About the property

This mystical 25 acre Siletz River Ranch is the best of what the Oregon coast has to offer. The property is located on one mile of riverfront and across from the historical Medicine Rock. The property is only 6½ miles from the ocean and just 10 minutes from the Salishan Golf Course & Spa, Depoe Bay or Lincoln City.

Enjoy the peace, tranquility, and beauty of gorgeous meadows from 2000 feet of deck space. Summer climate averages in the 70's while the close proximity to the beach provides a refreshing cool breeze.

Read a book in the beautiful weather out on the deck, soak in the Jacuzzi, listen to your favorite CD, or hike the lush hilly forests.

Have a thirst for adventure? Kayak in the refreshingly serene river, ride your ATV or horse in the surrounding forestry, go fishing, clamming, crabbing, or beach combing.

World class Steelhead fishing in the Spring and Salmon fishing in the Fall.

Weddings - Family Gatherings - Special Events: Decks accommodate 100+ Guests with view of the river, surrounding hills, and Medicine Rock.

Medicine Rock: The Siletz Tribe believe that Medicine Rock brings health and good fortune. It is the historical society's Historical Marker #9 for Lincoln City.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This property was amazingly peaceful. My finance and I had never slept so well and the air was filled with oxygen. We woke up totally energized. I also get to see stars that I have never noticed before in Calif.

We want to thank you for having the place so well stocked with every day to day convenience. We have bottle water, paper towel and more toilet paper rolls than two of us ever needed and the wine was not bad either.

We are well rested and ready to go back to work and life again. See you next time.

Pictures do not match current conditions - dog hair in bed

  • 1 of 5

I don't typically write reviews, negative or positive, but feel it wouldn't be fair to people looking at this property to not share our experience.

Strike One: Upon arrival, we went upstairs to open windows and get some air flowing through the house as it was a hot day. The master bedroom smelled of mold, one window is in obvious need of replacement and the pull down shades didn't work properly and were torn.

Strike Two: We all unloaded our coolers into the fridge and four hours later we realized it wasn't cold. The freezer worked, but the ice maker was not making ice. We called the maintenance man and he had no resolution. I asked if he could bring us ice and he did. So we all unloaded our food from the fridge and back into the coolers.

Strike Three: It says it sleeps 14, which it does not. In beds, it has places for 8, plus a sofa sleeper downstairs for a total of 10. There is a futon (full of stains) in one room, now we're at 11. She said there was an air mattress that we could use, but there wasn't. She counts the other couches as other places to sleep, just so everyone is aware. There is one full size couch in the master bedroom and two full size couches downstairs. That's how she comes up with 14. I have never heard of home advertising "sleeps 14" when they weren't all beds/sleeper sofas.

Strike Four: This home really doesn't have what I would call river access. There is a road that can take you down to the river, but it has a steep, slippery, muddy decline into the river, which adjusts with the tide. Around 11:00am, we walked down to all get in the river and we had to wade through knee deep mud to reach the water. Some slipped and fell and received cuts from the rocks. The dock in the photos and in the list of amenities isn't located on this property, it is a dock from the park, which you have to drive to get to.

Strike 5: On our second night, the hot tub quit working. It just completely shut off, as if there was no power going to it. I called the maintenance man, and again, there was no resolution. He doesn't handle the hot tub, that is handled by someone else.

Strike 6: After going to the muddy river, we all needed to rinse off and take showers and there was no running water! Yup, none. And guess what. The maintenance man couldn't help us. We ended up leaving, cutting our trip short. It sucked!

There is more to tell, but it says I'm almost out of characters.

Wonderful place to stay, quiet and serene

  • 3 of 5

It was wonderful to spend a few days with family, although the property had some issues that need to be attended to. We needed to forage for fire wood as none was available, the ice maker in the fridge didn't work, and the pictures didn't quite match the condition of the property as it is currently. It needs some help, just being honest.

The boat landing is available to use, but not on the property, that was a little misleading in the add. It's a wonderful place to stay because of the scenery and location but the amenities could use some work.

Beautiful however dissapointing

  • 2 of 5

The view is great and the deck and hot tub are nice, however the hot tub did not work well.

We rented this home in hopes of a wonderful first vacation with our new grandson and a great fishing trip with my son.

When we got to the home (in february) we realized that the main heat source did not work so we had to crank up the oven and leave the oven door open to warm the house up.

The main reason we chose this home was because it stated that there was a dock and kayaks to use which we were very excited about. We soon realized that there were neither of these things available. The manager stated that "the dock must have floated down the river" and the kayaks were locked up in the shop.

The home was not very clean; we found several dirty dishes in the cabinets and the floors were not mopped or vacuumed. The owner did offer to refund our cleaning deposit.

The master bedroom has a jacuzzi tub with a great view that was very nice and relaxing, and a great way to warm up.....

I would guess that in warmer months this home would be a better option because the deck is really cool.

I personally would not rent this home again and I would warn that you should not get your hopes up on this one.

Beautiful location. Very private

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. We came with 4 adults and 8 children at the end of December. The house is in a quiet, private location. Beautiful view of the river. The hot tub wasn't working right but April got a repair man out as soon as she could. The house was in ok condition. Could use a little TLC. Overall it was a nice vacation. Thanks. :)

Awesome river retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay here. Planned on spending a couple days, but extended for a week. This property has it all and we were made to feel very welcome by our wonderful hosts. We enjoyed getting to know David, soaking up the sun, swimming and canoeing on the river, grilling fresh seafood and relaxing in the jacuzzi. The house is clean and comfortable. The deck is amazing. We had everything we needed and it was the perfect place to relax with our dogs. Would also be great for a family or larger group. Thank you so much, David and Ruby.
