Seaview house description

This small studio cottage has charm, character and offers plenty of enchantment for one or two guests. Whether you're looking for a solitary artist's retreat or a romantic getaway for two, this cozy little spot by the Washington Coast is a great choice!

Walking inside, you're greeted with a tastefully decorated space, embellished with antiques and stylish touches throughout. The queen-sized brass bed has a lovely heirloom-quality quilt, bedside tables, and lamps with beautiful glass shades. There is also a small sitting area and a full bath. This home will comfortably sleep two guests.

The basic but functional kitchen has a refrigerator, stovetop, microwave, and coffee grinder, so bring those fresh-roasted beans! Breakfasts, lunches, and dinners are a snap to prepare in this space and, although there is not a dishwasher, you'll find yourself creating delicious meals just the same. The cottage also has a TV with DVD and VCR, as well as a stereo and CD player, so you can watch your favorite movie or listen to music as you cook each night.

Outside there is a patio, garden, and a tranquil pond. Have a quiet moment with your morning coffee while you enjoy the fresh morning air. Beyond the nicely-landscaped yard, the town of Seaview, situated right on the southern end of the beautiful Long Beach peninsula, has almost 30 miles of beaches and numerous seaside towns to explore. From the cottage, it's only a few blocks to the shore, where you can hunt for shells, fly a kite, or spread out for a picnic on the sand.

The nearby Long Beach Boardwalk stretches out for about a half a mile and has picnic spots, interpretive exhibits and panoramic views. Just to the south sit hiking trails and the beautiful lighthouse at Cape Disappointment State Park, while Ledbetter Point State Park is on the northern tip of the peninsula for a lovely day trip.

Back down in Long Beach, a special dinner is only a short four block walk to Depot Restaurant: perhaps New York steak crusted with fig jam and Gorgonzola, prepared by a James Beard Foundation award-winning chef? If you crave more laid-back fare, the excellent Fort George Brewery is less than 20 miles south in ultra-charming Astoria, just across the impressive Astoria-Megler steel truss bridge crossing the Columbia River.

If you want the perfect getaway to escape the city for the peninsula, and the calm of a stroll along the beach, then Hummingbird Cottage is your place on the Discovery Coast!

                        Hummingbird cottage was perfect for the two of us. The bed was comfortable, the table and chair space was perfect for the two of us to watch a laptop movie. The Long beach area was great to explore from Hummingbird and the oysters from old Oysterville were the best we have ever had cooked up in the cottage kitchen. A perfect end to a great day exploring this area! The Hummingbird was well equipped and easily accessible.

                        Recommended for: Tourists without a car, age 55+, people with disabilities, sightseeing, romantic getaway, adventure seekers.

                        Owner response: Thankful that your stay at Hummingbird Cottage met your expectations and grateful that you stayed with us. I appreciate the support and the good feelings left behind. Come back and stay with us any time.

                        I stayed here over Christmas with my boyfriend. It was perfect! The cottage is small but has all you need. We cooked a couple nights in the cottage and had a picnic in bed. There is a table with two chairs that we used once. They kitchen has all you need. The cottage is very cozy. A couple nights we snuggled up in bed and watched a movie. Even it being Christmas the town had things to offer. My boyfriend had a massage at The Adrift Hotel. We went to Long Beach Tavern to play a game of pool and had some bar food. Great dive bar. Visited Astoria a couple times. We will definitely be back in the summer. Bring our bikes and do some day hikes. Terry the owner is super sweet and is available right away. Highly recommend this to a couple who are just looking for a little affordable getaway.

                        Though my Mother and I stayed in the Farmhouse... a review I am about to write as well, we were able to enter the Hummingbird Cottage, by permission of one of the owners to see for future rentals. This is the sweetest cottage, with bathroom, kitchen and studio bedroom/living room. It has everything you would need and is enchanting at the very least. Adorned in antique interiors, befitting to the cottage itself, with collectible quilts and brass bed, it's a must. What my Mother thought immediately, was a family retreat or business retreat.... it is across a brick patio walk from the Farmhouse and is the perfect addition for overflow if needed when renting the farm house as well. Its just charming as the dickens.... can't imagine anyone not enjoying the cottage and the lovely landscaped yard off the deck.

                        Recommended for: Age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, people with disabilities, sightseeing, romantic getaway, adventure seekers.

                        Owner response: Thank you for your view point of this cottage. Charming is the one word that describes it. The Farmhouse will sleep seven total and with this cottage on the same property you can add two more for a total of nine. Great for family reunions.

                        My wife and I stayed at this property in early September for 2 days and enjoyed it very much. It looks exactly like the photos provided, is very well maintained with a beautiful little garden of flowers, trees, bushes, grass, and fountain. There is a wonderful restaurant, the 42nd St Cafe, across the street with some of the most wonderfully prepared food I have ever tasted - some may consider a little pricey but well worth the splurge for anyone of the 3 meals it serves. For those who like well-proportioned breakfasts at reasonable prices try Laurie's Homestead on the same side of the street as the Hummingbird Cottage a few doors north. For places to visit there are, of course several "antique" shops within walking distance and of course all the busy shops and famous Kite Museum in Long Beach, one to 1.5 miles north of the cottage. We focused more on nature, history, and art by visiting both days the beautiful park at Cape Dissappointment where there are two lighthouses (the North one is the better of the two), a wonderfully informative Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, beautiful views of the mouth of the Columbia River, several beach and waterfront areas, and several sections of Maya Lin's Confluence Project (Maya Lin is the artist who also designed the famous Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Washington DC) that incorporate practical elements like a crab-cleaning station with carved quotes from Lewis and Clark's journals and from Native American statements and chants. I highly recommend the cottage, we met one of the owners before we left Seattle, he is a marvelous person who is very conscientous in providing an excellent place to stay at a very reasonable price.

                        I recently stayed at Hummingbird for the third time, and every experience has been enjoyable. Terry, the owner, is friendly and helpful and very easy to deal with. The cottage is quite small, but has a full bathroom and kitchen and is well-maintained and clean (and quite cute!). It is within easy walking distance of two great restaurants (the 42nd Cafe and the Depot), a full-size grocery store with two red boxes, and is only a few blocks from the Seaview beach approach. The rates are reasonable, especially during the off-season if you enjoy the beach during the stormier seasons (as I do). I have stayed at a couple of other similiarly priced accomodations in or near town and the Hummingbird is far superior. I would highly recommend the Hummingbird to any couple or single person planning a trip to Long Beach, WA.

                        Owner response: Thank you for the review and I appreciate repeat guests who come back to Hummingbird Cottage time and time again. It is very conveniently located and very quiet. The Farmhouse Cottage is in front for those who like more space. Welcome home.

                        The photos are a nice depiction, however, you have to see & feel the charm this property has to offer. Very nicely appointed, clean & well maintained inside & out. From the very fist contact I had with the owner & all through the reservation process, the owner was helpful & very cordial. I will stay there, again, & I have already recommended the cottage to friends & family. We had a fabulous dinner @ The Depot, Brunch @ 42nd St Cafe & took a trip to Oysterville & enjoyed a bottle of wine on the deck with lovely view of the mainland, not to mention Baked Alaska in Astoria, & the Farmers Market in Ilwaco & Astoria. Each day we enjoyed coming back to our home away from home: The Hummingbird Cottage. Thank you!

                        Owner response: Thank you Barbara for a lovely review. It is greatly appreciated. We also love the charm of the Hummingbird as well as the full house in front, called The Farmhouse Cottage. Both cottages are enjoyed by all who have stayed and we have many repeat guests. I look forward to helping you and your referrals anytime that it is called upon. Terry
