The Heron's Nest Vacation Rental 5695 5th St. NW, Cape Meares, OR 97141

This family and pet-friendly Cape Meares vacation rental offers amazing ocean views to enjoy with up to six people and one well-behaved dog (for an additional $10 nightly fee, and a $40 minimum per stay).

Located between Cape Meares Lake and the Pacific Ocean, this beautiful home is nestled in a quiet community close to many natural wonders to stimulate your senses. Just over eight miles east, guests will find services and restaurants in Tillamook - not to mention amazing cheese!

With plenty of windows and an expansive deck to enjoy the fresh sea breeze, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom home is airy and spacious with white walls and black furnishings.

The upstairs living space offers plenty of room to stretch out. Enjoy a movie night on the 32" HDTV with a DVD/VCR player, or a selection of board games and playing cards. This is a great place to unplug and get away from it all, as there is no cable or WiFi. Get warm by the wood stove with a nice book, or chat with your travel mates over a mug of something tasty.

The open kitchen offers ample counter space to spread out and cook to your heart's content. A dishwasher provides easy cleaning. The dining table can seat six or twelve for family gatherings. Eight extra chairs and a fold-out table make it possible to dine out on the deck! Head out to the backyard for a fire in the firepit.

When it's time for bed, a couple may head downstairs to the master suite with a queen bed and access to the backyard. There's an attached full bathroom and laundry room.

Upstairs is a bedroom with a queen bed and a set of twin bunk beds, perfect for a family unit to share, with a second full bathroom attached.

Open up the garage to find a series of beach goodies, including sand pails and a clam gun for the sea, and a canoe for a trip to Cape Meares Lake (transportation of the canoe not provided).

The outdoors are your playground during your stay here. Whether you hike to the Cape Meares Lighthouse, visit the Cape Meares National Wildlife Refuge, or enjoy the beaches at Tillamook Bay or the Pacific Ocean, there's plenty to do outside.

And when your day is done and your pail is full of clams or crabs, come back to the Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental to make your meal and prepare for your next coastal adventure!

    Very nice rental and we love Cape Meares. Was our first time in this particular house but we've been coming to Cape Meares for years. The house is super clean and the kitchen is very well supplied -- the best of all the rentals we've tried. Very comfortable. Our only disappointment was that there was hardly any hot water for showers, even though we turned the hot water heater on at the fuse box the evening we arrived. Not sure if it has to be on for several days in order to heat up a good supply of water. Please consider turning the hot water on well before guests arrive.

    Our family that incudes my husband and me, a teen and 2 preteens stayed here for 2 nights. We were very sattisfied with the location of the house, that is just a short walk away from the beach, as well as the house itself. It was very clean and nicely decorated, the kitchen has all the equipment one can think of and there was plenty of space for all of us. The stove in the living room is for decorative purposes only, but we did not miss it at all since we have been blessed with perfect weather and had a fire on the beach instead. So once we overcame the shock of not having an internet connection ( we somehow missed that in the description) we had a perfect time at the coast and would certainly come again.

    Our stay was excellent! With 3 children we did not run out of things to do! The kids forgot about the internet! I made a successful proposal to my fiance on our stay and we truly enjoyed ourselves. This beach trumps other vacation spots for combing, views, and activities!
    However, be wary of the clams at Roseanna's
    Cafe. It was the only Restaurant we stopped at and it cost me an entire nights rest.

    A clean, modern, comfortable, quiet place to stay, with some beach view from the deck. Easy access to beach, Cape Meares Lake, and Tillamook. Very sketchy cell phone reception - a good reason to practice going without that device on so much. In an emergency you can find a nearby spot with reception.

    We stayed two days at the house on Cape Meares and it was truely a once in a lifetime magical time. I've never experienced anything so beautiful and remote. It was wonderful to be there in a beautiful house with an amazing view, so totally quiet except for the ocean and the birds. So dark at night you can see all the stars. We saw plenty of wildlife as well in the woods and on the beach. So relaxing!

    What a quiet wonderful place to unwind and reconnect from our busy schedules. Warning: minimal cell service, no restaurants, gas stations or convenience stores in the village, only peace and quiet, sea shells, sand dollars, the sound of the surf and of course the constant cool breeze off the ocean. Even found a giant starfish (yes, we threw him back just so you can find him on your trip). The few miles back to Tillamook for groceries changes depending upon the tide, to a view over mud-flats or a wide stretch of water. The house was perfect for the four of us.

    Our family chose this particular home and the Cape Meares area for a certain reason..and we got exactly what we wanted! Completely relaxing, peaceful, enjoyable and the best vacation ever. It was very refreshing to leave the world of technology behind and just soak up the fantastic atmosphere that this home and Cape Meares has to offer...even our "kids" (21, 17 & 14) agreed! On a daily basis we went for walks around the community, spent hours at the beach having adventures and finished it off with nights of movies and popcorn! Some of our favorite moments were the two perfect sunsets that we were able to savor during our 7-day stay and then on the last night we had an incredible bonfire on the beach. Don't miss out on the fort building on the beach or the great wildlife that you see constantly. There was a sweet doe and her fawn that would visit each morning along with some chipmunks. Cape Meares is now our new favorite place to visit. We already are planning to definitely be back next year to stay at this home to enjoy another week of relaxation. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

    Loved the home, very clean and decorated tastefully. One thing I might suggest is having a griddle available for making pancakes on. There was a few chips in ceramic table wear which did not bother me but I was concerned that my group might be held responsible for the damage. I very much appreciated the 2 note books with instructions, recommendations and local information for sightseeing brochures. Very helpful.

    My husband and I went to the coast for our honeymoon and we could not have been happier with our choice to rent a house on the coast! We had a very relaxing couple of days and loved venturing into Tillamook during the day to try different restaurants and do "touristy" things. We especially loved the easy access to the beach and went for a long run along the ocean one of our mornings there. I couldn't imagine a more serene place to rest up after the non-stop action during the days leading up to our wedding. :)

    Some times we just need to slow down to appreciate life. This was one of those times and Heron's Nest was the perfect place for doing so. When we walked in we felt like we were at home. The home was quiet, cozy, had every thing we needed to enjoy out time there. Cape Mears is our kind of place, very laid back. We played games, walked on the beach, caught clams at Netarts bay, and read books. Just what we needed to come back home refreshed.

    This was our first experience with Vacasa rentals and it was a home run!!! The Heron's Nest home was not only impeccably clean, the furnishings were comfortable yet stylish. We loved the games, and how well the house was stocked with just about anything you would want. We DEFINITELY will be staying here again! I highly recommend it. The only con I could say was not having even local channels on the TV and no internet. But then again maybe not having that is what made it a vacation! Thank you so very much for a wonderful weekend!

    The house was wonderful and cozy. You felt right at home and comfortable the minute you walked in the doors. The beds and couches were super comfortable. Lots of snuggly blankets for cool evenings and sleeping with the windows open so you can to hear the ocean. The beach was a short walk and it was so quiet and relaxing. There were 5 of us and we all fit just fine. There was no TV but we were able to rent DVD's at Safeway and RedBox in Tillamook. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of dishes but could of used a larger frying pan and the BBQ was small for trying to BBQ steaks for 6 but we made due. It was a Perfect Vacation. I hope to return in the fall and re-book for next July. Thank you for providing such a wonderful relaxing and cozy home.

    The small town of Cape Meares was a beautiful backdrop for our family vacation on the Oregon Coast. The house was perfect for our small brood (2 small children) and the house had pretty much everything we could have needed or wanted. It's a short walk or bike ride to the beach which was mostly secluded. The option to use the canoe on the nearby lake was also a bonus. The house is very well taken care of and we truly enjoyed our stay.

The short walk to the beach was perfect. We also appreciated the binder full of information about local attractions. We went to the lighthouse, the octopus tree, Brewin' In the Wind, the Tillamook Air Museum, and Munson Creek Falls all based on the recommendations in the book. What a fun time! Thank you!

Lots of room for us (6 adults) to spread out, relax, read, dance, cook (great setup for prepping) and hang out at the fire pit out back gazing at the amazing stars. The beach was an easy stroll a few blocks away to body surf and hike up or down to the light house. Quiet neighborhood that was beckons me to return. A 5 star vacation site!! Kim L.

    We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this beach house, located just a quick walk from the great tide pools and hidden treasures beach of Cape Mears. (Every day the tide brought surprises.) The open floor plan with windows providing expansive view of the ocean worked well for our large group. We prepared meals in the fully and well equipped kitchen and grill on the deck wrapping around the house. In the back yard, protected from the wind, we could enjoy marshmellows roasted in the fire pit. Everything was clean and well cared for. We can't wait to go back!
