Property Information:

Al Blodgett was a pillar in the Newberg community. He served 50 years with the Newberg Fire Department, helped run the local Toy & Joy program, and helped fund the city Christmas lights and decorations. Al also helped organize the Newberg Old Fashioned Festival each year & actively involved with the chamber of commerce, but he also ran a successful Drive-In for 18 years. Al's Drive-In was a well loved place where many went to enjoy a meal out. In 1966, Blodgett opened the restaurant and had two topless mermaids painted to be a part of the sign. Being a small and conservative town, these mermaids created quite a controversy, with many demanding they be removed or covered up. Being the stubborn man he was, Blodgett refused and instead settled on a less detailed version of the breasts to be painted. While it didn't please everyone, it was enough to allow the mermaids to remain until Blodgett closed the diner in 1984 when he became a full time firefighter. For 18 years, families and friends gathered at that Drive-In, and many teens had their first job at Al's Drive-In. It has become a beloved piece of Newberg's history and a big part of Al's legacy.

Nice professional stay
5/5 stars
Clear communication throughout the stay including resolving an issue with the wifi. Well supplied, professional with bathroom, cooking, dishwashing supplies. Older home but well maintained in a quiet neighborhood. Covered carport is your main access to the home. Not super obvious from the listing but there is a second bedroom with a sofa/futon about the size of a full sized bed (ok for 2 kids but a bit cozy for 2 adults).
