Gearhart Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Awesome 2 Bed 1 bath beach cottage, walking distance to a great Oregon beach.
Nothing is better than summer at the beach! (Except maybe Spring or Fall--so even if we're booked this summer-you will love the mild Spring or Fall weather and relaxing atmosphere.
The bakery next door is back in business so you don't even have to make breakfast or lunch if you don't want to. (Great omletes and huge sandwiches).
Go on a hike and look for elk and deer, snuggle by the fire, take a trip to Astoria or Cannon Beach, and enjoy the beautiful Oregon coast! Our stretch of beach is beautiful, but not crowded and just a quick walk away.
You will fall in love with the location and details of the Norway Cottage. We are nestled in between Sunset (Neacoxie) Lake and the grand Pacific Ocean at Sunset Beach. You can walk to either easily. The minute you arrive, you will be greeted with a Welcome Basket of wine, coffee & creamer so you can start enjoying your vacation immediately without worrying about the details.
Our 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home has been completely remodeled. We kept the old 1933 charm, but updated everything else!! (Windows, siding, flooring, electrical, plumbing, walls, you name it) You will love the cozy gas fireplace, new modern kitchen, open layout, glass mosaic tiles in the bathroom, and luxurious bedding for both of the bedrooms.
The living room is surprisingly large and is furnished with a flat screen TV, cable and Blu-Ray DVD player. House is equipped with WiFi, so you can stay connected with work, or family and friends. We provide dozens of DVDs for you to enjoy, as well as lots of family games.
The kitchen features ample, brand new hickory cabinets, a gas range and oven, built-in microwave, instant hot and all the comforts of home. You can make large dinners with ease. There is built-in seating and a large table to accommodate up to 6 people. We pride ourselves in supplying the house with the kitchen basics that most rentals do not have. You will find a large variety of spices, foil, baggies, and more.
The master bedroom is directly across from the bathroom and features a very comfortable queen size bed, luxurious bedding and pillows, night tables and dimmer lights on both sides of the bed. You can sit in bed and watch the 32' TV, either cable or a DVD, or kick back in on of the vintage wicker chairs to read a book. We have an IHome in the room so you can wake up to your own music.
The 2nd bedroom is great for kids or a 2nd couple. There is a built in full size bed and across the room a twin bunk bed. The rooms' nautical decor is quaint and sure to please. There is a TV, cable and Xbox 360 system (which also doubles as a DVD player) so everyone will be pleased and have something to do. Six drawers of under bed storage here to keep you organized and comfy.
The cottage also has a great entryway to hang your coats, towels, and take off your shoes (Please!) If you do need to do laundry, there is a washer/dryer in the laundry room that you can use as well.
Need to clean off after coming home from the beach? Please wash off in our hot/cold exterior washing station on the S. side of the house. This will keep the house, the bathroom and your tootsies clean and happy.
In the garage you wil find a BBQ, ping pong table, beach toys, sports equipment, cruiser bikes,skim boards, body boards, life jackets, fishing poles,clam guns, and more ammenities to make your stay pleasurable.
The Norway Cottage is a fantastic, vintage cottage for your beach get-a-way. We have another home on Mt. Hood VRBO #366343 and our guests are very happy with the attention to detail that we provide. This is not a musty, drafty, old beach cottage. This is a beautiful new home in a lovely beach neighborhood that is a perfect spot for a family or couples getaway.
Please send us any questions you may have and thank you for your interest.

About Kurt Malmedal
My husband Kurt and I are original Oregonians. We both grew up in the Portland area (me the East, him the West). We work in the corporate world and have a blended family of 5 children ages 16-22. The picture is of us at Martha's Vineyard in April 2012--we were taking a break from remodeling the cottage.
Kurt Malmedal purchased this cottage in 2011
Why Kurt Malmedal chose Gearhart
When we found the 1933 beach cottage, we looked past all the work it needed and fell in love with the area. Both of us had grown up going to the beach all up and down the Oregon Coast, but neither of us had been to Sunset Beach. When we drove around and saw how perfect the location was, the vision of the Norway Cottage began to take shape. We think you will love the location as much as we do.
What makes this cottage unique
The Norway Cottage is our 2nd vacation property. We also own and operate the Norway Chalet near Mt. Hood Oregon, and have consistent 5 star reviews from our renters.
The Norway Cottage is located almost equal distance between Seaside and Astoria, a little bit away from the hub-bub of the towns, but close enough to make a quick trip if you desire. Our favorite aspect of the cottage is the location. Neacoxie Lake is literally 250 yards to the E. of the cottage. You can fish, and boat in the lake. There is a small playground, picnic area and boat ramp there as well. If you'd rather spend time at the ocean, either ride a bike, walk or drive the 1/4 mile straight down Sunset Beach lane and you are at one of the best beaches in Oregon. In Oregon there are only a few beaches that allow you to drive on the beach--we're one of them. Makes loading up the car with kids, chairs, beach toys and picnic food awesome. Drive down, find a spot and start enjoying the beach without having to lug everything from a parking lot a mile away.
Have a boat you're bringing to the coast? We have parking for a 40' trailer as well. Cullaby lake is a mere 5 minutes away too if you want to trailer your boat there, or you can put in at the Sunset Beach lake dock.
