Ocean & Haystack Rock View - Quick & close walk to beach !

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

We built our Cannon Beach home in the late 1980s and have been enjoying it ever since. It is a large two and a half story home with ocean views to the west and south, including Haystack Rock & the Needles. You can enjoy the views from two sundecks, or from almost every room in the house.

IN THE HOUSE... a spacious living room and sundeck for lounging & reading; all with ocean views. For stormy nights there is a wood-burning stove/ fireplace. There is also plenty of room for arts/crafts in the dining room area, as well as playing games and doing puzzles.

The main floor King master suite has its own private, 3/4 bath and a partial ocean view.

There is a Queen bedroom on the same floor, w/ access to small back deck and TV. Utilizes a second main floor bathroom.

A second Queen bedroom is located on the top story with an amazing view of the coast -- it has a queen bed and its own private viewing deck. Utilizes the second main floor bath.

On the first / lower floor there is a comfortable reading / movie watching room, with a wood-burning stove & up-to-date 50" flatscreen TV. There are two twin bedrooms on the lower floor, each with two twin beds, that share a bathroom. The laundry room is also located on this floor.

OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE... it is just a five minute walk down to the beach -- our home is located on the east side of Hemlock, the main street that runs through Cannon Beach. You simply have to cross Hemlock and walk down either a small hill or a public staircase to get down to the Beach and Haystack Rock.

Midtown Cannon Beach is a 5-10 minute walk from our home, Downtown is about 20 -- 30 if you're walking on the beach. There is also a shuttle that goes from town that you can take -- no need to drive anywhere!

About Helen Fraser

Our parents bought the land in the 1970s and dad and brothers built the house in the late 1980s. We have been enjoying it ever since.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at your beach house. The house is marvelously comfortable. The weather was perfectly iconic. We have photos of our children on Cannon Beach from 30 years ago wearing hooded sweatshirts in August, and now have images of our grandson to match.

What did you love about the house?

. Very comfortable and quiet.

. Location is great. Good beach access with a bit of morally

invigorating climb back to the house (it is the Oregon coast, after all).

. Close enough to "downtown" CB but beyond the motels.

. The decks and bay window nook.

. The game hoard (junior Monopoly and the fishing game were big


. All the appliances worked and the kitchen was well equipped

particularly for beach life. Viz., there were about a dozen cork pullers

and we bought crabs knowing there would be implements to crack them (yup,

back of the tableware drawer). `

. The fireplace (and dumbwaiter for fire wood) is remarkable. Who

knew that two sticks of firewood could produce that much heat?

. The fact that you left out so many objects of obvious personal

significance was very welcoming.

What could use improvement?

-We can't suggest any improvements. Keep it up.

Cozy home for a rainy week

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home for our extended family visit. All 9 of us (6 adults and 3 kids) fit comfortably among the 5 bedrooms. With stormy weather during much of our stay, we were able to fully appreciate the amenities and layout--multiple gathering spaces, 2 fireplaces, games and puzzles for all ages, amazing views. Thanks for a great stay!

We really enjoyed our three generation family gathering in this wonderful house!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house offers everything you need for a wonderful time at Cannon Beach! When we lit the fireplace the first night and saw an elk walking on the street, we felt we were out for a real treat. We were blessed with sunny weather in October, so we could even use the great deck and enjoyed the view, the closeness and the easy access to the beach right at haystack rock even more...

Thank you Helen for the friendly and efficient rental arrangements!

Perfect Place In Cannon Beach

  • 5 of 5

Love the house as a base for exploring Cannon Beach. I had never been to this part of Oregon before and had a great time. House is in a great location with a wonderful view throughout the day. All was perfect and could not ask for a better host.

Great for my group

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with two families. Great layout with two "kids rooms" downstairs.

The walk to the beach is fairly easy. We had children from 1 year to 8 years old with us and they had no problems going to and from the beach with us. I believe the distance from the house to the sand is around 700 feet. The views from the house were better than I expected.

If I had to list anything that could be improved it would be the air conditioner. It was an abnormally warm weekend and the AC couldn't really keep up with the outside temp with all the big windows facing the evening sun. After sunset the place cools off nicely again with the windows open.

Overall it was a great weekend. We all had fun and would definitely look forward to staying here again!

Gorgeous home with great views and easy beach access.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here to celebrate my mom's 70th. We had a fantastic time! The house was more than we expected. Very clean, well stocked, and spacious with a wonderful view of the ocean and haystack rock. It's easy access to the beach, and a quick walk to town. We would definitely stay here again, and are considering making it an annual family tradition.
