Privacy and Cape Cod charm define Shutterbug Cottage, located in peaceful Arch Cape overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Situated just west of Highway 101, the cottage is minutes from Cannon Beach and Manzanita, and only one block from the beach. Offered by Starfish Vacation Rentals, it includes fun amenities for all ages, making it an ideal getaway for families and small groups. 3-Night Minimum.
The cottage has a cozy beach house feel, but it comfortably sleeps eight to ten guests. Its three bedrooms downstairs and large bedroom upstairs meet nearly every sleeping arrangement you need. Adults usually take their pick between the king-sized bed in the master bedroom at one end of the house and the queen-sized bed in the room at the opposite end. Most kids choose to sleep in the big bedroom upstairs, which has three twin beds, one double bed, and a futon. For the littlest pirate or princess, there's a downstairs bedroom with a twin bed and all manner of games, books, and toys for younger kids. Two bathrooms downstairs (one with a shower and one with a shower and tub) and a washer/dryer make cleanliness easy, even at the beach.
The spacious kitchen with its ocean view makes meal preparation a pleasure. The wraparound deck along the west and south sides of the house takes you to a side yard where you can grill dinner on the gas BBQ or just enjoy watching the kids play. There's plenty to do indoors as well. The cottage has an upstairs great room with a satellite-equipped TV, an original record player with tons of classic vinyl records, and a kid's play area with toys, games, and puzzles for all ages. The living room downstairs—with its wood-burning fireplace and comfortable, overstuffed seating for everyone—provides another natural gathering spot.
From the cute décor to the clean, uncluttered feel throughout the house, Shutterbug Cottage reflects the unique appeal of Arch Cape. The beach here is lovely and never crowded, unless you count the wildlife! Guests have seen puffins, sea lions, seals, starfish, sand dollars, and more. Both inside and out, this cottage gives families and friends the perfect place to unwind, let loose, and reconnect.
