Week 8: Yachats and Waldport:

Road Trip to Yachats/Waldport – Best Places to Stay, See, Eat and Discover
Stunning coastline views, breathtaking sites like Cape Perpetua, Thor’s well and sunsets over the Alsea Bay Bridge. Award-winning craft beer, popular local restaurants and coffee shops and a bustling farmer’s market – the beloved beach towns of Yachats and Waldport have something for everyone. Tucked in to the southern-most part of Lincoln County these towns are slightly less frequented than larger cities to the North, and that makes all the difference.

Week 7: Luxury Homes in All Directions:

Take your Oregon Vacation to the Next Level with a Stay at Top Luxury Homes in Central Oregon and On the Oregon Coast.
How about a Summer road trip with luxury as your destination? A scenic drive through Oregon’s natural beauty to a private, professionally cleaned vacation home that looks like it is out of the pages of a magazine? Our answer to both questions is an enthusiastic yes, please!
