Over the years, we have had great experiences with the homes we’ve rented through CBPM. Being able to rely on that really makes our vacation wonderful.

A spacious, well located, lovely rental home. Our only additional feedback would be to let people know that the staircase leading to the second floor bedrooms is typical of older homes, but may not meet the needs of elderly or those with mobility issues. Always nice to know what to expect so that everyone’s needs are met.

Our family enjoyed many of the games that were available in the house. Our stay was short this time and we were thankful that the McRae House was available for us. I am sure given a longer time that we would enjoyed the TV, VCR, etc. devices that are in the house. Fireplace would have helped make it 'exceptional'.

The house is older and definitely dated in its design and decor. The stairs to access two of the four bedrooms are very steep and difficult for elderly and the very young. That said, the house included so many amenities that overcame these small drawbacks. We would definitely rent here again.

I loved the McRae house. It is such a beautiful example of an historic beach cottage. It is beautifully redone inside with the perfect touches to keep its original look and atmosphere. It was my dream of a cottage by the sea. We were very comfortable. (Stairs going upstairs are very steep but there is a bedroom downstairs for those who need it.)

Just about a half a block from the ocean! I especially liked the magical side yard with the little well and very nice, green lawn. Plenty of room to spread out, and a good point to mention concerning the house was one could talk in the rooms and not hear conversations upstairs. My family really loves the location as one is able to easily walk to shops and restaurants and very close access to 101. If you have children or someone who may be physically challenged, plan for them to stay in bedroom on lower floor as the stairs are steep going upstairs. The upstairs was quiet and the main bedroom upstairs had nice windows to allow air to circulate. You won't be disappointed!

Cannon Beach. The location is perfect. It is a short walk to the beach and very convenient to the main street. The home is well furnished with everything you may need. Our only concern was for our older guests that had to climb the stairs to sleep with no upstairs bathroom. We enjoyed our stay.

an OK place to stay, charming, pleasant,

awkward layout, no access to back or sides, lovely garden without easy access, no bath on second floor, very steep long stairs to second floor

second exit only thru basement- two flights of stairs a hall, a door to garage and the garage door. it felt UNSAFE with out a second easily accessible exit. fire place remote did not work.. kitchen well supplied with equipment and dishes, utensils, good lighting and lots of counter space. grill surface worn but usable. fold out couch was a major headache and wasted a lot of time. Loved the location for downtown access. Nice enough place but no desire to return.

Our family spent the first of what we plan to be an annual event at the McRae House in Cannon Beach - and it was wonderful! We couldn't have been in a better location with the beach a bare 1/2 block away and restaurants/shopping a block the other direction! House was very well maintained and provided plenty of stretching out room for our multi-generational family. It would have been nice if our family movie night could have taken place in the very spacious living room but the only TVs were located in kitchen and smaller tv/guest room - a little odd but overall a great place for enjoying all that this part of the Oregon Coast can provide. We would definitely consider this house again for our next visit.

We've stayed here before and usually ask for it if it's available. One of our favorite rental houses. Very comfortable with lots of places to disappear. Plus wi-fi!!! (A note to other owners, it's nice to be able to have 4 laptops and 4 smartphones connect to wi-fi - an increasingly more important requirement. We no longer stay in a places without wi-fi.)

I have lived in the Northwest for 20 years and been to the beach many times, but we never stayed in Cannon Beach. With relatives visiting from Georgia, we wanted their stay to be the essence of the Oregon coast, so we chose this cottage. It was just what we hoped it would be. We were in walking distance to town and the beach, and the house itself was a great place to relax and visit around the table. The yard was beautiful - full of hydrangeas. We left with wonderful memories of our time there.

We've rented a few houses in Cannon Beach, and this one was our favorite. It's an older house, but very well updated, and very well built (soundproof). It was a very cozy house, and we enjoyed the gas fireplace during our somewhat cool stay. We would definitely love to stay here again.

We were very pleased with this lovely home located one block from the beach and two blocks from town. The living room and dining room were much larger than shown in the pictures. Also, the kitchen eating area was roomy enough for 6. The house was very clean and in good shape. And, as usual, CBPM was wonderful to deal with. This was our 14th year working with them.

McRae is a very cute house in a great location. However, the furniture wasn't very comfortable for relaxing, esp. the couch, the dining chairs and the downstairs queen mattress. The yard is lovely, and an outdoor seating area would be great!

Beautiful home well taken care of. Excellent location. The only thing that was challenging was that there was no bathroom on the upper level, which is where 2 of the bedrooms are. There were too full baths on the main level though -- just poor water pressure in one of them, so our entire group ended up sharing 1 bathroom for showers.

The MacRae House is a great place to stay, we would stay there again! The location is unbeatable, a couple short blocks to town and the beach (very quiet considering its proximity to downtown). The house is located on a quiet street surrounded by other charming houses. The yard is very pretty, we enjoyed sitting out in the sun (when it came out). The house has lots of sleeping options and a very well equiped kitchen. What we liked best about the house: the yard, the kitchen, the LOCATION, the neighborhood, the gas fireplace, the antiques that give it a great feel. What could be improved: downtstairs bed was too soft, the couch in the living room is pretty worn out. Small draw backs to an otherwise great place to stay. I would describe the MacRae house as an authentic Cannon Beach Cottage with lots of room in the best area of Cannon Beach.

We loved the house and everything about it...from the "twin's bedroom" to the musty old basement with the rusting bicycles. We sometimes communicated by the "upstairs-downstairs telephone", (the floor grate)and played Scrabble at the games table with the fireplace on. The kitchen accommodated all four cooks at once and had all the equipment we needed and more. We could hear the ocean and walk easily to our cooking class at the end of the street and to the theatre to see "Clue". The bedrooms were comfortable with lots of hangers in the closet to accommodate the wedding attire and all the shopping we did. At the end of our wonderful 14 days we stood around the wishing well and wished that we could come back again.

Property was better than it appeared in pictures. Kitchen was spacious and good for the family gathering in the morning. Fireplace was great. Stairs to 2nd floor were narrow and steep.

This charming home is very well equipped. Everything we needed was available to us. We enjoyed easy access to the beach and the village; and, the yard is beautiful! The steep staircase to the second floor bedrooms made it difficult for some in our family and the living room furniture needs some upgrading. Overall, we would recommend it to others looking for a charming environment in a good location.

The McCrae home was absolutely perfect!!! It was so homey that in less than an hour we had all set ourselves up in our individual rooms and the kitchen was ready to begin a meal. Our greatest worry was that we had so integrated into the house that we might leave something behind. Close enough to hear and smell the ocean but protected from the wind and downtown is but minutes away.

We had a fabulous time here. Everything was in very good order and the location was perfect. The only concern was the "mustiness" of the house when we first arrived. Also the basement continued to have a very musty odor. Given that this was an old house I'm not sure what could be done about it and it would not prevent us from returning and enjoying another vacation there!
