Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy the Oregon Coast rain or shine from this sweet spot on the Nehalem River. The cottage is located in a quiet clean RV park (Nehalem Shores) just a few minutes from good food, shopping and the beach. Great fishing on the river out your front door. The villages of Manzanita, Nehalem and Wheeler are nearby. The cottage is clean, light and bright with lots of windows so you can enjoy the river view and all the wildlife that goes alone with it (elk, sea lions, bald eagles and more). It's a great place to come home to after a day at the beach or a great spot to spend the day reading, relaxing and enjoying the river view. When the weather is rough at the beach our place is protected by trees. Enjoy fantastic fishing, paddle boarding or kayaking on the river, shopping nearby antique shops, wine tasting or kite back Manzanita Beach. You'll love the cozy feel of this sweet little cottage along with the river and wildlife viewing from the front porch. Laundry services and free wi-fi are available and the locals are super friendly. All this just a short drive from Portland but well away from the busy tourist hubub. Great vacation spot and an excellent value!

About PJ Swan

I grew up in Oregon and my husband is a transplant from New England. We both love the Oregon Coast with all the beautiful beaches, parks and hiking. It's a great place to go for a few days to relax, explore and generally enjoy our beautiful state. This photo is us taking a break from playing at Manzanita Beach.

PJ Swan purchased this cottage in 2006

Why PJ Swan chose Northern Coast

We live in the high desert of Central Oregon where the sun shines a lot and we get very little rain. Driving over the mountains to the lush green coast feels delicious. We love how the cottage is protected from coastal winds when it's stormy and the quiet is such a treat compared to busy towns like Cannon Beach, Seaside and Lincoln City. The dogs love the beach too.

What makes this cottage unique

One of our favorite things to have a fire on Manzanita beach as the sun sets. It's a relaxing way to end the day after kayaking, biking, shopping or whatever. We have a fire pit by the cottage too if the beach is too busy.

A Picturesque Place

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has all the amenities for a wonderful stay. It is clean, cozy, comfortable, and quiet. The river view is gorgeous and the wildlife is awesome. Although the location feels far away, it is very convenient to Nehalem, Wheeler, and Manzanita. Scenic Cannon Beach is only a short drive away. It is the perfect place to relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy all that this spectacular area has to offer. We hope to return soon!

Beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

Very cute, clean with beautiful views of the river! Loved waking up to the misty river with my cup of tea in hand. Only complaint was the heater didn't quite keep up with the space so I was cold sometimes, but it didn't effect my enjoyment and I will definitely come back in future to this spot.

Nehalem is adorable and manzanita beach is the best beach with less crowds.

The owners were great and provided everything needed to find the location and enjoy my stay. I will definitely be back!

Cute Clean Cottage in a RV Park on the Nehalem River

  • 5 of 5

The small cottage on the Nehalem River has all the amenities needed, including bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living room with a TV/internet and a view of the river. Although the cottage is in a recreation RV park with neighbors, it doesn't have the feel of a RV park and is quiet. It is about a 5-minute drive to Manzanita to the ocean. The people who manage the cottage are nice.

Owner's Response: Hi Anna, Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review for the cottage. It helps other guests know what to expect hearing from someone who has been there. It also helps me know that things are being managed as we'd like. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Pj
