Bring a coin when you stay at this stylish and comfortable Gleneden Beach vacation rental home because, with the ocean a short walk in one direction and Salishan Resort two blocks in the other, you just might have to flip to choose between the beautiful sandy beach, or a day on the links. Bright and cozy, this spacious three-bedroom home - tucked away in a quiet neighborhood on the north end of Gleneden Beach - has a modern, minimalist feel inside and out, and offers plenty of perks like free WiFi, TV with a DVD player, and an outdoor firepit where you can gather, by the fire's glow, under the stars.
Return from your day exploring nearby Siletz Bay to this home's stylish living area where you'll kick back on comfortable, unpretentious furniture and warm yourself by the charming, faux (gas) woodstove. Read that novel by the bright sunlight through the big bay window or listen to one of the CDs you brought along. Offload your digital images on the laptop and, while you're on it, bring up the internet with the free WiFi and check out a place to eat, or goings-on at nearby Salishan or up in Lincoln City, about fifteen minutes to the north. And don't forget to pack some of your favorite DVDs so you can slide one into the player and enjoy a movie when the coastal skies are gray.
This lovely home has three bedrooms and a loft, and will accommodate up to eight of you. All three of the bedrooms are downstairs. Two have a queen bed, each nicely and simply decorated, and the third bedroom contains 2 twin beds. Head up the stairs where you'll find the loft space with a double-size bed. There's one full bathroom on the main level with a walk-in shower and a washer and dryer, so don't over-pack! Well-behaved dogs are also welcome, though a nightly fee per dog and minimum fee per stay will apply.
If you're hungry and planning to dine out, you'll find that most of the places to eat are located adjacent to Salishan Resort. One popular is the Side Door Cafe, but, depending on how far you want to travel, there are tons of great eateries up in Lincoln City and down in Newport. Otherwise, turn your cook loose in this fully equipped kitchen, complete with everything he or she will need to make culinary magic including - in addition to the obligatory stove, microwave and fridge - there are plenty of utensils, pots and pans. And, you'll enjoy that same savory cup of coffee you enjoy at home with the coffee grinder! When it's nice, get the charcoal glowing hot in the grill out on the patio and barbecue your feast.
It's a short walk to the beach from this beautiful home. Take a stroll, fly a kite (the persistent coastal breeze has made Gleneden the home of two annual kite festivals), or just enjoy the sunset. Over at Fogarty Creek State Recreation Area (just four minutes away) you can explore the marine life in the tidepools, or view the diverse species of birds that call it home. Make the half-hour trip south to Newport where you can watch the town's resident sea lions cavort near the docks, or enjoy a sumptuous, seafood meal at one of its many restaurants. Or, if you're up to a night out, make the 10 minute drive up to Lincoln City and enjoy dinner in one of its many restaurants, have a shopping spree in its outlet mall, or see how Lady Luck treats you at Chinook Winds Casino.
