Shutterbug Cottage

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 10, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

31975 Donlon Lane Arch Cape, OR 97102 United States

Privacy and Cape Cod charm define Shutterbug Cottage, located in peaceful Arch Cape overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Situated just west of Highway 101, the cottage is minutes from Cannon Beach and Manzanita, and only one block from the beach. Offered by Starfish Vacation Rentals, it includes fun amenities for all ages, making it an ideal getaway for families and small groups.

The cottage has a cozy beach house feel, but it comfortably sleeps eight to ten guests. Its three bedrooms downstairs and large bedroom upstairs meet nearly every sleeping arrangement you need. Adults usually take their pick between the king-sized bed in the master bedroom at one end of the house and the queen-sized bed in the room at the opposite end. Most kids choose to sleep in the big bedroom upstairs, which has three twin beds, one double bed, and a futon. For the littlest pirate or princess, there’s a downstairs bedroom with a twin bed and all manner of games, books, and toys for younger kids. Two bathrooms downstairs (one with a shower and one with a shower and tub) and a washer/dryer make cleanliness easy, even at the beach.

The spacious kitchen with its ocean view makes meal preparation a pleasure. The wraparound deck along the west and south sides of the house takes you to a side yard where you can grill dinner on the gas BBQ or just enjoy watching the kids play. There’s plenty to do indoors as well. The cottage has an upstairs great room with a satellite-equipped TV, an original record player with tons of classic vinyl records, and a kid’s play area with toys, games, and puzzles for all ages. The living room downstairs—with its wood-burning fireplace and comfortable, overstuffed seating for everyone—provides another natural gathering spot.

From the cute décor to the clean, uncluttered feel throughout the house, Shutterbug Cottage reflects the unique appeal of Arch Cape. The beach here is lovely and never crowded, unless you count the wildlife! Guests have seen puffins, sea lions, seals, starfish, sand dollars, and more. Both inside and out, this cottage gives families and friends the perfect place to unwind, let loose, and reconnect.

    ANNE M from PORTLAND, OR recommends this vacation rental

    We rented this house during a family reunion at the coast. The upstairs was perfect for the kids to sleep and play while the adults enjoyed the quieter downstairs. Short walk to a mostly private beach. Very clean and well stocked; a bit dated, but functional. The rental company was very communicative and professional. I would recommend!

    • Manager Responded on 7/9/2017

      Thanks so much for your feedback. Cable internet has now been installed via Charter (as of 7/7/17) and is 1000% faster than CenturyLink. Cell service along the coast can be spotty - with the newly installed fast internet we now can suggest Wi-Fi calling from the house.

    Really enjoyed staying at the Shutterbug Cottage. It was nicely updated yet still kept the old time feel of a beach cottage. Clean and looked just like the pictures. There was some road noise which another review gave us a heads up so we brought ear plugs which helped. Beds were comfy, lots of towels and sheets. Amenities like a hotel with little soaps and shampoos, even a welcome basket with starter coffee packet, creamers, popcorn & local chocolate.

    • Manager Responded on 2/24/2017

      So sorry about the batteries in the remote. As part of our prep for our guests' arrival, we check the operation of the TVs, so we are sorry we didn't catch that. We look forward to your return!

    Andrea Z from Port Orchard, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We take an annual trip to Cannon Beach each year, this year we decided to rent a house. This was truly a great decision.
    We showed up to the lights on and warmth in the house, very inviting. We instantly fell in love with this gem. We had ten people in our party, two families, and it was just perfect. The kitchen was just right and full equipped for our needs. We enjoyed the ability to spread out and totally enjoy ourselves.
    The walk to the beach was just right and we had a mix of weather, so the moments we couldn't walk to the beach we witnessed the waves from the front of the house. We slept with our windows open and heard the waves crashing all night.
    The only thing we would say was a negative the wifi was slow. But that would not hinder us again from staying here. We loved it.

    • Manager Responded on 7/9/2017

      We're happy to hear how much you and your family enjoyed your vacation at Shutterbug Cottage. The internet has been updated to Charter Wifi so it's super fast now (as of 7/7/17). We hope you'll be back to give it a try!

    a guest from Tigard, OR recommends this vacation rental

    The experience was mostly positive---we were in Cannon Beach for a daughter's wedding. However, on Friday evening we were hosting a dinner for visiting family and friends and per the amenities description we planned to grill hamburgers. About 30 minutes before guests arrived, we discovered that the grill was not functioning. We made a run into CB to try and find gas, but even that did not help. Ended up frying a lot of hamburgers in the kitchen---not the best scenario for anybody!For a home that sleeps 10, there are not enough bathrooms or trash cans. Also, the house is right beside Hwy 101 and has a lot of traffic noise early in the morning. The property management rep was very responsive and professional when we asked for assistance and we did enjoy our stay for the most part.

    • Manager Responded on 2/24/2017

      Glad your overall stay was positive. We are so sorry we didn't know about the grill - it has now been repaired. There is a backup propane tank so you shouldn't have to get a refill during your stay. As stated in the description, there are two full bathrooms at this home. The location marker on the map is correct - it is the 1st home west of the highway (which also means it's only a block to the beach!).

    a guest from Gresham, OR does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The house was satisfactory for our family of 9. We ended up going to cannon beach several times and seaside twice so I think arch cape has a nice beach but we did more driving than intended so will try areas north instead.
    Good customer service by manager.

    • Manager Responded on 2/24/2017

      Arch Cape beach is a two miles long secluded stretch of coastline with tide pools at both ends which are accessible at low tide. Hug Point is at the north end of the beach - caves and a waterfall to explore. However, there are no restaurants and shops in Arch Cape. If you are looking for a beach without crowds, this is it!

    Great set up for a family with little kiddos Alot for them to do, including ping pong, basketball, and lots of sand toys for the beach. Backyard is pretty small for the kids. Kitchen was supplied well, but did run out of paper products in middle of stay. Home is located up against the freeway and can be noisy at times, loggers! Internet is pretty sparce at times. Short little walk to beach, easy for all to do.

    Heidi B from Issaquah, WA recommends this vacation rental

    The cottage is cute, clean and the grounds are nicely maintained. The situation for us was difficult because we had two children, one almost two and the other just two, who were with us. The toys and kid friendly decor was nice. However the property, though close to the beach, is parallel to Hwy 101. If traffic noise doesn't bother you this isn't an issue. However, with two lively toddlers the proximity to Hwy 101 was really upsetting. There was no barrier from the front door to the highway. I think that if a gate was put on the porch, and another one along the back of the house was placed this has the potential to be a great family place. We brought two gates from home but the front porch opening was too wide for them.
    The microwave and garbage disposal barely worked, although I believe the microwave will be replaced. Dishwasher and aundry facilities were good, and there were plenty of beds for sleeping options.
    The property management company was just excellent. They were very professional, replied in a timely manner and were quite helpful.
    I would recommend the property to people who didn't have children under six. The price was good and atmosphere was positive.

    • Manager Responded on 5/14/2016

      We very much regret that the home did not suite all of your needs. We’ve had many families stay here and normally love it with all the kid-centric amenities. While the yard is not completely fenced in, there is a 6' fence all along the 50 foot easement with the highway. Additionally the front door and deck face the ocean whereas the highway is on the opposite side of the house. A child would need to walk around to the east side of the house and then walk down a 30+ foot long driveway to gain access to the highway. The microwave is being replaced and the garbage disposal had been working fine. Our handyman cleared the plastic out of it and now it's working fine again.

    We had a nice time at the Shutterbug cottage over a long weekend. House was as advertized. Also, it's in a quiet part of the coast, but within quick driving distance to services. The beach access was awesome--a quick walk and you're there.
    You will hear road noise from 101 in the back bedroom. Nothing that should prevent you from booking the place, but FYI.
    Place was super tidy. Stocked with everything you need to cook.
    2 small suggestions: 1. the house needs a frying pan. 2. PLEASE upgrade the Wifi. It was horribly slow.
    We'd be back for sure. Lovely time.

    Shutterbug Cottage had plenty of room for our family of eight to spread out and plenty to keep us entertained. The record player was, by far, the most exciting in the house for our teenagers and younger kids alike. We loved the ping pong table also. The location provided some nice quiet streets for our kids to ride their bikes. It was also conveniently located so that we could head south for hiking and pizza in Manzanita or head north for fun in Cannon Beach. We had a great time, thank you!

    Our extended family enjoyed the holidays at Shutterbug Cottage. The upstairs space was perfect for the younger(college age) family members who liked staying up late while their parents could sleep downstairs. The house was clean, well-furnished, and ideally located. We were able to walk the beach and do some hiking in the area on most days. All in all, it was a great spot for a week-long family gathering. We highly recommend it.

    We had great time in this rental vacation home. The home is very clean and well maintained. easy walk to the beach. the beach is quite private. The house has very nice toys for younger and older kids. It also provides beach toys. The house is very spacious.

    A couple of drawbacks: 1) it is relatively close to a highway 101. it is a bit noisy once you step outside, but fine inside. 2) the upper floor has funny shape. the middle section has normal height but the two sides of the ceiling have slopes. it means that you can bump you head to the ceiling if you are a bit close to the side of the room.

    Our stay at Shutterbug Cottage was amazing! We lived every minute of it. It was clean, spacious, and decorated so darling, we really felt like it was a cape cod house. We went with my brother and his family and we all agreed that we'd stay here again in a heart beat. The beach was really close, not much of a walk. Because of the great location we were able to go to Cannon beach and Indian beach as well very easily. Indian beach was our favorite, such a hidden treasure.
