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 three 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 Arch Cape

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.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Cannot rave about this place enough. I slept better here than I do in my own bed! Aesthetics are amazing, and the owners worked with us to make sure we could do what we needed to hold our handfasting celebration here.

Wounderful home in the woods.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this home as well as its location. From being surround by trees in a woodland setting to a short walk to the open beach was perfect for those who want both atmospheres. The kitchen was very well appointed with everything we needed for preparing our meals (even though the cabinets were too high for my wife to put dishes away)! Great beach and not at all crowded. With the store located at the south end of Cannon Beach it made for a quick trip for both food and early morning coffee.

Perfect cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We loved fernhaven, the location was perfect for our wedding weekend. We were able to have easy beach access along with being tucked in the wood for sweet bon fires and grill outs! We loved the open lay out of the house, lots of room for everyone to have there own space! The jacuzzi tub was also very relaxing for the night before our wedding!

We would love to go back and stay next year for our anniversary!
