  • Cozy Irish House

    "We loved our stay at the Irish House! It was a perfect place to come home to after a long day of tide-pooling, beach-combing, and dune-hopping. The wood stove got good use during our stay, and the electric blankets on the bed were a nice touch. Washer and dryer on site (which also got good use!), showers with yummy-smelling soap, shampoo, and conditioner. The onsite manager went above and beyond when it came to making sure we were comfortable and happy. Within a few minutes of our arrival, he arrived with a wheelbarrow full of cut firewood, as well as a pack n play and toddler bed for the kids. There was a full bag of ice in the freezer, and little ghiradelli mints on the pillows. Traveling with children can be fun, but unfortunately is often stressful. With that being said, this is truly the first vacation with the kids that I have felt RELAXED and worry-free. There were plenty of toys for them to play with, and the surrounding woods are a great way to spend time together exploring. (My son found a four-leaf clover!) There is a private dock to the river as well, but we didn't get a chance to use it. No complaints at all! Just a note about the weather: it can be very wet and rainy in Bandon, so be prepared! The Irish House has a boardwalk around the property so your feet don't get wet, but off the path, the yard can get muddy. It didn't present too much of a problem since there were so many other places outside where the kids could play. One last note: the owners and manager gave me the impression that they truly see the occupants as GUESTS- and they want to serve you and be helpful, and make sure you enjoy your stay in Bandon. Other properties in the area we were looking at made us feel like they were doing US a favor by letting us stay at their property. (?!) Not so at the Irish House (and the Norwegian and Swedish homes next door.) They made us feel like we were doing THEM a favor by letting them host us! A huge difference when it comes to customer service. We were very pleased with our stay, and give the Irish House an enthusiastic 5 stars!"

  • Very Comfortable Studio

    "My husband and I stayed at the Studio on Post Canyon for a few nights in September, 2014. John and Alison are great hosts and are quick to respond to any questions you may have. We did several hikes in the Columbia River Gorge which was awesome – we have never seen so many waterfalls - and it was wonderful to come back to such a comfortable place at the end of the day. The view of Mt. Adams from the back patio was an added bonus. It was so nice we never went out to eat! We walked down the road to a winery – very close and convenient. The studio is very clean, spacious and comfortable and has all kitchen utensils you could want to make a snack or a full meal. They even have a coffee grinder and a French press coffee maker which was an added bonus for us. We hope to be back – there is a lot more exploring to do in the area!"

  • Tranquil Setting in Tollgate

    "We were fortunate to be able to book this home for Valentine's Day. It sets in a very lovely, tranquil location. There is a nice level walking trail through the neighborhood and it is in very close proximity to Sisters to be able to take full advantage of the restaurants and shops. The home had all amenities listed and was clean and well-maintained. The owner was very gracious and went out of her way to answer our questions promptly. We would definitely return for another stay."

  • Charming Beach Cottage-Modern & Clean Inside

    "We had a wonderful vacation, It was perfect for our family of 6. The kitchen is big and well equipped with a BBQ on the back deck. The location is great, 2 blocks walk to the beach, 1 block walk to the 12th St. bridge for crabbing. We spent hours at the beach, walking, flying kites, and clamming. We also walked to downtown on the promenade, and enjoyed the home to relax at night. The beds were comfortable, plenty of bedding, blankets and towels. The beach cottage was immaculate and so well furnished. We will be back!"

Oregon Travel Tips

Outdoor enthusiasts, this is the place you’ve always dreamed of. Oregon is abound with hiking trails, bike paths, kayak adventures and more than 5,900 registered campsites. The Beaver State is sure to offer anything with fresh air and exquisite views. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll have to grab a beer at one of the dozens of microbreweries in this trendsetting culture. Find a taste of every terrain on earth - vast forests, volcanic peaks, deserts and lakes. Come check out what the Pacific Northwest has to share.

Here’s a glimpse at what to do across the state:

Greater Portland

Gardens, breweries, hip coffee shops - Portland has it all. Take a stroll around America’s largest open air arts and crafts market at Portland Saturday Market. You’ll be able to enjoy live music and a variety of astonishing and homemade products from March through December. Planning a family day trip? Head five minutes west from downtown to see the Oregon Zoo, which features more than 2,000 animals and has a highly-regarded Asian elephant breeding program.

If you need a slice of urban serenity, which might sound like an oxymoron, walk through the Lan Su Chinese Garden to be proven otherwise. The bridges, open colonnades, teahouse and garden designed in the Ming Dynasty style will leave you at ease. Moreover, Portland’s live music scene boasts everything from indie rock to soulful jazz. Buy tickets to Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall that sells the house out with the Oregon Symphony and nationally-touring acts. For nature excursions, one of the best places is Forest Park, which is the nation’s largest wooded urban park that packs more than 70 miles of hiking and walking trails. You would never guess it’s only 10 minutes away from downtown. To unwind, swing by one of the 31 microbreweries in the city. You’ll be sure to get your IPA or stout fix, with everything in between. Forget about PBR for one day. There is a reason why vacationers call Portland "Beervana."

The Coast

With almost 365 miles of coastline speckled with lighthouses, the western ridge of Oregon carries outstanding beach hikes to give your calves a little workout. Soak in the tide pools at Cape Perpetua Scenic Area, or simply take in panoramic views while the waves crash against the jagged rocks. It is said this is where forest meets the sea. Come see where the legendary explorers traversed the land at the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park. It features trails along the Columbia River and Pacific Coast. Afterwards, discover the waterways a little more unconventionally in a kayak on guided tours from park rangers. Golfers, you won’t want to miss hitting a round at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, whose motto is “golf as it was meant to be.” Spot wildlife as you gaze across the roaring waves.

Mt. Hood and the Columbia River Gorge

Only an hour east of Portland, Mt. Hood stands at a towering 11,245 feet, the highest elevation in the state, and is still an active volcano. Its amazing slopes and graceful foothills mark the spot for nature lovers. Set off on hiking trails, go windsurfing, ski or snowboard, and afterward, cool off sailing or windsurfing on the mighty Columbia River.

Central Oregon

300 days of sun grace the land of Central Oregon. That means it’s almost always time to venture outside. Whether it’s for a half, full or multi-day trip, bring the crew whitewater rafting along the White Salmon, Grande Ronde, Rogue, Clackamas and Deschutes rivers. Smith Rock State Park lends sublime cliffs for rock climbers, beginner to expert. If you’re coming here in the summer, catch music stars like of Buddy Guy at the Oregon Zoo, or in the winter get ready to hit some of the best powder around at Hoodoo Ski Area, which is located atop Santiam Pass. For shoppers, there are great open-air shopping options like Cascade Village on Highway 97. Don’t get skimpy on souvenirs and self-gifts, because there’s no sales tax!

Eastern Oregon

Eastern Oregon is best described by its slowed-down and relaxed attitude on life. From Alpine-esque mountains to ghosts town to deserts, it is perfect place to get back in touch with nature. Make your way to Hells Canyon, the deepest river gorge in North America, to discover abundant wildlife. Go hiking or horseback riding at the foot of its immense mountains, or drive across the 59-mile loop of Steens Mountains for a look at a peak created from internal pressure along the fault line, and while there you may even catch a glimpse of wild horses. Don’t miss a visit to the Alvord Desert where you can take a dip in the hot springs.

Southern Oregon

Home to the deepest lake in the nation, Crater Lake, Southern Oregon is truly a sight to behold. The lake is 1,932 feet deep and has a stunning royal blue hue. Go camping with friends or family along its shores. In the winter, Crater Lake boasts a whopping 533 inches of snowfall a year, which is powder perfect for snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.The southern part of Oregon is also known for its temperate climate. It is ideal for world-renowned fishing and river rafting. Swirl your glasses with varietals that led the Abacela Winery to win “Oregon Winery of the Year,” only a short path from Pacific Highway 5. It has everything from high deserts to valleys to lakes. You can even trek through the marble cave at Oregon Caves National Monument.

One of the most bike-friendly places on the planet, the Beaver State has a nature nook for everyone. For snowboarding, beer-tasting, hiking and 360 degrees of outdoor livin’, come explore Oregon for yourself.
