Coos Bay cabin description
Hideout in a coastal forest. Built in the early 60's as a fishing retreat, it is a perfect getaway for two guests. Completely remodeled, this cozy little cabin is located right on the river and in the heart of old logging history. With the mountains and river, it provides a perfect excuse to hike, bike, fish and explore. Minutes from Coos Bay, enjoy the beaches, local seafood, and a barbecue all in the same day.
With a bright open kitchen and living area, it makes your stay comfortable and relaxing. Heated by a gas fireplace, it makes cold winter nights cozy and comfortable. The main bedroom boasts a comfortable queen bed, with down comforter, and in the winter warm cozy flannel sheets. In the bunk area, find two rustic built-in bunk beds with a custom wood 100 year-old Juniper tree ladder.
With 80' of river frontage, watch river birds, otters, ospreys, salmon, chipmunks, quail, deer and the occasional elk, who venture down to enjoy the apple orchard. Build a fire in the fire pit on the river bank below the cabin's private deck and enjoy an evening under the stars. We even provide the wood.
During the summer months, when the river is at its lowest, enjoy a small island where blue heron, ducks, deer, otters, kingfishers, and other river wildlife come to explore. Right in front of the cabin, it makes morning coffee a whole lot more enjoyable.
Located on the East Fork of the Millicoma River, three miles from Golden and Silver Falls State Park in Coos County, and with the 92,000 acre Elliott State Forest and the 210,000 acre Weyerhaeuser Millicoma Tree Farm as neighbors, you'll enjoy the beautiful southern Oregon Coast Range at its best.
THE FISH ARE HERE! Chinook salmon spawn in front of the cabin from November to January and steelhead fishing starts mid-December and runs through March. Trout season runs from May 26th through October 31st. In the fall experience the beautiful colors of nature and in the winter, perhaps a snowfall or two.
Spring brings lot's of early wildflowers like the Chocolate Lily, the white and pink Trillium, and the beautiful native rhododendrons in colors from white to deep purple. During the months of July through late September, fill your basket with fresh blackberries or spend time picking apples in our orchard. In October, visit the Mahaffey Ranch in the town of Allegany, and pick out that perfect pumpkin.
Open all year are the wonderful hiking trails at Golden and Silver Falls State Park. Hike through an old growth forest of Douglas Fir, Big Leaf Maple and Oregon Myrtlewood, while enjoying the scenic, beautiful and historic Glenn Creek. At a height of 240' Golden Falls is quite possibly the most impressive waterfall in the Coast Range of Oregon. Both falls are located within a rustic state park, adorned by a trail system and a nice picnic area at the trailhead. Originally the Allegany to Scottsburg Pack Trail, Silver Falls hiking path was a stage coach route from 1909 to 1912.
Featuring a fully equipped kitchen, and plenty of towels, pack your toothbrush, and those books you've wanted to read, and stay awhile. Whatever you choose, we know you'll enjoy your stay.
The Little Cabin on the River is licensed through the Coos County Public Health Department, License # 54468.
(We have provided several books on our area's local history, covering logging, legends and mysteries, along with vintage photos covering the original town of Allegany and Golden & Silver Falls. Hike above Golden Falls and explore the old homestead, making for an exciting day trip.)

My wife and I spent a week at the Little Cabin, and it met all of our needs. The view was great, and we actually spotted a small black bear across the river one morning. We also saw an large osprey fly past and land in the top of a tree. We are tennis fans, and in our spare time, we were able to see a lot of the US Open on the Dish Network available at the cabin. We were amazed at how quiet it was there. The short hikes to Golden and Silver Falls were amazing, and we were almost alone there. We had to go into town nearly every day on business, which took some time, but the drive along the rivers was pretty. The phone at the cabin worked fine, so the lack of cell service was not a problem. Overall, it was a terrific place to stay for a very reasonable price.

We checked into the little cabin on the river on 8/15 and were instantly amazed at a number of things - the beauty of the setting, the cleanliness and comfort of the cabin, the location, and the quiet! This cabin has everything - the attention to details is also amazing. They have coffee, abundant condiments, and every piece of kitchen wear you can imagine. We had a lovely stay - hiking the waterfalls at the nearby park, spending one day in Coos Bay hiking through Shore Acres State Park, enjoying the stars, and getting a good, quiet night's sleep. I would highly recommend this lovely cabin!

What a wonderful retreat!
What a wonderful retreat!
My husband and I were looking for a private retreat for a couple of days; staying at a Little Cabin was perfect! The owners are wonderful and seemed to have anticipated all our needs - the kitchen was well stacked and the cabin was wonderfully decorated and very comfortable; after a while we found ourselves completely mesmerized by the surroundings and the humming birds (I have never seen that many of them at the same time!) provided entertainment. We had the best rest and have been recommending the place to our friends. Jennifer

My wife and I enjoy low-stress vacations where we can "hang out" and enjoy things on our own schedule. Little Cabin on the River was perfect for us. We enjoyed watching the Hummingbirds at the feeder on the rear deck and got some great photos of the Muskrats in the river. The trip to Golden and Silver Falls is highly recommended. My wife and I love first-person accounts of history, and the cabin's library is well-stocked with books giving the pioneer history of the area. My wife loved her nightly soaks in the claw-foot tub. I enjoyed reading at the antique desk off the kitchen. We enjoyed DVDs as well as satellite TV channels. We were able to keep in touch and check our emails each day. We took a half-day to travel down to Shore Acres State Park south of Coos Bay to admire the amazing floral displays. Little Cabin on the River is definitely on our "short list" of getaway spots to relax and refresh. The hosts have covered all the details and stocked the cabin with everything needed for an enjoyable stay.

My husband & I spent a full week at the cabin and had a wonderful time! The cabin was spotlessly clean and well-stocked, (including spices, sugar, ketchup, tea, mustard, syrup, and many others). The kitchen was very well-stocked with kitchen implements and baking pans for the cook. We very much enjoyed the books on the history of the area as well. We were blessed with beautiful, sunny weather so we sat on the deck in the sun, watching the river, hummingbirds, ducks, deer, etc. We enjoyed the fire pit at night and when we got cold, we utilized the gas fireplace in the cabin and it made it feel so cozy. The bed is extremely comfortable and we loved the claw foot bath tub. While the house is not isolated, it feels private, especially on the deck. The road to the cabin is a full 20 miles but even the gravel portion is well-maintained. The owners are great at giving directions and answering questions but otherwise give guests privacy. I would highly recommend the Little Cabin on the River if you like peace and quiet, with an occasional trip to Golden & Silver Falls or to the beach.

Perfect Romantic Get-A-Way
Perfect Romantic Get-A-Way
We could not have been more delighted with our recent stay at "Little Cabin on the River". Everything was BEYOND what was expected... we hadn't done a vacation rental before, so this was all new to us...we initially picked this rental because of its proximity to the Gold and Silver Falls State Park, which yes, IS right up the road... a definite "must-see". It was winter, so we expected chilly/rainy weather... having the gas fireplace in the cozy living room was a highlight. The cabin has so many wonderful little attentions to details and is so thoroughly stocked (but not overly so... ), that we were absolutely thrilled to find everything we needed to cook, make cookies even!, BBQ, and enjoy the firepit by the river one evening. The owners have gone over and beyond to make the traveler/guest feel welcomed and comfortable... the bed, well... you just don't want to leave it it's so comfy... the furniture is charming and some has a story, the furnishings are adorable/comfortable/great taste, and there are even books detailing history of the area that are fascinating reading and really give you a feel for the area that you wouldn't have otherwise, which makes exploring the area even more interesting. The cabin itself is on a beautiful drive, upriver from Coos Bay proper, but very do-able for day trips out to go ATV riding on the Dunes (super FUN!!), or drive to one of the relatively nearby coastal attractions/points of interest... the owners gave us wonderful suggestions on things to do in advance of our stay, and even a couple of great restaurant suggestions at our request... which we appreciated and took advantage of their experience. :) The property was spotlessly clean and well-maintained... everything was in perfect working order and the owners did a great job of providing clear information on their expectations (what needs to be done at check-out, etc) and we absolutely would stay here again and give it a glowing recommendation. If you are looking for beauty, relaxation, and seclusion, this is a great place for that!

We hope to see you again!
A Perfect Vacation!
A Perfect Vacation!
Our trip to the Little Cabin was wonderful! We enjoyed the quietness, peacefulness, and most of all the privacy of the cabin. In no way was the road difficult, nor a problem. My two twins enjoyed the "rustic bunk beds," and hanging out in the dining room watching the "river" roll by. We saw ducks, kingfishers, deer, and an occasional steelhead swimming by. My kids loved it! The fireplace made the cabin warm and cozy and the big screen TV was great. The Litte Cabin provided several DVD's that are children and family friendly. One of our favorites was "Open Season." We hiked both Golden & Silver Falls and the kids were amazed at the size of the trees. It is indeed an old-growth forest and the falls were incredible. We traveled to Coos Bay and spent time at "The Out-Door Inn" where the kids played while we ate the "best" clam chowder ever! As far as houses "right next door," it was not a problem at all. The location was quiet, clean and very welcoming. Tom and Dee have done a wonderful job of providing a "home-away-from-home" feeling. We definitely will return, perhaps the next time as a "romantic weekend get-away." My husband fully agrees. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven!

Beautiful cabin, beautiful area
Beautiful cabin, beautiful area
The cabin is very nice, comfortable and cosy, for a couple. The bunk beds in a very small extra bedroom may be suitable for children. The coffee table is very unique and well worth seeing. I urge the owners put a picture of it on the website. The cabin is very well stocked with good quality supplies and cooking utensils. You don't have to worry if you if you forgot to bring the sugar or oil for your cooking. There was a little snow on the ground when we were there. Just enough to make some of the area picturesque without being a problem on the road. The road is narrow and a bit muddy -- our car needed to go through a carwash after we left -- but our sedan had no trouble at all. You don't need 4-wheel drive. Golden and Silver Falls are only about 2 miles away. They are quite spectacular, especially from the top of Golden Falls. The path up to the top of Golden Falls is mostly an old road (closed in 1958) so the walking is easy. Its wide for a path but would have been narrow for a road. Meeting a logging truck on it must have been an experience. The path has a 200 foot cliff with no guard rails so I wouldn't recommend taking small adventuresome children up there. In the cabin there were several very well done books by Lionel Youst about life in the area in earlier days. Youst knows how to tell stories. Although the cabin is several miles up a one lane gravel road, it is not set off all by itself. There are several houses right next door. The view from the living room windows is of the creek as the pictures show.

Owner response: Thank you for your review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your visit. One of the exciting parts of visiting Golden & Silver Falls State Park, is that it is a beautiful drive and located in a state forest and working tree farm. The coastal mountains are unique and exploring them is one of the best parts of being on the coast. Our little valley is largely summer homes whose families have been a part of its wonderful history. Thank you again for taking the time to write and for visiting us.
Great cabin with great steelhead fishing. The dryer was a huge plus when dealing with wet January weather. I can't over emphasize the proximity to great steelhead water. Save on gas versus driving from Coos Bay and the price can't be beat. Ended up with a 14lbs Steelhead not 5 minutes from the cabin. I wish I could attach a picture... I'll be staying again for sure!

My wife located this home on the internet and saw the pictures and read the reviews. She then called the owners and discussed what we needed. They were very happy to work with us on such short notice. When we arrived and opened the door, we could see that the residence was clean and felt like home. Anythng that could possibly be needed was supplied which included appliances, dishes and even spices etc. There was even bottles of bath soap and shampoo instead of little bars of soap. The bed was very comfortable and the home was decorated with great taste. We enjoyed the gas fireplace and the fact that the river was right behind the home. We will return and will recommend this to all of our friends.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: I enjoy fishing, gardening, and hiking. I have been fishing here since I was eight years old. I just enjoy the awesome seclusion of this area. This picture, taken in front of the cabin, shows myself with a fresh caught steelhead. Caught this year, right alongside the cabin, it weighed out at 14 lbs and 32''. Another great place to fish for steelhead, is at Nesika Park, located just three minutes from the cabin!
Why the Owner Chose Coos Bay:
I grew up alongside this little cabin. When it came up for sale in 2010, I couldn't think of anything better than to open it to family, friends, and travelers. My family has been a part of this wonderful valley since the 50's. Never crowded, it is a great place to kick back and relax. The weather is milder here and we don't get that cold wind or fog off the ocean. This is a rural area, but also a safe and fun place to bring your family. Mine grew up here.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I really enjoy all of the seasons here. I look forward to the summer barbecues, swimming, and just being outside. Fall is wonderful with all the trees changing colors and the salmon traveling up the river to spawn. One of the best places to see this is right in front of this little cabin. Winter brings wild mushroom picking and the rain, which raises the river and makes Golden and Silver Falls so spectacular. Fishing is one of my most favorite hobbies, so I live where I can do that. In Spring everything is green, the birds start to nest, and the mountain mist is beautiful.
