Camp Yachats Vacation Cottage... in a garden setting with forest and ocean!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Maximum 4 persons))

When you check in at Camp Yachats Vacation Cottage, you will be greeted by fresh flowers, the world's largest ocean, and the Siuslaw National Forest. And our rates are simple... TAXES ARE INCLUDED, NO DEPOSIT, NO ADDITIONAL CLEANING FEE! We are pet-friendly... up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome, and will be charged $25 each... per stay, not per night! And like a hotel, we add NO extra fees for cleaning or otherwise.

This one of a kind cottage, privately owned and managed by the on-site owners, is situated on two acres and abuts the National Forest. Flower beds, rhododendrons, and flowering trees provide seasonal color throughout.

We are located about 6.5 miles south of the village, on the inland side of the gorgeous stretch of shoreline between Cape Perpetua and Heceta Head.

The two front rooms and the porch offer ocean views through the trees. The cottage features 2 bedrooms, a small well-equipped kitchen, a living room, a small dining room, and a small bright bathroom.

You can relax on the porch, listen to the ocean’s waves, and breathe in the cool clean air while keeping an eye out for the eagles and hummingbirds in residence.

Walk to the beach down our private mossy path edged by ferns, salal, huckleberry, and Sitka spruce. There you’ll find wide sandy beaches and rocky tide pools, only 800 feet from your front door, just across the Scenic Pacific Coast Byway. Stroll along the beaches, typically empty except for agates, driftwood, and shore birds.

Just behind the cottage a trail leads to the banks of the year round Mill Creek (about 150 feet from your back door), with tall trees, ferns, and wildflowers all around. Or you might unwind at the table under an apple tree in the backyard garden.

This charming cottage is a perfect spot for your base for exploring the magic of the Oregon Coast. We provide a small library of specially selected books on a variety of local topics, including history of the area, geology and flora and fauna. The cottage is also equipped with board games and jigsaw puzzles for your enjoyment.

Whimsy abounds, with an Elvis shrine, a sock monkey haven, local folk art, a sand collection, vintage Oregon plates, a little red-and-white retro red kitchen, and lots more surprises!

Your hosts live on site next door, and would be delighted to help in any way possible to make your stay a memorable one. If you desire an amenity or service not listed, please ask anyway. In many cases you can be accommodated.

About A Victoria Lambert

We are your hosts, Victoria Lambert and Paul Niblock. Paul previously lived on five continents, then both of us traveled the lower 48 states looking for our perfect spot. We think we have it! We enjoy the ocean 800' from our door, the cleanest freshest air you can imagine, dark rich earth for gardening, lush green forest around us, a creek in the back yard, mountains behind us, lots of solitude, and a year-round temperate climate... we don't need air-conditioning and we don't shovel snow. Life is good!

A Victoria Lambert purchased this cottage in 2001

What makes this cottage unique

Outside: the beach, the mighty Pacific, the forest, the creek, the flowers and apple trees... and eagles, elk, bears, coyotes, sea lions, seals, otters, eagles and hummingbirds to share it with.

And inside: all the practical stuff you need to make your visit go smoothly... plus fun furnishings and loads of whimsy, Elvis, sock monkeys, and a growing sand collection from all over the globe!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Totally Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Camp Yachats and immediately felt at home, kind of like going to visit your grandma. We were treated to natural handmade soaps and lotion made by our hostess. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils (but who cooks on vacation)? The cottage was spotless, linens plentiful, and the beds were very comfortable after long days of trekking the beaches and forests. The grounds surrounding the cottage were amazing. We had our own little hobbit trail to the mountain spring at the back of the property and the yard was one large whimsical garden. The local restaurants served delicious meals and the shops were welcoming and friendly. The beach was amazing, full of sealife and rock formations. We spent hours walking on the beaches and soaking up the wonderful energy of Yachats. We will be staying at Camp Yachats again!

The perfect home base for our small family to enjoy the coast!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Camp Yachats! Paul and Victoria were the perfect hosts. They even gave us a call when there was Eagle perched above the cabin. This place had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We would love to stay there again. Thank you!

Beautiful home and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. It was adorable and a nice size for our small family. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the hosts were so friendly. The location is nice as it is right between Yachats and also very close to the Sea Lion Caves and Heceta Head lighthouse. We will definitely go to this place again!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect home base for our time on the Oregon coast! Our hosts said that they moved there looking for Nirvana and it looks like they found it. Ocean in front and forest behind with paths down to the creek make it perfect for going for a walk. The cottage is very clean and well cared for. The kitchen is tiny but well stocked with cookware. The interior decoration is eclectic and fun. Lots of towels and extra bedding if you need it. The grounds are a wonderful mix of garden and forest. But best of all, Paul and Victoria are lovely hosts and make you feel welcome and do whatever they can to make your visit enjoyable and comfortable. We can't wait to go back!

Charming cottage with a nostalgic feel!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Camp Yachats was very nice. The location was perfect for our vacation plan. It was in between Florence and Newport where we spent a day riding the ATVs at the sand dune (Florence) and another day at the Oregon Coast Aquarium (Newport). The visit to Cape Perpetua was just minutes away. Walking distance to the beach where my kids visited everyday. Very well-stocked kitchen, we enjoyed our tea after a day of fun activity. Last but not the least, Paul and Victoria are wonderful host!
