Directions to the Eagle’s Nest:
Please use these directions for at least the last bit. Google Maps will get you lost at the turnaround circle below the Nest!
Coming from the North:
Head south on Hwy 101, past Cannon Beach, Arch Cape and Oswald West State Park, and up over Neahkahnie Mountain. As you head down 101 on the south side of the mountain, turn right (west) at the first turn as you near the bottom. It is marked with an arrow “To Neahkahnie Beach” on a large highway sign and a small street sign says Nehalem Road. (If you miss that turn you can turn right at either of the next two turns, through Manzanita heading toward the beach and then back north on the beach road to the three way stop described below).
Head west down Nehalem Road towards the beach to a three way stop at the beach. Turn right (north towards the mountain), and you’re on Beulah Reed Road. Head north up the road for one mile. When you see the green highway mile marker 1 sign (and a Neighborhood Watch sign) you will be heading into a turnaround loop. At the back of the turnaround there will be two mailboxes and signs directing you to keep left on around the circle. [Google Maps gets you lost here.] Disobey the signs. Instead, go straight onto the gravelly road that curves to the right up into the woods. The Eagle’s Nest is the third driveway on the right from that point (about 500 feet). The house number is out by a rock: 38745 (as is the owner’s house, 38755). You will see two cedar-shingled buildings – the one to the right is the Eagle’s Nest and the one beyond is the owner’s house. If you get lost and have a cell phone you can call us at 503-440-1342 or 503-440-9525 to get untangled.
Coming from the South:
Follow Hwy 101 north through Nehalem. In 2 miles, you will come around a large S curve with the Big Wave Cafe on your left – the main turn off to Manzanita (Laneda Avenue). Go past there and past the second turn off (Manzanita Avenue). At the third turn off, starting to head up Neahkahnie Mountain, turn left. It is marked with an arrow To Neahkahnie Beach on a large highway sign, and a small street sign says Nehalem Road. Then follow the directions in the second paragraph above.
Information about the Eagle’s Nest
There are two parking places for the Nest facing the garage doors. Please leave a third space for a turn-around for our house. Sorry, no room for boats and trailers.
When you arrive, you will find the key in the door. Please return the key to the door when you depart at the end, so we know it’s OK to clean.
The Eagle’s Nest has two sleeping areas: a loft upstairs, with a long double bed, a sink, toilet and the VCR/DVD: and a bedroom downstairs with a queen 12 inch memory foam bed and a full bath (shower & bathtub). Although we are not able to accommodate more than four people, there is also a fold-out futon couch in the living room that would make it possible for three sleeping areas. Sheets are in a basket under it, extra blankets in the bedroom. The back of the log chair also rotates down for sleeping a small one.
The kitchen has a stove, small fridge (with use of the freezer in our garage upstairs off the loft), microwave, a 4-cup electric coffee maker, coffee grinder, coffee drip cone with filters, a teapot, and toaster. There are pots, pans, bowls, a spaghetti pot, a colander and most of the common cooking utensils. The kitchen is equipped with condiments, such as salt, pepper, spices, and vinegar.
There is no dishwasher and no TV, though there is a DVD/video player. There is free wifi connection and an iPod/iPhone charger/speaker system that will also work with a computer.
The Eagle’s Nest is supplied with kindling and split wood for the wood stove. If you need more wood for a beach fire, you can find some to buy at the local markets.
We’re happy to take care of a reasonable amount of garbage and there are two cans in the garage. We encourage you to join us in recycling: Please put your washed returnables and recyclables (glass, metal, plastic, newspaper, aceptic containers like milk and ice cream cartons) in the marked tubs in the garage (accessible through the upstairs loft). You are also welcome to add to our food composting system.
More detailed instructions are in a three-ringed binder you will find on the round table. We hope you’ll also sign our guestbook and let us know what works and doesn’t work for you. If you feel so moved we’d love a review on our VRBO listing.
Call Lane or check in with Tom next door if you have questions. Enjoy your stay!
