Cannon Beach Cottage Tour

a benefit for the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum

Oznick-Muncy Cottage

from the program:  This modernized traditional craftsman style dream home was built in 2007 and is a great example of how the past meets the present.  The owners used a contemporary approach to their living quarters by featuring original art by Cannon Beach’s own Bill Steidel and Portland’s Richard Thompson.  Be sure to check out the beautiful man-made fireplace which is constructed from original Oregon river rock.

The table settings had belonged to the owner's great grandmother.

Quinn’s Cottage (a vacation rental)

From the program: This classic maritime architectural style cottage was built in 1930 and the current homeowners purchased the home in 2004.  This home is a traditional Cannon Beach cottage with exposed shingle siding and parlor windows.  The cottage is thought to have started as a single-walled fishing shack in the early 30s and slowly got added onto over the years, with the most recent addition of the second floor from about the 1970s.

The upstairs was not available to view because of the narrow stairs. The volunteer host's daughter guarded the way.

You can view photos of the upstairs on the vacation rental website.

Sea Salt

from the program: This beautifully tranquil home as built in 1986 and formerly sat across the street from an earlier version of the Surfsand Resort, which was located on Spruce Street.  It is rumored that Sea Salt was one of Surfsand Resort’s units and was later relocated and remodeled in 2006 to its current location.

Sea Salt is a vacation rental, so you can see more photos here.

We had a walk to a few blocks to the next cottage and we photographed cottages, gardens, and beach.

Allan pointed out that we could walk west for a couple of blocks and take the beach road to the next cottage, so we did.

What I liked about this fancy big house was the copper roof.

I took so many photos of that white picket fence cottage exterior that I felt I might be bothering the folks inside.  They must be used to it.  I knew they were home by all the shoes on the front porch.
