Weekend at Seabrook - Part 3

Hello friends, let's continue our 
tour of the beach house in Seabrook, WA
that my family rented at the end of October. 

Seabrook is located a few miles
past Aberdeen along the Washington coast, 
just a 3 hour drive from my foothills home. 

The house we rented is the dark shingled
beauty with the blue trim. 
It has 3 floors and a carriage house. 

With 5 couples splitting the cost,
(My four children and us)
it was very affordable.
There are all sizes of cottages for rent, 
from small bungalows to very large estates
that will sleep up to 20.

I previously rented a small bungalow
 with my daughters in Sept., 2013.
You can take a peek Here

Let's continue on, shall we?

Stepping inside the gate, we see a cozy grouping
of Adirondack chairs around a fire-pit. 

My son brought along firewood, but it rained
during the evenings and we didn't get a chance
to enjoy it. 

He left the firewood for the next renters :)

We walk around to the back deck....
Sweet little gardens where ferns 
 and redwood sorrel line the fence.

White oyster shells (on right) were used as mulch
throughout the community.

More comfy chairs as we climb up to the back deck.

There was also a hot tub on the other side.

Let's go inside and continue the tour.

We ended last time at the Master bedroom on
the 2nd floor.

The second bedroom was decorated in
a sweet cottage style that I really loved.

Comfy pillows and a little shadow-box
of tiny sea stars.

The white 'pillows' are actually extra
towels for the bath. A nice idea for a guest room.

Soft and pretty details.

The third bedroom had an autumn feel.

Another pretty mirror.

Let's go up to the third floor, shall we?

This large room was set up with children in mind.

A large, cozy seating area.

Colorful bunks with nautical accents.

Weathered wood game table.

Daughter Jennie had fun in the fully stocked 'kitchen' :)

Child sized table.

Let's go back outside to explore the
carriage house.

This room is above the garage
and is easily reached by crossing the back deck.

A patriotic theme.

There was a beverage station on the opposite wall
with coffee maker, microwave and small refrigerator.

This room was set up for a family
with bunks and a cozy reading nook.


We all agreed that we should make this an
annual event!

In my final post on our visit to Seabrook,
we will take a lovely walk to the Sea.

I hope you will join me!



  1. That is a fantastic house! I adore that third floor space. Very charming!

  2. I can't image of a better place for a family to spend some time together..The owners have obviously thought of everyone including the kids when they furnished the house and carriage house....I wish I wasn't so far away or I think I would have to check this place out.....

  7. It just gets better and better! The children's room is wonderful with so many fun things to explore. A real treat. :-)

  8. Enjoyed sharing your family get together, what a lovely house you rented. I'm sure you all enjoyed your stay. Our family have also done this, and are talking about a summer holiday together.

  9. Oh my what a gorgeous house. All the rooms' decor is lovely. I could quite happily live in the carriage house. Love the third floor; the children's stove, sink and fridge are adorable. What a lovely idea to rent the house and enjoy it with your family as an annual holiday.

  10. Hello, what a beautiful house. Both inside and outside are lovely. I love how all the rooms are decorated, very pretty. I know you and your family had a fun time enjoying this beach house. Wonderful collection of photos. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

  11. What an incredible place to vacation. Loved all your photos. I like how they offer the extra towels folded and arranged like a pillow. Great idea for a guest room.
    The house is gorgeous, nicely decorated and looks so comfy. I can see that you and your family had a great time here. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day! xo

  13. Hi Karen, happy belated birthday. It looks like you had a wonderful time with your dear family. I so enjoyed seeing the pictures of Seabrook; I can pictures the sound of the rain gently falling and the wonderful scent of the trees. It's really heaven on earth! I hope you are having a wonderful fall season. We're suppose to get some rain in our dry, drought stricken California. I can hardly wait since I LOVE rain! My best to you. Hugs, Pat xx

  14. It really is a beautiful cottage Karen. I would so enjoy staying at a place like that with a group of friends or family. Looking forward to your beach post next. :) Have a great day!

  15. I am so glad you all were able to do this. The cottage is wonderful. Bring on the beach post ~ FlowerLady

  16. I wonder if the actual owner decorated or if they hired someone to do so? Very nicely done.

    1. Hi Rose - thanks for stopping by :) You know, we were wondering the same thing.....My daughter's recognized most of the furnishings and decorations from the Pottery Barn catalog, so possibly the company has a service, or they could have just done it themselves with a few clicks! Sometimes I would just love to do the same thing.....When I win the lottery! xo Karen

  17. Everything really was so beautifully done wasn't it! Just perfect for the style of house and the location too. I can see why you enjoyed it so much! xx

  18. I keep falling more and more in love with this place. Everything was thought out so well and done beautifully! And then to be in such a lovely location. Just perfect! Definitely a great idea to have it be an annual event. ;)

  19. Dearest Karen,
    The idea for making this into an annual event sounds wonderful and as grandchild(ren) grow up, this still is a great place with room for all.
    It is such a lovely setting, too bad you had rain and could not use the fire wood... Kind gesture for leaving it for the next people.
    May the fond and warm memories spent as a family stay with you for a long time!
    Sending you hugs,

  20. really neat place and beautifully decorated. loved all the sea touches - the whale in the garden area. :)

  21. I love this place, Karen, and I can see why you want to head back for an annual visit. Those "pillows" are a great idea and I so loved the red kitchen! Thanks for sharing your fun birthday with us. xo

  22. such a sweet place, i really LOVE the way it is decorated!!!!

    and a great idea to include the entire family, my favorite thing was all the board games. i love to get together with my family and play board games!!!!

  23. What a beautiful place to spend time with family. I enjoyed seeing the lovely decorations in each room.

  24. Wow that looks fantastic, I have often wanted to go in with my family and get a cabin in the smokey mountains, I am going to suggest that for our next family reunion, it's great they also have children friendly area's!

  25. Hi Karen,
    Sorry it's been a while since my last visit. I have been so busy.
    What a beautiful house to rent. I love the decor. I'm looking forward to the next post.
    Enjoy the rest of the week.

  26. Those beach houses look beautiful Karen! Love the one you stayed in. It looks very homely, which is not always the case in a holiday home.

    Have a lovely weekend ahead!

  27. Wow! I have never seen a rental home decorated so beautifully! One of my dreams is to make it to the west coast some day. This place looks dreamy and just how I envision the towns along the coast.


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments are important to me and are very much appreciated. xx Karen
