When Lewis and Clark reached the mouth of the Columbia River in 1805, Captain Clark wrote in his journal, "Ocean in view, O! The Joy!" These words and the feelings they inspire now grace this beach house - the Ocean Joy. Spacious, tranquil, and beautifully set within a unique oceanfront and forest environment, this is the perfect place to enjoy Oregon's beautiful Arcadia Beach.
This 2300 square foot home is ideal for one or two couples, or a mature family (children 12 or older only). Surrounded by decks, the "eagle's nest" perched above has a 180 degree view taking in Haystack Rock, Tillamook Head, Castle Rock, and Arch Cape. The main decks and home have a partial view. Located at the end of a wooded and quiet road, enjoy the tranquil path to a secluded beach.
Its 2010 renovation and addition preserves an existing traditional beach cabin, while adding luxury in a light-filled, imaginative, homey design. Enjoy its gorgeous light woodwork, hardwood floors, tasteful and artful decoration, and maple cabinetry throughout. Chat in the mid-level cozy family / dining area enhanced by a gas fireplace, flames summoned at the flip of a switch, or enjoy views from the upper-level living / kitchen area.
While the main level features the heart of the home with gathering areas, master Queen bedroom and bathroom, and an ample utility area, the lower floor's separate entries, Queen bedroom, kitchenette, 3/4 bath, and additional Full size sofa bed provides its own individual privacy.
Let your spirit feast on gorgeous views from every room, or walk just a few minutes down a moderately steep path to the always-sandy beach to visit Hug Point tidal pools, dramatic sea cliffs, or perhaps spot the local bald eagles or deer. Though only four miles from the center of the Cannon Beach (by car), you're far enough away to have a beach mostly to yourself.
This is an Ocean Joy you will remember fondly.
