About Sara Klobas

We are Ryan and Sara Klobas. We have two boys, Preston (12) and Vance (9). Both of us are native Oregonians and grew up walking the sands and playing in the great waters of the Oregon Coast. Our parents moved here in the 60's and settled in to have a family. We now reside in NE Portland and LOVE Oregon!!

Sara Klobas purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Sara Klobas chose Cape Meares

We found this little pink cottage through our sister in law, who lives in Cape Meares full time. We put the word out that we were looking, and after about a year, this little gem popped up as a potential purchase. We spoke to the owner several times and soon shook hands and made a deal. Since then, we have made this place our home away from home.

What makes this cottage unique

There is so much to love about Cape Meares. The 4 miles of uncrowded beach, the drive up the bay, the birds singing as you walk past the lake on the way to the beach, the friendly neighbors, the bright beautiful stars on a clear nite, riding bikes on the spit and beyond, the tidepools if you're there when the tide is LOW, the deck, the wood stove, the great meals on the BBQ, walking forever on the beach or picking blackberries late in Summer. It's just a great place to get away from the craziness of being home.

Cozy home in gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

The Peptide is a cozy house with everything you need for a quiet and relaxed stay. It was wonderful to have a wood stove in addition to a good furnace. Although we made just one fire, it warmed the evening as we enjoyed dinner and conversation. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean and attractive. We had a few questions and Sara was quick to respond. She was generous to let us have a small dog part of the time and her pet rules are very reasonable.

Cape Meares has a wonderful beach for walking and agate collecting. We also hiked close by through old growth Sitkas and grassy sand dunes. The sunsets (2 blocks away) were stunning. We watched bald eagles teach their young to fish, saw elk and lots of water fowl. We plan to spend a week there next winter! One tip in the area is to dine at The Schooner in Netarts, which is about 15 minutes from the Peptides. The food was 4 star and the atmosphere quite relaxed so no need to change out of hiking clothes. Locally sourced food from the ocean, dairies and farms. Yum!

Tidy little home that is just a short walk from a beautiful beach.

  • 5 of 5

This part of Oregon is stunning and this house is a great home-base for exploring it. Our family of four was very comfortable here. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and all the conveniences of home (washer/dryer, full kitchen, yard and deck). Thank you for sharing your place with us!

Perfect size, perfect location for a little vacation.

This is a great little cabin in a wonderful location. It's perfectly comfortable and spacious. The owners have taken great care to provide everything you need, and the beaches, park land and town of Tillamook are all close by. A good value cabin rental.

Great location, could use some improvements

  • 3 of 5

The location is beautiful with a short walk to a great beach. The home fit our needs well. The key is difficult to find in the dark with no lighting at night around the back of the house. The home was very cold when we arrived (AC was on for some reason), the heater alone is not enough to heat the home. The firewood is wet so hard to start a fire. Having to take your garage with you is a pain when there is dogs there but manageable. Wifi worked well and the home is quiet.

Owner's Response: There is a light in the shed where the lock box is and lights on the back of the house. They are not left on 24/7 though so they need to be turned on once you enter the mudroom. We do not have AC in the house. There is a dehumidifier that should be on constantly as this is a beach house and the constant humidity in the home can cause problems. Not sure why the firewood was wet??? The wood is stored in the shed and has been seasoned. We will look into the heat problem ASAP. We depend on our guests to communicate with us if there is something that needs attention. Calling, texting or emailing is great! Reviewing with this information does not help resolve problems.

Car: necessary

The Peptide is located in Cape Meares. Cape Meares is one of the 3 capes on the Scenic Route on the Oregon coast and sits on the south end of the Tillamook Bay. There are 4 miles of uncrowded beach to enjoy as you stroll, play or relax on on the shore. Fishing, biking, kayaking, canoeing, birdwatching and hiking are just some of the great activities to do while visiting CM and if you would like to venture into town (aprox. 7 miles), you may like to get some ice cream at the Tillamook Cheese Factory, pick up some fresh Netarts Bay oysters at JAndy's Oyster Co. (call first and ask what's available 503-812-0253), check out the vintage planes at the Air Museum, sample some cheese and wine at the Blue Heron Cheese Factory and take a train ride on a Steam Engine from Garibaldi to Rockaway and back.

There are many species of birds who make Cape Meares and the Bay their home. Blue Herons are a common site, as well as Bald Eagles, Osprey and smaller birds such as Red Winged Black Birds. There have been sightings of deer, elk, porcupine, beaver, bear and more.

Cape Meares is a wooded area. There are no stores, restaurants or gas stations. It is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. So if you are looking for a small town feel, come here and experience Cape Meares at the Peptide!
