Quiet and close to everything
This sweet little house was just what I was hoping for and full of wonderful joys. The neighborhood is walkable, bike riding, trail walking all just outside. Woodsy trail hikes are very close by. The Astoria Community Center welcomed me to fitness classes at a price I couldn't believe- $6 for a drop in. The kitchen of the house was my cooking delight. There are REAL knives and CAST IRON skillets! Wow. I found an Oster blender and made smoothies every day. The front room was where I spent most of my time, sitting in the chair in the front window, overlooking the river, reading, playing guitar. We also hung out in the front yard during the sunny spells. The backyard was private, green and relaxing. The bedrooms are beautifully colored, the beds and bedding very comfortable. The owner seemed to bend over backward making adjustments we requested for our reservation in advance. She was extremely kind with my requests. The only snafu was arriving with out the lockbox code, but VRBO called her, she called me and we were in the house about 20 minutes later. Overall, I very much hope to stay here again the next time my husband goes fishing out of Astoria! It was the perfect, wished for place for me.
