Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

This historical, dog-friendly beach home in Gearhart is just three blocks from the beach on a private acre of land surrounded by old-growth pine trees.

The Latourette House is located four blocks from Gearhart's downtown area with shops and cafes, and 11 miles down Highway 101 to Cannon Beach.

Originally built in 1892 (the first home built in Gearhart), this well preserved home is colorful with a touch of Southern gentry in its spacious floor plan and colorful prints. Entertainment includes board games to play, WiFi for streaming, cable, a VCR, and an iDock.

Gather in the naturally-lit living space with white furnishings and a wood-burning fireplace. Chat or nap—there's plenty of furniture to lounge upon.

Cook a delicious dinner in the full-service kitchen with dark counters and white cabinets. Inside is an antique dining area, or guests can head outside to eat while the kids chase the dogs around the yard (dogs are permitted with an additional nightly fee).

This is a four-bedroom, three-bathroom home that can sleep 10 guests (up to eight adults) comfortably year-round, with additional space available in the summer months. Each room is unique and colorful.

The master suite has a queen bed and a private fireplace, plus a private DVD player for movie nights and deck access.

The second bedroom has a double bed, the third has a single twin, and the fourth has two twin beds with another TV set. There is an additional day bed in the living room.

Two bathrooms have walk-in showers, and one has an antique soaking tub for relaxing baths.

In the summer time, the downstairs sleeping porch with screened windows may be used as an additional sleeping space with two twin beds. This one-of-a-kind space has been turned into the owner's family "wall journal" with unique wall art. This room is not insulated, so it is not suitable for sleeping in cold weather.

A washer/dryer is available for mid-vacation laundry days.

For family trips in a historic home, or groups of friends who want to explore the Coast together, check out the Latourette House in Gearhart!

*Please note that the sleeping porch is a preserved record of the owner and their family. You are more than welcome to view this preserved "wall journal", but please do not add to it.*

About Vacasa, OR - Oregon Coast Office

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.

<br>

<br>

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.

<br>

<br>

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!

Old home with character in a cute neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at this house but it was not without some surprises. The home is smaller than I expected but the front room is very nice and sunny. The layout of the home is a bit quirky. The shower and bathroom in the yellow room is very tiny but the bathroom and shower downstairs is decent size. My boys loved the old bathtub in the 3rd bathroom. I do wish the green and blue rooms had queen beds instead of twins. We did not use the graffiti room as it was far too chilly. We did have an incident with the stove. It is an older stove/oven and I don't think the temperature was regulating correctly and one of the dishes broke in the oven. Another thing to note is that the windows do not open at all. We would have loved to have fresh air moving through the house. The beach was much further than we expected and our 3 year old was not a fan of the walk. Overall we did enjoy the home but I really do wish the owners would take time to upgrade certain things while keeping the integrity of the home.

Very neat old house.

  • 4 of 5

We looked it up and saw that this was the first house in Gearhart, loved the historical aspect. Only complaint was that a double bed in the room with one single would be much more convenient.

This house is good for a larger group of people. It is very old, so expect the usual old house quirks. The upstairs doesn't get much heat . The lot is big with plenty of room for activities. People in the area regularly cut through the yard to get between streets, which was a nuisance since we had dogs who didn't like strangers wandering through the yard. The beach is a little farther than expected and once you get through the neighborhood there's a decent walk through dunes before you get to the water.

The strangest thing was that in the middle of our stay a man arrived at the door and said he was an owner and needed to get some things. He retrieved a couple shovels from the back room. It felt a little invasive having a stranger walk through the house when we were all in the midst of various activities. I think it would have been more appropriate to coordinate this visit with Vacasa, or wait a day until we checked out.

Lovely Historical Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 5 nights here in March with a maximum of 9 people one night and a small dog. The house was great. Old farmhouse that seems to have been added onto over the years. The sunroom was a wonderful place to hang out with people playing games, reading and enjoying a nice fire. Beds were comfortable and the house was clean. The kitchen was well outfitted with lots of pots and dishes. There is a little town area about 2 blocks away with numerous coffee shops, a bakery, good restaurant, small grocery, art shop and candy store. The beach was about 4 blocks away and took a maximum of 10 minutes to reach. Overall I would definitely recommend this home and was very pleased with the service we got from staff at Vacasa.
