About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Octagonal log home provides a unique coastal experience. Set in a wooded neighborhood the home feels like your own private tree house. On cold days relax in front of the gas fireplace and play a board game. On sunny days the activities are endless. In the evenings, enjoy a BBQ on the large deck and listen to the wind in the pines. The open floor plan of the upstairs encourages family time. Both bedrooms are downstairs on the ground floor with the bathroom and laundry.

This home is located just minutes away from the incredible seven miles of Manzanita beach, Nehalem Bay State Park, and the quaint town of Manzanita and Nehalem. Enjoy kiteboarding in Manzanita, surfing at Oswald West or trail running up Neahkahnie Mountain. If relaxation is your idea of vacation you can visit the spa in Manzanita, browse antique shops, walk the beach or drink coffee at one of the local coffee shops. Like to fish? Wheeler Marina is a few minutes down the road with boats and crab pots to rent. At low tide walk along Nehalem Bay to dig for clams.

About The Owner

We are 40 somethings who live full time in Hood River, Oregon. We are self employed and run a small video production company and run kids adventure camps in the Columbia Gorge. When we aren't working we take our daughter to the beach where we unwind, surf and eat cinnamon buns at Bread and Ocean. We feel fortunate to live and vacation in such beautiful places. While in Hood River we grow our own food, run our cars on vegetable oil and do what we can to live a simpler life.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2008

Why The Owner chose Coastal Oregon

We had a dream to own a log cabin one day. When we moved to Oregon the log cabin dream turned into a tree house dream which turned into a yurt on the Oregon coast dream. We didn't plan on buying a house but when we saw our cabin we knew this was the place for us. It was a log cabin, treehouse, yurt all in one! We love the relaxed environment of the Manzanita area and prefer it to the more touristy areas on the coast.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy cooking big breakfasts in the cozy main room and taking morning runs on the Alder Creek Farm trail. Other mornings we'll go to Bread and Ocean for a tasty morning treat and head to Neahkanie Mountain to see what kind of mood the ocean is in. We love day trips down to Oswald West Park where we haul our daughter, our surfboards and snacks for a day at the beach. Oswald is our favorite beach to enjoy with our family. In the evenings we BBQ on the deck at the house and cuddle in front of the fire while we play games and read. We leave the cabin fully restored, rested and grateful.

Lovely, unique and relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I had a lovely stay! When we opened the door it was just as portrayed in the pictures and I was pleasantly surprised. I say that only because I read almost every review. The heating was great! Quaint electric fireplace, and good heat downstairs.

Because I read the reviews I brought my own hair dryer and towels. My only issue is that we had to launder towels. Hence bringing my own towels. But my partner used a hand towel in the kitchen and bathroom so we had to clean them. It was his birthday weekend so I was not too bummed especially since our plans were not tight because it was so rainy and sleety so we relaxed read and stayed warm. But for a stay less than 24 hours, laundering towels should be waived.

To the owners: maybe consider outside lighting down the stairwell. The light at the door does not illuminate the stairs when it is dark at night.

Overall, we had a lovely stay. Th location is only a 3 minute drive to town. We Relaxed upstairs by the "fire", slept well and felt safe! We will recommend to others as well as return the next time we find ourselves overnighting in manzanita!

Stay Upstairs

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in the upstairs portion of the house. The giant bean bag was great. Stove kept us very warm as did the many blankets. Easy to cook in the kitchen. Great location near the beach.

We did notice the downstairs had a moldy smell so we didn't sleep in the bed rooms.

Otherwise had a good time.

Owner's Response: Brian, We are so glad you enjoyed your time at the cabin and regret that you found the downstairs to have a moldy smell. We've checked into the smell you reported and we didn't notice a moldy smell. I am quite sensitive to mold and smells and have never detected mold in the house. I'm sorry it deterred you from staying downstairs but am glad you were able to be comfortable upstairs. Kind Regards, Lisa and Jeff

Great Place! Will Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

We were SO bummed we had to leave early! There was a horrible storm that came through town (including a small tornado in Manzanita) knocking the power out. If it were just my husband and myself, we'd have toughed it out, but we had our 3 year old and 1 year old with us and it was just too risky. That being said, this place is FANTASTIC. So comfortable, clean, close to town, the beach, loaded kitchen. I loved how easy it was to back the car in and unload everything into the downstairs where the bedrooms were. Owner (Lisa) was very responsive and very accommodating. We can't wait to return when the weather is better. This was just a bit of bad luck.
