I stayed at Anchorage Cottages (#1) 9/12-9/15/17. The cottage was neat and clean with cute beach decor. Cottage 1 has a kitchenette with a little sitting area and one en suite bedroom/bathroom. The kitchen has basic utensils and cookware; enough for basic meal prep. I saw lots of great comments about the management but I only saw someone briefly to check in and another person briefly who chatted with us outside; both were nice.
The cottages are situated at the north end of town about a mile from the shops. There are 4 bikes available for use or walk or drive if you want to do the shopping scene. I was there to visit family in Ilwaco who runs a fishing charter business during summer.
The beach is about 1/2 mile walk down a path, through the dunes. The wonderful thing about this beach is it is much less traveled than near the drive-on access points farther south. I saw a couple vehicles make the trek but mostly it's just miles of sandy, less populated beaches.
This is a pet friendly property. My dog was welcomed and she loved all the places to walk. The paved Discover trail bisects the beach path on its winding journey east/west. Discover trail runs generally north-south. The endless trails made it a great destination for people with pets!
There are endless things to do in Longbeach, Ilwaco and surrounding areas especially if you're the outdoorsy type. Check out Cape Disappointment State Park, Longbeach and Ilwaco water front. And if you like to fish, there are lots of charters. Of course I'm biased for Alpha Anglers since that is my son-in-law. Since you are so close, you may as well head to Astoria. Just crossing the bridge is quite an experience! Is super long and huge ships go under it on their journey up the Columbia. Certain times of the year, humpback whales have been coming into the Columbia to dine on anchovies and other small fish. You might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse.
I'll come back to the Anchorage Cottages! I had a very pleasant stay.
