Nestled between the Cape Meares Lake and the Pacific Ocean lies the Heron's Nest. With enticing ocean views and beach access just two blocks away, this family and pet-friendly contemporary home has everything you need for your ideal beach vacation.
Cape Meares is a tranquil community with no services but plenty of natural wonders to keep you entertained: From the long stretch of sandy beaches, the bay for clamming and fishing to the historic lighthouse for hiking and wildlife viewing. Cape Meares is also a short drive from Tillamook for quaint restaurants, grocery stores, museums and more!
There is electric forced air heat that keeps you warm on chilly nights, and a nice wood fireplace for warmth as well. There are a wide array of board and card games as well as books to keep the whole family entertained. The home also includes a 32" HDTV with a DVD and VCR player, as well as a few DVDs for movie watching. There is also WiFi access for your convenience.
As you enter the spacious great room, you are greeted by a window wall of wonderful ocean views that stretch from one end of the room to the other. The oversized leather couches face the ocean and even recline to offer the maximum amount of relaxation and comfort.
A well-appointed open kitchen, dishwasher, and expandable dining table that seats 6 and expands to 12 makes cooking family meals an enjoyable experience. There are eight extra chairs and a folding table as well that could be used for ocean view meals on the wrap-around deck outside.
This two-level home has two bedrooms; the first is on the ground floor with a comfy queen bed and sliding door access to the open backyard, which backs to a lawn and the forest -- great for views of Cape Meares Lake and wildlife, and for enjoying the outdoor fire pit. There is a full bathroom with a washer and dryer on the ground floor as well. The second room upstairs includes another queen bed with plush bedding and a set of bunk beds. The second full bathroom is on the upper floor as well.
In addition, the garage is host to a plethora of outdoor toys. From sand pails to a clam gun and a canoe (transportation of canoe not provided), you'll have plenty to do down at the beach and lake. You can even use the tide clock in the living room to find the best time to check out the tide pools and caves in the nearby cove!

Vacasa - Vacation Rentals Made Easy:
Professionally managed and cleaned homes

Secure INSTANT booking
Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.
Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.
Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!
Very quiet residential neighborhood and not high density. ocean beach VERY close. perfect for a small family or 2 couples or less. The owner has provided a number of amenities like a canoe for the walk to lake. Close enough to town to get there and far enough away to not be there. All in all a nice rental.
What a relaxing setting. Cell phone reception was non-existent, but it sure made for a quiet retreat - which was lovely. Wish we could have stayed longer.
This was a great guest house that was really clean and had really close beach access. We would walk down to the beach every morning and then several times a day after that! It was only about a 5 minute easy walk. Tillamook is very close by (Maybe 10-15 min drive) for groceries, restaurants and etc, which was good because there are really no amenities in Cape Mears. Rockaway Beach was only about a 30-35 minute drive south, which is a little more touristy with a few candy shops and other little shops and a nice beach which was fun. Overall a very good experience. If you like secluded like we do, this is a perfect spot! Some mornings there were only about 10 other people on the beach..if that. Very quiet place to relax.
The house was great and fit all of our needs. The beach is only a short walk away and you will enjoy the quiet, peaceful scenery. This beach area is not packed like Cannon Beach with lots of tourists, so if you are looking for a quiet area this house is great.
Great house, close to the beach, in a very nice quiet neighborhood. The house is approximately 15 minutes to Tillamook, for all of your grocery needs. I would definitely stay here again.
