Arch Cape House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom (Sleeps 4-6)

SPECIAL RATES FOR RETURN VISITORS! Guests who have stayed at Woodsong from 2010 on will receive a 10% discount on their nightly rental fee.

In 2016 Woodsong is available for rent from May 15 through September 15. This traditional, very private beach cottage comfortably sleeps 4 - 6.

The House.

Woodsong is a charming 2 bedroom/1 bath, pine cottage. It has an ocean view from the relaxing upper deck, while the main floor enjoys the total privacy of a green, wooded setting. Nestled into a partially fenced, grassy yard, Woodsong’s front porch deck, with a BBQ and patio tables & chairs, awaits your arrival.

This cottage is an ideal rental value. Its traditional beach appeal is perfect for a cozy, refreshing vacation at economy prices.

Enjoy quiet walks on the beach, beach-combing, and spectacular sunsets over the ocean. Explore nearby hiking trails, lounge in the sun on the upper west deck, or curl up with a good book near the gas-log fireplace. Take classes at the popular EVO cooking school in Cannon Beach. Enjoy first class cuisine in Manzanita or Cannon Beach, each within 10 minutes drive.

The local area.

Arch Cape is a special Oregon treasure. Ninety miles from Portland, it is a unique fusion of forest and sea. Arch Cape has over a mile of pristine, white sands beach. It is just minutes by car from Oswald State Park and the Oregon National Wildlife Sanctuary to the south and Ecola State Park to the north. It is a quiet, residential community with easy access to superb shops and restaurants in neighboring Manzanita and Cannon Beach. Get the best of all possible worlds in this exclusive, affordable vacation rental!

The living area.

The main floor includes a welcoming living room, full-sized family kitchen and recently upgraded bathroom. A double-futon sofa, wicker easy chairs and a gas-fire log stove are available for your pleasure. There is cable service and broadband Internet (wireless and Ethernet). The flat-screen HDTV/DVD player has gaming and PC ports. There are modern appliances in the kitchen, including a dual-fuel range, with wok and simmer burners. A spiral staircase reaches to the loft-style upstairs sleeping quarters and sunny, private upstairs deck.

Sleeping areas.

There is a queen bed in the main-level bedroom. The upstairs loft provides 1 queen bed and 1 full size mattress in a cozy corner at the other side of the loft. Traditional quilts and down comforters help you enjoy a comfortable night of sweet dreams.

Additional features.

Dogs are welcome at Woodsong, with a pet deposit. The beach is pet friendly.

The house is equipped with linens and kitchen utensils. There are children’s books and a chest of board games, as well as vacation reading for lazy afternoons or evenings by the fire.

Woodsong is located just off the west side of Highway 101. There is safe off-street parking for 2 cars and easy beach access. Two decks with patio furniture and lounge chairs are included for your enjoyment. The house is immaculately clean, well-furnished, and non-smoking.

For your convenience.

Severe weather is rare in this area during the summer. In the unlikely event of a serious storm, Woodsong is equipped with inline power generation. Should there be a power failure, the generator will fuel essential services, including heat, hot water, the refrigerator, and select lights and outlets. We want to be sure your stay is a pleasant one, whatever mood the weather is in.

During your stay, the owner is available by phone, text, email, and in person, to ensure you have an enjoyable visit.

About Helen

We have owned and managed Woodsong Cottage as a summer rental since 2010. Arch Cape is a dream location for us - quiet and private while driving distance to fantastic fun and food.

Why Helen chose Northern Coast

This is one of the most private homes in Arch Cape. On the ocean side of the community, you have no highways to cross, to traffic to fuss with. Just a quick walk on a quiet residential street to get to the beach.

Beware! Do not rent!!! Lies, lies, with a great location

  • 1 of 5

It was my first time renting with VRBO renter told me in a final email to email contracts with her directly because VRBO is a public site and my credit card information will be on a public site (lie #1). I fell for it. We got there and the cottage was filled with pet hair with dirty socks under the couch. All furniture was old but comfortable for what we needed. My dad took allergy medication the whole time there necause he is allergic to cats and nothing was dusted or vacuumed. Our dog is old and has dental issues (on soft food and just lays around) . She was never out of our site. Went to beach with us and stayed in van if we went out to eat. We actually vacuumed the cottage and washed all towels before. I wrote a nice review and left it on the kitchen table. The cottage itself though dated and dirty was comfortable and well stocked. After arriving home I inquired about my deposit waiting for the usually comment I get from any rental that the place looked better than I left it. Instead I recieved a shocking and snarky email, (lie #2). I am pasting email

Owner's Response: Kerry's review is a surprise given the written review she gave us upon checkout, which reads: Overall rating - "Excellent (5 stars)" Reservations - "Amazing and very helpful. I felt very welcome." Accommodations ' "Well stocked with kitchen and towels. Beds are comfy. Great location! We proved it!" Cleanliness: "Excellent (5 stars.)" Maintenance. "Amazing place. Everything organized great." Comments: "Great cottage. Great location. We will be back." What appears to have created the renter's concern is dog tooth marks we found in a seat cushion, which the renter had turned over so the holes were obvious only as we cleaned both sides of the cushions. We assured the renter that we expected to be able to replace the torn cushion for less than $25 - anything under amount that we consider normal wear and tear and do not charge the renter. We were able to replace the cushion for less than $25 and returned the renter her security and damage deposits in full. While the rental contract allows 14 days for the refund, we were able to return the full refund in 3 days. We sincerely regret the renter's degree of distress but did everything in our power to ensure that both her party was comfortable during its stay and that future parties had a rental experience with the same attention to detail that marks all of our work. The renter's distress may explain her belief that everything that was clean and comfortable during her stay abruptly became old and dirty after the fact. Every year we upgrade as much in the cottage as we can. The seat cushions are new this year, as is the flat screen TV and several counter top appliances in the kitchen. We were pleased to be able to replace the cushion without causing a financial impact on the renter. Our goal is comfort and good service for all of our renters.
