About Sage Lurie

My husband and I both work in the healthcare field and greatly appreciate the availability of having a home away from home to relax & unwind. I love coming to the beach for long walks with my french bulldog, quiet time attending to the yard and the enjoyment of leisurely meals. We love Manzanita for it's small charm, fewer crowds that other nearby beach towns and the farmers market is a huge plus in the summer.

Sage Lurie purchased this house in 2013

Why Sage Lurie chose Northern Coast

The home is nicely situated within walking distance to desired locations and yet still tucked far enough away to avoid the crowds! The Owls Nest Cottage has been creativity decorated and arranged by myself & my family with the intention of having visitors feel relaxed & comfortable. I want guests to have the amenities needed to cook a large meal, quiet time away from the city and the comfort of a home setting.

What makes this house unique

Foosball table, large movie collection and lending library. Privately owned giving guests a feel of "staying at grandma's" instead of a commercial operated hotel chain.

Cozy, tidy place in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The Owl's Nest was a cozy, clean spot for our family of 5. All the basics are provided for, and the location is GREAT! Easily walkable to Laneda and to the beach, even for our youngest. The price is perfect for this place. Very simple, but well-kept with comfy beds. The wood stove in the main room adds to the ambiance. The owner was really kind and great to work with as well!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here during spring break. It worked well for 2 adults and 2 children. We enjoyed the windows in the kitchen (they let in nice light) and the comfortable furnishings. We would love to return and would recommend this home to anyone!

Quaint little cottage near everything in quiet little neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Quiet welcoming neighborhood within walking distance of quaint downtown and beach. The house is one level with only a couple entry stairs, making it fairly easy for those who struggle with stairs. We enjoyed the wood stove and a quiet couple of evenings together here. A great little simple and practical retreat off the beaten path.

Best Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Owls Nest is the best place to stay in Manzanita! The location is great .... close to both town and the beach. Nicely located a couple of blocks away from all the hustle and bustle, which is perfect for a quiet evening by the fire-pit! If the weather turns stormy and you want to stay inside, you can enjoy watching a movie by the fireplace or playing table games in the garage. This house is spacious so you never feel crowded, plus it has every amenity you need for a short or long stay on the coast. The owner is wonderful to work with and she really cares to make your trip special! My family highly recommends staying at The Owls Nest!!

We loved the Owl's Nest!

  • 5 of 5

Lets start with the location... perfect!

It was a quick walk to the shops and restaurants downtown and an easy walk directly to the ocean! Waking up and walking to the ocean, what a delightful treat.

The house itself is super cozy and charming. You can tell it is well cared for! It included everything you could need: wood burning stove, fully equipped kitchen, games, movies and music.

The owner was very sweet and easy to contact. There were very clear instructions, so we knew exactly what to expect during our stay.

It was definitely a sweet home away from home and I am looking forward to returning soon!
