Plan a fun-filled getaway to the family and dog friendly oceanside town of Gleneden Beach with a stay at this laid-back charmer of a three-bedroom vacation townhouse. Decorated in an artistic and playful style, this Beachwood retreat is nestled in a woodsy setting on a quiet dead-end street, with just one block to beach access!
Just two steps up, and you'll enter a spacious floor plan with the living room, dining room, and kitchen all open, so conversations can easily be carried on while making meals, watching TV, or just sitting around the coffee table planning the day's events. In the living room, besides the tall ceilings (thanks to... the loft upstairs), you'll find comfortable leather sofas, as well as a flat screen TV with cable and a DVD player for watching movies and your favorite TV shows.
During winter storms, get some firewood for a roaring fire, or just light the candles near the fireplace for ambiance as you stay nice and cozy, while listening to the rain outside. And when it's time to prepare a meal, you'll find everything you need in the fully-sticked kitchen. From grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch to a fancy grilled salmon dinner or even a holiday feast with all the trimmings - this kitchen is the place to make it happen. And after you're done breaking bread and discussing the day, a dishwasher makes clean-up easy as pie.
There's also a deck on this level with a gas grill, hummingbird feeder, and nice views of the forested landscape. Perfect for grilling up steaks after a long day frolicking on the shore!
On the lower level, there are also two bedrooms - one has a set of bunk beds that are just perfect for the kids, the other has a queen sized bed. Flanked by pebbled glass windows, this bed also has a wonderfully ornate wood frame and other room amenities include a TV and private deck access. There is also a full bathroom in the hall as well, making this room a great choice for grandparents or any guests with mobility issues that may make stairs an issue.
When you do head upstairs, you (and your younger guests) will be delighted to find a loft bedroom complete with a full size bed and frame in the shape of a boat! Another great sleeping choice for the kids, the loft also has a view of the open living room from behind an iron railing. In addition, the second floor also contains another bedroom with a comfortable queen bed and lots of closet space. Just down the hall is a a full bathroom with a shower and skylight. This home will accommodate up to seven guests, as well as your furry dog family members for a $10 per day, per pet fee ($40 minimum per stay).
Other indoor amenities include a washer and dryer for guest use, stereo, sound dock, and a CD player. For a day at the beach, there are surf boards to borrow or just grab an armful of sand toys from the deck and follow the stone-lined path to a tree-lined trail and access the beach just one block away.
Here you'll be able to comb the beach for additions to your shell collection, build sand castles, fly kites, or just relax on the sand with a good beach book. You'll want to bring your bikes and ride around this scenic and cycle-friendly neighborhood.
For golfers, Salishan Golf and Spa Resort is only a mile away and offers 18 holes of golf, a beautiful, relaxing spa, and several shops and dining options.
On afternoons or evenings you don't feel like cooking, you're only a five minute walk from the Side Door Cafe. That space also houses Eden Hall - a small music and theatrical venue, so if you're lucky, you may be able to catch a show after a delicious dinner out.
This home is well-located for day trips. Lincoln City, with its glass galleries, restaurants, outlet mall and Chinook Wind's Casino is only seven miles to the north, and an excursion to Newport for a fun day at the Oregon Coast Aquarium is only a 30 minute drive to the south.
For winter or summer getaways to the Oregon coast, this Gleneden Beach charmer makes an excellent home base to explore, play, and relax.
