Corvallis vacation rentals

Have a true taste of Oregon in Corvallis

It may not be as well known as the hip haven of Portland to the north of the county, but Corvallis is a hidden gem of Oregon which provides a true taste of the region. Quite literally, if you visit one of the many winery tasting rooms around Corvallis, where you can sip on some of the famous Oregon Pinot noir. The city, which is home to Oregon State University and its student population, has a buzzing nightlife, while the many public parks – almost 50 in all – make it an idyllic area to wander on sunny afternoons. Corvallis vacation rentals will make you feel right at home, whether you opt for a swanky studio apartment or a large, log-built home on the banks of the Willamette River.

Outdoor adventures in Corvallis

Anyone with an interest in wine will be in heaven here. Just a short drive from Corvallis vacation rentals, you’ll discover the rolling vineyards of Oregon’s wine country, fertile and green and ripe with promise. You can try their local wine in the rustic tasting rooms, before having a picnic close to the vines, while gazing out at the lush landscape. Yet more relaxation can be had at Riverfront Commemorative Park, an oasis in the heart of the city, with views of the Willamette and ornamental trees to recline under. Don’t nod off for too long, though – you can also head onto the river itself on a kayak. You can even go on an evening stargazing tour down the waterway.

Art and history in Corvallis

Culture-seekers should have the Arts Center on their to-see list – it hosts an ever-changing array of exhibitions, showcasing Oregon artworks, sculptures, talks, and more. Some of its shows have achieved national prominence, and it’s well worth checking the events calendar to see what’s on. Meanwhile, a short drive outside of Corvallis itself, you’ll find the Benton County Historical Society Museum, which also displays local art, as well as vintage fashion, and fascinating insights into the area’s heritage.

Sunny escapades in Corvallis

Its geographical position means Corvallis enjoys fairly mild weather all year round. If you had to pick just one season to book your Corvallis vacation rental, it should probably be summer. It gets very warm, but not uncomfortably hot, and this is the perfect time to venture out into the parks, visit vineyards, and take in the local forests. Of course, spring and fall work well too, while even the coldest months can be a pleasure for wildlife watchers, thanks to the flocks of wintering birds which swoop into the region.

Forests and wildlife in Corvallis

Corvallis is nestled within the Willamette Valley, and garlanded with swathes of natural beauty. To the north is the McDonald-Dunn Forest, which features more than 11,000 acres of forested land. Despite its size, it’s a bit of a hidden gem, making it a wonderfully quiet and serene place to hike or bike through. Meanwhile, to the south of Corvallis, you’ll find the William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge, where you can explore habitats from wetlands to prairie. It’s home to rare plant life, birds, and languid herds of Roosevelt elk.
