|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
Okay, so you and your family or associates are looking for a place on the Coast for that reunion or meeting. You're looking for someplace quiet and private, away from the throngs milling about with their taffy and trinkets. Look no more! This modern 3-bedroom home (2 bedrooms in the main house plus a private, 1 bedroom studio with a separate entrance) is waiting for you. Located on Arch Cape - an unsullied sliver of Oregon Coast just minutes from Cannon Beach and Manzanita - it's dodged the bullet of developers and offers stupendous views from its perch on an escarpment overlooking the Pacific, including (in season) views of migrating whales!
The ocean is visible from just about every corner of Bear's Head. Feel the Pacific breezes as you sip a drink out on the wraparound deck, nestled in the Adirondack chairs. Or, watch the ocean from the comfort of the plush leather furniture through the wall of windows lining the home's exterior. It's a spacious, comfortable living space with edgy decor and enough room for 8 people to stretch out and unwind. And when that storm looms on the horizon, settle in with a movie on the DVD player or VCR. There's also cable TV and free WIFI, so bring along the laptop.
Unless your itinerary includes numerous trips to restaurants in nearby Cannon Beach and Manzanita, plan your meals and bring supplies; Arch Cape has one restaurant. Bear's Head has a full kitchen, beautifully appointed with modern appliances including a dishwasher and microwave. There's extra room for storing those cold things in the pantry through the swinging doors where you'll find a large refrigerator/freezer. (The washer and dryer are in here as well.) Enjoy an ocean view with your meals at the table with room for 6. There's room for 4 more on the padded stools at the marble, wraparound counter. On those days when the sun smiles on the Oregon Coast, fire up the gas grill on the deck and gather 'round the umbrella covered patio furniture for a barbeque.
Combining the 2 bedrooms in the main house with the potential for 4 in the attached studio (available separately!) gets you 8 people bedded down comfortably. The master bedroom comes with a queen bed, amazing ocean views, and a decor that might challenge the classically prone art lover. The other bedroom has a full bed, equally fun art, and easy access to hall bath with tub and shower. The studio - with its own private entrance and a kitchenette - has 1 bedroom and a comfortable futon with a memory foam mattress.
Enveloped by Oswald West State Park and flanked on the north by Hug Point State Park, Arch Cape - and this home - enjoy a privacy and tranquility you won't find in many of Oregon's Coastal cities. Right outside your door and up the hill is the Pacific Crest Trail, the very popular and very long avenue for hikers that runs from British Columbia to Mexico (2,663 miles!). A much less ambitious yet still rewarding hike awaits you in nearby Oswald West State Park where you can take a number of short hikes to Cape Falcon Overlook with its awe-inspiring view of the Pacific! There's also a beach that's popular with boogie boarders and places to picnic. Anglers: Head south about 7 miles to nearby Nehalem where you can try your luck in Nehalem River or arrange a trip out to deeper waters. There's also a great winery in Nehalem with a tasting room where you can sample the local vintages. And, if its trinkets and taffy you want, then Cannon Beach and Manzanita with their shops and restaurants await you!
For some peace and quiet, a great view, and a comfortable and fun place to stay on the Oregon Coast, reserve this lovely home in tranquil and picturesque Arch Cape.

Bear's Head provided a delightful visit over our four day stay. Despite a gloomy forecast, we enjoyed two fully sunny days, one with brief showers and peek-a-boo sun, and one dramatic day of wind and surf. The comfortable house and studio were just as described, and the local Vacasa staff was immediately helpful when one very minor glitch arose. The nearby beach access was too challenging for rickety human knees and canine paws, but a quick drive (less than 5 minutes) to nearby Hug Beach parking area got us onto an almost deserted, almost endless beach with ease. And the dramatic views from the back decks, lovely grassy yard and most of the interior spaces will satisfy anyone who wants simply to stay put. We hope to return many times!
We very much enjoyed our stay here. The view was incredible! We loved that it was in a quiet neighborhood away from the crowds and had easy access to the beach just down the road. We appreciated that the house was dog-friendly for our three dogs, yet still very clean. We had a great time and are looking forward to coming here again!
The location of Bear's Head was perfect. It was so nice to be away from the crowds and so close to the beach. The view was spectacular.
The guest house bed sagged in the middle and the condition of the towels and linens need to be addressed. They are old and look it. The house could definitely have been cleaner.
It was overall a great vacation.
While the home is comfortable, this is not the place to stay if you have any hope at all of accomplishing even the most simple remote work task. Internet and cell phone coverage are basically non-existent. The kitchen is well equipped with everything that you may need and more spices than you would ever need. It also should be noted that you cannot access the beach from the yard. And although the home was not clean when we arrived a couple of phone calls resulted in someone coming out the next day to take care of a few of the issues. We have rented private homes often but sadly this was not a pleasing experience in renting a home for our vacation.
When we opened the Red Front door we ALL started screaming & jumping around!
We could not believe the ocean right out our windows! We loved the furnishings --fun lamps, bright original paintings etc!!
We enjoyed everything about our stay there! In fact we are returning next month..
