WWII Sub Lookout Could be Your Next Beach Rental!

The Submarine- Sleeps 2-4 guests (2 queen rooms). Sweeping Oceanfront views from North- South. Beach access and glass enclosed hot tub perched overlooking Surf & Sand on a quiet beach. Used as Lookout during WWII .Wifi….

Historic Home Above the Sea

The Submarine is a two-bedroom property with its own private entrance, deck, and hot tub that are separate from those of the Anchor condo, which is the master suite that sits above the garage. During WWII, the entire house was used as a submarine lookout due to its strategic views of the oceanfront. It is also possible to book the two attached properties together as the Anchor and Sub House. With two queen bedrooms, a comfortable living room, sun room leading to a private deck, and recently remodeled kitchen, the Submarine alone offers plenty of room for four people to live in luxury. You can step outside to the private, glass-walled hot tub or enjoy the sunset and views of surfers at Nelscott wave from the comfort of a deck chair. When you’re ready to hit the sand and surf yourself, it’s only 90 stairs down from the deck (with resting benches along the way) to an almost private beach with tidepools to explore and plenty of picnic tables and BBQs. 

All the Amenities of Home and More!

The Submarine is fully furnished and ready to go with linens, towels, a starter kit of paper products, cookware, utensils, ironing board, washer/dryer, and a full kitchen that includes a stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, and toaster.

Beautiful Lincoln City Outside Your Door

Being close to the ocean is, of course, one of the main reasons people book beach vacation rentals. Oregon is dotted with all sorts of beautiful beaches along its west coast, and Lincoln City is famous for 7 ½ miles of the most stunning coastline in the state. You would not be unhappy if all you did during your stay was go to the beach. You can take a walk and visit a lighthouse, or go beachcombing, biking, boating, kite-flying, tide-pooling, whale-watching, crabbing at Siletz Bay, or deep-sea fishing at Depoe Bay. The town of Lincoln City is full of surprises worth straying from the beach for, though. The Chinook Winds Casino Resort, Lincoln City Outlet Mall, gift shops, craft shops, antique shops, glass blowing studios, art galleries, museums, a golf course, a miniature golf course, a wide variety of restaurants, and other attractions are all nearby.

Celebrating 20 Years of Finders Keepers on the Beaches of Lincoln City, OR

Looking for an excuse to get away to one of A1’s fabulous beach house rentals? Lincoln City, Oregon residents are celebrating the 20th anniversary of Finders Keepers, a tradition in which “Float Fairies” hide blown-glass floats along the city’s beaches in a nod to the colorful spheres that used to float ashore from Japanese fishing boats in the days of yore. The “20 on the 20th” celebration kicks off on February 20th with a special drop of 20 limited edition glass floats, which will be a recurring event on the 20th of each month until May. If you’re itching to get away to Lincoln City’s 7½ miles of beautiful coastline, there’s never been a better time to book your beach vacation rentals!

It’s all part of the fun and a good excuse to visit this awe-inspiring stretch of coastline in Lincoln City, Oregon.

20 Years of Glass Floats on the Beach

Although Finders Keepers was first imagined by a local blown-glass artist in 1997, it was not until 1999 that Lincoln City sponsored the initial season of glass floats on the beach. The artist was inspired by tales and images of lustrous, blue and green, blown-glass floats that used to wash up on Oregon’s shores from Japanese fishing crews that used them to keep their nets afloat. The project was meant to mark the coming millennium and attracted tourists from across the country. Now, 20 years on, the tradition has cemented itself as a part of Lincoln City’s unique local culture and is sure to remain so for many years to come.

What to Expect on the Hunt for Glass Floats

The glass floats hidden on Lincoln City’s beaches are meant to be found, with their bright colors and inconspicuous positioning below the beach embankment and above the high tide line. The Float Fairies come along several times a day during daylight hours between October and May to place blown-glass floats made by local artisans in fairly conspicuous spots where visitors like you might find them. Barring extreme and unsafe weather conditions, these drops go on as scheduled rain or shine, and there are also special drops to commemorate holidays and other celebrations. If you’re lucky enough to find one, just make sure to register it online through the Explore Lincoln City website. You’ll be able to register your float with its unique number, learn about the artist, and get a Certificate of Authenticity.

More Special Glass Float Drops in 2019

The fairies drop a few floats every day during Finders Keepers season, and 20 limited edition Explore Lincoln City floats will be dropped on the 20th of each month for the rest of the season, so there’s always a chance to get your hands on one. There are a few other special drop dates to look out for as well if you’re thinking of booking a vacation home or one of A1’s cozy beach condo rentals. Lincoln City Float Fairies will be doing a special drop of 50 pink, red, and white floats February 16-17 for Valentine’s Day; 300 extra floats between March 23rd and April 7th for Spring Break; 50 Earth floats April 21-22 for Earth Day; 50 extra floats May 11-12 for Mother’s Day; and 50 red, white, and blue floats May 25-27 for Memorial Day.  Even if you don’t find a glass float on the beach, there are many galleries and blown-glass studios in Lincoln City where you can purchase an unnumbered glass float or other piece of beautiful glass art. It’s all part of the fun and a good excuse to visit this awe-inspiring stretch of coastline in Lincoln City, Oregon.

Winter Rates Not Only Reason To Visit Oregon Beach Rentals in October

October is an ideal time to book one of the fabulous Oregon beach house rentals along the coast of Lincoln City, as rates are entering the lower-priced winter season. The summer crowds are also fading to memory as the calm breezes and warm sands remain, making this perhaps the perfect month to stay in one of our beach vacation rentals. Oregon is chockfull of indoor and outdoor pursuits to choose from during the fall and winter months as well. But if you’re still not sold, here are five of the top reasons why you should stay on the Central Oregon Coast this October:

Ideal Walking and Hiking

During the ‘tourist’ months, walking and hiking trails also tend to be busier. On top of that, the weather can sometimes be too hot for enjoying more strenuous walks in the direct sunlight.

There are many ways to enjoy the bounty, from pumpkin picking to cider sampling. The Culinary Center in Lincoln City is one of the best places to gain a real appreciation of the food and drink that this areas has to offer, with its series of cooking classes and demonstrations complete with wine and food for one price.
