About Carolyn O'Brien

I was born and raised in Lake Oswego, Oregon. I own a company which plans weddings and events in the Portland Metro area and all along the Washington and Oregon coast.

Carolyn O'Brien purchased this house in 1971

Why Carolyn O'Brien chose Cannon Beach

My brother, sister and I have been vacationing in this home since 1971. Our parents made the very smart purchase before Cannon Beach became one of the most sought after spots on the Oregon Coast! I now manage the rental of this home so that it will stay in the family for years to come.

What makes this house unique

In the late 90's we had to move the house from where the Pig n' Pancake parking lot is now. At the time it was an ordeal, but the move enabled us to take the house off Hemlock, add another bedroom, bathroom and fenced backyard and still be in walking distance of the beach and town. All in all, a very good move!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our third trip to Cannon Beach and our third time to stay at this cozy cottage. We had a great time on Family Fun Cycles, visiting the Seaside Aquarium and building fires on the beach in the evening. What a beautiful treat. Thanks for sharing your vacation home with us again.

cozy but spacious

  • 4 of 5

The family came together for a special birthday celebration. The common areas were comfortable and just what we wanted. The weather was near 70 and sunny, so a lot of beach time was enjoyed. We would stay again at this little gem.

A Great House

  • 5 of 5

We were there for two weeks and loved every minute of our stay. The house is well stocked and very comfortable for 6-8 people...lots of beach chairs and towels available. The back deck is wonderful for breakfast and happy hour and for dinner on a warm night., The location is fabulous....a block from the beach where we made two fires while watching the sunset and eating s'mores. It is also a very short walk to town which is filled with magnificent flowers and all the great restaurants and beautiful galleries and shops. Also a short walk on the beach to Haystack Rock, especially great in the morning to see the puffins. Very close by is Ecola State Park, fun for a stroll in Seaside, and a day trip to Astoria. The owner, Carolyn, was extremely responsive when we had a few minor issues . Working with her both through the rental process and also while we were there was such a pleasant and satisfying experience. All in all, our family thought it was one of the best of our annual reunions and this house certainly was one of the main factors in our terrific vacation.
