|Primary bedroom (w/ en-suite bathroom) King|
This charming 1950’s one bedroom, one bathroom cottage is on Sheridan Street in the heart of Newberg in Oregon’s wine country. Newly renovated with original charm, the cottage is within a short walking distance to downtown tasting rooms and restaurants, yet private and serene at night.
Freshly updated in 2017 with modern, upscale fixtures and finishes, we tried to keep the cottage charm while creating a space that’s perfectly comfortable for a long weekend, or more in wine country. Almost everything’s new here except the charming wood floors, cute niches, coved ceilings and arched doorways. Multiple large windows (new and double-paned) in each room, and a small frosted one in the bath, allow for lots of natural light and a feeling of openness beyond the cozy 720 square foot size.
Just inside the cottage’s front door, the cozy living room has a top-of-the-line custom sofa with a memory foam sleeper that feels like a real bed; sofa bed linens can be found in the hall closet. Plush navy velvet ottomans double as a coffee table, and the flat screen TV is equipped with streaming capability with your own subscriptions. Board games and a desk are available for work and play.
To play music from the living room speaker (it’s under the TV), make sure your device is connected to the wifi network, download the SONOS app and follow the prompts. You’ll need to connect to your personal music accounts (Spotify, Pandora, etc.) or music files on your device.
Finally, in the dining room just left of the front door, we’ve created a mini mud room with hooks and a shoe rack for corralling your outdoor gear. An umbrella is available for use during your stay; please ensure it makes its way back to the hook before you check out.
The large bedroom has a king size modern farmhouse style bed with an amazingly comfortable medium-firm gel memory foam mattress, 100% cotton sheets, a plush down-like duvet and tons of pillows of varying firmness. USB and pronged outlets are easily accessible at each side of the bed for charging your devices. A huge closet and vintage dresser will hold all your things, and a velvet bench and luggage rack make packing and unpacking a breeze. We’ve supplied high quality no-slip hangers in the closet of each bedroom, 10 in each. Please make sure to leave them here for other guests’ use.
The modern cottage-style bathroom has been completely redone with a beautifully tiled shower, rain shower head and marble-topped wood vanity. A frosted window adds natural light while maintaining privacy, and multiple light fixtures make it easy to get ready on cloudy mornings. Ultra-fluffy towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap, cotton swabs and an upscale real-deal hair dryer are all there ready for you to enjoy.
The kitchen is huge and beautifully outfitted with brand-new everything, including a teak eat-in bar counter, 5-burner gas range, and sleek wine fridge. Everything you need to cook meals is included, down to the olive oil, flour and kosher salt: just add your groceries. (The 24-hour Thriftway is blocks away, and has all the usual needs and many organic choices; Ray’s is a great place to pick up avocados, other produce items, and some great Mexican and Central American goods.) You are welcome to use anything you find in the kitchen, including the dry goods, spices and seasonings in the pull out pantry.
The laundry room has a full size washer dryer, free & clear detergent, an iron and ironing board. Accessed via a door in the laundry room, the beautifully landscaped back garden has a Weber natural gas grill, small dining area, and an herb garden you are welcome to make use of for meals (or cocktails, perhaps?). The grill runs on natural gas, and is permanently connected – no tank refilling needed. Grill-specific utensils are kept in the kitchen. You’re welcome to any of herbs in the cedar planter: lemon verbena, rosemary, thyme and mint. Please clip sparingly and only take what you will use, so that others may also enjoy. There are scissors for this purpose in the kitchen.
Parking for two cars in the driveway is available. The back yard connects with the Bungalow next door, which is also available for rent together or separately, creating the potential for 3 bed 3 baths between them.
