|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Now is the time to stay a little longer at Mermaids Landing! Off-season, we offer a week stay for just $900. Winter weeknights (excl holidays) for just $175 (for two people).
Mermaids Landing is a picture-perfect, super comfortable, extremely functional little beachfront gem of a beach cottage that lives very big! With a magazine-quality decor and easy care finishes, it's just the place to spend a weekend... or a month or two on the Oregon coast!
Writers & painters love it! Also great for those 'girlfriend getaways', honeymoons and other special occasions... most of our guests say they don't want to leave!
The great room is big enough to host a party, but intimate enough just for two! Satellite TV, filled bookshelves, lux white leather sectional sofa, and a fantastic coconut shell chandelier! A daybed that also converts to a queen bed allows 4 people to be very well accommodated in this special place!
The compact, but very functional as well as artsy kitchen is an entertainers delight (6 burner gas cooktop, quality small appliances & equipment as well as pretty dishes and plenty of glassware)!
Two unique, very beachy 'dock' decks add real character to this cottage, one the entry porch and the other heads from the great room out toward the beach. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee, summer barbecues and/or wine afternoons!
Upstairs, the bedroom is a true respite, light & airy in creams & aqua with vaulted ceilings, a subtle 'wave' wall (so soothing to drift off to sleep or awaken to), and an extremely comfortable king bed (seriously: 6 people have purchased the same bed after sleeping in it, and the 7th just said they plan to!) There's a computer desk at the window for those who must do a little work; the view from it might make it a bit hard to concentrate on work however!
A full size washer & dryer plus a custom bath: lighthouse stripes climb one wall, while a custom (created by the owner) glass tile octopus surrounds a porthole in the shower, giving you peek at the bay even while you wash!
Be forewarned: a stay at mermaids cottage may be addictive... you WILL be back!!

Sue Lyons purchased this cottage in 2010
We built Mermaids Landing in 2012 as a 'temporary' cottage, actually the future double garage of a larger planned beach house. After living in the cottage for a summer, we realized we loved little now!! We are happy to share this special retreat so that others can enjoy it too!
Stained concrete floors downstairs make for easy-care, barefoot beach living! The open plan make this space absolutely delightful with a ton of light and excellent views of the water, sand and ever-changing weather patterns. Take your morning cup of coffee for a beach walk, sit around a beach bonfire at night. In between, there are countless things to do... or just do nothing. Either way, we are certain you will be more than delighted with this simple but beautiful beach abode... deigned especially for casual living at the Oregon Coast.
We had a great time at this cottage. I loved the decor; it was very unique and special. The view of the bay was fabulous. The kitchen had everything I needed to make a great meal and I could have left my french press at home since it even had that! We would stay here again.
I almost hate to write this review, letting out the best kept secret on the Oregon Coast! Mermaid's Landing is idyllic - cozy, quiet, artsy, beautifully decorated, and the location is perfect!! Every morning we watched the birds and seals, the view changing with the tides. A medium walk to the Taft area brings you to Mo's and access to the beach, as this property is on the Bay - better than the beach!! We booked for a month, extended an additional week, and wished we never had to leave!! We'll be back!! Suzy and Greg have opened their gem of a cottage to all of us, don't pass this retreat by!! Thank you!
Had a wonderful stay at Mermaids Landing. Location was fantastic...close proximity to shops, restaurants and the beach. Perfect location. The cottage is beautifully decorated and provided us with a nice cozy experience. Can't wait to go back. We highly recommend Mermaids Landing.
My sister came from Wisconsin for her Spring Break and I wanted to find a coastal home that was quaint and comfortable. This little beach house fit the bill perfectly. Great location, we explored the coast to the south and north. We experienced cold and blustery weather our entire stay but we knew we would return to a cozy, comfy beach cottage at the end of each day.
I will rent in the future and bring my husband for a romantic getaway. This house is perfect for two!
Thank you Sue for letting us enjoy for little piece of heaven!
Really enjoyed the layout and location of this cottage. Every item was thought out so that the space was used to the maximum. If you enjoy cooking, there was a great gas range. We were there over Christmas and New Years so we did the traditional turkey dinner and it worked out great. We went down for the stormy season and were not disappointed. We fell asleep every night listening to the waves. In the morning we had a few of the bay from our bedroom. The shower was awesome. Having a washer and dryer made life easier (we were there 4 weeks).
We had a couple of concerns. We didn't use the BBQ as we did not care for where it was located and it was not as clean as we would want. The house was due for a really good dusting. The furniture in the living room was a disappointment as it was supposed to be white leather and it ended up being totally different from what was in the advertisement.
All this being said, we would recommend this cottage to our friends, and would stay here again ourselves. We really did enjoy ourselves.
If your are looking for a great restaurant to go and have seafood, we went to Mo's and their Seafood Chowder was divine!
We stayed again for 4 weeks and loved it. Great location, cool house, fantastic views and so nice we hate to leave. I strongly recommend it and hope to return for yet another stay!
We loved this vacation cottage on the bay . . . . plenty of room for 2 people to spread out and enjoy the space (much better than a hotel!). Direct access to the beach for walks and great views/sunsets! The homeowner made things very easy and provided a lot of helpful information about the home and surrounding area.
Right in our local area (Taft), there's a great neighborhood gym (Fitness 101), grocery store, kids arcade gallery, great restaurants, bonfire building, kite flying, kayaking and clamming on the flats and fishing up the Salmon River or along Salishan spit if you've got a boat.
This is a no-smoking property. Pets are not allowed, unless authorized by owners.
