"Greetings from the Owners!"
Thank you for considering our "Painted Lady" for your next getaway. 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.

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.

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 a comprehensive 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!

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.

The Painted Lady needs a face lift
First the ok - the property was in a quiet neighborhood with great views from the kitchen. The coffee and tea supplies were abundant. There were lots of towels, bedding and the beds were comfortable. Now the not so good - when we arrived, the ensuite bathroom in one of the bedrooms had no functioning tub/shower and we were not advised of this prior to our arrival which we would have liked to have known about. The place needs a good, thorough deep cleaning. We wouldn't stay here again.
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that your stay didn't entirely meet your expectations. We here at Evolve, the homeowners, and their housekeeping crew take your feedback very seriously. We all work very hard at providing the best possible vacation experience. Every effort is made to provide accurate and thorough information in the listing. It does state that currently there are 2.5 baths. The housekeepers take great pride in making sure that the house has a high standard of cleanliness for all guests. They will be working even harder to insure the standards are met. We appreciate your feedback and hope all future travelers thoroughly enjoy their stay at The Astoria Painted Lady.
Best, The Evolve Team
We really enjoyed our home away from home here at the Painted Lady. It was generously spacious, the kitchen well equipped...perfect for a rain soaked holiday. Our only quibble came from our geriatric dogs- the stairs are quite steep. Thank goodness for sturdy hand rails!
Amazing view. That's what sound us on the house.
The view was beautiful in a quiet neighborhood. If you have problems going up stairways this house isn't for you. The beds were hard but the house felt very homey. The kitchen is fantastic with a great view. Plan on having coffee and breakfast there! The owners were very gracious in letting us bring our 8 month old, but I would stick to their policy on children, age 8 and up.
Cute Victorian House with great access to Astoria's waterfront and downtown
We had a pleasant stay at this charming Victorian home. The dining room is the best room in this walk-up apartment: Gorgeous views of the river and boats, a great location to have a fun dinner and drinks with friends. Things that would make this place more comfortable: Sufficient black out curtains in the bed rooms; there was no real protection from the early daybreak, wish I could have slept in on my vacation. An update to TV and sounds system would be greatly appreciated. The coffee maker is in bad need of replacement and we had to spend some time detailing the French press before we could use it. All in all, thanks for a fun stay.
Perfect weekend get away!
I loved staying at the painted lady! The house had a perfect view of the Colombia river. The house was very charming and cute on the inside and out! Each room had something unique to its design and decoration. It is located in a perfect spot to where going places only takes a couple minutes! We went to the Astoria column, safe way, and out to dinner at Rogue brewery and we didn't have to travel far for any of the destinations. The property was clean and well maintained. I would definitely suggest the painted lady to friends!
First Impression: "WOW"!
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!
