Property description

“The Vicarage” is one of the most unique and charming homes on the North Oregon Coast. Our lovingly remodeled and furnished half-timbered English cottage has 2 full bedrooms with queen beds, 1 additional room with a trundle bed perfect for children, 2 full baths (1 with tile shower and the other with a luxurious vintage claw-foot tub), a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with adjoining breakfast nook, a dining room, and a cozy living room with inviting woodstove.

Nestled below majestic Neahkahnie Mountain just north of Manzanita, “The Vicarage” is a tranquil romantic retreat at any time of year – whether relaxing in front of the woodstove on a chilly winter evening or enjoying afternoon tea or an aperitif in the sunny courtyard amidst the beautiful English garden in the summer.

'The Vicarage'! It's our home. We invite you to come and enjoy it and the beauty of our lovely North Oregon Coast!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are Paul and Mary: an Episcopal priest (retired vicar of the church in Manzanita, hence 'The Vicarage') and a retired independent school teacher. Since 2000 we have divided our time between 'The Vicarage' and our townhouse in the Portland area, both of which we share with our Smooth Fox Terrier Noelle. We love to travel and have made many trips to Europe for hiking, cross country skiing, and now for researching books we are writing. We also love to cook (and eat) and invite you to take full advantage of 'The Vicarage's' amply equipped gourmet kitchen, cozy breakfast nook, and country dining room.

Why the Owner Chose Manzanita:
We bought The Vicarage in 2000. After exploring many different communities on the North Oregon Coast we chose Manzanita for its understated elegance, its numerous working artists, its exquisite long beach stretching from Neahkahnie Mtn to the mouth the Nehalem River, and the many other beaches, parks and attractions in the area just waiting to be explored. We chose our house because, quite frankly, we fell in love with it, as we are sure you will too. Adding to it, making its garden, living in its unique charm has been a labor of love.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Vicarage is located only a short walk to Manzanita beach in a tranquil and sunny location sheltered by imposing Neahkahnie Mtn. Manzanita village with its unique shops and restaurants is close by as are the antique shops of Nehalem and Wheeler and the ever-popular Cannon Beach. Manzanita also boasts an excellent 9-hole golf course. Nehalem Bay State Park with trails for hiking and biking is a gem, as is Oswald West State Park and Short Sands Beach only a short drive north. Climbing Neahkahnie Mtn is a challenging hike that rewards the intrepid with spectacular views. For us (and our children and grandchildren who are frequent visitors) it's the beach we believe is the most beautiful on the North Oregon Coast that continually draws us here. And, as dog lovers, we love it for being perhaps the most dog-friendly beach in Oregon. Just ask our terrier Noelle. She'll tell you, 'Let's go to the beach!'
