Why we like it

In Oregon, “going to the coast” doesn’t always mean “going to the beach.” This lakefront cabin is living proof. A one-of-a-kind getaway to unplug and unwind—or host a few generations of family. You’ll probably want to spend the whole trip taking in the secluded landscape or lounging on the dock. That is, when you’re not enjoying the comfy living area overlooking the lake!

What’s nearby

If you end up wanting to go exploring, Old Town Florence, the beach, iconic Heceta Head lighthouse, and some of the best sand dunes in the state are all five to ten miles away.

Things to know

When we say secluded, we mean it: The driveway is over a mile long and incredibly steep. Boat trailers and similar equipment are impossible to take down this road, and even low profile cars run into occasional trouble. But outside the house, there’s plenty of parking!

May be best to arrive while it’s light—easier to locate your hidden retreat!

Dogs are allowed, but should be leashed when they’re outside.

About Vacasa, OR - Oregon Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Cozy Lake house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on the lake! The house was perfect for our family and we enjoyed a lot of quality time on the lake. We were glad our rental car was an SUV because the road leading to the house was a little intense, but once you reach the house it's well worth it and easy to get back in to town for dinner/activities/etc

Great but with a few problems

  • 4 of 5

It was inferred in the description of the property that two kayaks would be included with our stay which is the main reason we rented this property. No kayaks. There were no chairs to sit on on the top deck so we had to drag a couple of them from downstairs. Directions to the house were pretty accurate until we got to the end. There were no specific directions to turn left or right at the very end.

Wonderful views and nice dock. rustic cabin with awkward layout.

  • 3 of 5

Wonderful views on a quiet side of Mercer Lake. Rickety splintery stairs, overgrown, to a nice dock. Be careful! House has musty cabin smell downstairs which is not unusual but think there might be water damage issues given state of roof and gutters and evidence of other deferred maintenance. Nice hand-painted details and faux finishing but investment in updating would be more appreciated. Floor plan including no connection between first and second floor is a challenge. Lastly, that neighbor is really a concern. To decrease interaction with him over this ridiculous shared driveway issue- change the signage from "Visitor Parking" (x3) which sounds like a suggestion and a courtesy, to a more directive "no parking" because apparently it's his septic drainage area(?) and parking there is a trigger for him.

Remote and beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

If you're wanting a super remote stay with quiet, secluded lake access, this is the spot for you! The view was absolutely stunning. Wish it had been warmer when we were there so we could go in the lake. Oh well, next time.

Not very clean.

  • 2 of 5

Well it was a cute and cozy cabin... We had to call and complain because it was garbage scattered all over outside. The screen door was broken, the window screen was broken, and the bad smell of urine. The porch was littered with sticks and leaves. We had to call and complain to have a maintenance person come clean it all up.

The staff accommodated us for early check in. Greatly appreciated. However home was not in good shape. Garbage scattered all over outside. Storm door broken. Window screen broken. Deck was littered with sticks and debri. Downstaires bed smelled of urine. When I called and complained, they had it addressed within hour (other than stinky mattress).

Owner's Response: We apologize for the issues the guest experienced upon arrival and appreciate their patience as we rectified matters. The Property Manager has not noticed any odor with the mattress and has found the mattress and bedding to all be stain free and clean.
