The Blue Rose Cottage is an oceanfront single-family house located at the mouth of Netarts Bay and Hodgdon Creek, near Oceanside and Tillamook, Oregon. The cottage overlooks the Pacific Ocean, Netarts Bay, and the Oregon Islands Wildlife Refuge. The Blue Rose is a spacious one bedroom cottage on a bluff over the beach - with lots of windows and spectacular views. You can walk from the cottage directly to the ocean beach on our private path, or lounge on our deck, which overlooks the Pacific.

The cottage has a queen size bed in a separate bedroom, and a queen size fold out couch in the living room with a very comfortable coil spring mattress, plus a smaller fold out couch and 2 sleeping pads that young children often enjoy sleeping on.

The area features some excellent restaurants, lots of wildlife, state parks, and many other different types of activities. Seals nest on sandbars offshore from the cottage, Great Blue Heron fish in the waters off our beach, Pelicans sail in the sky, and in the summer wild roses and lilies bloom in the yards. The area is known for Dungeness crabbing, fresh clams and oysters, fishing and whale watching, and is part of the Three Capes Scenic Route.

Netarts is a quiet, non-touristy village of a few hundred people. It's one of the closest beaches to Portland, Oregon (75 miles, or a 90 minute drive). There is a small grocery store a short walk from the cottage. Major services are available eight miles away in Tillamook.

We allow pets, with permission and with payment of a wear-n-tear fee. The local beaches are "pet friendly" and are almost never crowded.

Why Doug Coates chose Netarts

One of the best views on the Three Capes Scenic Route, in an area of Oregon that is rich with history, ecologically largely unspoiled, full of wildlife, quiet, non-touristy and friendly.

What makes this cottage unique

A great place to relax, watch the birds and the crabbers, harvest fresh seafood and experience the drama of the Pacific Ocean. Prime spot for whale-watching during migration season. One of the best views on the Oregon Coast, in the beautiful Three Capes Scenic Route area.

well-equiped cabin

  • 5 of 5

Right from the start, I loved the cabin. It's lay-out is spacious, the furniture is comfortable, and there is a 120-degree view of the ocean, which is only a flight of steps from the beach. The owners provide plenty of extras: nice pillows, plenty of blankets, nice kitchen ware, bookshelves stocked with books, computer, Direct TV cable, and plenty of towels and tissues. The cabin is tidy, well-equiped and ideally situated. A great find!

Incredible view and great beach to walk on

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Blue Rose. It was very comfortable with many touches that made it feel like home. The view was incredible and though there are steps down to the beach they are low rise and nicely spaced so it made the walk down and back up easy. The beach is great for walking as you can go quite a distance. The house was very quiet and private. We are looking forward to our next visit already.

Best birthday ever!

  • 5 of 5

I often dream and peruse for beach rentals... but I thought for my birthday I would treat myself to more than a day trip to the ocean. I really like the Tillamook/Three capes area and thus, I happened upon the Blue Rose Cottage. From the pictures it looked cozy enough so I booked it. So much more than pleasantly surprised when we walked in. Even though you drive through the bustling metropolis of Netarts to get there and it's also nestled in with other buildings, it is a relatively private house. I liked that is was a charming older home, not so much like the cookie cutter vacation homes they seem to building down the coast line. The windows with a view where amazing! The place was simple, clean and quaint. The kitchen was stocked well with cooking utensils, among other things, we grilled and ate like kings (and queen) for three days. The weather was perfect escape from portland's 100 degree weather. The walks along the beach were incredible. There are lots of things within short driving distance to do. And, there is a little Deli/convenient store couple blocks away for when you said you weren't going to eat ice cream on this trip but then "just had to have it" I think it was one of my best birthdays to date. Thank you Doug and family for providing us with a wonderful cottage to get out of town and relax. Rich took his place by the window, I took my place on the deck and we read, drank wine and relaxed... so needed. Again, Thank you.
