Some history of our property:
The Swenson Beachfront property has a unique history. Originally it was home to the famous York Fuchsia Gardens, in operation from the 1940's to 1960's. This flower nursery shipped over 1500 varieties of fuchsia throughout the USA. After closing in 1962, fuchsias, rhodies and shrubbery grew wild.
The Swenson family took ownership in 1988 and converted the property into our 'Garden of Weeden'. You can enjoy our heavily flowered grounds and create your own fresh flower arrangement. Feel free pull weeds too!

Doesn't get much better than this!
I have never written a review before but this cottage deserves one for sure. My wife, two Corgis and I spent three glorious days there in late November. The cottage is immaculate and perfect for a couple's getaway, although it could easily accommodate 2 couples or a small family. Although Hwy 101 is nearby you can't hear it due to the pounding surf just below the cottage. We were able to let the dogs out to do their duty without concern, as long as we followed to clean up after them. While many rentals on the coast require quite the downhill hike to get down to the beach ours was a brief minute at most. The beach was practically deserted due to the time of year and you can walk for miles. Great food in Newport minutes away. I highly recommend a place called Local Ocean. Can you tell we will return someday soon?

Owner response: THANK YOU CLYDE. OVER ONE THIRD OF OUR CLIENTS ARE REPEATS, AND WE ARE HAPPY TO HAVE YOU BE A PART OF THE GROUP. HUGS, AND BEST WISHES. SHIRL
We had a wonderful time at the Swenson property. Shirl was fabulous throughout the booking process and responded to emails promptly. The description of the property was entirely accurate as were the photos. The property was not only clean and well-maintained, it was charming. There was even a beautiful flower arrangement waiting for us upon arrival! I would absolutely recommend this property to others and hope to stay again in the future.

Best pet & child friendly cottage on the beach!
Best pet & child friendly cottage on the beach!
We recently stayed at the cottage and loved it! We didn't have to worry about breaking fragile artwork or tracking dirt on the carpet since the floors are hardwood through out the house and the house is really child friendly. It is a simple cottage with a perfect view of the ocean from the main living area even from the kitchen (and bathroom if you leave the door open). The kitchen had most every thing you would need to cook with, as far as pots and things go, but no spices -so remember to bring your own. I have to say the beds were the most comfortable beds ever with beautiful bed spreads and duvets. Even our beds at home are not that cozy! The very clean bathroom looks as if it was recently remodeled with a shower. The only thing missing was a hot tub or a soaking tub. There is a hammock in the yard that overlooks the path to the beach. We might have seen 2 people on the beach at the most! In the picture, it looks as if the beach is far away from the house, but it actually is just a short walk down a path. This property is tucked away from the highway and crowds, so our son loved playing in the yard while we sat on the deck. We had 3 sunny days beachside and rainey nights next to the woodburing stove. The driveway was a little muddy due to all the rain but that is par for the course. Especially coming from Washington. The very nice caretaker, Michael, suggested we visit Strawberry Hill to look for agates. We weren't sure what an agate was, but we found a dozen or so sea lions resting on the rocks. A little futher south is the well known Sea Lion Caves, if you like nature, you will be amazed on how many seals are down there! 300 plus during breeding season (we were there April 3rd and saw pups!). A little stinky in the cave, but worth the trip. There are several pet friendly restaurants with outdoor seating in Yahacts and one in Newport called Rouges Public Pub-they even had a doggie menu and really good seafood pasta! Also in Newport is the aquarium that is a must see. We would recommend this to people with a small family or two couples. Plus dog owners of anykind!
