About Dwight Thompson

I am a licensed social worker and retired Army Colonel. My wife is a Financial Advisor. We live in the Seattle area and frequent Cannon Beach. We both have traveled extensively throughout the US and the World.

Dwight Thompson purchased this house in 1999

Why Dwight Thompson chose Cannon Beach

Our property is a cozy cottage that is right downtown in Cannon Beach. Walk a block to the beach or walk a block to downtown or walk 4 blocks to mid-town--- your choice! Our property is not the party destination yet it is a more than fun and comfortable setting and getaway for couples, small families and a small group of friends. That's what we use our cottage for and we hope you find it as fun and relaxing!

What makes this house unique

Let me tell you what's new in 2018 for the cottage! This year we have repainted the complete interior. We plan on installing a new hood over the stove for better venting. We have purchased new linens for the beds. All of the appliances recently replaced are working great.

Great getaway

Great Location - Great Price

  • 4 of 5

My family and I were glad we found this affordable rental in Cannon Beach. We especially enjoyed the proximity to the beach and the main shops of Cannon Beach. There was so much to see in a short walking distance. The house is a small one and I felt 4 people was a squeeze at times -- like while movie watching or keeping busy inside to avoid a rain storm. Clean-up didn't take long and was worth avoiding the cleaning fee of other rentals.

As pictured, close to downtown and neighbors, heat works good, nice bathroom, smelt bad

  • 3 of 5

From the pictures and description, I expected the house to be closer to the beach and not right next to two other houses - not very much privacy but the neighbor was nice. If you like being a block away from downtown, this is perfect. The inside of the house is as pictured and the gentleman you can call with any troubles that lives in town is very nice. The animal pee smell was very potent and it didn’t feel like a beach house with the decorations being inconsistent. I don’t think anyone goes to the house between renters due to the smell, outrageous cleaning list and items left by previous renters. The price does not parallel with the quality and renters having to do all the cleaning. We left the house looking better than when we arrived and I still haven’t received my $100 refundable deposit - it’s been almost 2 weeks which is not consistent with all the other homes I’ve rented. The heat does work very well! It was freezing when we got there and heated up quick. The bathroom is the nicest room in the house. We liked how bright and updated it was.

Small cottage, prime location, expectations well laid out!

  • 4 of 5

This little cottage is in prime location for cruising downtown Cannon Beach, hitting the beach, or relaxing with a movie. Everything that needed to be done was well laid out and we enjoyed our stay very much! Despite a slight "musky" smell the home is charming. Thanks Dwight!

Cannon Beach Cottage Review

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and inviting. Ideally located steps from downtown Cannon Beach and around the corner from sand and surf. Truly wonderful.

My family and I have traveled to the Northern Oregon Coast for vacation every year for more than 30 years. Cannon Beach is special to us because it is where I proposed to my wife and where we have celebrated our anniversary for many years. This year, for our 28th anniversary, we discovered the Cannon Beach Cottage. What a find.

The Cannon Beach Cottage is perfectly situated for us because it is so close to downtown Cannon Beach and the numerous restaurants, quaint shops, and bars that make Cannon Beach such a wonderful place. The beach itself is just up the hill and around the corner. Perfect.

The Cannon Beach Cottage is well appointed, has two nice bedrooms, a good kitchen, washer and dryer, and, my favorite, an awesome shower!

We couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more this year. A lot of that had to do with getting to stay at the affordable, clean, and comfortable Cannon Beach Cottage. We can't wait until our next visit.

Cannon Beach is one of the most popular beach destinations on the West Coast and is often rated in the top 10 by Sunset Magizine. It is only a 1 1/2 hour drive from Portland and just 4 hours from Seattle. Many people believe that Cannon Beach has one of the best ocean beaches and oceanfront communities in Oregon and the West Coast.

Haystack Rock, a giant monolith, is located just a short walk away. This rock draws thousands of tourists as it is home to starfish, sea urchins, sea birds, and many other sea life of the Oregon Coast.

The City of Cannon Beach is known for its art shops, local live theater and friendly atmosphere. Stroll down the main street and you will find many clothing and specialty shops. Excellent restaurants are just a stroll away featuring a full variety of foods from informal hamburger and pizza places to fine Northwest cuisine dining.

Seaside, just seven miles away, boasts an outlet mall, a

cineplex, and many shops and restaurants. The kids will enjoy the arcade and bumper cars located in heart of downtown Seaside. Mom and dad will enjoy the antique and specialty shops which are throughout the city.


Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Pet Fee $50 + Tax
Refundable damage deposit $100
Tax Rate 9.8%

No unauthorized pets of any kind including pets of your friends are allowed in the Cottage.
Guests must clean the cottage upon departure. Cleaning includes washing and drying of all linens and making the beds. It includes washing of all dishes and putting them away. I suggest that on the day of departure that you wash your bed sheets when you get up as this process is what takes the longest to complete. A cleaning checklist and supplies are provided. Check out time is 12 Noon. Check in time is 3 PM.

There is a damage deposit of $100 required. It is fully refundable as long as the property is left clean and undamaged. Damage that is charged would be that over and above what minor issues that could be expected. For instance, a broken dish or glass could be expected. A gash or hole in a door is not expected. If there is a problem please just call me and we will work out any issues. It is expected that you will leave the cottage as clean as you found it. If you find it not to your standards.... please call me immediately and will deal with it immediately.
Please email me your vehicle license plate number for my records as required by the city.

No refunds for cancellations within 30 days for all dates except July and August. For July and August there are NO refunds within 60 days. A fee of $25 is non-refundable for all other cancellations.
PAYPAL can be used otherwise I accept checks.
Damage Deposits are normally refunded within two weeks of departure.
PLEASE NOTE that I do not use the billing or checkout method. As stated above I accept mailed checks or PAYPAL invoice payments (there is a 3% transaction fee for PAYPAL). I do this because of the fees being charged to you and to me for billing, payment and check out. Dealing directly with me keeps both of our costs DOWN!
As you can see from my listing we have been doing this for over ten years and I believe you will find my system will work for you.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
