The Anchorage Cottages

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.

We'd stay here again in a Long Beach minute. We were in Cottage 2: adorable beachy decor, a fireplace, perfect little kitchenette, a separate roomy bedroom, a big bathroom with mid-century fixtures, which we loved. Solid doors, light and bright, clean and comfortable. Dedicated parking spot. Staff leaves you alone unless you need something. There is no daily room cleaning unless you ask for it, but we don't need our sheets changed every day and we can hang up our own towels. Beth and Karri were very friendly and Mitsu the Shih Tsu was the perfect greeter. Not far from the beach; you can hear the surf. Large outdoor area if you want to play badminton or other games. Pet friendly. It is located a little farther away from the main street with the shops and restaurants than we expected, but we had a car and we appreciated the opportunity to enjoy the bustle of town when we wanted to and be away from it when we didn't. Be sure to check out the Cottage Bakery on the main drag every morning for coffee and the most amazing pastries. We almost needed a forklift to get us out of there most mornings.

These little cottages are neat and clean and loaded with everything you could want. Games, books, movies to check out, bikes to use, yard games, basketball hoops, etc. the perfect place to just pull in and relax. Plus the owners are so nice and accommodating. Could not have picked a better place for us and our 3 teenage boys.

We stayed at the Anchorage for one night in June. We were the last couple to check in that night so got a call from the management that they were leaving but would tape our key on the door. We enjoyed the friendly and familiar atmosphere of the place. To enjoy the resort, one should really stay longer. There is so much to do in the area - some things within walking distance. The grounds are well kept, gardens add color and there is a private dock across the road on a charming body of water.

The cottages are rustic, quaint and clean. Our unit had a small kitchen that was equipped for food preparation. Other than the bedroom, there is not much sitting area. We sat at the breakfast table to watch the TV on top of the microwave. The cottage appeared to be well maintained. I would recommend this place to people who want an out-of-the-way placed to slow down, enjoy fresh air, and experience the sea.

My friend and I stayed three nights in early June and enjoyed the peaceful setting. I'm sure the entire town gets super busy and noisy during the summer and it looks perfect for a family get away. The path is a quick walk to the beach and you will not be disappointed, bring your own beach chairs or a blanket to sit on.

We had access to the cruiser bikes and appreciate the hospitality from the Manager.

Would stay here again!

Room Tip: We booked a two bedroom cabin and there was plenty of space for two of us.
