The Little Cabin on the River is licensed through the Coos County Public Health Department, State of Oregon.
Hideout in a coastal forest. Built in the early 60's as a fishing retreat, it is a perfect getaway for two adults. 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.
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.
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, and in the winter warm cozy flannel sheets and down comforter. There is a small bunk area off of the main bedroom with one small built-in rustic bed.
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.
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. Enjoy their corn maze and cannon, and the best apple cider in the state.
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.
(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.)

About Tom & Dee Jackson
We enjoy fishing, gardening, and hiking. My husband has been fishing here since he was eight years old. We both enjoy the awesome seclusion of this area. This picture, taken in front of the cabin, shows my husband, Tom, with a fresh caught steelhead. Caught 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!
Tom & Dee Jackson purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Tom & Dee Jackson chose Coos Bay
Tom grew up alongside this little cabin. When it came up for sale in 2010, we couldn't think of anything better than to open it to family, friends, and travelers. Tom's 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.
What makes this Cabin unique
You can really enjoy all of the seasons here. We 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 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 family's favorite things to do, so we live where they can do that. Even our five-year old Great-Granddaughter fishes with her Papa. In Spring everything is green, the birds start to nest, and the mountains are covered with beautiful morning mist.

Sweet little cabin
The ride in was a little daunting...my friend who was with me was a bit terrified of the drop offs off the side of the narrow road.
Once we were there, however, couldn’t have asked for better. Sweet little cabin, and great view of the river at the dining room table. I loved the little hooks everywhere. Good clear instructions. Liked the gas “wood” stove.
I have a suggestion about the communication of the lock box code. Could it please be put in the body of the email once the last payment has been made? It was several clicks in on the VRBO-controlled communications and I hadn’t written it down and was going into an area with no cell coverage, so I was worried that I couldn’t find it online. It if had been in the body of the email it would have been downloaded in my email and thus more available.
I am sorry that the lock box code was a problem. In all fairness, the code was sent not once, but twice, before your visit. You did request it again, by text and well within cell phone coverage, saying you misplaced it. It was sent and you had it in hand when arriving.
Regarding the road, I am sorry that you felt it was unsafe, but the road is county and state maintained, therefore safe for all travelers. We are in a rural area and the waterfalls are not right off a main highway so, of course the road is a country road, but one that allows guests to see up close and personal, the natural beauty of the Oregon coastal range without the crowds found elsewhere. The falls have been described as a hidden gem. I hope you were able to see them during your stay.
Wishing you safe travels.
Wish I could give a million stars!
The little cabin on the river was so delightful! It was so perfect and relaxing. There are really not enough words to describe just how wonderful it was. It was like a dream come true. We will definitely be returning.
Perfect Hidden Gem
It was wonderful to stay in such a beautiful location. Rained most of my stay so I wasn't able to enjoy all it had to offer. Loved the waterfalls, very worth the hike.
Wonderful Cabin by the river
This place is perfect for lovers of woods and trees,ferns and mosses. The hummingbird feeder provides continuous entertainment. The river itself has a hilarious goose who floats down then swims or flys back. The Stellar jays live up to their name. Leave all that traffic noise behind and come here for nature at its finest. Don’t forget to learn about myrtlewood.
