When Lewis and Clark reached the mouth of the Columbia River in 1805 Captain Clark wrote, "Ocean in view O! The Joy!" in his journal. These words and the feelings they invoke now grace this beach house, Ocean Joy'spacious, tranquil, and beautifully set into unique oceanfront and forest surroundings. The perfect place for one or two couples, or a family of up to six, to enjoy Oregon's beautiful Arcadia Beach. This 2300 sq.ft home is surrounded by 1500 sq.ft. of view decks, including an "eagle's nest" deck on top with 180 degree views of Haystack Rock and Tillamook Head on the north, to Castle Rock and Arch Cape on the south. Child-proofing challenges make this a home for mature children 12 & older. Its 2010 renovation/addition preserves an existing traditional beach cabin and adds luxury in a light-filled, imaginative, yet homey design at the end of a very quiet street with no close neighbors, overlooking the beach. Enjoy its gorgeous light woodwork, hardwood floors, tasteful and artful decoration, and maple cabinetry throughout. Chat in the family room comforted by gas fireplace flames you summon at the flip of a switch?no chopping or fire starting here. Enjoy the company of the others in your party and the individual privacy afforded by the lower floor's separate entries, bedroom, kitchenette, 3/4 bath, and full size sofa bed. Upstairs, unwind in the jetted whirlpool tub and listen to Pandora Internet radio or an iPod cradle. Let your spirit feast on gorgeous views from every room, while standing outside at the Weber gas BBQ, or while reading on the 6' padded bench in the yard under a massive spruce tree overlooking the ocean. Or walk just a couple minutes down (a moderately steep path) to the always-sandy beach to visit Hug Point tidal pools and dramatic sea cliffs, and perhaps spot the local bald eagles or a visiting deer. It's only four miles from the center of the Cannon Beach shops by car, but that's far enough that you'll have the beach mostly to yourself. An Ocean Joy you will always remember fondly. Accommodates 6, no smoking no pets allowed. 7 night minimum stay for the summer months.
