LAST MINUTE SPECIAL—AUGUST 15 to 20, 2016—15% DISCOUNT ON ANY TWO NIGHT RENTAL ON THOSE OPEN DATES.

PICTURE WINDOWS LOOK OUT ON THE NECANICUM RIVER—PRIVATE, YET CLOSE TO THE BEACH AND TOWN
Heron's Rest is a 1910 cabin sitting on 5/8 acre along the Necanicum River north of downtown Seaside, Oregon. Facing west, the picture windows wrap around the front of the house providing hours of beautiful views of the river, estuary, animal life, and sunsets. The 5/8 acre yard offers a play area for kids and a lovely riverside sitting/BBQ area. Located just far enough from downtown to be a quiet secluded setting, the cabin is only 2 blocks from the 12th street bridge, a favorite crabbing location, and just an 8 minute walk (6 blocks) to the beach. The restaurants and shopping areas are a short 10 minute walk, or 2 minute drive away.
-----------
New gas furnace, water heater, dual-fuel convection oven and gas range, and gas washer/dryer. New queen pillow-top beds and new deluxe queen hida-a-bed.
WIRELESS INTERNET (WIFI)
------------
The cabin is fully furnished for short or long stays. Two bedrooms without adjoining walls assure quiet evenings, and a queen sofa-sleeper allows for extra guests. There is ample ventilation and a ceiling fan to bring in the sea breeze. On cooler nights electronically controlled heating and electric blankets assure everyone gets a warm night sleep.

This is our home and we love it. The laughter of children, BBQs, birthdays, the 4th of July fireworks celebration with fires on the beach, the Hood-to-Coast Relay, volleyball tournaments, sandcastle contests and a hundred other celebrations have brought laughter and joy to this house. Since its construction in 1910, when a clam shell road linked Seaside with the Astoria train station, this house we call Heron's Rest has given rest, relaxation, comfort and joy to those who slept here.

From the picture windows you will enjoy hours of viewing as the wildlife passes on the river. Often herons are seen perched on the nearby trees or snags; eagles swoop in graceful curves as they fish for the days meal, and seals can be seen sneaking their way up river in search of salmon, crab or other local fish. We invite you to join those who have enjoyed this special place for your special occasions.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Long time Oregonians that live, laugh, love and write at our charming 1910 cabin on the Oregon Coast.

Why the Owner Chose Seaside, OR, USA:
Seaside is the perfect vacation spot only 1 hour from Portland. Heron's Rest is the perfect vacation cabin. One hundred thirty feet of river frontage, our 5/8 acre mini-park is secluded yet only only five blocks from the beach and a few more from town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lounging on the front lawn watching the world float by on the Necanicum River. Walk to Seaside's 3 mile beach, rent a surrey two blocks away, crab on the 12th St. bridge or stroll to town. Quiet, peaceful, serene on our 5/8 acre park-like retreat. Full westward facing picture windows accentuate the serenity of the river, fabulous sunsets, and daytime activities. Spend a quiet time napping in the hammock, reading in the adirondacks in the garden, or making s'mores around the outdoor firepit. Adventurers can camp in the yard, while others sleep comfortably in queen size beds. A ten minute walk, or two minute drive, takes you to our three mile beach and ocean fun. Hiking, building sand castles, flying kites or lying in the sun are just a few of the activities available along the water's edge. Closer, we have a bicycle and surrey rental only two blocks away, and fishing from the 12th Street bridge, or across the river. (There is no river access from our property).
