New event center open in Yachats

The new Overleaf Event Center in Yachats is open and ready for meetings and gatherings. Located at the entrance to the Overleaf Lodge Resort, the Event Center offers an intimate environment surrounded by the natural beauty of native plantings and walking trails. The Event Center can accommodate up to 80 people, depending on the type of event and seating arrangement.

The Overleaf Event Center features a cozy wood-burning fireplace for cool coastal days and a large deck for warm-weather gatherings. The landscaped grounds are ideal for strolling when it's time for a break, or as a back drop for outdoor receptions. It's quickly proving to be a major destination for businesses that want to inspire creativity, as well as families and groups ready to celebrate a milestone, conduct classes or just enjoy good times.

Coffee, snack and lunch services are available. The Overleaf staff welcomes the opportunity to work with guest group caterers for dinners, and an on-site holding kitchen is available.

Jackie Erickson attended a quilting class at the Overleaf Event Center conducted by Sisters, Oregon's Stitching Post. She said, "Overleaf Lodge surpassed all of our expectations. The lighting in the conference center is outstanding (as quilters we require good lighting). Each morning we were greeted with a fabulous continental breakfast and ended the evening relaxing in the spa pool. In fact, our group had such a good time we are extending this year's retreat by another day!"

Overnight guests can relax in the luxury of the Overleaf Lodge's 54 oceanfront rooms and suites, or rent one or more of the seven Overleaf Village cottages, complete with fully equipped kitchens, each of which sleeps six to ten. Overleaf Lodge rooms feature in-room DVD players, microwaves, refrigerators, wireless internet, and select rooms with gas fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, balconies and kitchenettes. All rooms have spectacular oceanfront views.

There's also the nearby 43-room pet-friendly Fireside Motel, on the Overleaf grounds, for visitors who prefer a more classic coast experience. Its park-like setting offers breathtaking ocean views, the historic Oregon Coast 804 Walking Trail, refrigerators and microwaves, satellite TV and video rentals, gift shop, some balconies and several rooms with fireplaces. When total indulgence is the order of the day, Event Center guests can book an appointment at the oceanfront Overleaf Spa, where a host of body treatments and services await.
