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 to four 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, and in the winter warm cozy flannel sheets and down comforter. There is a small bunk area off of the main bedroom with two built-in rustic bunk 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. Enjoy their corn maze and cannon, and the best apple cider in the state.

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

Cute Cabin, Peaceful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Little Cabin on the River is a wonderful getaway. The Jacksons have really thought of every little detail to make this a great place to stay. I was impressed by how thorough the cabin was furnished--cooking tools, a welcome binder, desk full of brochures, and a firewood stockade. Even though the cabin is close to the main house, there was plenty of privacy and it felt like its own little entity. It's great having the river a hop away, and very cool to be near the Golden & Silver Falls State Park. Definitely want to revisit this place during all the seasons!

We stayed 8'days..I can go on about this place forever on how perfect it was, but it looks like the other revirws covered just about everything!! We lived here over 20 or so yrs ago and have been or lived just about everywhere in the Us, and here is where we longed to come back too!! The waterfalls, river, fishing, hiking, people are Amazing!! If your "thinking about it" you should stop thinking and just do it, you won't regret it, its piecefull and private and the bed is so COMFORTABLE!! We came from Nipomo California and brought my youngest son, and now he has dreams to move there someday. Thanks Tom & Dee for letting us stay at your cute little cabin on the river, y'all were so sweet and very helpful!! We'll be back next yr!! Happy trails :)

This Was Great!

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes it's just plain nice to read about a place where other travelers have gone and who with their comments, help you not worry about what you will find. The Little cabin is such a place. I read the reviews and felt that this was a place to visit.

I was not disappointed. If you are looking for a place to relax, to refresh and to discover, the little cabin is the place. The falls, just up the road, aren't just to hike and explore, they bring you back to childhood and when life was simple and fun.

Take a Pepsi, coca cola or just a bottle of spring water and sit back at the top of Golden Falls and take in nature. Silver Falls is not too bad either.

The little cabin leaves you to definitely reflect, that this was one great choice! I am glad I took the advice of 38 other guests. They all were definitely right on.

The cabin is just the icing on the cake. We appreciate your review and wish you a wonderful summer. Please come again!

the perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My (now) fiance and I could not have better things to say about the Little Cabin on the river. It was the perfect vacation for us. We drove up the coast from California, taking our time to enjoy the beautiful roads of Oregon. We got to the cabin after driving for a couple days, and were so pleasantly surprised. Dee and Tom have literally thought of everything to make this the perfect getaway. They even have a phone with a phone card that their guests can use to make long distance calls. This came in particularly useful for us, because my (at the time) boyfriend proposed to me in the cabin! This place will always hold a special place in our hearts, as I'm sure it does for every person who stays there. Driving around the area, the hikes to the waterfalls, cooking in the fully stocked kitchen while watching the river go by... it was all perfect! We have been recommending this place to all of our friends and family, and we look forward to going back for anniversaries in the future.

Owner's Response: Congratulations! It was such a pleasure having you as guests. I must admit, this is the "first" proposal I know of, but we have had lots of honeymooners and anniversaries at the cabin. Perhaps we will have you again for one or the other or maybe both! We wish you a future full of love and happiness. Thank you for sharing your news.

we were very pleasantly surprised at how nice the cabin on the river was. You take your chances renting something based on pictures off of the Internet but this one was even better than the pictures depicted!

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!
