Overview

Astoria House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, sleeps 6-8

We don’t want to brag but, this house really does have it all! Directly up the hill from Downtown Astoria, the location is absolutely the best! You can literally see the Columbia River from every room in the house except the one upstairs bathroom that doesn’t have a window! Still, you are close enough to easily walk downtown to one of the many shops, restaurants or brew pubs and in the summer you can walk to the Sunday Market. The main floor features a fully furnished modern kitchen with granite counters, stainless appliances, coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster, blender and microwave. There is also a family room with a picture window that just begs you to relax on the leather loveseat with a cup of tea to watch the river traffic. Adjacent to that is the dining room with a table that seats 6-8 as well as a living room with a full size sleeper sofa, recliner and a 40” LED TV and a stereo. Rounding out the main floor is a small study area and a half bath. All three bedrooms are located upstairs as is a full bath with a bathtub/shower combo. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other is furnished with two twin beds. The master bedroom is furnished with a queen bed and has a walk in closet and en suite bathroom. There are decks providing access to the backyard on both levels. The secluded backyard features tall trees, lots of native greenery and appears to be the permanent grazing grounds for a small herd of deer.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Pamela Ordway

We are full time residents of Portland and make frequent trips to the coast.

Pamela Ordway purchased this house in 2012

Why Pamela Ordway chose Astoria

We enjoyed Astoria so much over the last 15 years that we just had to have a house there. We looked for a house for 4 years before finding this one which was perfect for us and has a nice view. We believe others will appreciate it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

When we first saw this house, we knew it was the one because it had the best of both worlds; the proximity to town that would make it easy to enjoy all the wonderful activities available but still far enough up the hill to provide a jaw dropping view of the Columbia. We figured the resident deer in the backyard were just an added bonus!

Great house

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic month’s stay at this very special house. You can feel the welcoming warmth as soon as you walk in or maybe it was just the baguette and bottle of wine that greeted us!
There was no stinginess in supplies - plenty of paper and cleaning products and things such as decent silverware and glassware. The kitchen was filled with modern appliances and gleaming counter tops.
We felt like we were at home with the large comfortable couch in front of the TV and the modern kitchen. And, of course, best of all was the couch and chairs in front of the big window so we could watch the ships go up and down the river. We also loved to just watch the kids playing in the church park across the street.
We enjoyed driving to the beach and all the near by points of interest. It was so great to be able to just walk downtown and to the river front in just a few minutes.
We also enjoyed sampling most of the near by breweries. I loved the Sunday street market (again within walking distance).
I do not think you can find a better or more reasonably priced place to say in Astoria. I hesitate to say this because we most likely will want to go back next summer. Please save us a month!

Even better than it looks online!!

  • 5 of 5
As wonderful as this home looks in the online description, it is even more amazing to stay in. But if you want to be one of the lucky joyful few, plan ahead and act fast! While there in July, 2014, we asked to reserve for July 2015, but it was already gone. We like it so much that we changed our vacation plans next summer to match the availability of this spectacular place.

This rental has been remodeled and redecorated lovingly and skillfully by the owners as their own eventual home. The high-end appliances, natural flooring, great countertops, and comfortable furniture far exceed other places we have stayed using VRBO. And the location is perfect! Far enough above the Columbia to stay peaceful but close enough to catch the action (especially with binoculars): freighters going both directions, eagles soaring above, and various craft moving along the river. Clatsop Community College is just a block away (straight up!), and a good source of informative programs and classes. It's an easy walk into town (4 to 5 blocks) to get a paper, a beer, or a cup of coffee. Not so easy climbing back up, but it justifies that roll with coffee. The grocery co-op is also walking distance with great produce and deli lunches. The other direction from town is Peter Pan, which has dangerously delicious desserts plus good deli lunches. It is within walking distance, but has lots of ups and downs. Any morning I walked that direction for a paper, I shared the streets with deer, which was very motivating. And, if you are 55+, the Senior Center is an outstanding resource. They have exercise classes, line dancing, and lots of gracious welcoming people.

The owners are wonderful, welcomed us with lots of surprise extras, and were instantly available by email or phone to answer questions.

The deer visited the back yard regularly, and two does had fawns for us to watch and try to photograph.

I guess the only not 100% positive comment might be a caution regarding the architecturally splendid spiral staircase. While quite stunning, it can be a bit tricky to maneuver, and not for the very young or very old. But, there is an outside set of stairs that can be used as an option.

In summary, this is a great find, and offers outstanding value for the rental rate. We already tried to rebook for 2016, but need to wait to see if it is still available then.

Astoria is the oldest town west of the Rocky Mountains, founded in 1811. It has a rich history to be seen in many museums and the town itself. We recommend the Maritime Museum, and Flavel House Museum for starters. The town has a River Walk extending from the West Mooring Basin, just west of the bridge, 4 miles east to Pier 39 with many things to see along the riverfront. A restored 1913 trolley car ride along the waterfront is a nice experience which includes a history lesson provided by the driver. Astoria has several brew pubs, the closest one is Ft. George Brewing which is an easy walk from the house. Many nice restaurants are in town, also within walking distance. Baked Alaska, Clemente's, and Fulios are some of our favorites but there are many more to choose from. Several good coffee shops are around town. Salmon and Sturgeon fishing charters are available in the nearby marina (about 1 mile west). The beach at Ft. Stevens State Park is about a 15 minute drive. Safeway and Fred Meyer grocery stores are close. The location is centrally located just up the hill from downtown Astoria and it is relatively private and quiet. It makes for a nice relaxing atmosphere with a good view of the river.
