Coos Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4), jacuzzi tub, washer/dryer

This 1908 cottage, rebuilt in 2005 after fire destroyed the top floor, is a cozy getaway nestled in the coastal town where Annie's grandfather was, long ago, the Mayor and mill worker on the bay. It's the perfect spot for the family vacation, writer's/artist's hangout or business trip.

From Annie's Cottage, the beach is as close as a few blocks or a short drive to the active fishing village of Charleston and the business meeting is less than a 15 minute drive no matter which direction you go in Coos Bay or North Bend, yet you have the feeling the moment you step out of the car and stroll up the stone path and hear the soothing sound of the water fall, that all the tensions of your active every day life are just no where to be found.

A day playing in the sand dunes or at the beach or taking a hike along the coast is perfectly ended by a soak in the jacuzzi tub and then lean back in the recliner overlooking the bay to watch the sunset and the occasional ship go by. Our non commercial, relaxing, authentic little town will invite you back again and again to forget there ever was a freeway, a long line to stand in or a phone ringing off the hook.

About The Owner

Paul and Annie Comfort share a love for this little, authentic coastal community. Each have deep roots in the community and have participated in local theater and music. Paul bought the home that is now Annie's Cottage over 20 years ago with hopes of entertaining friends there. A bachelor for many years, he was a customer of Annie's when she was a sales clerk in the 1970's & 80's at a local Radio Shack. He worked in marine electronics in the nearby fishing village of Charleston and later was the technical director at a local theater. Annie moved away after college and, after the death of her first husband, returned to Coos Bay where they met again and fell in love after working on a music project together. After fire destroyed the top floor of the Cottage, they were wed and rebuilt the Cottage in 2004 with the dream of sharing it with people just like them who just need a peaceful getaway from time to time.

The Owner purchased this house in 1983

Why The Owner chose Coos Bay

We've always loved the Oregon coast, and the Coos Bay area is full of unspoiled beauty. The non-commercialized beaches, dunes and forests are exquisite. The air is fresh and clean, and the temperatures are always moderate.

What makes this house unique

From the minute you begin your walk up the path to the front door, there is a peace about the Cottage. It is a resting place, a place to truly kick back and take it easy. From the easy chairs overlooking the bay on the top floor, you can watch ships and fishing boats and an occasional barge go by. Once in awhile a tall ship can be seen, such as the Lady Washington. Whether it's sitting on the rocks of the waterfall in the front yard and watching the neighborhood birds play in the water or relaxing in the jacuzzi tub upstairs, it is a true getaway, a destination.

Charming sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5

My visit was 2 1/2 weeks, a time in my life to regroup and start over. Annie's cottage has given me a much needed welcome and a comfortable, charming environment for me and my faithful companion, Ruby. The accommodations are top-notch with every convenience needed for an overnight or an extended stay. I can highly recommend Annie's Cottage and will stay here again on my next visit to the Southern Oregon Coast.

Owner's Response: There's nothing better than a "re-boot" from time to time! We're so happy to be able to contribute to your fresh start after some down time. Hoping Ruby is having a lovely time of it too :-)

Lovely cool summer at the cottage

We have so enjoyed two extended stays at Annie's cottage! Annie and Paul are very hospitable hosts who include all the necessary bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom amenities. There's no sense of stinginess, but rather a warm generous welcome exemplified by top quality towels, sheets, and delicious chocolates from the local Cranberry Sweets store.

Before we even enter the house we enjoy hearing the sounds of their garden - the rushing water of the small stream and the twittering of the rufous hummingbirds as they fly in to drink from the fuschia.

It's a comfortable, clean, peaceful place in an excellent location. Everything is nearby: the coast and Charleston to the south, dunes to the north, and the town in between. It's a short easy drive to scenic walks along the ocean from Sunset Bay State Park to Cape Arago. We never tired of walking along the cliffs and watching the waves, seals, cormorants, and pigeon guillemots. Another highlight was kayaking the calm waters of the South Slough. South Coast Tours provided the kayaks plus a friendly experienced guide. And the dunes, especially on the John Dellenback Dunes Trail, were spectacular. Well, our interests were birding, hiking, photography, reading, kayaking, and swimming and this was the perfect place for all of that.

How fortunate that the Coos Bay/ North Bend area isn't touristy and is alive year round. This meant for us on an extended stay that it had 2 outstanding public pools, 2 public libraries, a great gym, a bookstore, supermarkets with organic food, a thriving farmer's market, 2 fine museums...

Annie and Paul were readily available and helpful whenever we had any questions and were a great resource for "what to do" and "where to go" in the area. They went the extra mile in ensuring our comfort.

How relaxing after a day of fresh air, hiking and being outdoors to sit upstairs in the cozy alcove on mission chair recliners and read and look out on the waters of the bay.

Thank you Annie and Paul for providing this healing cottage!

Full of beauty inside and out!

Enjoyed our 5 day stay at Annie's cottage! Rented VRBO spots many times before and this tops them all. Annie was very responsive from my very first email to the last. She was very prompt and honest in answering all my questions. Traveling with a young child & as a parent, it was important for us to know the layout of the place and I had many questions... It was just perfect!

From the moment we stepped foot on the property we fell in love with it's beauty. It has very nice kid-friendly garden and secure place to park your car. The waterfall was a nice touch! Great green grass for Kids to run and just be kids. The cottage was very, very, very clean and had all the amenities. The kitchen was well supplied with the basics and loved the recycle bin. The reminder notes were friendly and not overbearing at all. The owner really makes you feel at home and makes sure you have it all in the cottage. If you have forgotten something, not to worry, she has you covered! Loved the simple yet personal touches from Annie. Though there's only limited TV channels, the movie/video selection was wonderful...enjoyed introducing my little one to Laurel and Hardy and also the Three stooges! Rain or shine, this is a beautiful place to stay and just relax. Centrally located and easy drive down to Bandon up to Florence. Husband enjoyed fishing with the locals on the dock nearby while I had my much needed cat nap! The photos don't do it justice as it's definitely more than what we expected. Very spacious and well decorated. It was very private and a great place to get away from it all. Coos and the towns nearby are filled with friendly people. I can't think of anything we did not like about the place except maybe consider adding a night light for the upstairs in case you need to get up or if you are travelling with a little one. Wasn't a big deal though bc we brought our own. The Jacuzzi is just amazing!

Thank you again Annie and Paul for sharing your lovely home with us!!! I asked the little one to tell me the best part about the trip and it was no surprise that the response (with great enthusiasm) was, "Annie's cottage"!!!!

Your love for the cottage definitely shines throughout the house! I can't imagine staying anywhere else in the area! Hope to be back again someday!

Owner's Response: That was an over-the-top review, thank you! The night light is my fault, Paul had one out and I put it away awhile back. I'll put it out again, promise! ;-) We love, love, loved the drawings from your little one in the guest book...and your description of your stay was so fun!!! Thank you so much for celebrating here and adding to the wonder of Annie's Cottage! Annie

Cozy and comfy!

This cottage has a beautiful bathroom. Water feature on property, and came with a few sweet extras which we very much enjoyed. Can't beat the location just down from charleston and sunset bay...with ease of access to coos bay!

The cottage was like an English countryside with the beautiful yard and the water feature. You don't even know you are in a neighborhood it is so secluded and serene. Sitting in the yard during the day or evening is perfect. The house is comfortable and everything we needed was there. The upstairs bedroom has a view of the sunset over the water which ends the day perfectly. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we would definitely stay there again.
