About the property

WONDERFUL 3 BDRM 2 BA House, Fireplace - All Just Steps From 28 Miles of Beach

Our comfy beach house sits steps away from miles of incredible beach. It's the perfect place to make the most of your getaway. Go razor clamming in season, enjoy beach combing, fly a kite, explore seaside towns, take a run on the beach, visit a lighthouse, shuck some oysters or just curl up by the fire with a good book. Our beach house is the perfect spot to enjoy it all!

Our beach house has a unique, multi-level layout. We love to cook and the kitchen is well equipped. The centerpiece of the cozy living room (and house) is a wonderful fireplace that warms everything up.

Sleeping - There are 2 bedrooms off the main floor with a queen-sized bed in each and a QS sleeper sofa in the living room. There is a twin bed and a half-bath downstairs.

Bathrooms - The main bathroom accessed thru the master bedroom has wonderful shower with a fantastic skylight. The half-bath is in the lower level.

The Levels - There are 2 steps separating the living room area and kitchen as well as up to the master bedroom and bath. There is a stairway leading down the the lower sleeping area (twin bed) and half bath. The house is entered from the lower level and interior stairway or exterior stairs and upper deck.

We can accommodate up to 6 people.

Fun and Games - We have Wi-Fi, DirecTV and Netflix. There are lots of board games for your enjoyment. (Please note that while we subscribe to the best internet service available this is a more rural area so the internet can have issues at times such as during storms, etc) We also have a badminton and bocce ball set. We have kites galore and beach chairs in the garage for your use.

We provide a gas BBQ. If oysters are on the menu, go up to Oysterville and get world-famous Willapa Bay oysters fresh off the boat. We have shucking knives at the ready and a great outdoor cleaning table. Serve them as shooters or hot off the grill for a true northwest feast.

About Russ Woodruff

Our family has owned the beach house since 2002. Our daughter was 1 1/2 when we first started coming to the beach. It is her favorite place in the world and she doesn't ever remember the house not being in our family. That's the way it should be.

Russ Woodruff purchased this house in 2002

Why Russ Woodruff chose Long Beach Peninsula

I grew up on the east coast and our family made regular trips to the beach. Those trips are some of my favorite childhood memories. The beach house provides my family and our guests with similar, wonderful opportunities.

What makes this house unique

We're far enough from busy areas to provide a peaceful get-away yet close enough to be part of the area's many fun activities whenever we want. We are steps away from the dunes and 28 miles of incredible beach. You can't ask for more.

cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cottage. We did not expect to encounter the intense wintry weather (rain, sleet, snow, hail and big winds!), so our walks on the beach were limited to a few times when the skies cleared. This allowed us to truly enjoy the comfort and peace inside of this home. This cottage has a welcoming feel and indeed, it was our home away from home for 4 days. Russ was very helpful and extremely prompt in replying to our emails.

A real home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Seriously, not only is this home comfortable... but it is well stocked. Beds are comfortable... lots of wood for the fireplace. The kitchen had everything we needed, including pots...pans.... glassware... even spices and flour... really! There were kites in the garage.... a grill... even a canoe. It is a short walk across the dunes to the beach. All of this for cheaper than a hotel! We will be back!

Great location, very close to the beach

  • 3 of 5

The house was clean and in a great location. We liked that we could walk out to the beach and see deer on the way. The neighborhood was very quiet. However, we did experience issues with the WiFi and were not able to use it at all. The house was not child proof and Russ did mention it so we brought our own gate to place above the staircase going down from the living room. Our toddler son did slip and fall on the stairs leading up to the master bedroom from the living room while trying to climb up them because though there were only a few steps, they were very tall. Also, be aware that since there are high ceilings which was very nice, it also made the sound carry everywhere. Communication with Russ was very easy.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at the beach. We love seeing the deer! As we describe in the listing, the house has a unique multi-level layout with some internal stairs. Many quests have commented on how fun they find the layout. While all stairs have secure handrails, little ones may need some help up and down. So sorry your toddler had a mishap. I wish you had contacted me or our local property manager about the wi-fi. Not sure what the issue was as I can connect from Seattle to the wi-fi thermostat. I'll check it out to make sure all is OK. Thank you for choosing our beach house for your getaway.

Great location with easy walk to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Great vacation house, stocked with just about everything needed. Beach trail is only a couple houses down and a quick walk to the beach. Very quiet dead-end street. Great central location on the peninsula. We headed north to Oysterville to buy oysters and south to check out the shops/restaurants in Long Beach and hike to the lighthouse at Cape Disappointment. Miles and miles of beach to drive and check out birds and different things the tide brings in. Fun trip!!

Perfectly close to the beach, on a private road, about 3 miles from town

  • 5 of 5

We take our kids on a trip every summer. We try to go to a new place every time. The kids have already said they don't want to go anywhere else. We will definitely be back next summer!

We love to go to the beach throughout the year. No matter the season, there are always fun things happening. Here are a few of our favorites:

* Summer brings long days on the beach. Hike, read, build sand castles, watch the many types of birds, hunt for sand dollars. The beach provides for as much or as little as you want to do.

* The 4th of July is one big neighborhood celebration. Walk to the beach in the evening to see jaw-dropping amount of fireworks as far as you can see in either direction.

* August - See some of the most fantastic kites in the world during the International Kite Festival.

* September – Labor Day weekend has all sorts of fun activites on the peninsula. If cars are your thing then you won't want to miss the Rod Run to the End of the World

* Oct 1 - Nov 15: Wild Mushroom Celebrations: Restaurants & Classes. Want to hunt for some your selves? The peninsula has some of the best mushrooms in the world.

* Mid-Oct: The Cranberrian Festival gets you up close to our famous cranberry bogs. One Sky One World Kite Festival

* Nov/Dec: The holidays bring parades and tree lighting to Long Beach along with the lighted boat parade and 'The World's tallest Crab Pot Christmas Tree' in Ilwaco at the south end of the peninsula. And then there is the one and only 'Tuba Christmas' in Ilwaco in mid Dec.

* May: Loyalty Day parade in Long Beach is lots of fun. Memorial Day weekend kicks off the summer season. Looking for treasures? This weekend also includes the World’s Longest Garage Sale – with sales up and down the peninsula.

* June: The Garlic Festival in Ocean Park gets our vote for most fragrant.

* We love to walk to the beach and dig for razor clams fall, winter and spring. We've got clam gear ready to go.

* Bring a lunch and go for a day hike in Leadbetter Point State Park at the northern tip of the peninsula.

* Enjoy the fun shops in Ocean Park, Long Beach and Ilwaco.

* Want to explore a bit further. This is a great spot for easy day trips to historic Astoria, Seaside and Cannon Beach. Plus the journey involves the spectacular 4 mile bridge crossing the Columbia River.
