The Dungeness is a cozy two bedroom, one bath cottage overlooking Beverly Beach just north of Newport. Each bedroom has one queen bed and the home sleeps 4 comfortably. The bright, open floor plan affords fabulous ocean views from the living room and dining area and resident grey whales are a regular sight. The kitchen is well stocked and the cook also gets a spectacular view of the ocean! If you prefer to venture outside to enjoy the view, the private back yard has ample seating and an outdoor hot tub. Enjoy s'mores over the stone fire pit or grill fresh salmon on either the gas or charcoal grill. Beverly Beach is just a short walk down the hill and beach access is under the bridge at Spencer Creek. When you reach the beach, look left to see the Lighthouse at Yaquina Head. To the right is Otter Rock and just a mile's walk to surfing, Devil's Punch Bowl State Natural Area, and amazing tidepooling at the Marine Gardens. When you return, feel free to use the outdoor foot shower. The cottage allows a maximum of two dogs. Please do not leave them unattended at any time. You may notice glittering strings hanging outside the front door; they keep the barn swallows from nesting in the entry way so please leave them in place.

About Devon Mann
I am an Oregon native and U of O alum. Growing up, I spent much of my childhood visiting the central Oregon coast with my family. Currently I live in northeastern Illinois--way too far from the ocean! I aspire to share my passion for marine biology and the sea with my family by spending time every summer visiting Hatfield Marine Science Center and the Oregon Coast Aquarium, tide-pooling at the near by Marine Gardens, surfing, and endlessly wandering the beach.
Devon Mann purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Devon Mann chose Beverly Beach
I originally purchased this property when my daughter was just one year old. Since we live in Illinois, I wanted her to have the opportunity to experience all that the pacific northwest coast has to offer as I did as a child. I chose the Dungeness because of its beautiful private view and yard, simplicity, character, and location to Newport and Beverly Beach State Park. It is one of the few locations where visitors can walk to the beach without having to navigate crossing Highway 101.
What makes this Cottage unique
One of my favorite family traditions at the cottage is roasting s'mores on over a fire in the outdoor stone fire pit while watching the sunset. More often than not, a resident grey whale spout joins the amazing view. There is little light pollution after sunset and on clear summer nights we frequently are able to see shooting stars.

The Dungeness was perfect and just as advertised. Great view, great lighting, quiet neighborhood, well-equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds and linens, close to Devil's punchbowl, tide pools, good food at Nye Beach, and aquarium. I look forward to returning soon.
Beautiful setting and wonderful cottage/residence.
Devon and the cleaning service (thanks Julie!) were terrific in correcting a hiccup when we arrived. The house is incredibly comfortable and well appointed, as well as clean and fresh. We had a wonderful time in this beautiful place - very private and quiet with a great view. We will definitely be back, and, I just recommended this property to a friend.
This little gem was the perfect house for a girlfriend road trip.
It feels both remote and conveniently located.
The layout makes it feel bigger than it actually is, and it is a very comfortable home.
Especially the beds!
The sheets are wonderful! I need to find out where they were purchased.
Thanks for everything Devon! You are wonderful to work with.
The cottage was the perfect weekend getaway for my partner and I and our dog. Easy to find, gorgeous view, clean and beautifully furnished. All instructions provided were very clear. The hot tub, fire pit, and bbq were great bonuses and super easy to use. It made me wonder how we have been living in a place without these things.
The beaches nearby are amazing - I could spend all day out there! Newport has some quirky shops by the bay and is easy to navigate. Overall a wonderful vacation - I just wish it was longer!
One suggestion for improvement would be to provide saran wrap or ziploc bags for guests to store food. However, I really don't have anything bad to say about the cottage. We will definitely be back!
Thank you very much!
Wonderful! Everything just as we hoped for!
My husband and I absolutely loved this place! It was just as beautiful as the pictures. We were able to hot tub and enjoy a fire at night with the scenery of the ocean. It is a very private area, very quiet and relaxing. Everything we needed was in the house and it was beautifully updated/decorated! Many restaurants within a 10-15 min drive as well as beach access in about a 2 min drive! Would easily be able to walk to the beach access point if preferred. We will definitely be visiting again and bringing the fur babies along next time!
A beautiful place to stay! Highly recommended!
