  • Pleasantly surprised

    "We held our annual "friends" weekend at this place. The house was better than anticipated and the view was AMAZING... We loved the tubs and fire pit. After posting pics of our stay and the fun we had; I have been getting massive messages from those that attended and friends/family of attendees, asking where this was and contact info. Truly perfect setting and place!!!"

  • Fantastic family reunion from England and NZ

    "We were a group of 9 who were gathering from across the globe (England, New Zealand and USA) for a family reunion. The Happy Clam was perfect for us all to spend time together and have space for quiet moments when we needed to. The house had everything we could have wished for - great views, very comfortable house with everything provided that we needed. The smallest details had been thought of and we all felt as though we were living in hotel quality accommodation but with all the comforts of home. The description of the house was accurate and the whole property was clean and smelt fresh on our arrival. The owners were exceedingly helpful, patient and friendly as we organised our booking from the other side of the world with all the complications of time zones and transfers of funds that this entailed. Diredtions to the house from both Portland and Eugene were accurate and helpful. Access to the house was easy. We would definitely recommend this house to others and will let all our friends know that if they are planning to visit Newport to book this house."

  • Great Location ~ Nice Place to Stay - Pampered as a Puffin~

    "The house was great, the only thing I would recommend is that if you plan to 'grill' anything, you may want to bring your own---the house grill was in pretty rough shape~ Luvv the house though, and the location was close to the beach access and several restaurants and shops. Would DEFINITELY return :)"

  • A Summer Vacation

    "A perfect place to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Oregon coast while relaxing in the hot tub. This house was just the right size for the two of us and our dog. Also, the location of this little cottage is close to Newport, Depoe Bay, and my favorite, Nye Beach."

Newport Travel Tips

Newport Vacation Rentals in Oregon Make the Perfect Vacation Homes

The Oregon coastline is world-famous for its rock formations, dashing seas and scenic bays. Newport itself is known as the Dungeness Crab Capital of the World and has more than 80 restaurants, from small cafés to four-star dining experiences. It also offers a host of activities and attractions for those staying in this charming area. The nearby Siuslaw National Forest, the historic town of Toledo and the wineries of the Willamette Valley can all be visited from your Newport Lodging base.

With a population of 10,000, the town’s main industries are fishing, wood products and tourism. With a developed Bayfront area, Nye Beach and the Highway 101 corridor, Newport has something for every visitor.

Things to Do from Your Newport Lodging

The coastline offers a host of things to do from your Newport condos. Walking along the beach, crabbing and fishing are all popular activities. The area has many trails which are ideal for hiking including the 10-mile Cummins Creek Loop trail. The coast is known for its scenic lighthouses which can be visited. The lovely Yaquina Bay Lighthouse is believed to be the oldest structure in Newport. It was replaced three years after being built by the Yaquina Head Lighthouse, the tallest in Oregon at 93 feet. Fishing charters and whale watching trips both provide exciting days out from Newport.

How to Get to Newport Condos

The quickest way to reach Newport, Oregon from other states is by air. Portland International Airport is a 97-mile drive from Newport and has frequent flights to all parts of the U.S. The pleasant drive heads southwest from Portland through small towns and impressive scenery, including the wine country around McMinnville.

The Advantages of Newport Vacation Rentals

Choosing Newport Vacation Rentals makes good financial sense for families. Newport condos work out to be much cheaper per head than hotels, and the extra bedrooms allow everyone plenty of space to chill out and follow their own pursuits. Having your own Newport lodging means you can save money by preparing meals and stocking up on snacks and drinks at supermarket prices rather than spending on room service. Comfortable living space and a well-equipped kitchen are all good reasons to choose a vacation rental when planning your visit to Oregon.

Neighborhoods to Visit Around Your Newport Lodging

Corvallis is in the heart of the Willamette Valley wine country and a sizeable town with some good restaurants. Take a tour of a winery or sample the local produce, including the excellent Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay which are produced here. Take a detour to the picturesque Alsea Falls during your trip, situated near Apline.

Albany is another great day out from Newport. The Calapooia Brewing Company is a small brewery with a pub attached. The town’s museum is housed in the Thomas and Walter Monteith House which is on the National Register of Historic Places. Downtown Albany has a historic district and many antique shops and restaurants as well as the Civic Theater and Carnegie library.

The Weather in Newport, Oregon

The defining word of Oregon’s weather is “changeable.” In any single day. there may be clear sunny skies one minute and rain and fog the next. Foggy mornings give way to sunny afternoons so every day has the potential for fine weather. In winter, the crisp clear days are ideal for beach walks. Even in January, the average daytime temperature is a mild 45 F (7 C). Dry summer days reach 70 F (21 C) and mild nights make summer visits pleasant. The long Indian summers prolong the season into fall. Newport is unlikely to see snow due to its coastal position but further inland the Cascades have up to 550 inches (1,400 centimeters) of snow on the high peaks.
