Bears Head - Home & Studio 79058 Cove Beach Rd, Arch Cape, OR 97102

With amazing vistas and a uniquely modern style, this three bedroom oceanfront vacation home makes a wonderful spot for an extended family getaway or large group retreat. There is plenty of room for everyone to gather in the main home's beautiful great room, but the addition of a separate studio provides extra space for guests who prefer a little more privacy.

Tucked in the small town of Arch Cape near Oswald West State Park, the home is a fantastic retreat at any time of year. In warmer months, the wraparound porch and its colorful Adirondack chairs invite you to sit and take in a sunset over the Pacific, or gather around the gas grill for an oceanfront barbecue. In the winter months, a long wall of west-facing windows in the great room allow you to enjoy the panoramic views even when a storm is rolling in.

The great room has warm hardwoods, exposed timber beams, and funky yet luxurious furnishings for an unforgettable retreat! The open kitchen has a curved island with plenty of counter space, making it fun to spread out and try a new recipe or prepare meals for a larger group. Of course, the kitchen is equipped with updated stove, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, mixer, blender, and all the pots and pans, dinnerware, and cooking utensils you might need. Grab a barstool for a quick bite, or settle around the eight-person table for a more leisurely meal.

On chilly evenings, the river rock fireplace provides a wonderfully cozy spot to curl up on the soft leather sofa. Enjoy a quiet evening with a good book and a favorite CD on the Kenwood music center, or settle in for a movie night on the television with DirecTV cable and DVD/VCR.

The main house has two bedrooms, including a romantic master suite with queen bed, private bath, and amazing ocean views. The east bedroom has a full-sized bed and access to the hall bath with a tub/shower combo.

A separate entrance leads to the studio, ideal for a couple or second small family looking for a little extra privacy. The studio has its own living area with comfy seating (including a memory-foam queen futon!) and another cable TV with DVD player. A kitchenette allows you to prepare light meals and morning coffee, and a small two-person table provides a nice spot to eat or work. The studio also has a private queen bedroom and a full-sized bath, as well as its own sliding glass door out to the deck.

Altogether, up to eight guests can comfortably share the main house and the studio. With wireless Internet access and a washer/dryer, the property is perfect for longer stays or working vacations. Beach access is just a block and a half away (those amazing views are courtesy of the home's perch on a bluff above the rocky beach), and the yard even has an outdoor fire bowl for marshmallow roasts under the stars. And as a pet-friendly home, you don't need to leave any of your four-legged friends at home (a nightly $10 fee per pet does apply along with a $40 minimum per stay).

Thanks to its amazing location in quiet Arch Cape, the home is enveloped by Oswald West State Park with its amazing hiking trails, a picturesque surfing mecca at Short Sands Beach, and panoramic views atop Neahkahnie Mountain. Head just seven minutes north to the boutiques and galleries of Cannon Beach, or go in the opposite direction to laid-back Manzanita for a frosty pint at the local pub or to buy groceries at the natural foods store.

Of course, once you settle onto the deck with a glass of wine and begin to take in the views of the Pacific, you may not want to leave your newfound paradise at all!

    Spent the weekend here with the girls and when we walked into the house the first thing we saw was the amazing view. We were lucky enough to stay on one of the most beautiful winter weekends so the sun was shining and we were able to spend lots of time on the deck and enjoying the view from the large dining room table.

    The location of Bear's Head was perfect. It was so nice to be away from the crowds and so close to the beach. The view was spectacular.

    The guest house bed sagged in the middle and the condition of the towels and linens need to be addressed. They are old and look it. The house could definitely have been cleaner.

    It was overall a great vacation.

    While the home is comfortable, this is not the place to stay if you have any hope at all of accomplishing even the most simple remote work task. Internet and cell phone coverage are basically non-existent. The kitchen is well equipped with everything that you may need and more spices than you would ever need. It also should be noted that you cannot access the beach from the yard. And although the home was not clean when we arrived a couple of phone calls resulted in someone coming out the next day to take care of a few of the issues. We have rented private homes often but sadly this was not a pleasing experience in renting a home for our vacation.

    The view is breathtaking. The back porch was very comfortable, we spent a majority of the weekend bundled up on adirondack chairs watching the ocean. The beach is easily accessible a short walk down the road. The kitchen was well stocked and the gas grill was handy for our first night. The only aspect that could use some improving here are the very uncomfortable beds. Both my husband and my mother's boyfriend are quite tall and the small beds with footboards made sleeping nearly impossible. As a group we found the mattresses to all the beds were old and soft. Unfortunately, I love this home but question if we would stay here again as I feel I would need to bring air beds or a camping cot to sleep well enough to enjoy this otherwise relaxing home.

    We spent four nights here with friends (shared main house and studio). It was wonderful to just sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful views. Easy access to gorgeous, unspoiled and barely used beach. Many nice amenities. We would stay here again for sure if the opportunity arises.

    We loved our stay at Bear's Head! The views from the house were simply incredible and the sunny, open layout of the kitchen, dining room and living room meant we could all hang out together and enjoy being by the beach without ever stepping out the door. The surrounding area was quiet and beautiful as well. Perfect house for a winter or summer escape.

    We have done rentals on the Oregon Coast through several different companies and none of them are better than Vacasa. This is our 3 rental with them and they are the best by far.
    This property was great. The view, location and décor were awesome!.

    This was our first visit to the Northern Oregon Coast and our stay at Bear's Head was perfect. We were joined by our grown children and the studio proved to be a valuable asset for our son and daughter-in-law to enjoy some privacy. The Arch Cape/Cannon Beach area includes excellent dining and outdoor activities and we were never at a loss for something new to do. Tillamook is a short 45 mile drive and offers additional activities.Our 12 day stay flew by so quickly, leaving us with nothing but great memories.

    Our group of 6 spent a stormy weekend at Bear's Head and very much enjoyed watching the waves crash onto the shore. We lost power briefly but that only contributed to the excitement of enjoying the first storm of the season. We'd definitely recommend Bear's Head. The house is well-appointed and roomy. While we didn't get to enjoy any sitting time on the deck, it would be great in warmer weather. Proximity to Cannon Beach makes picking up supplies or having lunch or dinner an easy drive!

    Our family met for a 5 day reunion on the Oregon Coast. We stayed at Bear's Head and found the house and studio location perfect for our getaway. The views were awesome, and low tide strolls on the lonely, secluded beach were relaxing. One evening we roasted marshmallows for s'mores on a beach campfire, and another evening we grilled hamburgers on the wrap-around deck, enjoying the sunset. A few glitches such as the stereo being inoperable were minimal inconveniences, as the house and studio had plenty of room to stretch out, the kitchen was well stocked and the beds comfortable. We highly recommend a stay at Bear's Head...RRS

    Great place to stay if you don't want to be right on the beach...has a fabulous view but is up high so beach access is a block or two away. The house and studio were decorated nicely and accommodated our needs perfectly except that the kitchen could use some decent pots/pans/lids!

    I looked forward to this vacation for a long time. When we arrived at the house, I was more than pleased with the comfort, décor, and location. It seemed every detail was thought out. We had everything we needed, and more. We had two young children and an elderly person, and this house was suitable for all. I would like to rent this home again in the future.

    Usually we have had to rent a much larger place to get the variety and privacy we were seeking for our annual Mother's Day retreat. Bear's Hear was big enough for a Mom/Dad and toddler and 2 Mother's in Law to boot. The washer and dryer were convenient so we didn't have to over-pack. The location and an artist/decorator to boot was a surprise that far exceeded our already high expectations!

    This home is creatively decorated and inviting. The wrap around deck is a great way for someone physically challenged to enjoy a short hike at the beach. The view is spectacular and we loved watching the high tide burst onto the rocks below. The beach is for driftwood and rock hounds...and the large yard was ample space for our med sized dog to get out and run on anytime. Not the beach site for 'long walkers', until low tide. But for those looking for ample space and an incredible view of the waves, with easy access and more than acommodating home features....I give it an A.

    The house and yard are fantastic! I wish the beach was better for walking on, but we did plenty of hikes in the area so that hanging out in the house and in the yard became a relaxing and addictive experience. The view is amazing. the area is sooo quiet and relaxing. Perfect get away that I hope to do again.
