                            The Yurt on the Bay is a truly exceptional retreat. The setting is absolutely sublime, mere yards from the edge of the stunning bay. The yurt is located adjacent to the owners’ residence but feels very private as a large shed hides the home from view. The yard is well maintained and perfect for lawn games. The owners are dog-friendly which is always appreciated as we don’t travel without our fur-kid. They have created a nice little fenced-in dog area with amenities for your furry companions. The yurt itself was very clean and orderly with all the modern luxuries and conveniences that you would need. The unlimited hot water from the tankless water heater was especially welcome after a cool, misty day at the beach. The bed was incredibly deluxe, you can just melt into it while you star gaze through the large skylight. The owners showed extraordinary generosity and hospitality. They offered great suggestions for dining (take their word on Downie’s breakfast and the Fish Peddler’s chowder – amazing!) and activities (Cape Meares should not be missed – great tidepools!). Our comfort and happiness was obviously of importance to them and they delivered in spades. We can’t thank them enough for sharing such a magnificent place with us. We hope to return, time and time again.

                            We've been travelling the Oregon coast for many, many years and have just discovered this amazing retreat. We have stayed in yurts at Oregon state parks, but this yurt is more like a deluxe cabin. It is much larger and divided into three rooms. The front half is living room, dining room, and kitchen with everything imaginable to make your stay enjoyable.The kitchen is compact but very functional and we cooked all our meals there, including fresh crab purchased just down the street a ways. The owners have provided everything you need for cooking and eating. The TV-VCR-DVD combo worked very well with the huge collection of movies for all tastes. The queen sized bed was very comfortable as was the futon in the living room. The shower was wonderful with unlimited hot water from a tankless hot water system. The gas fireplace in the living room kept the yurt nice and cozy. The owners were wonderful and couldn't do enough for you. They provide dry firewood for the fire pit and there's a BBQ to use as well. I would gladly recommend this wonderful spot as a family getaway or as a romantic getaway. The owners' house is blocked from the yurt by a couple of sheds so you have your own private spot on the water. The owners are only there if you need them. All in all a rave review.

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, pet owners, sightseeing, girls getaway, age 55+, families with young children.

                            Owner response: Our only goal is guest satisfaction and we always keep that foremost. Our guests have been so respectful of the accomodations that unlike many vacation rentals we have not had to institute a cleaning deposit/fee, nor a pet deposit/fee. It is thanks to Gerry and his family, plus 99% of our other guests, we hope to keep prices affordable and not pile on fees. Thanks to all of them.

                            We just came home from a 4 day stay at the Yurt. We've had several VRBO experiences now. All lovely but this was by far the most special and beautiful destination yet. I write this review with mixed feelings. I wish the owners the very best luck with their endeavor but ... want to make sure that we can go back ! :0) B & D (the owners) PLEASE keep us in mind while you're phone is ringing off the phone with requests for reservations :0) These folks are the sweetest, most gracious hosts I could imagine and the Yurt and it's little slice of heaven location is everything and more than promised in the property descirption here. The bay is beautiful and ever changing. The owner is extremely knowledgable about the areas history and helped us find a few 'local'gems for services (please ask about the sweet little breakfast spot right in Bay City). The town is small and full of freindly folks and within a few miles either way, there are amazing sites and locations. Beach, forrests...and oh...fresh seafood EVERYWHERE to dine in or bring back and cook yoursleves. We couldn't have dreamed up a better vacation. We are destressed, relaxed from all of the fresh air, natural beauty and fabulous seafood and 'almost' to the point where we can start to think about going back to work. Our hearts however, will forever belong to the Yurt by the Bay. Love this place and these people. Thank you SO much for sharing this special place with us.. We will be back. Even if it takes a 2 year advance reservation ;-)

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, pet owners, sightseeing, girls getaway, age 55+, tourists without a car, families with young children, adventure seekers.
