The name Perpetua was introduced to the Yachats area after Captain Cook visited and named the cape that is just three miles south of Yachats. Captain Cook was the first to receive credit for being in the Yachats area, although he was unable to land due to the rocky shore. On March 7, 1787 he purportedly named the 800-foot high cape after Saint Perpetua, whose birthday fell on that date.
Perpetua Cottage includes a beautiful view of the ocean and native foliage from the back deck, living room and the upstairs master bedroom. Unwind by the stone fireplace after a day spent at the ocean or curl up in the secluded window seat in the master bedroom and watch the sun set.
