Though, along the Oregon Coast, the vast Pacific often steals the show, there are beautiful, out of the way places - lakes and dunes - with their own distinctive beauty. Lake Woahink is just such a place, and nestled on an idyllic patch of its shoreline is this gorgeous, five-bedroom Florence vacation rental home with a separate cottage, room for 10 (max., 12), your doggy (though a nightly fee per dog and a minimum fee per stay will apply), and your even your boat at the private dock. Just a short, six-minute drive north is shopping and dining in colorful Florence. On the opposite bank is Honeyman State Park, and 30 minutes south are the beautiful white sands of Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.
Spend your day at Heceta Head Lighthouse, then come back to this lovely home where you'll relax in this large, open living space with plenty of comfortable furniture. Kick your shoes off, make yourself a cup of tea and put your feet up on the recliner as you listen to music from one of the CDs you brought along. When the cold, coastal wind creeps in over the lake, you'll be warm and snug in front of the wood fireplace. Spread out a board game and have some fun in front of the crackling fire. Pack some DVDs to enjoy as well and pass the time with a movie. When it's nice, experience the foliage and the water up close out on the big deck. You can sit out here in the evening as well, warmed by a fire in the outdoor firepit.
When you're hungry, sit down for a meal at one of the many restaurants in Florence, or, put on the apron for a meal in this home's fully equipped kitchen where you'll find everything you need to create a hearty meal - breakfast, lunch, or dinner! In addition to a stove and microwave, you can gather in the morning 'round a big pile of waffles made in the waffle iron, or savor a nourishing soup cooked for hours in the slow cooker. When the meal's done, sit down in front of the big picture window and enjoy a view of the lake from the bench style dining table. Weather permitting, get the charcoals glowing in the grill out back and barbeque your burgers or salmon.
In the main house, there are four bedrooms and room for 10; two are downstairs. One has a comfy queen bed, the other two twins. There's a full bathroom down here with a walk-in shower. Head upstairs where you'll find two more bedrooms, also with a queen in one, and two twins in the other. You'll find another full bathroom as well. The home has a washer and dryer as well, so those suitcases needn't be so heavy.
If you're traveling with extra people who'd like their own space, two of them can stay in the cute little cottage out back where they can bed down on a queen bed and another full bath. This cozy space has a comfortable living area where you can escape with a book, or watch a movie on the VCR. There's a kitchenette too, complete with a small fridge and a microwave for warming up leftovers, movie popcorn, or a quick snack.
If you've got the boat, there are launches just across the lake. Once you're out there, try your luck for one of the resident largemouth bass, trout, or perch. Bluegill, Cutthroat and Rainbow trout are waiting for you in nearby lakes like Siltcoos, Tahkenitch, and Lily. Challenge yourself to a hike on the dunes down at Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, about a half-hour away. Or, for a unique experience, see what it's like to board on sand over at Sand Master Park, just a 15-minute drive to the north. And yes, golfers, you can tee up at Sandpipes Golf Course. Take the kids and the camera over to Sea Lion Caves and watch them cavort on the rocks. For a fun night out, make your way to Three Rivers Casino where you can enjoy dinner, a show, and a chance with Lady Luck.
Experience another aspect of Oregon's rich and diverse coastal region from the comfort of this lovely home nestled right on the shore of Lake Woahink. You'll enjoy the privacy and tranquility of lakeside living, and proximity to the many sites and activities that abound in the Florence area!
