About the property

Amazing bunkhouse with 8 bunks. Short walk to the beach and town. Exceptional!

Summer Camp includes a beautiful craftsman beach house with a bunkhouse. The main house includes a comfortable great room for hanging-out, a cozy dining nook, fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The bunkhouse has 8 bunks.

We like to put the kids and their friends in the bunkhouse and use the main house for the adults. This works out great for both the adults and the kids.

The bunkhouse has a dramatic vaulted ceiling, oversized french doors and craftsman wood paneling throughout. The cottage and bunkhouse are connected by a spacious deck. Summer Camp is two blocks from the beach and five blocks from town. Curl up and enjoy the quiet by the wood stove after a brisk walk on the beautiful beach or hang out on the rear-deck with family and friends and enjoy a barbecue on the gas grill.



LOVE Manzanita and this amazing house! Could not have been better … from the super fun bunk house, to the deck, outdoor shower (my favorite) and sunny weather -- the perfect mini vacation with friends. A great time was had by all! Looking forward to another visit…

Beautiful weather, a stunning home, a short walk to the beach, the cozy wood stove, the bunkhouse, dinner on the deck, bonfires, walks on the beck, good friends, great food, a trip to Oswald West State Park. Thank you very much for the chance to stay in your home.

…have spent several weeks relaxing & having a wonderful time here at Summer Camp in Manzanita. This is our second visit to Manzanita and we just love it. It is still as quaint as ever and has one of the best beaches along this coast, we think. We will miss Summer Camp and the cool decks & bunkhouse where the kids have hung-out a lot! It has been so relaxing here and we've spent a lot of time reading books and playing all the board games -- including a new one my son now wants to buy 'Settlers of Catan'. Lots of walks on the beach, boogie boarding and hanging-out. We've done several hikes and recommend Neahakanne Mountain on a clear day, Falcon Cover and Ecola Stake Park.

We just wanted to say thank you for extending to us your beautiful summer camp at Manzanita...we all fell in love with it! You have such excellent attention to detail and with two architects and a former architect/designer in our group, we were completely enamored!

The set-up is perfect and the beds were the best I've ever slept in. My 8 year old son said to me as I was tucking him in tonight in his own bed, 'I had three nights of sleeping in the most comfortable bed!' (both of our kids slept in the middle bunks while our friends' kids slept way up high on the top bunks.) I guess it's time we get him a new bed...

You probably heard me say 'wow' when I walked in the front door here… Cape Falcon is a splendid hike. Bonfires on the beach with s'mores!!! Thank you for sharing this comfortable home with us.

About Peg Bogard

We grew up on the East Coast enjoying the beaches of New England and New Jersey. We wanted to share our love of the beach and ocean with our children and friends. A vacation home on the coast is the perfect college investment tool that allows us to enjoy our savings tool and share it with others. We hope you also enjoy your time at summer camp surrounded by friends and family discovering what a special place the Oregon coast is, especially Manzanita.

Peg Bogard purchased this house in 2009

Why Peg Bogard chose Manzanita

Manzanita is a special small town by the sea. This family and dog friendly town makes it easy to relax, slow down and enjoy the coast. We wanted to focus our time at the coast on the natural beauty and time spent playing with friends and family. We spend our time on the beach, on our bikes, on the deck and playing cards or board games. There are a few cute shops and delicious meals to be had in Manzanita, just on a small scale that lets you appreciate the care with which the proprietors have chosen their wares and foodstuffs. Manzanita is truly a pearl in the midst of the rugged Oregon coast.

What makes this house unique

A great beach, small/quite town, great windsurfing, great hiking, cozy interior, wood stove, large deck for outdoor dining/hanging-out. A special place to spend time with family & friends. A high-quality craftsman home.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The bunk house is super cute. The owners were very attentive when we had questions and in one instance needed some assistance at the house with the internet. It's a nice distance from town; easily walkable. And the beach, as well. Thank you.

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

The Manzanita Summer Camp was an amazing get-away for our family. The location is way better than we expected (1 block away from the beach) and also very close to town. The home itself is gorgeous - well laid out, comfortable and stocked with everything you need. My favorite part - the outdoor shower!

Great house in a convenient and quiet location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to Manzanita, and we always stay in a different vacation rental so we can experiecne the area differently each time. Our next visit, however, just might have to be a repeat stay at this awesome house! Such an inviting and convenient layout of the main house, but we really loved the bunk house, which includes an outdoor shower! The owners are very nice, communications were a breeze. Highly recommended, especially for multiple couples with kids.
