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 Manzanita

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!

Perfect weekend beach stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay at the Owl's nest! This was our first time visiting Manzanita, and this little cottage made the perfect home base for our little getaway. The house is very comfortable, clean and well-stocked with everything we needed. My son loved playing with the board games and exploring in the back yard. We ate in most nights, and found everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare our meals. The bed was very comfortable, and made with a nice supply of warm blankets. The cottage is only a few blocks from downtown shops and restaurants, and so close to the beach! We spent our mornings exploring downtown and walking along the beautiful sandy beach. Sage was extra attentive to our needs, and made sure we were well prepared with all necessary information prior to our stay. We loved our time here, and will definitely be back!

Coziest beach home!

  • 5 of 5

What a treat to get to stay in this home! We felt instantly at ease walking thru the door. Super clean and cute, we wish we booked another night. Location is fabulous, we walked to town and to the beautiful beach. The owner was very quick to respond and gave great recommendations. Definitely want to come back in the summer so we can utilize the yard.

Wonderful Home in Manzanita

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time traveling to the cozy Oregon coastal town of Manzanita. I could not have been happier with the house and town itself. Even in the middle of winter (it snowed the first night I was there!) it was equal parts warm, cozy and charming. Sage is a great host! Can not wait to visit again.

Very comfortable and relaxing weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

The home is very comfortable and relaxing. Enjoyed the patio in the filtered sunshine for reading and relaxing. Wonderful night's sleep in the sleighbed. Perfectly situated for walking to beach, restaurants, shops...but just enough away from the foot traffic and car traffic. Sage is an excellent hostess...very responsive to all of our questions and requests. Although the backyard is not fenced to leave your dog in, it is nicely sized as a playsite for a family with children. Very lovely...will definitely return to Owl's Nest. PS: We did hear the Owl! :)
