About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This treasure is unmatched for a traditional retreat to the beach. A mile south of downtown Cannon Beach and less than a city block’s walk to the sand, you can enjoy easy access to whatever your heart desires.

The Horner Beach House was built in 1928 to take advantage of the best view of Haystack Rock and the Needles. One of the original homes on the hill, the view includes an expansive panorama of the ocean as well as easy access to the beach. The house has just undergone an extensive remodel, preserving the beach cottage ambiance while ensuring that modern amenities make your experience comfortable.

There are several nesting pairs of bald eagles living in the hills behind the beach house. They fly directly overhead on their way to hunt on Haystack Rock. A fantastic spectacle! Haystack Rock is the best place on the coast to see Tufted Puffins from April to August. The Rock also hosts breeding Western Gull, Pelagic Cormorant, Pigeon Guillemot and Black Oystercatcher, Halequin Duck, Brown Pelican, and Peregrine Falcon seen in summer and Greater Scaup and Surf Scoter in Winter.

About Peggy Amato

When we were kids we used to go to Cannon Beach because our neighbors had a house there. Relatives from North Dakota were treated with trips to the beach whenever they visited. After the death of our father, our mom bought this house in 1974 looking forward to spending her retirement at the beach she so loved. It was a favorite spot for family and friends alike.

Mom wanted to share this beautiful spot with friends and began renting. We are happy to continue making the house available for others to enjoy.

Beautiful cottage with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little beach cottage! It is obvious that it was restored with lots of love and attention to detail. It was clean, comfortable and well located. The kitchen was well stocked, the fireplace kept us cozy and the beds were super comfortable. Definitely one of our all time favorite VRBOs! We hope to visit again for a longer stay.

Perfect place for our family.

  • 5 of 5

Our time spent in Cannon Beach was cold, rainy and windy but this house was very cozy filled with great views and fun games. Though our weekend could have been a flop because of the elements we had an amazing time because of this house.

50 is nifty

  • 5 of 5

First time stay here for an annual birthday beach trip to Cannon. This was such a fantastic place to stay. The story of this family home and it sympathetic remodel make it a great stay. Especially if you are coming during winter storms to watch the waves pound Haystack and the Needles...but fear not...O coast usually throws in some nice beach walk weather as well.

Perfect for families and close enough to walk into town. We'll stay here again

Perfect location! Amazing views. Loved the "extras" like the guest book and game/puzzle closet. Owners were very easy to work with. HIGHLY recommend.
