The SpaceThis apartment located in an historic ca. 1900 building, originally built for the fishermen who plied the Columbia River for salmon, is located almost in the heart of Astoria, the first US settlement West of the Rockies.
The apartment is suitable for 1 or 2 adults. Don't expect modern, it is an old building, with comfortable furnishings, not fussy, not matchy-matchy. Expect "patina of age" which some call charm or character. Guest AccessGuests are within 1 block of the Trolley that can take them the length of the Water Front, having access to several fine dining establishments, 4 micro breweries, 1 real winery, a restored downtown
Theater (originally vaudeville), a short drive to Fort Clatsop, the winter encampment of Lewis & Clark . Step out of the door to history, magnificent scenery, shops and the smell of clean sea air! Interaction with GuestsI enjoy sharing our history and places of interest with our guests, however appreciate their time and privacy. We are a short 5 minutes away and available for help and questions at any time, in person, via email or phone. We want our guests to feel safe and be comfortable, we have installed keyless entry with your own personal code. The NeighborhoodTake a Rain Vacation in Astoria!
The neighborhood is ideal for anyone wanting a River experience, watch the huge ships pass by quietly, or small sailboats drifting or fishing boats on their way out to sea. Hear the seagulls and maybe sea lions as they make their way along the river. Walk or bike the RiverWalk or catch the trolley into town, only a few short blocks. On Sundays you will enjoy walking to the Sunday Market (May - Oct) for your locally grown produce, fresh flowers or local souvenirs and artful gifts. Lots of interesting shops, art galleries and antiques, within easy walking distance of the apartment.
This apartment is across Marine Drive/Hwy 30, one block from the RiverWalk and Trolley that runs the length of the waterfront. The Hwy coming into town from the West and the East parallels the Columbia River which follows the Lewis & Clark journey. The Art Loft is across the street with an Art Store on the street level. Great restaurants and coffee shops both East and West of the apartment, some menus provided in Guidebook. Getting AroundThe local Trolley best bet is $2 ticket for all day on and off pass along the River Front. Our local bus transit station is 6 blocks away and can take riders down the coast or out to the Lewis & Clark Nat'l Park. Other Things to NoteYou'll find Astoria has a rich history, wonderful period architecture, and great places to dine, I will have current menus available for dining ideas. Although we don't provide a traditional breakfast, we do give you a "starter breakfast" with locally roasted coffee from the Astoria Coffee Company featuring the "Goonie Blend," tea, fruit, juices and usually some kind of baked goods, English muffins or bagels.
