Dowd House

Prepare for a cozy and wonderful stay in Dowd House, a historic oceanfront home with two living areas steeped in classic Oregon Coast cottage detail. Perched on a high cliff above the southern side of Alsea Bay, you’ll have sea views from the home and panoramic outdoor views of the south and north sand spits, Alsea Bay and the Pacific. You’ll love the eclectic, old-world details of the cottage, from beamed wood ceilings, antique furnishings and an amazing rock-and-shell-embedded wood-burning fireplace hearth with clever sailing ships on the mantle. An adorable galley kitchen, with blue painted cabinets and glass drawer pulls, is fully equipped. So is a second kitchen, along with a second living room, making this a great home to share with another family. There’s one ground-level bedroom with a nearby bath, and two upstairs sleeping areas, each with its own staircase. One side has a bath and two bedrooms, a queen and an ocean-view king with a charming twin bed with a window to the sea. The other side is a wood-lined queen suite with a private ocean-view deck. Located down a lane in a quiet residential area, Dowd House is just up the hill from Waldport, walking distance to the Hilltop Cafe-Bistro, and an easy drive to all the fun activities in Newport or Florence, with all the stellar scenery in between.

No TV necessary

Lisa H.
We had so much fun together! No one even reached for the remote. We were with family that live here in Oregon and we drove from southern Utah. The location was excellent! We found the home very charming—it was old, but that added to our experience. We used the whole house! One kitchen was for food prep and the other was for our family barista and other beverages. We had a great time!

Comfortable house in a great location

Laura M.
This house is comfortable and well located. The ocean views are amazing and ocean access is a short walk away. It definitely has some charm but it's also a bit funky. You'll have 2 kitchens, one of which is very well stocked and easy to use, the other is too old to be operational but there is a fridge which is useful. There are also 2 family/living rooms on this property which is nice if you're looking for separate spaces to gather. The beds were all pretty comfortable and appliances and TVs all worked well. The furnishings were comfortable but worn in some cases. Overall, a nice place for a group to stay.

A wonderful stay for Christmas holiday. The house has a nice collection of antique decorations. It was fun to count the number of boat models all around the house. The location is convenient too.

Thanksgiving 2019

Stuart and Vickie J.
Our family really enjoyed the stay at the house. The separate living areas allowed my wife and I to get away from the kids and all the craziness when we need to. The views from the property are awesome and the beach access just a couple of house away made for an excellent experience. The home was well equipped and having 2 kitchens made cooking Thanksgiving dinner a breeze. Being able to walk to the Hilltop Bistro was another plus. Best Dungeness crab benedict on the coast and a great beer selection. One of our favorite eateries. We would definitely return.

Sea Captain's House

Jim R.
We loved Dowd House. If you are looking for a warm, wood themed charming Sea Captain type of house - this is it! With three woodworking fireplaces and three full baths - it was a perfect family get-away, ON the beach. The view form the master bedroom in the newer half is perfect- Mom loved just sitting on the bed and looking out, watching the fire and reading and the kitchen downstairs is well equipped. The original house is cozy with an excellent main fireplace and authentic "Sea-Captain" antique decor. It was perfect for our extended family get-away. (plus three TV's if you don't want to read, beach comb or whale watch or storm watch).
Manager Response
Jim thank you for your wonderful review of Dowd House! We are happy you and your family loved your stay! The location is tough to beat! As is the incredible view! We hope you and your family come stay again soon!

Wonderful!

It was wonderful. The view from the house. Loved have 2 kitchens. The door between the two sides was great for our large group since we did all our cooking in the big kitchen and set up drinks, coffee and snacks in the smaller kitchen. I was surprised by the quality of the pots and pans in the kitchen. They were like brand new. The big table was great for our crafting. I just wish it was even bigger so we could have family reunions. it gets 5 stars from us!

The perfect beach house.

Carolyn M
My family and I rented the entire Dowd House for our combined family vacation. It was just perfect for all of us. Loved the proximity to the beach, the ease in getting onto the beach and its location to many different sights to see. It was old and charming and we were so comfortable there. Having access to two kitchens was so helpful. Plenty of bathrooms and comfortable living areas. We simply loved it there. I personally loved browsing through the old books !!
