MY COUSIN'S COTTAGE-- QUIET RETREAT, EASY PRIVATE BEACH ACCESS

Seal Rock Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Wide, sweeping ocean views and fantastic sunsets are yours in this lovely area of Oregon's central coast.. Just a quick walk to Silver Sands neighborhood steps to the beach to enjoy! This two-bedroom vacation rental is newly updated for you and your family. This affordable lodging allows you to splurge on other local treats. Nestled in a wooded setting, in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood between HWY 101 and the beach, , 'My Cousin's Cottage' is freshly painted, carpeted, renovated and decorated with plenty of high-end art, and interesting antiques. Treat yourselves to this quiet retreat away from jangling phones, TVs and other electronics. A sanctuary-like comfortable space with natural woodlands surrounds you as you enjoy the quiet back deck with your morning coffee and conversation or just a good book. In the evening, a lovely glass of local wine or microbrew could accompany the yummy seafood from the abundant ocean ports just minutes away.

The master bedroom, with its 1800's antique walnut bed, features a small private bath and a large walk-in closet. You'll love the casual, eclectic assembly of fun, interesting furnishings and art. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed, large closet and large tub/shower bath across the hall.

Plenty of windows to enjoy the woodland views, catch a glimpse of the local red fox, bask in the ocean breezes and hear the surf. Family meals are easy with fully equipped kitchen, dining area and rear deck allowing relaxing, fun meals indoors or out.

Even when you are on vacation, you too can wash clothes-- (full laundry facility with washer, dryer).

Well-behaved, tidy dogs are allowed. Dog-friendly equipment is on site-- yard is NOT fenced.

No smoking is allowed on the property.

Garage (one car) is over-sized, with lighted work bench if you really want to repair that bicycle. Concrete driveway allows for two cars in tandem.

This rental provides easy access (less than 20 minute drive) to the nearby coastal towns of Newport, Seal Rock, Waldport, and Yachats. Many local fun festivals take place for the whole family (and dogs, too) year round. Explore the myriad of terrific eateries and shopping along with hiking and biking trails, State and National Parks nearby. Farmer's markets, microbreweries, wineries, and delicious wonderful bistros and bakeries are all around and manned by intriguing locals.

Kids will have days of fun at the renowned aquarium and historic port in Newport and then return back to splash in our neighborhood stream. Fly kites on the beach, build sand castles, play frisbee, watch the seals and walk miles with Fido. Build forts and fires-- enjoy sunset cook-outs. Driftwood State Park(well named) is adjacent to our neighborhood. Our magnificent beach is exceptional-- open, long and wide with gradual shallow depth--easy wading (fun in a negative tide!). Lots of beach grasses, interesting beach combing--especially after those famous winter storms!

To maximize your privacy, cleaning services are not included during your stay. Fresh linens will be provided to guests staying longer than one week. Mandatory housekeeping service at the end of your stay ($75 minimum-up to 3 hours).

Our Silver Sands Neighborhood is quiet and peaceful with many local residents and only a few rentals. This is NOT a party place. Please observe the 15 MPH speed limit.

Plenty of free WIFI hotspots in the area. Cell phone service is reliable-- feel free to call me if you need anything during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family enjoyed staying here and walking to the beach daily! Very quiet neighborhood and lots of area for the kids to play. They enjoyed finding the large slugs and red newts outside. Grocery markets in Waldport are conveniently close (2 miles south) if we needed additional food. We will definitely be back.

After many fun years in the health care industry (research pharmacist , pharmaceutical sales and marketing) , I moved from Colorado to enjoy my family ties in Oregon --where my grandfather homesteaded. I live full time in Ashland, Oregon. I enjoy travel, walking cooking,, gardening, bridge, theater, good friends and my doggy, Honey.

Cindy Barnard purchased this cottage in 2007

I loved to join my cousin in her home here at Seal Rock after moving to Oregon. When her happy, long stay (23+ years) in this home ended, I purchased the cottage to enjoy with friends. I have had fun renovating and invigorating the home to share as a rental with others in this special spot. I hope you enjoy your time here. It is a fascinating area.

Walking with my grandsons, friends and my lab on this beach is wonderful--no matter what the weather! I can watch them play and run for miles and know that this area of the Oregon coast is especially safe and friendly for my loved ones. Good coffee, family, friends and doggy-- beautiful sunsets. Wow! I am blessed!!

A COMFORTABLE QUIET PLACE TO STAY.

  • 4 of 5
Good location to beach. We spent at least 3 to 4 hrs a day on the beach. Very quiet neighborhood even over July 4th. This place provided us the comforts of a home while on vacation (that didn't make us poor just to stay for a week.) We were glad to see a griddle to make pancakes, bacon and eggs for breakfast/dinner. The BBQ was also great. We enjoyed using it for our small family Fourth of July BBQ. Our kids used the sleeping bags and pillows that were provided. VERY GLAD there was a fully stocked washer and dryer area! We would stay again if this place was available for our next vacation.

IT WAS PERFECT FOR OUR SHORT STAY.

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was very clean and neat and the owner was very accommodating to our needs. The description is accurate and the directions were easy to follow. This cottage was located in the middle of were we wanted to be, but in a quiet neighborhood away from traffic. We would definitely recommend it to friends and relatives, and to strangers as well. We will be repeat customers.

Owner's Response: Wow! I love reading these lovely comments from my guests. What a treat to know that the cottage worked so well for these nice folks. They had a long drive for their multi-generational family, and I am glad the peaceful setting allowed them to relax and enjoy our wonderful coast. I am delighted and content to have this spot for weary guests to unwind and enjoy each other and these surroundings. Cindy

SWEET LOCATION, WELL CARED FOR HOME

  • 5 of 5
This house was just right for our family of 3, including our 18 month old daughter. The beach is perfect for little ones, with soft sand that is mostly flat, so plenty of shallow waves to play in. Not to mention the clean freshwater "creek" on the beach. The cottage is comfortable and quiet. Cindy was a gracious host who made sure our stay was to our liking.

Owner's Response: Made my day to find this lovely review on my listing! Thank you!!
This simple beach place is a very special place to get away to enjoy family and friends --I am happy to know how it fits various needs and expectations. Unplugged from our busy lives, sequestered from the pull of jobs, computers and television-- we can open our ears to the quiet of nature and our eyes to see the joy of our children and pups running free on this quiet beach. Tarry awhile and rediscover youself and your loved ones. Cindy

I WOULDN'T CALL THIS A "COTTAGE"

I wouldn't call this a "cottage"
  • 2 of 5
This is a very old 1970's trailer. My definition of a "cottage" is very different. The place had 2 tv's but no cable. After getting up at 5:00 to fish for 10 hours, we prefer to kick back and watch tv. There are some videos available, but none of them were movies we cared to watch. We had to spend extra money to rent 3 movies each day for 4 days.

It is in a nice relatively quiet neighborhood. The beach access was really nice.

Owner's Response: I always appreciate the feedback, it is a gift. Nicole, I am sorry it wasn't what you were expecting. Some things cannot be changed, like the age of the home. Other than my cousin, (who always called it her "cottage") I am the only owner, so although it has had lots of anniversaries, this manufactured home has had no hard use and is totally redecorated and refurnished. To replace it with traditional construction would drive the rental price out of the ballpark. So, yes--undoubtedly it is venerable, but many families appreciate being able to bring their dog, and kids and have two bedrooms/2 baths, living room, kitchen and nice yard for less than $100 per night. Unplugged, no cable? No TV? That's pretty well spelled out in the description-- again preferred by stressed out folks, looking for a place at the beach to have conversations with their family. Thank you for your thoughts and your comments. Cindy

WE HAD A WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here over spring break 2013. We are from the desert of Idaho and so longed to see the coast. Booking was easy, finding it was easy, walk to the beach was easy! Very fun trip with lots to enjoy in the area. Small stair decent/climb to the beach but was well worth it for the very few people you encounter. Was even easy for this old disabled vet with bad knees. Well worth booking! Highly reccomended!

Owner's Response: What a delight to get this review-- makes my heart sing to know that others enjoy this cottage as I do! Thanks for this wonderful feedback. While the beautiful ocean is the real star of the show, it certainly is great to hear from my guests when my little cottage allows them to easily enjoy all that the coast has to offer. Y'all come back soon! Cindy

MY COUSIN'S COTTAGE IS DELIGHTFUL!

My Cousin's Cottage is delightful!
  • 5 of 5
This was a great place to spend relaxing time. The cottage is clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. It has all the amenities. Well equipped kitchen, TVs , comfortable beds. It is a short walk from a gorgeous beach that is largely deserted.
Waldport is a cute little town with a couple good restaurants. Newport, a few miles north is a great place to spend some time. Good restaurants and lots of things to do.
The photos accurately depicted what the cottage looks like. I would recommend this to anyone. It is charming!

Owner's Response: How delightful to hear from this discriminating traveler! Several improvements in the property were ordered and installed late this spring and early summer-- nice to know these additions are appreciated and noticed. Always wonderful to know the cottage is being enjoyed by nice people!
