We are Ryan and Sara Klobas. We have two boys, Preston (9) and Vance (6). Both of us are native Oregonians and grew up walking the sands and playing in the great waters of the Oregon Coast. Our parents moved here in the 60's and settled in to have a family. We now reside in NE Portland and LOVE Oregon!!

Sara Klobas purchased this cottage in 2006

We found this little pink cottage through our sister in law, who lives in Cape Meares full time. We put the word out that we were looking, and after about a year, this little gem popped up as a potential purchase. We spoke to the owner several times and soon shook hands and made a deal. Since then, we have made this place our home away from home.

There is so much to love about Cape Meares. The 4 miles of uncrowded beach, the drive up the bay, the birds singing as you walk past the lake on the way to the beach, the friendly neighbors, the bright beautiful stars on a clear nite, riding bikes on the spit and beyond, the tidepools if you're there when the tide is LOW, the deck, the wood stove, the great meals on the BBQ, walking forever on the beach or picking blackberries late in Summer. It's just a great place to get away from the craziness of being home.

IT WAS JUST WHAT WE WANTED...

  • 5 of 5
We are very happy with our stay at The Peptide. The house was just as they represented in the ad and it had everything we needed. Check-in process was easy and in the end our deposit was returned timely. The location was quiet and private but also central and close to the attractions when we wanted to go that route. The beach down the street was wonderful for exploring, easy for our 4-year old to maneuver too and not crowded. People had previously commented on a slight musty smell so I was nervous about cleanliness but that was not an issue. The cabin was clean and tidy and just smelled like a seaside cabin typically does. Furniture was clean and linens/towels noticeably clean and of good quality. In a perfect world we would have enjoyed a screen on the front storm door or windows to allow for fresh airflow throughout but the kitchen and bedroom windows had screens and pulled fresh air through well enough so we have no complaints. It took my daughter a day to quit commenting on it but the yummy smell from the home cooked dinner did the trick. The only thing that could have made this the perfect ocean rental for us is if we didn't have to take our trash out with us at the end of the stay. In the future we would consider paying extra to have trash service since that was a bit of a nuisance but the overall price for this space made it worth our while. We would without a doubt return to this house and have already recommended it to our friends and family.

This is our second trip to the Peptide House and we loved our second experience as much as the first. The house is very charming and comfortable with a great living room gathering space with views of the water. The deck is a great place to hang out on a sunny afternoon. Cape Meares is a hidden gem with access to hiking trails and a long stretch of beach without many people. We love this location!

VERY PEACEFUL.

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with the house. We stayed at the house over spring break and during our vacation we did a lot of driving and sightseeing up and down the coast in both directions with the Peptide being our home for that time. With it being spring break week, a lot of the other beaches were very crowded but not the beach at Cape Mears, it was always very quiet and peaceful. The tide pools were fascinating with more starfish than we have ever seen and with less people, you have a really good chance of finding all kinds of treasures.
The house was supplied with everything that we needed and had a very comfortable feel. Sara was always quick to respond with whatever questions or concerns that we had.
We had a very nice time and if we are ever back to that part of Oregon, we would definitely stay again.

PERFECT FOR OUR FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
We just got home from our stay at The Peptide. We were sad to leave this house. It was the perfect size for our family of four. It was cute and simple, clean and quiet. The beds were very welcoming and comfortable. We enjoyed playing games at the dining room table and spent time relaxing in the living room. The beach access is very close (3 blocks) and we found it to be a quiet beach that was not crowded at all. We have already recommended this home to our friends. Thank you for sharing your home!

ABSOLUTELY CHARMING

  • 5 of 5
The Peptide has everything you could possibly want for a great vacation. Extremely well equipped. Coffee drip, french press and even a stove-top expresso. Who could ask for more? Lots of books, games, movies. Comfortable bed with soft sheets and pillows. Good water pressure for showers. Short walk to the beach. 10 miles to the Safeway in Tillamook for supplies. It's not the Hilton or for someone who wants glitz and glamor but if you want clean, quite and charming . . . . it is perfection. I would definitely go back and I'm going to recommend it to all of my friends.

Map

The Peptide is located in Cape Meares. Cape Meares is one of the 3 capes on the Scenic Route on the Oregon coast and sits on the south end of the Tillamook Bay. There are 4 miles of uncrowded beach to enjoy as you stroll, play or relax on on the shore. Fishing, biking, kayaking, canoeing, birdwatching and hiking are just some of the great activities to do while visiting CM and if you would like to venture into town, you may like to visit the Tillamook Cheese Factory, the Air Museum, the Blue Heron Cheese Factory and take a train ride on a Steam Engine from Garibaldi to Rockaway and back.

There are many species of birds who make Cape Meares and the Bay their home. Blue Herons are a common site, as well as Bald Eagles, Osprey and smaller birds such as Red Winged Black Birds. There have been sightings of deer, elk, porcupine, beaver, bear and more.

Cape Meares is a wooded area. There are no stores, restaurants or gas stations. It is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. So if you are looking for a small town feel, come here and experience Cape Meares at the Peptide!
