Some history of our property:

The Swenson Beachfront property has a unique history. Originally it was home to the famous York Fuchsia Gardens, in operation from the 1940's to 1960's. This flower nursery shipped over 1500 varieties of fuchsia throughout the USA. After closing in 1962, fuchsias, rhodies and shrubbery grew wild.

The Swenson family took ownership in 1988 and converted the property into our 'Garden of Weeden'. You can enjoy our heavily flowered grounds and create your own fresh flower arrangement. Feel free pull weeds too!

Love the easy beach access!!

  • 5 of 5

Cute cottage. Small 2 bedroom, shower only bath. The kitchen has all the items you could ever need. We brought some stuff just in case, but never needed it. The beds have nice, clean, soft, white linen's on them. We only used the one bed & found it comfortable. The sofa was a little uncomfortable, but that was fine for us, we spent most of the time on the beach. One day it was windy & rainy so we watched some movies, otherwise were out & about. We did explore Waldport, Seal Rock, Newport, & Lincoln City while there. Cute little towns, but not like a shopping town if you are looking for that. Just basic needs shops, surf shops, & such. There is an aquarium and glass museum but we did not look at either we just loved the beach & cottage. The drive thru coffee shop in Seal Rock has amazing bear claws so yummy, & are very friendly. The tide pools were very pretty & fun to explore. My dogs LOVED the quick access to the beach, as so did we. It was like 45 seconds from the door & you were on the sand we loved that!! We did have some neighbors with big (but nice) dogs. However my little ones wanted to bark at them (mine are awful). But the neighbors were nice and quiet. We still felt like we were in our own little world with them right next door. The sunsets are amazing, the people we ran into are very friendly. I highly recommend the tide pools very fun, and pretty. I hope to come back with nicer weather and explore for some agates, and just enjoy the beach even more.

The only thing I could possibly say that would of improved anything (which is very little) is, the stove when cooking could really use a fan, and the sliding door is very very hard to open. Otherwise it was a great time, cute cottage....My in laws and my parents are wanting to stay now, after listening to us rave about it.

We shall return!! :)

Also owner was great with communication as well which is very nice to have.

A place like no other ...

  • 5 of 5

Like a previous commenter pointed out, we are reluctant to share this one. We have been going for years now, and can't say enough good things about this home or its owner. The place is magical, the beach amazing. We always leave wondering just how soon we'll be able to return.

Best place I have rented on the coast yet!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property and cant wait to rent it again. It is wonderfully situated between Newport and Waldport. We spent our mornings on the beach (using our private beach access) and the afternoons exploring the region. The cabin is nestled in the trees with lovely landscaping so you dont even notice there are neighbors. You can enjoy the view of the ocean from the deck, the hammock, or, if the weather is not so nice, from the living room. The wifi is fast and reliable, and the washer/dryer is super practical to have on site. They even allowed our small dogs. A great place run by great people. Everyone was very easy to work with and super quick to respond to questions/issues. Really, this place is a find.

Beautiful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is amazing if you wish to escape crowds and enjoy an uncrowded beach. Fully equipped with beds so comfortable you can sink in the down pillows and comforter. The cabin is perfect for a couple or up to 4 people. Beautifully landscapped and hidden within the flowers and trees. A short walk to the beach and can hear the ocean while sitting on the front deck. Great place!

Shhhh

  • 5 of 5

I am reluctant to share this one, but since I rely on reviews, it is only fair that I offer my thoughts. Ideal location to beach, Waldport, Newport, etc. Great dog beach. Great internet and cable if you want or need. This is a cabin and not the Ritz, but for those of you who want to enjoy the beach, stay here and enjoy it. Walk the beach North to enjoy the rocks. Take a picnic, a snack, an adult beverage, etc. Most importantly take a camera and take your dogs. One note ofcaution: The trail to the beach is steep, thus be careful.

Awesome location and accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The best thing about this property is the privacy and location on the beach. You can sit on the deck and see the water and beach but be blocked from the wind. The beach itself is absolutely beautiful with nice sand and goes for miles. The accommodations are modern and well kept, with recent renovations. I particularly like the new bathroom, which can be an issue for some of us fussy people. All in all it was perfect and completely relaxing. The location is also close to New Port, Walport and Florence to check out.
