Can't beat the serenity in this full apartment w/ kitchen, bath, bedroom and den (1,000 sq feet). Breathtaking views. Twenty minutes from the beach and seventy miles due west of Portland; this is a gem.
The Extra Room is a spacious apartment overlooking the lush Tillamook Valley just off the Trask River. Tillamook is 70 miles due west of Portland on the central Oregon Coast, which is twenty minutes from Netarts, Oceanside beach, and Cape Mears, an hour & 15 minutes to Cannon Beach, 45 minutes to Pacific City, or an hour and a half to Portland and everything in between.
In town, you can visit the Tillamook Cheese Factory, Blue Heron (French Cheese, wine tasting, petting zoo), Pelican Brewing Company, De Garde brewery, the Pioneer Museum, the Farmer's Market, Latimer Textile Center to follow the quilt square tour, or head to the beach a mere 20 minute scenic drive away. We are close to fishing, clamming, kayaking, cycling, hiking, and good seafood eats. Many visitors enjoy the coastal train or rail peddler experience.
A comfy queen bed, kitchenette, and private entrance await you. In the apartment is a refrigerator, stove, microwave, dining table, shower, DirecTV, web access, and games. The queen bed is perfect for a couple and there is a fold-out futon sofa comfortable for a child or extra person. There is ample free parking and a yard, picnic table, and deck to enjoy. This is a great place to sleep in and relax. The only neighbors you may hear are the birds nesting in our trees.
Although we'd love to meet you, we travel for work and play ourselves, so in our absence, we have innkeepers.
There is a coastal bus that provides transportation from Portland, Salem and along the Oregon Coast. The bus connects to other systems on the north end of Washington and south on to California. There is also a town loop.
Although this space is all on one level with no stairs to navigate, it is not actually handi-capable because of the gravel access path to the door and no roll-in shower.
The apartment includes one bedroom, one bathroom with shower, kitchen, dining and den, piano, yard, picnic table, deck, and driveway. The bedroom and den may be separated with a privacy curtain. In the den, we have a smart flat screen TV and a pull-out futon to accommodate a child or extra guests.
Interaction with guests
We love to visit and talk with our guests should they like. We are both still working and travel quite a bit for work and pleasure, so we are in and out and about. We are always a text message or phone call away to accommodate guests.
Other things to note
There is a full kitchen with pots, pans, mixing bowls, utensils, etc. We have a full refrigerator, oven, stove, and microwave. We have air-conditioning that we seldom need here on the coast; we'll be glad to turn it on should you like things cooler.
NO Smoking! - I am allergic and get very sick! Please park on the LEFT side of the garage by the Guest Parking sign as we need to be able to get our own cars out of the garage and have lawn services, etc scheduled to arrive at various times. Pet boarding is available in the Tillamook area; we keep the apartment allergy free. As you turn onto Valley View Drive, there may be children at the first house. Deer or dogs may be crossing Valley View Drive. Please drive slowly for your safety and theirs.
Children: Even though we are child-friendly; we are not child-safe. Our property is located on a fairly steep hill. Even though there is some flat yard area, small children will need to be monitored carefully. We do not furnish a crib or pack-n-play; however, the futon is at ground level. We do not have child safety locks on cabinets.
