Philomath Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

This little cottage is a hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Applegate Cottage. The cottage was well equipped and truly was one of the cleanest places we've stayed. Monica and Austin were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. Summer in Oregon is spectacular and we loved having the windows open - the view out the kitchen window into the owner's garden was lovely. They were even kind enough to let us pick blueberries fresh from the bushes in their yard. It was a lovely way to start our mornings! We enjoyed time out on the back deck and found it an easy walk around town and a short drive into Corvallis. For us, family lived close by and it was fun to be able to walk down for a visit! The only drawback for us was that the bed was a too soft for my husband's back. (I thought it was perfect!!) Other than that, I would recommend this rental for anyone looking for a quiet getaway.

Our Cottage Stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this amazing cottage! We were in town for your son's orientation for a few days and thought we would rent the cottage instead of a hotel and what a great choice! We were able to cook when we needed and had all the items we needed to do so. The BBQ worked great and loved the pool table. The loft was awesome, our son was with us the last night of our stay and was comfortable up there! From the amenities to the fresh flowers made this feel like home! The cottage even had AC, coming from Northern Cal, this was a plus. It was a bit warmer than normal so we were able to enjoy the AC when needed. The cottage was about 10 minute drive from the school and super easy to get back and forth. The town had several stores for us to shop at which was very convenient. My husband and I are already planning our next trip so that we can stay at this wonderful cottage.

Thank you so much for having us! Hope to see you soon!

Great for 2 adults

  • 4 of 5

the cottage was exactly what we expected. they don't show any photos of the loft because it is so low ceiling that you would have to crawl into the space and there is no vent up there. It didn't matter to us as we didn't need it. Great place for 2 adults. Bed was comfortable, sitting area and large TV, kitchen with all the trimmings, a kitchen table and a pool table. The back porch/deck with chairs was really cute too. The inside and back are more impressive than the front. When you pull up the front all has burglar bars on it but one you get inside its a really nice place. We stayed there because all the hotels were full for college graduation. Its only 10 minutes from the college and the highway was never crowded. Yes I would stay there again and do recommend it.

Great cottage for a couple's get away

  • 4 of 5

Freshly done interior and private back yard/sitting area. Our mistake was to take another couple. The blow up wasn't completely functional. Overall it was a great place to visit.
