A tranquil, rejuvenating getaway awaits at this beautifully restored four-bedroom Waldport vacation rental. Perfect for large groups of up to 12 guests, it offers a cozy fireplace, lovely bay views, and plenty of modern conveniences to make your stay comfortable. And the family dog can come along, too!
Residing in a quaint neighborhood on the banks of the Alsea River, this home is conveniently situated near both coastal and city attractions. Just a short walk north, the Alsea Bay Bridge Interpretative Center is a great place to bone up on the area’s history, or you could get your shopping fix along Highway 101, and there’s even crabbing and a boat launch at the Port of Alsea docks (about a mile northeast).
Full of rustic character with knotty pine floors and walls, built-ins, and vintage decor, this home is an adorable coastal retreat. Though the house is almost a century old, it's been lovingly restored and is packed with vintage charm.
Pick out a book from the living room’s library and settle into either of two cloth couches for a quiet afternoon of reading. Flip on the flatscreen TV and you could catch up on a favorite cable series, or watch a movie thanks to the DVD player. If it’s chilly outside, quickly warm the room with the wood-burning fireplace.
When your group gets hungry, head into the kitchen to whip up a homemade meal. Use ample countertops, modern appliances, and a variety of cookware to quickly and easily serve up fresh dishes. And when the meal is ready, eat together at the six-chair dining table in the spacious dining area. For smaller gatherings or overflow seating, use the four-seat table in the breakfast room, which is next to the kitchen.
Is the forecast calling for sunny skies and warm temperatures during your stay? Have a barbecue! Use the home’s gas grill to cook shrimp kabobs, tuna steaks, or any other delicious dishes made from local ingredients, and enjoy lovely bay views when dining al fresco.
Afterwards, head outdoors to play catch in the large yard, or take a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood. Lace up your running shoes and you could take a refreshing jog along the Alsea River where you’re sure to catch glimpses of coastal wildlife, including otters, herons, seagulls, deer, and bald eagles.
Come home at the end of an activity-filled day, ready for restful slumber. Up to 12 guests are accommodated in four bedrooms, as well as your beloved family dog - for a small nightly fee. The first bedroom, downstairs, has a twin daybed, and there's also a futon on this level. Upstairs are three more bedrooms, two with a queen bed each and one with two full beds - and there are also two twin-size rollaway beds that will be perfect for the kids. Cozy and charming with vintage dressers, cloth chairs, curtained picture windows, and sloped ceilings, the bedrooms are peaceful places guaranteed to deliver a great night’s sleep, night after night.
Wake up refreshed and ready for a new day of adventures. Brew a pot of coffee and start the day with a refreshing stroll down the beach, beginning at Governor Patterson Memorial State Recreation Site (about one and a half miles south). Explore tide pools and uncover treasures brought in with the surf. There’s even a picnic area, so don’t forget to pack a lunch for a festive beachside picnic. If you’re in the mood for a scenic day hike, check out the Woodlands Trail, a wood-chip hiking path that winds through town.
Ready for a fun day trip? Pack your group in the car and drive 15 miles north to Newport where you’ll find a variety of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. If you’ve brought kids, treat them to an exciting day of family-friendly fun featuring playful penguins, curious otters, and many more coastal creatures on display at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. Older tastes are well rewarded with a visit to the Rogue Brewery for local beer sampling, and the whole group will love reeling in salmon on a local fishing charter.
Inviting, cozy, and comfortable, this Central Oregon Coast vacation rental will set the stage for an unforgettable trip to Waldport. Book the Alsea Bridge Bay View today and plan for big adventures in a small town atmosphere!
