In addition to classic curb appeal, you'll be just as impressed as you step up to the front porch and inside. Featuring a split level floor plan, the kitchen, living room, and dining room are on the main floor, with bedrooms and a large play room / family room with sleeper sofas downstairs.
The spacious living room is bright and open with comfortable furniture and a gas fireplace for extra coziness on those chilly coast evenings. A 50 inch flat screen TV features HDTV with DVR. Visit Universal Video in Seaside or pack your favorite DVD to pop in the player for movie night. There's even a collection of discs to pick from. All you'll need to do is pop the popcorn!
The dining room table seats eight, with access to the outdoor deck through sliding glass doors right nearby. Out there you'll find another table for dining, socializing, or just relaxing with your morning coffee. There's also a gas grill stored in the garage for cookouts on nice days.
The kitchen boasts beautiful countertops, with lots of space for meal preparation. Start the morning with some buckwheat and berry pancakes or end the day with a roast chicken. There's even a coffee grinder for freshly ground beans and a dishwasher to make the cleanup for all your culinary projects quick and easy.
A flight of stairs takes you to the home's three bedrooms, all with queen beds and comfortable bedding. A full bathroom has a jetted tub and is easily shared between two of the bedrooms. The master bedroom has its own bathroom with shower. In that bedroom, there's also a futon for relaxing during the day, or for small children to sleep in the same room with their parents at night.
This home will comfortably sleep 12 guests. Additional amenities include a stereo and cd player, as well as a crib, high chair, and pack n' play for younger guests. There's also a separate laundry room with a sink, in case your beachwear gets a little sandy as you explore the area.
One flight of stairs down from the living area will take you to a comfortable play room / family room. Play board games, watch DVDs on the flat screen TV, or hang out and socialize in this large space. You can even let the kids take over this room while the adults hang out and have fun upstairs. In the garage, you'll find a ping pong table for for even more entertainment options on rainy days.
In the backyard, there's a fire pit for roasting marshmallows, making s'mores, or just telling ghost stories late into the night - all while you listen to the sounds of the waves nearby. While sitting out in the tree-lined yard, you may even spot deer and elk out foraging for food. The home is short walk to the Sunset Beach State Recreation Park. From here, visitors have direct access to the Pacific Ocean with expansive, picturesque views all the way from Cape Disappointment in Washington to the north and Ecola State Park in Cannon Beach to the south.
History buffs will appreciate Sunset Beach's trailhead access to the historic Fort-to-Sea Trail. This is a six and a half mile route that recreates the experience Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery encountered as they traveled between Fort Clatsop and the Pacific Ocean during the winter of 1805-6.
On days when you've had your fill of beach combing, kite flying, or historic Lewis & Clark trail re-enactments, make the short 10 mile drive to Astoria for a day of gallery browsing, a visit to the Columbia River Maritime Museum, lunch at Fort George Brewery, and maybe even a quick drive across the mint green colored Astoria-Megler Bridge to Washington state. At 4.1 miles long, it's the the longest continuous truss bridge in North America.
No matter if you spend your vacation huddled around the firepit on cool, crisp evenings, walking the beach looking for shells, or walking along the Astoria Riverwalk trail, you'll certainly find this Warrenton vacation rental one of the highlights of your trip!
