This ocean view cottage is just across the lane from a sandy beach and the mighty Pacific. With ocean views from the front and side of this home, couples, families and small groups of 6 or less will love this little beach getaway! The home has a comfortable living and dining area, a nice-sized galley kitchen, a Queen sized bedroom and a 3/4 bath on the first floor, along with a separate laundry and mud room. Upstairs, there is a TV room with a Full size futon, and another bedroom with a Queen bed and a Twin bed. This bright, cheerful cottage is dog friendly, too!
There is a large stone fireplace in the living room to make stormy evenings and cool mornings more cozy and romantic. With free WiFi, satelite TV, and an assortment of games and books, this home offers lots of fun amenities. Meander down to the beach where you will find yourself at the jaws of the Alsea River. Be on the lookout for our resident seals - they often lounge on the sand bank - and watch the fishermen haul in their catch of Dungeness crab.
Sleeps up to 6 - 2+ Bedrooms: 1 Queen bedroom, 1 bedroom with a Queen bed and a Twin bed, a TV room with a Full size futon, 1 Bath
Standard: 2 night minimum; Summer & Holidays: 3-4 night minimum.
Nice little cottage with direct access to the beach. You can't see the ocean but it's just a short walk down a rocky trail to get to the beach sitting on the Alsea bay. Would recommend for a small family getaway.
We had a great time at the Whales Cove. The weather was typical Oregon Coast weather - rainy, windy, drizzly, sunny, sometimes all in the same hour. But it created some nice wave action, great walks on the beach, and some good indoor down time.
The house is small, but it has everything needed in it. Sweet Homes manages the property, and they were attentive to details. The DVD player had the wrong remote, and they fixed the problem so we could watch movies our last night there.
The beach access is right next to the house. It is a draw, and it is not recommended for anyone with mobility issues. There are other beach access points not too far away if the rocks are daunting.
There is a hard bed downstairs, and a soft bed upstairs, so you have choices. The little bed upstairs is not very comfortable; the futon makes for a better bed than the little one in the bedroom.
They have kites, which we used, and dog accessories for your four legged friend. And the washer and dryer are well sized.
Overall, I give the place two thumbs up. It provided a nice place to have some downtime and relax. I highly recommend it.
Quaint Guest Cottage with Beach Access. Rented for my daughter and her family while vacationing on the coast. They loved the quiet, easy access to the ocean, their own space, the fireplace, a full kitchen and the access to laundry. They will return! Meeting with the managers prior to their arrival was helpful and appreciate them accommodating our schedule. We will use the cottage again!
We absolutely loved our long weekend at The Whale's Cove. The cottage is very charming and comfortable. We arrived after dark and were pleased to find the lights on and peaceful music playing when we entered the house - very welcoming. The kitchen is roomy and very well appointed with dishes and utensils. The beds are comfortable and have fluffy comforters. The house is just a few yards away from the path to the beach. There are big windows in the main living area with a view of the ocean. The art in the house is lovely and adds to the overall ambiance. I would like to know who the artist is that painted all the whales, I'd love to be able to purchase a piece. We would definitely stay here again in the winter. I would consider it in warmer months, however, there is no porch or deck or outside seating.
Clean cute cottage. We enjoyed our thanks giving and the firewood provided. Nice beach right at the mouth of the Alsea river.
This is a cozy house one row back from the beach with access down to the water right across the street. It reminded me of the places we stayed when I was a kid. Not super fancy, but all the necessities with one exception that didn't bother me, but might be important to others. It didn't have a dishwasher. It does have wi-fi and some sort of gaming system upstairs which wasn't important to me, but might be if you have kids.
The cottage was nicely appointed and fit our family of three perfectly! Just a short walk from the beach. A quiet relaxing getaway with all the amenities of home. We loved the games collection!!!
Very cozy and enjoyable. Short walk to the beach. The fireplace is spectacular so bring your firewood. A comfortable king sized bed has been added upstairs so that was a nice surprise.
