About The Owner

The Boutwell Brothers inherited Charlie's Place from their paternal grandparents, Willard & Gladys Boutwell. The boys, along with their parents, (Burr Sr. and Anne Boutwell) would spend summers and long weekends visiting their grandparents at the beach. Willard & Gladys are gone, but we think you'll feel the warmth and relaxing environment they helped to create at Charlie's Place.

The Owner purchased this house in 1935

Why The Owner chose Lincoln City

Oceanfront, unobstructed ocean views, easy beach access, beautiful sunset.

What makes this house unique

Ocean View! Beachfront!

Listening to the waves breaking against the shoreline guarantees the most restful sleep.

Annual Family Beach Trip

  • 4 of 5

My only comment that was not a plus was that we found the living room furniture to be not very comfortable to sit in and that is where our family gathers for music and conversation. Everything else was great, nice kitchen and comfortable bedrooms, easy beach access and were able to park 5 cars by putting 2 in the garage as was suggested. The weather this weekend made it even nicer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review of Charlie's Place! We appreciate it when our guests give us feedback and we do pay attention. To this end, we have a new sofa in the living room! Hopefully, you'll be completely comfortable when ocean viewing or simply relaxing and watching TV.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family, grandparents, parents, grandkids stayed for a week at Charlie's Place and had a great time. House is as described, roomy with lots of beds (there were 14 of us) and baths (3). Nice and clean but with a beach house feel. The water is right there off the back deck; easy for beach combing, bonfires, tide pool watching, water wading, etc. The house is well equipped with games and books for the evening, but TV (2) is available too. The Lincoln City is convenient to the rest of the coastal activities for fishing, clamming, wine tasting, cheese tasting, de-stressing…

Best of all, the owner is great to work with. She really wants you to have a good time in their family getaway beach house.

Better than I dreamed!

  • 5 of 5

I decided to get my husbands family together for a mini reunion. I needed to find a beachfront property with a bedroom on the main floor for my mother in law. I looked at dozens and dozens of houses with 5+ bedrooms. So many to look at and with varied reviews. I was getting frustrated and finally decided on a house away from the beachfront so that we could get a nice place that fell within our budget. My husband and kids really wanted me to go back to the drawing board and find a beachfront house. For some reason I had not seen Charlies Place the first round through, when I started looking at it I thought it might be too good to be true. Good price and right on the beach! The more I looked the better it seemed. Im a big reader of reviews and everything sounded great! We booked and started making plans. Family flew in from Las Vegas and some drove from Portland and my family drove in from Silverton. We were so very pleased and excited upon arrival. Just the right amount of rustic beach charm and so inviting! The plank dining table was a great spot for monopoly and pizza and gathering around to play cards. Every spot in the house was comfortable and had a view. We LOVE this house!

Jane was wonderful to work with and always got right back to me immediately when I called or emailed. I spoke with her on the day we were to leave and we ended up adding another night to our stay. Our family was so enchanted and never wanted to leave. We had ages 3 to 83 and it was the best family reunion we have had yet!

We plan to go back if our attending family members doesnt grow. This was perfect for the 12 that we had.

Wonderful Reunion Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Booked Charlie's Place for a family reunion and what can i say - it was absolutely perfect. I had many people coming in from across the country and the location (right on the beach) and the house which overlooks the beach was wonderful. We cooked every night, had drinks on the deck, fires on the beach, the little ones were able to run and play on the sand with easy access. They also loved the deep tub on the second floor and so did I. You can read the other great reviews and they are true. Things I appreciated (being a mom to a 9 month old) : lighting on the stairs - how wonderful to see where you are going in the middle of the night!; the deck was made of a wood that i do not think splinters; and downstairs was closed off by a door. The downstairs was a perfect spot for the other little ones(5-8 yr olds) to watch a movie while the adults chatted and played games on the main floor. There is a bedroom on the main floor - granted it doesn't have a beach view but for my nana who cant walk up and down stairs - having a bathroom and room on the main floor was freeing for her. Also - despite having numerous other hotels around this area - the beaches were not crowded! Honestly - this is a wonderful house and location for a reunion. The owners were so helpful and nice. I highly recommend Charlie's place.

Couldn't be more perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in the main part of Charlie's Place, and we couldn't have been happier! The house was cozy, clean, and well appointed, and the location was beyond perfect. There are only a few steps down to the sand, much closer than we anticipated, so with a 3-yr old and a great-grandpa, the beach was easily accessible. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us! We will DEFINITELY be renting from you again.

Absolutely would recommend this home! The house in a great location with excellent beach access. The beds are comfortable and clean. Morning coffee on the deck and the sunsets are amazing too! The owners are easy to work with and check in was a breeze! My family and two others spent an amazing week here and can't wait to come back again! If you are looking for a place that makes you feel like you are staying at Grandma's house this is IT!!!
