About the Property

Comfy 4 Bedroom 3 Bathroom Home 1 Block To Beach

Extensive 2015 remodel in this attractive three level home good for families or couples wanting some privacy. Ground floor queen bed as well as a fold out couch allow for 4 to sleep in one room. This room has a large flatscreen TV and gas fireplace creating a cozy atmosphere. There is also a bathroom with tile shower on this floor. A modern kitchen and open living area on the 2nd floor capture views of the ocean and access to a west-facing and south deck with BBQ. This floor also has a small TV room that serves as a bedroom with foldout couch, and a bathroom with 2 sinks and a claw foot bathtub, and adjoining large capacity laundry room. The 3rd floor has the master bedroom, west-facing to see Haystack. The other bedroom has 2 queen beds and a reading nook, also with Haystack view, and antique furniture. The top floor bathroom has an attractive tile shower, & skylight. Your "must have wi-fi" members will enjoy high speed connection with good reception in all locations of the home. Flat screen TV and a nice sound system on the 2nd floor offering iPod or iPhone connection to play Pandora selections, if desired. TV in master bedroom and ground floor as well.
This was a family home for 30 yrs, chosen by my mother, Dorothy. Though she's gone now, the many years we enjoyed visiting this home have great memories. We hope that by sharing this unique home and nice location with others, you might develop similar fond memories of Cannon Beach and the time spent in this home.

Car: Recommended

Cannon Beach is a favorite Oregon Coast beach, well known for spectacular scenery, and a welcoming town with interesting shopping. The beach has miles of sand, welcoming the contemplative stroller and serious runner alike. Rent beach trikes for faster exploration and excitement.

The beach is a great playground for kite enthusiasts and Frisbee/football throwers. It is a romantic and magical place that draws couples wanting to reconnect, and families looking for a destination with enough interest for all members.

Haystack Rock is a well-recognized monolith, home to many Puffins. At low tide, witness sea anemones and starfish which live in tide pools at the base of Haystack Rock. Often, park rangers or other volunteers are present to educate about this ecosystem.

Cannon Beach is well know by 'foodies' who come to the beach to enjoy the numerous options for excellent cuisine.

Bill's Tavern and Brew House creates some fine beers-take some home in a growler, or enjoy a meal and beer in the brew house.

Numerous nearby parks including Ecola, Indian Creek, Hug Point offer great exploring and sight-seeing opportunities. Nearby Seaside has a fun pinball arcade, bumper cars and an older, but very interesting aquarium, with seals that will splash water on you if you don't feed them quickly enough.

Nearby towns of Manzanita, Nehalem and Tillamook have more shops, restaurants, unique, scenic beaches, and even a cheese factory offering tours.

There is no end to the relaxed exploration and beauty of this destination. Come see for yourself!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Hi, we are Karl & Kelly, co-owners of The Dorothy Lou. We are native Washingtonians & we enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, boating, good music and good food often shared with family or friends. We're experienced property managers, having operated a Hood River VRBO vacation home for 20 years. We bring those skills and customer service to this home in Cannon Beach, OR.

Why the Owner Chose Cannon Beach, OR, USA:
Cannon Beach is a long time favorite destination of ours, and Karl's mother, Dorothy, purchased this home in 1980 when her mother died. On Dorothy's passing in 2013, we just couldn't sell the home, so we decided to buy it, patch up some neglected items, and use it as a vacation rental. To honor my mother's memory and her affection for Cannon Beach, we've named the home after her.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
From the home, it is just a short walk to the beach, and situated away from the more crowded area of Cannon Beach proper. Haystack is in sight & just a 10 minute stroll away. You'll also enjoy quick access to Highway 101.
