Beautiful, big, nye beach, waterfront, stocked with supplies like no other vrbo weve stayed at. Owners were delightful to deal with. Cannot wait to go back!

“Great family retreat!”

Reviewed 26 May 2015

We stayed at both the classic house and the classic guesthouse with our children and their families and our friends who stayed in the guesthouse. This property was perfect! We had 2 dogs with us also. The fenced yard at the guesthouse was just a short walk from the main house. We arrived and immediately fell in love with this charming house. We couldn't get the heat to come on and I sent a text to the owners and Jim called me right away and helped me get it going. The location was perfect! Just a short walk to the beach and shopping and we LOVED the Irish Pub just down the street! I can't really think of any negatives about the propert except we could have used a few more spices in the kitchen and that someone before us had put crab or something in the garbage disposal and it smelled a bit funky. We would DEFINITELY return to this property! A great big Thank You to Jim and Lana for a wonderful holiday with my kids!

“Very relaxing!”

Reviewed 5 Mar 2015

It was such a perfect property for two couples. Plenty of room, very accommodating and perfect location to browse the Nye Beach district of Newport. And not too far to the Seafood & Wine Festival! Gorgeous view and easy beach access just steps from Nye Beach entrance. Will definitely be in touch with Jim & Lana in the future.

“A Place to Remember”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2014

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!!!!”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2013

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!”

Reviewed 5 Mar 2013

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!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your superb review Beth! Please let us know when we can assist you & your family with a return visit. Your Hosts, Jim & Lana Wetherill

“Great Getaway”

Reviewed 12 Feb 2013

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.

Owner's reply: Thanks Mary!! Please let us know when we can assist you with a return visit to American Classic! Jim & Lana

“Fantastic location, fantastic rental!”

Reviewed 25 Jan 2013

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.

“Family visit”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2012

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.

Owner's reply: 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. All Our Best, Jim & Lana

“Beautiful ocean view”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2012

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.

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
