Our vacation share is a large open, airy and private space about 20' x 25'. (See photos). It is used as our TV, Art Studio and 2nd bedroom for our kids and family when visiting. It has a cabin like feel, with high open beam ceiling, light pine walls and flooring. It's many windows and skylights give a feeling of being out in the woods. There is also a peekaboo view of the river and ocean from the windows or small private deck overlooking the yard. Its decorated in an inviting artsy, funky, eclectic vib, that is very warm and calming. A great place to hang out. A restful place to sleep.
The cottage has a large screen, smart TV with free antenna that provides about ten local station but can access the internet through our wifi. We also have Netflix for movies and shows.
The heat source is a sweet gas flame free standing fireplace that not only provides heat the look of a wood burner with a glassed-in view of rolling flames, especially delightful on a chilly night. There is no air conditioning, however, Astoria weather averages between 40 and 70 degrees all year long so it is usually not needed. And there are several doors (no screens) along with two large screened windows to provide a great cross breeze for warmer days or nights.
We have a lovely fenced backyard that we will share with advance notice with you or some of your local friends! The cottage also has a small comfortable deck over-looking the yard. Easy off street parking. The cottage is very private and coming and going is very open and easy. We want your stay to be a refuge from the world. There is a private entrance, and we are usually home. But, how much you want to visit is up to you!
FYI our yard has LOTS of shy cats. You probably won’t see them, but be warned if you have allergies, one or two has spent time in the space we share.
Speaking of allergies, for all our guests comfort now and in the future, we ask that you avoid using strong scents during your stay with us. We truly appreciate your cooperation in this matter!
