Six adults in our family spent the Xmas holidays here in 2018 and we loved both the house and the area. The house was nicely equipped in all the rooms and especially the kitchen. The elevator is a very nice feature, especially when hauling in luggage or shopping bags. The main living area is on the third floor and you have a spectacular view of the bay and the ocean farther out. Since it was chilly, we did not try crabbing but we would really have liked to. We talked to some locals that were crabbing from the beach/shore at the right time and it looked like some fun. As an alternative, we bought some great oysters from the nearby oyster farm and live crabs from a grocery store a couple of streets over and some mussels and clams from Safeway in Tillamook and we had a wonderful seafood feast one night.
Two of the folks in our party live in Eugene and they helped us find a live Christmas tree to cut down in the nearby national forest. They knew about getting a permit to do this and they were able to find one of finest trees we've ever had.
The house is really nicely laid out with its 3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor. Having essentially 2 master bedrooms was a big plus. Nick, our host, gave us some great tips about the area and answered all my silly questions.
The house is quite modern and up to date but it's in a very quiet area. You feel secluded but the essentials, and lots of great places to see are within easy driving distances. We love the Oregon coast and this house is a great place to use as a base.
