Cozy cabin for our family
We loved this place! Spacious for the 4 of us, the fireplace, the view, the deck, THE VIEW! Great beach for walking, nice location for exploring to the north and south on day trips. Perfect kitchen and dining area for eating in too! The place was very clean, good hot shower and comfortable bed. We would definitely come here again!
We've stayed at this cottage two years in a row and have loved both of our winter visits. Clean and comfortable, updated, and an amazing view -- what's not to love? Only thing is there could more hooks for hanging pj's, coats, toiletry bags. There are just a few pegs in a closet under the stairs and not even a bar to hang clothes. Otherwise this would be a 5+ star review!!
Joan, thank you for the review. We appreciate the suggestions to help us provide a great guest experience. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Thank you!
layout of the place is great; view is superb; access is very easy; unfortunately, walls are quite thin; also, some furniture needs to be repaired
Beachfront view with easy access to the beach.
Very adequate for a couple. Dog friendly. We loved the gas fireplace. Adequately supplied. Host management was very responsive and timely…. Excellent.
Only negative was poor WiFi. We were without internet and TV service for a half day. Also would be nice to have a BBQ.
Thank you for your feedback, Stephen. We will be sure to bring your comments about the wifi to the attention of the local staff and the owner. We appreciate your comments which help us improve for our future guests, and we hope to host you again!
We had a very enjoyable week here!
The view is obviously the seller on this one. The interior is adequately equipped but nothing fancy or new. Exterior landscaping and cleanliness around stair area needs work. Don't come on a trash pick up day--all bins were totally full & very visible. Mattress too soft (for me anyway). All in all a great stay if you want to just take in the view & sound the whole time which is why I came. Nice and private on deck just as the photo shows
Thank you for the review, Janet! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we can host you again!
Location, location, location is the highlight of these cottages. They have been nicely updated since the last time we stayed there three years ago. The kitchen is stocked with everything you would need but the walls are quite thing- we were able to here the couple next door talking in the bedroom and someone running up and down the stairs.
This beautiful home is lovely for you can go to the ocean in just crossing the property and close to many beaches, I love how clean is and happy back there again and again.
Great Location, upgraded older cabin and with some attention to the items we gave feedback on, can be a great beach getaway. Patio and beach access are lovely.
We are so glad you stayed with us, Marvin, and apologize for any disappointing service you received from us. The screen has been redone, and new patio furniture should be in place soon. Thank you!
We loved the cottage, the Ocean is so close and the view & sounds were hypnotizing! It was very clean and lots of space! It was just the two of us and our little doggie. A very large deck! We did not need the upstairs “tv room”. We have booked again for the fall. These are not complaints but suggestions, need hot pads and more dish towels, need ottomans & end tables for the outdoor chairs on the deck, the slider screen door is shot it needs replaced (it won’t slide, besides having duct tape to cover holes in screen), need bigger rug to wipe feet when coming in (when it rains the floor gets wet), We had a very relaxing time!
Hi, Nancy! Thank you choosing to stay with us and provide your review. We have added more dish towels and pot holders, and the sliding door track has been cleaned. We hope to host you again!
The view from this cozy cottage is beautiful, and even on a stormy weekend away, my wife and I enjoyed our brief time on the beach, as well as relaxing with the sound of the waves off the deck. The finishes in the cottage are beautiful. We had a great stay.
This cottage had a great view
This cottage was exceptional- extremely clean and safe. The views are breathtaking and you're mere steps from the sand. Will be back!
Great view, nice gas fireplace, attractive and CLEAN, everything we needed in the kitchen to cook was there except the carafe for the coffee maker. Since we brought our own coffee pot, it wasn't an issue.
David, thank you for staying with us! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The local manager is addressing the coffee pot. We hope to host you again soon!
Everything was wonderful, from easy check in, to very available phone support for questions. The view and ease of getting to the very secluded beach was great. Unit was very comfortable, roomy enough for two adults and two dogs, sufficiently apportioned for needs. Bed was very comfortable. We never used the upstairs room, didn’t need it but didn’t have comfortable seating. A few things we were able to bring since we were driving but others might want more: no salt nor pepper, no dish towels, dish rag nor dish drain even though no dishwasher. We will be back!
Loved the view. The area is very quiet. Not crowded. Beach is fabulous. Apartment was very clean. Very warm and cozy during our winter stay. Really enjoyed the place. Will definitely consider returning.
Two critiques: (1) internet extremely slow. During the evening when everyone is on the Wi-Fi it was impossible to use. It was not a big deal for us, especially since the owner sprang for netflix and hulu (!) but if someone needs to work online while here, this would be very frustrating. (2) Hot shower is impossible. The best you'll get is warm shower. Very disappointing at the end of a cold and rainy day.
Other than those two things, a really great place. We're super happy with the choice we made. Thanks Vacasa!
Cape Cod Cottage unit #3 met of our expectations! Very nice, clean & comfortable with a amazing ocean view. It was hard to leave! Our 14 yr old Beagle was very pleased also. He loved sleeping near the gas fireplace & was so relaxed he slept more than usual.
The home was nice and clean and the setting is absolutely perfect! Just a few steps down to the beach and you can walk for miles. A couple of things that would have been helpful that you may want to bring: salt & pepper, kleenex, extra linens & a fly swatter (Screen door totally torn and really serves no purpose). All in all we really enjoyed our stay!
The view was beautiful. We found the bed comfortable and the kitchen update was well done.
We truly loved this place. The only things missing were actual bedding for the hide a bed, no blanket available. It was also a little inconvenient to have any closet to hang things on the second floor when we had no reason to really go up there.
I was a little worried about the cottage based on some posts that we saw but the cottage was prefect and very clean & updated with a lot of personal touches. We felt right at home and the views from the patio were amazing. Also having that extra upstairs space with our teenage son was great. It was hard to leave after a week.
Beautiful cottage beautiful area beautiful update!!! Highly recommend! ! Was missing some minor amentities like salt, pepper shakers. I generally travel with some of these items but did not pack this time. Best place ever! Bed was so very comfortable!! Would love to find out what it is!
Super clean, was upset when we got there that the beds were missing upstairs. I reached out and haven't heard from anyone regarding that issue. Now in the pictures it shows 2 chairs. But overall amazing vacation and would stay at this place again!! Just need to make sure we get additional beds ;).
It was nice to just walk right down to the beach. Watching the sunset from the deck
The view was nice, and would have been nicer to turn the couch so it was facing the water. The deck facing the water was roomy.
The only bedroom is downstairs. It faces busy 101, so be prepared for the traffic noise. The mattress was comfy.
The upstairs no longer has any beds, it is a tv room? We did not have a need to use it as there was a tv downstairs. We never needed to turn the tv on as the weather was absolutely gorgeous and found ourselves enjoying Stump Beach! Easy access from unit #3. It is a gravel path, be careful of your step. Stairs to the beach were in good condition.
There is ongoing construction going on, so inquire before you book to see if it is the next door unit.
Our unit did not have any window coverings facing the next unit which was being remodeled. Noise was minimal as the gutting was done and they were installing windows and installing the new deck.The workers were pretty quiet, however, there was "no privacy" as you could see them, and I have a couple of pics of them glancing into our unit. Bring your robe :)
All in all, it wasn't a bad unit. Loved the view, we paid $45 a night, so realistically it was an ok value.
Thank you for staying with us, Elizabeth Joy! We have removed the old photos of the bed and apologize for the confusion they caused. Window coverings have been added for guest privacy. We hope to see you again!
We had a wonderful time at this cottage. It's newly remodeled and tastefully decorated. It was also very clean and in a great location. Just steps away from the beach. Only complaint was the internet crashed the second night we were there, right in the middle of a movie and didn't come back until the following day. Other than that, we highly recommend.
Awesome place great view and very quiet place . Felt like a home away from home !!!
This place was obviously a 1950s motel but it has been converted to vacation rentals. And because it was designed in the old motor court days, the layout allows more privacy than newer places. Unit 3 where we stayed shares only one wall with an adjacent unit (unfortunately it is the bathroom wall, which made for overhearing some interesting discussions next door...) and was really very quiet and private. Kitchen is well-equipped. There is a great deck off the living room that provides a wonderful view of the ocean, which is only a short walk away as well. Electric fireplace added great ambiance. But we thought the couch should be placed so you can sit and view the ocean instead of the fireplace. Stairs are a little narrow to the bedroom upstairs, but I guess people were smaller in the 50s. We did discover that the Flounder Inn is the only public drinking establishment in Waldport, but Yachats is only 15 miles south so there are other options a short drive away. We really enjoyed our stay and will book again.
We loved the cape cod cottages. Very clean and great views/access to the beach. Only complaint would be that it could use some shades on the north side of the house for privacy and couldn’t get the fire place to work. Otherwise amazing, would stay again!
We are so happy that you enjoyed the stay! Thank you for your feedback oh the shade on the north side of the home. We are passing this along to our local staff. We hope to host you again soon!
We loved this place!! I travelled here with my three boys ages 10-15 and they had a blast!! The beds upstairs was amazing. Lots of space. It was all remodelled so a nice surprise! The walk to the beach was so close I could see them playing from the patio. Everything you could imagine in the kitchen too!! Only thing lacking was towels. (There were two bath towels for all four of us for 6 nights!) Although I brought beach towels they were far too sandy for bathing. Otherwise. Great location 110%!!
Wonderful view short walk to the beach pet friendly and a staff friendly and eager to assist you to sum up the stay it was great to have stayed there
Sweetly updated 60’s cottage with great deck looking straight at the pacific ocean. Simple, clean and cozy.
This unit was totally gutted and re-done just weeks before we got there. REALLY nice! All new furniture, kitchen, fixtures, deck, everything. Still a few bugs - the stove hood was installed but not wired up yet, needs more hooks for wet towels in the bathroom, and gutters over the doors. The only real problem was that the only bathroom must be entered through the (awesome) master bedroom. For a couple with kids, no problem, but we were two couples, so... a little awkward! Understood why they put it there, since the mate to it was just the other side of the wall. But this should be mentioned in the description. Otherwise, could be a bit embarrassing unless you are VERY good friends. Overall, they have done a REALLY nice job! Huge new TVs that are top-of-the-line, gas fireplace with fancy remote, very comfy furniture.
Nothing beats the location of Cape Cod Cottages, right on Big Stump Beach. The cabins retain their simplicity, but the new kitchen is much better stocked.
We really enjoyed our stay and will come back again. Very nice on the beach location and playing with and swimming with the seals was nothing short of awesome!!!!!
This place is not like the photos. There is no area rug, the sofa and chairs are all different and very uncomfortable. There is a huge refrigerator on front of the kitchen window and the table doesn't fit there, so you have to put it in the living area. The floors were dirty, there were no blankets on the beds upstairs and no extra bedding anywhere. The gas fireplace is so loud and noisy that you can't use it very long. The kitchen faucet sprays water everywhere. The place needs allot of attention.
Hi Barbara - we are so sorry that your stay did not live up to your expectations. The owner has since completely updated the home and replaced all the furniture.
Beautiful view and private deck.
But no comfortable furniture for sitting around inside
This was a nice addition to our family trip. Parking can get a little crowded, but room for extra parking is available. Nice to walk right down onto the beach with only a little public access making it good for kids or dogs to run. You notice a little noice from 101 but tolerable.
Great view of the ocean...that was the only good thing about my stay. Place was so dirty, broken furniture, and the couch was not the same as the one pictured online. Extremely disappointed in the cleanliness of the property. No screens on any windows so bugs came in. Furniture and decor was old, outdated, and dirty. Not happy at all with this rental...will never return. 0 stars if I could.
We understand our guest's frustrations and are sorry to see they would not return. The owner has since completedly gutted and remodeled this unit. All the walls, floors and furniture, as well as the entire kitchen has been updated. Thank you!
We loved the view, the access to the beach, the convenience to beaches both north and south, the size and the rusticness. The beds were comfortable and the shower great. Employees we talked to were friendly and helpful. The three stars are because it sleeps 6 but only has sitting space for 3-4, the furniture is extremely uncomfortable, the sink slow even though a previous review mentioned this already, and there are no screens on the slider or windows so if you open them, anything or any one, we had a toddler, can go in and out. Overall we enjoyed our stay, my husband said we might return, but it really needs some updating/attention. It could easily be a 5 star place.
Hi Cindra, thank you for your review! The owner has taken your review to heart and the whole unit has been completed updated and remodeled. We hope you can come back and check it out!
Great place to stay with kids and pets.
The view was great but the furniture was so worn that you couldn't sit in the chairs to enjoy it. Trash in the bushes
Thank you for your feedback, Robert! The owner has completed gutted and remodeled this unit and all furniture has been replaced!
Everything was great except for a couple minor details. Could have been a little cleaner. We had a little trouble with the kitchen sink, and was reported.
You can see the beach and water from the living room and it’s just steps away to an amazing beach. Dogs, kids and parents all loved it!!!
Very clean older unit, well cared for. Nice balcony and quiet beach. Perfect for the California sunsets. Also conveniently located.
These cottages are perfect little rustic vacation homes. We'll be back!
AwAy from the busy tourist traffic. Right on the beach. Peaceful with the beach right there. Full kitchen made it feel like home. Would recommend to everyone. Not high end but cozy and comfortable.
Cottage 3 is warm and charming.(All is needed is a bit more attention to wood walls and rusty heaters and dusty floor rugs)
Thank you for your feedback! The cabin has reently been completed gutted and remodeled- all floors, walls and furniture is brand new now!
We had a great stay. The view was fantastic The condo very well equipped and the beds were not too bad. That’s the positive. It was well worth the money and I’d stay there again.
The negative was the living room furniture the deck furniture was more comfortable and the exterior of the units could use some paint. But you are on the ocean that is to be expected.
We had a great weekend. Everything went very smoothly.
The vintage cottage has one of the best views of the Oregon Coast.
Price was good and the view outstanding
Home was clean and cozy
The unit was very clean and comfortable. The view and the access to the beach is good. This facility has been here for years, they are in the process of updating. My husband and I spent our honeymoon here 62 years ago. Location is between Yachts and Waldport, very convenient. I would stay there again.
While unit 3 is small, there are three queen size beds that are comfortable. The view and the privacy of the balcony is well worth any comfort loss from the small living room. If you are looking for an affordable place to stay with a great view and fantastic quite beach this is the place. We did have a furry friend(skunk) under the house the first two days so we had to enjoy it's fragrance for a bit but it eventually left. Overall as usual a great relaxing couple days at the beach.
We had 4 in our group and stayed in cabin 3. It was comfortable enough for the 4 of us, but I wouldn't recommend and more than that since there wasn't much for comfortable seating. The fireplace worked great, but be sure to bring wood as none is provided. And there were no on site staff to purchase any from. The local grocery store does have wood for purchase. The small deck with chairs were nice to sit in and drink coffee in the morning while watching the ocean. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of dishes, glasses and coffee cups,pots n pans, but if you need a hand mixer you should bring one as there aren't any small appliances other than the coffee maker, toaster, and microwave in the cabin. Bring extra dish soap if staying longer than a couple days, as what's provided is a tiny travel size like dish soap. The heat worked great, in fact we got too hot. The shower was awesome, excellent water pressure. The cabin is perfect if you're not looking for anything too fancy. It's pretty basic, but comfortable. A great place to relax in after a fun day on the beach. We would definitely come back again.
I stayed here growing up 30 years ago, and what a treat to bring my own children. Love The Big Stump!!!
This place was perfect. It's not fancy but I wasn't expecting that at the price. It was clean, had comfortable beds, a nice balcony and best of all a short walk down some steps to the beach!
The location of this property is great, right on the beach. However, the property is very run down and they have posted OLD pictures that are falsely advertising what seating you get and what the cottage will look like.
Simple little cabin, funky but clean and tidy, with a Perfect View of the beach. We spent most of our time on the deck in the afternoon sun, watching the surf. It's right on 101, so be prepared for some traffic noise from the east side, but the ocean mostly drowns that out. Place could use some updates but it was clean and convenient and just fine for us.
Unbeatable view and access to the sparsely populated beach. Cottage #3 is quite private and you cannot ask for a better view. Awesome. Having a 3 hour fire log supplied inside was very pleasant and easy. The facility is not glamorous, in fact it needs some repair, but everything you need is there and you are on the beach! Wonderful experience for our family and dog. With only one bathroom and the limited space, I would recommend a 4 person maximum occupancy.
The beach is wonderful and is only a few steps from the cottage! Highway 101 is noisy and very close. The cottage needs more comfortable seating for more people. The beds were comfortable and the shower had great water pressure. It definitely could use some updating but it worked as a home base.
They offer early check-in and late check out, i would suggest to use that, its great. there is a fully equipped kitchen to help cook and a grocery store nearby. We also had a bonfire and played games around that in the evening.
This cottage was great - easy beach access and a great view. Private and clean. The kitchen was very well appointed with new appliances and nice dinnerware and cookware. Will be booking again. Not much to look at from the outside but nice inside.
A friend and I went with her two dogs. It was quaint with all the amenities, and the staff was great and welcoming.
The kitchenette was great, and a huge factor for us in picking accommodations. The view can't be beat. Was a very comfortable place. We will stay here again.
Nice quaint little cottage with an awesome view....
Quaint, lovely, a view like no other!
Wonderful view of the ocean !!
Amazing view kinda a tuff walk up to the house from the beach. And the bushes but the benches need to be cut so u can see the ocean better over all a great place. I will be back.
We had a wonderful time. The view was outstanding! Great location right on the beach. Close to both Yachats and Newport. House was older but still clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay here again!
We loved staying here. The furnishings were comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with all the basic cooking tools. The view definitely makes it, and when throw in the real wood-burning fireplace, we had the perfect place to relax and enjoy the coast.
This was my families first visit to the beautiful Oregon coast! We loved our stay at the Cape Cod Cottages unit #3 and would definitely stay there again in the future. The beach was right out the back and so easy to get to. Loved hearing and seeing the ocean. Nice beach for the kids to play on and go exploring.
Good location. Beds very comfortable. Kitchen tight but adequate. Fun place to be with family?
This is an okay property, the location is great in that it is right on the beach and you have it mostly to yourself. Keep in mind most businesses close by 8pm and there isn't much to do in Waldport itself, you have to drive to the surrounding areas for food/entertainment.
Oceanfront is close by and the view is spectacular, especially in the evening.
Great location by many surrounding beaches to explore, wonderful view of the ocean. Comfy cottage feel, could use a little sprucing up to make it that much better.
The rooms are a little old but are comfortable. The deck’s over looking the Beach and ocean are nice.The Beach access is Great and its nice to have a Beach with very little people to deal with.
This was a last minute booking. We enjoy staying in beach rentals frequently, and I was honestly hesitant to book this one since it was so much older and smaller than we generally go with. The photos do not do this property justice! The views were spectacular, the beds upstairs and the pillows were extremely comfortable, and we were so much closer to the beach than we thought. Literally steps away. All the kitchen appliances worked well, and the bathroom was immaculately clean. We loved the water pressure of the shower! This place offered a lot more than expected. We loved collecting drift wood and building a fire at night...I can't say enough about our experience. This place is a hidden gem! We will definitely be back.
Our stay was wonderful with the perfect location.
Wonderful view and easy beach access, after a short path there's one staircase maybe 8- 10 steps then on the beach. Units are separated by garage area so no sounds from adjoining unit. Bathroom small but adequate, shower head nice with good flow and plenty of hot water. This is an older unit, not luxery but clean. We found it comfortable. It could use an extra seat in living area, seating for 3 only. We had our own camp chairs for deck, I would suggest this.
We love Cape Cod Cottages, simple as that. My parents honeymooned there in the mid 1940's. Big Stump was actually BIG back then! I appreciate that the cottages remain as they were in my childhood and that we now have a third generation that has fallen in love with the place.
Bathroom is very small and uncomfortable to use
great beach. Expensive for what u get. Comfy beds but outdated cottage. Quiet. I will probably stay again. We did have a great time.
This is one of 10? cabins in a park-like setting, oceanfront, with a great beach out front. The beach has a very shallow slope, with lots of puddles left behind at low time - perfect for our children to explore and play in. We had a great time, and we'll be back.
I booked this cottage at the last minute and was happy to find it. The beach here is gorgeous. We spent very little time at the cottage. The beds were fine, no mold/mildew smell. It does need updating badly - even the wall heaters were rusty.
We had a great time in Cape Cod Cottage #3 overnight and would definitely plan on staying here again - especially if the new hot tubs that were sitting on the property get installed in the cabins! The location is very convenient just south of Waldport. The place is nothing fancy, but cute, clean and an honest representation of the space in the pictures.
I stayed here with my husband and 3 girls and it fit us just fine. We don't require anything fancy just a kitchen, bathroom and place to sleep and this place was just that. Short walk to beach and between about 20 state parks. Nearest walmart is a 30 min drive so plan for that when arriving. We had zero cell phone reception at this location but rarely had it along the coast.
We expected it to be a bit run down after reading some of he reviews. We were okay with that. The price was fair and it was clean. Turned out to be a great solution to trying to find a place with two dogs!
The fireplace is "open" when in the forward position. And thank you to who ever left the logs there, was nice to have that in the evening. Could see that there is a lot of remodeling happening on, have a feeling it will soon be reflecting that in costs. So feeling very lucky to be able to experience and share in my memory's file, my weekend there.
I really liked this cozy space and the view was amazing..having a private beach was great..my only complaint is that the check in is pretty late so you really get such a short time there
We very much enjoyed our stay in cabin #3. Cottage was just as advertised.
The unit is basically what you see in the pictures and descriptions.
PROS: Amazing beach frontage & view, cozy interior, good beds, good tv & Wi-Fi, awesome water pressure for showers, great fireplace. :-)
CONS: It's super outdated. Everything inside (except the beds) feels really old and worn out....which makes it feel gross inside. ALL the furniture in the family room is super uncomfortable. No dishwasher & very few dishes if you have 6 people.
This was a great relaxing place to stay. The cottages are older but in a great location. It's nice that the balconies are not attached so you really have great privacy sitting in the deck watching the excellent ocean view. The beach was prefect. Very quite. If you aren't to worried about a fancy home and want a great ocean experience this is the place.
