Gather the kids around the backyard fire pit for s'more roasting, or step onto the expansive deck with a glass of wine while you take in the ocean views. A short stroll leads you right to a long stretch of gorgeous sandy beach, or walk just five minutes in the opposite direction to the grocery store to pick up some fresh seafood for dinner. However you choose to spend your time together, your family will feel right at home in this charming two bedroom getaway!
The best views in the house are from the upper-level outdoor deck, complete with a picnic table and charcoal grill for summer barbecues. Even on rainy days, though, you can enjoy watching the storms roll in through the great room's wall of panoramic windows. The living area makes for a particularly cozy spot, with a cable TV and DVD player sitting before the comfy sleeper sofa, just waiting for movie nights. A telescope lets you keep a lookout for passing whales, and a nicely stocked shelf is full of books and board games (the wood-stove is currently for decoration only).
On the other side of the great room, a six-person table is perfectly arranged for waterfront dining! You'll find everything you need to prepare meals in the well-stocked kitchen, including plenty of small appliances, cooking utensils, dinnerware, pots and pans, and even a dishwasher for easy clean-up. There is also a full bath on this floor.
On the lower level are two bedrooms, a full bath, and a bonus sitting room. The master bedroom has a queen bed, and the second bedroom has a full-sized bed. Including the sleeper sofa upstairs, six guests can share the space very comfortably. The lower level's sitting room provides a bit of extra privacy for guests who might want to spread out and enjoy their own space away from the crowd. Out back is a large grassy yard, perfect for kids, and a built-in fire pit for roasting marshmallows and swapping ghost stories!
The house is ideally located in quiet Lincoln Beach, allowing you to walk everywhere you might wish to go! The beautiful sandy beach is less than two blocks from your front door. Heading south, you can explore tide pools full of starfish and anemones, and even walk to the hiking trails and birdwatching blinds at Fogarty Creek State Park. The local Thriftway is an excellent grocery store and sits near the charming Big Mountain Coffee, where you can surf the free WiFi as you sip on your latte.
If you want to drive to a bit more excitement, Gleneden Beach and its golf and spa at the Salishan Resort are just five minutes north; bustling Lincoln City is ten minutes further. To the south, Depoe Bay offers plenty of whale-watching, dining, and shopping. Newport is half an hour south, with its excellent aquarium, waterfront, and brewery. But at the end of the day, you get to return to your lovely Lincoln Beach getaway, with peace, quiet, and those beautiful ocean views.
