About the Property

Multi-generation friendly. Make memories to last forever.

Barefoot, you step out onto the splinter-free deck. A brilliant orange sun crests the horizon, sending the last of its fiery shimmer over the smooth Pacific. In one hand you hold a glass of Oregon wine and in the other, a tiny hand – a child or grandchild. The whole family is here, gathered on this perfect evening for a sunset meal. At the other end of the deck, the bubbling hot tub is prepped for after-dinner drinks and a night of family conversation under the stars.

Welcome to Lincoln City, a quiet escape known for fresh clams and crabs, sparkling agate, and exquisite, hand-blown glass floats.

Welcome to a family retreat where every detail encourages you to sit back, relax and enjoy time with your loved ones.

Welcome to a cozy, comfortable getaway where expansive decking, streaming sunlight, and picture windows invite the crashing surf into every room.

Welcome to the Shearwaterhouse, a Pacific oceanview home just a block to the scenic Oregon coastline.

Each of our three bedrooms feature its own theme: will you don an eye patch in the Captain's Quarters, grow gills for the Mermaid Lounge, or explore the ocean's depths Under the Sea? Our master suite (Captain's Quarters) is perfect for the ambulatory-compromised, as it's located on the main floor and has a walk-in shower. (Note there is one step to enter the home and main floor.) And for our youngest visitors, not only does the Under the Sea bedroom feature fun décor, but the king bed and futon configuration is perfect for parents who want to keep children close at night.

Our home is perfect for:

• Multi-Generational Travel: With 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, child-friendly features, and accessibility for the mobility impaired, the Shearwaterhouse perfectly accommodates three generations of travelers.

• Young Families: At the Shearwaterhouse, babies and toddlers are safe and secure. We have a sturdy baby gate, baby-safe decking, and plans to babyproof further. Even better, the littlest members of your family will love our climbing cube, pack n' play, and other accessories. And parents appreciate our Trex
decking (no splinters!) and kid accessories, like a booster seat and bedroom monitor.

• Family Reunions: Our home is the perfect mix of casual fun and light, open space – a warm and inviting home perfect for family reunions. And if you need extra space, our studio cottage (rents separately) next door can accommodate an additional couple.

• Mobility-Impaired Travelers: The main floor of Shearwaterhouse is accessible, with just one step to the outside, and our master bedroom and bathroom (with walk-in shower) is well suited to mobility-impaired travelers.

* GLBT Friendly

Please note that the Shearwaterhouse is not suited to bachelor or bachelorette parties, loud events, big celebrations, or Spring Breakers. We appreciate your understanding.

What You'll Love:

• Ocean Views: Our home features huge, panoramic ocean views (complete with breaching whales, kite surfers and seals!) from every room. Never for a moment will you forget you're on the coast!

• Spacious Decking: Speaking of those views, there's no better place to drink in the Pacific than from our decking – so expansive, you can see them from space!

• The HOT Tub: When we say hot, we mean hot. Our large, bubbling hot tub (perched on our upper deck!) is always the perfect regulation temperature of 102 – never lukewarm.

• Themed Bedrooms: Ahoy, matey! Choose from our cozy Captain's Quarters, the ethereal Mermaid Lounge, or the out-of-this-world Under the Sea bedroom.

• Make Yourself at Home: The Shearwaterhouse feels like your best friend's home: comfortable and well loved, without being stuffy. Don't worry, you can put your feet up.

Nearby Activities & Attractions:

The Oregon coast is always scenic and always spectacular. We're happy to recommend area attractions and activities for your stay. Here are a few of our favorites:

• Fish for your dinner: Bottom fishing, rock fishing, mussel harvesting, crabbing and clamming are a popular – and tasty! – pastime.

• Hunt for agate: If you're in the market for a beautiful and memorable souvenir, Lincoln city is surrounded by rock-hounding beaches.

• Go antiquing: Antique shops and woodcarvers' galleries dot the regions.

• Enjoy the outdoors: Lincoln City and central Oregon beg to be explored: go hiking, biking, golfing, paddle boating, kayaking and bird watching to see and experience the best of our scenic coast!

• Explore our festivals: There's always an event on the horizon, like Finders Keepers (Lincoln City's glass float festival), the Kite Festival, and others.

• So much more: Take an Oregon wine-tasting tour, learn to blow glass, horseback ride at sunset, visit our farmers markets… the possibilities abound!


Our home features a full range of amenities, among them:

• Baby and toddler accessories, including a sturdy baby gate installed, and another to put where you need it, a deck that has no steps coming off it, a pack 'n play, a climbing cube on the lower deck, a highchair, a booster seat and a baby monitor

• Full kitchen with all the amenities of home

• High-speed broadband Internet

• Cable TVs with DVD players

• Gas fireplace for the family to gather around

• Expansive, circular double decks that draw you outside and expand your family living/dining space

Come, experience Shearwaterhouse and beautiful Lincoln City. We can't wait to welcome you and your family!

Great Stay at Lincoln City Vacation Home 05/10/2011

VRBO Bear stayed here:

The Oregon Coast is one of those magical places you have to experience as soon as you can and as often as possible. That used to be what kept me coming back, but now I’ve got another reason: Shearwater House. April can still be a brisk time of year in Lincoln City, especially when you’re this close to the beach. That didn’t stop me from taking long walks on the water every day and searching for that elusive stone called agate. Once I’d gotten my fill of exploring and was ready to head back up the hill to the house, the hot tub would be waiting for me to relax and reminisce about the day while watching the sun set over the water.

I could easily have stayed at the house and enjoyed the walks, the panoramic ocean views and the cozy fire every day, but there was too much to see! The whale-watching excursion from Depoe Bay took us out on a boat to see if we could catch a glimpse of a grey whale – famous in these parts. I’m convinced he was watching us from the deep as we trolled by.

Debi, Shearwater House’s fearless owner, provided a wonderful list and I took advantage of every suggestion I could cram into my 2 days: Secret Beach at low tide (this is best in the summer); the Newport Aquarium (CUTE puffins!); the lighthouse at Yaquina Head; and Devil’s Punch Bowl (where I had the most amazing clam chowder!)

Grab a group of friends, your whole family (this house sleeps 8-12), or just your honey-bear and head to Shearwater House today!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: High School sweethearts, married since 1971. Because of Debi's time as a travel agent and love of travel, she talked Rob into buying her a beach home in Seal Rock. When they retired from the VA Hospital, they started renting it as a vacation rental. It did so well, that (Debi) wanted another one, and searched for the perfect home for a year until finding the Shearwaterhouse.

Why the Owner Chose Roads End, Lincoln City, OR, USA:
Everything is in the right place! There is a magnificent view of the ocean; amazing deck; it's only a block away from the beach; it has a lovely fireplace and a large hot tub. The upper level - the living level works even for those who have mobility issues. Just one step into the house, and there is access to everything. Perfectly safe for toddler, too!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Why, these amazing circular trex decks, of course! Rob loves to think that you could see them from a satellite zooming past overhead! This is a quiet, safe neighborhood, close beach access. We love that the tide pools are not far away and we can see waaaay far out to sea, spotting whales, crab boats and barges. The house is good for ambulatory-impaired because you can do all your living on the main floor. You don't HAVE to go down the stairs.
