Wonderful beach town cottage
This was the perfect stay for our little family. We have stayed in Seaside on all our past trips to the Oregon coast but the cottages at Gearhart Ocean Inn is my new favorite destination. It was a treat to find a cottage with old charm and reasonable updates. My favorite was to find new vinyl windows and updated bathroom fixtures. Lovely touches everywhere you look including the garden with fire pit and plenty of Entertainment to borrow (bikes, chairs, movies, games). The cottages are convenient to the beach and a few restaurants as well.
Beautiful stay, wonderful people
My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in September and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The staff couldn't have been nicer, and went out of their way to explain the free-to-use amenities (bikes, beach chairs, fire pits, restaurants around the property, etc.) The room additionally came with a ton of suggestions and information on what to see and eat in the extended area. High marks all around to the proactive helpfulness of the staff. One thing to note, if arriving late, call ahead as the office is not 24 hours. The room itself was a little duplex with a living room with fireplace (gas heater) and some couches, an efficiency kitchen, and the only bathroom (which was not huge but not tiny either.) The bedroom was upstairs, and the bed was comfy. We were right next to the office and yet had no problem with noise, though town itself, which you are right in the middle of was quite as this was post-Labor Day. What really made the property special, besides the service and friendliness of staff, was the location. Located directly across from a lovely coffee and pastry spot and about 3 blocks from the beach, we could not have felt more relaxed. We grabbed coffee every morning and took long wanders through town and some minor window shopping. If ever back in the area, we will be staying in Gearhart and at the Ocean Inn.
White Beach Cottage by the Sea + Lovely Staff
This is a lovely spot in the tiny town of Gearhart. It's a charming beach cottage, mostly in white with a touch of seashells with historic flare. The staff was super, Cathy and all! The room was very comfortable with a king-size bed. The room had all the right amenities. I would be glad to stay there again and again!
Lovingly Restored Inn
You know you're somewhere different when the parking area is surfaced in gravel. The same attention to detail can be found in each of the charming guest rooms. Our room had a full kitchen with period finishes as well as a bathroom that also retained some of it's period character. The bedroom was accessed via a short flight of stairs. The whole place exudes charm from the 1930's, right down to that gravel parking area! The entire staff is friendly and attentive to detail. The beach bikes and free DVD's are especially nice amenities. Come and enjoy a piece of history on the Oregon Coast.
Feels like a "Tiny House"
If you want to find out what it is like to live in one of those new "Tiny Houses", this might be the place for you! Not recommended for the claustrophobic! We were in unit 9. You walk into a tiny landing that doubles as a living room with a couple of chairs. The focal point is a stove. Then 2 steps out of the landing is a tiny kitchen and on the other side of the landing a tiny shower. Then you climb up a steep staircase to your "loft" that is the tiny bedroom. With 2 people it is very hard to move much less get dressed or undressed and if you need the sink or toilet you have to climb back down the steep stairs to the tiny bath. It was not a place that I could stay, so we checked out early because the cramped style literally made me depressed and I felt like I couldn't breathe. On the other side one must admit that this tiny motel is kept very clean and the owners are trying hard to make the best out of it. But what can one do when the space is so very limited. The other good side of staying here is when I came home to my own house it never looked bigger or better!
