Large landscaped backyard. Serene. All-seasons Beach Home. Vintage collections and original Artwork. Best combination of contemporary and vintage styles. Over 300 movies.
HISTORIC SCOUT'S COTTAGE: Utterly charming in a perfect location. The best amenities, fully equipped, your own personal hot tub, close to everything, one block to beach, quiet lovely neighborhood, super comfy beds and great attention to detail.
We have a strict no smoking/ no pets allowed policy.
Up to six guests are welcome to stay at Scout's Cottage. We have real beds for up to five guests but also have a sleeper-sofa to accommodate a total of six people. Immaculate one-of-a-kind vacation cottage. The entire home is yours! It's charming, special and comfortable. You will be in complete vacation mode from the minute you park the car!
Scout's Cottage is located next to Historic Birdie's Cottage (find out more at: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/4032390?s=2RWT). You can rent both cottages which accommodates up to 9 guests.
SEASIDE: 'Enjoy the clear ocean air of one of the world's most beautiful beaches.' source: NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC. Seaside is THE seashore destination for experiencing popular year-round attractions. And staying at our Cottage will complete your perfect vacation.
THE COTTAGE: A wooden gateway entrance, picket fence and landscaped yard welcome you to Scout's Cottage. Walk down the stone steps to begin your relaxing stay at this charming 100+-year-old beach cottage. You can hear and smell the fresh sea air, just 1 block away.
Your own personal hot tub, outdoor shower, large oval patio and lawn chairs, a BBQ grill and beautifully landscaped backyard give you an additional "room" to enjoy both day and night.
Open the front door of Scout's Cottage and the first room to welcome you is the Sun Room: surrounded with large glass windows, shiny hardwood floor, glossy white wood walls, books, sofa, chairs, a wooden doll house, toys, games, umbrellas, and even walking sticks.
The Kitchen: Spacious; sunny and unique. Our guests say this is their dream kitchen! A large glass front cupboard is filled with a wide choice of colorful vintage dinnerware, ranging from 1950s restaurant dishes to 1960s promotional plastic ware. The kitchen's highlight is the stainless steel six burners gas Decor stove. All the expected modern appliances are here, including a microwave, coffeemaker, full size refrigerator, and dishwasher. There's specially designed shelves that hold vintage souvenir salt & pepper shakers; on the wall are brightly colored 1950s fruit chalkware, Oregon coastal memorabilia, a reclaimed neon sign and a large country table which seats eight.
The Bathroom: Downstairs, spacious with a combination claw foot bathtub/shower combination. All the toweling, shampoo and hand soaps are provided.
The Back Porch: Contains the washer and dryer, and washing supplies. Iron and ironing board. No coin operated machines here.
The Living Room: Large, comfy, beautifully furnished, original paintings, murals and delightful collections to enjoy looking at for hours. Many guests have said they wanted to stay and explore the interior of the cottage rather than going to the beach! The sofa is also a queen-size sleeper.
One of our sons owns an independent DVD/VIDEO store in Portland; which means we can honestly say we have a fantastic collection of movies to enjoy! We always have 300+ movies at the cottage and each one is clearly marked with a rating code.
Another son owns a popular music store in Portland, Jackpot Records, and he makes sure we are stocked with a wide variety of CDs to offer to our guests.
There's a library of novels and nonfiction reading, especially books about the Lewis and Clark Expedition, along with local authors. The walls are filled with historic photographs, original artwork, and a reclaimed mural. The walls are the original dark wood panels with 9 windows making this room cozy and happy. A large red enamel gas fireplace keeps you warm no matter what the weather is doing outside.
Collector's Bedroom: The bed is queen sized with freshly washed sheets, blankets and quilts to keep you warm. The large painted 1940s mural, that originally hung above the entrance to a long-time beloved souvenir shop in downtown Seaside, now hangs above the bed. In the middle of this painted landscape mural is the word 'Collectors'. This describes the room perfectly! There are dozens of historic photographs of Oregon shipwrecks, Oregon coastal maps, and local photographs which span over 100 years.
One wall is covered with dozens of 1940s vintage wooden plaques. If you've never seen these whimsical images you'll surely enjoy reading what is carved or written on them. Very popular in the early part of the 1900s up to the 1950s, these souvenir plaques were one of the first vacation souvenirs that families would pick up as they traveled in their cars from state to state.
Paradise Bedroom: The other section of the painted mural resides in this pretty room. It has the painted word 'Paradise' on it. We think this word describes this room quite nicely. Homemade quilts are on each of the beds. There is a double size bed and a twin size bed in the bedroom. On one wall is a collection of vintage souvenir state plates, on another wall are turn of the century tin-foil artwork known as reverse painting with tin-foil and dates back to victorian time.
We are very proud of Scout's Cottage and are committed to making your stay with us a memorable one.
Historic Scout's Cottage is located on a serene closed-end street. However, within minutes you can be at the beach (1 block), on the Promenade (1.5 blocks), fishing and crabbing at the River (1.5 blocks). The Convention Center and downtown are within walking distance or a 2-4 minute drive.

Interaktion mit Gästen
About a month before our guests arrive, I send them a welcome letter. This letter details how special our cottage is. Along with information relevant to their upcoming visit. My guests have often expressed to me that they appreciated receiving such relevant information ahead of time. It took the guess work out of their visit.
I also send our guests my monthly "Guide to Seaside and the North Oregon Coast". It is filled with a wide assortment of places to visit, activities that are available, special events and much more. There's always tons to see and do!
In addition, I also send a list of recommended favorite restaurants located in Seaside, Cannon Beach, Gearhart, Astoria and even a few that are in Washington State but a short drive from Astoria.
For families, I include a list of activities that are relevant to those who are pre-teens and younger.

I only charge one fee, other than my nightly fee, and that is the housekeeper's fee. This entire fee goes to Barb, who has been with us since day one and who makes sure our home is immaculate for each guest.
I pay the required 9.8% Lodging Tax instead of adding this fee to your cost. (This is a substantial savings,for example: It would cost you an additional $27.00 if you had to pay this fee for a "two nights stay" at our lowest rate and $54.00 and up if you had to pay this fee for a "two nights stay" at our highest rate!
In addition, there are NO handling (or manager) fees, washer/dryer fees or additional hidden fees.
