ELEGANT LOG CABIN GETAWAY NEAR BEACH FOR COUPLES

Ocean Shores Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Romantic log cabin, designed especially with couples in mind, close to beach

Unique and beautifully crafted, this cozy cabin is truly a gem, complete with a real captain's bed tucked into the alcove, your own 'galley' to take care of the midnight munchies or the long drawn-out breakfast. Captain's Quarters is a stand-alone cabin, 16' x 20' in size that has all the amenities of a much larger cabin, but scaled down for the intimacy of a private hideaway.

Our guests often comment that the cabin is much larger than it appears on the photos, and it's absolutely perfect for couples. Just a few steps outside the door, slip into the hot tub and soak your cares away.

There's plenty of room on the sleeper/chaise sofa to kick back and watch movies. The sofa opens up into a full bed, so you can have a serious popcorn and movie night cuddled up under the blankets, or use the extra room in case you have your own little 'castaway' with you!

The dining table seats 4, and the 'galley' is set up complete with fridge, stove top, microwave, coffee pot and toaster, along with everything you need for cooking. In the cabinets, you'll find coffee and creamers, hot chocolate, and popcorn. For the 'over 21' crowd, we like to provide a nice bottle of wine to welcome you to Moss Landing Cabins. Let us know if you'd prefer red, white, or non-alcoholic sparkling cider!

Whether you're ready to sink into the hot tub just steps from your door, throw a steak on the outdoor barbeque, pull up your lawn chairs to the fire pit and roast some marshmallows, or perhaps challenge someone to a game of horse shoes, you can do it here at Moss Landing Cabins.

Just a 5 minute walk to the ocean, we're close enough to hear the waves rolling up onto the beach from the hot tub when the weather is right. Whether you're staying for two days or a whole week, Captain's Quarters has everything you'll need for a fabulously memorable trip to the beach!

And you can have that memorable vacation without worry about additional cleaning fees, pet fees, or damage deposits. Our guests have always been so respectful of our property that we decided to do away with all those extra fees. So grab your camera and your favorite person, and head to the beach!

We are GLBT friendly.

If your 'crew' is a little larger, you may be better suited to our larger cabin, Ship's Quarters, which is also on VRBO. (Just look for property 307966)

Hi, I'm Sonja, and my husband, Tom, and I built Captain's Quarters as the 3rd cabin at Moss Landing on a piece of property we bought in 2006 near the beach in Ocean Shores. Our first cabin, Ship's Quarters, is also listed here on VRBO (Property 307966). The second cabin we built is Wind Dancer, and we live in that one.

Well, actually my husband did most of the building, but I got to furnish and decorate them! When I was 14, I found a picture of a little log cabin and taped it to the front of a notebook. I carried that picture with me for the next 20 years, always dreaming of the day I might be fortunate enough to have a cabin of my own. Then I married Tom. He and I have been building and remodeling things ever since we got married in 1998, but the possibility of building a log cabin was always there in the back of our minds. When we bought the property in Ocean Shores, we had an idea that we could build some type of vacation homes so people could enjoy the beauty of Ocean Shores, but nothing we could find really felt like the right thing. One day, we were talking about the property and what we might do, we realized that we could finally make our dream of log cabins come true. We HAD the technology! (Actually, Tom had the skills and I had the 'want to'!)

We are so fortunate to have had so many people stay at Ship's Quarters and Wind Dancer, and now we are able to offer our latest cabin that is geared for more intimate getaways, Captain's Quarters. Our guest book for our other cabins are full of heart-warming stories, and we're looking forward to reading all the stories of the folks who stay in Captain's Quarters as well. Moss Landing Cabins have been built with loving care, and we love sharing them with people who are looking for an enchanting, relaxing, and original getaway. Bon Voyage!

Sonja Moss purchased this cabin in 2006

We never thought a place like Ocean Shores could exist. A friend told us about it and said she had bought a lot to build her own vacation home there. She said that there were still a few lots available for sale, so we took off for places unknown.....and we were delighted. We bought our lot the same day we arrived. We knew that it was a place we wanted to keep coming back to. Ocean Shores is a quaint little community with SO MUCH to do. People from all over Washington (and further) come to do clam digging, beach combing, storm watching, and kite sailing. The convention center sponsors many festivals each year, including the Beach Combers Festival and Razor Clam Festival in March, the Sand and Sawdust Festive and MANY others. For a small town, Ocean Shores has it going on! There are so many wonderful things to do. You can even go horseback riding on the beach.

We have found the people to be very open and friendly. Although we didn't live in Ocean Shores for the first few years we had the property, we've actually moved into one of the cabins and we make Ocean Shores our home now. So now our dream vacation is our life! We have made such good friends here, and living in a small beach town is EXACTLY where we want to be. Ocean Shores a unique place and a wonderful nature spot. You just have to be willing to share the roadway with the local deer population. Not a problem!

Moss Landing is a place to wind down and relax. Enjoy the silence of being at the end of the peninsula near the wildlife refuge. Feel the ocean breezes as you relax in the hot tub. The solitude is peaceful and renews the soul. Nature is close and palpable. Storms occasionally come screaming in, but you are always safe, warm, and dry in our rustic, cozy, elegant cabins. There is as much or as little solitude as you want. You can enjoy the hot tub, barbeque your favorite foods, walk down to the beach, take some beach photos, kick back and watch a movie, cook a gourmet meal. If ever a cabin could be a destination resort, this is it. This place was created for YOU. And we can't wait to meet you!

Cozy getaway suitable for all seasons

The weather during our stay ran the gamut, so I'm confident in saying this is a great getaway for all seasons. On Saturday we cozied up in the well-appointed cabin and read while the rain monsooned outside. On Sunday, Moss Landing was the perfect base camp for some long beach walks.

Sonja and Tom are incredibly generous hosts (a bottle of wine was chilling in the fridge when we arrived!), and certainly seemed ready to be responsive if we needed anything, but everything was more than adequate! (We missed out on getting to know them around the firepit on this trip, but we hope to get an chance on a future visit!)

In addition to a great cabin and friendly hosts, it meant the world to us to be able to bring our dog. She's slowed down quite a bit, but she's still as happy on the beach now as during our first camping trip together four years ago (also to Ocean Shores).

I'm recommending Moss Landing, and particularly the Captain's Quarters to my friends, and will definitely be coming back!

Owner's Response: Matthew,

As you know from your time here, you can have a 2 day vacation in Ocean Shores and experience all the seasons! The weather here changes on a dime, and it's so exciting to watch the beauty of nature in action. Our dog, Juneau, just turned 6 the other day, and we're looking forward to many more happy years with her like you've had with your sweet dog. Thank you so much for your lovely review of our cabin.

We arrived late Sunday night. Sonja was there to meet us and show us the cabin. She had set out cheese and grapes and chilled some sparkling cider for us and had the cabin warmed up. A beautiful, charming little cabin. It was spotless and cozy. Perfect spot for a romantic getaway. Too cold to use the hot tub, but we will be back.

Owner's Response: Carol, I'm so glad you enjoyed the cabin. With you coming in so late, we weren't sure you'd had a chance to have dinner and we wanted to make sure you at least had a little something to tide you over until breakfast. We're looking forward to your next visit.

Top notch little beach cabin for a quiet stay with your humans - well-stocked, clean and cozy. Great for watching football (Dad,) crafting (Mom,) or sleeping on the rug (me.) The owners are wonderful and might even scritch you behind the ears. Mom & Dad recommend the Home Port restaurant in town, but I say running on the beach (only a couple blocks away) and chasing seagulls is way more fun. Highly recommended, 4 paws up!
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Pet-friendly, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: I'm so glad you got to run your four little paws off on the beach. Since your humans had such a good time too, maybe they'll bring you back to exercise the seagulls again soon!

The Moss Landing cabin is a work of craftsmanship. It has good ambiance and was nice and warm for a December weekend at the beach. It was immaculately kept and had all the amenities necessary for making all of your own meals. It was especially nice that our two dogs were welcome. Sonja brought them treats upon our arrival. The hot tub was a real treat.

Moss Landing Cabins is located at the southern end of Ocean Shores by the jetty. The beach is only about a 5-minute walk from our cabins and there are two beach accesses which make it easy to take a walk from one to the other and circle back to the cabins for a nice hike of approximately a mile.

Our cabins have several amenities to make your stay memorable in Ocean Shores. We have a nice fire pit, an outdoor barbeque, and have recently added a horse shoe pit. Each cabin has its own hot tub, and the entire yard is now under lawn, so the sand can just stay on the beach instead of in your cabin!

As your hosts, Tom and I live onsite and will meet you when you arrive, give you your keys, and show you around. We also welcome out guests to Moss Landing with a nice bottle of wine. You can choose between a nice red blend, a white reisling, or non-alcoholic sparkling cider.
