Our home is located a two minute walk 1.5 blocks from seven miles of uninterrupted white sandy beach in Manzanita on the Oregon Coast. We are 3 blocks from the golf course and 3 blocks from Nehalem Bay State Park which has a boat ramp, and horseback riding. Go West to the mighty Pacific, go East to the Bay....all within walking or biking distance. Two different water worlds at your disposal. Some of the best nature has to offer...long walks on the beach, bike rides, campfires, windsurfing, kayaking on the Bay and Nehalem River. Witness the great bald eagle, fishing, crabbing, seal watching, seabirds, spectacular views, hiking or just relax and listen to the ocean !!
Expect frequent visits from a family of deer who have adopted our neighborhood helping themselves to our potted gerainiums on the deck.(spotted twin fawns this year)
Our home has a balance of painted walls, wood stair rails, vaulted beam, cedar-lined ceiling throughout with a masonry wood burning fireplace in the living room that towers the height of the building disappearing into the vaulted ceiling. Just built for blazing fires. Cozy, carpeted bedrooms with queen size beds..in one upstairs bedroom, along with the queen bed, are two queen mattresses on the floor in cedar-lined 'ship's berths' which are intended for use with sleeping bags..kids love them, and they are a great place to hide for an afternoon nap or to read a book!!
It has a fully outfitted kitchen and laundry room with a shower for those cold, sandy little kids.
Covered back porch goes the whole length of the house and is great for rainy days and barbecues. Front deck and deck off of upstairs loft is wonderful for basking in the sun while you drink your morning coffee. Downstairs TV in living room is connected to wifi, as well as one in one of the upstairs bedrooms, and both have VCR players for movies.
We invite you to give it a try and hope you enjoy your stay with us and that our home is all you hoped it would be ! Please take care of the house and area for others to enjoy and we are hopeful you will return for another stay.
