The Heron's Nest Vacation Rental 5695 5th St. NW, Cape Meares, OR 97141

Nestled between the Cape Meares Lake and the Pacific Ocean lies the Heron's Nest. With enticing ocean views and beach access just two blocks away, this light and bright, family-friendly vacation home has everything you need for your ideal beach vacation.

This two-level home has two bedrooms; the first is on the ground floor with a comfy queen bed and sliding door access to the spacious backyard, which leads back to the forest -- great for views of Cape Meares Lake and wildlife, and for enjoying the outdoor fire pit. There is a full bathroom with a washer and dryer on the ground floor as well. The second room upstairs includes another queen bed with plush bedding and a set of bunk beds, making it a great kids' space. The second full bathroom is on the upper floor as well.

As you enter the spacious great room, you are greeted by a window wall of wonderful ocean views that stretch from one end of the room to the other. The oversized leather couches face the ocean and even recline to offer the maximum amount of relaxation and comfort.

There is electric forced air heat, and keeps you warm on chilly nights. There are a wide array of board and card games as well as books to keep the whole family entertained. The home also includes a 32" HDTV with a DVD and VCR player, as well as a few DVDs for movie watching.

In addition, the garage is host to a plethora of outdoor toys. From sand pails and shovels to a clam gun and a canoe, you'll have plenty to do down at the beach and lake. You can even use the tide clock in the living room to find the best time to check out the tide pools and caves in the nearby cove!

A well-appointed open kitchen, dishwasher, and expandable dining table that seats six and expands to 12 makes cooking family meals an enjoyable experience. There are eight extra chairs and a folding table as well that could be used for ocean view meals on the wrap-around deck outside.

Cape Meares is a tranquil community with no services but plenty of natural wonders to keep you entertained: From the long stretch of sandy beaches, the bay for clamming and fishing to the historic lighthouse for hiking and wildlife viewing. Cape Meares is also a short drive from Tillamook for quaint restaurants, grocery stores, museums and more!

The house is dog friendly but please note the house is strictly limited to one small well-behaved dog per stay.

    Our family chose this particular home and the Cape Meares area for a certain reason..and we got exactly what we wanted! Completely relaxing, peaceful, enjoyable and the best vacation ever. It was very refreshing to leave the world of technology behind and just soak up the fantastic atmosphere that this home and Cape Meares has to offer...even our "kids" (21, 17 & 14) agreed! On a daily basis we went for walks around the community, spent hours at the beach having adventures and finished it off with nights of movies and popcorn! Some of our favorite moments were the two perfect sunsets that we were able to savor during our 7-day stay and then on the last night we had an incredible bonfire on the beach. Don't miss out on the fort building on the beach or the great wildlife that you see constantly. There was a sweet doe and her fawn that would visit each morning along with some chipmunks. Cape Meares is now our new favorite place to visit. We already are planning to definitely be back next year to stay at this home to enjoy another week of relaxation. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

    Loved the home, very clean and decorated tastefully. One thing I might suggest is having a griddle available for making pancakes on. There was a few chips in ceramic table wear which did not bother me but I was concerned that my group might be held responsible for the damage. I very much appreciated the 2 note books with instructions, recommendations and local information for sightseeing brochures. Very helpful.

    My husband and I went to the coast for our honeymoon and we could not have been happier with our choice to rent a house on the coast! We had a very relaxing couple of days and loved venturing into Tillamook during the day to try different restaurants and do "touristy" things. We especially loved the easy access to the beach and went for a long run along the ocean one of our mornings there. I couldn't imagine a more serene place to rest up after the non-stop action during the days leading up to our wedding. :)

    Some times we just need to slow down to appreciate life. This was one of those times and Heron's Nest was the perfect place for doing so. When we walked in we felt like we were at home. The home was quiet, cozy, had every thing we needed to enjoy out time there. Cape Mears is our kind of place, very laid back. We played games, walked on the beach, caught clams at Netarts bay, and read books. Just what we needed to come back home refreshed.

    This was our first experience with Vacasa rentals and it was a home run!!! The Heron's Nest home was not only impeccably clean, the furnishings were comfortable yet stylish. We loved the games, and how well the house was stocked with just about anything you would want. We DEFINITELY will be staying here again! I highly recommend it. The only con I could say was not having even local channels on the TV and no internet. But then again maybe not having that is what made it a vacation! Thank you so very much for a wonderful weekend!

    We chose this property for a few reasons. The price, location, fireplace, and number of beds. Everything lived up to our expectations. The fireplace was wonderful. The beds were very soft. Everything was clean and well stocked. We brought all our own food, and didn't leave Cape Meares once.

    The house was wonderful and cozy. You felt right at home and comfortable the minute you walked in the doors. The beds and couches were super comfortable. Lots of snuggly blankets for cool evenings and sleeping with the windows open so you can to hear the ocean. The beach was a short walk and it was so quiet and relaxing. There were 5 of us and we all fit just fine. There was no TV but we were able to rent DVD's at Safeway and RedBox in Tillamook. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of dishes but could of used a larger frying pan and the BBQ was small for trying to BBQ steaks for 6 but we made due. It was a Perfect Vacation. I hope to return in the fall and re-book for next July. Thank you for providing such a wonderful relaxing and cozy home.

    The small town of Cape Meares was a beautiful backdrop for our family vacation on the Oregon Coast. The house was perfect for our small brood (2 small children) and the house had pretty much everything we could have needed or wanted. It's a short walk or bike ride to the beach which was mostly secluded. The option to use the canoe on the nearby lake was also a bonus. The house is very well taken care of and we truly enjoyed our stay.

    It was a really nice, cozy beach house for a perfect get away. The house was very well equipped, organized and I couldn't ask for more. The beach was close enough for you to see, smell, and hear the magnificence from the ocean from the beach house. I would highly recommend!

    We were impressed with the number of games, crafts, and outdoor toys provided for entertaining children. Our three daughters had the best time playing. We never ran out of things to do. The short walk to the beach was perfect. We also appreciated the binder full of information about local attractions. We went to the lighthouse, the octopus tree, Brewin' In the Wind, the Tillamook Air Museum, and Munson Creek Falls all based on the recommendations in the book. What a fun time! Thank you!

    I enjoyed a splendid weekend at this comfortable home with friends recently. Lots of room for us (6 adults) to spread out, relax, read, dance, cook (great setup for prepping) and hang out at the fire pit out back gazing at the amazing stars. The beach was an easy stroll a few blocks away to body surf and hike up or down to the light house. Quiet neighborhood that was beckons me to return. A 5 star vacation site!! Kim L.

    We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this beach house, located just a quick walk from the great tide pools and hidden treasures beach of Cape Mears. (Every day the tide brought surprises.) The open floor plan with windows providing expansive view of the ocean worked well for our large group. We prepared meals in the fully and well equipped kitchen and grill on the deck wrapping around the house. In the back yard, protected from the wind, we could enjoy marshmellows roasted in the fire pit. Everything was clean and well cared for. We can't wait to go back!
