  • Very comfortable

    "My family has stayed at Black Butte every summer for about 17 years. This was the best house we ever stayed at for several reasons. First, it is a very short and easy walk to the pool and gym. Second, it has WIFI. Third, the furniture was a very high quality, not like most other rental houses. The living room couch and chairs were not worn and I would have been happy to have that furniture in my home. The owners had bikes, which saves you boatloads of money because you do not have to rent. The hot tub was wonderful. Finally, the air conditioning came in handy a couple of times. Most importantly, the owners were very easy to deal with and always making sure we were enjoying ourselves."

  • Perfect House!

    "This was the perfect house for my husbands 40th birthday fishing trip! We (3 couples, Dad, Dad-n-law, and Brother) had all the room we needed at The Happy Clam. The set-up, with the addition of the downstairs apartment, was perfect for us, giving everyone their space and privacy when needed, but still plenty of room to all hang out comfortably in the open kitchen/dining/great room. With the perfectly appointed and well-stocked kitchen and large dining table, we were able to stay in one night to enjoy our catch. And the nearby bayfront gave us plenty of options for dinner on the other night. The brewery, in walking distance, made for a fun pre-meal happy hour, and the jetty walk right out the door was great for enjoying the fresh ocean air. The owners were wonderful, very helpful and attentive when needed, even returning a call from half way around the world when we were locked out of the downstairs apartment! They happily answered my MANY questions during the planning phase, as there were quite a few because of trying to coordinate for a large group, some who'd never even met each other. (I was worried about everyone being comfortable with sleeping and bathroom situations, but in the end, there was nothing to worry about.) This was the absolute perfect rental house, and we truly hope to rent it again in the future! Clean, comfortable, well-stocked, easy to find, great location, ample parking, comfortable beds, nice views, big, plenty of seating, all bedrooms have their own bathroom, fun gameroom in the garage, helpful owners. Perfect rental house, that doesn't even feel like a rental!"

  • Great location - great layout and pet friendly!

    "My husband, sister & BIL, and a mutual friend all stayed in this house with a dog, in August. we LOVED it. It's not fancy but the open layout was great for dining in (e.g. if you were cooking, you weren't cut off from everyone else), the bedding and beds were all really nice, the WiFi was actually better than what we have at home through Comcast and the location of this house is phenom. It's right across the street from general beach access and you're far enough away from the Dory Launch that you don't get a ton of people on "your" beach, yet you're a very quick (1/8-1/4 mile?) walk from that area (and from the pub!) We had a large dog staying with us too and the house was very dog friendly, with a deck that was easy to block off such that the dog could be indoors or outdoors if we were home. Lastly - the management company really took care of us when we had an issue. I really appreciated the quick response and care they took and will definitely rent from them again. Also - highly recommend ATV rentals from http://www.sandlaketsunamiatvrental.com/index.htm - the owner was fantastic and we had a BLAST at the Sand Lake Rec area. oh! and there is a ton of cool geocaching at the state parks and also along the adjacent spit (and probably at Cape Kiwanda although we were too busy catching our breath and sighting whales to take advantage). All in all - great house & location!"

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.
