CHARMING LAKEFRONT HOME WITH GUEST HOUSE AND CEDAR BOATHOUSE

Lakeside House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Vacation at Heron Cove

Heron Cove is a modern two-bedroom main house with full bath and separate new guest house with own full bath, located on Ten Mile Lakes in Lakeside, Oregon. Take in the breathtaking views from every room, barbecue on the decks, relax down at the newly-constructed carpeted Cedar Boathouse, kayak around the lake, rent a boat at nearby marina, or simply enjoy the natural beauty of Oregon and let bald eagles, osprey, otters, trout and newts entertain you. The house features a splendid master suite with vaulted ceilings and 8-foot high windows that occupies the entire second floor, as well as separate kids' bedroom, kitchen with full appliances, separate laundry room. Newly-built cabin is right next door.

Ten Mile Lakes

Ten Mile Lakes is one of Oregon's largest and most popular recreation lakes. Fishing is superb year round. Come catch large mouth bass, trout, crappie, bluegill, and catfish. Ten Mile Creek, which feeds into the ocean, provides great steelhead fishing in the spring and fall. With all the fish that abound, you’re also sure to see lots of birds, maybe even an eagle if you are lucky. If fishing isn't your thing there are large open areas on the lake that are perfect for all types of watercraft sports including: boating, jet skiing, canoeing, and kayaking.

Lakeside, Oregon

Lakeside is located on the Oregon coast about midway between North Bend and Reedspord, three miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, sheltered from onshore winds by the Oregon National Dunes. Average temperatures in the 60s to 70s in the summer and 50s in the winter. The drive from Eugene is just under two hours. Visitors primarily come to Lakeside for outdoor activities associated with Ten Mile Lakes and the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, which include waterskiing, jet skiing, beachcombing, camping, fishing, hunting, boating, hiking, scuba diving, dune riding, wind surfing, horseback riding, swimming, picnicking, and sightseeing.

House Details

In addition to the master suite, the main house offers a second bedroom with a twin/full bunkbed, perfect for the kids. A third bedroom, with a full-sized bed and private bathroom is located adjacent the main house in a newly built separate cabin. The main house living room has a full sized futon couch, dining table, fully furnished kitchen, washer/dryer, VCR, house and beach towels. The new cedar boathouse is carpeted with tables, chairs, and propane stove.

Note: As stated below, Heron Cove requires a minimum THREE-NIGHT STAY and--to ensure to quietude of neighbors and protect septic system--there is an ABSOLUTE LIMIT OF SIX GUESTS AT ALL TIMES, which can be monitored.

Note2: Heron Cove is located six miles from Lakeside, the last two along well-maintained gravel road. There is little turnaround at the house, so trailers of all kinds should be left at Sunlake Marina (1/4 mile away). During winter months, the fairly steep driveway makes all-wheel-drive a plus, though you can also park along road. Please be advised that the walkway from house down to the boat house might be rigorous for retirees (ramp and twenty steps).

We are an active family from Eugene, Oregon. Mia is a faculty member at the University of Oregon and Michael is a writer. Our two girls are in elementary school.

michael welch purchased this house in 2010

We wanted a place where we could relax, bring friends, be astounded by the natural beauty of Oregon, and watch our kids grow. Two recent favorite memories: watching an eagle fly by while we were down at the boathouse sipping our morning coffee, and watching the kids march back down to the lake to go swimming for the gazillionth time that day. Pure bliss.

Watching eagle, osprey, and heron in their natural habitat, playing with newts and other water critters. Going for a kayak. The house is very peaceful and a wonderful place to unwind.

Fun on the Lake

  • 3 of 5
Dealing with the owner, Michael, was easy and expedient. The property was explained adequately on VRBO. Four adults and two kids spent six days. It is a good thing we didn't all get there at once as the cleaning lady didn't finish cleaning until 7:00 p.m. (4:00 check in). When we arrived we felt like we were guests in someone's home; their personal clothes, cupboard food, refrigerator food, and bathroom items were in the various cupboards, drawers, or on one of the four clothes hangers. We moved the the owners' stuff to the side and tried to make the stay convenient for us. There were few places to put our clothes and supplies--we lived out of our bags and boxes for the week. The kitchen was adequately supplied except for oven cook ware; we borrowed from the cleaning lady (who was very helpful). There were burned out lights in the living room and few places to sit. Bath towels looked a bit dirty with holes in some.
The water tastes and smells terrible. It was suggested we bring our own drinking water and were glad we did.
The boat house on the water with diving board and the white water kayaks were the best features of our vacation there. We loved being on/in the water, but were disappointed that the water was (typically) brown. The 85 steps up to the main house got old. We spent a lot of time down below and a few of us even slept there. Without the boat house, there would be no reason to stay there (and it would be a 1-star).
It was a great area in which to vacation with the dunes and ocean close by.
The price is quite high for what turned out to be an average house.

Owner's Response: I can only ask guests to come and see--other than the two burnt out light bulbs (since replaced), the cupboard contents (what guests leave behind as a courtesy), and maybe a few frays in the beach towels, I don't believe these comments reflect our place at all, nor are they reflected in our other reviews. There is a fully empty dresser in the master; another in the guest house. We stock the bathroom cabinet with sunscreen, 3-1 ointment, etc. for guests to have if they've happened to have forgotten them. The water well was brand new, as Howard had been told: clean water but with an initial sulphury smell; we are adding an extra drinking water filter and spigot this weekend.

Peace and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six (teens and pre-teens) had an excellent stay at Heron Cove. First, lack of cell and Internet service was exactly what our family needed to unplug and enjoy our vacation in Oregon. It's a plus rather than a negative!
Second, close access to the Dunes was great! We enjoyed a day on ATVS then lunch at Don's Main Street Restaurant (great pie! ).
Third, the boathouse was where we wanted to be....kayaks, canoe, swimming, diving, fishing, so much to do in a very quiet and peaceful spot on the lake.
Great views, fun outdoor activities, comfortable place to rest and relax..... one of the best vacations we've had!

Michael was great to work with and very helpful.

Quiet and peaceful

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at this property during the last week of June 2014. The lake and surrounding area was so quiet and peaceful that we felt we had the lake to ourselves. It was sunny during the first half of the week and we had a blast hanging out in the boathouse which really is the gem of this property. We thought the water might be cold but it was very pleasant for swimming. It was great to have access to the kayaks and canoe in order to explore the lake, and the water trampoline was fun just to sun bathe on. The second half of the week it rained on and off (a fine Oregon mist at times) but we still enjoyed sitting down at the boathouse and playing games or reading.

The house was very clean when we arrived and the extra large refrigerator was a bonus since we had planned to stay put for a full week. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. He had recommended that we arrive before dark as the address was a little challenging to find - good suggestion! We had 3 generations with us so the separate guest room/bathroom next door was perfect for Grandma. The second bedroom in the house was a bit small for our two teenagers so one slept out on the futon in the living room. We really liked that this property was pet friendly. They have 2 separate gates that kept our small dog enclosed (and the neighbor's dog out) which was much appreciated. If you are looking for a beautiful and secluded location, then this is the property for you!

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Michael and Mia's place! We went the week July 22 - 26th 2013, and the weather was fantastic. We came from Chico CA where it was over 100 every day, so the 70's was a breath of fresh air!! We thought it would be too cold to swim, but NO WAY! The water was way warm and diving off the diving board was great. It felt much warmer than in the 70's that's for sure. Also the kayak's were a blast and so was the canoe. Our lab climbed into one of the kayaks (well on to me!) and went cruising with me. This place was great. SUPER SUPER quiet, which was nice. We caught a ZILLION perch off the dock, and also a couple of bass and a surprising Coho salmon. That one shocked us. We had fishing contests, which was fun. Also, the dunes are really close, so we went riding on quads one day. That was A LOT of fun...and you know, people in Oregon are REALLY REALLY nice. We talked about moving! :-)
Thanks so much Michael, and I tell you what, you were REALLY nice and easy to work with. You made this a great trip for us. You answered all questions, and made this very easy .Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will be back!

Chris, Terri, Emily, and Justin (and Sandy and Penny) :-)

Nature Lover's Paradise!

Nature Lover's Paradise!

Our stay at this lakehouse was exactly what I had hoped for when we planned our trip to the Oregon Coast! With the wonderful boathouse, I knew it would not matter if it rained our entire stay (which it did!) What could be better than the sound of raindrops on a tin roof, holding a hot cup of chai tea in one hand and a fishing pole in the other, while being in out of the rain but no compromise on the view?!?! This experience was fantastic! While down at the boathouse, it feels like you are right on the water! We saw a great number of herons, many many different species of ducks, deer, and my husband and teenage son caught 4 really nice trout and a perch! We will never forget Rufy, our dog, falling in the water and my husband having to rescue him! Although smart, he just isn't a swimmer apparently! From then on, we laughed at how he would walk down the walkway as far away from the water as he could possibly get! The house was wonderful as well, and we utilized the new guesthouse too! It was all equipped with everything we could possibly need, and was clean and cozy. We cooked meals, played games, and were mesmerized by the view out the upstairs windows! We filled the hummingbird feeder and thoroughly enjoyed watching our hummingbird friends visit frequently the rest of our stay! Michael, the owner, was wonderful and was so accomodating when part of our vacation plans had to be revised. The entire lakehouse has some very artistic touches from one end to the other!

We had an entire week to spend on the Oregon Coast and I could not wait to show my kids the Oregon Coast that I loved so dearly! I was ecstatic to find this lakehouse when planning our trip, as it was a perfect place for letting my kids experience one of the parts of Oregon I love so much - the fishing!!!! We stayed a few days on the Northern Coast, a few on the Southern Coast, but the lakehouse was everything I had hoped it would be for the middle of our trip!!! How wonderful that it is located so near the Dune area! We had planned to go sandboarding and rent ATV's to go experience the dunes, but the weather did not cooperate this time. None of us minded, as we had a fabulous time being together at the Lakehouse, catching fish, and making memories to last a lifetime. My two college-aged daughters and teenage son even got in some night fishing, listening to music. They loved it!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful spot with us, Michael! We hope to come back soon!

Many thanks

  • 5 of 5
Hi Michael and Mia,
Just arrived home and wanted to send our thanks for sharing your lakeside home with us. We all had a fantastic time with the weather perfect - we all found ourselves jumping in.
We lucked out with the crawdad festival in town and spent Saturday afternoon roaming around and sampling crawdads (hard to fill up on those little things) Mostly, we just enjoyed hanging out at the house, barbecuing, napping,reading, sunning, kayaking and canoeing. Sam is a big time fisherman - both fly and regular. No luck on that front but not for a lack of trying.
After a tough couple of weeks for me, it was just pure joy.
Thanks. You can see that Wrigley loved your place as well!
Would love to return some day!
Best,
Mimi
