Spacious dog-friendly cottage w/yard - walk to beach! Weddings welcome!
Spend a peaceful Oregon Coast getaway at this charming, dog-friendly Gearhart vacation rental with an enclosed yard and easy beach access! This classic, wood-shingled beach bungalow has everything you'll need, including a Ping-Pong table, for a memorable trip or intimate wedding in this wonderfully quiet beachside community.
The cottage is located a block from Gearhart Ocean State Park and within a mile of the historic Gearhart Golf Links. Bring stand-up paddleboards and kayaks to explore nearby Neawanna Creek, then finish your day with dinner and a pint at McMenamins Sand Trap located just a mile away in the heart of the community.
Inside, you'll find a clean design with hardwood floors, knotty pine walls, a large plaid sectional sofa, and a gas fireplace with a gorgeous stone facade. Returning from a walk on the beach, warm up in front of the fire while you talk about the day or listen to the Bose stereo. French doors lead out to an enclosed yard, complete with a patio and gas grill. The enclosed space is the perfect place to let the dogs and kids play, or set up an archway and chairs for an intimate wedding ceremony.
There is a large wooden dining table in this open living space, making family meals easy to plan and serve. And in the full kitchen, the chef in your group will be treated to granite countertops, a dishwasher, refrigerator, stovetop/oven, microwave, and even a coffee grinder. Bring your own beans from home or pick some up in neighboring Cannon Beach's Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters.
The main level has a comfortable bedroom with two twin beds (perfect for kids!), as well as the full bathroom, complete with a separate shower and a soaking tub. When you stay at the Peaceful Cottage in Gearhart, you'll also have a laundry room with a washer and dryer - so don't worry about keeping clothes clean while you explore the Coast!
Head upstairs for family time in the fun game room, which is ideal for music lovers as it provides a keyboard. In addition, everyone will appreciate the air hockey table, mini pool table, DVD player, and the VCR. Bring your favorite movies from home, or pick one from the shelves. There are two sofas for seating, so everyone can find a spot for movie nights. WiFi is provided as well so you can stay connected to the office or your favorite blog.
Two of the three upstairs bedrooms have queen beds, and the other has a full bed. All of the bedrooms have cozy, colorful quilts, bedside tables, and reading lamps. Everyone will want to sleep in and have a relaxing morning here! Up to two dogs (weighing 60 pounds or less) are welcome with an additional nightly fee. Human guests can number 10.
This great Gearhart location is just blocks from a beautiful stretch of sandy beach. A peaceful, quintessential beach town, you can spend your days unwinding at the shore, perusing through one of the handful of shops and galleries, or playing a round of golf at the course. Plus, most attractions in town are walkable from your door!
On days you don't feel like preparing lunch or dinner, walk to Pacific Way Cafe for one of the best meals that you'll find in the area. More options are just south in neighboring Seaside. If you feel like exploring, Astoria is 15 miles north and boasts many restaurants, museums, and shops. And in 11 miles, you can be browsing galleries, walking along the beach by Haystack Rock, or sipping a mocha at Sleepy Monk in artsy, popular Cannon Beach.
The quiet and charming oceanside community of Gearhart is an ideal location for a Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental. Come enjoy a carefree beach getaway or plan your special wedding day at this peaceful cottage filled with entertainment amenities, gleaming hardwood floors, and tons of classic beach cottage character!

Everything in place in the house as advertised. All the essentials for a beach house, and very easy access to beach and Gearhart town. Great back deck and yard to enjoy the morning sunrise. We will be back.
Location is great, home is well appointed for families.
Second time I’ve stayed here. Once again it did not disappoint. Perfectly located, clean and comfortable. I wish there were a few more kitchen utensils, but that is about the only thing I would improve.
We have inventoried the kitchen and added any items that were missing. Thank you!
This is a great house for a family vacation. Well stocked and a comfortable layout. Fenced in backyard was a real plus. The trail to the beach is directly across the street and you can hear the surf at night with the the windows open. We would defiantly recommend this house to friends and family.
Plenty of space for everyone, including bathrooms. Loved the short walk to the beach and the quiet neighborhood. This is our second stay and Peaceful Cottage and the only place we will choose on our next trips to Gearhart.
This little cottage had a great feel with plenty of room for our family. It was walking distance to the beach where we enjoyed razor clamming. It had all the need amenities. We didn't need the TV, instead used our music. The kids enjoyed the air hockey table and played clue. The garbage man was very kind to help us on garbage day. Close to seaside for shopping and Astoria where we fished.
We spent a week here. The location to the beach is awesome. However there were some issues with the property.
Overall there is outdated furniture, No master bedroom, Kitchen supplies worn and minimal. The TV is outdated, no cable available---but we brought apple TV with us and could not hook this up.
Backyard was big and our dogs loved it, but did not feel very private. They loved running on the beach though!
easily accommodated many people.
location was the only upside, the description is misleading, not enough room for ten, no parking does not park four cars, snotty rude neighbors, not enough plates etc in house for guests, poorly furnished, very disappointed for the price we paid
The house was comfortable, tidy, and in a beautiful location. LOVED the soaking tub, all the windows, the large dining table, gas stove, and fenced back yard for our small dog.
It is about 1/4 mile walk to the beach, but it is a gorgeous trail through grassy dunes to a wide, beautiful beach. We loved walking it.
Be prepared for small beds (queens seemed more like full sizes) and no closets. there are drawers and shelves to store some clothes.
Nice house, but none of the bedrooms have closets. The only place to hang clothes is a crowded hall closet downstairs. The location is great, but one small outdated TV isn't enough. It listed a ping pong table was at the house, but we couldn't find it. And the air hockey machine doesn't work. If some more was put into the house to upgrade the amenities I think it would be a great vacation house.
Let me start off by saying the house is great, as is the location. The reason I am giving it such a low rating is the new neighbor that backs up to the backyard. This house allows dogs, which is one of the main reasons I booked it. I payed for my mothers and aunts dogs to join us, as we love coming to the beach every summer. These dog are very well behaved, and this is coming from a person that does not own them, one of them is a service animal.
The first morning we were there the dogs barked (this is not an exaggeration) three times before eight o'clock. The new neighbor I refrenced, knocked on the door and rudely told us he was going to call the cops because the "barking was waking up the whole neighboorhood." We apologized and insured not a bark came out of the dogs the rest of the day. The next day at around 3:00pm the dogs were in the yard with my mother and aunt playing ball, and as they were playing the barked 10 times over 15 or 20 minutes. The neighbor then starts yelling over the fence that he is going to call the cops, as the dogs are being a nucence among other rude comments. This same thing happens again the next day, acter my aunt plays outside with the dogs in the afternoon. We then get a visit from VACASA, who knocks on the door as three of the dogs are outside (and not a bark from them) who doesn't necessarily make my aunt feel welcome.
Do not rent this house if you are bringing a dog, the neighbor will ruin your vacation, even to the point of actually cusing you out as you leave.
We sincerely apologize for the situation this guest found themselves in. The property manager went to visit the guest due to a request from the owner who had been receiving complaints from the neighbor. Upon arrival the property manager did find the dogs to be well-behaved. Nevertheless, as a precaution, we have lowered the maximum dog limit to 1. Thanks!
The GOOD- overall decor of the home, cleanliness, having washer/dryer, good linen supply, enough place settings, game closet, air hockey, separate living spaces for adults & kids, fenced backyard, dog-friendly, hammock on the back deck. Close to Seaside. Windows were great for lots of fresh air.
The NOT SO GOOD- comfort & condition of the living room furniture (very bad!), kitchen supplies for cooking/serving & the disorganization of the kitchen, the long walking distance to the beach, and no TV other than an older DVD/VCR player.
This was a great spot for our family vacation. We had 2 grandparents, a family of 4 (kids ages 3 yrs and 9months) and a family of 3 (kid age 6 months). The house was great for us. Close enough to the beach that we could return for naps. House was clean and well maintained. We would recommend this house to our friends and family.
We had a fantastic time! We had 6 adults, 3 kiddos and two dogs, and the house was perfect for us. Kitchen was well stocked, rooms/beds comfortable and plenty of games and backyard space. It was a close walk to Pacific Way Cafe and Sweet Shop, not to mention very close to the beach. We loved this place and will certainly try to rent again. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
Love Gearhart! Cute house, clean, great location, nice neighbors. We will come back.
Our family had a great time relaxing and enjoy the surrounding area! We were happy there was no TV because it forced us to play games and spend time with one another. Great weekend of bonding, relaxation, and fun!
I was happy with location We love Gearhart. The property was clean and the staff was helpful but the overall feel of the house was is wasn't a family home just a rental so it didn't have that homey touch are feel as if it was a real home but a hotel rental. But overall it was a good time. The weather was great and we shopped and saw a heard of elk. So we had a great time.
Close to the beach, very comfortable stay for 6, would do it again.
Cozy home in a great location. Kitchen was very "modestly" stocked with cookware, etc. We needed to borrow and buy things in order to cook and serve a nice dinner. Would definitely bring more things from home if we rent this home again.
Great house and location - can walk to the beach and to a coffee shop and grocery store. Short drive to Seaside. The backyard was great to relax in. Will stay again!
Disappointing condition of house. Size just right for our family get together.
Over all, the home and it's content were what we hoped for. I recommend others to rent and stay there. I will be more than pleased,to rent it again. Thank you for everything.
Very nice, clean and comfortable stay in a quiet neighborhood with a short walk through the dunes to the beach.
Love this cottage and enjoy ourselves each time we visit.
Had a great time at this property. Beautiful quiet neighborhood with wild life along the beach. Was awesome to see. The local acquirium was pretty impressive too. Had a great time while in Gearhart.
We had a great stay with 2 adult couples and 3 kids (all under 10). We had plenty of room to roam and have individual space if needed. Even during the rainy days, almost all of them, we had plenty to do to keep us occupied. The cottage is a short walk to the beach which made it nice not to have to load up in a vehicle when full of wet clothes and sand! The cottage also has an outside shower which proved extremely useful in regards to removing sand.
Overall, our stay was wonderful and relaxing. The location of the cottage is great. Away from the hustle of Seaside but really close to go join the hustle when we wanted to. The cottage falls just short of a 5 star rating due to the comparison I have to other rentals that truly earned the 5 star rating.
we have a great time except for the carpenter ants
We apologize that there were ants in the home during your stay. The Property Manager will work on a solution to make sure they are no longer a nuisance.
Nice location, very close to the water. Updated kitchen.
We had the best time at this getaway. The rec area upstairs made it great for the kids to play and the adults to visit downstairs. The weather was pleasant. Very quiet neighborhood, we felt safe all the time.
Arrived with 7 other adults and found note on kitchen counter that dishwasher was not functional. Be ready for COOL shower/bath if you turn water heater to recommended setting. Air hockey table not working. Bikes with no brakes, broken seats, and flat tires. Dining room table had serious burn scars and all dining room chairs had unidentifiable, gross stains. Espresso machine occupied by greyish-brown muck. Front porch light not working, which made lockbox and door lock challenging. Place needed thorough cleaning .
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We sincerely apologize for the several issues you encountered during your stay. We take guest feedback very seriously and will make improvements as quickly as possible. We hope you found the home spacious enough for your group and enjoyed the beautiful area!
The house was very spacious. It had a great backyard with a hammock that's been kept up very nicely. there's plenty to do, the beach is close, there's ping pong, air hockey, plenty of board games and books to read. Our group was very pleased and would definitely stay at the peaceful cottage again.
Have stayed at Peaceful Cottage twice and both times were fantastic. Plan to stay a few days every year when we visit Oregon.
We had a great time and can't wait to come back!
We came to play golf. We came away loving Gearhart and Peaceful Cottage.
The house was clean and comfortable. The Bose radio was really appreciated.
The house was a great fit for our weekend stay with friends. The yard was fenced and large enough for the kids and small dog to play. The location was great, only a short walk to the beach and bakery. We enjoyed our stay!
thank you for the lovely home everyone was pleased and what a roomy home we would love to do it again soon
It seemed strange to us that the only television was upstairs and not in the main sitting area downstairs...BUT it is the perfect place to visit with friends and family.
Kids enjoyed bicycles, porch hammock, Japanese bath and exploring the house and property. House met our needs!
If you are looking for a get away then this is the place to stay. The beach access via a small trail is a short walk away.
Quiet peaceful area. Will definitely come back. Loved the idea of no TV on main floor.
We were very pleased with the house and the location. it was a very quite neighborhood and extremely relaxing. we loved that the house was only like a 5 minute drive to Seaside and I was happy to see a Dutch Bros right down the HWY from the house. i will definitely be looking into renting this house again. Thank you Vacasa!
Thank you for this great review! We are so glad that you loved the home and the great location.
We had three families share the house (6 adults 4 kids), and it was very nice and comfortable...we mostly used the living area...the location is great for kids to just go and explore the little town, or for everyone to just go to the beach. Overall it was a great stay!
