Camp Yachats Vacation Cottage... in a garden setting with forest and ocean!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Maximum 4 persons))

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. And our rates are simple... TAXES ARE INCLUDED, NO DEPOSIT, NO ADDITIONAL CLEANING FEE! We are pet-friendly... up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome, and will be charged $25 each... per stay, not per night! And like a hotel, we add NO extra fees for cleaning or otherwise.

This one of a kind cottage, privately owned and managed by the on-site owners, is situated on two acres and abuts the National Forest. Flower beds, rhododendrons, and flowering trees provide seasonal color throughout.

We are located about 6.5 miles south of the village, on the inland side of the gorgeous stretch of shoreline between Cape Perpetua and Heceta Head.

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

You can relax 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 an apple tree in the backyard garden.

This charming cottage is a perfect spot for your base for exploring the magic of 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.

About A Victoria Lambert

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!

A Victoria Lambert purchased this cottage in 2001

What makes this cottage unique

Outside: the beach, the mighty 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

This quant little house was just wonderful! Yes, it is smaller than the pictures make it appear but it was still quite cozy with four adults saying there. The beach access is steep but there is a much easier path just a short ways up the road at Stonefield access. My mother with a broken leg and crutches was able to make it down so almost anyone can. The beach is quite and a wonderful place to watch the sunset. Paul was a delight and keep to himself as to not to disturb us. He was helpfully and was a great joy to talk to. We had lots of fun wandering around the house and property looking at all the little decorations. Would definitely recommend!

Lovely Stay at Yachats

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Camp Yachats. It was very clean and comfortable with good parking. The location was lovely (very peaceful) and we enjoyed walking over to the beach and looking at the tidal rock pools. The cottage was full of interesting things to look at with books and information to read. We loved watching the hummingbirds as we don't have them in the U.K.

Camp Yachats is the best

  • 5 of 5

The folks that run Camp Yachats are great and having them right next door in case you need anything is nice. The place was very clean but if you plan to do any cooking space is a definite issue , good thing i dont cook much. lol

A couple things is would suggest, installing a pocket door for the bathroom might help with spacial issue there and a bigger tv would be nice. Not being able to lock the slider was an issue for me as i dont feel comfortable unless all the doors and windows are locked when i venture out or go to bed. Loved all the books and the peace and quiet , my dog loved it too (no fireworks for her to endure) . The little trail to the creek was cool too.

I would definitely stay here again. Its super affordable and the pet fee was awesome.

Not an ocean view but its not that far to walk to the beach

Quiet cottage escape

  • 5 of 5

A great little cottage just across the street from the beach! It was perfect to have a fenced yard for the pooches. We had the beach mostly to ourselves and, though the kitchen is small, we were able to cook a Thanksgiving meal.
