Comfortable oceanfront cottage w/ easy beach access - dogs ok!
With ocean views in a quiet and peaceful setting, this charming Waldport vacation rental is just the destination you were seeking for your next beach getaway. All on one floor, this Cape Cod Cottage is perfect for those travelers who may have trouble with stairs.
This cottage is located right on Big Stump Beach, which is famous for its mysterious redwood stump that may have once been a part of a sprawling forest before the beach ever existed. Wander the sandy shores collecting shells or sea glass, explore the tide pools, or gather the evening's meal by clamming, crabbing, and fishing. You may even catch sight of a whale or two passing through from this serene shoreline.
Step into this rustic cabin through the sliding glass doors into the living room. You'll have beautiful views of the water through the big picture window and a flatscreen TV with cable for relaxing with your favorite shows. You can also spend some time uploading photos using the provided WiFi. In addition, the couch turns into a sofa bed for more sleeping space.
In the kitchen, you will have just about everything you need to create delicious breakfasts of pancakes and eggs, or perhaps you'll just heat up some leftovers from the night before. There's also a little dining table with room for four.
When it's time to turn in for the night, the bedroom has a cozy queen sized bed. Adjacent to this room is a full bathroom with a walk-in shower. Altogether, this home sleeps four guests. You can even bring up to two family dogs for an additional nightly fee. So no one needs to get left behind on this fun beach getaway!
Waldport is a quiet oceanside town, yet has easy access to Newport where you can wander the shops to pick out some souvenirs or enjoy a delicious meal from one of the various eateries. Or head to Yachats for even more options. When looking for a peaceful getaway with your family or loved ones, the Cape Cod Cottages offer simple accommodations in the perfect location.
These are not standalone cottages, but some attached condos built in the fifties. Units 4 and 7 have upstairs units, and the stomping and noise was irritating. The knotty pine interiors were cool, the kitchen just fine, but the furniture was thrift shop quality, the gas fireplace had issues, and the unit was drafty because there is no weatherstripping under the doors. Chairs were lumpy and uncomfortable. Back deck was slippery as heck, maybe a little 30 second outdoor cleaner? Right side deck windscreen was missing which made the deck uncomfortable and cold. There were two key lockboxes in the tiny carport (BTW, it's too small unless you have a smart car) which was very confusing. Parking lot had no exterior lighting, and was spooky at night. BEWARE: If you have any problems at all and have to call Vacasa or whoever, there is no cell phone service, and the internet is very very slow DSL, and if the units are full good luck getting a connection. You will be on your own unless you drive north to Waldport to get a cell phone connection. (The locals told me to buy a twenty dollar trac-phone at BiMart next time, because they hit all the towers no matter who the carrier is.)
Cable was a problem until I figured out that of the three controls provided, only two were applicable, and there is no cable guide, and you have to enter each channel number seperately. If the internet works, you might have a chance of downloading a channel guide.
The good: Excellent views and a beautiful nice quiet private beach. Halfway between Yachats and Waldport, and the Sea Lion Caves aren't that far away. The bed was comfy, the kitchen clean and well stocked with everything you need, and there were more than plenty of nice clean soft big fluffy towels in the bathroom.
To be honest, the initial price is enticing, but after all the fees taxes and add-ons, you would be better off just renting a nice hotel room in town.
The view from every unit at the Cape Cod Cottages is spectacular. I stayed in multiple units and can say that the view is phenomenal. The bedroom in unit 7 is a little loud until traffic on the highway dies down and a little bit bright from the light out front. I moved to the comfy couch and slept out there with just the sound of the ocean to put me to sleep:) the location to the beach and the view will keep me coming back to the cape cod cottages. The local contact person-Tommy (?) was super helpful and a delight to work with as well.
We loved the place; the area, the beach access, and the building itself.
Amazing views and comfortable cabin. I feel that we should have been informed when we booked that the fire place was not working.
We are glad to hear this guest enjoyed their stay. This unit is not advertised as have a fireplace as an amenity. We do recommend guests search out homes with amenities that are vital to their comfort during their stay. We are working on getting it up and running for future guests. We hope to host this guest again soon!
The view and proximity to the beach and ocean were unmatched. We were looking forward to just sitting and listening to the waves for a week.
However, there were a few things that made the stay disappointing. The fireplace was “out of order”, the furniture and carpeting were very dated, warn, and/or broken. The entire apartment had an unpleasant odor. We left a candle for the next occupants. We would recommend the Cottages to others with the previous considerations. Hopefully some repair and updates are forthcoming.
Lots of sand on sheets. Evident the sheets had not been changed from previous guests. No linens for pull out couch in living room. The rest of the unit was filthy and outdated. Would not recommend Cape Cod Cottages to anyone! Trying to get refund, but have not heard from management yet.
We are so sorry that the cleanliness was not up to standard before the guest's arrival. We've followed up with our housekeeping team, and they will pay closer attention to these details moving forward.
Private access to beach. Great view from balcony.
Room was great! Gorgeous beach and great accessability!
This humble cottage was beautifully rustic and only steps to the beach. There were a few things broken with it but someone came by within a few hours to take care of any immediate concerns. It was a wonderful place to stay and will definitely come back! Loved our time there.
The view was beautiful. The condo, not so much. The place was not clean, and needs to be updated. The broken hide-a-bed needs to be replaced. Way too much money for a dingy, old, and unclean condo.
With a pet friendly room right on the beach for our dog Marley and a charger for our Chevy Bolt we couldn't ask for more.

It was clean , a good bed . good linen , everything we needed. There was a great view of the ocean . and large beach at easy access. We would stay again
I was extremely disappointed that I paid for what I thought was a hot tub property. Wasn't.
We are sorry to see this guest was disappointed and advise all our guests to carefully read through the provided amenities before booking. Thank you!
The beach, the surf, the scenery---most everything except the house
The unit is small and dated, but cozy and clean. It was the perfect location for a quiet weekend away.
This is a wonderful place to get away to. As soon as we walked in it felt like home. It's small, but was just what we were looking for. The town is nice too. In a 2 block radius we found a used book store, a fabric shop, thrift shops, clothing consignment shops, and a metaphysical supply store. Was fun to see then all!
We would stay here again. :)
Will come again, and again.
Right on the beach, has a garage and private. This is a really nice little place!
Very unhappy, I doubt this review will be published but the owners of the place need to know a good cleaning and check over every unit needs to be done if you take something off the wall replace it switches over the fireplace and unit number seven put a picture there something or o’clock so you could tell what time it is also in order to have a coffee maker and the toaster going at the same time you have to unplug the microwave get an extension put on that outlet .
We have been able to address most of the issues presented in this review. The rest will be brought up to the owner. We appreciate this guest taking the time to share their feedback with us.
qUAINT, NEAT AND CLEAN AND HAS EXCELLENT BEACH ACCESS AND VIEW HAVE STAYED HERE MANY TIMES IN THE PAST AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO.
Perfect location for us close to hiking areas of Cape Perpetua and touristy spots of Newport. We enjoyed the gorgeous views of the beach and easy access. The home was safe and comfortable for our infant and toddler grandbabies as well. We will be back!
I was very pleased with the condition and cleanliness of the home. The appliances were all in tip-top shape as well! Cell service is virtually non-existent at this location (and throughout most of the nearby area as wel), but the wi-fi worked flawlessly. I think I could have spent most of every day lounging on the private deck absorbing the spectacular view!
We were so disappointed. We would not stay here again. Sorry. You should spend some funds to up grade. The view does not make up for the condition of the unit. We left very early in the morning to get out.
We are sorry to see this guest was disappointed as we feel the pictures accurately portray the rental. The owner is working on getting the necessary permits to upgrade the home. Thanks!
The only thing we didn't like was leaving!
This cottage is well organized and has everything you need to enjoy a quiet beach vacation: great location on a nice beach, logs for the fireplace, efficient kitchen, nice deck. There's a friendly grocery store in Waldport to stock up on all your essentials, and plenty of places to go out if you prefer not to cook.
Just stayed here one night on an Oregon coast road trip vacation, but it was our favorite place on the trip. Watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean was beautiful, and enjoyed from the privacy and comfort of our own deck. Cute, homey room with the perfect cottage feel.
Incredible, unforgettable stay in a lovely cottage.
I was looking for a quiet weekend getaway after a weekend in Lincoln City in March was less than relaxing. Cape Cod Cottages were perfect! The view is spectacular! There was very little noise from surrounding guests. The room was very clean. It was comfortable and rustic. The linens still smelled of fabric softener so I knew they'd actually been washed. Beach access is a short easy walk, maybe a little moderate on the way back up as it is uphill. It is close enough to town to browse the shops or pick up groceries. I was very impressed overall and will definitely be making this my go-to reservation when I'm at the beach!!!
We have stayed at Cap Cod Cottages twice now and love it. We are beach lovers and although in the past we have enjoyed the excitement of beaches in Hawaii, Cancun, Cabo, and the Caribbean we have come to appreciate the quiet and laid back beauty that is offered here. If you are looking for night life and culinary delights you will probably be disappointed, but if you want to just relax and enjoy nature this is probably where you need to be!
We enjoy our stay, steps down to the beach, beautiful views from the Picture windows. So much Wildlife, from Rabbit's ,deer to whale watching and seals.
When we come to visit my sister in Waldport again, we will book again at this location.
We came for our honeymoon and everything was perfect! 10 out of 10!
Room is a little dated but clean and everything works. The view is great.
We are family of 5 and had a great stay in this home. Overall it was pretty clean and had all the supplies we needed. Every night we had a fire in the fireplace and watched the waves crash. Very friendly service and close to all the activities in Newport, Waldport, Sea Lion caves,etc.
You couldn't ask to be closer to the beach unless you were sleeping on the sand. The view was fantastic. We stayed for 3 days and nights and I know we will be back!!
We really enjoyed our time here. The location is great. It is above the beach and just a short walk down to the shore. The bed, pillows and linens were very comfortable. Being just off busy 101 the road traffic can be noticeable when trying to fall asleep, but once asleep we were fine. The bathroom is small but very functional and the towels are thick and soft. The living room is roomy and has a pull out couch bed which we didn't need. The kitchen has basic amenities which were great. We saved money by being able to buy some groceries and have a fridge, microwave, stove and coffee maker (which was awful and ended up using another we bought). This is a great location as we went up and down the coast to visit Yachats, Depoe Bay, Newport and other spots. We would come back in the future and recommend this to others.
Our stay was peaceful and relaxing. The cottages are well maintained and clean. A lovely step back in time.
This was our first visit here. It was so lovely and our visit was so nice that we decided to make it a tradition and make this particular place our spot for next year. The only difference is that next year we will rent it for three nights instead of two!
Overall, was well worth our 12 hour drive to get there. The property itself was just big enough and had all the necessities to make the stay comfortable. The view of the beach especially at sunset was unparalleled. Easy access to beach, just s short drive to many hiking trails, places of interest, and great little restaurants. Would definitely highly recommend this home away from home. I am already planning my return trip for next year!
This is a lovely place to experience the old Oregon coast cabin charm. A great place to relax with nothing to do but nothing to do.
Great location and highly recommend if you need a place that accepts pets!
This property is centrally located to the Central Coast. Unlike the northern coast filled with shopping and tourist the central coast is filled with natural areas alive with whales, birds, and great areas for kayaking and hiking. Go north to visit Newport and Yaquina Head and go south to visit the sea lion caves and the Oregon Dunes. Great kayaking on small riviers, inland lakes and bays. Don't miss Cape Perpetua, a gem on the coast.
having no one on property diff. but over all it was good
Over all my friend and I enjoyed our 2 night stay here! The coast views are unbeatable! It is well furnished and cozy with its rustic decor and fireplace (with even 2 presto logs provided-but no matches! ). The bed was very comfortable, as well as the couch.
The place could use some simple updates to make it look fresher, cleaner, and well kept. Revarnish doors, upgrade counters, and shower stall, for example. However, the shower had great pressure and plenty of hot water!
This place is easy to find and has ample parking.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Unit 7 was fine to stay at, it had an amazing view and it was close to both Waldport and Yachats. The decor is very dated and the seating in the living room is mediocre, however the bed was super comfortable so that was nice. It was great being able to have our dog with us and so we would definitely stay here again.
We had the best weather while staying in the cottage. Going down to the beach was the highlight of our stay!
We loved the old cottage and the proximity to the beach. Lovely!
We have stayed in the Waldport area before but this is our first time at Cape Cod Cottages. I would recommend this establishment to anyone who doesn't want to camp at one of the campgrounds. It is right on the beach, beautiful sunsets and we even spotted some whales from our deck. It isn't fancy but clean and very comfortable. Pets are welcome and our dog had a wonderful time on the beach. We will be back.
View was amazing, location was fantastic, but the room with the mold was NOT a healthy issue for me.
We are sorry to see that there was mold in this home and will be sure to get it cleaned out right away so this cottage can be perfectly enjoyable.
Charming, cozy cabin. Dated but clean. Great view and access to beach. Only one usable chair on the deck though as the other was old and busted. No bbq grill. Overall an okay experience.
We apologize that one of the deck chairs was broken and will look into replacing it right away.
My kids wanted to be walking distance from the ocean. This property had the beach in the back yard! Great location. Downside was the fees tripled the price of the rental.
The cabins themselves are rustic and a bit run down (although it appears that they may be doing some updating before the peak season starts) but the view is flat out AMAZING and it is right on the beach with access right from the cottages. The beach was all but empty all weekend, and our dog had an excellent time running the beach. Quiet and relaxing. We will stay here again.
We will try out #11 next time.
Overall, we love the coastal area, and were very pleased by the unit's location overlooking the beach and ocean. We enjoyed the views and moved some furniture for our overnight to take advantage of the picture windows and porch terrace (which we moved back in the morning when cleaning before departure.
This seemed from the website to be one of the nicer units, larger, and better equipped; however, it was disappointing that it was 'run down' and needed some obvious maintenance and upgrade. That would have made the price even more reasonable.
I love Cape Cod Cottages. I stayed with you in May, and returned in June for another trip. The location is fantastic, the beach is beautiful, and I love the vintage cottages. I hope that they will retain their charm with future updating. I'll be back!
Older, but clean and comfortable property. Always appreciate a place that lets me bring my dogs and is clean. Unit feels very private. Great view and beach access. Never was able to pick up wifi. Highway noise bothered me a bit inside the unit, but so did my husband's snoring. Loved sitting on the deck and seeing 5 whales!
I selfishly hate to write this because I always want the Cape Cod Cottages here for myself. The moment we walked through the door of our cottage I could feel myself relax. The old Oregon Coast charm that I remember from my childhood flooded over me. We loved it so much we were able to book two additional days and forgot the rest of a journey up the coast. The crackling fire while looking over the calming Pacific was just what we both needed. No pressure. The best I've felt in years.
Loved your place so much! It was the perfect getaway for me, and my dog. The view is mesmerizing, and the cottage is so cozy! I'll be back for sure!
Thanks for sending us your review! We are so pleased to see that you enjoyed your time at Cape Cod. It has the perfect stretch of beach for walking and letting the dogs run. Plus the Big Stump is a great landmark with a wonderful story behind it. Thanks again for your kind words and we look forward to having you as a guest again!
Great access to the beach, wonderful expansive view, all the amenities you need. Loved the keyless entry. The ability to come and go and be autonomous is priceless.
This was our 1st visit to Waldport and we loved it!!! The cottage was perfect! We especially loved the view from our balcony overlooking the beach & stunning sunset! We will definitely be back!
Thank you for sharing your review with us. We are so pleased to hear that your first visit to Waldport was such a success and this cottage was a perfect fit. The views and surroundings are simply gorgeous! We look forward to seeing you at the Cape Cod Cottages again!
I really wanted to give you all negative comments just so no one else finds out about this little gem, but I wont do that lol. Loved the location as well as the room. Great prices too. We will for sure be back.
Thank you for this great review! We have a lot of regulars that visit us every year for the past 15 years. Hopefully you will become one of them.
Right off hwy 101, easy to find the cottage, great living size for 2 or 4 people. Beautiful view from the deck, beach access was easy to find and go to. Quite and pleasant. Not far to go out and explore to other beach spots or to the stores if your trying to grab some groceries. I'd come back with a heartbeat if I had to stay in waldport again.
I was very happy with the cottage, location and access to the beach. Will definitely stay there again.
This was our second visit to the Cape Cod Cottages. The first was years ago and the beautiful rustic cabins, spectacular ocean views, comfortable furnishings (yes, even the beds were great for a nine day stay), excellent on-site service, fully equipped kitchens and real fireplaces were as good as we remembered. The new flat-screen t.v.'s and wide satellite channel selection was a pleasant surprise, allowing us to watch the baseball playoffs without going out to the local pub. Waldport itself had everything we needed from a great grocery store (with good prices!) to many fun shops, restaurants and local events. It had easy proximity to dozens of beautiful coastal spots from Newport to Yahats. It has been purchased by new owners since we last visited but the only glitch was having to go outside and stand in front of the office to receive our wifi. I'm sure we'll manage at least one more visit at some time in the future. FWIW, cottage #7 was killer perfect for us, although we enjoyed our previous unit as well.
I stayed in unit 7 at Cape Cod (a 1 bedroom with a sofa bed). It is an older property that has generally been well-cared for. The view of the ocean is great and access to the beach is easy. It had everything I needed: a kitchen (with plates and utensils), a tv with dvd player, and a quiet and uninterrupted view of the ocean. And this is a pet-friendly property. I will stay here again.
