Step in the door and the first response is 'relax'!

This elegant home is located in a gated community, adjacent to a public golf course, with beautiful ocean and mountain views and a short walk to the beach.

As you enter the home, you see a family room with wet bar, large TV and gas-log fireplace, providing a view of the backyard and golf course. Right off the entry is a reading/card game room. Three of the four bedrooms are located on this floor, including an en-suite 'junior master'. A lower deck with stairs to the backyard can be accessed from the family room or the 'junior master' bedroom. Continue up the stairs to the main living area. The living room has a TV and built-in sound system, gas-log fireplace, formal dining room, gourmet kitchen and informal eating area. On the upper deck, there is a gas BBQ and eating area which overlooks the golf course and provides a view toward the coast range. The master bedroom includes its own bathroom with Jacuzzi and walk-in shower. It also has a private deck. With three full bathrooms and a guest powder room, four bedrooms with accommodations for more, the home comfortably works for 8-10 occupants, with maximum occupants of 10.

This home provides an elegant retreat from your hectic life. Wake up with a hot cup of coffee or tea, while enjoying the glorious coastal sunrise over the mountains. Spend your day with the many nearby activities available. In the evening, pour yourself a glass of wine, sit by the fireplace and enjoy the sunset with a beautiful view of the ocean, right from the comfort of the living room. Later on, reminisce over the day’s adventures, read, enjoy a movie, play a game, work a puzzle.

Please note the links to all the near-by attractions and activities.

Close by: The small, quiet town of Gearhart is only a mile’s walk from the house—a little longer by the beach. Enjoy a morning walk and justify having a pastry at Pacific Way Bakery – also a great restaurant for lunch or dinner just next door. There is a reasonably well-stocked grocery store and fun shops to browse. The Gearhart golf course is about a half mile and there is a Mc Menamin’s restaurant in the club house serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Cook or don’t, be active or not – it’s all here to enjoy.

Highlands Retreat 90th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

The Highlands Retreat is a beautiful property that is casually elegant, very well maintained, and very clean. It fit our family perfectly for a weekend celebration of my mothers 90th birthday. We loved that you could see the ocean from the front windows and the golf course and mountains from the rear. It was quiet and very peaceful. The walk to the beach was easy. It was a perfect beach house.

I would recommend the Pacific Way restaurant in downtown (such as it is) Gearhart for excellent food and would stay away from McMenamins at the old Gearhart hotel due to it's very poor food.

The 9 hole golf course is fun, especially for beginner golfers and it is nice that you can walk into the house at one of the greens in case you need more refreshments.

I would recommend it to friends and would stay there again if we visit Gearhart.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at the Highland house during salmon season and loved every minute! Stacy let us check in 2 hours early, which was wonderful after camping for 4 nights! The house was equipped with everything we needed including laundry soap! The beds were comfortable and the views from upstairs great, even though the house isn't beachfront. The house was clean, which is huge for me! There were even deer running around on the golf course behind the house; just an overall great stay! Thank you

Perfect home away from home for any time of the year

  • 5 of 5

This home is comfortably elegant and furnished with taste and warmth. The home owners welcomed us with a hand written note, a decorated Christmas tree and wine & bubbly. Every room was well equipped, perfect for a family of ten - twelve (give or take an extra little one or two) with comfortable beds, crisp linens, warm blankets and perfect pillows. The kitchen had more than enough tools to prepare a Christmas dinner and cookies for Santa. Electronics were easy to control and plentiful. The views were phenomenal. To watch the day begin on the second floor living room was a genuine treat. I can only imagine that this home is even more wonderful in the summer months. The home is well built and sound insulated so that even the sneakiest tots had an easy time getting past a snoozing nana and papa - but not for long. Everything about this home was perfect. We appreciate the opportunity that the owners gave us in extending our stay by an additional day. Grounds and golf course were superb! Well maintained and Mr. Brown at the Pro Shop is our favorite guy. The rental management team was beyond compare. So very easy to contact and willing to discuss any concerns or questions we had. And more than willing to accommodate our needs when refrigeration posed a very slight problem. I can only say thank you for this wonderful opportunity. Great folks!
