We stayed at Captains Cottage for three nights in July. The owner is really nice and always just a quick phone call away for troubleshooting or even local information. The cottage is nicely remodeled and tastefully decorated. Six people or two couples can totally stay comfortably here.
Plenty of clean bedding and towels. Well stocked kitchen. The gas barbecue is nice, but we didn't get to sit outside much because it was windy in the afternoon. The private boat dock is truly nice, and my kids were content just standing there looking at the dragonflies and sea skaters. We paddled our kayak up and down the river only a little bit, and the kids loved it, even though we didn't get as far as the ocean beach yet (3 miles one way). The location of the cottage for visitors to the Oregon Dunes, because the famous Jessie Honeyman State Park is mere five minute drive away, and the South Jetty County Park only 15 minutes away. The restaurants at the Old Town are fairly close too. One caution... Plus
