RiverSpace is a large, bright private room at one end of a country house. Surrounded by 16 acres of forest and meadow on a quiet country road, this is an ideal location for anyone who wants distraction-free time to write, study, meditate or just get away from it all. Although the ocean is only ten miles away, this is a different climate zone--often sunny and warm when the beach isn't! Some guests see RiverSpace as a sanctuary, a chance to sink into the natural world, where the only sound is the murmur of the river, the only lights come from the stars overhead, and the air is full of the rejuvenating scent of fir and cedar. RiverSpace lends itself to quiet and solitude but it is also a great place from which to access all the sight-seeing and recreational opportunities of the central Oregon coast. After an active day, you come 'home' to a warm cozy room and oh yes, a hot tub from which to gaze at the moon! It's also a Good Deal: there are no extra charges (except for pets), no cleaning fee, and no taxes!

I have lived in the Yachats area for 20 years, in Oregon since 1969. Most recently i have been the marketing director for the town of Yachats, but am about to return to my first love, writing. I love this area because of the easy access to nature and I have hiked all of the trails and many of the forest roads in the area.
Andrea purchased this studio in 1999
This is my personal residence. I have chosen to make the master bedroom available as a vacation rental, with a separate entrance and no access from the rest of the house. Like the rest of the property, it provides a quiet retreat in a beautiful setting, nestled in the trees but still close to the beach, the little town of Yachats, and great hiking trails. Many of my guests tell me this is a 'sanctuary' where they find tranquility and restoration of mind, spirit, and body.
Privacy; peace and quiet; natural beauty; wildlife viewing (elk frequently roam across the meadows); places to walk along the river, up on the ridge, or along the country road; easy access to the beach, local shops and restaurants, and various tourist attractions such as the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area.After an active day on the beach, you return to a cozy room and a rejuvenating hot tub.
My partner and I spent three nights this past weekend at RiverSpace, and were very happy! The land is beautiful, and there are lots of big windows in the room so you can enjoy the scenery from inside as well. I think another reviewer said they plan to get the same hot tub when they get their own, and I would agree - we really enjoyed it. Andrea is not able to have more than a microwave, toaster and coffee pot in the kitchenette (due to zoning laws, I think) so you'll have to enjoy eating out and not having to clean up!
Great place to relax and hear nothing but nature. Hot tub was great. I had never stayed in the midst of a forest and away from the TV and I had a great experience at Andrea and Sy's place.
I was gifted three years ago w/ a stay at RiverSpace. The serenity of the property, and the respectful treatment from the owner soothed my sore, grieving heart then. This year, I treated myself to another stay, this one longer. I was not disappointed. Again, the serenity of the space (which I made my own w/ 'stuff' I had brought from home), and the pleasant, kind respectful energy from the owner once again soothed. The room was delightful, warm, and cozy...the Tempurpedic bed gave me great sleep. I did not use the hot tub this year, but spent lots of time on the Yachats beach. The Mushroom Festival was extraordinary! I would, and DO, recommend this property to friends and acquaintances.
We drove up and were greeted by a smiling Andrea (the owner) and a beautiful, friendly dog. She walked us through the room, and told us a bit about the property then it was nothing but peace, quiet and tranquility. The room was immaculate and the property was very fun to explore. When we finally buy our own hot tub, I will definitely want the same model as RiverSpace. Went home feeling refreshed and recharged.
This was the most peaceful getaway we have experienced yet. Living in a busy city, we both work full time and have children so to have an entire week with nothing but the beauty of Oregon surrounding us was amazing! Andrea and Sy were incredibly hospitable. She genuinely cares for her customers and we could feel it the moment we met her. The room was perfect, private and the spa was enjoyed nightly. We highly recommend this gem of a retreat!
Riverspace provided us a with a restful, relaxing getaway. We loved the bird calls everywhere, the quiet murmur of the nearby creek, and the lush beauty of the yard, garden, and surrounding forest. Absence of traffic noise was another plus. Terrific bed, by the way. Our best nights of sleep in a long time! Andrea was the perfect host--friendly and informative without ever seeming obtrusive. It was great to be close to Yachats, our favorite town on the central Oregon coast.
The central Oregon coast features great choices for activities, from fine dining to mountain biking, shopping to kayaking. The beach is just 15 minutes from the property and many other attractions are just another 10 or 15 minutes away--all along very scenic drives. The Cape Perpetua National Scenic Area offers miles of trails through coastal forests, tidepooling, spectacular views, and an interpretive center full of information (and helpful guides) about this area. There are three lighthouses within a 45 minute drive of the property. Alsea Bay to the north offers fishing, crabbing, clamming, and kayaking--and equipment rentals to support each activity. The bay is a designated Significant Birding Area where you can see eagles, herons, many species of ducks, etc. In the fall, Yachats features the annual Mushroom Festival--or you can just go foraging through the woods to identify and collect an incredible variety of fungi. RiverSpace is on a forest road that connects to a network of gravel roads that are perfect for mountain bikes. The Pacific Ocean is just 15 minutes away, with long sandy stretches of beach and also trails along rocky bluffs where you can see 'spouting horns' of ocean spray--and out to sea you can spot actual whale spouts as the huge marine mammals pursue their annual migrations between Mexico and Alaska. Many guests plan day trips--north takes you to Newport's Aquarium and the Hatfield Marine Center, plus lots of fun restaurants and shops. South takes you to Florence and the remarkable sand dunes, plus more shops and restaurants. And Yachats itself offers plenty of opportunities for shopping and dining--unique businesses where the owner is usually on hand to give you personal attention.
