Property description

HISTORIC BIRDIE'S Cottage:
Perfect for up to three guests.
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom.
New outdoor Therapeutic SPA!
We are a no pets/ no smoking vacation home.

I only charge one fee, other than my nightly fee, and that is the housekeeper's fee. This entire fee goes to Barb, who has been with us since day one and who makes sure our home is immaculate for each guest. We DON'T have handling (or manager) fees, Spa fees, or additional guests fees.

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 15-18 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, 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 over a dozen of the best Disney's 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 200 DVDs and VHS movies! There are even more movies under the bench.

OUTDOORS: There is a two-seat SPA (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, picnic table and outdoor furniture for every one 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!

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.
