is spectacular any time of year!
Ecola State Park is less than a mile away with unbelievable views, trails, and Sea Lion Rock. Of course, you can always venture into town for a better vista of Haystack Rock (or the 'Goonies' rocks), a famous site along the Oregon coastline! Cannon Beach also offers countless options for bars, restaurants, and shopping, and there are many daytrips you could take along the famous Highway 101.

Loved our stay at Chapman Cottage. Very cozy, comfortable and well stocked. Surprisingly quiet with a very nice ocean view. Located right across the street from Chapman Beach.
Laura A.Jun 2022
Comfortable house. Great amenities.
Short walk to gorgeous ocean!
Dawn G.May 2022
It was in a great location. You could just walk across the street and you were on the beach. I loved the there were locol elk wondering around the neighborhood. The kitchen could use some better lighting as it was pretty dark near the cook top.
sloane w.Nov 2021
Steps from the beach and beautiful sunsets!
Soeurette C.Oct 2021
Lovely ocean view, but as stated in other reviews many things are dated in this home.
Lisa F.Oct 2021
Exceptions are the stove was not cleaned . No light for the bbq. BBQ was dirty. And toilet seat not clean. The comforter on day bed is torn, iron board not covered, no place to hang clothes up. Other than that it was a comfortable and beautiful place! Would definitely go back!!!
Hi, Lisa! We are glad you enjoyed your stay despite some cleaning mishaps. Housekeeping is addressing the oversights, and we will take care of the back deck light and comforter. Thank you for bringing these to our attention. We hope to see you again!
Lorna L.Oct 2021
We really enjoyed the location as it was right across the street from the beach trail and very quiet. The home was clean, but needs lots of updates &/or repairs. For our purposes (a "seniors" sister's weekend in Cannon Beach) it met our needs, but we'll look elsewhere for future stays.
Thank you for staying with us, Lorna, and thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us! Guest’s feedback regarding their particular preferences is always considered and passed along to our local manager to review, to make necessary upgrades for future guests’ pleasures and comforts. We hope you’ll give us another chance to host your next stay. Thank you!
Ruth S.Sep 2021
The location of this beach rental in Cannon Beach is ideal! The entrance to the beach is just across the street. It is close to Ecola Park for beautiful hiking and downtown for great eating! Loved it!
Danielle M.Aug 2021
Very sweet little cottage right across from the beach! This would be best for a family with children as the second room is only a twin bed with a trundle bed. Very clean and otherwise good place.
Karen M.Aug 2021
It was great being able to just walk across the street and be at such a beautiful beach!
Heidi O.Jul 2021
This was our family’s first trip to Cannon Beach and we loved it. The Chapman Cottage was somewhat of a disappointment. It is very old, needed a deep clean and lacked many amenities you would expect from a beach rental (no beach towels or chairs were available for use). The queen bed was adequate but the day bed and trundle bed were not sufficient for teenagers (trundle bed says 40lb weight limit on it-this was not mentioned in the listing). The backyard is overgrown and overall, the house felt old and not maintained. The absolute highlight of the house is the location which could not be beat. We will definitely return to Cannon Beach and stay in a different rental next time.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Heidi. While we are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the location, we regret that the condition of the home did not meet your expectations. We apologize for any misunderstanding regarding this listing. We attempt to be as transparent with our listings as possible and provide accurate and current photos, amenities lists, and descriptions so guests can make an informed choice about what they are paying for and make the right decision for their needs. We encourage guests to reach out with any questions or concerns before booking, as we are happy to help. We have shared your comments regarding updates and upkeep needed with the local manager who will work with the homeowner to make any necessary improvements. We hope you will give us a second chance to impress you in the future!
Carolyn L.Jun 2021
Loved the view from the house and discovering a great little beach at that end of town!
Richard W.May 2021
We love the location of Chapman Cottage, and it's comfy atmosphere.
Lynnee T.Nov 2020
Our family enjoyed the close location to the beach, well stocked kitchen, cozy fireplace, and comfy beds!
Richard W.Oct 2020
Chapman cottage was a perfect place for our long-delayed get-away. Great beach access, and quiet location.
Thomas M.Oct 2020
The Chapman Cottage (aka 'el Cortijillo', the little farmhouse) is located on the north side of Cannon Beach, near Ecola State Park. The cottage is located on an oceanside bluff. From there, it's a quick walk down the dune to the uncrowded beach.
The cottage met all our needs (functional kitchen, TV/Cable, good WiFi, and a comfortable sofa, chairs and bed.) From there, it's less than a mile to the downtown, commercial part of Cannon Beach.
While we were there, we saw a small herd of elk meandering the neighborhood, casually munching on bushes in people's yards, paying us and others no mind.
Jill A.Sep 2020
We especially loved the artwork and beach themed decor. The location was close to Cannon Beach yet far from the crowds. We could walk to the beach and to town.
Linda D.Jul 2020
This wonderful cottage is literally steps from wonderful Chapman Beach. With a great ocean view, this home had everything we needed for a fantastic beach vacation!
Caryn P.Jul 2020
If you want to be on the beach and walk out your door in the morning down a sand dune to the water, you want to be here. It’s right by the hug rocks you see in the photos. I don’t think you can be closer. The home owners leave out beach & bath towels, soaps, paper towels, detergent for the dishes & clothes, cooking supplies as well as many other thoughtful amenities. There are supplies for the fireplace setup and ready for use. It is clean and the towels and sheets smell newly washed. The beds were comfortable and even the backyard was scenic with a table and grill. We were very happy staying here and had an amazing stay.
Camille P.Jul 2020
Location can’t be beat. Right across the street from the north end of the beach, away from the crowds, near lots of great tidepooling. Large deck on the back to change out of wet and sandy stuff before going inside. Lots of beach toys for the kids. View of ocean sunsets from the living room. Would stay here again.
Mary Ann O.Jun 2020
As close to the beach as you can get, and all the comforts of home! Highly recommend.. would return in a heartbeat.
Kathleen F.Jun 2020
I would give it 5 stars for the view and proximity to the beach, but the beds knocked it down to 4 stars. The small bedroom bed squeaks so bad. My 6 year old was in the bed and even his tiny 52lbs movement made the bed squeak. It probably just needs some bolts tightened. The larger bedroom bed was super soft, which was fine for me but my husband ended up sleeping on the sofa. Just an FYI for families there is no bathtub, which was fine but if my son was any younger it would have been impossible to get him clean without a tub. Kitchen is well stocked. The backyard is lovely and a nice BBQ. There are issues with the front walk, so be careful if you are not sure on your feet as you could trip easily on the front pavers. Overall its a really. charming and sweet little home. We would come back, but with blow up mattresses :)
Hi, Kathleen! Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay at Chapman Cottage. We will be evening out the pavers as soon as we have the time between reservations to do so; in the meantime, we have placed non-slip mats across the pavers to prevent any tripping. We hope to see you again!
Ronald G.Mar 2020
Always love staying here. Warm and cozy cottage on the coast.
Frederick L.Jan 2020
Great location by a less populated beach. We had all the amenities that the family needed.
Charlotte M.Nov 2019
Hi,love the great view and privacy.
Ruth M.Oct 2019
Chapman Cottage is located right across the street from the beach with a great view right from the living room, good for storm watching. Nice quiet neighborhood not far from downtown Cannon Beach.
Kirk G.Oct 2019
The cottage is ideal. Enough space, privacy, and facilities.
DD C.Sep 2019
The bed in the 2nd bedroom squeaked so loud it woke up my daughter so she had to sleep on the couch! There wasn't any tables or closet in the tiny 6 x 6 room that was the size of a closet. The cheap metal daybed is all worn out and needs to replaced!
There were several fireplace bricks broken left in a heap that wasn't shown in the pictures. Was supposed to be a supply of wood to use but there was one Duraflame log?!!! Thank goodnesswe'd brought our own wood as backup to use. The whole house is really dated and musty needs to be refurbished.
The best part of the place was the view and beach proximity. With the money they charge for this place you think they could at least have some nice chairs to sit on the front deck than the cheap plastic chairs they have.
Thank you for your valuable feedback. It helps us to improve the unit .The Owner is remodeling, and we have made repairs. We hope we can host you again soon!
Christine G.Sep 2019
We had a wonderful time in Cannon Beach. Chapman Cottage is ideally located, and has everything you might need. Hope to return soon!
Ross H.Aug 2019
Great location. Cozy and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.
Courtney R.Jul 2019
The view is wonderful, and it’s a short walk across the street to a secluded beach next to Ecola State Park. The cottage is cozy, clean, and has everything you need. Highly recommend!
Charlotte M.May 2019
Hi the view was great.
Dineen F.Apr 2019
I loved the location and the beach that this cute home sat in front of. I can’t wait to return.
David H.Apr 2019
Location, view, the ocean across the street. The house was clean and had every thing to cook and eat with.
Would stay there again.
Tasha C.Apr 2019
We all loved the cottage and it’s beautiful beach. It is so tastefully decorated and comfortable. We had everything we needed and the beach was perfect. It had so much to explore and had very few people. It was exactly what we needed. We will definitely be back.
Albert L.Apr 2019
Comfortable stay here. Sunrise and waves will not disappoint.
Linda L.Jan 2019
Loved the view from the home. It was very comfortable and well stocked with kitchen supplies. Quiet neighborhood and street. Was able to contact Vacasa when we had a couple of issues to deal with - they were all solved and were "Johnny on the spot" to help us.
William M.Oct 2018
This is a very nice small home. It has everything you need. It is located in Cannon Beach and is directly across the street from Chapman Beach. The front living room large picture window overlooks the beach and ocean. My wife and I enjoyed the stay and there was plenty of room for us. There is a nice kitchen, living room, 1 large bedroom and 1 small bedroom, 2 bathrooms and a nice washer and dryer for your clothes. The beach is beautiful and long and wide. The house is a couple of minutes from Ecola Park which has nice hiking trails. It is in a very nice and convenient location.
We had no complaints or problems during our 5 day stay. The only two negative issues I can think of is that the house is located at a public beach entrance and many cars with surfers park all over the place on both sides of the street all the time. When they come back from surfing, they change from their wetsuits into dry clothes in the street, something which may not be very appealing to some people. It is a very active location with many surfers. The second issue is that there is one TV in the living room which is pretty small. They should have a larger TV to watch a movie at night. But we didn’t watch much TV. Overall, this is a great place to stay.
Jordan H.Oct 2018
Amazing home with the perfect quiet location across from Chapman Beach. We explored all around Cannon Beach and felt lucky to have landed such a great place. Will definitely return!
Laura H.Oct 2018
The coast is right out your window, and the ocean is just a short walk away. It felt almost like a private beach with Haystack Rock, tidepools and Ecola State Park all within walking distance. The cottage met our every need.
Lisa O.Sep 2018
Cute place, easy access to amazing beach. House was clean with everything needed, with the exception of firewood. We had amazing weather so the road was quite crowded with parked cars most of the time but for the most part everyone was friendly and respectful. We would stay here again for sure.
Daniel D.Sep 2018
Audrey K.Sep 2018
Mary Jane W.Sep 2018
It had been five years since we stayed at Chapman Cottage. It was great to be back; it’s cozy, comfortable and charming. The location is perfect for us, within walking distance to town, or just a short drive. And the view is gorgeous, no matter the time of day or weather. We will be back!
chris s.Aug 2018
Richard B.Aug 2018
Very clean, cozy, completely equipped, perfectly situated at the secluded north end of Chapman beach, with the beach just seconds away. I have seen many guest houses all around the world, and this is my favourite.
Randolph M.Aug 2018
The dunes, the cliffs, the trees, the birds
Patricia G.Aug 2018
The house had a great view from the living room window of people parking on the street in front and getting out their surfboards.
Terry W.Jul 2018
The house was cozy, clean and had everything we needed. The view from the living and front bedroom was wonderful. We enjoyed the very short walk down to the beach. Loved the less crowded ( north) part of beach.
We enjoyed our stay and hope to be back next year.
Scott L.Jul 2018
Excellent location. Stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed using beach right off front porch.
Lisa M.Jul 2018
Chapman Cottage is in a beautiful location, very close to the beach. You can see the ocean from the living room. Chapman Beach is a treasure. It is not crowded and is amazing at low tide. You can walk all the way around Chapman Point and to Crescent Beach and Indian Point. Incredible tide pools!
The house was perfect for our family of five. My husband and I used one bedroom, our boys shared a room with a twin bed and twin trundle, and our daughter slept on the sofa. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need and the washing machine and dryer were so nice to have!
Kathleen M.May 2018
This lovely ocean view home is walking distance to the great shops and restaurants of charming Cannon Beach but on the more quiet north end of town, across the street from Chapman Point beach. The hosts generously provide many extras to make your visit special and we enjoyed cooking in the lovely kitchen during our stay. The two rooms with a queen bed in one and a trundle bed in the other was perfect for our party of three. There is also a pull out couch bed in the living room. If you want easy beach access, enjoy avoiding crowds and still want to be able to easily walk into town, this is the idea house for you.
Hari Dass K.May 2018
Nice spot. Just far enough from the center of town. Just across from the beach. We had a lovely time
Sylvia Ann F.Apr 2018
Very clean and a perfect beach location.
Sandra B.Apr 2018
This is a well-furnished, cozy place close to the water in a very quiet neighborhood. Ideal for a couple or small family.
Judith S.Mar 2018
My husband, daughter and I just spent four days at Chapman Cottage an absolutely loved it. The cottage is very comfortably furnished with an absolutely breath taking view of the ocean. We walked and explored the beach daily, walked to and from town, and spent time at Ecola State Park which is just a short drive away. The staff was very responsive when we called with one small glitch. The cottage was immaculate and just as described.
Kimberly P.Feb 2018
Ocean waves and sounds from the front porch and front picture window.
Old school brick wood-burning fireplace and hardwoods lends itself to a cozy reset for those needing to be refreshed and read, knot, paint, write or stroll the hills of parks and cottages or a run down through the adorable Cannon Beach.
Sand dollars galore on the beach just down through the trail steps away from the brick/rock drive...
Vaulted kitchen nook and Master opens up the cottage to feel make it feel more open..
Salam L.Sep 2017
It's a street away w great ocean view. Very quiet cozy place. Heat and hot water perfect! Got to use the fireplace and it made for nice evenings overlooking Ocean. Rooms are small but plenty of cots and blankets. Well stocked kitchen. Would totally stay here again!
Agustin E.Jul 2017
Having vacationed in Cannon Beach for 2 decades, I thought I was familiar with all parts of the city - the main street, north part of town near the estuary, the presidential streets, south end, Tolovona - but I had never stayed at the far north of town just before Ecola. This house is located in that neighborhood and it is unbelievable - though it is still a public beach, it is effectively private given the estuary of the river and on the other side of Chapman point is a tidepool area filled with starfish, anemones, mussels, etc. It is really incredible that there is a rental property fronting the Pacific Ocean.
Colin C.Jul 2017
This was a great, clean, cute house directly across from the beach. Not one house between you and the beach. The neighborhood is beautiful. The view is great, the short walk through the dunes to the beach was even better.
Lisa S.Jun 2017
For the price, this is house is over valued. It's tired and uninspiring, but the views helped to make up for it. Also for the price, we would prefer to spend this much money to stay at the Stephanie Inn and have a top notch facility. (Stephanie Inn was full.)
Scott W.Jun 2017
This was our first visit to Cannon Beach and it was spectacular. We really enjoyed being close to the beach, and were happy to be on the north end where the beach was much quieter. Also very close to Ecola State Park which was fantastic.
Damon M.Jun 2017
Always a nice relaxing time yet there is never enough time to see it all. Already planning a trip back...
Martha L.May 2017
The location of this cottage is perfect. Views of ocean from living room, access to beach directly across the street and very close to Ecola State Park. Town is a short walk.
John A.May 2017
My wife and I with our son and grandson spent 2 nights at this great location with a tremendous view. We dinned in 1 evening with our son cooking a great meal of fresh caught salmon that we purchased at the fish market in town with the adequate supply of cookware and place settings . If you would like a relaxing meal with nice atmosphere we recommend Pelican Brewing on S. Hemlock downtown Cannon Beach. Our grandson loved the paths through the beach dunes right out front the cottage!
CREIG K.May 2017
Ocean view and beach access is great. Plus, the beach at this location is very pleasant. Whale spouts were visible one afternoon from the cabin.
Lyn E.Apr 2017
Although pretty, the photos really don't capture the beautiful views from this home. (The beach and sea is much closer than it looks .) We loved watching the sea from the living room - just breathtaking! Close proximity to what felt like a private beach, yet within walking distance to Cannon Beach and the shops - so the best of both worlds. Ecola State Park is near by offering many different hikes and beaches also. The home was quite comfortable and has all one needs, suited our family of 4 very well. It really is a fabulous location! We loved every minute of our vacation 😄
Karen L.Mar 2017
Would have liked firewood provided for the fireplace. . .
Tony F.Mar 2017
My husband and i spent the month of February at Chapman Cottage and loved every minute of it. The view from the cottage is amazing! We had rain, snow, windy days, sunshine and many beautiful sunsets. Michael the manager was very helpful with anything we needed. We will be back!
Evan B.Dec 2016
Well equipped, cozy property with open fire. Opposite the beach and close to great hiking. We really enjoyed our stay.
Valerie P.Dec 2016
With the beach right across the street, the house cannot be beat!
The housekeepers do a grand job of cleaning, which is very important to me.
The art posters are a nice touch.
My friend said, it just had a homey feel.
David C.Nov 2016
This is a great property! Cozy and clean! Access to beach and proximity to Ecola, Haystack and downtown Cannon Beach can't be matched for the price! Tremendous value.
Valerie P.Nov 2016
The location can't be beat. It was close to town, which is filled with restaurants and shops. The view was wonderful. You can sit in the living room or on the front porch to watch the ocean. It was right on a path to the beach, which was an easy walk,without stairs. The back deck was very large, and had a big table and bbq for sunny, warm day entertaining.
Graham C.Oct 2016
Comfortable cabin with a fireplace and a great view of the beach. Great location - feels remote, but close enough to pop into Cannon Beach for dinner. I would recommend to my friends.
Kristy B.Oct 2016
The beach is literally right outside the front door. It was amazing to listen to the ocean waves every night. Friendly neighbors, quiet, peaceful atmosphere. Great for a relaxing family vacation.
Amanda C.Oct 2016
This cottage was perfect for my boyfriend and I. We were able to walk right onto the beach and experience a most wonderful sunset. And even when we didn't leave the cottage, we were still able to watch the sunset and listen to the sound of the ocean straight from the living room.
We had a wonderful stay!
Peter K.Sep 2016
We loved the neighborhood, but won't likely go back to the house, which needs some TLC and investment in freshening up to make it worth the price point.
James L.Aug 2016
Nice property, we situated to the beach. Only one full size bed in the house.
Dara H.Jul 2016
Best location and beach in Cannon Beach -- was an amazing trip!
Honor S.Jul 2016
Staying north of Cannon Beach was perfect. The beach was lovely and much quieter than around CB. The house had a beautiful view of the ocean and a short hike down to the beach. It was a functional size and close to town. We had a wonderful time
Bruce J.Jul 2016
Doug H.Jul 2016
We had a great weekend in Cannon Beach! The home is cozy with a nice ocean view. A few minutes walk puts you on a quiet beach with fantastic Oregon coast views.
We will definitely stay here again.
Sozila N.Jul 2016
We had a wonderful stay. We could see the beach from our window. We almost had the beach to ourselves. We really liked the furnishings and the décor. The kitchen was well equipped. We would definitely stay there again.
Debra T.Jun 2016
We had a great time at the beach, thank you.
Jerzy T.May 2016
The master bedroom is great. The view is beautiful. The pull -out sofa in the living room is comfortable. However, the second bedroom is EXTREMELY tiny. So, it is a perfect place for four or less people.
Nathan H.May 2016
Quiet place outside main Cannon Beach. Great location
Vincent H.May 2016
Minutes from the beach and downtown. Very comfortable and quiet. We really enjoyed our stay.
David P.May 2016
Amy L.Apr 2016
The location and house is the perfect get away. It is just far enough away from the crowds at Cannon Beach Proper yet close enough to walk or engage in shopping. The beach right in front of the house is quiet and less crowded than a little further south. I enjoyed my morning coffee just sitting on the front deck and listening to the ocean and enjoying the view. The home is clean, comfortable and everything needed for a relaxing stay at the beach. We will definitely return.
Simon C.Apr 2016
The cottage on Chapman Beach was a great place to stay right on the beach. The bedroom for two was a little small but the cottage is in good shape and clean. The cable tv had plenty of channels. Kitchen had all the utensils that were needed. The beach is quieter than the Cannon beach side.
Patricia K.Apr 2016
This is an excellent property for a couple or small family. We loved the close proximity to the beach and to town. We took advantage of the fireplace and the front porch and spent 2 wonderful days just relaxing. We will definitely return to this property and highly recommend it to anyone looking for something cozy and quaint at Cannon Beach. Really nice neighborhood.
Renne H.Apr 2016
Beautiful Location. Very comfortable
Hailey H.Mar 2016
Would stay again
Anne C.Mar 2016
My husband proposed to me on Chapman Beach 17 years ago. We've been looking for a rental in that area since, and were thrilled to find Chapman Cottage with an ocean view no less! Very nice cottage, quiet area, and walking distance to the shops and restaurants. Also right next to Ecola Park with trails to an even more private beach.
Amy H.Mar 2016
The only thing negative I can say is our trip was too short! We loved the house and its location. Cannon Beach is a great place to visit!
Nancy L.Mar 2016
We have come to this cottage for years. We love it.
Julie G.Feb 2016
This is such a cute cottage and a really fabulous location. Chapman Beach is quiet, peaceful and beautiful. The house was in excellent shape, minus the much too old mattresses and very bad pillows. If the mattresses get a much needed upgrade, you can't go wrong staying at Chapman Cottage.
Thank you for your review and your suggestion regarding the mattresses and pillows. We will advise the owner so they can take it under consideration. We hope to see you again!
Jodi R.Jan 2016
Everyone goes to The Beach with different goals but relaxing and unwinding are often a part of it. Our small group of girl friends was there to celebrate a special birthday. The Chapman Cottage has a great location, the front view is toward the ocean, the back has a hillside and trees. The entire rental process was handled very professionally and with good service. A clean cottage with plenty of supplies lends a feeling of welcoming hospitality. It is a cottage and the "sleeps six" is accurate but should be taken in light of who's in your group. A party of four adults was just right for us. We would go back and have already talked about it.
Debra M.Oct 2015
We booked this home for a girls' weekend and it's a lovely location. It's away from the crowds at Cannon Beach and we were treated to some great views: a herd of elk, deer, beautiful ocean and surfers taking advantage of a big wave break. The home is small but comfortable and has a nice back deck area for outdoor dining, with views to the hills. The front deck is tiny but will accommodate a couple of chairs for ocean watching.
The only downside to this home are the sleeping arrangements. The master bedroom has a comfortable bed and private bath but the 2nd bedroom only has a trundle bed and it's small. This home probably wouldn't work for couples wanting to share it. My girlfriend barely fit on the trundle bed. And being taller than her, I would not have fit at all. Anyone taller than 5'4" wouldn't be able to sleep on the trundle bed. There's a sofa sleeper but there is NO privacy if you choose that sleeping option.
It's a short walk into town and the new coffee/antique store just as you cross the bridge is worth stopping in for a delicious specialty coffee drink (pumpkin lattes were astonishingly good). The owners are lovely too! We also hiked to Ecola Park and then found a shortcut back down to the property. One day we were greeted by a herd of elk on the beach path and quietly found another way to get to the house. They are beautiful creatures but BIG! We chatted with surfers heading out to the waves and sat on the bench across from the house with glasses of wine and truly enjoyed the peace and serenity of this location.
The owners should consider a wall bed or something that offers a better 2nd bedroom sleeping option, but other than that, this place is a gem!
Portland girls at the beach!
George M.Oct 2015
I am guessing the home is about 30 years old and has never been updated. Although public access to beach was convenient, it also caused excessive foot and car traffic in front of property.
Sarah E.Sep 2015
The cottage is older and small compared to the huge houses all around, but a wonderful refuge- comfortably slept our group of 5 adults. Unbeatable view of the ocean from the living room and a nearly private beach just across the street! Cozy fireplace and comfortable appointments. Overall, we had a lovely stay. Really appreciated the washer/dryer too!
Rebecca S.Aug 2015
We had a great time! The house was clean, close to the beach, had great views and everything we needed.
Denise D.Jul 2015
The cottage was lovely! Beach access was just steps from the front door. The shopping was amazing. It always is at Cannon Beach though. The accommodations were perfect for 6 people. It was a girl's weekend of relaxing and getting to know one another better. We'd definitely rent it again.
ROBYN M.Jul 2015
Vacationed here with my son and my 6-yr-old granddaughter and 10-yr-old grandsons. House was perfect for us and the beach across from the house was the perfect play site for the kids to boogie boards, explore tide pools, build sand castles, etc. Deck out back provided a private, peaceful setting for meals. Would definitely rent here again.
Matt A.Jul 2015
While the home isn't the biggest in the Chapman Point area, it's perfectly situated to give access a delightful stretch of beach away from the crowds of downtown Cannon Beach/Haystack Rock. These are easily accessible by car or a moderate walk, but we felt that it was perfect for us: peaceful, pretty, and near enough.
