About Sara Klobas

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!!

Sara Klobas purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Sara Klobas chose Northern Coast

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Pleasant cottage close to the ocean in a quiet and peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

We spent two nights at the Peptide over the Easter weekend. We had great weather and enjoyed a long walk at the beach and a hike at Cape Meares near the lighthouse. We had lunch at Rosanna's in Oceanside which has windows looking out at the ocean and has excellent food at a reasonable price. The Peptipe was more than big enough for three adults (or 4) and has a very well equipped kitchen and a nice little woodstove. The beds were comfortable. The couch and chair in the living room are not comfortable as they are too old and really do need to be replaced. The location of the cottage is excellent with the beach only a short walk down the street. The beach can be walked on for miles and the sunset in the evening was beautiful. Tillamook is not far away and has a big Fred Meyer store as well as the Blue Heron French Cheese Company and the Tillamook Cheese Factory which are worth visiting. I would stay at the Peptide again, especially if the couch and chair were replaced.

Owner's Response: I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Peptide! We love our little cottage in our small, quiet community. We understand the couch is old, but if anyone comments on it they usually say it's comfortable. Ugly, but comfy. HAHA. During the last year we have been planning on replacing it anyway. Hopefully we will find the one we want soon. The chair and small table next to it are a set that my husband got from his parents after his mother passed away. I doubt its going anywhere, but the couch we plan to purchase will be larger and able to accommodate more people.

Clean and cozy, the house was perfect. The bedrooms were neat and the entire location was great.

  • 5 of 5

I brought my three kids and dog for mommy and me weekend much-needed. After reading good reviews I was more than excited to bring my kiddos. However, the experience just got better as we stayed. The house was perfect and cozy, realistic and kid friendly. It was clean and had everything needed to make meals at home. The front yard was peaceful with the tree and the sound of the ocean out the bedroom window Just tied it in. I love the location, close to the ocean and not to far from town. Near attractions (Lighthouse, octopus tree, giant spruce spruce), that the kids (and I ) loved. Just a great experience for us. We hope to come back ❤️💜? Oh! And everyone we met was awesome!! The owners are prompt and kind, I appreciate that they are very responsive and welcoming.

Overall, a wonderful experience. Many memories

A rainy but wonderful visit to the Peptide

  • 4 of 5

This was the third fall week we have spent in Cape Meares over the past two years and each time the house has served us well. I cooked all the meals in the fully equipped kitchen, used the washer and dryer, the wood stove and the DVD player without any problems. The house is darling and cosy and Sarah, the host, is easy to work with.

Well recommended.

A delightful gem

  • 5 of 5

Peptide is a delightful gem in a quiet town right on the ocean. The home is cozy, clean and has everything you need on vacation. The owner, Sara, is responsive and accommodating (we asked for another day and she rearranged the cleaning etc. to allow us to add on a day at a moments notice.) The house sits in a nice yard in a quiet and pretty neighborhood with a 3 minute walk to the ocean. You can hear the waves all night. The town is nestled at the base of Cape Meares. There are no services but Tillamook is only 7 miles away along a pretty road. The beach is excellent. You can walk for miles along the coast and dunes without passing a house or car, only the gulls and pelicans are there to notice. This house and little town are a hidden gem along the gorgeous Oregon Coast.

Car: necessary

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!
