About the property

Cottage, Studio with Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 2 adults, 2 kids)

This is a place inviting you to feel at home. Applegate Guest Cottage is spacious and tastefully decorated. It comfortably sleeps two adults (queen bed) and up to two children (double bed in a small loft reached with a ladder).

On warm days, you can lounge in the shade of the flower-surrounded back porch. On rainy days, you can choose from a large selection of books and games, play pool, or watch TV/movies.

The cottage is close to a bike path and on the Corvallis bus route. It is within walking distance of coffee shop, doughnut shop, financial institutions, post office, library, quilt shop, restaurants, wine tasting, and more.

Corvallis, home of Oregon State University, is located just 10 minutes away and offers a friendly home-town atmosphere with a variety of stores, river front restaurants, and a wonderful farmers market (Apr-Nov) with fresh local produce, fruits, flowers, honey, jams, and more.

The magnificent Oregon Coast is merely 40 miles west. There you will find a variety of things to do including crabbing, whale watching, deep sea fishing, walking on the beach, and visiting the Newport Aquarium.

Numerous hiking trails are 10-30 minutes away at Mary’s Peak, Bald Hill Park, and McDonald Forest.

And, if you like birding, the Willamette Valley is the place to be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When we told our friends we'd be honeymooning in Philomath, we got silence & surprised reactions. "Near is the new far," we told them - and what a time it's been! We biked along the Willamette, strolled through Saturday market, paved through used bookstores, poked around in historic buildings & lingered over great meals. It''s been a wonderful 5 days and we don't want to go home. But it wouldn't have been as pleasent a visit if it weren't for the granny flat & your hospitality. A fresh pie and our favorite wine awaited us & a cozy bed. If we could we'd like to take mandi (your dog)back with uus too. Thank you so much for all the little touches & attention to detail ( not to mmention the chocolate). You have a great thing going here & we look forward to returning.

With gratitude

Ideal home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was the perfect place for us while visiting OSU for the weekend! Not far from campus, equipped with all of the essentials, it was clean, tidy, and quite spacious. The two love seats were very comfortable, even for my 6'3" husband. The only reason we didn't give a five-star rating was the bed. We are used to a king, so the queen was smaller than we preferred, and far too soft. Fortunately, one of us could sleep up in the loft! We would definitely stay there again, however, ideally when the weather is nice in order to enjoy the cute little courtyard in the back! The hosts were very responsive to inquiries, which we appreciated too.

My family rented this cottage for the weekend. We went to see my daughter at OSU. This cottage was the perfect rental (so much better than a hotel). The cottage is well equipped with all the necessities. I was able to cook homemade dinners for my daughter. Owners where very helpful and always ready to help out. I recommend this rental property.

Cute, clean and convenient little cottage

  • 5 of 5

I always stay here when it is available, but you have to reserve it ahead of time because it is such a popular little cottage! I recommend it to anyone who wants a nice place to stay in the Corvallis area with a short drive through the Coastal Range to the Oregon Coast. The cottage is clean with everything you need to make your stay feel like home, you even have your own private backyard! I love this little cottage!
