Owner info

Year Purchased: 1963

About the owner: The picture is one of my mom Ruth, circa 1940ish. My parents cared for this lovely home for 40 years & left it to me. My husband & I live & work in Seaside, keeping up this wonderful home for travelers & family alike. Many travelers have said how wonderful it is for reunions, small events or even a romantic getaway! Everyone loves to come stay in our charming home.

Why the Owner Chose Seaside, OR, USA:
Our parents moved here in 1963 to work for a logging company. They found it a wonderful place to raise their family. Our mother spent lots of time in Seaside as a youth. Her dad, Reggie bought some 'beach cabins' in about 1955 so his family could enjoy the beach more often. When my parents moved here we needed more than a cabin and they discovered this lovely home. As I explore our area & see the houses I'm reminded of my mothers exclamations about 'all the cute little houses'. This is certainly one of them. Come see for yourself.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
In just a few short minutes you can be on the spacious Seaside beach. It's a lovely place for soliloquy or socialization! There's no better place to walk, ride your bike or people watch than the 'Prom' in Seaside and every evening many people come out to view the sunset. The beach has plenty of logs & driftwood to make a bonfire & roast hot dogs. Many people enjoy clamming & crabbing. The charm of the house itself is intriguing & comfortable. Curl up on the sun porch for an cozy afternoon nap. Our house was build in 1920. If you're going to have a large gathering or reunion, there are several other vacation rentals nearby, which if coordinated far enough in advance, could all be rented simultaneously so your group could be close together but not under the same roof. Let me know your needs & I can see if the others are available as well.
