Cove Cottage is perched on a hill overlooking Cove Beach, Oregon. Located between Cannon Beach and Manzanita, the house is surrounded by old growth forests of Oswald West State Park. Parts of the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Sanctuary are visible from the living room. Enjoy the sound of the ocean and watch shooting stars at night in the Marquis 3-person hot tub

Cove Beach is one of the least known beaches on the Northern Oregon Coast. During low tide, a vast sand beach is exposed at Cove Beach. Because most people don't watch the tide tables, it is common to have the entire 2-mile beach to yourself -- a rare treat not only for Oregon, but for most of the world

During high tide, there is not much sand exposed, but you can drive one mile to Arch Cape Beach where there is always sand. Or, within 7 miles you can visit Manzanita Beach (7 miles long), Hug Point Beach, Arcadia Beach or Cannon Beach -- each of which offer miles of scenic sandy beach.

Cove Cottage was recently completely remodeled. The 1500 square foot home features a panoramic ocean view, a large great room, 3 bedrooms, an upstairs/loft with spiral staircase, all new appliances, gorgeous wood floors, and an 1100 square foot deck made from sustainably harvested Red Balau Mahogany.

Built in 1969, this was one of the first houses on Cove Beach, Oregon. The unique gambrel design requires no interior walls or support posts for structural support. The giant connector beams are 24 feet long. The wood floor in the great room is made from reclaimed bleacher boards from an old school gymnasium. The wood is clear, vertical-grained Douglas fir of a quality no longer available and there are no knots in the entire floor.
