3 Cute Cottages to Rent in Oregon

large(1)

When I was searching for cottages to stay at during our Oregon honeymoon, I discovered so many cool places. (Looking at Airbnb is seriously addictive!) We ended up booking a cottage in Yachats–a small town on the coast 3 hours south of Portland where we’re getting married (this Saturday!)–a couple Yurts in Nehalem Bay and Cape Lookout State Parks, and a Japanese Forest House on an organic farm near Manzanita. I’m excited to share pictures and thoughts on these places after we get back!

As for these three cottages, all of them were contenders at the top of my bookmarked list. I would love to stay at them at some point in the future. Maybe they will inspire a little Oregon trip for you too…

The top image is the OceanView Retreat Nestled in Forest in Yachats. The owners named the cottage Sans Souci, which is French for ‘without worry or trouble.’ Sounds good to me!

This is what it looks like on the inside…

I’m imagining stretching out with a book or a big stack of magazines on that lounge chair.

Deck off the bedroom–something about that always feels really luxurious to me.

Outside dinner at the edge of the forest–yes, please.

Also in Yachats, this is the Seaside Cottage Ocean Front Rental

Exterior

I have a soft spot for wood shingle siding–throw in an ocean backdrop, and you’ve got my attention.

Exposed wood beams on the ceiling and a bench seat at the dining table with striped cushions–love.

White panel walls always look so fresh. And it looks like you can see the ocean while lying in bed. I’m seeing breakfast-in-bed potential.

This cottage isn’t as private as some, with neighbours fairly close on either side, but the proximity to the ocean is crazy! Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the waves here would be amazing.

And in Bend, a small city in Central Oregon along the Deschutes River, this Rustic Meets Mid Century Mod Studio is both cute and stylish. It’s called The Arrow House.

Green door, green trees, brick walkway–sold!

The contrast of dark and light in the textiles, and the dark hardwood paired with white walls and ceiling gives the cottage to an unexpected modern feel. I would never guess this is what the inside looks like from viewing that first photo.

They’ve slipped in a little dark wood on the kitchen wall, too, nicely done!

Cold beer, setting sun, a few good stories…that fire pit is calling to me.

Which is your favourite? I’d love to know! I think mine is the Oceanview Retreat–it looks so cozy and tucked away.

Know any special places in the world for accommodation that you recommend? Could be close by, or in Mongolia–if so, please share in the comments! Maybe I’ll feature them in a future post–hmm, that could be a fun new section on the blog…

p.s. Tomorrow I’m going to share a sneak-peak of our marriage ceremony location before we pack up our rental car and get on the road. If you have a chance, be sure to look–we can’t wait to get there and see it ourselves!

  1. all super compelling… I’d agree with you as well from the pictures… though the last one oozes with character, as well… it’s decor and colour scheme definitely leans into a more rugged masculine nature..

  2. Hi Courtney,

    If you are ever looking for a super cute cottage to stay at in Eugene, OR, we just finished an extensive remodel of our Park Avenue Cottage. You might like to share it with your readers.

    Thanks!
