"Our branch of the family consists of 14 individuals, seven adults and seven children ages 1-14.
The 3 bedroom 'suites', 4th bedroom with double bunk beds, provided Play and Pack and the 'hide-a-beds' on the second and third floor huge sofas exceeded our needs. Everyone was happy!
The third floor game room had air hockey (yes it worked) and a surprising number of toys and games for all ages. With the sofa and gas fireplace it turned into a good 5th bedroom at night. The hot tub on the game room balcony was clean, hot and well used by us. The ocean is visible to some degree from all floors.
The kitchen on the second floor was truly great! It was filled with good appliances, small appliances, cookware and bakeware, and on and on and on. If you do not see it at first - go treasure-hunting through all the drawers and cabinets and you will probably find it. Two gas grills were found in the garage and one of them grilled tasty fresh oysters in their shells (Sam helped). Laundry area located in second floor 1/2 bathroom.
We hosted the other branches of the family (34 people) for breakfast featuring crab omelets, grilled oyster, baked bacon and blueberry pancakes. Except for parking (we shuttled mostly), easy in this beach house. The extended family voted ours the best of 4 beach houses rented for this reunion. We definitely hope to rent this house in the future for a 'mini-reunion' of our immediate family - although we are expecting #15 soon.
So much more to say about this house and Lincoln City - but time for me to go back to daily life - your turn to check it out! Definitely a 5 star experience for all of us.
All is not perfect. 1) Parking requirements for leased houses in Lincoln City are strict, but we were able to park our three large size vehicles in the outside spaces, all within the boundaries, leaving one more space inside the garage. 2) Not wheelchair accessible and we would not recommend it for anyone who cannot climb stairs (with good railing) fairly easily. 3) Not right on the beach. You will need to walk a block to get to the easy accessed beach (and about 5-6 to get to the casino)."
