We had relatives visiting from back east so we decided to show them the Pacific Ocean and Long Beach. We've stayed in Long Beach many times, but this was our first visit at The Anchorage Cottages. We stayed for two nights in Cottage #7. It was a very decent cottage. It had two bedrooms and a futon for our five adults. The beds were very comfortable.
It was clean, quiet and comfortable, even though a bit outdated; but a nice beach cottage. It had a full kitchen with all the necessary pots, pan, silverware, plates, bowls, etc. A couple of the knobs on the electric range were a bit of a challenge for trying to obtain the proper burner temperature.
The path to the beach was mosquito-challenged; you had to keep moving or you didn't stand a chance (we didn't have any bug dope with us). They advertise the path to the beach as being 1/4 mile long, but it's closer to 0.4 miles by my measurement. It accesses a very little used portion of the beach.
The staff was helpful and check-in/out was quick and easy. The flower beds and window boxes on the property are outstanding; chock full of beautiful flowering plants. Each cabin has its own assigned parking space which I very much appreciated.
The cottages are just a short distance off the main highway going north out of Long Beach, but finding the correct turnoff to get to it is a bit of a pain. There is a sign, but it is not right on the main road and not really that easy to spot. It would be useful to have a good sign right along the main road to help you know where to turn into the property.
