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

Amazing Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We love when we can stay at the Applegate Cottage. It's perfect for us when we are in town visiting our son at OSU. We love that it has the kitchen with stove and oven and a BBQ. This comes in handy when we are in town and I can cook my son and his friends dinner! Can't wait for our next stay!

A Sweet Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Applegate Cottage is very pleasant and comfortable, and had everything needed for a multi-night stay. It is furnished thoughtfully and thoroughly. The private covered decks and backyard were an extra bonus. The location is in quiet neighborhood yet with easy access to the highway and walking distance to local restaurants. Monica is a delightful host.

Just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought our daughter to an OSU preview day and stayed (with our sweet dog) at this lovely cottage. It was perfect open and airy, back yard to let the dog out, good neighborhood for walking the dog. In fact the we loved it so much that the second night we canceled our dinner out and grabbed a few take and bake pizzas and stayed home, had a lovely dinner, played pool and then walked the dog.

  • 5 of 5

Very warm and friendly. Nicely equipped for the average traveler. I am an avid cook so I missed having mixing and baking equipment, but it was a great little house and very pet friendly. Thank you Monica for sharing your cottage with us.
