The Dude's Abode is a small, 1969 A-Frame in the small oceanfront community of the Alpine Chalets. We are set in a forested, high-bank oceanfront 7-Acre setting at Otter Rock, along with 10 other privately owned chalets. The community shares a private path with access to the best surfing beach in the area!

Restored to a 1969 vibe, fans of vintage A-Frame villages, surfers, and free spirits will love this spot.

An original "tiny house" village at the beach, this 656 Square foot A-Frame Chalet has a kitchen, living room with vaulted ceiling (open to the loft), bedroom, and ensuite bath on the main level. The upper level loft has 2 twin beds, a built in desk, and a peek of the ocean framed by shore pines out the upper window. The lower bedroom has a queen bed.

Loft access is by a ladder with rails, so this would not be suitable for a toddler or a child who is not a good stair-climber yet. The ensuite bath is shared, so access for all guests through the main (downstairs) bedroom. It's a classic cabin-style, for families and close friends who don't mind sharing space. We have restored this home to its 1969 look.

You'll love the location, the coziness, the high ceilings. The Dude's Abode is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets). The Abode is very popular-- if it is unavailable for your dates, check out our New Listing "Mermaid's Rest" in the same village.

The seven acre grounds include 2 firepits and barbecue areas, park benches, a swing-set, grassy and forested areas. Most of this part of the coast has steep staircases for beach access, so you'll enjoy the stroll down through the beach on a meandering path, with just a few stairs at beach level. Access is about a mile from public access either direction, so this area is much less crowded than other beaches any time of year. Beautiful long view of the beach, from Devils Punchbowl to the North to Yaquina Head lighthouse to the South.

We won't be in your space during your stay, but are often nearby and have staff who can help in the event of an emergency. There is a groundskeeper (Lance) who lives full time on the Alpine Chalets property, in the event of emergency or security issues.

Otter Rock is a small community along the "Otter Crest Loop" a beautiful, scenic section of historic Highway 101 between Newport and Depoe Bay, Oregon. This whole section of the Oregon Coast is "high bank" Oceanfront, with most beach access by steep staircase. Our Alpine Chalets community is special for the 7 acre grounds (shared by only 11 separate Chalets) and for the hiking path down to the beach. The path is a bit steep at the top, but is generally easier to use than public access stairs in this area. Usually deserted and very private, that privacy changes for surf school! We are just south of the popular Otter Rock surfing beach and are perfect for your surf getaway. The old highway is close to Hwy 101.

1 mile North is public access for surfing, the Devils Punchbowl State Park, and Otter Rock Marine Preserve with tidepools. 8 miles south in Newport with shopping, a fishing fleet, charters, and the Oregon Coast Aquarium.

Car is recommended. We are on the Oregon Coast bicycle route; and would be a great stop for hard-care cyclists doing their dream 101 ride.
No stairs into unit; main bedroom, bath and kitchen on one level. Please ask if you have accessibility concerns.

2 parking spaces in assigned parking space. Driveway is the far south end of Otter Crest Loop, marked "Alpine Chalets." 10 minute drive South to Newport, 10 minute drive North to Depoe Bay.

We love Oregon! We found an amazing "super 70s" custom home in 2013, restored, preserved, designed and curated the interior to create our dream home and share it with others. "Brannholm" is our love letter to the 1970s slow pace with water, sun, fun, and long conversations by the fire--the perfect place to build your memories with family and friends.
