Awesome, fully remodeled cottage in between Seaside and Astoria. Our adorable home is walking distance to the beach and we pride ourselves in offering a fabulous experience for guests. We lovingly remodeled a 1930 cottage into a great retreat.
We bought the Norway Cottage in 2010 after falling in love with the location. We are native Oregonians and have a special place in our heart for the Oregon Coast. In addition, we raised 5 children so understand what kids (and parents) need when on vacation! :-) This is a unique, small little neighborhood and we've remodeled the cottage to be a special, cozy place for couples or families. We are located just a 5-7 minute walk directly down the street to the beach. If you'd rather drive, you can drive right onto the beach from our road--making a long day at the beach with all your gear very convenient. If you'd rather play at the playground across the street or play in the lake, we're only about 200 yards away from both. The home has two bedrooms with very comfy beds for 6. In addition, we have lots of extras; Nice, newer furnishings, great decor, ping pong table, clam guns, gas BBQ and outdoor fireplace, bikes, lots of sand toys, games, game system and TVs with DVD players in 3 rooms. Our kitchen is very well equipped and even though the space is relatively small, it's open and laid out well. The gas fireplace is super cozy for those chilly Oregon seasons. We have a 50' parking area so that you can bring your boat if fishing is what you've come to the coast for. We've rented this home for 5 years through the "other" main site and have other very successful rentals in Oregon. People are not disappointed as we do our very best to make your stay enjoyable, hassle free and offer a lot of extra details. We even have a hot water hose for you to clean your feet outside. Although we are new to this site, we've been running a very successful rental with this home with almost all 5 star reviews over the last 4 years. We also have rentals in Crescent Oregon, as well as Oakridge Oregon. We are in the process of remodeling another home just down the street and expect to have it ready for rentals by June 1, 2017. Check out our other rentals as well!
We provide access instructions about one week prior to your arrival. We will send you an email with directions, access instructions, house rules, as well as tips for a great trip to our area.
We reply quickly via email or text. In an urgent situation, we can also be reached by cell phone.
We are a legal rental within Clatsop County and we pay the 10% transient tax required by the county as well as the state transient tax. We have built that into the cost of the nightly rentals. In addition, we have our house professionally cleaned every time someone departs. That cost is in addition to the nightly fee. We are not the cheapest rental out there, but we are one of the nicest small homes available. Almost every guest feels the cost is well worth it!
We are a pet free, no smoking home. Please treat our house as if you spent a year of weekends, and tens of thousands of dollars remodeling it as we did. We did all the work ourselves, we work regular full time, corporate jobs and do this as a "hobby". (Crazy, right!?) We have tried very hard to provide a lovely home to share and hope you respect it as if it was your "baby". Due to the white furniture and some guests allergy concerns we do not allow pets. We will provide a short list of expectations for check-out, to help our professional housekeeper clean the house quickly.
My husband and I are both Oregonians and love the outdoors. We fell in love with all the awesome things to do around Oregon. (Hiking, biking, boating, white-water rafting, skiing, snowmobiling, fishing, clamming, and visiting the local English Pub! :-) We have 5 children ages 19-25 and know what it's like going on vacation with kids, so all of our homes have kid rooms and activities that make both kids and parents happy. We have 3 vacation homes around Oregon so that we can escape our corporate jobs and enjoy our beautiful state to the fullest. We strive to create an "above and beyond" experience for our guests--adding many additional amenities that will make your stay comfortable, easy and stress free.
Our goal in sharing our cute and comfortable homes is to expose more people to the beauty around Oregon. We strive to provide a well-priced, comfortable place to relax at while you enjoy the awesome outdoor activities in the area.
