Ocean View Retreat Nestled in Forest -- Cozy, Serene, Private

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-5)

Welcome! Nestled in the Siuslaw forest on the Central Oregon Coast, our cottage sits on several acres of private property with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. Designed and outfitted as a place to let-go, relax and reconnect with yourself and nature, our cottage can be enjoyed solo, with a lover, family or friends.

The cottage is newly remodeled with top-of-the-line appliances, tasteful decor and beautiful woodwork. The floor plan is open, creating an environment of togetherness. There are large windows throughout the cottage, allowing the beauty of outside nature to be enjoyed inside.

Off of the living area is a private bedroom with one queen size bed that overlooks the ocean. Around the corner, a full-size European bath awaits your pleasure – candles and bubbles welcome! For nights enjoyed by hearth, there is a wood-stove in the main room stocked with firewood and an electronic fireplace in the bedroom.

For outside dining and relaxation, there is a wrap around deck and two terraces with ample seating and dining areas. These are the best places to enjoy the sunshine, fresh air and sounds of nature! When the temperature drops, there is an outside heater on the deck.

We call our cottage Sans Souci – French for ‘without worry or trouble’. We’ve designed and outfitted our cottage to accommodate a visit truly without worry. It’s an attitude and experience we hope you realize here and are able to take with you when you leave.

Magical Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. The beautiful photos posted still do not do it justice as it has a 180 degree view of the ocean. My husband and I enjoyed our magical time there through sunrises, mid-day, sunsets, and even rainstorms inside by the cozy wood stove. We had planned to stay two nights, but ended up staying four as we couldn't bear to leave - and fortunately those two nights were available! Definitely recommend !!!

I've travelled A LOT around the world and this has to be one of the most special places I've ever stayed. The views and the privacy are stunning.

A wonderful place to escape and relax

  • 5 of 5

A simple but comfortable home in an amazing setting on a big hill overlooking the ocean - a special garden, well maintained to explore and find places out of the wind, when it comes...a very special place to stay. Thank you Donia and James - all of it was very much appreciated.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at this quiet and romantic cottage and we both felt that pretty much nothing was left to be desired. The location is isolated and private while still being conveniently close to Florence, the cottage is comfortably equipped for relaxed living and tastefully decorated with sophisticated art, and the large surrounding forest and Pacific Ocean beyond are cinematically beautiful. We stayed a whole week and by the end did not want to leave. We enjoyed the standalone claw foot bathtub in the evenings and grilled steaks on the deck with a bottle of wine at night, then settled down for a good movie beside a fire in the old fashioned stove before bed. In the mornings we hiked through the mountains beside the 101 and then drove into Florence for shopping and ice cream. The wildlife was abundant; we saw elk, whitetail deer, and even a black bear mother and her cub. We really had an amazing time and hope to return again some day.

Peace in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely place. The view is stunning! You would never know it's just a short trip to town. The elk came morning and evening. We Barbecued in the rain and cooked crab in the stove. There was plenty of wood for the fire. Oops they forgot to stock TP and the dryer wouldn't start. All in all though it was lovely and look forward to return. The owner and caretaker were very kind. Thank you!
