Indulge your love of lighthouses - and other landmarks and sites that dot Oregon's rugged and beautiful coastline - from your getaway haven in this charming, three-bedroom Arch Cape vacation rental home, ideally located just a quick drive to Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, Ecola State Park, and neighboring coastal towns. This is classic beach house, from the weathered wood siding, to a nautical decor, rich with - what else! - lighthouse imagery. Comfort awaits you in the elegant and spacious living area, and fun will beckon you in the game room with analog and digital entertainment.
After a morning stroll on the beach (just a block west from the home), take refuge from the chilly coastal air in this cozy, spacious living area. Get the log blazing in the charming woodstove, the fire's light illuminating the deer in the forest scene on its glass door. Make a cup of coffee, and settle into one of the plush couches. Watch the headlines on cable TV (if you must!), or escape into some music from one of the CDs you brought along. Watch a movie on DVD or VHS on the big flat screen upstairs, or, head down to the game room where you can appease the gamer in you with the Xbox 360, or a spirited game of air hockey! If you don't like what they're watching upstairs, make another movie choice and watch it down here.
Come bedtime, this beautiful and roomy home will accommodate six of you in comfort and elegance. Two of the bedrooms, including the master, are on the main level upstairs. With its nautical bedding and decor a reminder of the majestic Pacific just a block away, your night in the master bedroom will be spent on a big, comfy king bed. Have a seat on the cozy window seat and check your emails or local events on the free WiFi. In the morning, there's an attached bath with walk-in shower. There's a second bedroom on the upper level as well - perfect for the kids - with twin beds and its own TV. The third bedroom, with a queen bed, is downstairs. Three full bathrooms means less waiting time, and a washer and dryer means everyone's suitcase can be a little lighter!
Your cook(s) will appreciate this fully equipped kitchen with all the bells and whistles to create hearty and nourishing meals for the whole clan. Along with the stainless steel, double fridge and the modern gas stove for perfect cooking control, all the pots, pans and utensils your cook will need will be close at hand. There's an overhead microwave for warm ups and movie popcorn, and a dishwasher, so you can just load with dirty dishes and go do something fun! And, when the sun peeks through those persistent coastal skies, through some shrimp or burgers on the gas barbie and savor a seafood meal in a perfect oceanside environment.
Arch Cape is a residential community, so peace and quiet is its stock in trade any time of year.
Your stay in this lovely home ideally situates you between two state parks. Bring the camera over to Oswald State Park, five minutes south, where you can get some incredible shots from Falcon Cape Overlook. There are more panoramic views of Tillamook Rock Lighthouse up at Ecola State State Park, 15 minutes to the north.. Anglers: take your pole and tackle box south about seven miles and throw your line in the Nehalem River, or sign to a charter and head out to deep waters. If you need a tee shirt, a mug, or saltwater taffy fix, Cannon Beach and Manzanita are less than 15 minutes away.
