About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8) Dog? See criteria under description.

The Bonnie Nook is a very charming historic landmark. It was the 8th house built in Cannon Beach in 1908. It is furnished with turn of the century American antiques. The oak library table in the living room is original to the house. There are two small bedrooms downstairs, one with a antique double 1850's bed and matching dresser, and the other with two twin beds and antique armoire.

Upstairs is a very large room with one queen bed and two twins. There is a bathroom upstairs and one on the main floor. The spacious living room has a stone fireplace that houses a woodstove. We have wood that you can use for woodstove only and firepit only.

There is an armoire that has surround sound TV and VCR, DVD, stereo with cassette and CD. There is a closet that has lots of games. The large country kitchen is fully equipped and has an antique harvest table that seats 10.

The backyard has a large deck with two benches. It is very quiet and private and great for sunbathing and outdoor eating. We recently added a fire pit for marshmellow roasting and just sitting around the fire at night.

Once you are there, you do not have to drive anywhere (except home if you can bear to leave). The beach is 1.5 blocks, 3 blocks to town (or the village as some call it) and 2 blocks to midtown.

We have had the house for 18 years. One family has been coming for 17 years and says, 'we are so thankful for your sweet place that has brought our entire family so much joy every summer'. Other comments include, 'we feel so at home here' and 'this is the best bargain in Cannon Beach'.

Again, we have a no smoking policy. We are able to accommodate children over the age of 6. Small (under 20 pounds), well behaved, trained, non shedding dog will be considered .Please let us know if you have a dog when you inquire. Check for fee under rates.

Guests also bring their own linens: sheets, towels and dish towels. Because of this, we are able to keep our rent and cleaning fee lower. If this is not possible, other arrangements can be made.

About Margie or Gary

We live in Portland, Oregon and are both semi-retired. We love to travel, read, spend time with each other, family and friends. We have been married for 43 years, have one married daughter who lives in Bellingham, Washington. She is a award winning wedding photographer. We are proud grandparents to two beautiful girls.

Margie or Gary purchased this house in 1991

Why Margie or Gary chose Coastal Oregon

In 1989 we drove through Cannon Beach and it was love at first sight. We noticed that there were no antique stores there and since Margie had a shop in Portland, we decided to open a shop in Cannon Beach. So if you are going to have a shop in CB, it might be nice to have a place to sleep at night. So began our search for a house. When we saw this cottage, we knew it had to be ours. It was sitting on the ground without a foundation, had no heat inside but it had the character and history that we loved. Gary jacked up the house, put in a furnace, new wiring and the list goes on. The history of the cottage is posted inside the house with some original photos. It is also featured in a book called 'Cannon Beach Cottages' by Jill Grady. We love that the house in so centrally located and we do not need to drive once we are there. This is especially nice when the town gets really crowded and there is no parking. Cannon Beach is one of the prettiest coastal towns in the country. We feel so fortunate to have a home here.

What makes this house unique

Great shops, interesting restaurants, long walks on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, hiking, the fresh salt air.

A Step Back in Time

  • 5 of 5

The Cannon Beach Historic Cottage is a wonderful place to rest, put up your feet and stay warm from the rock face, wood burning, stove. The comfortable home is full of antiques and stuffed with memories, capture by paintings and wall hangings like the old whalers harpoon. Close to everything the only problem we had, was we wanted to stay longer.

The Bonnie Nook

This was a great place to stay in Cannon Beach. It's nicely situated within walking distance to shopping areas, is well equipped with nearly everything one needs and very cozy with the wood burning stove. I would recommend it.

Bonnie Nook....charming

  • 4 of 5

My two girlfriends and I had a lovely stay at this sweet little cottage. It is adorable outside and in. Tons of charm in the decorating and super cozy. It was clean and well equipped. It was nice to be a close walk to town and also close to the ocean. The only negative is the bathrooms are small and they need a curtain to cover the whole window on the main floor bath. I always worry about someone looking in the window when it is dark out and you have the lights on, but I am probably not normal. Haha. I believe we will go back for many reasons but mostly the charm and location. Thank you Gary and Margie

Third time is a Charm

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Bonnie Nook. It is a very cozy cottage to return to after a day at the beach (one block away). We could easily walk all over town , great location. The house is well kept and most provisions are supplied making it easy to cook, rest, enjoy games and tv. The owners are easy to communicate with and like to keep the cottage in good order. We will return again and I would advise anyone to vacation there.
