About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Home Just Blocks From The Beach

Fernhaven is a warm and spacious vacation home tucked into the woods just two 'blocks' from the beach at Arch Cape. Marvelous hikes and stunning beaches are just minutes away. With four bedrooms, a spacious kitchen, living room, dining room, and comfy den with entertainment center, Fernhaven is perfect for family gatherings and group excursions with friends. Couples too find its cozy seclusion romantic.

Fernhaven’s two stories offer four bedrooms- but there’s also a convertible sofa bed for larger parties. Both bathrooms feature radiant floor heating. You’ll find it’s so nice to step out of the jacuzzi tub onto toasty-warm tile floors.

The kitchen is large, beautifully appointed, and stocked with utensils, pans, and dishes- everything you need for preparing gourmet meals. It’s equipped with new appliances including a dishwasher. Although our wooded lot keeps Fernhaven secluded and quiet, from the kitchen you can catch a glimpse of Castle Rock out there in the Pacific, through the trees.

The kitchen opens into the living room, separated by a bar with stools, in case you need more seating than the dining table can provide. The dining table itself seats from 6 to 10 people- there are plenty of extra chairs in the walk-in pantry, if you need them. The living room has a large sectional sofa, a piano, a stereo system, and a wood stove to make it extra cozy.

Fernhaven's entertainment center includes a large flatscreen, DVD player, and Roku player. We do not subscribe to cable or satellite at this time. The DVD collection there is quite modest, so bring some movies if you think you might want to snuggle up with one some evening! Other amenities include Wi-fi, an outdoor charcoal grill, and a washer/dryer.

It’s very easy and quite tempting to spend all of your time inside cozy Fernhaven, cooking with friends and sipping wine by the fire, but there’s a beautiful world just outside! Hug Point, one of the most magical and beautiful beaches on the west coast is just a quick jaunt away, as is Neahkahnie Mountain, whose 1,680’ elevation will reward you with spectacular views, if you make the climb. Experienced mushroom hunters will be delighted to explore after the rains, as you can barely follow a trail without stumbling on a delicious score. Or you can just walk a few steps to the beach at Arch Cape, build a fire, and watch the sunset.

There are dozens of excellent hikes in the area, and the northern Oregon coast likewise offers too many beautiful beaches to list here. As hard as it will be to leave lovely Fernhaven to explore, you’ll be rewarded with lush coastal rainforests and magical Oregon beaches when you do. And after such adventures, there’s no better place to come home to! We look forward to hosting you here.

GETTING TO THE BEACH FROM FERNHAVEN: It is a short walk to the beach at Arch Cape, thanks to a lovely little access staircase between two beachfront houses. It may be hard to see from Google Maps since it's under a plant-covered archway, but thanks to those stairs it is a pretty straight shot from Fernhaven to the beach. Crossing 101 is safe- just practice common sense like looking both ways and leashing your pets. The traffic on this stretch of road is rather infrequent and it's very easy to access the beach from our wooded lot. It's exactly 0.23 miles from the front door to the sand, under a quarter of a mile.

Why Zoli Lundy chose Northern Coast

Fernhaven was first dreamt of nearly 40 years ago when architect Tod Lundy purchased the wooded lot in quiet Arch Cape. The dream was realized in 2009, when Tod and his two sons, Zoli and Justin, built Fernhaven together. They co-manage the house from Astoria, Oakland, and Portland respectively, and love to visit each other at Fernhaven with their extended family.

Tod was first attracted to this little piece of land because of the giant nurse log that the house is set behind. The wooded lot sets a secluded, quiet mood even though it’s just minutes from shopping, dining, spas, and beaches.

Fernhaven At Arch Cape: Where The Rainforest Meets The Sea

What a beautiful visit!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the stay at Fernhaven and want to come back often! Three min beautiful serene walk to the beach and close drive to Seaside, Cannon Beach, Manzanita and Nehalem. We used the piano and filled that house with music! Loved the jetted tub and the beautiful forest and ocean views out every window. Since it's April we really enjoyed campfires 🔥 in the fire pit. The only complaint was a bed that sinks in the middle. Other than that it was perfect!

I would suggest The Lazy Susan for breakfast and Buttercup lavender lemonade in Nehalem.

Dress warm if you're going in April!

Great except an ant problem

  • 2 of 5

The house was beautiful and very close to the beach. We did encounter an ant problem inside the house and I hope the owners do something about this. We did let them know via email, however, no response. It did create much of an inconvenience for us as when we were in the house we were constantly killing ants..they were quite large. If the owners take care of this problem I would recommend the house 100%.

Wonderful house beautiful all around.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the house was wonderful, the owners were great, paintings were beautiful and I'm guessing done by family judging by the signature on them. Very welcoming place, only downfall was learning how bad vaulted ceilings, loft, and loud kids mix haha

Beautiful house, secluded get away

  • 5 of 5

We will be back! Beautifully designed and built, Fernhaven was all we could have hoped for. The setting is magical! We had four adults and a dog and still had plenty of room for more. We were also there during a storm and stayed warm the whole time. Was pleasantly surprised with all of the coffee making gear. I had brought my own french press and grinder just in case, but they had it covered. Regular drip machine (no filters needed), blade grinder, french press and even a little espresso machine- just bring your beans! Convection oven worked great- we baked a cake from scratch and roasted veggies. Bring charcoal for the grill and your own firewood (some there, but still green). Overall well run with thoughtful details. Thank you!

We had a spectacular time in Arch Cape to ring in the New Year! This property is truly a hidden gem and we are incredibly grateful for the time we spent here.

Much of my dissatisfaction came from the cleanliness of the property. when we arrived we found the duvets to be stained and food bowls underneath the bed ( I imagine from a precious guest). Regardless, we made the best of it and used the laundry facility to "clean" up.
