The Peptide is located in Cape Meares. Cape Meares is one of the 3 capes on the Scenic Route on the Oregon coast and sits on the south end of the Tillamook Bay. There are 4 miles of uncrowded beach to enjoy as you stroll, play or relax on on the shore. Fishing, biking, kayaking, canoeing, birdwatching and hiking are just some of the great activities to do while visiting CM and if you would like to venture into town (aprox. 7 miles), you may like to get some ice cream at the Tillamook Cheese Factory, pick up some fresh Netarts Bay oysters at JAndy's Oyster Co. (call first and ask what's available 503-812-0253), check out the vintage planes at the Air Museum, sample some cheese and wine at the Blue Heron Cheese Factory and take a train ride on a Steam Engine from Garibaldi to Rockaway and back.

There are many species of birds who make Cape Meares and the Bay their home. Blue Herons are a common site, as well as Bald Eagles, Osprey and smaller birds such as Red Winged Black Birds. There have been sightings of deer, elk, porcupine, beaver, bear and more.

Cape Meares is a wooded area. There are no stores, restaurants or gas stations. It is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. So if you are looking for a small town feel, come here and experience Cape Meares at the Peptide!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are Ryan and Sara Klobas. We have two boys, Preston (12) and Vance (9). Both of us are native Oregonians and grew up walking the sands and playing in the great waters of the Oregon Coast. Our parents moved here in the 60's and settled in to have a family. We now reside in NE Portland and LOVE Oregon!!

Why the Owner Chose Cape Meares, OR, USA:
We found this little pink cottage through our sister in law, who lives in Cape Meares full time. We put the word out that we were looking, and after about a year, this little gem popped up as a potential purchase. We spoke to the owner several times and soon shook hands and made a deal. Since then, we have made this place our home away from home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is so much to love about Cape Meares. The 4 miles of uncrowded beach, the drive up the bay, the birds singing as you walk past the lake on the way to the beach, the friendly neighbors, the bright beautiful stars on a clear nite, riding bikes on the spit and beyond, the tidepools if you're there when the tide is LOW, the deck, the wood stove, the great meals on the BBQ, walking forever on the beach or picking blackberries late in Summer. It's just a great place to get away from the craziness of being home.
