Depoe Bay House Rental Photos and Description
House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Relax and renew in style at this historic oceanfront vacation cottage with stunning views in Depoe Bay. Recently renovated with all new flooring, an updated full kitchen, decorative touches throughout, and all the conveniences of home, this charming getaway is just right for a quiet, romantic retreat. While this cottage is simply perfect for a couple to share, feel free to bring up to two youngsters, as there is a queen sized sofa sleeper in the living room.
Set above beautiful Pirate Cove, this one-level, classic shingled beach cottage invites you to step inside and make yourself right at home. The open living room has new slate flooring, recessed lighting, wood ceilings, and a comfortable sofa. Large floor-to-ceiling windows frame a wonderful view of ocean waves crashing over the rocks. You can watch all of nature's action right from inside the warmth and comfort of the cottage. This is also a prime viewing spot for nesting seabirds, as well as sea lions that sun themselves up on the rocks!
In addition to the ample sea life right outside the window, the living room also features a cozy gas fireplace and flat-screen TV with a DVD player. You'll have a tough time deciding whether you want to look for pelicans and seagulls flying outside, or watch a DVD in front of the fire. There's also cable and WiFi throughout the cottage for even more entertainment opportunities.
A dining room table with seating for four is located right by even more ocean-facing windows. In the spring and winter, enjoy buttermilk pancakes and coffee for breakfast while keeping an eye out for whales. The full kitchen also has slate tile floors, and includes all the appliances needed for delicious vacation meals, whether it's a simple bowl of cherry oat granola in the morning or a lemon-roasted chicken at night. There's plenty of counter space for all your culinary experiments, and the dishwasher will have everything cleaned up quickly so you'll have more time to enjoy a post-dinner glass of wine in front of the fire.
Step outside the cottage to the beautiful lawn or the deck to catch closer views of soaring eagles or the waves crashing into the cove directly below. There is a briquette barbecue for use as well, so dinner could easily be some grilled salmon served al fresco style. After the meal, you'll want to take some time to linger outdoors and watch the sunset.
A spacious bedroom has a queen sized bed, hardwood floors, bedside tables and reading lamps, and ocean-themed art on the walls. Sink down into the bed at night while you listen to the sounds of the ocean. After a restful night's sleep, slip past the plush area rug and out the sliding glass doors to enjoy some coffee on the deck. And if you want to sleep in, there's even heavy, dark drapes to keep the light at bay until you're ready to greet the day.
Off the kitchen, there's a full bathroom with a shower/tub combo that also has a stacked washer and dryer. So don't be afraid to take off your sandals and walk along the beach. If your pant legs get a little wet, you can have dry clothes back at the house in no time, thanks to the provided washer/dryer. This one bedroom, one bath cottage will sleep four people quite comfortably.Please note that this bedroom is adjacent to the living area and does not have a door attached. If you do have a larger group, Pirate Cove Cottage 2, a two-bedroom, two bath home, is right next door and ready for eight additional guests. Please note that both homes share the same yard, deck, and parking area.
Heading outside this delightful little cottage, beach access is five minutes north or south at either of the state waysides in Depoe Bay. Also to the north is Fogarty Creek State Recreation Area. Here you can explore wooden footbridges winding thorugh Sitka spruce trees and forests. The nearby creek flows into the beach and picturesque ocean cove below. This area also offers great birdwatching and tide pool viewing.
From the cottage, you can walk also to the nearby shops, restaurants and art galleries in Depoe Bay. Take in the sights, sound, and spray from the Spouting Horns, which are caused by the ocean water being forced up through the natural lava tubes in the seawall. For foodies, plan a special, romantic meal out at Restaurant Beck, just to the south of town, for locally-driven cuisine by a James Beard Award nominated chef.
In the fall and winter, be sure to stop by the Whale Watch Center, and don't forget about a stroll down to the World's Smallest Harbor! Depoe Bay is home to the Wooden Boat Show in April, the Annual Fleet of Flowers in May, and the Native American Style Salmon Bake in September. The bustling town of Lincoln City is a mere 15 minutes north and Newport is easy 20 minutes to the south.
