With stunning ocean views, elegant style, and artistic elements, The Mermaid is truly unique. Nestled in Arch Cape, about 70 miles west of Portland, this tranquil getaway affords easy access to the beach along a nature trail. Once upon a time a live album (Arch Cape Sessions) was recorded in the living room, writers have holed up for weeks on end to focus on their craft, and families and artists have come to the Mermaid to refresh, relax, and reflect.
When the tide is out, wander North around various sandstone outcroppings to Hug Point, Arcadia Beach, even all the way to Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach. Wander South around the Cape and you will find the Arches for which Arch Cape is named, and some exquisite tidepools. Fine dining and shopping are minutes away in Cannon Beach to the North, and Manzanita to the South.
The Mermaid sleeps 6, offers a full kitchen, 2 full bathrooms, washer/dryer, large upper and lower decks, and a hot tub with an ocean view.
We are excited for you to experience this unique place, and look forward to hearing from you! Please email us with your interest!

was a wonderful house!
we stayed here for my birthday getaway weekend and it was lovely! loved the wonderful crystal clear hot tub with a great view! ❤ the stairs were a little scary at first but after going up and down a few times they were fine.. it is super quiet location and you can hear the crashing of the waves coming in it was a wonderful weekend thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us we enjoyed it!
Peaceful, Just what the Doctor ordered!!!
As advertised, this property is quiet. We so enjoyed our stay. We surely will return.
When we arrived the temperature inside was 50F. The fireplace was easy to start and with the wall heaters we were able to get the temp up to a very comfortable level in no time. The bedrooms are very comfortable. High end bedding all around. The two bathrooms are very well appointed. The only negative, for us is that one bathroom is downstairs and the other is upstairs. No on suite baths. Speaking of the stairs. You need to be very careful going up and down. These stairs could be difficult if you have bad knees, hips or are a large person. The kitchen is beautiful . Granite counter, high end cabinets and stainless steel appliances. there are plenty of dishes, silverware and pot & pans.
The walk to the beach takes about 5 minutes on a very easy to navigate crushed rock walkway. The beach is amazing as well.
The only reason I rated The Mermaid 4* is the bathroom setup and the stair case. I will say that we were sad to have to leave and really wanted to stay longer. We will be back.
The perfect place for us!
The mermaid is amazing. It was cozy and had more than the basics needed. Beautifully decorated with artisan features throughout. Metal work is amazing. Kitchen had every gadget one could need! We loved hot tubbing under the stars and sitting on the wood decks overlooking the pacific. The walk to the beach was further than I expected, but the short path was lovely. Rose, the owner, was also fantastic; she checked on us at arrival and then was available when we had to call with a question. We will definitely be back. Thanks for sharing this gem.
Stunning view. Private and cozy.
Great location between Cannon Beach and Manzanita made it easy to visit both areas. We loved the cozy house and all of the cool metal work. We like to stay in places that are unique and not like a generic hotel but still have nice kitchens because we love to cook - even on vacation. Very private location with no road noise - just the crashing surf. It was cool to be up so high instead of beachfront because you could really see the winter swells rolling in from a distance. Well appointed kitchen had all of the pots, pans and peelers that we needed. Everything was clean and beds were very comfortable. The hot tub was crystal clear and as nice as ours at home and the view from there was amazing. Sitting up so high also gave it the feel of an infinity pool to the ocean. I recommend this rental and will stay here again. Thank you for having us!
Wonderful, long beach
The walks along the beach were wonderful--particularly at low tide. The walk to the beach was very interesting including walking through a tunnel under Route #101. This section of beach is very quiet with few people. The cottage was well equipped and comfortably furnished. We are 83 years old and the circular stairs were no problem.
Lovely home with a view
Beautifully furnished and kitchen nicely equipped. Very well appointed home with a fabulous ocean view and a lovely private trail directly to the beach. The owners were very concerned everything was comfortable for us. Much appreciated.
The Arch cape beach offers incredible hikes with tidepools and unique geographic formations. When the tide is out, one can often hike on the beach North around hug point all the way to cannon beach.
