Just one mile from Port Orford, the 540-square-foot Muse Guest House sits surrounded by coastal forest near two other homes, though clever design prevents them from being visible from anywhere in the house.

Planted 200 feet above the ocean, Port Orford's Muse Guest House offers one of the best perspectives on the Oregon coast you can get without climbing into a helicopter. Built by musician-turned-designer Gary Robertson, the guesthouse—which just opened last summer—boasts 40 breath-stealing miles of beach spread out below your wind-protected patio and glass-walled living room. And at $175 a night, it's a bargain view, too. (So long as you stay for a few days since they cleaning fee is another $100.)
