Hi, we are Karl & Kelly, co-owners of The Dorothy Lou. We are native Washingtonians & we enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, boating, good music and good food often shared with family or friends. We're experienced property managers, having operated our Hood River VRBO vacation home (56526) since 1995. We bring those skills and customer service to this home in Cannon Beach, OR.

Karl Hadley purchased this house in 2012

Cannon Beach is a long time favorite destination of ours, and Karl's mother, Dorothy, purchased this home in 1980 when her mother died. On Dorothy's passing this year, we just couldn't sell the home, so we decided to buy it, patch up some neglected items, and use it as a vacation rental. To honor my mother's memory and her affection for Cannon Beach, we've named the home after her.

You are just a short walk to the beach, and situated away from the more crowded area of Cannon Beach proper. Haystack is in sight and a short walk. You'll also enjoy quick access to Highway 101.

RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
Nine members of our family for nine days at "Dorothy Lou" was a very relaxing and beautiful vacation. Having that view to wake up to every morning, play by day and bonfires at night is highly recommended by us all. Your home is comfortable and well set up for so many to cook, sit out, play board games and finish a quite difficult puzzle. I'm sure we will visit again to get our kites to soaring and s'mores warming. Happy Summer!

COZY, CLEAN & CLOSE TO THE BEACH!!

Cozy, Clean & Close to the Beach!!
  • 5 of 5
We brought our two kids (5&4) to the beach for my hubby's birthday. The Dorothy Lou was the perfect place for us! We walked to the beach countless times and pulled the vintage wagon behind us, filled with sand toys from the garage. We met the wonderful neighbors (Tom & Peggy) and learned some history of the cabin. The house is so quiet in the evenings, except for the stove and the ocean. It was PERFECT! The back deck and new BBQ made us feel right at home, as well as the long picnic table-style table with benches for seating. We can't wait to go back & enjoy more time in Cannon Beach.

EVERYTHING YOU WILL NEED FOR FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I want to start off by saying Karl, the home owner, was so responsive and generous. We traveled from out of state with grandparents and two young kids. After we inquired about a porta crib we were delighted to learn that he had purchased a Pack-n- play to meet our needs. The house is spacious with 3 floors (lots of stairs) 4 rooms, 3 of which have TV's. The decor stays true to a longstanding family retreat but has everything you will need. Most appreciated was the absence of a TV in the family room. It allowed you to truly enjoy your companions and the view- just what we wanted.

COZY BUT SPACIOUS HOUSE ON THE BEACH.

  • 4 of 5
Our party of 8 (6 adults and 2 kids under 5) were delighted when we arrived at the Dorothy Lou Family Home. As promised, the house was only a 5 minute walk from the ocean. There was plenty of room to spread out if people wanted their own space, but a nice open family area where we could all sit in the same room together and work on projects - including watching the daily chef prepare breakkfast or dinner. The downstairs was fully equipped with a bed, several bunk beds and a bathroom - perfect for a family of 4 (or bigger). The second floor had all the common areas (kitchen, dining room, family room with a gas woodstove and a beautiful view of the ocean outside the huge picture windows), TV room, and a large bathroom with a clawfoot tub (and laundry facilities). The third floor had two spacious bedrooms (one with a view of the ocean, and one that had two beds in it where a family of three could have slept). The only drawback was that there was only one shared bathroom on the third floor - but our group made it work with schedules for showers and use of the toilet and sink on the second floor.
We brought our own food and a few specialty kitchen tools/cookware (like a waffle iron and a crockpot), but the kitchen was well stocked with the standard items one would need.
Even the bathrooms were well stocked with plenty of towels, shampoo/conditioner, soap and a blow dryer.
The drive to town took only a few minutes, so we felt like we were "out in the country" but still close to restaurants and shops.
We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this home to any group who is looking for a place to stay in Cannon Beach. The cost of the rental was very reasonable (cheaper than any others we found online) and did not cost an arm and a leg for a cleaning deposit. In fact, in price shopping for our party of 8, we couldn't have even stayed in a cheap motel in the area for less than what we paid for a whole house together where we could enjoy cooking meals and hanging out together.
Well worth it!!! My hats off to the owners for making this such a wonderful retreat place.

A VERY CHARMING BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Dorothy Lou is in a great location, one block from the beach and a walk or short drive to downtown shops. The house is exactly as advertised: description and photos are accurate, property was very clean and well maintained, Karl (owner) was excellent to work with. The house is stocked with pretty much everything you might need, except your food. We made good use of the puzzles and games. Gas fireplace makes the entire house cozy and warm when it is cold or rainy outside. We felt right at home. I would recommend Dorothy Lou to anyone looking for a delightful getaway in Cannon Beach.

THE CHARM OF DOROTHY LOU!

  • 5 of 5
Cannon Beach in the Fall is magical, the Dorothy Lou Family Home helps make it so. Located a few short steps from the beach, this home has everything you need for a lovely stay at the beach!

The house has a nice view of Haystack Rock from the master bedroom and partial ocean views from the living room. The house is spacious (three floors) with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms so there is plenty of room for family and friends. My bed was delightful, nice sheets and a comfortable mattress.
The kitchen is very well equipped and has everything you might need to prepare meals. It also has large dining room table. There is a nice new BBQ and two decks for sitting or eating outside. A quick walk to the beach to take in the sunset is a must...or it can be seen from the living room in front of a cozy fire.

The Dorothy Lou is a warm family beach home, I would highly recommend it. Thank you for sharing your home with me, I hope to return again next year! Something therapeutic about the beach...

Cannon Beach is a favorite Oregon Coast beach, well known for spectacular scenery, and a welcoming town with interesting shopping. The beach has miles of sand, welcoming the contemplative stroller and serious runner alike. Rent beach trikes for faster exploration and excitement.

The beach is a great playground for kite enthusiasts and frisbee/football throwers. It is a romantic and magical place that draws couples wanting to reconnect, and families looking for a destination with enough interest for all members.

Haystack Rock is a well-recognized monolith, home to many Puffins. At low tide, witness sea anenomes and starfish which live in tide pools at the base of Haystack Rock. Often, park rangers or other volunteers are present to give educational talks about this ecosystem.

Cannon Beach is well know by 'foodies' who come to the beach to enjoy the numerous options for excellent cuisine.

Bill's Tavern and Brewhouse creates some fine beers-take some home in a growler, or enjoy a meal and beer in the brewhouse.

Numerous nearby parks including Ecola, Indian Creek, Hug Point offer great exploring and sight-seeing opportunities. Nearby Seaside has a fun pinball arcade, bumper cars and an older, but very interesting aquarium, with seals that will splash water on you if you don't feed them quickly enough.

Nearby towns of Manzanita, Nehalem and Tillamook have more shops, restaurants, unique, scenic beaches, and even a cheese factory offering tours, and a WWII airplane museum within a huge blimp hangar.

There is no end to the relaxed exploration and beauty of this destination. Come see for yourself!
