Overview

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.

* GLBTQ Friendly, All Races Welcome

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!

Amenities

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

• Free 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!

About Debi Hertert

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.

Debi Hertert purchased this house in 2009

Why Debi Hertert chose Lincoln City

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!

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! This was our first family vacation as a family of four!



The deck, the view, the hot tub, everything is perfect here. We wish we could have stayed longer. Our almost 2 yr old and 8 mo old LOVED the beach and playing in the sand.

Beauty Abounds!

  • 5 of 5

The word "wow" was repeated time and time again by our family as we spent a week in this amazing retreat surrounded by breathtaking scenery. The beauty of the Oregon Coast - both north and south of Roads End - is perhaps unparalleled across this country. Big trees, big waves, big rocks and big whales made for big days for our family, but this comfortable retreat made it easy to rest our weary wheels and prepare for yet another day of visiting beaches, tide pools, wineries, mountains, aquariums, breweries, trails, etc. We couldn't have picked a better house, or location or host!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The view is amazing. This house was perfect for our family. Everyone was happy and comfortable from the 3year old to 15 years old. House is fully stocked. Having the downstairs entrance with the washer and dryer after coming back from the beach was amazing. I would stay again...never wanted to leave!!

PERFECT EXTENDED OR MULTI-FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place for a multi-generational get together, or to share with multiple families. Everything we needed for a perfect week was right there. Everyone had their own space and room, and the kitchen / living room area combined with the spacious patio made for perfect sharing. Most everything you need is already there for whatever fresh catch you want to prepare.

Debi could't be more accomadating and easy to work with. Our toddler and 7 year old grandsons were a little rambuncious, and she was very gracious over the broken candy dish. Can't wait to go back next year!

Owner's Response: We were delighted to have you there! I must say the picture of your grandsons on the deck floated my boat! We love nothing better than to see that our guests are enjoying themselves. Rob and I will be delighted to have you come stay again.
