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

Better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a place that was off the beaten path with lots of outdoor adventures around. We found the perfect location here and have absolutely loved our stay. When we first arrived, we could not believe how cozy and well-stocked and well-maintained this cabin is! There is not a single thing that was not included or available to us! You have gone above and beyond to make this place feel like home. We only had two days booked, but wish we had stayed longer. We even spent one of our days here at the cabin and by the river, instead of going out to explore because we loved it so much. Thank you for all of your local travel advice and all of your hospitality! You truly thought of everything! We will definitely be back and will recommend all of our friends and family who may be in the area to stay here!

Wonderful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

From my initial phone call to Dee to book the Little Cabin and right through the prompt return of our security deposit, every facet of our stay was wonderful. While en route to Tom and Dee's, I happened to mention that our lab mix Cocoa had developed a sore on the side of her muzzle. Dee generously offered to take us to her long time vet and even offered some antibacterial cream for her. Luckily, Cocoa got better but what a kind gesture.The Little Cabin was selected by my wife after seeing the VRBO pictures but the reality was even better. Roomy and comfortable, well stocked with nearly everything you could need, it was truly the highlight of our vacation. Of our six night stay, we grilled three nights and brought home chinese another. Relaxing on the large deck with a glass of wine, fresh salmon on the charcoal grill, watching the lazy river pass by - does it get any better. The hikes to nearby Golden and Silver Falls were beautiful and very dog friendly. The half hour trip to Coos Bay was a pretty drive - definitely check out the Charleston area. The balance of hospitality was perfect- help and conversation if you request it and complete privacy if you want it. The Cabin is well stocked with interesting pictures and books on the local area - great for a rainy day (we were blessed with sunshine 5 days out of 6) or just lounging on the deck. We had had the pleasure of meeting Tom, Dee and their granddaughter our last night and getting a tour of of their home which adjoins the Cabin at a discreet distance. All in all, our hosts and their Little Cabin made for a very enjoyable stay.

A beautiful river cabin

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful gem of a cabin! Cozy, comfortable and clean. Denise was a great host. Though a little tricky to find, this place is well worth the effort. We really enjoyed quiet evenings looking at the river and just the woods and the quiet. Also, check out the Golden and Silver Falls right up the road. Definitely will return and recommend to friends!

Cozy Cabin by Stunning Waterfalls

  • 5 of 5

We have rented over 20 vacation homes all over Oregon and I have to say that the owners of this cabin have clearly thought through everything that would make a guest's stay enjoyable. The cabin was ready for us with everything we could possibly need, which was so refreshing in this day and age where many owners simply can't leave goods available for renters for fear that items will "walk away". It made us that much more respectful of their property honestly, because we were setup in the same way extended family would be. The fire pit out back was awesome on starry nights by the river. The waterfalls were right up the road, less than five minutes drive to trail head. Perfect for our family of 4 + dog (note: we definitely maxed out the interior space, but it was cozy in a good way). I believe we will likely return sooner than we had previously thought!

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!
