Oceanfront, dog-friendly chalet w/ beach access and amazing views
This lovely loft sits within the Alpine Chalets community, a collection of A-frame cottages located on a bluff above Beverly Beach. This Otter Rock vacation home makes a restful home base to explore the beautiful Oregon Coast.
The cozy chalet has a comfortable living room with an ocean view to enjoy as you relax on the sofa or play a board game at the table. Wood beams running overhead add a little extra mountain-style ambiance, and the chalet is filled with sunshine on clear afternoons.
The living and dining area is open to the full kitchen, where you'll find all the needed appliances, pots and pans, and dishes for serving meals. When the weather's nice, you can head out to the Alpine Chalets community picnic area for a summer barbecue.
There is one bedroom with a queen bed on the first floor, along with a full bath with tub/shower combo, making the home suitable for guests who would rather avoid stairs. When you do climb up to the loft, you'll find a second bedroom with two twin beds and an additional lofted living space. There's a queen-sized sleeper sofa as well as a second TV, so there will be enough space for the kids to spread out and have their own space to play or watch movies.
Altogether, six guests can share this charming chalet, as well as up to two dogs (though a nightly fee per dog and a minimum fee per stay will apply). There is cable and WiFi provided as well, so you can relax without feeling completely disconnected from the "real world".
Of course, the best part of the chalet is its location! A private trail leads right down to the beach (about a five minute walk altogether), and this beautiful stretch of sand is perfect for beach walks, flying kites, and running with the dogs. Newport and all its attractions are only eight miles to the south for shopping and dining, while Otter Rock's handful of restaurants are just half a mile away.

Our family came in from ND and MN for a memorial of one of our family members. The location is great and the Chalet had everything we needed to make our stay complete. They are older rentals and the stairs up to the loft are STEEP, although we really enjoyed our time and would book again.
Beautiful setting, a lovely wooded trail to the beach, chalet was very clean and tidy, short drive to restaurants in Depot Bay, Lincoln City or Newport.
This was such a lovely place to stay. I highly recommend it!
It was really gross. The place was not clean. Crumbs and sand on the floor. There was black mold along the baseboard. It smelled damp, musty and the odor is still difficult to get off of my clothes. There was dried food in the placemats. There was a torn cover to a DVD behind the TV. I paid close to 100 in cleaning fees and entered a disgustingly dirty unit. None of the plugs in the downstairs bathroom gave any power. The outlet where the upstairs TV was plugged in, only one of the plugs had power. The plug upstairs behind the bed was crooked behind the plate and sunk into the wall when you tried to plug into it.
Outlets did not work, the stove was broken and burners did not work. There were no screens on two of the windows. Several windows the blinds were broken off. The front curtain rod was snapped in the middle and did not have a clasp at the end.
I called as soon as I arrived, (waited 15 mins to talk to someone). I stated my concerns and asked to be moved. I was told I would get a call back. 2 hours later I called again (11 mins to talk to someone). I was told that they have had complaints about that unit before regarding the blinds. They told me they would call a manager and arrange to have the cleaning lady call me in the morning. (NO ONE CALLED BACK) I waited all day on day two for a call and no one called me. I called again in the evening (Waited 30 mins to talk to a live person) They said they were going to contact the unit owner and have that person call me. (NO ONE CALLED BACK) I called once more in the morning before I left. I was on hold for 45 mins. Never spoke with anyone. I left a lengthy message handwritten on the counter. I took pictures, video. This was no way to spend my vacation. I still have yet to hear any response.
I am still waiting for a call back. Supposedly Vacasa manages these properties. They are doing a horrible job. Customer service is awful. The unit was awful and I paid more money than what I got in return. I deserve a response. I paid close to $400 for 2 nights for crap.
We are very sorry to see this guest did not receive better service due to our local property manager being unavailable those days. We have followed-up on the situation, especially with our housekeeping team, and would like to apologize again for the matter and assure our guests it has been taken care of.
Only a few minutes north of Newport, these chalets are really cute, with great beach access, and a great beach! Chalet #3 has a bedroom downstairs, plus two beds and a sofa couch upstairs. The stairs are really steep. My girls loved it, but wouldn't be good for babies or people with mobility issues. Bathroom with shower downstairs, 2nd bathroom upstairs. Kitchen could be better stocked - only 2 dish towels, and 2 dishwasher pods. Not enough when you are there for 4 days. Cupboard had some vegetable oil, a pepper shaker, and an empty salt shaker (I bought salt and filled it). Just really minimal. Unit does not have a washer/dryer, but does have a dishwasher. We would stay again!
We love the Alpine Chalets. Clean, comfortable, and wonderful location.
The grounds are also kept beautifully.
This chalet is not fancy but it is clean and well kept. The grounds are very well kept with grassy spaces for picnics, campfires and direct access to the beach.
Two minute walk to the beach on a private path, between Depoe Bay and Newport close to Devils Punch Bowl. Awesome condo with an upstairs for the kids. Perfect check in system. We will absolutely stay here again!
Loved staying at the Alpine Chalet in Otter Rock. The access to the beach is very walkable, the beach is beautiful and big there, the campfire area is private and sheltered, and the place is dog friendly. My family of four, plus two dogs, plus my best friend and his dog all stayed very comfortably in #3. Plenty of beds, and space, and beautiful view of the ocean out of the loft window. The kitchen had everything I needed, and it was so nice to have a dishwasher, even though it was noisy, we just ran it while we were out on the beach playing.
The beach it a bit of a hike... One of our friends couldn't go because he could not handle the slope or the stairs, they kind of drop off. Other than that it was perfect for us.
We loved the fact that everything was in the chalet to function. The beds were comfortable enough to sleep on. The kitchen was full stocked with items to cook and clean with. All around this place was perfect us and we will stay again.
We enjoyed our weekend stay and found the accommodations cozy and well equipped for our small family (mom, dad, infant baby, and dog). The private beach access was great and we enjoyed the fact we didn't have to drive anywhere to comb the beach for whatever the tide brought in. We drove to the winery nearby for a tasting and the view and bought a bottle and drank it there we enjoyed it so much. It was a short drive into Newport for supplies or a beer at Rogue Brewery. We checked out both locations and preferred the actual brewery for all the activity that was going on in the brew house. The aquarium was really cool and worth checking out as well. We'd definitely stay here again.
Great location with picnic area and beach access.
We stayed at Chalet #3 for 3 nights. Loved the area and the beach. #3 is cute and cozy. Does need an update. But overall price and location well worth it. We will be back.
We had 6 in our party 2 adults 4 kids. It was nice to have the loft with a tv great space for the kids. The beach was beautiful and very few people.
It could really use a small laundry facility.
As a family we have been staying at Chalets for over 30 years. Part of the charm is they are older but they have always been clean and comfortable. This is the first time we stayed since new ownership and it isn't the same! Has a constant musty/moldy smell. You will have to get dishwasher soap because none is provided. We were given 4 towels, for 5 people, for 3 days. The beds need to be replaced. Upon leaving I pulled out twin beds upstairs to make sure my kids didn't loose something. Nothing of theirs but found food wrappers and either a sock or underwear (I wasn't going to investigate which one it was). Food and other items found under the pull out couch as well.
We have put new systems into place to resolve housekeeping issues. We apologize this was a problem at all. The musty home is due to the home being older and close to the ocean. We will work with the owner on finding a solution for this. We have made sure to fully stock towels in the home. Thank you!
We stayed in unit #3. This is a really nice little rental and the location is amazing. The interior could use a bit of updating, but everything was clean and well-maintained, and we were really happy that the caretakers have everything set up for recycling, even glass. Each rental has different owners, so they're very different from each other, and some of the units are lived in by permanent residents who may have early work, so you wouldn't want to have a big midnight kegger right there in the parking lot or in your unit. Don't get me wrong, we had a big crazy party on the beach until 3am with loud music and a beach fire, but they do ask you to respect reasonable quiet hours up at the rentals. The kitchen had everything we needed, well-stocked with clean dishes. The loft stairs are a little steep, but there's a kids' wonderland upstairs, with a half-bath, a TV, and lots of cool movies. The downstairs had a nice big table for dining and board games. The beds are pretty comfortable, but be advised that the two twin beds upstairs are kid beds with non-removable plastic coverings. We didn't try out either of the hide-a-beds but there are two available (one downstairs, one upstairs). There is a separate master bedroom downstairs with a queen bed and an ensuite bathroom. The shower was really clean and nice. Each room has its own heat control that blows through a wall vent, which makes the temperature in each room very customizable. This was also perfect for chilly nights when you just want to warm up your frozen toes. The property is well-maintained and the caretaker is very friendly and willing to answer questions and offer neat local tips. The property is about 300 feet up the cliff from the beach, but there is a wide and well-kept trail. It's not dangerous at all, but it might be a little steep for anyone with mobility issues and it is not ADA accessible. Along the trail there are some benches for relaxing and looking out over the ocean (great vantage point to see whales). Near the start of the trail there are clearings with fire pits and seating for vacationers who want a more campfire type feel as opposed to a beach fire. These fire pits are far from the beach and surrounded by lawn and greenery, and very close to the rentals for bathroom and beer run purposes but far enough away that your get-together won't bother sleeping folks. There was plenty of toilet paper stocked for us, but for longer stays, bringing TP, paper towels and garbage bags is recommended. There is a convenience store just down the road about a mile (at Beverly Beach turnoff) where you can stock up on firewood and snacks. Devil's Punchbowl State Park and the community of Otter Rock (same place) are a short 1/2 mile walk north up the beach, where did some wine tasting at The Flying Dutchman Winery and saw whales feeding really close to the rocks. Just perfect. If you want to stay in a nice little rustic spot and see what it feels like to be a resident of the Oregon Coast, stay here! Keep looking if you want a fancy modern place.
The location is great! Love the lawn area and so close to the beach. Will definitely stay here again! The maintenance man was soo nice and the property outside is well kept.
This is a nice, small house. It was perfect for my family of four, but could easily accommodate the 6 person limit. There are plenty of dishes and cookware in the kitchen we didn't have to eat out! There is a nice picnic area on the trail to the beach. My family enjoyed our short stay!
Not the most comfortable but lots of fun with kids. Bring wood and have a fire in the firepit in a private setting! Don't buy sand toys, they are provided for you. The unit does smell musty.
This little place was just fantastic !!! So cute little chalets overlooking the ocean it's beautiful and it has a private path down to the beach with some great picnic areas. Yes there were a few things that let you know that you were not in a five star room ,and if you want to go ahead and pay the extra 500 bucks for the room and be right next door to this place on the bluff you go right ahead. Because if you are a type a person who's looking behind toilet bowls and cracks in linoleum, shuddering at mold you shouldn't be at the tip of the Oregon coast with the most beautiful views you can imagine sitting out your front door. It's the North American rain forest, people go outside! you didn't go there for the room you came for the ocean...and it's so cool a little quick walk down to the beach and there it is private and beautiful and not a soul in sight I can't wait to get back. The two stories of the Chalet were great the kids had their own floor. We had a wonderful time! Thanks to the two people running around keeping it nice, painting and trimming and cleaning. Keep up the love and go to the beach and often as possible!!
It isn't a 5 star hotel. It isn't perfect. But it is perfect because you already know this and if you stay at the Alpine Chalet you stay here for the company, access to the beach, the wind, the air, and the atmosphere of a tucked away beach house that comes with a feel you can't get anywhere else.
We enjoyed our stay here. Close to the beach - a short, attractive walk to the water. It is downhill, which means uphill coming back, but it's not difficult. Our unit was quite comfortable, although the dishwasher wasn't working - it didn't even close correctly, which seemed like an issue that would have been identified well before our visit. My husband and I enjoyed our time with our daughter and her husband. Quiet and peaceful and we were able to bring my daughter's small dog, which was very nice.
The dishwasher door has been adjusted so it will close. The latch to close the door does require a bit of extra pressure, but everything works.
We attempted to stay at this Chalet 12/30/2015 but the house's original inhabitants (MICE) dissuaded us from staying here with our young children. Totally gross.
We apologize that your stay was ruined by mice. This guest was refunded in full for the situation, and we are actively working on making sure that they are no longer present in the home. This chalet has fabulous beach access, and we know our guests will enjoy it!
Cute little house, kind of awkward layout and the stairs are NOT friendly. If you have little toddlers or struggle with stairs don't stay here. The stairs are basically a ladder.
But its really close to Depot Bay and Newport. The beach is down a little hill and is very accessible. Great beach! The beach makes up for the funny little house.
But overall everything worked and was clean and was much better than a hotel and we had a great experience.
Overall a great place to stay. Lovely location and we especially enjoyed the picnic area, the benches overlooking the beach and the trail for private beach access.
We prefer to be independent and do not need daily housekeeping. So not having staff on the property during the week was fine with us. We enjoyed the quiet and had the place to ourselves.
There were a couple of items that were overlooked for our unit that we purchased for the week, such as couple of dish towels and some dish soap. No big deal. The chalet could use a deep cleaning after the summer season, but relatively clean for our stay. The beds are comfy, the sheets and pillows were clean. Overall, a very comfortable, pet friendly, place for our fall break. Thanks! We'll be back.
The building is old so it has a typical musty smell like most old places at the coast. Needs to be updated, but then I'm sure price would go up. The kitchen items were older and utensils mismatched, but that can be overlooked for the low price. The refrigerator worked as did the stove and dishwasher, so we could eat several of our meals without going out. Probably our only complaint was the stairs are narrow and steep up to the 2nd floor. I'm sure it met building codes, but it was a little tricky going down. This was our first stay here (have been visiting the area for 20+ years), and my children wanted to bring their dogs, which we've never done before. Was thankful to find this place, and happy that they accept dogs and even provide doggie doo bags. The path to the beach was nice though a little steep, which is often the case for the area. Would we stay there again? Probably if we were bringing dogs.
We spent ten days in Alpine Chalet #3. It was like staying at a family summer cottage that had been lovingly maintained over three generations. This isn't an ostentatious vacation showplace. It's built on charm and made for memory-making, the kind of place that has quirks for kids to remember forever and little for parents to be fussy about. The path to the beach is a bit steep, but so pretty to walk. Look for bunnies in the grill areas and don't miss the swingset tucked into the trees or the metal storage bin full of sand toys along the trail.
This little place is cozy , a little bit away from town. The beach is nice and private. The path is cozy like a storybook path. Not many people.
The staff was friendly.
The place is older and smells older. Maybe its because of all the moisture. It was ok because we were gone a lot. It had everything we needed.
And the price for the stay was reasonable.
