Five stars do not give this wonderful retreat justice. The beauty of the 25 acres by itself would get five starts. You add on top of that the wonderful house, access to the river that goes into the ocean, all the blackberries you and your kids can eat or make jam out of (we made 36 pints), and the location of not being too far away from town (but far away enough from it all), account as only a small dent into the tranquil home in Lincoln City, Oregon. Now if all of that would not give it a five you have a wonderful host, David, that makes sure your vacation is all that you want it to be. He treated us as close to royalty as it gets without being a cousin or brother to Prince William.
Our family, with little kids, used this magnificent rental as a base camp to all that Lincoln City had to offer; fishing in the river and ocean, crabbing in the ocean, kite flying, hiking, waterfall exploring, tide pool exploration, farmer markets, organic at the farm shopping, best chocolate milk tasting, touring cheese factories, and as you can see the list could go on and on. The rental really was in the heart of everything we wanted from Lincoln City or for that matter what Oregon has to offer.
It might sound as though we are gushing over this place and that is true, we are. The only negative item would be the speed of the internet but our great host David is already on top of that and getting more bandwidth delivered so there will be no issues for those that come after us.
When you go, get ready to enjoy a vacation how you want to enjoy a vacation because everything is at your fingertips. You just have to make the decisions. The house is very well equipped both in the kitchen as well as the amenities inside the garage. There was a kayak and canoe ready for us to use. The jacuzzi had also been drained and sanitized before our arrival. The BBQ and fire pit were prepared with charcoal and wood also.
David thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us. We so enjoyed your superb rental, hospitality, and friendship. We will be in contact many years from now.
