This cozy vacation home is just a short drive away from the vibrant beach culture of Manzanita, set back in a wooded residential neighborhood just minutes from Nehalem Bay and the majestic Northern Oregon Coast. Contemporary in style, its spacious open concept interior is perfect for families and groups of up to six guests, and it even welcomes one small dog.
In between bouts of rest and relaxation at home, collect seashells and explore tide pools on Manzanita's beach, which lies two miles west. Head south to kayak, fish, and view wildlife in Nehalem Bay, or hike on seaside trails in Nehalem Bay State Park that give stunning cliffside views of the Pacific Ocean. If it's shopping you're after, check out the gift stores and quaint boutiques in Neahkahnie Beach, which is just over two miles northwest.
Step inside this home to find enchantment in its elements inspired by the natural surroundings, including a moss green motif and a polished natural wood dining table. Throw a few logs in the living area's wood stove and settle in while a cozy fire warms the room. Catch an afternoon nap on the green cloth couch, or spread out even more on the adjacent brown leather sectional couch.
With an abundance of cutout windows, the living area is bathed in plenty of natural light and the forested neighborhood just beyond your doors can easily be seen. From the living area you can access the outdoor deck, where a gas grill awaits a summertime barbecue and a glass-top table provides seating.
Speaking of dining, head back inside to whip up a fresh feast in the full kitchen, which offers modern appliances, ample counters, and varied cookware to assist in your culinary endeavors. Eat together at the nearby six-seat dining table, or take the meal onto the deck.
When it's time to call it a day, head to either of two bedrooms downstairs or the loft bedroom upstairs to get the restful sleep you deserve. Up to six guests will sleep comfortably on queen-size beds in two of the rooms, and there's a cozy futon mattress in the third sleeping space. Kids will certainly enjoy the laid-back sand and palm tree motif in one of the rooms, while the elegant simplicity of the other two bedrooms will appeal to adult tastes.
There's even a wall-mounted, DVD-equipped flatscreen TV in one of the rooms, perfect for winding down the day with an evening movie. Two full bathrooms, one on each level, means nobody has to wait too long for a shower. Other amenities include WiFi and a washer/dryer, and this home welcomes one dog weighing up to 35 pounds, though please note there is a nightly pet fee.
Many fun day trips are possible from this home's great location. Sip acclaimed local wine at the Nehalem Bay Winery, or spend a day crabbing in Nehalem River. You could also take a horse ride along the beach, or hike up to the top of Neahkahnie Mountain and take in the dazzling panoramic views from 1,600 feet above town.
