About this listing
Please understand that this is a room in our home. It is basically an enclosed deck on the river side of the house. Room includes antique, full-sized spindle bed, dining table, two comfortable chairs and couch with pull-out bed. Room overlooks the Columbia River with views of the bridge and distant ocean. There is a wood burning stove to keep you extra warm on cold, rainy nights, and a small balcony off the room to allow you to get an even finer view on the rare days it's warm enough to sit outside.
Private bathroom is two rooms away, through the kitchen and a corner of the living room, and includes claw-footed tub with handheld shower.
Guests can have access to shared kitchen, library, grand piano, and extensive classical music CD collection if desired.
Downtown Astoria is an easy walk away, with a healthy, aerobic return challenge. Bus depot is within walking distance, as is access to the sightseeing trolley.
Price includes a 9% room tax levied by the City of Astoria
I am a semi-retired private piano teacher, married to David Myers, a photographer. We love to travel and photograph nature with a special interest in butterflies. I like to create art quilts and we have a home filled with various examples of our work. We love learning new things, trying new foods and recipes, and, in fact, are just starting down a new semi-vegan diet which has produced some satisfying results. We enjoy meeting new people. A good conversation and a fine glass of wine is our idea of a perfect way to spend an evening.
David plays chamber music with a string quartet with rehearsals every other week. I enjoy accompanying soloists and just gave a house concert with two flutists in mid-September. We hike a fair amount and love to tent camp. We have just returned from a four week trip to Colorado and Utah where we went rafting on the Green River, camped in Rocky Mountain National Park, and stayed in a cabin in Zion National Park.
My husband has one more year of teaching photography at the local college. After that we plan to see as much of the world as we can. In the meantime we hope to share our beautiful view and town with as many people as possible.
