Veterans Day Holiday

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Guesthouse. A cute and quaint place near the beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants. We will recommend to our family and friends. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

What a great break!!

What a wonderful vacation! Purely by chance, we found the American Classic Guesthouse online as we were looking for a place to go for a much-needed break. We made our decision based on the terrific reviews, which quite frankly were not nearly as good as the experience itself. We booked the Guesthouse for 7 nights from October 20 to October 27, 2014...but ultimately we were so reluctant to leave that we extended our stay for an additional night. The surrounding area is fantastic. We spent every day of our stay outdoors enjoying the wild and wonderful fall weather, knowing that we would end each the warmth of the Guesthouse. If you're looking for a place where you can shed your every-day skin, this is the place. We will definitely return as soon as we get the chance. It's a 10 out of 10.

Great place to stay

We spent a week there from Oct 8 - 16. (Just got home) Nice weekly rate this time of year but you take your chances with the weather. We had a great time. The view out the cottage window or from deck is fantastic and the beach is close by. The cottage itself is fully equipped with kitchen stuff plus 2 TVs and a nice collection of DVDs if you're into a storm watching. The nieghbourhood is fun to walk around with interesting shops, pubs and restaurants. Driving up and down the coast provided many scenic opportunities for photographers like me and others as well. For huge waves and ocean views don't miss the Devils Punch Bowl park just north of Newport. Look to go arounh high tide for big waves. No regrets with this place.

Cute Beach Cottage - Responsive Owners

We just stayed at the American Classic Guesthouse this weekend and I can not say enough about how wonderful our visit was. The owners kept in close contact with us prior to the visit, provided a list of restaurants and even texted us to let us know the room was ready for an earlier check in than anticipated. This is what sets rentals apart from each other. Thank you!

Loved it!

We have 2 older kids and a small dog. The house was perfect! The view was great the yard was fenced for the dog. The beach was easy access. We walked to all the shops and out to eat. The place has everything including a washer and dryer. There were even fresh flowers for our arrival!

Better than expected!

My wife and I were hesitant to rent a beach house that we couldn't walk through or see exactly where it was located and situated. When we arrived after 8 hours of driving we found a great view, a perfect location with many places to eat or have a drink within 1 block, we have two kids under 10 that enjoyed the beach house as well. This was a perfect fit for a family of four. I hope we can vacation here again next year. Very clean and well equipped to prepare your own meals if you choose not to visit the local restaurants.

Thanks for your great review Leon!! We would be pleased to assist you with a return visit next year or any time. Happy Trails!! Jim & Lana Wetherill

Sweet Escape

We made a last minute reservation to stay at The American Classic Guesthouse and couldn't believe our luck. The guesthouse was very clean and exceedingly comfortable (soft bed & pillows!). The views are outstanding and the location is unbeatable. If you like wandering between the beach, coffee shops, bookstores and restaurants, you'll love this place.

Even Better than Expected

I had the pleasure/task of planning our honeymoon so my bride could focus on the last few details of our wedding. With a strong desire to make our first week together as good as possible, I read seemingly all the reviews of all the vacation options along the entire Oregon coast. Alright, maybe not ALL of them, but more than I count! As an Engineer, I could not help but create a selection matrix to help balance cost, travel time, local to dos, weather forecast and most importantly - location quality. A bit of head banging and finger wrangling later and this place took top spot. We were not let down. Better than any hotel I've ever stayed in and I've traveled quite a bit. Gorgeous view directly at the ocean with no obstructions. Local activities abound. Kite flying was fantastic. And most importantly, it made the woman of my dreams very very happy. I highly recommend this place for a romantic getaway, or non-romantic- or a solo getaway, or an i'm just driving through Newport and want to stop sort of getaway. You get the idea... Not only was the place great, but the owners are about as easy to deal with as they come. If this place isn't available, or you're traveling with a mob, it's worth looking into their other locations!

Owner's reply:

everything you need

We have stayed here before, last fall, and loved it...the place is so accommodating and has everything you could possibly need or want inside, but also is so close to the beach AND shops/restaurants in town. This time, we were on the last leg of a really long road trip and just needed a place to stay in Newport for one night. My 4-year old son saw the beach and asked us if we were staying in our "special blue beach house" again...so I thought, why not? I emailed the owners of the place and they had a vacancy! They got back to me right away and were so helpful and friendly. We love the guesthouse and hope to be back someday soon!

Seaside Cottage Charm with Panaramic Ocean View

We blew into the cottage with a spring gale, rain beating down, & a gorgeous storm filled sky, woke up the next morning to the sun shinning on the deck and offering fabulous views of a wide open Oregon Beach. We stayed in this cute little cottage for one week at the end of April and into the first two days of May. We enjoyed four sunny days and three cool wintery days with a bit of rain. It didn't matter if the days were sunny, cloudy, stormy, windy, cool or two days at 88 degrees in April, they were all great. The changing of weather even made it more scenic if that is even possible when you are spending a week at the beach, with views of the ocean just outside the huge glass windows. This cottage provided everything, down to the laundry detergent to leave the cottage after a week of fun with clean clothes. It was so homey, and everything so inviting and new I baked a big chocolate cake, during our stay, as the pots, baking pans, dishes, glasses, silverware, and supplies were abundant. It was such fun to walk to the beach and this beach was so surprising to us, as it is flat with compacted sand which makes walking for long walks so easy and enjoyable. I could walk barefoot for miles, husband walked in tennis shoes, and our little dog Mystery could run with abandonment. Our dog enjoyed the cottage as much as us, as there is a completely fenced yard in which our dog could just walk out the door and down a few steps and be in a grassy safe fenced yard to romp in, she had her own space too. The sunsets were amazing and we could sit on the deck, view the ocean and watch the sunset like a ball of melted butter on a stack of hot pancakes. Then the sky would turn orange for a half hour, after the sunset, and it was time for another walk on the beach. We took walks on the beach morning, noon, and night our entire stay. We ended our walks with strolls through the quaint little town of Nye. One of our favorite nights was going to the cute Irish Pub in town for pub grub, and being able to walk. I never really needed to get in the car, but my husband an avid golfer found time to go golfing three times at three different golf courses and enjoyed the courses all just wish his game did the golf courses justice. Oh well its a game, that my husband takes serious, but even with a bad score, the beauty of the courses, would bring him back to Newport again, especially if we stayed at this cute little cottage. We drove 1200 miles to get to this cottage & worth it

Great Views

This clean and cozy place right above the beach was perfect for the two of us and our two dogs. Three minutes from the beach. Walking distance to all the shops and Resturants. All we needed. We'll go back to this one.

Wonderful niche locale!

Home of Mo's Clam Chowder? Oregon Aquarium? Oregon State U. Maritime Center? NOT Nye Beach! This wonderful little pocket of super friendly folks and their charming businesses is tucked away along the ocean in the most charming locale filled with Victorian houses and buildings. The American Classic is one of those charming buildings which has been thoroughly modernized on the inside for great guest comfort and amenities. Had a ball! Great hosts! Will repeat and highly recommend to all.

Love love this little gem! 1 short block to walk on the beach. 1 short block to Nye beach area shopping and restaurants. Park the car! You can walk to everything that Nye Beach has to offer. Then there is the view!! Can not say enough about the place. We love it! We can not wait for a return visit.

Beach house at Nye Beach

For two of us and our little dogs, the guesthouse was just perfect. Outside its large windows is nothing but the ocean and a fenced, grassy yard. The location couldn't possibly be better as we walked all over Nye Beach for meals and shopping. The beach is a 2-3 minute walk away. The guesthouse is nicely appointed and well-furnished. One small example of the owners' thoughtfulness: when we arrived at night, there was a small LED light on a string beside the keybox so that I could see the combination. It shares no adjoining walls with any other building, so our dogs heard nothing to bark about. Peaceful. Serene. I see no reason for us to go anywhere else in the future.

Nye Beach Heaven!

We have stayed at fancier places, but never had a better time. The guest house is quaint and charming; you have everything you need. The bed is super comfortable and the house is very clean and cozy. It has a killer view and we really enjoyed sitting on the deck. There is a little fenced and gated yard that was perfect for our two small dogs. Once we got there we never even used the car once; we walked where ever we needed to go and that in itself is so relaxing. We absolutely love Nye Beach, it is eclectic, fun and artsy and the restaurants and pubs are fabulous! Try Cafe Mundo and Nana's Irish pub, for a fun meal. We had an excellent anniversary weekend, ad would definitely like to come back!

Amanda Hart

Perfect little place

We had a wonderful time at this little home, which had everything we needed for a few days of fun and relaxation. Despite the less than perfect weather, we had a beautiful view of the beach and were within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and bars that kept our spirits up! The home itself was beautiful and very comfortable. One word of advice--bring your own board games!

James & Lana Wetherill

Owner's reply:

Thanks for your gracious comments Amanda! Since this is our most recent listing we are still in the process of stocking it with more books, DVDs and board games. Please let us know when we can assist you with a return visit and you will see our latest additions. All Our Best!! Jim & Lana

Great view, restful stay!

I was here 3 nights for a personal retreat. The Guesthouse is cozy, clean, and in a safe area for a solo traveler. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen well-furnished for cooking. And then there's the ocean view, -- wonderful to enjoy with morning coffee and throughout my stay, when winter weather rolled in. The Guesthouse is walking distance to shops, restaurants and is right on the beach; yet only a few minutes' drive away from Newport's other beaches and attractions. I look forward to another retreat here!

Rhonda Costello


Great view

Surprised at how quaint and clean this house was. Private, location was near shops, restaurants and of course the beach. The house provided all amenities you would need even for an extended stay. Passing the info to friends and family.

Morgan Treasure

What a gem!

This great little cottage was exactly what we were looking for. Everything was sparkling clean, the kitchen is well-stocked and there are plenty of quality linens. The property is smack dab in the Nye Beach district, with all of its great local charm and only about 15 minutes by car from all of the major Newport attractions. The blazing fast wireless internet was great for our working-vacations needs. You'll certainly be seeing us again!

wonderful place to stay

we recently spent four days here and enjoyed every minute of it. It was very clean and refreshing and the décor was great. Would absolutely recommend this place. Close to the beach and very private. I also would put a curtain on the sliding door. If you are the one on the couch it makes you feel vulnerable. Though I have to admit I liked waking up at night and watching the boat lights. Thank you so much. Your place made our vacation

Wonderful Little Gem

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the American Classic Guesthouse. The unit is clean, well appointed and comfortable. The view from the deck is spectacular and while the location couldn't be more central, privacy is assured. My only suggestion would be a screen on the sliding door which would allow fragrant sea air flow! Lana and Jim were a pleasure to deal with. We hope to return.

James & Lana Wetherill

Owner's reply:

Hi Janis & Paul, thanks for your gracious review. As a side note, the screen door is on order but thanks for the heads up.

Debbie Talburt


Great place to stay

The guesthouse is a great place to stay! The house is very clean, it's stocked with just about everything you will need. Sitting on the deck you can look out over the ocean and watch whales or fishing boats. We will stay here again

Martha Daniels

lovely hideaway

The rental was extremely clean and very well stocked. We loved the queen bed's mattress, very comfortable. Access to beach is convenient. There is a lovely view of ocean from apartment and a nice deck. Unfortunately, the plastic deck chairs are uncomfortable. We parked our car and walked to neighborhood restaurants.

James & Lana Wetherill

Owner's reply:

Thanks for your 5 Star review Martha!
The Guesthouse is so well stocked and has a new memory foam bed since we use it ourselves. We fully agree with you on the deck chairs. They were not part of our complete remodel, until now that is! Lana just bought comfortable all-weather replacements so please let us know if we can assist you with a return visit to try them out for yourselves. Thanks for the advice & All Our Best!
Your Hosts, Jim & Lana Wetherill

Wonderful Oregon Coast Location

The Guest House was perfect for my wife and I during a 2 1/2 week stay in Nye Beach. It is very comfortably furnished and equipped with every possible amenity. The location and views of the ocean and beach from the home and the deck are spectacular. It is in a prime Nye Beach location but is wonderfully secluded because it faces the ocean and beach rather than the street. The owners couldn't have been more helpful for any questions that we had. It made for a truly memorable experience that we look forward to repeating in the future.

Shalina Chioino-Ross


Awesome time, Awesome House

Nye Beach Guesthouse

Perfect for a couple for a few days "getaway." Easy to find and right on the ocean front. However, there is no direct beach access from the guesthouse. The beach is only 2 minutes walk away. Lots of good places to eat in walking distance. Small, but decorated well and very comfortable. Well worth the price.

Darcie Davis

Bend, OR USA

Awesome location!

The unit had everything we needed. Walking distance to all the great things in Nye Beach, food, shopping and most of all the beach. Ocean views, and you can open the windows at night and fall asleep to the sound of the surf. I will definitely recommend to all my friends. The owners were very responsive with emails and answered any questions I had promptly. Looking forward to going back again!
