About Wendy Johnson

Our grandmother raised chickens during WWII and after the war was over she converted the chicken house to a guest cottage. She wanted to call the house the Garden Cottage but her grandchildren always called it the Chicken House. Though we've completely renovated the cottage it will always remain the 'Chicken House'. Our grandmother's original house is just to the south over the fence. She had one of the first houses in Gearhart right on the beach.

Great beach house, awesome location!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED the location of this beach home. Trail to the beach, and also only a block away from access to drive on the beach. The house had a lot of amenities I had no idea about. The cupboards are full of cooking spices, pots and pans, utensils. It was awesome! The rooms were great and fit all of our needs! The kids' room was perfect! We will definitely be staying here again.

Great weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a great razor clamming weekend at The Chicken House in Gearhart. We were so surprised to find our easy walk to the beach, great trips to downtown Gearhart to find the most amazing Bakery - what a weekend! We wanted for nothing (maybe sharper knives) and totally relaxed in this fun house with great history. The neighbors were nice too! We are already scheduling for next year. A bonus is the number of sand dollars you can find on this beach!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place. 6 of of stayed and there was plenty of room. Really like the layout of the house. There is a nice deck out back and a very large yard. We've stayed at other places in Gearhart and this is head and shoulders above the others. Can't wait to stay here again in the future.

Car: recommended

The house is just a short stroll down a semi-private path to the beach and a few minutes walk to Gearhart's quaint town center. Golfing and McMenamin's Sandtrap Bar and Grill are just .2 miles away. Park your car and walk to everything or take a quick 4 mile drive into Seaside to enjoy the boardwalk. Take in gorgeous views 13 miles south at Ecola State Park. Have lunch in Cannon Beach. Surfing spots and beach combing opportunities abound.
