Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)
This historic 1922 bungalow in the heart of Yachats village was restored from the foundation up, started in 2010 and completed in 2012. It's located at 362 W. 2nd Street and as the name says, everything is just a “stone’s throw” away. You’re just two doors down from Yachats’ State Park where you can whale watch, play frisbee, or wander down to the rocky marine preserve where tide pools and agates abound. Watch flocks of pelicans wheel by, as otters and seals peek from the surf. When the tide is low, you can walk all the way down to where the 804 trail meets the ocean at the Adobe, and from there it is just another short walk along the 804 to the sandy beach – seven miles of it.
Or, head into town, just two blocks away, where you’ll find restaurants like Heidi’s Homemade Italian and the Drift Inn or head down to the Wine Place for some fine wine tasting. Enjoy some of the many events held at the Yachats commons, or wander through the farmer’s market in front of the commons on a Sunday morning. If you have kids with you, you’ll find a playground just behind the commons with the best tree house on the coast. Just a block and a half from your doorway, you’ll find the Little Log Church, now a historical museum, or wander over to Toad Hall or Rain Dogs for some gift shopping. And for breakfast and the best locally roasted coffee, we recommend The Green Salmon, just two blocks from your doorstep.
If you want to stay inside, you’ll find retro charm and modern comfort. A wood-fired stove warms the living room, next to a sofa and two easy chairs and a bookcase full of everything from mysteries to classics. There’s even a piano for the musically inclined. One bedroom features a queen bed and a foldout double. The other features a king, four-poster bed, mood lighting and a faux fireplace for warmth and atmosphere. The dining area seats 6 to 8, or head into the kitchen and enjoy the great view from the retro bar. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and entertaining, including a microwave. And beyond that, the den opens up on an incredible view through four large picture windows. Enjoy the sight of Cape Perpetua as the sun sinks toward the sea. Relax in the cozy sofa or armchair and watch TV or one of the many DVD’s on hand. There are plenty of board games and puzzles in the den as well, and at night, the sofa folds out into a double bed. The bathroom is also fully remodeled with a roomy, tiled shower and bath tub (and a great shower head!).
This little gem of a house is a unique property. The historic Yachats village neighborhood comprises just a few square blocks, and this is one of the few remaining original bungalows restored to its former glory. Unlike many properties, no driving is required once you park your car! It’s great for a couple seeking a romantic weekend close to everything, for a family with kids looking for some easy, family fun, or two couples enjoying a joint vacation. It sleeps four comfortably in the first bedroom, two in the den, and two in the second bedroom (you can fight over who gets the king-sized bed). Whatever your requirements, give Stones Throw Bungalow a try, and we promise you’ll enjoy your stay.

About Johnny and Julie Mathison
We're a family of four with two young children.
Johnny and Julie Mathison purchased this Bungalow in 2010
Why Johnny and Julie Mathison chose Yachats
We fell in love with Yachats years ago and knew when we found this unique, historic bungalow that it was ideal for restoration. Yachats is a special village, like a step back into simpler times. We've always loved the natural beauty, but what we learned after spending time in Yachats is just how wonderful the community is. It's a tight knit community filled with people who care and get involved. We hope you find it to be as special as we have.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Historic character coupled with modern comfort and attention to detail. Materials and design were selected to harken back to the 40s and 50s. Very few vacation rentals are situated in this historic neighborhood, so close to everything. We've also retained the beach bungalow style.

Great place to wind down
This is our 3rd time here! It is homey, quiet, close to the ocean & to town! We really like the 2 sitting areas, well equipped kitchen, 2 stoves & 2 different places to eat inside. It's always clean & everything is well taken care of. There is a pride of ownership & the decor is tasteful :)
Stones Throw says it all!
Updated and well provisioned little cottage. Curb appeal (gopher mounds and rust) a little off putting. State Park just 1/2 block down the street, grocery store 1/2 block the other way. Yachats has galleries, trails and restaurants galore!
Thanks, Sandra. The moles have been invading the neighborhood, but we’ve put in repellers and grass seed, so hopefully they’ll move in. Things do rust out here quickly, but we’ll be converting the garage into a studio with French doors, so come back sometime and check it out :-)
Great location and space
Within walking distance is the coast, a grocery store, a brewery, multiple restaurants, a bakery and a cafe that serves full breakfast and lunch. The space is warm, welcoming and includes all the amenities you could need. Thanks for the stay!
Charming Bungalow near the coast
This is a cute, comfortable place in the coastal village of Yachats. It's within walking distance of hiking and great coffee and food. We had great weather, but if it was storming it would be a great place to hunker down. The owners respond quickly to inquiries and promptly returned our damage deposit after we checked out
Cozy, comfortable, and well-stocked home in a fabulous location.
We had a lovely stay at the cottage. The location is absolutely wonderful; both the beach and the market are about a 2 minute walk away. House was well stocked with everything we needed - plenty of dishes, pots, a LARGE coffee pot (welcome change from the last few places we've rented), and even a crock pot. We only used the regular beds so I can't speak about the sofa beds, but both beds were comfortable. I'm sure there are fancier places in Yachats, but for the price this place can't be beat - it was perfect for our family and we're looking forward to another stay here.
Beautiful home away from home
Home was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Close to everything as name A Stones Throw suggests! Highly recommend this beauty!
Tide-pooling, agate hunting, playground blocks away, Cape Perpetua nearby, steps to whale watching at State Park
