Waldport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Wide, sweeping ocean views and fantastic sunsets are yours in this lovely area of Oregon's central coast.. Just a quick walk to Silver Sands neighborhood steps to the beach to enjoy! This two-bedroom vacation rental is newly updated for you and your family. This affordable lodging allows you to splurge on other local treats. Nestled in a wooded setting, in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood between HWY 101 and the beach, , 'My Cousin's Cottage' is freshly painted, carpeted, renovated and decorated with plenty of high-end art, and interesting antiques. Treat yourselves to this quiet retreat away from jangling phones, TVs and other electronics. A sanctuary-like comfortable space with natural woodlands surrounds you as you enjoy the quiet back deck with your morning coffee and conversation or just a good book. In the evening, a lovely glass of local wine or microbrew could accompany the yummy seafood from the abundant ocean ports just minutes away.

The master bedroom, with its 1800's antique walnut bed, features a small private bath and a large walk-in closet. You'll love the casual, eclectic assembly of fun, interesting furnishings and art. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed, large closet and large tub/shower bath across the hall.

Plenty of windows to enjoy the woodland views, bask in the ocean breezes and hear the surf. Family meals are easy with fully equipped kitchen, dining area and rear deck allowing relaxing, fun meals indoors or out.

Even when you are on vacation, you too can wash clothes-- (full laundry facility with washer, dryer).

Well-behaved, tidy dogs are allowed. Dog-friendly equipment is on site-- yard is NOT fenced.

No smoking is allowed on the property.

Garage (one car) is over-sized, with lighted work bench if you really want to repair that bicycle. Concrete driveway allows for two cars in tandem.

This rental provides easy access (less than 20 minute drive) to the nearby coastal towns of Newport, Seal Rock, Waldport, and Yachats. Many local fun festivals take place for the whole family (and dogs, too) year round. Explore the myriad of terrific eateries and shopping along with hiking and biking trails, State and National Parks nearby. Farmer's markets, microbreweries, wineries, and delicious wonderful bistros and bakeries are all around and manned by intriguing locals.

Kids will have days of fun at the renowned aquarium and historic port in Newport and then return back to splash in our neighborhood stream. Fly kites on the beach, build sand castles, play frisbee, watch the seals and walk miles with Fido. Build forts and fires-- enjoy sunset cook-outs. Driftwood State Park(well named) is adjacent to our neighborhood. Our magnificent beach is exceptional-- open, long and wide with gradual shallow depth--easy wading (fun in a negative tide!). Lots of beach grasses, interesting beach combing--especially after those famous winter storms!

To maximize your privacy, cleaning services are not included during your stay. Fresh linens will be provided to guests staying longer than one week. Mandatory housekeeping service at the end of your stay ($75 minimum-up to 3 hours).

About Cindy Barnard

After many fun years in the health care industry (research pharmacist , pharmaceutical sales and marketing) , I moved from Colorado to enjoy my family ties in Oregon --where my grandfather homesteaded. I live full time in Ashland, Oregon. I enjoy travel, walking cooking,, gardening, bridge, theater, good friends and my doggy, Honey.

Cindy Barnard purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Cindy Barnard chose Coastal Oregon

I loved to join my cousin in her home here at Seal Rock after moving to Oregon. When her happy, long stay (23+ years) in this home ended, I purchased the cottage to enjoy with friends. I have had fun renovating and invigorating the home to share as a rental with others in this special spot. I hope you enjoy your time here. It is a fascinating area.

What makes this cottage unique

Walking with my grandsons, friends and my lab on this beach is wonderful--no matter what the weather! I can watch them play and run for miles and know that this area of the Oregon coast is especially safe and friendly for my loved ones. Good coffee, family, friends and doggy-- beautiful sunsets. Wow! I am blessed!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a good place to just do what you want! Took some drives, shopped a little. Did a crazy Passover took us two days. Read watch movies eight and eight. Took our little dog to the beach. He ate a lot of sand but he ran and ran – 12 years old. Love the house and all the wicker! The yard and blooms are so nice! Love the time here!

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away in Seal Rock, Oregon,we discovered a small piece of paradise. Tucked back into a small alcove of trees, you get an immediate sense of peaceful serenity. The decor ranges from whimsical to modern...all coming together beautifully. It was nice not to have to live out of a suitcase or decide which restaurant we wanted to go to for any of meals.There were a couple days we chose to just stay in and relax,other days we sightseeing. The beauty of the surrounding area is amazing. From the rolling farmlands, quiet beauty of the foothills, to witnessing the awesome splendor and power of the ocean. We were also lucky enough to witness the dignity and majesty of a mated pair of bald eagles while at the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse.There are many little treasures to find. One of personal favorites was The Chocolate Frog just down the road in Waldport. The owners were amazing and very friendly. We've had a great time this week and have only one regret. We really wish we could have stayed longer. However,plans are already in the making for next year to return to this beautiful home and the slice of paradise it's tucked away in.

Owner's Response: I am so happy to hear from these nice guests who spent a week at the cottage-- the splendid serenity and quiet repose enjoyed here is not for every one, but it's a piece of heaven for those of us who need to nourish our souls and escape the demands of our overwhelming lives. I'm so happy to share it with guests who appreciate the charm and contentment of this little piece of my heart! Thank you, dear guests for taking the time to share these thoughts with others-- AND with me! All the best, Cindy B.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

Thought I would write what is charming about this rental. It is so quiet and peaceful. My husband and I went with our little dog and it was perfect. Loved the reading chairs. We read, did a puzzle that took us awhile. Boy was it hard. Watched some movies and went to the beach When you want to go to the beach down the road there are 58 steps down. I use a cane but it was easy. This was the best up and down the hwy for a person that needs help. Loved it! It was so cool and rain for the first 2 days at night.We are from Sac and we have had 100's already. So boy, I wish I could have bottled it up to bring home.But, this house has everything! You will love it!!!!!!!!! And loved the little lawn for our dog to explore.

Very sweet little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My Cousin's Cottage is a charming little house tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. The beach is a pleasant 5-minute walk away. The cottage may not have flashy amenities or swanky frills but that's what we loved about it! It's sweet and simple, perfect for hanging out, relaxing, great kitchen for cooking, comfy beds, nice porch out back, lots of light, and fabulously eclectic "beachy" decor. It was my brother's 40th birthday and there were balloons waiting for us when we arrived - an amazing and personalized touch! We will absolutely be back.

Thank you for these nice comments!! Cindy B.

A comfortable quiet place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

Good location to beach. We spent at least 3 to 4 hrs a day on the beach. Very quiet neighborhood even over July 4th. This place provided us the comforts of a home while on vacation (that didn't make us poor just to stay for a week.) We were glad to see a griddle to make pancakes, bacon and eggs for breakfast/dinner. The BBQ was also great. We enjoyed using it for our small family Fourth of July BBQ. Our kids used the sleeping bags and pillows that were provided. VERY GLAD there was a fully stocked washer and dryer area! We would stay again if this place was available for our next vacation.

It was perfect for our short stay.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean and neat and the owner was very accommodating to our needs. The description is accurate and the directions were easy to follow. This cottage was located in the middle of were we wanted to be, but in a quiet neighborhood away from traffic. We would definitely recommend it to friends and relatives, and to strangers as well. We will be repeat customers.

Owner's Response: Wow! I love reading these lovely comments from my guests. What a treat to know that the cottage worked so well for these nice folks. They had a long drive for their multi-generational family, and I am glad the peaceful setting allowed them to relax and enjoy our wonderful coast. I am delighted and content to have this spot for weary guests to unwind and enjoy each other and these surroundings. Cindy

Sweet location, well cared for home

  • 5 of 5

This house was just right for our family of 3, including our 18 month old daughter. The beach is perfect for little ones, with soft sand that is mostly flat, so plenty of shallow waves to play in. Not to mention the clean freshwater "creek" on the beach. The cottage is comfortable and quiet. Cindy was a gracious host who made sure our stay was to our liking.

Owner's Response: Made my day to find this lovely review on my listing! Thank you!! This simple beach place is a very special place to get away to enjoy family and friends --I am happy to know how it fits various needs and expectations. Unplugged from our busy lives, sequestered from the pull of jobs, computers and television-- we can open our ears to the quiet of nature and our eyes to see the joy of our children and pups running free on this quiet beach. Tarry awhile and rediscover youself and your loved ones. Cindy
