Neskowin cabin description

NOTE TO ALL MY PAST GUESTS (thank you), and FUTURE GUESTS: I love every New Year, full of potential. I spend days planning and scheming about what I want to accomplish in the next 12 months. But this year I broke my pattern. I made time to come visit my own cabin. I am asking you to consider this - forget your running, hiking, yoga, acupuncture, massage, ibuprophen...whatever it is you do to relax. Plan a getaway. Plan it here. Do not bring your computer. You will find peace and quiet until your mind becomes mushy. Turn on the hot water in the claw foot tub, add bubbles, lean back and look up into the trees, the valley, the stars. Then put your feet up while sitting on the couch watching the sunset over the ocean. Stay as long as possible. You may find a place inside that will stay with you even when you get back to your world. Do this for yourself...

Listen to the quiet…
This year-round retreat is totally private with magnificent 180-degree views. A west and south-facing deck overlooks sunsets, the ocean and miles of forest. Newly built in 2011, we have furnished this cozy but contemporary 1 bedroom, 1 bath home as a comfy getaway. It is located 300 feet above the valley floor, with southern exposure. Three sides of windows and decks show off a view from many vantage points. It is likely the most elegant “tree house” you have ever seen.

This is the place where you will remember what peacefulness feels like. You may be so 'busy' looking out the windows while curled up on the couch, watching the morning sun peek though the trees, the sun set over the ocean, the moon coming through the skylight while soaking in the claw foot tub, star gazing from bed....that you never quite make it down to the beach. (Although it is only a 5-minute drive.) Make the Green Flash Cabin your destination for Savoring Silence.

Sunset Magazine recommended our cabin as one of three best places to stay along the gorgeous Oregon Coast...in the September 2012 edition, 'The Call of the Oregon Coast.'

TWO-PERSON MAXIMUM, NO EXCEPTIONS. Keep in mind that the location of this cabin is one mile east of Hwy 101, sitting up high along a valley that has few residents. It has a one-lane gravel road that used to be a logging road - it cannot be found by GPS. If this sounds too remote for you, then you may want to be closer in to town. But if it sounds appealing, it is honestly just fantastic. It is two miles to the beach.

This is a retreat destination, without the ammenities of a microwave, WiFi or cable TV (although 3G access is very good). The large soaking tub with a side-mounted faucet has a flexible head for 'showering' while in the tub, but does NOT have a stand-up shower head or surround. We have a state-of-the-art stove, with touch-sensor commands. In addition, there is a dishwasher, electric coffee maker and toaster, plus plenty of dishes. While in the kitchen you are surrounded by views of miles of unspoiled wilderness.

The 'Green Flash' is an atmospheric phenomenon that, when the conditions are just right, you will actually see a very bright lime green flash - similar to a light bulb flash - right at the moment when the sun drops below the horizon at sunset. I have seen this only once during my time at the coast. It was truly memorable...

Just a 5-minute drive to the village of Neskowin, you’ll be far from the beach shops and boardwalks of larger beach towns. In Neskowin you will find one golf course, one grocery store, one art gallery and one wonderful café – the only commercial businesses. Enjoy 7 miles of gorgeous beach walking, evening bonfires, surfing, skim boarding and tide pool exploring. Within a beautiful 10-mile drive is Pacific City, where there are numerous fun shops, galleries, restaurants, a surf shop, another wide and walkable beach, plus the tide pools and hiking of unique Cape Kiwanda.

This beautiful part of the north/central Oregon Coast is just a two-hour drive southwest of Portland, between Lincoln City and Pacific City, north of Cascade Head.

Check out Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, a most wonderful facility located along the south side of Cascade Head. They offer a wide array of classes and workshops all summer. (about a 7- mile drive)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: After living in Neskowin for 13 years, I moved to Portland with my family in 1991. I am a silversmith who handcrafts jewelry, and also manages several vacation rentals in addition to my own. I love my job, gardening, kayaking, biking, hiking, spending time with my dog, and taking off for a few days at the coast.

Why the Owner Chose Neskowin:
Neskowin is a small, special place that has changed little in the 30 years since I lived in and now visit the area. It is quaint, friendly, relaxed, has headlands, a long beach, eagles, majestic forests, hiking trails....everything you would want in a coast village.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Time, quiet, privacy, beauty, nature, peace, sunsets, tidepools, elk, deer, eagles, reading on the deck, dozing on the couch, walking on the beach. Time, quiet, privacy. It is a 5-minute drive to the beach and village where there is one cafe, one small store, and access to the beach. Keep your eyes peeled for seals in the surf and sand dollars on the beach. I even found a whale vertebrae in the sand a few years ago!
