Home Away From Home With Meredith Lodging: Rockaway Beach

You know you have arrived in Nedonna Beach when you spot a large, friendly, fluffy white dog named Gunner—a beloved local fixture who can usually be spotted looking wistfully out at the ocean from atop the dunes. Gunner was there to greet Oregon Home publisher Courtney Kutzman and her family when they pulled up to the Nickels Quarters, a newly renovated, luxurious two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home that’s one of the latest additions to Meredith Lodging’s roster of beachside vacation rentals.

Boasting a classic oceanfront view on a 7-mile stretch of stunning Nedonna Beach, the Nickels Quarters is a master class in beach-house interior design, with personal touches highlighting the family home’s history. It’s a dreamy, cozy, front-row seat to one of Oregon’s captivating winter seascapes.

All of the details in the Nickels Quarters align to give guests a truly special experience. Every room is tailored for coastal ambiance in every season, but wintertime is especially cozy with thoughtful touches throughout the home. The living room with its beamed ceilings glows with a mix of warm woods and sleek white. Set the mood by choosing the perfect record from the curated vinyl collection to cozy up to in front of the wood-burning fireplace. The fully equipped chef’s kitchen in the open living space gives you a captain’s view of both the hangout space and the windows to the beach, so you’ll never miss an opportunity to admire the view.

If you must leave the house, opportunities abound. The brand-new Rockaway Roastery carries small-batch roasts and baked goods from Cannon Beach Bakery, so stop there before hitching a ride on the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad. The 30-minute trip on a steam train from Rockaway Beach to Garibaldi (with a half-hour layover) delights kids and adults, and is an incredible way to check out the local scenery. Locals and visitors honk and wave as the train goes by, adding to the magic of the excursion. A quick stop to pick up dinner from Upper Crust Pizza is the perfect end to a perfect day.

Or, if you want to go a bit farther afield to take advantage of the local catch of the day, Riverside Fish & Chips in Nehalem serves classic fried fish and chips, as well as beverages to enjoy next to a bonfire by the Nehalem River.

From the stunning interiors, wraparound patio and panoramic ocean views to the private beach access and charming historic neighborhood, the Nickels Quarters checks every box for a desirable vacation rental.
