Property description

Vacation at Heron Cove
Heron Cove is a modern two-bedroom main house with full bath and separate new guest house with own full bath, located on Ten Mile Lakes in Lakeside, Oregon. Take in the breathtaking views from every room, barbecue on the decks, relax down at the newly-constructed carpeted Cedar Boathouse, kayak around the lake, rent a boat at nearby marina, or simply enjoy the natural beauty of Oregon and let bald eagles, osprey, otters, trout and newts entertain you. The house features a splendid master suite with vaulted ceilings and 8-foot high windows that occupies the entire second floor, as well as separate kids' bedroom, kitchen with full appliances, separate laundry room. Newly-built cabin is right next door.

Ten Mile Lakes
Ten Mile Lakes is one of Oregon's largest and most popular recreation lakes. Fishing is superb year round. Come catch large mouth bass, trout, crappie, bluegill, and catfish. Ten Mile Creek, which feeds into the ocean, provides great steelhead fishing in the spring and fall. With all the fish that abound, you’re also sure to see lots of birds, maybe even an eagle if you are lucky. If fishing isn't your thing there are large open areas on the lake that are perfect for all types of watercraft sports including: boating, jet skiing, canoeing, and kayaking.

Lakeside, Oregon
Lakeside is located on the Oregon coast about midway between North Bend and Reedspord, three miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, sheltered from onshore winds by the Oregon National Dunes. Average temperatures in the 60s to 70s in the summer and 50s in the winter. The drive from Eugene is just under two hours. Visitors primarily come to Lakeside for outdoor activities associated with Ten Mile Lakes and the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, which include waterskiing, jet skiing, beachcombing, camping, fishing, hunting, boating, hiking, scuba diving, dune riding, wind surfing, horseback riding, swimming, picnicking, and sightseeing.

House Details
In addition to the master suite, the main house offers a second bedroom with a twin/full bunkbed, perfect for the kids. A third bedroom, with a full-sized bed and private bathroom is located adjacent the main house in a newly built separate cabin. The main house living room has a full sized futon couch, dining table, fully furnished kitchen, washer/dryer, VCR, house and beach towels. The new cedar boathouse is carpeted with tables, chairs, and propane stove.

Note: As stated below, Heron Cove requires a minimum THREE-NIGHT STAY and--to ensure to quietude of neighbors and protect septic system--there is an ABSOLUTE LIMIT OF SIX GUESTS AT ALL TIMES, which can be monitored.

Note2: Heron Cove is located six miles from Lakeside, the last two along well-maintained gravel road. There is little turnaround at the house, so trailers of all kinds should be left at Sunlake Marina (1/4 mile away). During winter months, the fairly steep driveway makes all-wheel-drive a plus, though you can also park along road. Please be advised that the walkway from house down to the boat house might be rigorous for retirees (ramp and twenty steps).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are an active family from Eugene, Oregon. Mia is a faculty member at the University of Oregon and Michael is a writer. Our two girls are in elementary school.

Why the Owner Chose Lakeside, OR, USA:
We wanted a place where we could relax, bring friends, be astounded by the natural beauty of Oregon, and watch our kids grow. Two recent favorite memories: watching an eagle fly by while we were down at the boathouse sipping our morning coffee, and watching the kids march back down to the lake to go swimming for the gazillionth time that day. Pure bliss.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Watching eagle, osprey, and heron in their natural habitat, playing with newts and other water critters. Going for a kayak. The house is very peaceful and a wonderful place to unwind.
