Ocean Dream is a serene retreat in Yachats - gem of the Oregon Coast. Built in 2007, it features a knotty pine interior, crank handled wooden windows, and historical architectural touches guaranteed to delight. It is cozy and comfortable, and it's just steps to the beach. From every room, you can look out over the estuary where the Yachats River flows into the ocean and watch the changing tides and gorgeous sunsets. Open the gate in the yard, go down the steps, and cross the road (Hwy. 101, but it's just 2 lanes, 25 mph) to two state parks, one of which features the best sandy beaches and swimming in town.
If you're a cook, you'll appreciate the herb garden's fresh oregano, mint (great for mojitos!), rosemary, and thyme. In the summer, feel free to use the organic roses to make a batch of rose petal jam; or trim some lavender to add to a glass of cold lemonade.
Yachats itself is a charming village with great restaurants and shops, including a market and video rental store. The 804 trail lets you walk for miles along the ocean. You can enjoy a massage and ocean view hot tub at a local resort. You can also drive a short way to hike to the top of Cape Perpetua through temperate rain forest, visit Heceta Head Lighthouse, descend into the world's largest sea lion caves, climb the sand dunes in Florence, stroll Newport's bay front and visit microbreweries or the aquarium, or enjoy a kayaking excursion in local rivers and marshes. Or stay inside with a book, some music, and the fireplace.
Ocean Dream is a place to relax, unwind, and reconnect with nature and yourself. Call our property manager, Ocean Odyssey, to check availability and rates.
Make your ocean dreams come true!
Elaine Watkins is a retired high school English and history teacher who now lives in Santa Rosa, California. She fell in love with Yachats many years ago and vowed to have a home right where Ocean Dream now stands. She loves to travel and has a passion for organic gardening.
Yachats has that special energy - it's an intimate, open-minded, friendly small town with excellent amenities. You can walk anywhere - the beach is just steps away - and the forest comes right down to the shore. A river runs out to the ocean, creating an estuary where we've watched whales and eagles in the same afternoon. The restaurants are excellent, and you can walk to the market and buy anything you'd need to make a delicious meal. On a rainy day, you can go to the local spa, have a massage, and sit in the soaking tub watching the waves.
Ocean Dream is charming! The interior is knotty pine, and you can curl up by the fireplace and see the tides go in and out while you read a book or watch a movie. Tide changes are a feature all our guests comment on - the estuary makes the differences quite dramatic. You stop watching the clock and instead tell time by the ocean. At low tide, go through the gate and down the steps. Walk out on the beach and fly a kite, take a summer swim, or watch the sun set. This is a place of true serenity.
