About the property

Siletz Riverhouse with a view of the river from every window and the deck.

Located only 12 miles SE of Lincoln City, Oregon, the Siletz Riverhouse is your centrally located fishing or relaxation haven. The house is located on the Siletz River. Climb 10 steps up one story to the wonderful glass-railed deck enclosure overlooking the river or continue inside from this elevated deck and watch the river flow by through the large picture windows. We own the private dock directly below for your swimming, kayaking, boating, fishing, or wine-in-hand 'watch the river flow by' convenience.

This quaint one bedroom river house, which surprisingly sleeps 6, has all the amenities you need. Bring your fishing pole, kayak, inner tubes, or a good book for a peaceful weekend to getaway from it all and enjoy the serenity. Sit on our private dock with your favorite beverage while someone on the deck grills you a steak or that salmon you just caught or bought! Bring your own wood for a crackling fire in the riverside firepit, the backyard fire ring, or for the riverstone backed windowed wood stove!

There is a full service remodeled kitchen complete with stove, convection oven, microwave, dishwasher, pots and pans, coffee pot, blender, toaster, waffle iron, griddle, chopper, popcorn popper, even a fondue pot and pizza stone and several skillets in the bottom drawer of the oven! We also have plasticware for your leftovers, mixing bowls and measuring cups/spoons, cutting board, brownie pans, Pyrex bakeware, cookie sheets, abundant glassware, and two types of cork screws. A propane BBQ grill is conveniently located on the deck.

Our LCD-HD flat screen TV has a family oriented Blu-ray and DVD 100+ movie library and a stereo to play your CDs for your entertainment pleasure. The dining table seats six with cushions for the chairs. There is a separate bedroom with a queen size bed, heated and a large closet! Need a little more sleeping room? The custom made twin sized bunk beds with privacy curtains are roomy, located in the hallway outside of the bedroom. The futon in the living area is a double sized sleeper. The remodeled bathroom has a full size tub/shower, shampoo and conditioner, hair dryer and candles for ambiance. Our hallway shelves are stocked with an extra TV/DVD player for the kids, emergency flash lights, cards, board games and puzzles to share.

About Rod Boettcher

Hello! We are The Boettchers (Rod and Pam) and we acquired the Siletz Riverhouse in August 2009. One of the things we love to do is to take out our canoe or kayaks and paddle the river right in front of our house! We are excited to continue the tradition of sharing this quaint cabin on the banks of the Siletz River with others. Welcome!

Rod Boettcher purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Rod Boettcher chose Lincoln City

What could be better? The Pacific Ocean and Siletz Bay within a 12 minute drive from the cabin. Mo's Restaurant and their famous Clam Chowder. Another 5 minutes more... Shopping! Can you say the Lincoln City Outlet Mall or the funky beachside tourist shops! Then back to the cabin. The quiet, serene river floating by, the occasional drift boat or kayak, and river otters too!

What makes this cabin unique

We love the opportunities for kayaking, canoeing, fishing, boating, and tranquility of sitting on the deck above the river or dangled our feet in the water sitting on the dock. This is a place where you can hear the silence. We fell in love with this Riverhouse!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A fabulous relaxing time we had in your most cozy, comfortable, and perfectly appoint home. Thank you for sharing. Best of all we caught a 19 lb., 33” Chinook using your canoe!!! Perfect birthday present for my husband and me. We will be back!

A lot of fun!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the Siletz river cabin. The square footage was small, but the layout was very efficient. We plan on doing another trip there in the future.

3rd visit

  • 5 of 5

As with the past two visits to the Riverhouse, had no problems and truly enjoyed our brief time there. Great owners and though a little off the beaten track, so close to everything. Being of fthe beaten track for a few days is a great reminder that we live in the fast lane...way too much! Will be back for a 4th visit!

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you need and the owners have thought of all the key items. No cell service or internet was a dream. It was nice to be able to forward your phone to the land line for emergencies. Thanks

Wonderful, Quiet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from it all, this is the place to go. No cell service or internet to distract you. We watched movies, played board games, and just enjoyed the company of each other. Beautiful surroundings with the river and the dock to sit on. We loved it!

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Damage Deposit $60

This is our ‘home away from home’ and we are happy to share it. To keep our rates affordable, we have two unique requests: (1) that guests bring their own linens (bedding and towels) and (2) clean the cabin upon departure. You are the cleaning service! Guests cleaning is clearly different from most rentals because we consider it to be your house during this time on the Siletz River. This keeps our prices lower for a full house rental and no cleaning fee is charged as is the case for most house rentals. For these reasons, we rely on the honor system and ask our guests to make sure the cabin is in 'tip-top' shape for the next guests. The Boy Scouts have a rule: "Always leave the campground cleaner than you found it." We request that our guests treat our home in the same way and we will provide checklists and details for cleaning. :) If the Riverhouse is well cleaned upon your departure, then the refundable deposit will be promptly returned.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
