Overview

About the property

Your new favorite vacation rental is just across the street from the sand on the delightfully isolated Cape Meares spit. The home has expansive views from every window. The ocean, Cape Meares Lake and the coastal range hover about in sun and clouds, changing as the day meanders along.

Venture out the front door for a beach walk or launch the tandem kayak from the backyard. You may see Elk, Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, Osprey and more. The area is rich in history, flora and fauna. When you tire of the great outdoors, put a log on the fire, nestle up and enjoy the “modern rustic” ambiance inside. Read about the nearby town that fell into the sea, (the book’s at the house) and enjoy the distraction of the landscape. Storm watching is great as the clouds roll off the ocean, under the house, and resurface on the lake.

The house features a Great Room (kitchen & living), large deck with grill, wood stove (with free firewood), laundry washer & dryer, 2 bedrooms with 1 queen size bed in each, and 1 bath. The expansive sofa easily converts into 2 twin-sized beds and comfortably sleeps 2. House sleeps 6 total. Free WIFI Internet. No landline phone or television.

The kitchen is fully stocked with a microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, blender and all basic amenities. We have extra bedding, games for the kids, and all you need for a comfortable getaway. We recommend you arrive with food in hand, as the nearest grocery is a 15-minute drive to the Tillamook Safeway.

We're happy to accommodate early check-in and late check-out when available.

Dogs are allowed with a non-refundable $35 deposit. We even have dishes for Fido. Please note: There is a 2 dog max and we request the pups mind their manners and wipe their paws.

Book now to ensure your crew’s escape to one of Oregon’s hidden treasures.

About Genna Golden

I live and work in PDX and help run the family business. I have been a lifelong outdoor exploring Oregonian who loves yoga, design, and gardening. I strive to start Happy Hour at a reasonable time and bathe my children at least once a week.

Why Genna Golden chose Cape Meares

We wanted a vacation spot where our 2 kids could roam about and experience nature for hours on end. We feel so fortunate to have found this place, perched out on the spit. It fulfills every time and we love that it’s only 1 hour 45 minutes from our Portland home.

Nice cozy place for two

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Cape Meares at different times and have always enjoyed.The last resort was a very nice stay.I know the post says that 6 can stay,but 6 would be very crowded,and you would have to have two sleeping on the couch,but it is doable,being a wrap around couch in the living room.It would be just fine for two couples.The bed was comfortable,and being in the rainy season,the house was very warm,it took very little to heat the house.There are a few games,but if you like board games or cards,bring your own.You have a beautiful view ,ocean in front,the lakefront in back.The cell phone signal is hit and miss,but you have a very good wifi if your into that.The owner Genna was very helpful and quick to respond.You will enjoy your stay at last resort.

Tranquility by the ocean and the lake!

  • 5 of 5

After three weeks of motel rooms it was pure heaven to check in to this lovely house. Fabulous location with views to the ocean from the lounge room and front bedroom and deck, and views to the lake from the kitchen, second bedroom and deck. Washer/dryer inside the house. Full kitchen facilities. Lovely fireplace and comfortable lounge. Beds were very comfortable. Games cupboard full of board games and puzzles. Walked from southern end of beach up to Cape Meares to the lighthouse. 15-20 min scenic drive along the lake to Tillamook for restaurants and shopping. We wish we could have stayed longer. Would not hesitate to recommend this house. Thank you Gemma.

The view, the simplicity, the location... NEAT and UNIQUE and RARE and SPECIAL!

  • 5 of 5

Sleeping for 4 comfortably, up to 6 if you don't mind sharing public spaces for sleeping. The views were breathtaking and it had everything we could have needed. It was a short 10-15 minute drive to several hikes, including several GIANT trees, a lighthouse, and a waterfall. Tillamook cheese factory and Roseanna's Cafe were awesome highlights. We're saving this rental info.

Beautiful, quaint, cozy, clean, comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

This home on the lake with a view of the ocean was so quaint and comfortable. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, and proximity to the beach for walking and exploring was great.

Loved the deck for wine and sunsets and coffee in the morning! We will be back! Thank you!

Lovely beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at The Last Resort and are already planning when we can return. Its unique location between the lake and the ocean, coupled with the beautifully decorated interiors, make this place something special. The views from the house are off the hook. There's incredible birdwatching, even just standing at the sink washing a dish. The house is very comfortable and cozy. Very easy access to the uncrowded, gorgeous beach. We didn't want to leave! Highly recommend.

ABOUT CAPE MEARES

The spit is rich in history. It was once home to Bayocean Park, a luxury turn of the century resort experience, which required it’s own yacht to reach. Alas, development of only one jetty changed the erosion pattern and the once grand resort slowly fell into the sea. The town is long gone, but what first enamored the developers still surrounds you. You can bike, hike and fish in the area and enjoy wonderful views of Tillamook Bay and it’s marine culture.

There is an interest in rezoning the spit from Recreation Management to Recreation Natural, which would preserve the land as a natural area and eliminate the option to develop. For those who have spent time here, you can see why preservation is in order. A herd of elk roams the land; it is home to Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, Osprey, and much more. It is a bird watcher’s paradise, and fishermen may line the lake, depending on what was recently stocked. Boats come and go from the bay, and the night sky is dark enough to study your constellations.
