About the property

2 bedroom Cottage

'Oz West' is a delightful 2 bedroom cottage (1,100sq ft.) ideally located between Cannon Beach and Manzanita. This private, peaceful retreat abuts Oswald West State Park and is nestled amidst trees with a private creek running through the backyard. Beach access is a breeze. The ocean is less than a 2 block stroll and awesome surfing is a quick 2 miles away.

The cottage charms you with fir floors, bead board, a light-filled sunroom, skylights throughout, and a gas fireplace for cozy beach evenings. All this comfort opens onto a backyard with a creek. Fall asleep to its gentle babble and wake to the sound of bird song.

Upstairs boasts a big bedroom with a queen bed and the downstairs bedroom hosts a full-sized bed. The cottage has 2 living areas to spread out and enjoy. The vaulted living room has a generous sectional sofa so everyone can watch movies on the DVD player and large, flat screen TV while enjoying the warmth of a gas fireplace. Or kickback in the light-filled sunroom that overlooks the sunny, private backyard and creek. The kitchen is charming, well-stocked, and ample. There is a small full bath downstairs (shower) and a 1/2 bath in the sunroom.

A washer & dryer are in the detached garage waiting to help you clean up at the end of a busy, fun-filled day. There is an artist in residence who lives in a studio above the detached garage.

This is a charming, unique, and delightful get-away filled with warmth, style, and comfort. We wash all the bedding between guests (duvet covers, mattress pads, shams, & sheets)! No more than 4 people (includes babies & kids).

The cottage is the perfect oasis for couples who want more space, two couples to share together, or a family with kids who want easy safe access to the beach and the fun of a backyard. Come stay with us and renew your spirit.

Why Tammy chose Arch Cape

This was our first property - we got married and came home here, we raised our son here (part of his life). We sweated and lovingly restored this home.

What makes this cottage unique

The setting is so unique - how many places do you know which you can be on a creek (steel-head, salmon some years, birds, and otters) and so close to the ocean. Arch Cape is beautiful and surrounded by State Parks, the Oregon Coastal Trail, and the great villages of Cannon Beach and Manzanita.

Cutest Creek side Vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Loved, loved, loved this place. The creek is charming, the main bathroom has recently been updated, the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need and the decor is to die for. The bedrooms were outfitted with the comfiest sheets, so much so, that I actually took photos of the labels so I could buy them for my house! One request: coverings on all the bedroom windows, as it gets bright in the morning.

Will definitely stay here again! Looking forward to coming in the summer!

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect! The property is midway between Cannon Beach and Manzanita, so it's away from all the tourist activity but is close enough to both towns for easy access to shops and restaurants, and a large, beautiful, uncrowded beach is only a short walk away. The house is surprisingly quiet for being so close to Hwy 101 and is a cozy place to spend a few days at the coast. The beds are comfortable, linens are luxurious, the kitchen is well equipped, and everything is very clean. This is a wonderful cottage, and I will be back!

Clean, charming, lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

I just stayed here with my parents and sister and we had an amazing visit. The house slept 4 very comfortably, was very clean and beautifully decorated. It was simply charming. It is situated on a beautiful creek and just a short walk (2 blocks) from a gorgeous beach. We had planned to go to Cannon Beach when we wanted some beach time but ended up spending almost all our time at the beach near the house as it was more private and had some beautiful coves to explore. Our visit was so relaxing and just what we needed. We will definitely be back.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This home is gorgeous, the kitchen is wonderful - sharp knives and all the machinery to make meals at home. The backyard is so charming and great for kids. It is a very short walk to a gorgeous beach that is not very populated at all (especially compared to CB). When the tide is out there is a great cave/rocky area to explore for kids. My husband and i were staying here for a few nights with our baby. We have family that own in Cannon Beach whom we hosted for dinner and everyone loved it! Highly recommend, this place was perfection for us.

Comfortable cottage close to beach and amenities

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this well equipped Arch Cape cottage. Plenty of space for 2 couples, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, quiet location, easy walk to the beach. Quick drive to Manzanitta Beach for supplies. Also close to Cannon Beach. Home lacks outdoor furniture. There is a large deck but only 2 outdoor chairs. Would have been nice if there was an outdoor table and chairs for meals and 2 more lounging chairs.
