About the property

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

The Razor Clam season is here! Check WSFW.org website for the next scheduled clamming dates.

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

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.

Cute house, clean, very close to the beach, communicative/helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

A very cute house much more home like and less sterile than many previous experiences. The master bathroom and kitchen both have big skylights that flood the spaces with natural light, even on grey PNW days. Just a short walk through the dunes to the beach, which is lovely. I had to email the owner with a couple of questions, and he replied promptly, and was friendly and helpful. The owner(s) also let us use their clam guns, which we used to catch our limit of incredible razor clams... If you're looking for Ritz and dazzle, this isn't your rental... If you're looking for down-home comfy cozy and convenient, book this one!

Quaint beach house, about a half a block to the ocean. On a very quiet street, away from crowds.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved my stay at Russ' beach house. I left the bedroom window open at night to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. Such a relaxing couple of days. At night I would go outside to see the sky full of stars. I even saw a shooting star. The fireplace was wonderful at night, very cozy. The property is so close to the miles and miles of sand and ocean. Just down the street and over the little sand dune, and you are there. Will be back .

Simple and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Awesome place to stay at the ocean. Plenty of room for everyone and the place was very clean and comfortable. We loved using the fireplace at night. The grand kids had a blast on the tire swing and access to the ocean was a short easy trail.

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!

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.

Long Beach
Car: necessary

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.
