Sometimes its just hard to decide: Should we stay here, or there? This place has lots of restaurants and shops; that place is quiet and picturesque. When you're stuck between the options - like choosing between busy Lincoln City and charming, tiny Depoe Bay - why not meet them halfway in beautiful Lincoln Beach? Tucked away in a quiet residential area of Lincoln Beach just a mile from magnificent Depoe Bay (site of the world's smallest navigable harbor!), let this lovely set of homes just a block from miles of sandy shoreline be the golden mean in your vacation lodging quandary.
Step into this beautiful home, and you're greeted with comfort and the prospect of fun. One of the first rooms you'll encounter is the game room, complete with an air hockey table for the kids. Head up the stairs to the great room, and Mom and Dad get their prize: an atmosphere filled with comfy furniture and a wood stove where you can thaw out from that chilly walk along the shore. (Make sure you bring along some wood). Stretch out, relax and listen to music on the CD player or watch a movie on the DVD/VCR player. Enjoy your favorite show via satellite dish or just gaze out over the ocean from the living room or out on the deck. The second building even has its own living room for added privacy.
The kitchen is nicely equipped for preparing meals. In addition to the standard appliances, you'll have a microwave for quick snacks, a big fridge, a coffee grinder for a really fresh cup of java, and a dishwasher for easy, quick clean-ups. Weather permitting, fire up the gas grill on the deck and enjoy a barbecue. Plenty of restaurants between Lincoln City (about nine minutes north) and Depoe Bay (about seven minutes to the south). You'll find 68 eateries in Lincoln City alone that cater to every taste.
At bedtime, you'll have six bedrooms to choose from, for a total of 16 guests. Two bedrooms are on the main, entry level, one with two sets of bunk beds, another with a full/twin bunk (and a TV). Kids will also have fun drawing on the chalkboards mounted on the bedroom doors! This level has a full bathroom as well. Upstairs, on the living area level, is the master bedroom with a king bed and access to the private balcony where you can step out and get deep breath of ocean air (another TV in here too). There's another full bath near the master bedroom. The second building features two twin-size bedrooms and a queen-size master bedroom, along with a pull-out sofa in its living room and two more bathrooms. Willow Street also has a washer and dryer.
This beautiful home is strategically located, north and south, to some wonderful sites and great shops and dining! Bird watchers, bring your binoculars over to Fogarty Creek State Park - it's just down the road. It's not only a go-to place to watch our feathered friends, Fogarty also has lots of tide pools where you can see exotic sea creatures up close. Depoe Bay's rugged coastline is rich with marine life. Waves run beneath lava beds creating spouting geysers up to 60 feet into the air. In the town of Depoe Bay, a huge seawall runs the length of the downtown area where visitors can shop and dine with an amazing view of the Pacific.
Arrange a deep-sea fishing or whale-watching trip on one of the local charters. Head up to Lincoln City where you can stroll on seven miles of beach with 15 public accesses. Go fly a kite: Lincoln City is the Kite Capital of the World. Anglers can snag any of nine species of freshwater fish at Devil's Lake. Learn some cooking tips at the Lincoln City's Culinary Center. See how glass is blown at the Alder House Glass blowing studio. Or, try your luck at Chinook Winds Casino.
Whatever you call fun, you're likely to find it somewhere near this beautiful home, ideally located between Lincoln City and Depoe Bay!
