About The Owner

This cottage was a labor of love. While in treatment for breast cancer, I needed something to do to divert my attention and rebuild my vision for a future. This cottage is the result of that need. My husband is a general contractor but, I wanted to be the contractor on this project myself, and so that's how it started. I drew up the simple, practical design, organized the sub contractors, and made the interior selections. I love this house and am happy to share it with others who will appreciate the special place that it is and enjoy making wonderful memories with their own families.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Northern Coast

The lot was occupied by a Sears Mail Order Kit House (circa 1940 which was originally erected closer to the ocean on the site that now houses Tolovana Inn). It was moved to this lot on Monroe Street in the 1980's and served as a well loved beach cottage for a Portland family for many years. A picture of this house on the day it was moved to this lot on Monroe Street hangs on the wall in the downstairs hallway of the new house.

Interestingly, our realtor (Susan Tone, Windermere - Manzanita) provided us with a copy of the original advertisement on the lots in the East Presidential Area. The plat map outlines the lots for sale, this lot was originally priced at $40.00 back in 1905. What a deal!

What makes this house unique

Even though this isn't a beach front or even beach view lot, I am very happy with its location.

It's an easy straight walk just 1.5 blocks to the beach and just a pleasant stroll to downtown. That's a good thing in the summer time, when tourists fill downtown and parking is hard to find. Once you arrive, you don't need to use your car to get around.

The other thing that makes this house special, is that the living room and kitchen are upstairs. The arrangement allows for a perch like view of the trees and neighboring homes. It's light and bright and a very comfortable place to relax.

This is a lovely home that is within walking distance to the beach & the main downtown area where all the shops and restaurants are located. It is well stocked for those wishing to prepare meals at home too. There are games and puzzles for the whole family to enjoy. Overall a wonderful, clean & cozy cottage that makes for a great stay at Cannon Beach!

Relax in a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This home has character reminding you of its older neighbors, but it is a delightfully new home with high ceilings, a huge modern kitchen and adjoining great room on the top floor, with lots of light and comfortable decor. Bedrooms and huge modern bathroom downstairs, plus yard and patio. We found everything in walking distance, one block to the beach, 2 blocks into town, 3 blocks the other way to the new Pelican brew pub. We really relaxed and enjoyed great walks on the beach. Thanks

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 12, 13 and 14 year old boys. This house is very comfortable and in a great location. Our boys enjoyed the freedom of walking into town and to the beach with out the parents. We would definitely stay here again - with or without kids!

Loved the location, loved the house

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and her husband, and their 1 year old twins, and I just returned from "not enough" days in Cannon Beach. We were lucky enough to have chosen this home, and really appreciated all aspects of it -- very clean, a great floor plan, all sorts of cooking equipment, good beds and bedding, nicely appointed, a TV that worked on Seahawks Sunday, and perhaps best of all, great beach access (which everyone younger than I used A LOT!). Even a great wagon to haul stuff and kids to the beach. We greatly appreciated being able to bring the dog. A great getaway that I highly recommend. If I have my way, we will go back again. Thanks very much to the owners!

Fantastic house and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house with our 2-year old son (and celebrated his birthday here!) and it was amazing. The location is walkable to everything and the beach proximity is perfect. Each day he got excited about sitting in the provided wheel cart and we'd load up with provided sand toys and head to the beach. The house itself is very nice for a rental - high quality furniture, beds, cookware, etc. The topping on everything was being dog friendly. We took our Shiba Inu with us and she quickly fell in love with the place - enjoyed the fenced in back yard, slept endlessly on the cool wooden floors upstairs and also enjoyed the beach proximity. I think we've found our go-to place in Cannon Beach. Thanks for a great vacation.

Cozy Coastal Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This home is such a great place to stay in Cannon Beach. The location of the house is close enough to the beach and a short walk to all of the the Cannon Beach stores, cafes and restaurants that you can arrive within an hour from Portland, park your car and enjoy all that Cannon Beach has to offer. The house has a great layout with the 3 bedrooms downstairs and a great kitchen and living room upstairs. The light from the outside and smell of the ocean with the windows open make it a relaxing getaway. Ecola State Park is a short drive away ( 10 minutes) with some of the best hiking on the Oregon Coast. Indian Beach at Ecola is where the pirate ship scene in the Goonies was filmed. We love staying at this house in Cannon Beach and look forward to many more relaxing nights on the coast.
