Oceanside Big Stump Beach getaway - dog-friendly, romantic, and cozy!
Seeking a quaint oceanfront property for you and your loved one? Thinking a kitchen would be nice for cooking homemade meals each night? Then look no further than this Waldport vacation rental at the Cape Cod Cottages - you'll have your go-to getaway spot for your next beach adventure!
Located right on Big Stump Beach in Waldport, you can lounge in the sun while listening to the waves, comb the shores for seashells, or even catch sight of a whale or two. Waldport beaches are also known for being great places for fishing, clamming, and crabbing. Though perhaps the most interesting feature of this beach is the stump itself - a 14-foot tall stump that offers a peek into the ancient forests that covered this area before the beaches ever existed.
Head into this relaxing living space from the glass sliding doors that offer beautiful ocean views. Settle into the comfortable sofa to stare out into the sea, or watch your favorite cable show or DVD on the flatscreen TV. In the morning, wander out to the deck to breathe in the fresh ocean air.
When it's time to prepare delicious meals, the kitchen has all the necessities you'd need to make anything from pancakes for breakfast to a roast chicken for dinner. You'll have a microwave, stove, and a refrigerator, as well as a coffee maker. Use the dining table to enjoy long meals or an evening game of cards. Or set up your laptop to use this home's WiFi for catching up on emails.
At night, the cozy bedroom awaits - complete with a queen sized canopy bed and an antique dresser. The adjacent full bathroom has a shower/tub combo for long luxurious baths. All in all, this home sleeps two guests comfortably, plus two dogs for an additional nightly fee.
Waldport is the perfect quiet location where you can enjoy peaceful, natural beaches yet still be close to bigger towns like Yachats or Newport. Take a day trip to Newport to check out the various museums, shops, and eateries. Or head to Yachats for even more options. For your next beach excursion, head off the beaten path and make the Cape Cod Cottages in Waldport your destination.
Proximity to the beach was really nice and so was the view. We enjoyed the beach very much. However, the cottage is very sparse in comfort. There was only one glass in the kitchen cupboard so we bought a couple of dollar store tumblers to use. It appeared tidy when we arrived but on further inspection, the housekeeping was not great. I rewashed all the dishes as they were rather filmy. We moved the couch a bit and the floor was dirty underneath and I found some kind of dried sea molusk under there - ewww. The floors could have used a good vacuum and mopping. The bathroom and bedroom were clean. But no extra blankets and the comforter and pillow shams have seen better days. Very threadbare. Luckily I keep an extra fleece throw in my car. It came in handy. I know this is not a great review, but it's honest. The location is what's going for this place, not the place itself.
The ocean view is picture perfect. The beach is iconic for Oregon. Learning the history of Big Stump beach was a great addition. The accommodation is comfortable. This is a place to return to.
Great view, had a great time.
This place was super cute and comfortably cozy! Love how close to the beach we were! We would definitely come back!!
My own little house, with beach access. Ali the amenities of home.
House was a little dusty but still clean. Everything worked, easy walk to the beach, overall a nice quiet place to stay and watch the ocean.
Cute little cottage just steps from the sand. Quiet and reasonable price- love that the dogs could join us. Oven temp didn't work and bed was very uncomfortable. When we told them about the oven they offered 10% off next trip.
second visit. we will return
Besides some pet hair on the furniture, the space was well-equipped with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The main problem is that the porch overlooking the ocean was very rickety, had a piece of plywood haphazardly nailed to it to block the stairs, and had multiple rungs of the railing missing completely.
We are actively working with the owner on rectifying this issue. Thanks!
Very nice cottage with all the furnishings on the beach. These cottages have beautiful sights of the beach. The surrounding area has allot to see. I would recommend staying there.
Everything was great, we came to have a movie night and the TV was cheap and echoed somewhat. May want to consider updating as it was the only negative part of the unit.
To find this place so close to 101 and so far removed from the sound. Just ocean sounds and views.
We enjoyed our stay at the cottages very much. Our unit was very clean and inviting. Toni was a delight as a property manager. We are staying again in a couple of months.
Much more spacious than we had anticipated. Clean with a great view. We didn't access the beach but it was a pretty short walk. Highly recommend.
Perfect location for walks on the beach. Property interior is a little dated but cozy and comfortable.
The property manager Toni was very helpful.
I find the cottages to be very clean and cozy and are a great place to stay. I will avoid using Vacasa services in the future; however, the cottage itself is a great place to go and unwind.

We stayed a week and it didn't seem long enough. The view from the window and glass door was grand. The deck was very private. The bed exceeded our expectations for comfort. It is one of those experiences that makes you feel right at home the moment you arrive.
Our unit was wonderfully close to the ocean! Quiet area. Building is older but well maintained. Great place to relax!
Perfectly located between Yachats and Walport and directly on the beach, this little place is stocked for your short stay. Trust me, that's all you'll want.
After 2 days and nights in Unit #1 listening to the guests below you slam doors and their kids whooping and hollering, you'll be ready to go. Not to mention watching guests take their dogs out and not cleaning up after them. So avoid the immediately accessible beach or you'll come back with more than just shells and sand in your shoes.
And, while you're at it, avoid the deck! The hokey construction, boarded off stairs blocking your direct access to Puppy Bomb Beach and the 2x4's with screws sticking out of them laying on it should all be seen as red flags. Just open the slider and listen to the ocean, then go find another beach section to comb.
Feel free to draw and write messages on the dusty furniture, it's fun! And don't move the furniture to look underneath because the cleaning staff didn't get there either.
The peeling paint in the bathroom gives it "character", right?! And if you're over 5'5", you won't fit under the shower head. My 6' tall husband was clean from the nipples down!
Overall we enjoyed our vacation, complimented with yummy coffee daily at the stand in Walport, great pizza from Grand Central and an excellent dinner at The Adobe in Yachats. However, for the cost, we'll stay elsewhere next time we visit the coast.
We are sorry if this stay was not as enjoyable as anticipated. We are working with the city on getting the necessary improvements to update and upgrade the cottage. In the meantime, we will work with housekeeping on dusting and getting under the furniture. Thanks!
This place is great. Right on the beach. Since it is south from Newport/Lincoln City, you get away from the crowd. Not much to do here as far as shopping, but we were looking to disconnect and just spend all our time at the beach on the ocean. We loved it.
It was a beautiful view and everything was very comfortable. We loved our stay here.
We stayed at this little peace of heaven for our honeymoon, it was a lovely place right on the beach, bomb fires every night and playing on the beach during the day, not to far from Waldport, which is a cute little town, if you love to crab, it's a cute and quiet spot to enjoy your day. The salty Dawgs restaurant was a wonderful spot for lunch. We will definitely be back. We loved every minute of it. It's definitely our little peace of heaven...
This unit was very clean. Staff met us and were friendly and helpful.
Furniture and all were fine. But lacked character or charm. Make it more inviting.
My issue is the grounds. The deck and all exterior is very run down. Needs sanding and painting. Grass areas need landscaping help.
We apologize for any aesthetic unpleasantness this guest experienced. We do have landscaping tending to the home once a week. It's just a time of year where it's difficult to keep up with the growth. We are currently in the process of getting the necessary permits to redo the decks and add hot tubs. We'll keep our guests posted! Thanks!
The cabin was clean and well appointed, Lots of things to do close by!
Love the rustic feel of being in the cottage. Clean and had most anything you need. You need to bring your own spices for cooking. Loved listening to the waves of the ocean everyday and access to the beach. The cottages are located within short drives to all the other cities on the coast in central Oregon.
This cute little cottage is perfect for a weekend getaway. The look is fairly dated, but the couch and bed were comfortable. I would recommend bringing a fan, as there is no A/C and it got warm...too stuffy to sleep well. It's location on the highway gets a little noisy, but that is the price you pay for being close to the beach. We would definitely return.
We loved this little cottage! It was amazingly clean and very cozy. The housekeeping staff was very friendly as well.
Perfect place to stay if you want to stay right on the bench.
we had a really good experience.
great beach and location to a lot of fun stuff on the coast
Great place to stay. Staff goes out of their way to be helpful. View is a "million dollar" one. JJ (our rescue dog) really loved the beach walks.
This place is so clean and cozy with incredible views. The staff was friendly and extremely accommodating. Pet friendly is extremely important to me and i never felt like my dog was an inconvenience or unwelcome. I will be back and recommend cape cod cottages to everyone i know. Im looking forward to exploring other properties offered by vacasa 5 stars for sure!!
Perfect location, easy beach access, beautiful view of the ocean from the couch :) Staff was very friendly and helpful. Unit was clean and fully stocked for our needs. We'll definitely go back again!
Wonderful place to stay! We appreciate the privacy of not being bothered by staff/cleaners/check in-check out interactions. (We are introverts who don't like to talk to people, lol) The price plus being able to walk to the beach in like 30 steps is a huge draw to this location. Huge windows with gorgeous views of ocean and beach make visiting on rainy days just as enjoyable.
Had a great time there. Room was very clean, views of the ocean was a perfect spot. Rented in the past before and never had a problem with Vacasa always have a great vacation. Thank you
Quiet and peaceful. Sparse and very uncomfortable furniture, seamed like no one had been in the unit in months with the dust and cob webs. Beautiful view with easy access to the beach. Bring games and entertainment in case of storms.
We apologize that housekeeping missed the dust and cobwebs. We'll get those cleaned up!
Beach was great, cottage comfortable, would I return again-yes
We had a wonderful time. The unit was clean, and well appointed. We would come back again in the future.
Clean cottage with above average cooking tools. Great beach.
Had a real nice stay. We have stayed at Cape Cod unit #1 for many years. Kind of like a second home. Booking was easy. The place was clean and well furnished. The view from the deck is great. It is a central location to many interesting places.
Our stay was wonderful. Definetly will be back next year!
The unit (#1) was a bit hard to find when we arrived after dark, the door is sort of hidden behind the bushes. Once we checked in, everything was pleasing. The unit was spacious and clean, with nicely equipped kitchen. The best part is the ocean view from the balcony. Very easy beach access. Overall, we had a good stay.
We stayed here a couple nights and absolutely loved it! There was a great view of the ocean, and it was so close (not like other spots we've stayed that had quite a hike down to the beach). The room was very nice and clean. I'd highly recommend considering this place for a nice getaway! It was a glorious weekend :)
Excellent location to enjoy the beach.
It was a great place to relax, enjoy friends and walk on the beach. the sunsets are amazing.
Would highly recommend this place! I had such a relaxing weekend and wonderful experience.

We wanted a place to listen to the ocean and walk the beach. This is it! For sheer relaxation with everything one could need (except a blender!), this is it. If you want luxury, try again. If you want peace, quiet, and exceptional beaches and views, this is it!
This unit is just right! Beautiful beach view and easy access. Spotlessly clean, all the necessities... Dishes and cutlery were new and quality. Cookware and utensils the same. The bed! VERY comfortable mattress and the softest sheets ever. Our only change would be the addition of a comfy chair. This place is rustic, but very charming. If you want a spa experience, go elsewhere but for sheer charm, peace and quiet come here. We will definitely be back.
Nice comfortable one room cottage. There is a sliding glass door and large picture window so better view of the beach than I thought there might be. Also, our little deck was private and I thought it might be shared with the other cottages. No dishwasher, but that wasn't a problem. The view was better than anticipated.
Fantastic long weekend with our dogs. Love it there!
I very much enjoyed staying here. The private beach access was wonderful, and it was nice not to have to bring dishes. I would definitely recommend this area. Restaurants are a bit of drive, however.
I took a few days for a much-needed solo trip to the coast to get some writing done, and this cottage was practically perfect. I think the chair and couch could use replacing, but otherwise the place was exactly what I needed. Vacasa was quick to respond when I had a problem with the local WiFi connection, too.
And that ocean view! Amazing! I definitely plan on visiting again in the future.
excellent Location, clean, spacious and complete but with an very bad bed! I even think that the have change it cause i was another bed then in the pictures we saw. This bed is to soft and whenever my husband turned, i would definately do to!
But the beach makes up everything and the sunsets. The cottage looks and is very old. But it is clean and it feels like home immediately. We had nog deck chairs so we asked for them and got them. Not the best chairs but, we could sit outside.
All in all we had a wonderful time. The units are spacious and very clean . Maybe 700 sqft? The private deck offered great views. Perfect spot to watch the sunset and have a glass of wine. This is a rustic beach house experience, which I prefer over a hotel resort,so don't expect a porter to carry your bags in for you. My only complaints are minor. I could tell which was shampoo and which was conditioner, and there was only one wine glass. Gotta have at least two wine glasses. Thanks Vacasa for a wonderful stay.
We had a wonderfully perfect weekend. It couldn't have been more perfect. He's been gone for threes years and it was the perfect getaway for some alone time. We LOVED it!!
We searched the internet for a cottage on the coast for a one night getaway. Cape Cod cottages seemed affordable for the time of year. It worked perfect for us. Ocean view, fireplace and no view of traffic. If you are looking for a reasonably priced place to spend a quiet night with your spouse with a view then this is the place. Will stay here again.
We've stayed with Vacasa a few times in the past two years, with mixed results. The first stay was fabulous. The second stay the house was great but needed some minor maintenance for safety, but despite notification from us, was not addressed in a timely manner.
This last stay was a last-minute thing. We showed up in Yachats looking for a room, knowing there were plenty available, and decided to check out the Ocean Cove Inn (beautiful rooms, BTW). The on-site manager was great, and after asking about the Cape Code Cottages, got us set up with Unit 1. He admitted the unit wasn't as modern as the room we had seen at Ocean Cove, but they were in the process of updating them all.
He was right - the cottage was dated. But it was clean, had a full kitchen, and direct access to the beach. And surprisingly quiet given the proximity to the road. For the price it was a great deal. Be aware that most of these are more like duplexes, sharing a wall with the cottage next to it.
We will definately be back, especially since they allow dogs.
It's quiant, quiet and the most beautiful setting one can imagine. We were there during the full moon, skies were clear and it was amazing at sunset. Miles of beach with no one insight. Can't go wrong.
