Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Octagonal log home provides a unique coastal experience. Set in a wooded neighborhood the home feels like your own tree house. On cold days relax in front of the gas fireplace and play a board game. On sunny days the activities are endless. In the evenings, enjoy a drink on the large deck and listen to the wind in the pines. The open floor plan of the upstairs encourages family time. Both bedrooms are downstairs on the ground floor with the bathroom and laundry.

This home is located just minutes away from the incredible seven miles of Manzanita beach, Nehalem Bay State Park, and the quaint town of Manzanita and Nehalem. Enjoy kiteboarding in Manzanita, surfing at Oswald West or trail running up Neahkahnie Mountain. If relaxation is your idea of vacation you can visit the spa in Manzanita, browse antique shops, walk the beach or drink coffee at one of the local coffee shops. Like to fish? Wheeler Marina is a few minutes down the road with boats and crab pots to rent. At low tide walk along Nehalem Bay to dig for clams.

About The Owner

We are 40 somethings who live full time in Hood River, Oregon. We are self employed and run a small video production company and run kids adventure camps in the Columbia Gorge. When we aren't working we take our daughter to the beach where we unwind, surf and eat cinnamon buns at Bread and Ocean. We feel fortunate to live and vacation in such beautiful places. While in Hood River we grow our own food, run our cars on vegetable oil and do what we can to live a simpler life.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2008

Why The Owner chose Nehalem

We had a dream to own a log cabin one day. When we moved to Oregon the log cabin dream turned into a tree house dream which turned into a yurt on the Oregon coast dream. We didn't plan on buying a house but when we saw our cabin we knew this was the place for us. It was a log cabin, treehouse, yurt all in one! We love the relaxed environment of the Manzanita area and prefer it to the more touristy areas on the coast.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy cooking big breakfasts in the cozy main room and taking morning runs on the Alder Creek Farm trail. Other mornings we'll go to Bread and Ocean for a tasty morning treat and head to Neahkanie Mountain to see what kind of mood the ocean is in. We love day trips down to Oswald West Park where we haul our daughter, our surfboards and snacks for a day at the beach. Oswald is our favorite beach to enjoy with our family. In the evenings we enjoy a drink on the deck at the house and cuddle in front of the fire while we play games and read. We leave the cabin fully restored, rested and grateful.

Beautiful log cabin feel

  • 5 of 5

This house was our first home away stay and it was better than we expected . There was plenty of space for our family of 5. We didn't cook but enjoyed family time in the common area and rested well in the sleeping quarters. It was right of the 101 which made it easy to commute. Will definitely stay again!

Very cute house.

  • 5 of 5

House was cute and clean. Easy to find and good location. Only recommendation would be to have lawn chairs on the deck.

Roomy. Close to everything.

  • 3 of 5

Pros: easy drive to Manzanita, Cannon Beach, Haystack Rock, great hike at Neahkahnie Mountain, etc. It's a wonderful launching point to explore the unrivaled Oregon coast. Second floor is a great living area. Some great games are provided.

Cons: As some reviewers have noted, the place is not as secluded as the pictures might lead you to believe. That being said, we had a great stay and it still felt pretty private. I may be spoiled by other VRBOs, but I'm surprised that no coffee is provided as a hospitable touch. There are coffee shops that are walkable in Manzanita, so I'd recommend stopping there and getting a bag so that you can brew your own at the house. There is one adirondack chair outside on the second floor, but it's seen better days. Would have also loved to sign a guestbook, but didn't see one. Part of the fun in staying in a place like this is seeing the variety of locations that people come from and the adventures that they had while there.

Owner's Response: Hello Stephen, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the cabin and appreciated the unique layout of the home. The listing for the house says that the house is located in a wooded neighborhood. Yes, we have neighbors right next door. The photos are taken so that the character of the house can be seen close up. We regret that you felt misled. It's true that we have many fantastic coffee shops in town and find that most guests prefer to bring their favorite coffee with them. We hope you'll return.
