"Greetings from the Owners!"

Thank you for considering our "Painted Lady" for your next get-a-way.  We are working very hard to make the house a wonderful place to stay.  There are some things we would like to bring to your attention.

Our home is suited to those who want quiet and peaceful surroundings.  The house is a beautiful place to relax after experiencing what Astoria and the surrounding areas have to offer.   The City of Astoria requires that any vacation rental must have a full-time resident on site.  The first floor of the house is a long-term rental.  This satisfies the requirement by the city.  Because this is a "shared" house we ask that you please observe the 10pm-8am quiet hours.  Please be respectful of the tenants below you and the neighbors as well.

If you do decide to "book" a stay we hope you have a wonderful time at our house!  Since we are constantly making improvements to the house, any suggestions to make it a better place to stay would be welcome.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Have the ultimate Oregon experience by staying at this delightful Astoria vacation rental unit in ‘The Astoria Painted Lady.’ Ideally situated atop a picturesque hill, overlooking the tranquil waters of the Columbia River, this lovely abode will serve as an idyllic home base for exploring the oldest settlement west of the Rocky Mountains!

The vacation rental unit is on the second floor with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and enough sleeping accommodations to comfortably sleep 6 guests throughout the beautifully appointed living space. This residence is ideal for families, couples or close friends looking for a peaceful Oregon getaway. As soon as you arrive at this magnificent victorian home, you’ll simply fall in love with its vibrant exterior, draped in spectacular yellows, purples and blues. Begin leisurely vacation days out on the spacious porch, languidly sipping your coffee while gently swaying back and forth in either of the quaint rocking chairs.

The interior is equally as charming, with massive picture windows allowing sunshine to stream in, casting an abundance of inviting natural light on the abode’s tastefully unique decor and comfortable furnishings. Everything you’ll need to be as relaxed as possible during your stay is here, including wireless internet access, central heating, a TV with DVD player and a wonderful selection of movies for you to choose from, sure to appease your entertainment needs.The dwelling’s cozy library will quickly become your favorite place to unwind after eventful vacation days. Kick back on the plush couch with a good page turner from the room’s well-stocked collection of books or pick out an exciting game to play with your companions before dinner.

When you’re not out enjoying the local cuisine, utilize the home’s gorgeous fully equipped kitchen, complete with all necessary cooking appliances. After cooking in the kitchen, gather around the adjacent wood dining table, with seating for 6 people, to savor your culinary masterpiece while gazing out at the dazzling Columbia River, where you’ll observe ships anchoring as they travel between Portland and the Pacific Ocean. Later, head out to the large side yard to play some yard games with the verdant forested hillside serving as a peaceful backdrop. When you’re finally ready to call it a night, retreat to either of the 2 beautifully ornate bedrooms, each of which have their own bathroom, to rest up for the next exciting vacation day!

You simply can’t beat this home’s phenomenal location, situated within a quiet neighborhood that’s laden with unmatched natural beauty. From here, you’ll be just a short distance from Astoria’s lovely riverwalk - a local favorite! This paved walkway along the Columbia River passes under the Astoria-Megler Bridge, past the sailors’ memorial and into downtown, giving you an all-encompassing look at the area. Once downtown, you can slip down small side streets leading you to wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries and shops - both antique and specialty. While meandering down the town’s riverwalk, you’ll also pass by the Columbia River Maritime Museum, several Coast Guard ships and the East Mooring Basin, where sea lions are constant sources of free entertainment!

If you’re looking for some fun in the sun, hop in your car and drive 20 minutes to the spectacular Pacific Ocean beaches - dipping your toes in the ocean and flying a kite are musts! About 30 minutes away, you’ll find the town of Seaside, where you can walk on the quaint boardwalk and visit the delightful aquarium. History buffs will love learning about the area’s fascinating past at Fort Clatsop State Park, where Lewis and Clark stayed from December of 1805 to March of 1806. Fort Stevens, located on the shores of the Pacific, also abounds with interesting history. Here, you can explore a bunker for a first-hand look at what soldiers experienced in the past.

If you cross the 4 mile Astoria-Megler bridge into Washington, you’ll find plenty of additional parks and forts near the Columbia River. Traveling east on the Washington side of the river will lead you to Cathlamet, where you can ride a ferry across the river and wind your way back to Astoria on the scenic Highway 30. Regardless of how you choose to spend your time here, this one-of-a-kind Astoria vacation rental home will serve as the perfect jumping-off point for exploring the historically rich surroundings!

First Impression: "WOW"!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were invited to join some friends and stay here with them. I had no idea of what to expect, just that it was a house in Astoria. When we arrived I was blown away at the beautiful house! The old Victorian style with the gorgeous colored details was just amazing! I was so excited because I've always wanted to stay in a house like this. We went in and I was impressed with the antique furniture and the old-fashioned décor. It had a breathtaking view from the kitchen window of the bay with the huge barges floating by. We could actually hear the sea lions barking!

That evening after we settled into our lovely room, we all piled in my car and went down for dinner at the Rogue Brewery on the waterfront. We had a delicious dinner and beer samples. My husband and our friends brought home some of the specialty beer that were sold there. We went back "home" and sat out on the spacious front porch and relaxed and visited. Later that evening we enjoyed watching movies on the dvd player in the living room. There were six of us staying that night, and there were plenty of places to sleep. They even had the softest, most plush robes I have ever felt for each of us in the closet! In the morning we prepared our own breakfast in the kitchen. I was impressed that they had everything we needed that we may have forgotten to bring to cook with. We had all slept well and were comfortable, warm and happy. I was surprised how quickly the house felt like "home"!

Truly, what more could we ask for? It was just fantastic and I would recommend The Astoria Painted Lady to anyone!

We Loved our stay at the Painted Lady!

  • 4 of 5

The Painted Lady is an amazing home with such character and beauty. The decorator’s choice for each room was delightful, comforting, and hospitable. The bedrooms were very cheerful and bright, and we loved that they both had their own bathrooms in them. The showers were wonderful, as the water pressure was amazing. There was also plenty of hot water for all to take morning showers with. The kitchen was bright with contemporary appliances mixed with just enough antiques to remind you that you were in a vintage home. But I must say, the view from the windows in the kitchen was astonishingly beautiful. I love that this house has both the historical aspect to it as well as modern charm.

This home was very clean, well-kept, and on a very quiet street. It had plenty of kitchen and bathroom supplies as needed. The bed linens and towels were all fresh and clean. The hide-a-bed was very comfortable, as my daughter indicated that she’s NEVER slept on a hide-a-bed that she’s liked before, so she was pleasantly surprised with this one.

This particular time of year the sea-lions were out in the bay/laying on the boat-docks. If you are an animal lover like us, we loved to hear the sea-lions converse amongst themselves as we sat on the front deck. You are close enough to the water that you can take a small drive to the boat docks and enjoy the sea-lions, birds, ducks, and even a dinner at the Rogue Brewery if you so desired to. The property owners have a three ring binder with all sorts of information on food, activities, and other interests that you can do while staying in Astoria. We found this very helpful in planning our daytime and evening events.

I will be highly recommending this place to our friends and family in hopes that they too can enjoy the Painted Lady and Astoria as much as we did this past weekend.

Painted Lady...House on the Hill

  • 4 of 5

Great view of the Columbia River from the kitchen. Very comfortable furnishings set in a quiet neighborhood. Nice, fairly well stocked kitchen but needs a few items - nothing large enough to boil a crab in let alone a pasta dinner for 6. WiFi, but TV only works for playing DVDs, which they have plenty to choose from. No instructions for TV use so wasted a bit of time there. Overall, a pleasant stay, but a little on the expensive side.

Perfect home base for your Astoria adventures!

  • 5 of 5

Great place for your stay! It's close enough to downtown to take full advantage but set apart up on the hill for some quiet relaxation with a great view! We'd stay again!

Great View and Proximity to Entertainment

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the Victorian style and comfortable stay. Everything was clean and as we expected when we arrived. Having entertaining things to do within such close proximity was a favorite. We took advantage of the riverfront walk and downtown shops. The kitchen/dining area was nice to sit and enjoy the ships and river views over a nice cup of coffee.

Make sure stairs are not a problem for you because there are plenty to navigate while coming and going. We, however, appreciated that being on the 2nd floor and on a hill is what gives it character and a great view. The 2 rooms worked well for 4 of us to sleep comfortably. Sleeping 6 required the living area hide-away bed to be used. It worked and was comfortable, but the 2 sleeping in that area did not get to sleep-in as much since they were in the main living area.

The Astoria area was a lot of fun. We actually were not quite able to visit all the different places we wanted. Another day would have been good. We stayed 2 nights, but 3 or 4 would have been better. The bridge, Fort Stevens, Lighthouse, zip-lining (south of town on Hwy 101), museums, art shops. We ate at the coolest place that had been converted from a warehouse into a restaurant.

We would like to go back an visit again!
