                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: My husband Zoe and I love renovating properties and and making them beautiful again! We have 3 vacation rentals at Rockaway Beach, Oregon and a B & B in Woodland, Washington called The Empress Estate...check out our websites!

                      Why the Owner Chose Rockaway Beach:
                      Rockaway Beach is a quaint, old-fashioned Oregon Coast town, with cozy coffee shops, family owned restaurants and a great selection of fun antique, thrift and classic beach-town fudge/taffy shops. Rockaway Beach is the perfect location on the northern coast, being only 90 minutes from Portland, and within an hours drive up or down the coast from the other Oregon Coast popular destinations, such as Astoria's Historic Fort Clatsop and Fort Stevens, and Newport's Oregon Coast Aquarium. The northern coast is also a great stretch for taking in the many historic light houses Oregon has to offer.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Some of the most relaxing experiences at The Alderwood Cottage are during the early mornings, sitting with our coffee in the cozy Adirondack chairs on the deck as the sun comes up over the surrounding hills, with the soothing 'babbling' of the little brook that runs beside the deck. The sound of the breeze through the surrounding Alder trees is peaceful and relaxing, sitting on the front porch with our hot cocoa and watching those unforgettable Pacific sunsets. In the summer months, the accompaniment of frogs in the evening is quite entertaining.
