Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

RiverSpace is a large, bright private room at one end of a country house. Surrounded by 16 acres of forest and meadow on a quiet country road, this is an ideal location for anyone who wants distraction-free time to write, study, meditate or just get away from it all. Although the ocean is only ten miles away, this is a different climate zone--often sunny and warm when the beach isn't! RiverSpace can be a quiet retreat or home-base for exploring the gorgeous scenery of the Oregon coast. It can be a sanctuary or the starting point for great mountain biking on miles of forest roads. You can sink deep into the natural world, where the only sound is the murmur of the river, the only lights come from the stars overhead, and the air is full of the rejuvenating scent of fir and cedar. However you choose to spend your day, your warm cozy room awaits you--and oh yes, there's a hot tub from which to gaze at the moon! It's quiet and private, a perfect getaway for a few days or more. Well-behaved dogs are welcome--it's a super place for a dog vacation too!

About Andrea

I'm a writer working on a nonfiction local history book. I've lived here for 20 years. I love this area because of the easy access to nature and I have hiked all of the trails and many of the forest roads in the area. I'm happy to share info about things to see and do--and most important: where to eat!

Andrea purchased this studio in 1999

Why Andrea chose Central Coast

This is my personal residence. RiverSpace, the rental unit, used to be the master bedroom. With its own private entrance, deck area, and access to the hot tub, RiverSpace provides a quiet retreat in a beautiful setting, nestled in the trees but still close to the beach, the little town of Yachats, and great hiking trails. Many of my guests tell me this is a 'sanctuary' where they find tranquility and restoration of mind, spirit, and body. I really enjoy sharing the beauty of this place with others.

What makes this studio unique

Privacy; peace and quiet; natural beauty; wildlife viewing (elk frequently roam across the meadows); places to walk along the river, up on the ridge, or along the country road; easy access to the beach, local shops and restaurants, and various tourist attractions such as the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area.After an active day on the beach, you return to a cozy room and a rejuvenating hot tub.

Beautiful, quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

We found this spot to be very relaxing. The owner greeted us and otherwise allowed us our privacy. She supplied the space well. The location was exactly as described, and though we would have liked a cooking space and laundry facilities we made do and breathed in the quiet and beauty around us.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at RiverSpace. I would love to provide a full kitchen, but can't due to zoning restrictions. I recently had the kitchenette built, which allows guests to prepare simple meals. Hopefully, like you, most guests find the peace and quiet more than compensates. (Plus there are some really good restaurants in Yachats and nearby towns!)

A Great hidden getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is awesome! It has amazing views of the lush forest, and offers a level of privacy that's difficult to find when looking for a vacation rental. The room was excellently and comfortably furnished, and was a welcome place to rest and relax after a long day of exploring the coast. The hot tub was an incredible addition to our relaxation.

During our stay, there was an issue that caused the rental to temporarily be without water. Even though it was beyond her control, the owner went out of her way to ensure that we were taken care of. Her willingness to go above and beyond along with the beauty and peacefulness of this rental will definitely have us staying there again the next time we're in the area.

Owner's Response: I really enjoyed having these guests at RiverSpace. Not only were they obviously having a good time, they were amazingly flexible about the water problem. This happens very rarely, and I get it fixed as quickly as i can, but the guests were really super about it. They are very welcome to return!

Serene

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place, comfortable dwelling, luxurious hot tub. Just far enough outside of Yachats to feel secluded in the wooded mountains by the river, yet a hop, skip and jump from the coast.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very nice review! Between the mountains and the sea--with a river too! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay.

A quiet, peaceful getaway nestled in the woods

  • 4 of 5

It was a lovely space to spend my weekend. The location was secluded off the beaten path on a forest road, and it had nice large windows throughout to let in natural light and the greenery of the surrounding forest. It was rainy for most of my stay, but I loved the sunlight coming through the windows and the sound of birds chirping on the morning of my departure.

Map

The central Oregon coast features great choices for activities, from fine dining to mountain biking, shopping to kayaking. The beach is just 15 minutes from the property and many other attractions are just another 10 or 15 minutes away--all along very scenic drives. The Cape Perpetua National Scenic Area offers miles of trails through coastal forests, tidepooling, spectacular views, and an interpretive center full of information (and helpful guides) about this area. There are three lighthouses within a 45 minute drive of the property. Alsea Bay to the north offers fishing, crabbing, clamming, and kayaking--and equipment rentals to support each activity. The bay is a designated Significant Birding Area where you can see eagles, herons, many species of ducks, etc. In the fall, Yachats features the annual Mushroom Festival--or you can just go foraging through the woods to identify and collect an incredible variety of fungi. RiverSpace is on a forest road that connects to a network of gravel roads that are perfect for mountain bikes. The Pacific Ocean is just 15 minutes away, with long sandy stretches of beach and also trails along rocky bluffs where you can see 'spouting horns' of ocean spray--and out to sea you can spot actual whale spouts as the huge marine mammals pursue their annual migrations between Mexico and Alaska. Many guests plan day trips--north takes you to Newport's Aquarium and the Hatfield Marine Center, plus lots of fun restaurants and shops. South takes you to Florence and the remarkable sand dunes, plus more shops and restaurants. And Yachats itself offers plenty of opportunities for shopping and dining--unique businesses where the owner is usually on hand to give you personal attention.
