Waters Edge 6005 4th Street, Cape Meares, OR 97141

Vacation homes don't get more "waterfront" than this two-bedroom beauty sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean and Cape Meares Lake, with gorgeous views from every single window!

Enjoy watching the sun sink over the ocean from your front deck, or stroll across the quiet dead-end street to the sandy beach. Step out your back door in the morning, and take in the sunrise over the lake; or grab a kayak from the garage and head down to the water for some kayaking.

In addition to its amazing location, this special house is ready and waiting for a fun-filled vacation, with unique amenities to help you make the most of your time of the coast. The great room on the lower level is the perfect spot to spread out with your whole family and unwind after a long day on the beach. Light a fire in the Pellet-stove and settle into the sectional sofa for a movie night on the 60" flat-screen TV, which comes equipped with cable and a DVD player.

There's also an iPod dock, so you can enjoy your favorite playlist as you prepare meals in the open kitchen that overlooks the living area. In addition to all the usual suspects like refrigerator, oven/stove, and dishwasher, the newly remodeled kitchen offers an ice cream maker for homemade treats. In the summertime, there's also a gas grill for barbecues, and a dining table surrounded by windows for your private waterfront dining at every meal!

The lower level also has a master suite downstairs, with a queen bed, and easy access to the bathroom which includes a luxurious cedar sauna. Nothing beats relaxing in a hot sauna after a chilly winter stroll along the shore!

Upstairs, the second bedroom has its own queen bed and a twin-sized daybed. A large lofted bonus room is the perfect spot for younger guests to hang out, with another entertainment center and shelf stocked full of puzzles and games. The bonus room also has three more twin beds, including one which becomes a queen with its pull-out trundle. Altogether, up to nine guests can share the space, with a second full bathroom and washer/dryer to make life easier on larger groups.

This vacation home is wonderful at any time of year. Winter evenings are cozy and warm around the fire, and you'll have a fantastic view of any seasonal storms that may roll in.

Take in the sunrise over the lake from the back deck. Treat yourself to a cocktail on the front porch as the sun sets over the Pacific. In between, take advantage of the home's included kayaks, canoe, and life vests, to truly enjoy every moment of your time on the coast! The lake is stocked with trout, and the perfect place to teach youngsters to fish.

Cape Meares is a small and peaceful town, with an uncrowded beach dotted with driftwood, seashells, agate, tide pools, and long stretches of sand for flying kites and building castles. As you stroll along the shore, you'll understand why its residents adore its moniker of "best kept secret". Charming coastal cafes are just five miles south in Oceanside, with Tillamook's myriad options (and famous Cheese Factory) just seven miles inland. Just beyond town, the scenic Three Capes driving route takes you past historic lighthouses, hidden hiking trails, idyllic coastal dairy farms, and panoramic views.

This one-of-a-kind waterfront house can be the relaxing hideaway you've been craving or the fun-filled vacation home for an active family. The choice is up to you!

*Please note: Unfortunately, the dock will be unusable to guests until further notice.*

    The birders in our group had a ball on the back porch, looking at birds (and a raccoon), and continued from the dining area when it rained. 19 species in 2 days. The beach was great too. We even saw a long ride by a surfer.
    This is not a 5 star place, if that's what you want. But it's a really nice location, it's well equipped,, and it's a good value based on comparisons with other places up and down the coast. We'll come again.

    This vacation home is in a great location and provides a wonderful Oregon coastal experience. There are many things to do and all kinds of wildlife to see. We saw elk, salamanders, an eagle, all kinds of birds, sea anemone, crabs and found many sand dollars. My entire family enjoyed the kayaks and canoe. We were in them multiple times each day. We walked the wide, expansive beach and climbed the rocks toward the south to discover tide pools. The layout of the home is very nice. The small beach community lends itself to relaxation. Our biggest problem with this home was the poor overall maintenance. I had read about some problems in previous reviews hoping that things had been corrected. Unfortunately, this was not the case. We found many issues throughout our stay and they all were because of poor maintenance of the home. The carpet was stained, the closets were stuffed with "stuff", some things did not work, the canoe seats were broken, and the range did not work well. We worked through all of this and readjusted, but all of these and more point back to poor overall maintenance. I would recommend this property because of its location and the Coastal experience, but be prepared for a more "worn" home than what you might expect.

    My husband & I needed to get away for the weekend to unwind & relax from work. We booked this place on short notice and we were pleasantly surprised with the amazing views the house offered. Located in a quiet area, surrounded by the lake & ocean. We even got to see a bald eagle hunting for dinner in the lake.
    The home was comfortable and well furnished. While it was just the 2 of us, I could see how the home would be comfortable for a large family or groups of couples.
    The sauna was a nice treat and we appreciated the detailed instructions. Only downside: Couldn't seem to locate the espresso machine as advertised in the description, but we were satisfied with just a drip coffee maker.

    Just let the guests know to turn the heat off you have to turn the thermostat down past off or it will still blowout hot air. We loved having a lake on one side and the ocean on the other, so cool! Oh and we had a hard time finding the switch for the garage disposal, so a note on the wall telling where it is would be helpful to otherS.

    What an ideal place to stay with the family!! The ocean on one side & the lake on the other... The house itself is better than the pictures! Very clean & cozy & spacious!! They had kytes, & kayaks & a BBQ! & decks on BOTH sides overlooking the waters. WE LOVED IT! So peaceful, & to hear the ocean as we slept was soothing! Make sure to bring a soccer ball, my kids kept going on the sand & playing. The summer would be even better with warmer weather, but rain or shine this house is the ultimate relaxation spot for the whole family! Cyndi In Oregon

    The location is wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed the bird song and view from the porch overlooking the lake (we saw a bald eagle and a great blue heron, among others). We also appreciated having the kayak and canoe, which we used to explore the lake. On our first evening, we walked northward on the beach and saw three elk at the top of the dunes. They were obviously used to seeing people. When we climbed the dunes to see if there were more, we found a herd of 17. It was the highlight of the trip...and quite unexpected.

    A wonderful location for nature lovers, nestled between a lake and the beach. The large back deck overlooks the lake and is a wonderful vantage point for observing numerous waterfowl (many species of ducks, mergansers, grebes, heron), songbirds, even muskrats. A very large and sparsely used beach is literally less than 100 yards away. Decent ocean views from upstairs, and partial views from first floor. Cape Mears has no ammenities and the road to Oceanside/Netarts is currently closed. Tillamook is about 7 miles away so plan accordingly.

    We could decide if we wanted to stay at the beach or a lake, so decided to try this house as it had the best of both worlds. Never heard of Cape Meares so it was the house not the area that attracted us. The views are spectacular. We had fun walking along the beach and canoeing on the lake. The cold weather didn't allow for much else outdoors.
    The house had everything we needed and then some. It felt more like we were staying at a friends house then a vacation rental compared to others we've tried, which were more streamlined with basic necessities and less cluttered. The owners personal belongings that no renter would need are located all throughout the house. However, renters can benefit from the abundance of stuff, including boats, bikes, specialty kitchen appliances, video games, and more. Very kid friendly, so we were able to take advantage of the kid sized bikes, life jackets, kitchenware and even a bathroom stool.
    Cape Meares itself is pretty isolated. On a map it looked much closer to restaurants, etc. However, you must drive all the way around the bay to reach them.
    We would definitely consider staying at the house again if we ever return to the area, but plan to spend the 1st day deep cleaning!

    This home is very nice. It's best quality is that it's on the beach and lake. We enjoyed the tide pools, caves, driftwood and sand dollars on the beach. And we enjoyed the canoe and fishing on the lake. We caught a few trout and saw beavers and their dam on the lake. Oh and also saw bald eagles. It's a little drive into civilization but everything we needed wasn't too far. We frequented the Tillamook Cheese Factory too many times for ice cream! We went crabbing and caught 3 big Dungeness crabs at Jetties Marina and saw gorgeous waterfalls on a drive through the woods. It was a very relaxing vacation that we enjoyed very much!

    This home was wonderful. We had a 1 1/2, 3, and 5 yr old, plus a dog. The kids loved the mermaid themed beds, and enjoyed playing the board games. The older girls loved going on a canoe ride with Daddy on the lake. This home truly had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Towels, linens, heck even a kennel for the dog. The espresso machine was a nice bonus too! And the views are amazing and peaceful!

    This house is in a very quiet town near the end of a street. In October (and I imagine the rest of the year) it was very peaceful. The views are beautiful. From the back deck you can see your own small dock and the birds fishing on the lake. From the north windows you can see the lake and sand dunes and views of the ocean. From the front you look across the sand dunes and driftwood to the ocean. We enjoyed walking the north and south parts of the beach and picking up crab shells with our kids. The house was nice. It was October and cold but the heat works great. The open kitchen/living area allowed me to cook while gazing out the window while my kids played and colored. The couches both upstairs and down were cozy and great for movies watched on the big TVs (they had both children's and adult DVDs and VHS). The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed a quick canoe in the lake. We took day trips to the other Capes - and really loved the Cape Lookout Trailhead - but if you have young kids be prepared to keep them close as the drop offs were close and fell 400 feet to the ocean. There are some restaurants and a Safeway Grocery about 15 minutes away. We didn't have any great meals out but had some wonderful meals at "home". We would highly recommend this home. There is plenty of room with two full living rooms if you decide to come with a larger family or some friends.

    We loved staying at Water's Edge for our running camp. There was plenty of room upstairs and down for conversation, games and movies.... and the location near both the lake and beach was perfect. We will definitely stay there again!!!!

    This house is a wonderful getaway, even in the winter. The views are fantastic on both sides of the house, and we were always grabbing the provided binoculars to check out a beautiful bird out on the lake. The beach is just a quick walk over the rocks, and we didn't see another soul on the sand for our entire stay! Our dog loved playing fetch on the beach and swimming in the lake, and it was an easy trip into Tillamook for groceries. Quiet, peaceful, perfect for a working vacation (the Internet was very fast!). We'll be back!
