A Place to Remember

This old home is right in the Nye Beach district. We walked to shop, have coffee, lunch and dinner and to see art. Great view of the ocean and good access to the beach. We loved the decor and all the supplies that were there. The downstairs(main floor) has places to sleep if someone doesn't want to do stairs. We all talked about coming another time. The owners are so good in keeping in touch before the trip, and answering all questions.

Great rental....a strong 5-star rating!!!!

We stayed a week for our family vacation. Couldn't ask for a better location and the quality of the facility and provisions was beyond expectation. We all came away in agreement that we'd like too return in the future. The owners are very cooperative and support of tenants' needs. Beautiful beachfront view and accessibility. Easy walking to so many quaint shops, good food and drink. Thanks for making this a memorable vacation.

It doesn't get any better!

We had such a wonderful weekend staying at this charming house!!! Located right in the heart of the community, you're a short walk from everything - the beach, restaurants, stores, etc. The house is so great (and quiet), everything a coastal vacation home should be! It was very comfortable, with 3 bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, a huge livingroom, dining room, and fully stocked kitchen downstairs as well as a bonus room and bathroom. There is plenty of space to be had. Oh, and let's not forget to mention that we have two small children and were pleased to find that the owners even provide a pack n play, booster, bathroom stool and utensils for little ones. So thoughtful! And last but not least, one of the most important features is the view, it is phenomenal! I cannot say enough wonderful things about the house or its owners!

Great Getaway

We achieved our goal to give our 91 year old east coast mother her first glimpse of the Pacific. She enjoyed relaxing while looking at the waves through the very safe windows of the Classic . The house afforded us all that we needed in the clean amenities and the ambiance of the seaside cottage decor. We had ample places to sleep for all seven of us with either group activity or the option of privacy when we wanted it. Close to everything, activities were available for any age. Thank you for the lovely weekend. Clearly a place for a family to enjoy each other.

Fantastic location, fantastic rental!

The rental owners were very helpful and accommodating. They responded very promptly to emails and were very kind to help us when we needed it. The house itself is beautiful, with breath taking views. The whole house was very clean, and the fully stocked kitchen was a plus! I was pleasantly surprised that there were 2 complete baths. The upstairs bathroom is definitely spacious and the water stays hot after multiple back to back showers. This is definitely the only rental house we'll be renting in Newport in the future.

James & Lana Wetherill

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much Marich and friends for your glowing review. Our business is your pleasure, so we look forward to assisting you with a future reservation at the beautiful American Classic in Newport.

Family visit

My brother, sister-in-law, sister, and brother-in-law were visiting from Wisconsin and we had a wonderful beach experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the "American Classic" beachfront home. It was so comfortable and centrally located. We could walk everywhere. We were lucky to have some great weather to walk on the beach and visit the tide pools. The home had everything we needed to make us feel at home. We would highly recommend this rental. The owners were very easy to work with and responded promptly to our requests.

Thanks you all for your 5 Star Review Gerard! Please let us know if we can assist you with a return visit to American Classic anytime.

Beautiful ocean view

A perfect location and a great house with all the necessities provided, even a hair dryer! Eating out is convenient and the beach is a short walk from the house. Two of our favorite restaurants are Stephanie's for breakfast/lunch and April's for a spectacular dinner (little pricey) but there are also a couple of good spots on the Bayfront. A delightful, restful stay with beautiful weather all but one day out of the week. I would definitely stay at this home again.

James & Lana Wetherill

Owner's reply:

Thanks Eadie for your kind review! We hope you had a pleasant drive back to beautiful Montana. Please let us know when we can assist you with a return visit to the oceanfront American Classic. Happy Trails! Jim & Lana

Tacoma, WA

Great location with an amazing view

Stayed here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The location of this place is amazing walking distance to shopping, restaurants etc. and steps to the beach! The view from this place is amazing. We spent our evenings on the large deck watching the sunset over the sea after our little ones were in bed. Of note, housekeeping was not quite finished by the 4:00 check in time. We ended up going grocery shopping while they finished up. Not to big a deal, but it would have been nice had it been ready. We will definitely be back again! We walked all over town and there isn't a place quite like this in Newport!

A week of relaxtion, family, wine and fun

My husband and I went to Newport with our two teenage children and my 72 year old mother in law. This place was awesome!! We enjoyed morning walks on the beach, trip to the aquarium, wine tasting in the valley, shopping in delightful shops, daily trips to the Bay to pick up our fresh fish, and amazing restaurants just steps from our door. The space in the house was perfect for all of us to have ample room, and the kitchen was large enough to cook whatever we needed. Fred Meyer was just a little ways in town, so that helped us in getting the necessery itemes we needed to cook our meals. We have stayed in many VRBO homes, but this is the ONLY home we have said that we would like to return to next Summer. Thank you for providing this for us!!!

A Great Family Week

Our stay was wonderful! Nye Beach is a charming community. The house provided us with everything we could possibly need including a million dollar view and easy beach access. The Panini bakery is only a short walk away. Their bread & BLT's are fantastic. We hope to return soon!

Darling Home-Perfect Location

I live in the area and visited this home while looking for a spot for my relatives to stay. Unfortunately our plans changed, but this home is darling! Perfectly located in historical Nye Beach, gorgeous ocean front, close to pubs, restaurants and stores. The owner was gracious, accommodating and even offered a discount. I'll definitely contact her for lodging in the future. (Note: Although I am a local, I do not know the owner and have no connection to her, so it has no bearing on this review.)

Hi Janet, RE: American Classic
It was nice meeting you & thanks for your kind comments!! We look forward to your visit soon.

American Classic stay in the rain

Besides for the terribly rainy weather we encounter during our stay, we truly enjoyed visiting Nye Beach and this charming rental house. The house is well equipped for 10 people, with full kitchen supplies, lots of towels and and TV's and DVD players throughout the house. We enjoyed the quaint community of Nye Beach, with its unique shops and charming restaurants and bakeries - all only a block or two walk away. The big open windows at the back of the house provided spectacular views of the crashing surf. And only a short distance away there is beach access to the open expanse of beach. We look forward to visiting again when the weather is better. Our friends from Denver really enjoyed themselves and so did our dogs!

James & Lana Wetherill

Owner's reply:

Hi Jane!
We are very pleased you liked everything about the American Classic, with the exception of the weather. You happened to come while the historical record for the wettest March ever was being broken. It is unlikely you'll experience such extremes again, especially from May to October when better weather is more predictable. Please let us know if we can assist you with such a return visit so you can experience the true beauty of the Oregon Coast.
Thanks again! Jim & Lana

Wonderful time

We had three couples that enjoyed our experience very much. The house accomodated us very easily and we didn't feel we were stepping over each other at all. Wonderful view from the kitchen and livingroom.dining room area. Great covered deck although the weather didn't allow us to spend any time out there. No BBQ is the only thing we found missing but we made due. Kitchen is fully stocked and nice modern appliances. Easy walk to shops and beach. We would would come here again.

James & Lana Wetherill

Owner's reply:

Thanks Scott for such a favorable review!! We continue to add to this "American Classic" home and are considering the best way to add a BBQ grill for guests. Frankly there hasn't been much of a call for it with all the fine dining just a short walk away, but then again we strive to satisfy all our guests needs whenever possible. Thanks again for your visit & we welcome you back anytime!
Sincerely, Jim & Lana Wetherill

Boise, ID

great beach front location and view

The house had a wonderful view and you just had to walk a little bit in either direction to get to the beach. Nice stores and restaurants within walking distance. It was nice that all the beds had electric blankets and there were several nice touches provided by owners. The only hazard is the very steep staircase which would not be elderly friendly.

James & Lana Wetherill

Owner's reply:

Hi Gary & thanks for the compliments as we continue to add more touches to this Victorian Classic. The staircase is normal for many homes in the Historic District and is well padded/carpeted with full railings. Such homes are not wheelchair accessible however, but we're very pleased you enjoyed yourselves.
Thanks again for your visit!
Your hosts, Jim & Lana

As good as it gets!

Newport, OR is a fantastic place to visit, and you couldn't ask for a better house to stay in. The American Classic is right in the heart of Nye Beach, the part of town with some of the best restaurants (I highly recommend Chowder Bowl) and stores in town. The house has three very cozy bedrooms with a very open living/dining/kitchen area downstairs. Big windows and a deck make it always easy to get a great view of the ocean. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the appliances and cooking gear you could ever need. The owner was always in touch when needed and made for a very easy and relaxing vacation. Thanks again.

Nye Beach Rental

We stayed at this house for 6 nights. We enjoyed everything about it. Lots of old charm mixed with modern amenities. We had plenty of room for everyone. The location was perfect for us as we love the Nye Beach area and the shops/restaurants all within easy walking distance. We usually spend time in Newport every summer and will be renting this Classic Beach house every time.

A Fantastic week at the American Classic

A fantastic beach-vacation property! We had 5 adults and 5 grandsons (9 to mid teens) and the accomodations were great for us. Easy access to the beach - brought the grandsons' boogie boards, bikes, and kites. Just a short drive to the Oregon Aquarium, Newport's bayfront, and the Yaquina Head & Yaquina Bay lighthouses - as well as Devel's Punchbowl, etc. A great place for me to celebrate my 70th birthday with my kids and grandsons! My family is still raving about the seafood dishes at the Chowder Bowl - just a one block walk and the fantastic food and ocean view at Georgies Beachside Grill (a few blocks north along the beach).

Thank you for a wonderful stay!
