A BIRD WATCHERS PARADISE

Heron's Rest is a 1910 cabin sitting on 5/8 acre along the Necanicum River north of downtown Seaside, Oregon. Facing west, the picture windows wrap around the front of the house providing hours of beautiful views of the river, estuary, and sunsets. The ample yard offers a play area for kids and a lovely riverside sitting/BBQ area. Located just far enough from downtown to be a quiet secluded setting, the cabin is only 2 blocks from the 12th street bridge, a favorite crabbing location, and just an 8 minute walk (6 blocks) to the beach. The restaurants and shopping areas are a short 10 minute walk, or 2 minute drive away.

The cabin is fully furnished for short or long stays. Two bedrooms without adjoining walls assure quiet evenings, and a queen sofa-sleeper allows for extra guests. There is ample ventilation and a ceiling fan to bring in the sea breeze. On cooler nights electronically controlled heating and electric blankets assure everyone gets a warm nights sleep.

This has been our home and we love it. The laughter of children, BBQs, birthdays, the 4th of July fireworks celebration with fires on the beach, the Hood-to-Coast Relay, volleyball tournaments, sandcastle contests and a hundred other celebrations have brought laughter and joy to this house. Since its construction in 1910, when a clam shell road linked Seaside with the Astoria train station, this house we call Heron's Rest has given rest, relaxation, comfort and joy to those who slept here.

From the picture windows you will enjoy hours of viewing as the wildlife passes on the river. Often herons are seen perched on the nearby trees or snags; eagles swoop in graceful curves as they fish for the days meal, and seals can be seen sneaking their way up river in search of salmon, crab or other local fish. We invite you to join those who have enjoyed this special place for your special occasions.

Thank you for such a cozy welcoming space! We enjoyed a drizzly but healing stay (visiting from Colorado).

QUIET CABIN ON THE RIVER

  • 5 of 5
Our 3rd stay at Heron's rest. We would return, again. It is a great location on the river - far enough from "downtown" to be peaceful but also convenient. The outdoor fire pit is a great addition.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
My wife, three daughters in their 20's, our family dog, and I had a wonderful time staying in this very charming comfortable home. The house had everything we were looking for; it was in a beautiful setting on the river, it was conveniently located, and had all the amenities. We didn't get to use the outdoor fire pit but we did have a barbecue dinner one night. Nick was a great host, he made it an easy process, and he was extremely helpful. Five stars from us. Hope you find the opportunity to stay there we would go back in a flash!

COZY FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at Heron's Rest 2 times now and we have enjoyed ourselves both times!! The house is smallish, but cozy and quirky with an awesome view of the Necanicum River. Very quiet and peaceful and private. Seaside is an awesome and fun town for families and this little cabin is just outside all of the hustle and bustle that makes Seaside fun~close, but not too close. We have 3 children that love being so close to the river (though it is a steep drop, so beware with very little ones). The surrey rental down the street is a short walk and off you go~tons of fun and a great way to see the sites in town. The little park just across the river is great for the kids too. Pig N' Pancake for one breakfast and Fultono's Pizza & Video Aracade are a must for a night out. We cooked or had most meals in our own kitchen in the cabin, which was fabulous to have all items on hand for such. We grocery shopped just a few blocks away and were set with snacks and meals for at "home". We look forward to staying here again. Our kids already have TONS of memories and missed staying there again this year. They even asked us to do a little drive-by this year when we spent a day in Seaside (this year was camping in Nehalem Bay State Park/Manzinita just 20ish miles further). The owner(s) have been very helpful and timely with questions, concerns, and such~though our concerns were few. :) We hope you enjoy your stay if you choose Heron's Rest as we have.

PERFECT SPOT IN SEASIDE!

  • 5 of 5
My family (two Grandparents, wife, and two kids...5 and 1) had a great time at the Heron's Nest. It was as advertised: scenic, peaceful backyard, easy walk to the boardwalk and to the heart of Seaside. The layout was nice for us as the bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house which gave some privacy for our needs. I strongly recommend the Heron's Nest for a great family escape to Seaside!
