Recent Cape Meares vacation rental reviews

This is one of my all-time favorite homes to stay in Cape Meares. It's so comfortable and super bright and clean with many wonderful spaces to enjoy indoor activities as well as just a short walk to the fantastic Cape Meares beach to catch the amazing sunsets. There are three levels; the garden level has a fantastic, huge space for group activities, games, and gatherings. There is a very, nice large bathroom and huge shower on the garden level and an open kitchen area with a refrigerator. The second level has 3 beautiful bedrooms with very cozy and gorgeous beds with fabulous bedding; I slept so warm and cozy! The top floor has a large, open kitchen, dining area, and large living room with comfy couches to enjoy the fantastic view of the ocean, beach, and the yard, where you can enjoy visits from elk, deer, and bunnies. I fully enjoyed my stay at the Grand Vista Retreat Cape Meares and can’t wait to go back again.

My wife and I have stayed at various houses at Cape Meares over the years, but this one is our new favorite. Cozy, but not cramped, easy walk to ocean access, and until recently, on the corner of Cape Meares only stop sign. The sheltered hot tub is lovely when it rains.

Very quiet and peaceful. Epic sunsets

Things to do in Cape Meares

Without a doubt, the number one attraction near town is the Cape Meares State Scenic Viewpoint. The small but impressive park is home to both the shortest lighthouse and the largest Sitka Spruce in Oregon, as well as some of the Coast's best views over the crashing Pacific Ocean. The viewpoints in the park are known as a prime whale-watching spot during migration season, and a favorite nesting grounds for seabirds, including the common murre, bald eagle, and peregrine falcon.

On clear days, visitors might catch a glimpse of the tufted puffins and Steller sea lions who enjoy protected breeding grounds at the Three Arch Rocks Natural Wildlife Refuge to the southwest of Cape Meares. Many vacationers along the Oregon Coast pass through Cape Meares as they journey along the Three Capes Scenic Route, a 40-mile loop drive that meanders along the shoreline from Pacific City to Tillamook. Even on rainy days, when you might be tempted to hunker down in your cozy Cape Meares beach cottage, the well-marked path at Three Capes is worth an afternoon's exploration, showing off some of Oregon's most panoramic viewpoints in state parks at Cape Lookout and Cape Kiwanda.

Along the sandy beach of Cape Meares and in the surrounding parks, visitors can enjoy some of the best hiking, kayaking, kite-flying, crabbing, fishing, and birdwatching in the state. While Cape Meares itself is very quiet, the community is only five minutes from Oceanside, with fresh seafood and homemade desserts at Roseanna's Cafe or Brewin' in the Wind.

Day trips from Cape Meares

Within twenty minutes, Tillamook offers all the dining and shopping options of a larger town, plus the ultimate rainy-day activity: touring and tasting at the Tillamook Cheese Factory.
