Tillamook Lodge Rental Photos and Description
Log Home Bed & Breakfast surrounded by nature and serenity! Delicious Meals!
Powder Creek Ranch is nestled in a valley that backs up to Mt. Hebo in the Coast Mountain range. It is fronted by the Nestucca River and is surrounded by pristeen forest. The Ranch is named for Powder Creek, a year round stream that runs the length of the ranch and empties into the Nestucca. It's a great creek to hike and swim. The Nestucca River is a class A fishing river known for it's salmon and steelhead. Hiking is easy on the Ranch or Niagra Creek Falls is a little more vigorous nearby hiking trail that offers many photo opportunities.
We have nurtured the deer since purchasing the ranch in 1974, so we are all 'friendly'. We feed the deer their breakfast in the back yard every morning and get to watch the changes they go through during the year. In the fall, the bucks spar with each other and court the does. In June, it's pure delight to watch as the does bring the new fawns into the yard to introduce them to us. There are two ponds in the front yard and we feed the wild ducks and geese which keeps them here year round. This is a wonderful place for kids to learn about nature firsthand.
We offer two full bedroom suites, each with a private bath.
The 'Eastlake' is 600 sqft on the main floor with a private entry and deck. The focus of the Eastlake is the beautiful quartz fireplace that adds a romantic ambience. There is a plush queen bed and a comfortable queen hide-a-bed, both with luxury linens that sleep four in the room. The bath has a large soaking tub and shower. A 36' HD TV, DVD player w/ movie library, wifi, small refrigerator, in room coffee, couch and recliner all make this your home away from home.
The 'Heritage' is 400 sqft on the second floor. Furnished with a comfy pillowtop king bed with luxury soft linens. There is a large private deck with views of the ponds and surrounding forest. Private bath with shower, TV, DVD player, peaceful reading area in a light, bright cheery room.
Don't worry about going hungry with us. We serve a hearty country style breakfast and will accomodate special dietary needs or restrictions.
Powder Creek Ranch is centrally located to the local beaches and the city of Tillamook. It's about 25 miles north to Tillamook which is where you'll find the famous Tillamook Cheese Factory where you can watch the process of cheese making and have a hand scooped ice creamcone. Visit the Tillamook Air Museum located in a building built during world war II to house derigibles. It is the largest wooden structure in the world and quite amazing! Or...about 23 miles south to Pacific City with quaint shops and Cape Kiwanda where Haystack Rock is the back drop for gorgeous sunsets at the beach.

About Brenda or Beverly
The innkeepers are three generations of ladies, Beverly, Brenda and Hillary who live together at the Ranch. Beverly has lived at the Ranch since 1983. She and Brenda started a dairy here in 1986 and operated until '96. Bev is now retired after a life in a variety of self-employed business' and has an entrepreneurial spirit which was conveyed to Brenda while growing up in the restaurant business. With a love of cooking and entertaining, Brenda has dreamed about having a bed and breakfast business for 20 years. Hillary is the guardian of the wildlife and livestock at the Ranch. The other members of the family are Lily, Mickey and Henry, our pets.
The Ranch has been in our family since 1974 when Bev's parents purchased it. They started feeding the deer apples and grain to entice them to stay close by. Since then, the deer have been hosts to countless friends and family who have a love of nature and peace & quiet.
Brenda or Beverly purchased this lodge in 2010
Why Brenda or Beverly chose Tillamook
We started building this beautiful log home in 2004 and moved in in April 2006 with the intent of living here forever. It's such a unique and special property that we decided to share it with others, continuing the tradition that began in 1974.
What makes this lodge unique
Peace and quiet are what we love about the Ranch. Waking up every day to nature in all it's glory with our wildlife friends.
