Cove Cottage is perched on a hill, with a beautiful view of the ocean. It overlooks Cove Beach, just a 3-minute walk away. Located between Cannon Beach and Manzanita, the cottage is surrounded by the old growth forests of Oswald West State Park. Parts of the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Sanctuary are visible from the living room. Enjoy a BBQ or the sound of the ocean from the deck. Or watch shooting stars at night from the Marquis 3-person hot tub located on the deck.
Cove Beach is one of the least known beaches on the Northern Oregon Coast. Watch pelicans and cormorants from the living room window as they roost on Castle Rock, part of the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Sanctuary. During low tide, a vast sand beach is exposed at Cove Beach. It is common to have the entire two mile beach to yourself a rare treat not only for Oregon, but for most of the world. During high tide, there is not much sand exposed, but you can drive one mile to Arch Cape Beach where there is always sand. Or, within 6 miles to the south you can visit Manzanita Beach, a stretch of seven miles of beach.
Cove Cottage was recently completely remodeled. It is comfortable and well equipped, with fireplace, TV, WIFI. It is simple, comfortable, and pleasant. The 1500 square foot cottage home features a panoramic ocean view, an expansive deck with BBQ and hot tub, a large great room, 3 bedrooms, and an upstairs/loft with spiral staircase, all new appliances, gorgeous wood floors, and an 1100 square foot deck made from sustainably harvested Red Balau Mahogany. Please note that a narrow spiral staircase to both bedrooms upstairs, and that both bathrooms are downstairs. Some find this challenging, or uncomfortable, especially at night. Most of our guests don't mind, and consider it part of the cottage charm; however, if these features would be limiting and uncomfortable for you or your guests, we suggest you find alternate accomodations.
Leisure activities on-site include beachcombing, bird watching, walks on the sand and tidal pools, whale watching, wildlife viewing, and walks in the park and forest. Off site, in Manzanita and Cannon Beach, are horse-back riding, golfing, and scenic drives. The coast further away has deep sea fishing, cycling, kayaking, mountain biking, surf fishing, tennis, and wind-surfing.
Nearby within several miles are the communities of Cannon Beach and Manzanita, with coffee shops, restaurants, post office, grocery stores.
