Overview

Neskowin Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 bedroom, 1 bath (sleeps 2)

NOTE TO ALL MY PAST GUESTS (thank you), and FUTURE GUESTS: I love every New Year, full of potential. I spend days planning and scheming about what I want to accomplish in the next 12 months. But this year I broke my pattern. I made time to come visit my own cabin. I am asking you to consider this - forget your running, hiking, yoga, acupuncture, massage, ibuprophen...whatever it is you do to relax. Plan a getaway. Plan it here. Do not bring your computer. You will find peace and quiet until your mind becomes mushy. Turn on the hot water in the claw foot tub, add bubbles, lean back and look up into the trees, the valley, the stars. Then put your feet up while sitting on the couch watching the sunset over the ocean. Stay as long as possible. You may find a place inside that will stay with you even when you get back to your world. Do this for yourself...

Listen to the quiet…

This year-round retreat is totally private with magnificent 180-degree views. A west and south-facing deck overlooks sunsets, the ocean and miles of forest. Newly built in 2011, we have furnished this cozy but contemporary 1 bedroom, 1 bath home as a comfy getaway. It is located 300 feet above the valley floor, with southern exposure. Three sides of windows and decks show off a view from many vantage points. It is likely the most elegant “tree house” you have ever seen.

This is the place where you will remember what peacefulness feels like. You may be so 'busy' looking out the windows while curled up on the couch, watching the morning sun peek though the trees, the sun set over the ocean, the moon coming through the skylight while soaking in the claw foot tub, star gazing from bed....that you never quite make it down to the beach. (Although it is only a 5-minute drive.) Make the Green Flash Cabin your destination for Savoring Silence.

Sunset Magazine recommended our cabin as one of three best places to stay along the gorgeous Oregon Coast...in the September 2012 edition, 'The Call of the Oregon Coast.'

TWO-PERSON MAXIMUM, NO EXCEPTIONS. Keep in mind that the location of this cabin is one mile east of Hwy 101, sitting up high along a valley that has few residents. It has a one-lane gravel road that used to be a logging road - it cannot be found by GPS. If this sounds too remote for you, then you may want to be closer in to town. But if it sounds appealing, it is honestly just fantastic. It is two miles to the beach.

This is a retreat destination, without the ammenities of a microwave, WiFi or cable TV (although 3G access is very good). The large soaking tub with a side-mounted faucet has a flexible head for 'showering' while in the tub, but does NOT have a stand-up shower head or surround. We have a state-of-the-art stove, with touch-sensor commands. In addition, there is a dishwasher, electric coffee maker and toaster, plus plenty of dishes. While in the kitchen you are surrounded by views of miles of unspoiled wilderness.

The 'Green Flash' is an atmospheric phenomenon that, when the conditions are just right, you will actually see a very bright lime green flash - similar to a light bulb flash - right at the moment when the sun drops below the horizon at sunset. I have seen this only once during my time at the coast. It was truly memorable...

Just a 5-minute drive to the village of Neskowin, you’ll be far from the beach shops and boardwalks of larger beach towns. In Neskowin you will find one golf course, one grocery store, one art gallery and one wonderful café – the only commercial businesses. Enjoy 7 miles of gorgeous beach walking, evening bonfires, surfing, skim boarding and tide pool exploring. Within a beautiful 10-mile drive is Pacific City, where there are numerous fun shops, galleries, restaurants, a surf shop, another wide and walkable beach, plus the tide pools and hiking of unique Cape Kiwanda.

This beautiful part of the north/central Oregon Coast is just a two-hour drive southwest of Portland, between Lincoln City and Pacific City, north of Cascade Head.

Check out Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, a most wonderful facility located along the south side of Cascade Head. They offer a wide array of classes and workshops all summer. (about a 7- mile drive)

About Stephanie Wiarda

After living in Neskowin for 13 years, I moved to Portland with my family in 1991. I am a silversmith who handcrafts jewelry, and also manages several vacation rentals in addition to my own. I love my job, gardening, kayaking, biking, hiking, spending time with my dog, and taking off for a few days at the coast.

Stephanie Wiarda purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Stephanie Wiarda chose Neskowin

Neskowin is a small, special place that has changed little in the 30 years since I lived in and now visit the area. It is quaint, friendly, relaxed, has headlands, a long beach, eagles, majestic forests, hiking trails....everything you would want in a coast village.

What makes this cabin unique

Time, quiet, privacy, beauty, nature, peace, sunsets, tidepools, elk, deer, eagles, reading on the deck, dozing on the couch, walking on the beach. Time, quiet, privacy.

It is a 5-minute drive to the beach and village where there is one cafe, one small store, and access to the beach. Keep your eyes peeled for seals in the surf and sand dollars on the beach. I even found a whale vertebrae in the sand a few years ago!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I were here for a week on our honeymoon. The cabin was so beautiful and perfect! We both knew we would enjoy our time here, but we both agree it was even better than we imagined. Thank you for making our honeymoon so special. We will remember this place and hope to come back in the future.

Quiet and relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5
It was the perfect getaway for my husband and I. The cabin is wonderful and cozy. I enjoyed the quiet the most. There was the distant sound of the ocean and the occasional calling of Stellar Jays. A little advise: the road to the cabin is a dirt road, not suited for low-laying cars. The gravel-covered driveway was a little hard to get out of. But other than that...it was perfect.

17th Year Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5
This was hands down the BEST place I have yet to stay at the Oregon Coast. The cabin and surroundings are nothing short of amazing. We never turned the TV on once or even thought about it even though we brought dvd's to watch. You can easily lose yourself in the beauty of the surroundings. Blacktail deer and Roosevelt elk graced us with their presence every morning. Truly a treat and we didn't want to leave! The town of Neskowin is a well kept secret gem. Unassuming and friendly atmosphere.

Everything you imagine and so much more!

  • 5 of 5
This place is incredible. While the photos absolutely do it justice, there is no way to capture the true majesty and magic of this cabin and its location. Working with Stephanie was easy, and she was incredibly responsive. The cabin was clean and beautiful upon our arrival, even though the cabin was booked every single day around our stay. It was quiet, relaxing, and romantic. While it was raining and foggy when we arrived, within an hour or two, the sun came out over the ocean just in time for the sunset. It was absolutely amazing. While it's been nearly two weeks since our stay, I find myself thinking of Green Flash Cabin regularly. We will most certainly go back. It was unlike anywhere I'd stayed before. I feel lucky to have been able to stay here on the night of our engagement. Thank you!

A Perfect Tonic

  • 5 of 5
In thinking about what I needed to unwind from the craziness of work life, I was thinking about a cabin in the woods, but also like what coastal towns can offer. Luckily I found both in this beautiful retreat. Very quiet and serene, with wonderful forest and ocean views. And, a quick drive to town in either direction on highway 101. The owner was very responsive in her communications, and provided all the information needed to make the stay an easy one. I will certainly come back to this lovely spot.

Great Stay

My Wife and I recently stayed at the cabin. It is beautiful, and everything is exactly how it looks in the pictures. The owner provided us with useful information. It was exceptionally clean and stocked with everything we would need. I give my highest recommendation to stay here.

A Wonderful Hideaway with Inspiring Views

  • 5 of 5
A well described and maintained retreat cabin. Excellent owner communication and directions. Wonderful placement of windows providing views of surroundings on three sides. If you hit it lucky, there'll be sunshine on decks morning, noon and evening. Interior casually classy. We would recommend this place to people who would love nature's peace in a quiet treed valley, the sounds of a stream if the winds are right and ever-changing ocean views. Plenty of variation in beach and restaurant exploration within a 15 mile radius. Closest beach just five minutes away. A definite recommend.

We cannot get WiFi in the cabin, but if you use a 3G IPad or laptop air card it will work fine. Your own cell phone is the only option for phone service, but it should also work well.
