Property description

The Puffin House is located at the edge of Nehalem State Park, with miles of great biking and walking trails, horseback riding, access to the bay for kayaking, boating, crabbing, and fishing. It is also a short three-block walk from the house to seven-mile long Manzanita Beach, one of the most spectacular beaches on the north coast. If you feel up for a good walk, head south on Manzanita Beach and walk to the jetty, which is usually covered with seals lounging on the rocks or fishing in the water, along with heron and egrets searching for crabs at water's edge.

If golf is your game, the house is only four blocks from the beautiful Manzanita Golf Course (nine hole) or a short walk to the driving range, if you just feel like practicing. There is ample parking for a boat, and the boat ramp into the bay is less than a mile down the road in the State Park.

The tastefully furnished house is also perfectly suited for simply lazing about; reading, listening to music, relaxing on the deck, or watching the deer graze in the yard, and taking in all the natural beauty around you. The house has bicycles of all sizes, a fully-equipped kitchen, TV with DVD and VCR, porta-crib, high chair and all linens are provided. It is a truly relaxing getaway.

As for the town of Manzanita, it is one of the few towns along the North Oregon coast that is not located directly on Highway 101. This provides a quiet and secluded vacation yet still keeps you close to shopping, dining, and recreation. Manzanita boasts some delicious dining experiences, as well as fun and unique shopping, and beach activities. It has two small grocery stores, gift and antique shops, a diverse choice of restaurants a wine bar, a day spa, bakery, and a city park with play structure and tennis courts.

A gorgeous long beach, golf, tennis, hiking, surfing, boating, and other coastal activities are all available in this charming town.

Two nearby towns - Nehalem one mile and Wheeler five miles - offer river and bay activities as well as good antiquing and restaurants.
