Falcon Cove house description

Enjoy a retreat at the beautiful northern Oregon coast. Surrounded by Oswald West State Park, Falcon Cove is a hide-a-way with an elk herd, coyote, falcons and eagles. The house is five years old and tastefully decorated with vintage furniture, original art, wool carpets and a spiral stair. Tucked into the forest, it has a view of the ocean less than 3 blocks away. Open windows to hear the sound of waves! Beach Access is an easy few minutes walk by road or on a private trail through the woods.

We consider this our personal retreat. The house was designed for multi-generational use. It has a great living/dining room with lots of windows and an open kitchen. Modern woodstove with visible fire in living room (wood is provided). Sleep on the extra large window seats and wake to a view of the forest! Master Bedroom, two bathrooms and laundry on main floor. A spiral stair leads to a large loft with skylights with views of trees and stars. The basement holds a ping-pong table and a fold out couch, the TV, and more windows. It is a wonderful place to be alone or share with your family. Lots of toys and a super swing outside for children of all ages!

In order to really enjoy the coast, we have chosen NOT to have internet, phone or cable. Instead, this is a real retreat. Hike through Old Growth Douglas Fir to watch for whales on Cape Falcon, walk the volatile rocky beach, catch the sand at low tide and search for mussels. Look for birds and elk. Falcon Cove is near Short Sands Beach which has the best surfing in the area. Go clamming and crabbing nearby. Manzanita and Cannon Beach both have shops to explore. Kayak in nearby Nehalem Bay or hike to the top of Neahkahnie Mountain. Take a vacation!

If it is raining, play games or ping pong, cook food, make magnetic poetry, enjoy the movie selections. Snuggle next to the wood stove with a glass of wine, read a book, do yoga, dance...
Relax! Breathe. This is the Oregon Coast.

In case you have allergies, this house is dog friendly! The house is currently For Sale, so we are not renting as much and not booking too far in advance. Thanks for your understanding!

                        We loved our stay at this home! Barbara was so easy to work with, and this place is the perfect type of get-away. All the modern amenities, yet still a bit rustic, as a cabin in the woods should be. The 2nd bath is off the mudroom, with the sink in the mudroom, but that worked just fine for us. It was a great back to nature experience with all the open windowns letting in the early morning light -- a natural alarm clock! The cool temps, the wind in the trees with the ocean waves in the background made reading on the deck the perfect R&R spot. Our last morning there we had a herd of elk just off the main deck -- which was a perfect beginning to our last hours in this home! We will come back to this place again someday!

                        Rain or shine, this is a delightful place to escape with family and friends. Open and airy, it's the perfect spot to chill out with lovely views of the surrounding woods from every window and a distant ocean view to the west. Stretch out and read or nap in the best window seat ever. Plug in your iPod, crank the tunes, and cook up a storm in the open kitchen – or let loose and dance in the wide open living-dining area. Linger on the west-facing decks to enjoy morning coffee and birdsong, soak up afternoon sunshine, or feast on an al fresco supper. (Vist the Friday evening farmers market in Manzanita for fresh local veggies, berries, cheeses and other ingredients...even buttery-crusted pie.) This home is very private, so no window coverings are needed. Take a sleeping mask if you don't want to awake at dawn. Our dogs had us up at 5 AM, ready to hit the trail! The nearby beach is very rocky, but long sandy walking beaches are just a short drive away. The seclusion and woodsy setting more than make up for the travel time to reach sand and sea. Check it out, relax and breathe!

                        I really enjoyed our stay at Falcon Cove. Usually when I go to the beach, I find myself renting cottages right on the water's edge. FC is set back in the woods - although there is a view of the water. I liked very much our sense of privacy in the woods - It was quieter and much more serene than usual for me. The house is very open and light. There are lovely walks from the house - however, it was difficult to walk down to the water's edge b/c of the large rocks. I drove over to Manzanita to do a long beach walk - but I was happy to return to our house in the woods!

                        Our family stayed here during the week of Independence Day. We loved the house and the proximity to the beach, hiking and area activities. Our pre-teen daughters enjoyed the tidal pools and searching for the perfect Sand Dollar as well as touring the Tillamook factory and renting Dune Buggies at Sand Lake. The house is well equipped and shows the owners' care and attention to detail. We felt fortunate to find a family's retreat that was available as a rental rather than an investment property for our vacation on the Oregon Coast.

                        My family of 4 (two kids) stayed here to celebrate an early Thanksgiving. Four more family members were down the street a little ways in a different house. We brought plenty to do knowing there was no cable tv or internet. Lots of games, but there were even already some there. We brought along the Wii which hooked up pretty easily to the tv on the lowest level. Played lots of ping pong. Had a blast feeding the beautiful wood burning stove to keep it nice and toasty. We prepared a big Thanksgiving meal in the kitchen and enjoyed this at the huge kitchen table that fit all 8 of us easily. It was a beautiful first trip for us to the Oregon coast!

                        This beach home was absolutely perfect for weekend away. The house is absolutely beautiful, clean, and the surroundings lovely. Great location for hiking and exploring and then coming home to read by the wood stove. We will definitely be coming back.

                        Thank you for sharing your wonderful home for a few days. We enjoyed every minute of the 70 (+ or -) degree weather, no wind, and great beach walking - plus we saw 3 elk!

                        We loved staying at your place last weekend, the memory of how peaceful, comfortable and open your home is has carried me all through the week. We love all the windows. We love looking up into the forest in hopes of seeing elk. We played music and drank wine and ate and played cribbage and watched the fire and the rain. When the weather cleared, we went to the beach and made rock sculptures. The quality of light in this house is remarkable and we love being wrapped in wood in the woods near the sea. Thank you.

                      Why the Owner Chose Falcon Cove:
                      We have owned this property for years and just recently built this house. Falcon Cove is so wild and private. It is a special place.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Privacy; quiet; a warm, cozy, beautiful home nestled in the woods; elk passing by, ferns that almost tower over you, eagles and ravens and owls in the trees, stars at night, the sounds of frogs and waves, did I say privacy?
