Newport, Oregon. Why you could stay here for your entire vacation.

Rambling like vagabonds, Gypsies or tumbleweeds is our “vacation style.” We love to let the wind blow us about while we explore the adventure. No plans, just a journey and usually a story!

Manzanita, Oregon has all you need for a fabulous getaway!

My daughter and I ran away from home-to this quaint little coastal town that leaves no doubt you are in another world.
