Property description

Listen to the quiet…
Do this for yourself. Our year-round private retreat has magnificent 180-degree views. Three sides of the large windows and deck are west and south-facing, overlooking sunsets, the ocean and miles of forest. Newly built in 2011, we have furnished this cozy but contemporary 900 sq ft 1 bedroom, 1 bath home as a pristine getaway. It is located 500 feet above the valley, with southern exposure. Three sides of windows and decks show off a view from many vantage points. It is likely the most elegant “tree house” you have ever seen. SUNSET MAGAZINE featured it as one of 3 BEST PLACES ON THE OREGON COAST in the "Call of the Oregon Coast" issue of September 2012.

Best features: The cabin is sited to take advantage of the incredible views and feeling of peace. In the Spring and Fall deer and elk will be wandering the property (patiently watch during the early morning or evening hours.) The deep bathtub has a skylight to see the stars, and two large windows with a forest view. Total relaxation... The cabin was custom designed so that every room has a full view of this stunning part of the Oregon coast.

One large bedroom with a wonderful ocean view, Queen Temperpedic-style mattress, a tub with hand-held shower head with forest views. The TV (with many DVDs to choose from) is set up to watch cozily from the bed. THE BEDROOM AND BATH ARE ON THE SECOND FLOOR. Contemporary minimal style, large windows on three sides of the cabin, full kitchen, deck.... Check the reviews! Our guests love this cabin. There is also a small office where you can write or read.

The modern kitchen has brand new stainless appliances, views as you cook, and lots of dishes, pots/pans, and an electric coffee maker. (Please note that there is no microwave. And we do not have WiFi in the cabin, although the 3G connection is excellent. And Wifi is easily accessible at the café in Neskowin.)

The cabin sits high above a large, forested valley, with just a few other homes It is just one mile north of the lovely, small beach village of Neskowin, along the north/central Oregon Coast, a 2-hour drive from Portland. NOTE: There are only a handful of residents in this area, and it is a ONE-LANE GRAVEL ROAD FOR ONE MILE. Please considerf this sounds too remote for you...it is one mile from HWY 101, and another one mile to the village of Neskowin. www.greenflashcabin.com

Sunset Magazine recommended our cabin as one of three best places to stay along the gorgeous Oregon Coast, in the September 2012 edition, 'The Call of the Oregon Coast.'

TWO-PERSON MAXIMUM. NO DOGS ALLOWED.
Keep in mind that the location of this cabin is one mile east of Hwy 101, sitting up high along a valley that has few residents. It has a one-lane gravel road that cannot be found by GPS. (I have explicit directions, of course!) If this sounds too remote for you, then you may want to be closer in to town. But if it sounds appealing, it is honestly just fantastic. It is two miles to the beach.

This is a retreat destination, without the ammenities of a microwave, WiFi or cable TV (although 3G access is very good). There is a TV for watching our large collection of DVD movies. The claw foot soaking tub with a side-mounted faucet has a flexible head for 'showering' while in the tub, but does NOT have a stand-up shower head or surround. We have a brand new electric range with oven. In addition, there is a dishwasher, electric coffee maker and toaster, plus plenty of dishes. While in the kitchen you are surrounded by views of miles of unspoiled wilderness.

The 'Green Flash' is an atmospheric phenomenon that, when the conditions are just right, you will actually see a very bright lime green flash - similar to a light bulb flash - right at the moment when the sun drops below the horizon at sunset. I have seen this only once during my many years at the coast. It was truly memorable...

Just a 5-minute drive to the village of Neskowin, you’ll be far from the beach shops and boardwalks of larger beach towns. In Neskowin you will find one golf course, one grocery store, one art gallery and one wonderful café – the only commercial businesses. Enjoy 7 miles of gorgeous beach walking, evening bonfires, surfing, skim boarding and tide pool exploring. Within a beautiful 10-mile drive is Pacific City, where there are numerous fun shops, galleries, restaurants, a surf shop, another wide and walkable beach, plus the tide pools and hiking of unique Cape Kiwanda.

This beautiful part of the north/central Oregon Coast is just a two-hour drive southwest of Portland, between Lincoln City and Pacific City, north of Cascade Head. There are many hikes, shops and restaurants within a ten mile drive - either north to Pacific City or south to Lincoln City. This is a wonderful, scenic part of the Oregon Coast, with access to incredible headland hiking and long sandy beaches. You can walk for miles.

Check out Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, a most wonderful facility located along the south side of Cascade Head. They offer a wide array of classes and workshops all summer. (about a 7- mile drive)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: After living in Neskowin for 13 years, I moved to Portland with my family in 1991. I am a silversmith who handcrafts jewelry, and also manages several vacation rentals in addition to my own. I love my job, gardening, kayaking, biking, hiking, spending time with my dog, and taking off for a few days at the coast.

Why the Owner Chose Neskowin, OR, USA:
Neskowin is a small, special place that has changed little in the 30 years since I lived in and now visit the area. It is quaint, friendly, relaxed, has headlands, a long beach, eagles, majestic forests, hiking trails....everything you would want in a coast village.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Time, quiet, privacy, beauty, nature, peace, sunsets, tidepools, elk, deer, eagles, reading on the deck, dozing on the couch, walking on the beach. Time, quiet, privacy. It is a 5-minute drive to the beach and village where there is one cafe, one small store, and access to the beach. Keep your eyes peeled for seals in the surf and sand dollars on the beach. I even found a whale vertebrae in the sand a few years ago!
