Overview

Coos Bay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + bunk area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 guests)

The Little Cabin on the River is licensed through the Coos County Public Health Department, State of Oregon, License #54468.

Hideout in a coastal forest. Built in the early 60's as a fishing retreat, it is a perfect getaway for two guests. Completely remodeled, this cozy little cabin is located right on the river and in the heart of old logging history. With the mountains and river, it provides a perfect excuse to hike, bike, fish and explore. Minutes from Coos Bay, enjoy the beaches, local seafood, and a barbecue all in the same day.

With a bright open kitchen and living area, it makes your stay comfortable and relaxing. Heated by a gas fireplace, it makes cold winter nights cozy and comfortable. The main bedroom boasts a comfortable queen bed, with down comforter, and in the winter warm cozy flannel sheets. There is a small bunk area off of the main bedroom with two built -in rustic beds.

With 80' of river frontage, watch river birds, otters, ospreys, salmon, chipmunks, quail, deer and the occasional elk, who venture down to enjoy the apple orchard. Build a fire in the fire pit on the river bank below the cabin's private deck and enjoy an evening under the stars. We even provide the wood.

During the summer months, when the river is at its lowest, enjoy a small island where blue heron, ducks, deer, otters, kingfishers, and other river wildlife come to explore. Right in front of the cabin, it makes morning coffee a whole lot more enjoyable.

Located on the East Fork of the Millicoma River, three miles from Golden and Silver Falls State Park in Coos County, and with the 92,000 acre Elliott State Forest and the 210,000 acre Weyerhaeuser Millicoma Tree Farm as neighbors, you'll enjoy the beautiful southern Oregon Coast Range at its best.

THE FISH ARE HERE! Chinook salmon spawn in front of the cabin from November to January and steelhead fishing starts mid-December and runs through March. Trout season runs from May 26th through October 31st. In the fall experience the beautiful colors of nature and in the winter, perhaps a snowfall or two.

Spring brings lot's of early wildflowers like the Chocolate Lily, the white and pink Trillium, and the beautiful native rhododendrons in colors from white to deep purple. During the months of July through late September, fill your basket with fresh blackberries or spend time picking apples in our orchard. In October, visit the Mahaffey Ranch in the town of Allegany, and pick out that perfect pumpkin.

Open all year are the wonderful hiking trails at Golden and Silver Falls State Park. Hike through an old growth forest of Douglas Fir, Big Leaf Maple and Oregon Myrtlewood, while enjoying the scenic, beautiful and historic Glenn Creek. At a height of 240' Golden Falls is quite possibly the most impressive waterfall in the Coast Range of Oregon. Both falls are located within a rustic state park, adorned by a trail system and a nice picnic area at the trailhead. Originally the Allegany to Scottsburg Pack Trail, Silver Falls hiking path was a stage coach route from 1909 to 1912.

Featuring a fully equipped kitchen, and plenty of towels, pack your toothbrush, and those books you've wanted to read, and stay awhile. Whatever you choose, we know you'll enjoy your stay.

(We have provided several books on our area's local history, covering logging, legends and mysteries, along with vintage photos covering the original town of Allegany and Golden & Silver Falls. Hike above Golden Falls and explore the old homestead, making for an exciting day trip.)

SPEND A DAY IN THE WOODS WITH A FORESTER: Explore Coos County's first guided tour through a working forest with a professional forester. Bring your kids and your questions. FREE July through September on Wednesdays from 1:00 - 4:30 p.m. Free transportation provided departing from the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce. RSVP 541-269-0215 or toll free 1-800-824-8486.

About Tom & Dee Jackson

I enjoy fishing, gardening, and hiking. I have been fishing here since I was eight years old. I just enjoy the awesome seclusion of this area. This picture, taken in front of the cabin, shows myself with a fresh caught steelhead. Caught this year, right alongside the cabin, it weighed out at 14 lbs and 32''. Another great place to fish for steelhead, is at Nesika Park, located just three minutes from the cabin!

Tom & Dee Jackson purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Tom & Dee Jackson chose Coos Bay

I grew up alongside this little cabin. When it came up for sale in 2010, I couldn't think of anything better than to open it to family, friends, and travelers. My family has been a part of this wonderful valley since the 50's. Never crowded, it is a great place to kick back and relax. The weather is milder here and we don't get that cold wind or fog off the ocean. This is a rural area, but also a safe and fun place to bring your family. Mine grew up here.

What makes this cabin unique

I really enjoy all of the seasons here. I look forward to the summer barbecues, swimming, and just being outside. Fall is wonderful with all the trees changing colors and the salmon traveling up the river to spawn. One of the best places to see this is right in front of this little cabin. Winter brings wild mushroom picking and the rain, which raises the river and makes Golden and Silver Falls so spectacular. Fishing is one of my most favorite hobbies, so I live where I can do that. In Spring everything is green, the birds start to nest, and the mountain mist is beautiful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your cabin is very nice. You have done a great job on the remodel! The kitchen is well stocked with spices, etc. and there are plenty of dishes, utensils and tools. The bed was very comfortable. My husband and I enjoyed the books on the local history, very interesting! Enjoyed our stay. Paula & Mack, Roseburg, OR

We had a great family weekend!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four had been looking for a place to stay in the Coos Bay area and were excited to find the Little Cabin on the River. The kids (ages 8 and 12) loved the bunks, the big bed was comfy, the coffee table was a good conversation piece and we loved the full kitchen, which meant we could shop in town and prepare our own food - although we did pick up a Papa Murphy's pizza in town to cook one night.
We had a great time exploring the area (the Sand Dunes, Shore Acres and Silver/Golden Falls), but were happy to hunker down in the cabin in the evenings. We especially appreciated the laundry machines after a muddy hike.
The only drawbacks were that is was November, so we didn't swim, our kids couldn't sleep past 6:30 am (too excited) and our car battery died one night. Thankfully Tom was home and had jumper cables.

Thanks again for a great weekend!

Restful Stay

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was exactly as described with all the items needed to have a wonderful stay. We found the owners to be friendly and helpful in many ways. Took lots of long walks and enjoyed every minute we were there. Sad to leave such a beautiful place.

Owner's Response: Guest Journal Entry Oct 17-31; It turned out to be more wonderful than expected. We took long walks even in the rain. Saw deer, llamas, quail and even a red tail hawk. The most enjoyable was seeing the salmon going upriver. Also the gas fireplace made the cabin warm and cozy. But the best part was meeting Tom and Dee. They are gracious hosts and we will be back next year. R & N, Bakersfield, CA

It is always wonderful to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay. This note, especially mentioned the wonderful sights that accompany our guests' stay when they visit us and our little valley. Thank you both for a terrific review!

So peaceful and rejuvenating

  • 5 of 5
I have worked 2 full time jobs as a PICU RN and part of my reward when one of the jobs was finished was a relaxing, quiet and rejuvenating getaway and this little cabin was "just what the doctor ordered"!!! I brought my two miniature schnauzers and they loved it too!!! The best part was pulling in Saturday night, sleeping late and waking up to watch the Chargers play football. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!!!! :0) Tom and Dee were so helpful. Dee called the week before I left and offered me an extra day because someone had canceled I couldn't have been more excited. I loved the little yard where my puppies could run around. Hiking up to Silver and Gold Falls was amazing and beautiful. I also loved having the beach just an hour away and being able to visit the several of the light houses! I will definitely be making the Little Cabin on the River a regular getaway. It was so peaceful to get off the grid for a while and just enjoy the peace and quiet that exudes from the little cabin. I have told everyone on my unit about the cabin and have had several people talk about making reservations, who knows it could become the healthcare workers hide away!!!! Thank you so so so so much for an awesome vacation!!

Peaceful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I picked our location on the OR coast based on this cabin and we were not disappointed! It was very quiet (we loved not having cell service, but knowing the land line was there if need be)! We made breakfast every morning in the well stocked kitchen and sat out by the river and enjoyed the view. We were able to take day trips to hike, shop and explore the beach. The hosts were easy to work with and very kind. The cabin was cute, clean and the bed was very comfy. We had a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. Our goal has always been to make sure the cabin is clean and ready for our guests. Someplace where "I" would like to bring my family and spend time. We appreciate you mentioning that it was because of our cabin that you chose to visit the Oregon coast. There couldn't be a better review to receive than that! Thank you so very much and please visit us again!

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5
I brought my girlfriend to stay in the Little Cabin on the River for her birthday present. We stayed for 3 nights. The cabin is incredible. This was the most relaxing vacation I have ever had. More than anything, I wanted my girlfriend to know, without a doubt, how important she is. There is no doubt in my mind, she knows how I feel about her. We drove the coast into California and looked at the Redwoods. We rented ATV's and explored the beach and the dunes. We won money at the casino. We had an amazing, relaxing stay in the cabin. Thank you!!! I sincerely hope we can come back sometime soon.

A Relaxing and Carefree Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I have to add to the rave reviews of this wonderful little cabin. It was the perfect getaway for my husband and I with our dog - our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! Everything is as described and we were thoroughly impressed with how well-stocked it was including kitchen essentials, grilling supplies, and wood for the fire pit. The dog cookies and bowl was also very much appreciated. They really thought of everything! The cabin itself is so lovely and well-maintained, by far the nicest we've experienced in our several VRBO rentals. The owners really pay attention to detail and you will love exploring all of the historical photos and books they provide. But my favorite part was watching the river go by - enjoy breakfast on the deck or warm yourself by the fire and your cares will just drift away.
