Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This treasure is unmatched for a traditional retreat to the beach. A mile south of downtown Cannon Beach and less than a city block’s walk to the sand, you can enjoy easy access to whatever your heart desires.

The Horner Beach House was built in 1928 to take advantage of the best view of Haystack Rock and the Needles. One of the original homes on the hill, the view includes an expansive panorama of the ocean as well as easy access to the beach. The house has just undergone an extensive remodel, preserving the beach cottage ambiance while ensuring that modern amenities make your experience comfortable.

There are several nesting pairs of bald eagles living in the hills behind the beach house. They fly directly overhead on their way to hunt on Haystack Rock. A fantastic spectacle! Haystack Rock is the best place on the coast to see Tufted Puffins from April to August. The Rock also hosts breeding Western Gull, Pelagic Cormorant, Pigeon Guillemot and Black Oystercatcher, Halequin Duck, Brown Pelican, and Peregrine Falcon seen in summer and Greater Scaup and Surf Scoter in Winter.

About Peggy Amato

When we were kids we used to go to Cannon Beach because our neighbors had a house there. Relatives from North Dakota were treated with trips to the beach whenever they visited. After the death of our father, our mom bought this house in 1974 looking forward to spending her retirement at the beach she so loved. It was a favorite spot for family and friends alike. Mom wanted to share this beautiful spot with friends and began renting. We are happy to continue making the house available for others to enjoy.

                                                        Absolutely lovely beach cottage which has been in the family for generations. Complete restored

                                                        Rebecca H.Springfield IL

                                                        This was the perfect place for a milestone birthday celebration with family ... many who had not been together for 35 years. Our beach cottage was beautiful with views of Haystack Rock all around. Extremely well kept, clean and was well appointed from kitchen items to linens. We were 100% pleased and would recommend to all. Will definitely return.

                                                        The PetrysLake Oswego, OR

                                                        This is a wonderful cottage with great views and easy access to the beach and scenic rock formations just south of Cannon Beach. We walked along the beach into town one day -- about a 2 mile round trip. Has everything stocked in the kitchen you need to eat in, or you can walk to the Pelican Brewery for dinner in 10 minutes.

                                                        Location, location, location!!!

                                                        Andrew F.Salem, OR

                                                        What a perfect vacation home! This cozy house was still plenty of space for our family of 5. Easy beach access and easy access to town. Must go to Sleepy Monk Coffee for a wonderful variety of quality coffee with friendly staff. The house is loaded with puzzles, board games, beach toys, chairs and anything else you might need! We had a wonderful time and would love to stay here again the next time we are in Cannon Beach!

                                                        Perfect home and location!

                                                        Heather E.Bloomington, IN

                                                        We had a fabulous week at the beach house. Everything you could ever need, spotless home and surprisingly close location to the beach. A tiny walk down a steep little drive and you're on the sand! We loved the gas fireplace - both for ambiance and for warming the entire house. The deck is perfect for feeling the sea air on your face and listening to the waves. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! We lucked out in March with lots of sun and one day at 70 - can't even imagine how glorious it would be in the summer.

                                                        Beautiful cottage with an amazing view!

                                                        We loved this little beach cottage! It is obvious that it was restored with lots of love and attention to detail. It was clean, comfortable and well located. The kitchen was well stocked, the fireplace kept us cozy and the beds were super comfortable. Definitely one of our all time favorite VRBOs! We hope to visit again for a longer stay.
