The Cottages of Yachats, Oregon

 
 
 
Several posts ago I mentioned we had begun our house hunting adventure in Yachats, a charming village on Oregon's central coast. Our time there was more for the purpose of relaxation than for a serious home search, but that didn't keep me from photographing some of the cottages I discovered on one of my walks.
 
I didn't find many brown cottages in Yachats, and this one seems more like a cabin I would have seen in the Colorado Rockies. The trees and flowers are definitely not reminiscent of the mountains, though. So pretty.
 
 
 
 

The detail on this cottage's siding is delightful.  I love the contrasting blues. And that pop of pink roses is the perfect accent.
 

 
 
The little enclosed porch on this cottage is so sweet.

 
 
 
 

 
This is a wonderful cottage. Very beachy
 
 
 
A vintage cottage with a little business in front. The paint job really sets off the trim on this one.

 
 
 
And this cottage is my favorite. It's very tiny, but large in charm. A plethora of buoys covers the fence. So colorful and creative. 
 
 
 
 


My husband thought so, too, and captured the scene in watercolor




I hope you enjoyed these quaint cottages. I'm ready to go back to Yachats and find more to photograph.

    1. Thanks, Lynne. It's been six weeks since we began our search, and I have to say I'm ready to settle down now. I think we've logged over 6,000 miles on our Suburban and living in motels, while fun for awhile, gets old after this much time.

    1. Thank you kindly for your nice comment, Kathleen. And for taking the time to visit. I visited Cape Code about 10 years ago. Loved it and would like to go back.
