We have greatly enjoyed our week in your cottage. The views are spectacular, the proximity to the bay front so convenient, and the quality of the house and furnishings beautiful, comfortable and welcoming. We only wish we could stay longer.

Great house - great location

  • 5 of 5

It's called a cottage but it is so much more. It has everything you need to spend a week or much longer. The beds and furniture are very comfortable. Everything is in perfect working order and very clean. Not always the case with rentals.

Very easy walk to the bay front with nice restaurants and shops. So close, in fact, we could hear the sea lions from the deck.

VERY easy to recommend this place.

Fantastic home in perfect location.Can walk everywhere.Great bay and bridge views!

  • 5 of 5

Property was neat and clean as advertised.In quite neighborhood with great Bay views.

Watched boats coming in from the ocean every day from the picture windows.Close walk

to a lot of restaurants.King bed was exceptionally comfortable, and the house had a lot of

room and everything was updated.We stayed 2 months and it was great.Great neighbors,

and easy access to the beach and coastal highway.Plenty of kitchen stuff and great internet

service. Basement had a bar and pool table and gas fireplace was updated.

Stayed at a lot of VRBO rentals over the last 10 years and this was among the best ever.

A gem in a unique setting!

  • 5 of 5

Bridge View Cottage is truly a gem in a unique setting being ideally situated within walking distance of the Newport Bay Front and just a very short distance from Yaquina Bay State Park. The former is a great place for shopping and eating; the latter, a great place to walk and to catch a sunset photo of Conde McCollough's Yaquina Bay (Newport) Bridge. In addition, there is very easy access from the cottage to either 101 N (to Yaquina Head and points north) or 101 S (to the Oregon Coast Aquarium, OSU's Hatfield Marine Science Center, and points south).

If you are not in the mood to travel on a particular day, the view of Yaquina Bay is a good one with lots of activity including the nearly constant arrivals and departures of Newport's fishing fleet, NOAA's Pacific Fleet, the US Coast Guard, and all manner of things nautical.

The cottage is clean, well appointed, and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our 30-day stay at Bridge View Cottage and would not hesitate to return.

Spotlessly clean. Great location. View of the bay and bridge, and short walk to historic district with shops and restaurants or fishing charters.

Heart of Newport and nicely appointed!

  • 5 of 5

If you're on the coast, Newport is about as central a place as you can be. And while numerous Embarcadeo owners are offering up their gray-shingled places for rent, Craig and Lisa's home is a MUCH better idea overall (provided you're not the party crowd...)

The home is cut into the bluff overlooking the Newport bayfront literally a block up. The two decks pictured (especially the west deck) allow for a pretty special view of the bay and the bridge - it's easy to take your meal outside and just watch birds, seals/sea lions and boats aplenty.

But once you're inside, the hardwood floors, comfortable furniture, and decor of the place make it feel more like you're in a home-home (rather than a vacation home) Both bedrooms are exactly as captured in the pictures, and as it is an older home, the owners have taken steps to make sure there's storage for your personal belongings (as a converted media cabinet in the master bedroom serves as an additional closet)

Although not a party home, the downstairs has a top-shelf pub setting with a wet bar recessed off a great room featuring a good pool table and dart board. Although I'm no pool expert, I've played enough to know when a table, balls, and cues have been abused - not the case here. Decent 'house cues', a 9-ball rack, & even a flat screen for sports round out the feel. Round out the pub feel with a natural-gas BBQ just outside this room...

It wouldn't be a review without mentioning the potential caveats. Note these are not negatives - rather, things one should be aware of if you're staying in this home. 1) Kitchen - Overall very bright with newer appliances and a solid array of tools/pots/pans for cooking. Do note that you will need to purchase/bring your own basic needs (oil, sugar, flour for instance) if you cook from scratch. Cleaning materials also there (the first home to ever have a dish brush), but bring some extra 13-gallon garbage bags. 2) Bathroom - Like everything else in the home = nice and updated, but be advised there's ONLY one. Plenty of room in there and such (decent sized shower, as well), but with 4 people in the house - it can get busy 3) Parking - On the street outside the home, but for suburb folk used to secured garage/d-way parking - do know you may be challenging hordes of Newport tourists forced to park 'up the hill' from the bayfront (at night, though... never a problem)

A great week overall in a rock-solid place the owners clearly have pride in; thanks again!

With bridge and bay views from almost every window in the house and from both decks you will find yourself relaxing while taking in the many sights and sounds of the bay such as bald eagles, harbor seals, fishing vessels and the historic bay bridge. During winter months storm watching is a favorite past time of the locals. Grab a hot toddy, curl up with someone special and watch as spectacular storms march across the bay or challenge your partner to billiards and darts in the game room. Also enjoy the beautiful night time views. As night falls, the harbor comes alive with lights dancing on the water. 'Truly a mellowing experience'
