I'm Kay and my husband Ron and I own and manage this special beach cottage with landscaped backyard with hot tub. Perfect, romantic and whimsical. Serene.

We are a no pets/ no smoking vacation home.

LITTLE BIRDIE'S COTTAGE: A UNIQUE BEACH HOME: Immaculate! Cozy and Charming! Top-notch quality amenities! Filled with amazing antiques,vintage souvenirs and collectibles! This unique, historic (over 100 years old) home and landscaped yard have been beautifully maintained for 40 years by owners, Ron and Kay Slusarenko, a Portland Architect and Portland Artist.

IDEAL LOCATION: On a quiet street and one block to the beach! Close to everything!
So easy to walk to the river, to the ocean; to walk to the shopping outlet or to the downtown shops. So easy to walk to the Entertainment Center, to the Aquarium, and to the dozens of restaurants serving everything from freshly caught seafood to handmade pizzas.

Hop in the car and within 15 minutes (with scenic views) you are in Cannon Beach, or in the opposite direction, Astoria with all its beautiful Victorian architecture. And in-between are state parks, hiking, biking and walking trails with breathtaking views of the ocean.

THE COTTAGE: In the living room, the high gloss painted wood walls make this space light and airy. Comfortable furniture is a must. A secret door holds snow domes on glass shelves, collected abroad and around the USA. Everywhere you look are special collections, original artwork, and one of a kind vintage souvenirs.

The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances (including a gas stove, a dishwasher, toaster, a coffeemaker and a microwave) located next to charming collections from the 1940s and 1950s.

The compact bathroom has all the requirements; a toilet, a sink, mirror, and a sparkling clean shower with glass front doors. The space is stocked with lovely towel sets, shampoo, hand soaps, hair dryer, rolls of toilet paper, facial wipes and kleenex.

In the Twin Bedroom there is a reading library for adults and children. And if anyone wants to see a children's movie just open the bottom dresser drawer. You'll be able to select from several dozens of the best Disney films ever made. Lots of games and board games in this bedroom.

The Double Bed Bedroom has a comfy bed surrounded by paint-by-numbers hung on the wall. The bench in this bedroom has 2 purposes, one to allow guests to sit on it and two, to open up the bench seat and select one of over 300 DVDs and VHS movies! There are even more movies under the bench.

OUTDOORS: There is a two-seat Hot Tub (made in Oregon) for your enjoyment. This charming Spa is noted for providing therapeutic benefits; from physical to emotional stress relief, alleviating muscle pain to relieve arthritis and sore joints.

There is a pretty trellis with lights to turn on in the evenings, a gas BBQ (during the summer months), picnic table and outdoor furniture for everyone to enjoy both day and night. And the tree swing is always a favorite of young and old alike!

Birdie's Cottage is a destination for couples, those wishing to reconnect with friends, a get-away-from-the-city rejuvenator for the weekend, and a perfect environment to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary or a honeymoon.

We can't wait for you to visit!

Nearest Beach
Birdie's Cottage is one block to the beach!

Car: Not Necessary

Here's a few suggestions of must-do activities in Seaside for the entire family. But please know this is just a hint of what is possible!

I write a newsletter monthly that spells out the events of each month, suggests adventures of historical significance and current outdoor activities and the very best of indoor pleasures. In Seaside you are surrounded by biking and walking paths both in the nearby forests and along the oceanfront; the Necanicum River, the Pacific Ocean, clean sandy beaches, the famous promenade, the downtown shopping area plus the factory outlet (NO STATE TAX!) is just a nod to all the possibilities that I write about.

Seaside is where you can rent a surrey or a mountain bike, build sandcastles, throw frisbees, fly kites, play soccer and volleyball in the sand and dip your toes into the cool Pacific Ocean under the watchful eye of the summer lifeguard -on-duty.

I'll also tell you where to watch the surfers, find the best trails, the best food, the best clam chowder and fish and chips. Paddle boats, kayaks are waiting to be rented just a few blocks from the cottage. In fact, 90% of all these above-mentioned activities are within a few minutes walk or drive from our cottage! Last but not least is the importance of soaking up some historical information that makes the history of Seaside and the area come alive. Recognizing that Lewis and Clark walked through our neighborhood to reach the nearby ocean is pretty inspiring and nearby towns like Astoria are filled with museums and historical Victorian homes opened to the public. The Fort Clatsop Park and the hike from the Fort to the Sea Trail is only the beginning of a deeper understanding of our country's west coast history. And after hiking, shopping, eating, walking, surfing, body boarding, feeding the seals, playing in the sand you always have the perfect beach home to return to and soak in the hot tub, watch the sunset, decide which of the 400 plus movies from the video library collection you wish to watch and best of all to relax, enjoy and recharge.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: We are a Portland Architect and a Portland Artist who have owned Birdie's Cottage and Scout's Cottage since 1976. The two homes were built in the early 1900s and were part of a motor court with drive-in units. Sadly, a fire erupted one night and all but the main house and the laundry/fish cleaning unit were destroyed. We rescued these two buildings from being demolished and in the summer of 1976 we, along with our three young sons, started working to restore them. We focused on honoring their past and adding modern conveniences to make our guests feel welcomed and comfortable.

Why the Owner Chose Seaside, OR, USA:
We are in love with the North side of Seaside. This is where the nicest neighborhoods are located without any condos or hotels/motels to disturb your peace and quiet. You have blocks of serene little streets that are so charming to walk or ride a bike through on your way to nearby downtown Seaside or to the Ocean front.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I especially love the fact that we are on a dead end street. This means that when staying in one of our two cottages you can sleep serenely and not have to deal with excessive noise. This fact is repeated often in our guests' reviews and is one of the main reasons that our guests are attracted to our vacation homes.
