Yachats cottage description

When you check in at Camp Yachats Vacation Cottage, you will be greeted by fresh flowers, the world's largest ocean, and the Siuslaw National Forest, one of only two in the lower 48 which have the forest meeting the ocean! This one of a kind cottage, privately owned and managed by the on-site owners, is situated on two acres, with the Siuslaw National Forest all around. Flower beds, rhododendrons, and flowering trees provide seasonal color throughout. We are located 6.5 miles south of the village, on the inland side of the breathtakingly gorgeous stretch of shoreline between Cape Perpetua and Heceta Head. And our rates are simple... TAXES ARE INCLUDED, AND NO EXTRA FEES! (...for humans, that is. Up to two dogs are welcome, and will be charged $25 each.)

The two front rooms and the porch offer ocean views through the trees. The cottage features 2 bedrooms, a small yet fully equipped kitchen, a living room, a small dining room, and a small bright bathroom.

You can relax in a rocker on the porch, listen to the ocean’s waves, and breathe in the cool clean air while keeping an eye out for the eagles and hummingbirds in residence.

Walk to the beach down our private mossy path edged by ferns, salal, huckleberry, and Sitka spruce. There you’ll find wide sandy beaches and rocky tide pools, only 800 feet from your front door, just across the Scenic Pacific Coast Byway. Stroll along the beaches, typically empty except for agates, driftwood, and shore birds.

Just behind the cottage a trail leads to the banks of the year round Mill Creek (about 150 feet from your back door), with tall trees, ferns, and wildflowers all around. Or you might unwind at the table under the apple tree in the backyard garden.

This charming cottage is the perfect spot for your vacation get away and a delightful base for exploring the Oregon Coast. We provide a small library of specially selected books on a variety of local topics, including history of the area, geology and flora and fauna. The cottage is also equipped with board games and jigsaw puzzles for your enjoyment.

Whimsy abounds, with an Elvis shrine, a sock monkey haven, local folk art, a sand collection, vintage Oregon plates, a little red-and-white retro red kitchen, and lots more surprises!

Your hosts live on site next door, and would be delighted to help in any way possible to make your stay a memorable one. If you desire an amenity or service not listed, please ask anyway. In many cases you can be accommodated.

• Ocean views and easy private beach access
• Complimentary tea and coffee
• Dog friendly; dog towels provided
• Wi-Fi access
• Simple rates... TAXES INCLUDED, NO EXTRA FEES for humans. Up to two good dogs are welcome, $25 each for the duration of your stay.

****************************************************

One guest even memorialized her experience here in verse::

From the moment we arrived til our leave-taking today
Camp Yachats has been wonderful, and we'd rather stay
Enjoying the comfort, the humor, the art,
The beach, the forest, the garden, the heart,
And the soul you've poured into this place...
Thank you for sharing this island of grace!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: We are your hosts, Victoria Lambert and Paul Niblock. Paul previously lived on five continents, then both of us traveled the lower 48 states looking for our perfect spot. We think we have it! We enjoy the ocean 800' from our door, the cleanest freshest air you can imagine, dark rich earth for gardening, lush green forest around us, a creek in the back yard, mountains behind us, lots of solitude, and a year-round temperate climate... we don't need air-conditioning and we don't shovel snow. Life is good!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Outside, the beach, the Pacific, the forest, the creek, the flowers and apple trees... and eagles, elk, bears, coyotes, sea lions, seals, otters, eagles and hummingbirds to share it with. And inside, all the practical stuff you need to make your visit go smoothly... plus fun furnishings and loads of whimsy, Elvis, sock monkeys, and a growing sand collection from all over the globe!
