Seal Rock cottage description

The Gullhouse nestles in a secluded, intimate spot, rare on the popular Oregon Coast. The road ends in our driveway. Our guests love sitting in the hot tub (no neighbors other than the seals:) and watching the gulls, pelicans, bald eagles and magnificent gray whales, migrating 12,000 miles from Alaska to Baja and back. Many engagement, honeymoon and anniversary celebrations take place at the Gullhouse.

FEATURES

You will marvel at this astounding ocean view from the living room sofa, the ocean bedroom and even the kitchen. At low tide you can see with your naked eye, orange and purple sea stars clinging to the exposed rocks, and a dozen seals resting on the rocks. You don't have to leave the Gullhouse to experience the beauty of the Oregon Coast and many of our guests don't!

THE HOUSE
Tastefully furnished and decorated with coastal charm, you will find the Gullhouse to be spotless, comfortable and quiet, perfect for enjoying the serenity of the nature around you. The home is equipped with every modern amenity, including a large deck, ocean view hot tub and a kitchen that will serve every cook's need. (One of our recent guests hosts a TV cooking show, and even HE was happy with what he found!) There are binoculars, a spotting scope and bird & marine life identification books for your use. Each bedroom is comfortable for couples with king beds, the master has an adjoining bath, and the ocean-side bedroom offers a lovely view of the sea and starlit sky.

A Note About Motorcycles:

The road ends in our driveway and offers spectacular privacy, but about 3 blocks away, the road becomes gravel. There is a significant hill into our block. In addition, we do not have either a carport or a garage where your vehicle can be parked.

          Seal Rock is an unincorporated coastal community in Lincoln County, Oregon, United States, between Newport and Waldport on U.S. Route 101.

          Seal Rock State Wayside (across the street) has large off-shore rock formations which are the habitat of seals, sea lions, sea birds and other marine life. The wayside includes interesting tidepools as well as excellent ocean views and a sandy beach. Developed for day-use, the picnic area is in a pleasant stand of shore pine, spruce and salal. Or you can picnic on the deck at the Gullhouse, and enjoy the splendid view from the privacy of your own deck.

          The outstanding Newport Aquarium and Hatfield Marine Science Center area within a 15 minute drive.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2000

          About the owner: Rob and I originally bought the Gullhouse for our family vacations. We started renting it to co-workers at the VA Hospital; friends and family. The response was overwhelming, and we found that we really enjoyed sharing this incredible place. When Rob retired, we decided to rent it professionally, and he got his 'committee' together to help. They built the patio, installed the hot tub, replaced and cut in new windows. The deck was torn down and rebuilt, the foundation and underpinnings supported, even the plumbing was replaced! We all worked, and we all loved our special place. We have many Fathers Day Crab Feeds with our kids after a day out on Uncle Doug's boat in the Bay. Our middle son proposed to his wife on the beach in front of our house. Our oldest son and his wife honeymooned at the Gullhouse. Our daughter chooses to take her boyfriend here every chance she gets. Rob and I have had many lovely times for our own special Valentine's Days and anniversaries. The Gullhouse is well-loved by our entire family and friends. Our friendships grow every day, with every booking; our guests are always the kind of people that we enjoy and appreciate, even though we may only meet on-line!

          Why the Owner Chose Seal Rock:
          The view is simply, completely and utterly outstanding.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          The Gullhouse has a better view and is closer to the ocean than many oceanfront properties. When my mom (Debi, here) was ill and she couldn't go onto the beach, she could still see us from the living room couch, and without using the binoculars, even examine the starfish on the rocks. There is one particular flat rock that the seals will climb onto at the change of tide. Even though Mom has been gone over 10 years, we still lovingly call that rock 'Grandmom's Rock'. Another attribute not to be taken for granted is the feeling of sitting in the hot tub, sparkling stars overhead, a magnificent sunset on the horizon and the sights and sounds of the ever-changing, crashing surf. My personal choice of a meditation spot in the morning and for quiet conversation and a cocktail in the evening sunset.
