Be sure to make a stop at the Astoria Sunday Market during your summer weekend getaway to Clementine’s Bed and Breakfast! From our B&B in Astoria’s historic district, It’s just a five block stroll past the Garden of the Surging Waves. From mid-May and mid-October, the Market draws thousands of visitors to Astoria’s historic district on Sundays. It’s the second largest market of its kind in Oregon!

Explore the Sunday Market between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm each week. You’ll find about 170 vendors offering products that have been grown, gathered, or created by local farmers, craftspeople and artisans. The products are reviewed by the Sunday Market to assure their quality and authenticity. About one-third of the vendors offer fresh produce and artisan-crafted foods. Others offer everything from art to jewelry, and distilled beverages to a wide variety of handmade crafts from wood to ceramics. Lisa Sophia is the 2018 featured artist.

Don’t go just to shop for artisan gifts or foods – there’s entertainment, too! The Market features live music each week in its food court.

Astoria Vacation Rental at Clementine’s Bed and Breakfast

May 11th, 2017 by Clementines B&B

Your vacation lodging in Astoria, the oldest American city west of the Mississippi River, should be in the city’s charming historic district, and the Moose Lodge at Clementine’s Bed & Breakfast is the perfect choice for families with children, couples traveling together or larger parties desiring individual quarters in the same location. Fido will be welcome, too!  Located next door to the B&B in the heart of Astoria’s historic district, you can walk to all the downtown shops, museums, restaurants, and activities. Two separate units are available: Moose Suites and the Riverview Loft.  Both have living areas, well-equipped kitchens for fixing your own breakfast (and other meals if you wish), private entrances, outdoor spaces, and views of the historic Flavel House and Columbia River, plus luxury linens, bath amenities, and robes to pamper you. A two night minimum is requested; weekly rates are available.

The Moose Lodge began as a private residence over 150 years ago. Perhaps the oldest surviving house in Astoria, Job Ross, the original owner, lived there from some time in the 1850s until his death in 1895, when it was inherited by his son. Like many Victorian homes on the higher ground overlooking the Columbia River, it survived the devastating fire that destroyed Astoria’s downtown waterfront in 1922. The building began a new life as the Moose Temple Lodge, home of the fraternal Loyal Order of Moose, from 1925-1948, then became a Mormon meetinghouse from 1950-1966. When Judith Markham established the B&B in 1993, she began renovating the Job Ross home next door, soon to become The Lagniappe Café. In 1998, the building was transformed into accommodations for the B&B, and now, in 2017, into vacation rentals for guests seeking longer stays and/or accommodations for larger groups.

Both units in the Moose Lodge accommodate up to six people, and free unrestricted street parking is available. We hope you will make yourselves at home!
