We couldn’t be more excited to welcome guests back to our cozy condos offered at our Oregon beach rentals.

With rigorous cleaning procedures, contactless check-in, and other features to enhance your safety and convenience, guests can simply arrive at the coast and unlock one of our beach vacation rentals. Lincoln City is, of course, a great destination for families of all sizes, but the Oregon coast is also ideal for couples and small groups of friends looking to getaway. Today’s blog post will highlight one of A1 Beach Rentals’ most charming (and potentially romantic) beach condo rentals that friends, couples, and small families can escape to this summer: The Nantucket house.

We hope to welcome you soon and look forward to hearing more positive reviews from our guests as the summer continues! Book your stay today, and get away from it all with a beach house rental along the wide-open spaces of the Oregon Coast.

Cozy Charm and Rustic Romance at The Nantucket

The Nantucket is located at 1724 NW Harbor Avenue in Lincoln City and can accommodate up to four guests with one bedroom, one bathroom, and a cozy sleeper sofa in the open living space. You’ll also find much more than the basics here, especially when compared to other beach condo rentals. Lincoln City visitors will enjoy all the quaint details of this refurbished 1927 beach home such as original wainscoting walls and white trim, as well as all modern amenities and luxuries such as a hot tub with beautiful views. When it’s cold outside you can be nice and toasty indoors, enjoying a drink next to the fireplace, but when it’s warm outside you can walk through the French doors and find a barbeque on the fabulous lower deck. And if sunbathing is your thing, head straight up to the second observation deck to soak in as many rays as possible.  

One of the best things about staying at The Nantucket is the ideal location. The beach is only a block away, so you can be on the sand in minutes, but you’re still tucked away when you retreat back to your home base. This condo is also close to the Chinook Winds Casino Resort, a variety of shops and shopping centers, restaurants for takeout and/or dining, and grocery stores where you can pick up a few things if you prefer to cook from the comfort of your beach rental. With such a wonderful bounty of local produce, fine wines, and coastal catches, foodies are definitely in their element here.

A Few Final Notes to Make the Most of Your Stay

The Nantucket comes fully furnished and is equipped with a variety of convenient amenities such as a washer/dryer and a full kitchen featuring a microwave, oven, stovetop, refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, cookware, crockpot, utensils, and more. You can also rest assured that all linens have been washed and all surfaces have been cleaned before your arrival. A1 Beach Rentals has always taken cleaning seriously, but the team is working harder than ever to sanitize every surface and not only meet but exceed, the CDC’s Covid-19 guidelines. We hope to welcome you soon and look forward to hearing more positive reviews from our guests as the summer continues! Book your stay today, and get away from it all with a beach house rental along the wide-open spaces of the Oregon Coast.

Dazzling Days and Starry Nights Await at Big Oregon Beach House Rental

A1 Beach Rentals is overjoyed to welcome guests to all of our Oregon beach house rentals once again. With the reopening of lodgings throughout the state, including beach vacation rentals in Lincoln City, vacationers have a variety of options to get away from home and enjoy the wonders of the coast. The Starry Night on NW Jetty Avenue is one of the largest and most elegant properties available for rent on the coast of Lincoln City, Oregon. This 4-bedroom, 4.5-bath home can sleep as many as 11 people with the ocean just a short stroll away, making it perfect for family reunions and larger groups looking to enjoy the beach for a few days. Keep reading and imagine yourself in this massively dazzling property!

We’ve always been serious about cleaning, but A1 Beach Rentals is working harder than ever to make sure our properties are clean and sanitary. You can rest assured that your Oregon Beach House or Condo rental is spotless!

The Beach is the Always the Biggest Draw

The Starry Night offers views of the white water and sandy beaches only 200 yards away at the Roads End State Park. This state park features a nearly hidden cove just north of Lincoln City with space for strolling, views of rocky islands, fascinating tidepools, and access to the headland. With smaller crowds and less wind compared to beaches in the center of town, this is truly a hidden gem in the Lincoln City area. Just make sure to head back from the lowest cove area before the end of low tide so you don’t get stuck for a few hours! The rustic and concealed nature of Roads End is all part of this beach’s charm, though. 

A Bed for Every Beach Lover – and Much More

This expansive coastal estate offers much more than easy access to the beach. As many as three cars can park at the property and even the entrance and front door are inviting for guests upon arrival. From there, visitors walk into the main floor featuring a living room and fully stocked, gourmet kitchen with a dining table that seats 10 in addition to a pub table with two chairs and three stools at the kitchen island. The upper level features four stunning bedrooms including one king bedroom with a full bathroom and jetted tub, another king bedroom with a shower in the bathroom, a queen bedroom with a shower in the bathroom, and an additional suite with three twin bunks. A total of four bathrooms are found on the upper level, as well as a washer and dryer. A convenient half bath is found downstairs near the living room that features a gas fireplace and sleeper sofa for additional guests. But that’s not all. Wi-Fi is available throughout and the living room is equipped with multiple televisions featuring HDTV and a DVD player, while the game room features air hockey, ping pong, and a pool table. The deck featuring a hot tub with ocean views is like the icing on the cake.  

A Final Note on Ensuring the Safety of Every Guest We’ve always been serious about cleaning, but A1 Beach Rentals is working harder than ever to make sure our properties are clean and sanitary. You can rest assured that your rental is spotless whether you book one of our cozy beach condo rentals or one of our larger estates like The Starry Night. We make sure every surface is sanitized and all linens are replaced, and we strive to exceed the CDC’s COVID-19 guidelines. It’s also important to note that Roads Ends State Park is asking visitors not to travel from too far away to enjoy the beach, to turn around if the beaches seem too crowded, and – as always – to pack out all trash that is brought into the park. If we all do our bit, we can enjoy the beaches, leave them as we left them, and keep each other safe. We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Oregon Beach House Rentals are the Perfect Base for Agate Hunting

Now that our Lincoln City Oregon beach house rentals are open for visitors to Lincoln City once again, agate hunters and tidepool explorers have the perfect home-base to discover the Oregon Coast’s natural wonders. Lincoln City is home to 7½ miles of scenic beaches that are known for agates. Nearby Depoe Bay is also a haven for those hunting these magnificent semiprecious stones. And while you’re trying to search for a few treasures to take home, why not explore Lincoln City’s tidepools? Outdoor activities such as these are wonderful ways for individuals, couples, and families to get out and explore nature while still practicing social distancing from the home-base of our meticulously cleaned and sanitized beach home and condo vacation rentals. Lincoln City is waiting, and it’s never been a better time to become an agate hunter!

Oregon Beaches are Officially Open!
Honored guests, we are overjoyed to announce our beachfront
homes & condos are available to book.

Agates: Semiprecious Stones from the Sea

Semiprecious stones include such natural wonders such as amber, aquamarine, emerald, jade, onyx, opal, pearl, topaz, turquoise, and many others. While most semiprecious stones are formed on land, others – such as pearls – are formed in the sea. Agates are unique because they are formed on land within holes inside volcanic rocks (similar to moganite and quartz), but because they form near the sea, they are first released into the water from nearby crumbling rocks. Then it’s only a matter of time until they wash up onto the shores of Oregon and Northern California. While most agates aren’t worth a whole lot of money, they are stunning to look at and can be used to make unique pieces of jewelry and other beautiful creations. It’s also just a whole lot of fun to hunt for them!

Not All Beaches Are Equal for Agate Hunters

Lincoln City has long been known as one of the best places on the Oregon Coast to hunt for agates, coral, and jasper. Even the experts at Oregon State University agree. With lodging options ranging from cozy beach condo rentals to vacation homes that sleep 16 people, your whole crew will also be accommodated in Lincoln City. If you’re looking to visit a few areas in your search for agates, Lincoln City is also a great place to start. Your best bet is to head south and stop at Beverly Beach and Moolack Beach (which are also known for fossilized mollusk and clamshells) before continuing on to Depoe Bay and Newport. Depoe Bay is a particularly good place for a day trip, as it is also known as the “Whale Watching Capital of the Oregon Coast.” But you don’t need to leave Lincoln City and its 7½ miles of pristine beaches to see all sorts of sea creatures and find all sorts of sea treasures that have washed ashore. You could spend days just exploring this particular stretch of coastline. Lincoln City’s intertidal zones, where tide pools thrive, are also particularly wondrous around Roads End State Park in the north side of town. While there are still plenty of bookings available, it’s a good idea to act fast if you want to get your perfect beach house rental in Lincoln City this summer. The secret will soon be out that this is one of the best places to get away from it all on the Oregon Coast. Whether you’re most looking forward to hunting for agates, exploring the tidepools, or just enjoying a cool beverage from a hot tub with ocean views on the deck of your rental, A1 Beach Rentals has got you covered. Call (503) 232-5984 or simply book online today.

June Brings Good News for Oregon Beachgoers

The beaches officially reopened in Lincoln City in May and lodging was able to resume as of June 1, making it possible for visitors to return to our vacation homes and beach condo rentals. Lincoln City not only saw beaches reopen during this phase, but many parks and recreation areas reopened as well. Restaurants, bars, and retail outlets are also able to welcome diners, drinkers, and shoppers once again with new guidelines in place. The reopening guidelines for such businesses include spacing tables 6 feet apart, limiting the number of people inside at a time, and requiring employees to wear face masks. These added precautions should ensure a safe, healthy, and fun summer for locals and visitors alike on the Oregon coast.

New Lodging Protocols to Ensure Your Health & Safety

New sanitation and social distancing protocols were put in place when lodging and other businesses were allowed to reopen in June, and we are committed to meeting and exceeding these guidelines. Rooms are to be left empty for 24 hours between visitors, and vacation rentals are to be meticulously cleaned and sanitized before a new guest arrives. The cleaning staff is wearing masks and gloves, sanitizing all surfaces with CDC/ EPA approved disinfectants, washing linens with approved disinfectants at recommended temperatures, and replacing all unused linen and terry before a new guest arrives. We are also offering remote check-in to encourage social distancing. Your health and safety are our priority.

Keep reading to learn more about Lincoln City’s fascinating history and find inspiration for your next visit.

Oregon Beaches Officially Open June 1st!
Honored guests we are overjoyed to announce our beachfront homes & condos are available to book.

Lincoln City’s Native American History

The Oregon Coast was originally home to many tribes that are now part of the 27-member Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians along with other Native American tribes and bands that once lived between Northern California and southwest Washington. When the Coast (Siletz) Reservation was established in 1855, it included part of modern-day Lincoln City. These 27 tribes spoke numerous languages, including the Clatsop dialect of Chinook, Coos, Shasta, Siuslaw, Takelma, Tillamook, and many others. Some of these names might be familiar if you live in the Pacific Northwest or have ever visited our Oregon beach house rentals. Lincoln City locals and visitors should also recognize the name of Siletz Bay.

The Communities Before Lincoln City’s Incorporation

Lincoln City did not exist until 1965 when the unincorporated communities of Delake, Oceanlake, and Taft joined with the nearby towns of Cutler City and Nelscott, all of which were nestled around Lincoln City’s current main street (Highway 101). Homesteaders began arriving in the area as early as the 1880s, though, and Taft (named after our 27th President, William H. Taft) established its post office in 1906. Delake was founded some years after and established its post office in 1924, only to be reestablished as Oceanlake Post Office in 1927. The odd-sounding name of Delake is meant to mimic local Finnish community members’ pronunciation of nearby Devil’s Lake. The former town of Nelscott also had a unique name, which was a combination of the founders’ surnames, Nelson and Scott. The Nelscott Reef is still famed as one of the best spots to surf along the Pacific Coast. Cutler City, which was located on the east shore of Siletz Bay, was the biggest established town in the area that later became Lincoln City. Mr. and Mrs. George Cutler of Dallas founded the community in the early 20th century, supposedly after Chief Charles “Charley” DePoe of the Siletz Tribe sold the property to George Cutler. The town established a post office in 1930 that served the community until Lincoln City was formed.

The Modern History of Lincoln City, Oregon

Each of these historic communities had its own annual events and local culture, and there was even some competition among them for tourists and trade. They all needed local services such as police and firefighters, though, and while it seemed to make sense to combine and pool these resources, many people did not want to give up their local post office and unique heritage. That’s why they needed to come up with a new, unifying name when the towns and communities did finally incorporate, rather than using any of the five existing names. They held a contest to choose one and school children submitted the name of Lincoln City. It seemed like the best choice when the city was incorporated on March 3, 1965.

History of Glass Floats on the Beach

You probably know about Glass Floats on the Beach if you’ve ever stayed in one of our vacation homes or beach condo rentals. Lincoln City has not only been a hotspot for beaches, but also for arts and crafts such as glassblowing, since the 20th century. When that century was drawing to a close, a local artist decided to use this medium to celebrate the coming millennium with a nod to the Oregon Coast’s past. Japanese fishing boats of bygone eras once used beautiful blue and green glass fishing floats that often washed up on the shores of the Oregon Coast, and visitors in those eras used to love hunting for the glass treasures that would wash ashore. Eventually, they were all found … until 1999, that is, when Lincoln City sponsored the Finders Keepers project where local artists produced stunning blown-glass floats that were “hidden” around the beach. It was so popular and attracted so many tourists that it became part of the city’s local traditions. The beaches will be a great reason to visit Lincoln City once they reopen, and we look forward to welcoming you to our beach house rentals! Until then, this area’s fascinating history is worth learning more about. It’s easy to see why so many people wanted to live in this beautiful part of the Central Oregon Coast.

Top Eight Hiking Trails in and Around Lincoln City, Oregon

The team at A1 Beach Rentals looks forward to welcoming you to our beach house rentals again once we’re on the other side of this. The truth is, we all need a few things to look forward to in the not-so-distant future. Hiking and beachcombing on the Oregon Coast are two great activities to look forward to because they are out in the open air where you can still socially distance while enjoying nature. Beaches and hiking trails throughout the Central Oregon Coast might be closed right now, but once they are reopened, we can all look forward to a long walk in a beautiful setting. In addition to the 7½ miles of pristine coastline (which is within walking distance from most of our beach condo rentals and vacation homes), there are also numerous hiking trails in and around Lincoln City, Oregon. Here are eight of the top hiking destinations in and around Lincoln City that are worth exploring once the trails reopen:

Dear Honored Guests –
We look forward to being on the other side of this and hosting you at our Oregon beach homes or condos!

1. Agnes Creek Open Space Loop. This moderately easy, 1.7-mile trail takes less than an hour to complete at a leisurely pace. The loop stretches through a serene forest setting and allows dogs as long as they are on a leash.

2. Alder Island Nature Trail. You can find this trail right within Lincoln City. The easy, 0.9-mile trail winds past Siletz Bay and can be completed in about 20 minutes plus the time it talks to walk from one of our beach vacation rentals. Oregon walkers of all ability levels can enjoy this trail.

3. Cutler Wetlands Open Space Loop. The Cuter Wetlands Open Space features an easy, breezy 0.6-mile trail that is great for bird-watching or just enjoying a quick walk through nature in a forest setting. The walk can be completed in approximately 15 minutes.

4. Devils Lake Boardwalk Trail. Mere minutes from downtown Lincoln City, you can find yourself in the Devil’s Lake State Recreation Area and/or Devil’s Lake State Park. The recreation area is where you’ll find the campgrounds with access to the lake for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, boating, and waterskiing. You can also take a lovely, 10-minute walk along the boardwalk with nature and water on either side of you. Just remember to watch out for the wildlife sharing this space with you!

5. Drift Creek Falls Trail. If you’re looking for a somewhat longer trail once the parks reopen, the Drift Creek Falls Trail in Siuslaw National Forest might be an ideal option for you. This 2.6-mile walk can be completed in about an hour and 20 minutes at a fairly leisurely pace. Just make sure to slow down enough to enjoy the beauty of this national forest!

6. God’s Thumb (via The Knoll). More experienced hikers may prefer the God’s Thumb trail, which is also located in Siuslaw National Forest with parking at Roads End State Recreation Site. The 4.4-mile, out-and-back walk is considered moderate in difficulty due to a steep climb at the end, but many people do take their children, and dogs are allowed on leashes. It is important to be cautious on this trail, as slips and falls have occurred in the past. 

7. Kirtsis Park Walk. This is a great trail if you’re looking for an easy, forest park walk that starts right at the edge of Lincoln City. The 1.6-mile, out-and-back walk takes you through a lush, green setting and is just long enough to feel like you’ve got a good bit of exercise in.

8. Spyglass Ridge Open Space. Another relatively easy but absolutely stunning walk near Lincoln City is the Spyglass Ridge Open Space. Most of the 1.3-mile trail takes you through a forested setting, but if you take your time and keep exploring, you will find yourself with a stunning view of the ocean. The walk can be completed in less than 45 minutes and dogs are allowed on leashes. Our beach house rentals will be waiting for you once all the parks and other facilities reopen. You can rest assured that you will find an exceedingly clean, sterile, cozy, and comfortable place to enjoy the Central Oregon Coast upon arrival. We look forward to welcoming you to our home-away-from-home in Lincoln City again soon!
