You can't see much of Arch Cape from the highway, a fact contributing both to the little community's privacy and its attractiveness. Just past Arch Cape, about four miles south of bustling Cannon Beach, the coast road sweeps even further eastward, bending around the dense foliage of Oswald West State Park. Take the road through that lush green buffer, and you're there - at gorgeous Bear's Head! From the wrap-around deck of this lovely two bedroom home perched on a bluff above the Pacific, you'll have a front-row seat to waves, whales, and the beautiful and moody weather that characterizes the Oregon Coast.
Please note, this listing is for one half of the property. If the separate studio is reserved, the outside spaces will be shared.
But you needn't be on the deck, with its charming Adirondack chairs, and umbrella-topped dining set, to appreciate the panoramic view. Inside or out, the ocean is always there in front of you, brought to you through a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap around the home. When the chilly winds bite, throw a log in the river-rock fireplace. Make yourself some cocoa or coffee, slip a movie into the DVD player and watch a flick or your favorite show on the DirecTV cable. And don't forget to load up your iPod so you'll have some tunes to play on the iPod dock! There's also internet access, so bring your laptop along as well.
The decor is colorful and edgy, with original pieces of art throughout. The interior space is seamless and modern, with leather chairs that are plush and comfortable. There's a full modern kitchen with microwave and dishwasher, flanked by a wrap-around bar where hungry diners can chat with the chef and munch on hors d'ouevres while they're waiting. The dining table, with room for six, comes with an added treat of the terrific view! If you're planning to dine out, there are 35 restaurants about 12 minutes away in Cannon Beach. Head south to Manzanita (about 7 miles; 10 minutes) where you'll find 10 eateries.
Bear's Head sleeps four comfortably - along with your dogs, for a small nightly fee. Along with a queen bed and private bath, the master bedroom also comes with a great ocean view. In the other bedroom, you'll find a full bed and easy access to the hall bath with tub and shower. There's also a washer and dryer so you're not toting laundry home or looking for a laundromat.
Bear's Head is all about location! Situated on one of the most picturesque and rugged parts of the Oregon Coast, there's very little traffic and the area, unlike its neighbors to the north and south, is relatively free of businesses. In winter and spring, grab the binoculars and watch for whales as they spout and breach on their migration! The Pacific Crest Trail - the popular hiking trail that runs along the coast - is right up the hill from the front door. The views from nearby Arch Cape and, a little farther, Cape Falcon, are awe-inspiring! Oswald State Park - where forest runs to water's edge - envelopes the area, offering opportunities for hiking, picnicking, or just a walk on the beach. The fishing is great in nearby (about 7 miles) Nehalem where you can cast your line the Nehalem River. And, if you just have to have that souvenir, head up to Cannon Beach where the streets are lined with boutiques, shops, and galleries.
Come to where the ocean meets the forest in a beautiful and pristine surrounding. Come to Bear's Head in Arch Cape on the rugged, Oregon Coast!

About Vacasa, OR - Oregon Coast Office
Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers. <br> <br> Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team. <br> <br> Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Spacious, amazing views of the ocean, well equipped (except need glass wine glasses). Fun decor. Perfect for two couples. Arch Cape is great if you want to be somewhere quiet and uncrowded. You can drive to Cannon Beach for restaurants and shops. Only complaint is the bed in one of the bedrooms- too soft and I kept rolling towards the middle of the bed. The mattress should be replaced. We will rent this place again!
The home was well maintained, the view and deck were awesome!
Cute and well appointed
Good kitchen, fireplace, bbq, needs directions on turning on tv, the small bath has a mildew order. But very cute.
So pretty and a great view.
We visited for a couple of days with our adult children and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
A little piece of paradise
Adorable home. Loved the open concept and the view. The home was clean and comfortable as well as colorful. Loved the art work! Great for my elderly mother who uses a walker. The only downside is that there is no beach access from the property. Overall thumbs up!!!
