Overview

About the property

Clean and cozy, 550 sq. ft cottage with kitchenette, laundry, view from patio.

Bay Cove Cottage B is one side of a rustic 1940s cottage duplex. It is a clean and cozy, the interior is a pastel-colored 550 sq ft apartment with one bedroom and a fold-out couch in the living room. The kitchen and bathroom with shower are simple, and retain original vintage character. There is no stove or oven, but a microwave, skillet, and portable single burner rangette, for the most basic cooking, and a small refrigerator are provided in the kitchen. The vintage bathroom is small, with no tub and the shower has a small entry (16 inches wide). We are offering the cottages as the basic option of Bay Cove properties and offer few amenities. Cable TV is provided, Wifi is available throughout, there is a full-sized refrigerator with ice maker and a coin-operated laundry service in a separate room in the duplex. The owner's residence is nearby, on the same lot as the cottages, and may also be rented. There is partial bay view from the apartment, and a small patio with fire pit is available for a spectacular view of the bay and Charleston harbor. A laundry room with tall table and chairs offers great bay views while enjoying coffee or a glass of wine, when the weather is not suitable for patio use. We can direct you to easy bayshore access that requires a 500 foot walk along Cape Arago Hwy., or other easy bay access for clamming or crabbing within short driving distances of less than one mile.

About John and Candy Chatt

We are a retired couple, John a federal wildlife biologist, Candy a swim coach and airline employee, and both former Nebraska farmers.

We consider ourselves adventurous, spontaneous, budget travelers and love meeting new people to share travel experiences.

John and Candy Chatt purchased this cottage in 2014

Why John and Candy Chatt chose Coastal Oregon

We have lived in the immediate area since moving to Coos Bay from Corvallis in 1999. We recently moved into a home that we thought would be a perfect place to share with others in beautiful Charleston, on the southern coast of Oregon. We also enjoy all outdoor activities, birdwatching, hiking, kayaking and just observing the wonders of nature.

What makes this cottage unique

We felt fortunate to happen across this wonderful part of our country, the best overall climate we have ever encountered, fresh air, and plenty of room to wander to our heart's content, without the hustle and bustle found in so many other places. We love the diversity of habitats in the area and the associated diversity of bird species that are regularly seen. The views and solitude of walking on a private beach provide a never ending source of enjoyment and relaxation. We felt even more fortunate to have the opportunity to acquire additional similar property within 500 feet of our home. We always considered this property as having great potential as a vacation rental, and now we are trying to make that dream come true.

Clean and cozy! Our hosts were so helpful and kind. They let our kiddos use their beach toys and made us feel right at home during our short stay.

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

Quaint cottage, very clean and stacked with everything you could possibly need. We were there for one night only but wish we could have stayed longer. The owners are very welcoming and easy to chat with. We loved it!

We'd like to stay again!

  • 4 of 5

Cottage B was better than a hotel room in the area for us (budget-minded, outdoor adventurers/creatives): a GREAT bed (Beautyrest Recharge mattress), well-equipped kitchenette, lots more space, and a nice view to watch the boat basin. The unmarked Oregon State Parks' Natural Area is a short walk away, which takes you to the channel's edge and lots of birds to watch on its pond, too. Don't let the narrow shower entry scare you, it's a good "normal" size once you're inside. Only negative preventing that fifth star: a bit of road noise in the middle of the night, even though this unit isn't right on the highway. It's a great value for the price. John and Candy were very hospitable, helpful, and very accessible when questions arose. Don't miss out on the EXCELLENT clam chowder at High Tide Cafe in Charleston!!!!

We love the breathtaking views in the area, including from our backyard and deck. Charleston is an authentic fishing village and the entire area remains an unspoiled gem on the Oregon Coast. The area is a birdwatching paradise for shorebirds and seabirds, as well as other species in the diverse habitat in the area. Harbor seals and sea lions are abundant and easily seen throughout the area. Whale watching is popular from several scenic points along Cape Arago Hwy, and the Shore Acres Formal Flower Gardens and holiday light display, scenic coastal hiking trails, and tidepools, are popular attractions, along with spectacular wave watching during winter storms. Our location is on on the bay near the beginning of the South Slough National Estuarine Reserve, and we can assist you with advice, maps, and tide info for a great kayak adventure into the Slough. Enjoy a relaxing golf game at nearby Sunset Bay Golf course (7 minutes away) or travel 19 miles to the world famous Bandon Dunes courses. Crabbing and clamming is available from the docks and the mudflats, and we would be glad to to provide a crab trap or a bucket and shovel for clamming along with a few pointers, and maybe even a demonstration to get you started.
