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 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.

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house is so well organized and laid out. Just the right size for two families of 4 to kick back and relax. Gearhart was adorable and the beach was great too. We loved our stay at the Chicken House!

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.
