450 Sq. Ft. Cannon Beach Cottage

This is a 450 sq. ft. oceanside cottage located near Cannon Beach, OR. The homeowners currently use it as a vacation rental so you can enjoy staying here with ocean and mountain views if you wanted. And it’s just a short walk to the beach across the street.

When you go inside you’ll notice the space functions like a studio with a vibrant living/dining area and a spacious kitchen. The floor level also offers a queen size bed and bathroom. When you go up the stairs you’ll find an additional sleeping loft with a double bed and lounge area.

Outside there’s a large deck where you can enjoy the fresh air with a morning cup of coffee or tea. Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!

    Stunning. I love it! Is that a Murphy bed downstairs?

      No. Look at the picture you will see the entire bed frame sitting on the floor but not in any hideaway frame, standalone or built into the wall.

      Make an offer. If the offer is accepted, then yes, this unit is for sale.

    This house is highly functional! I like everything about it. I like that a murphy bed was fit into the first floor plan. Much more practical for people that don’t like climbing up and down ladders in the middle of the night. Don’t laugh! I’m over 50. lol.

      Sorry, you are wrong. There is no murphy bed here. Not at ground level or the upper level.

    I don’t think age has anything to do with choosing stairs over ladders; to me ladders make no sense at all. Illness seems not to enter minds when people have choose ladders. If I have a virus, I need to make it safely to a bathroom.

    I digress… lovely home, fabulous scenery and love the color palette chosen for this house. Maybe I missed it but, what makes the home a beach cottage?

      If you click on the “oceanside cottage” link, one of the photos says it is “steps to the beach” but I have to admit, I don’t see any pictures that show that. Anyway, does look like a beautiful home.

    I’ve stayed at this cottage. It is literally across the street to the ocean! Will stay there again! Love this place!

    It’s not a Murphy bed on the first floor look closely. It could easily have a Murphy bed on that wall and it would also give more room to get to the stairs.

    My wife and I stayed there again at Christmas. Living room furniture has been updated. It’s a super cool place and the beach is just across the street from the side of the house.

    I really love this place and can see how well it “fits” into the Cannon Beach area.

    Would be nice if folks would include a floor plan, as it’s really difficult to get a feel for how this is laid out. I love the Cedar shakes on the outside, and allowing them to weather naturally seems to fit with the landscape. Also love the openness of the roof design. Reminds me of what Brett, from New Zealand did.

    I did notice they did not put any casing around the windows? I sure would not like being the one to have to replace a window, as you would have to remove a bunch of siding to do so. I’ve actually seen a number of tiny house people doing this, and it’s poor construction practice. Windows need casing to get access to the mounting flange of the windows! As someone who has multiple rental units, and has had to replace windows, I notice things like this. Add to this they are highly susceptible to breakage from moving in THOW’s, and you have a recipe for disaster.

    Otherwise, I really like the interior space and design.

    Here at LargeMarge headquarters for the LargeMarge global conglomerate, we like the kitchen integrated with the sitting area. Nice for guests mingling with the cooks… or the cooks recruiting guests as occasional helpers. And of course, guests need to be available to taste-test, just in case. The door at either side of the kitchen visually-extends the feel of openness and utility. And this is probably just enough kitchen counters for prep and display. Let’s eat!

    Andrea, different cultures title different building levels different. In one culture, the ground level is the first story. Another culture requires ascending stairs to reach the first story. Ain’t life fun!

    But, Gadzooks! Two television sets! Who comes to Oregon!, to the beach!, on holiday!, to spectate downrange of televisionprogramming! [shudders in dismay, reaches for adult refreshment(s)]

      We were at Cannon Beach and a few days of horrific weather made us glad to have a TV. You just never know.

    This is a great Beach Cabin — I am not so sure about full time living as you just need to have closet space for your clothes and I do not see that here– well, there is that small closet and dresser under the stairs, but for me not near enough. Actually if I were living in this full time I would turn that entire upper area into a closet office space and I am not sure that would be enough — LOL. Also I understand the reason for the open window like idea in the upstairs bedroom area, but heaven help if you fall or trip and go out that open window and land down below. I would put decorative boards or screening across that to keep it open but a little safer — especially if you have children with you. Perhaps it has plexiglass, but does not appear too. I think I would also change that downstairs bed to a murphy bed, then you would not feel like you were eating in the bedroom — plus if there was inclement weather and you needed to be inside it would give more space for gathering etc.

    I love the size of the kitchen and having that large deck is great — I can envision an outdoor kitchen area as well there and changing that window in the kitchen to a pass through window situation, along with great place to relax. All-n-all they did a great job with the use of space.

    I would have never thought about the window frames, great mention on that. Those windows, however, look to me to be aluminum frames with sliders and would not necessarily need another window frame — I think you can just pop the window piece out and replace the glass and put it back — but I most certainly can be wrong about that. But definitely a good thing to consider when building your own, whether it be on a solid foundation or a trailer.

    Anyway, I really like this and would love to stay in it on vacation — I would even consider buying it if I had the money.
