We offer one bedroom, two story apartments overlooking the quaint fishing boat harbor of Yaquina Bay in Newport, Oregon. A fully equipped kitchen, two gas fireplaces (one in the living room, one in the bedroom), large (15' x 20') balcony and a jetted tub in the bathroom! Go up a spiral stairway to the upper floor bedroom! Magnificent views of the harbor seem to be constantly changing from the large picture windows in the living room! Restaurants, bars, fishing and sailing trips and more are available within easy walk (or let us book one for you!). Walk your dog on the quarter mile long boardwalk just across from your apartment! Tour the headquarters of the famous Rouge brewery here on the Bay! We are directly across the bay from the new NOAA West coast headquarters! Other local attractions include the Oregon Coast Aquarium, Hatfield Marine Science Center, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, Undersea Gardens, majestic and unpopulated ocean beaches, lighthouses, ocean and bay cruises, an oyster farm, scenic coastal overlooks and more! Crabbing, clamming and fishing are favorite local pastimes. Come watch the whale migration this winter! Kite and windsurfing are possible and lessons are available! There is a local Indian gaming casino nearby (Lincoln City) with gambling, restaurants, shows and more. There are several events throughout the year in and around Newport that should not be missed! Check with our local Chamber of Commerce website. People tend to book early for the Seafood and Wine Festival, in February. We have the best seats in Newport for the 4th of July fireworks on the Bay from your apartment balcony! Tuna, salmon, halibut, crab, rock cod, clams and more are some of the varied fish and shellfish you will find off shore and in our bays and rivers! It would be hard to see it all in a just a few days!

Order food from our Sail Inn Cafe where you can dine on the large indoor/outdoor deck while watching the people walk by and viewing the fishing boats. The restaurant's open from 11AM to 7 PM and we can deliver to your room. Some have asked if you can hear anything from the restaurant in the apartments upstairs.The answer is absolutely not - in fact most people love the convenience of the great food and drink we offer and no one has ever mentioned hearing anything below (except the nearby sea lions which they love!)
Eat and surf the net with our WiFi connection at the restaurant, or in your apartment. You'll find the freshest seafood, burgers, Thai food and a full bar for lunch and dinner seven days a week (open noon on Sunday). The restaurant is wheelchair accessible and the outside deck is pet friendly.
The Sail Inn is often described in our guest book as 'the perfect romantic getaway!'
Like they say, 'It's better by the Bay!' Hope to see you here!
Many of the attractions of Newport are either a short walk or drive away. With enough seafood bistros, pubs, cafes, and family restaurants to keep you well-fed for a month, you may never want to leave Newport. There are plenty of antique shops, galleries, and arcades to explore, so rainy days won't be any problem at all. When the sun shines, you can head to South Beach State Park for a guided kayak tour, surf at Agate Beach, play a round of golf, dig for razor clams, or try your hand at deep-sea fishing. Newport has something special to offer every member of your family!

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I have been a photographer, writer and filmmaker for over 50 years. I have also been involved with the tourist industry for many years, even working as a tour guide in the Amazon and leading the first organized group hikes (for the Sierra Club) on the Machu Picchu Trail in Peru. For the past 15 years I was sidetracked, converting old properties into new businesses. First was the old farmhouse on the edge of Hollywood, CA I bought and converted through a long and very difficult process into the Farmhouse Cafe. I ran this for a few years as a Thai restaurant, but slowly grew more and more disillusioned with the film biz in Hollywood and life in LA and turned my sites toward a more peaceful life in Oregon. I sold my house and restaurant in LA and bought some commercial properties in Newport and a home in the country nearby. Three more long and difficult years of zoning changes, payoffs, red tape and endless dollars spent, we opened the Sail Inn, occupying the upper floors of the Bayfront property in Newport. Having gone through the long and very difficult process of converting a residence to a restaurant in LA I swore to “never again” attempt such a project. Instead I would keep the ground floor space as a retail rental. But while digging ditches and hanging around the building during the three years of construction, I must have had dozens of people stop and ask, “Do you know where Local Ocean is?” (a Bayfront popular restaurant) and I just couldn’t stand it anymore. So began the next one and a half year project to convert that ground level space into the Sail Inn Cafe. The Sail Inn businesses have taken off and are now quite successful. The restaurant is holding its own in very difficult economic times, when many other restaurants have come and gone since we arrived. Hopefully, now that the dust has settled and we have been open for a while, I can once again return to my roots of travel, writing, photography and film during the off season Winter months!
Why the Owner Chose Newport, OR, USA:
Location! Location! Location! I bought this Bayfront property, sight unseen from an internet listing only on the market a few days. I had my broker place an offer and to my surprise it was immediately accepted! It was a small, empty, two story building with an extra lot on one side. I based my decision on its location – that million dollar Bayfront, fishing fleet and harbor view! The view from the deck with ever changing views by day or night! I love talking to people from all over the world who come to spend a night or have a meal. I love their expression as they enter the apartment and see the view from the living room picture window for the first time and walk out on the deck and up the spiral stairway to the bedroom upstairs! Walk to Bayfront shops and attractions for an added bonus. Stroll the boardwalk along the bay to see the fishing boats on the docks. Buy fresh fish or crab from the fishermen. Visit the sea lions. Drive along Bay Blvd. to visit the Oregon Oyster Farm for fresh oysters! There’s 4th of July fireworks on the Bay right in front of your apartment and the lighted Boat Parade in December and the view of the large NOAA research vessels docked right across the bay from us. There’s the Newport Aquarium, Rogue Brewery headquarters, Hatfield Science Center, and soon to be completed International Marine Terminal where ocean going tour boats will come and go! Deep sea fishing, crabbing, beautiful, nearly empty State Park beaches, lighthouses, whale watching and more! I can go on, but why not come and discover it yourself! Proudest moment: I was downstairs working on construction of the restaurant and a family was checking into one of the apartments upstairs. I heard footsteps, running around the apartment and up and down the spiral stairway and a young girl screams, “Mommy, this is the best place we’ve ever stayed in!” Moments like this make it all worthwhile!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
One of the few rental properties right on the Bayfront in Newport. Even fewer rentals have a great view of the commercial fishing harbor, and this is the best! Plus it's a front row seat to the 4th of July fireworks, Lighted Boat parade and several other seasonal events!
