We love this place, have been back about 4 or 5 times. Very quiet and peaceful, clean and well kept up. Close enough to restaurants and groceries, yet even closer to the beach!
—Becky from McMinnville, OR

We had such a wonderful visit to the Oregon Coast and the Whimsy Cottage. We were there for 8 days and it was the best vacation and a beautiful time of year. We will be back! Highly recommend this clean and cozy cottage.
—Damian and Gina from Boise ID

From the Journal: June 30--July 11, 2019. This was our eighth year staying at Whimsy Cottage and exploring the Oregon Coast. We revisited old places and also found new hiking trails and other places to explore. ..Thank you, Whimsy Cottage!
—Mitchell Family from LA

What a wonderful place to stay on the coast. The cottage is very "hygge" as we Scandis like to say. Every sunset is a delight and you're within 20 minutes of all kinds of beach/trail/recreation spots. Also, Carol was great in helping to arrange our stay. Definitely staying here again. Whimsical indeed.
—Levi from Spokane

Stayed at Whimsy Cottage May 9-11, 2018. Very nice, clean, comfortable, quiet and yes we could see the ocean and hear it from the front deck. Carol the owner made some great suggestions of places to see and restaurants to try. All very nice.
And close to both Waldport and Newport where there are beautiful lighthouses and seals.
—Colleen from Riggins Idaho

Whenever I need to escape to the ocean, I go to this little gem in Seal Rock. I just love how small and cozy it is, perfect for my family of four. I love the peekaboo view of the ocean and the fact that there are two awesome beaches to walk and play on. Seal Rock State Park is gorgeous at sunset and just a second away. The sushi restaurant, Yuzens, is one of my favorites. Carol, the owner, is so gracious and accommodating. Any issues, she's able to find a solution right away. If you are looking for an affordable getaway on the coast, look no further, you have found it!
—Sarah Jetton from Bend, Oregon

We loved Whimsy Cottage. It was so quiet on Swallow St. We both feel so refreshed. Thank you for sharing.
—KG from Salem area, Oregon

Whimsy cottage is the perfect place to relax if you like beautiful coastal scenes and lots of peace and quiet. The cottage was clean and well kept and had games, puzzles and everything we needed for a restful weekend. Newport and Walport are so close when you want to go into town, but the seclusion and privacy of the cottage in Seal rock was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back again.
—Tim Cogswell from Eugene Oregon

With a nephew's wedding in early August and a niece's wedding in late September rather than traveling twice across the country from Delaware to Oregon I chose to remain in Oregon at Whimsy cottage. I couldn't have made a better choice for my month long stay. Well kept and cozy Whimsy Cottage is easy to take care of perfect place to fall asleep at night to the sound of the breaking surf. The neighborhood was wonderfully quiet, one can see the ocean from the cottage, and there is all the beautiful Oregon coast at one's disposal. Seal Rock State Park, just a brief 5 minute walk from the cottage has a beautiful beach, wonderful tidal pools and impressive surf crashing against the off shore rocks. All a photographer's delight! Oh yes, and there are seals on a rock!
—Andrew from Delaware

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. I love the area it is located in and that Newport is just a short drive away. It was nice to see a little of the ocean while drinking my coffee in the morning. And the little things, like having a closet stocked with toys, games and puzzles so my children had something to do while it was raining make a difference. We will be returning in the future!
—Jamie from Portland area

We just returned from a second amazing stay at this cottage. It's the perfect place for our family of 4. The owners have done such a nice job making it cozy and comfortable. And the location is excellent for exploring the coast. The best part of this little cottage is sitting out on the front deck and watching the sun set over the ocean. We will definitely come back again and again!
