Reedsport cabin description
Just 18 miles up Oregon Scenic Highway 38 from Reedsport, is the historic town of Scottsburg. One of Oregons oldest communities, there is not much here now except for a number of homes along the banks of the Umpqua River. The temperature is often a good ten degrees warmer than the coast, and with the towering cliffs of pine trees, and the river flowing peacefully by, you will realise this is a very special place.
This charming cabin has a rustic log interior. The cabin has a full kitchen with all the modern amenities, a full bathroom and a woodstove. There are two bedrooms - the master with queen bed, a desk, and storage. The second room is smaller with two twin beds. If you have more than 4 guests there are air mattresses that can be used.
The cottage is set about 150 feet from the River on over an acre of property. The cabin shares the property with a main house that is not rented out. Please note you are not able to see the river completely from the cabin, as the lot has clusters of trees that provide shade. This is a perfect place to have a private getaway or bring the kids for swimming and fishing in the river during the day and campfires in the evening.
The river is tidal, and this is the last stretch of the Umpqua you can get a motor boat to. Beyond the bridge it is too rocky, and shallow. There is a dock, and boat ramp just two miles away. We can provide referrals to a number of excellent local fishing guides if you would like to try your hand.
Our dock is in the river during summer months only. Its the perfect place to sit, and soak up the sun, or jump off into the river to cool down.
Scottsburg is less than twenty minutes to west of Elkton, where you can go wine tasting, visit the Butterfly Pavilion and Education Center or tour Ft Umpqua - a replica of the Hudson Bay Trading Company fur trading outpost. Scottsburg is 20 minutes east from Reedsport. Activities in Reedsport and Winchester Bay include; Dean’s Creek Elk Viewing, Umpqua Discovery Center, Umpqua Lighthouse State Park, ocean fishing, crabbing, sand dunes, and much more!!
There is a general store in Scottsburg just a short drive away,or the nearest shops are in Reedsport. Please note that AT&T does not work here. Verizon, and Sprint seem to. We love it because we leave our phones off, and our troubles goodbye.
There is room to park your RV, boat trailer etc. No cable TV but we have a good selection of videos, books, or family games.
Please note that no pets are allowed at this time.
If you have any further questions about the area, or property please do not hesitate to email or call.
Thanks, John and Kaycee

This is a nice little cabin. We really enjoyed our stay. Cozy, comfortable and clean! The owners are friendly and respond quickly to calls and emails. It is just a short drive to Reedsport and Winchester Bay. Our stay was in the winter time and we are looking forward to staying there in the summer time so we can take advantage of the riverfront yard and the river.

Had a great few days here with my college-aged daughter. We relaxed on the dock and swam in the river, cooked and read books, watched movies--it was a perfect getaway. The owners were friendly and accommodating and we enjoyed our stay immensely.

Excellent Relaxing Time with Family
Excellent Relaxing Time with Family
This cabin is fantastic! It is so peaceful and relaxing, yet there is so much to do. We had a blast playing board games, watching movies at night (which they have quite a good stock of both), but most of all we enjoyed the river! The current was so slow that it was pretty much like a lake. We spent the entire day swimming and fishing from the private dock, and playing horseshoes in the yard. The owners parents also made sure that we were comfortable and that we had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable, there was plenty of room for our family of 4. The kitchen was also very well stocked. The ONLY 2 suggestions that I have would be to bring your own bottled water (the tap water did not taste good), and it would be nice to have a drying rack for the dishes. Other than that we had a perfect weekend. We will definitely be back next summer!

Owner response: Thanks for the feedback and we are so glad you enjoyed the cabin. Based on your helpful comments we added a dishrack today. The cabin does use well water and while its safe to drink, it may not be for everybody, so it certainly isnt a bad idea to bring bottled water with you. Hope to see you again soon!

Owner response: Thank you Turley family! We appreciate your great feedback. We have indeed attached a ladder to the dock now so its much easier to get in and out of the water. Hope to see you all again soon.
This was a very charming and lovely little cottage on the river. We had a wonderful time hanging out and relaxing in the warm sun on the dock. We had a very minor issue and the Owner's we very quick to respond and resolve the issue! We would stay here again without question!

Great holiday retreat
Great holiday retreat
We had a great stay at The Cabin. The Cabin had everything we needed especially a super comfy bed. Its a very peaceful spot and all we could hear was the impressive Umpqua River at the end of the garden. There was a helpful pack full of local information which helped direct us to the best places to visit. We look forward to coming back very soon.

About the owner: Our family have lived on this river for 25 years, and we grew up here. When this property came on the market for the first time in 50 years, we new we had to make a move. With a stream running through the property, tall trees, and the river front location, we love this place as a getaway from our busy lives in Portland. We have spent the last year preparing to rent the cabin, and have added a new roof, and fixtures and furnishings. We do hope you will enjoy this special part of Oregon as much as we do, and look forward to welcoming you to Camp Umpqua.
