This is where family traditions begin...

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic weekend we've had. Heron house was perfect for us. My family of four met up with my folks and the six of us had an amazing weekend in Yachats. Previous reviews claimed issues with Wi-Fi, but we had none. The listing says this cozy home sleeps six, but realistically we did the math and with every sleeping spot full it could accommodate twice that. We had an amazing first night, just hanging out together. Our second night included oysters (of course!) and wine...and a night of grown ups on the back deck just enjoying each other's company and staying up too late for our own good. We're getting older, you know. ;) We love Heron House, can't wait to book it for next year. The dogs had a great time, the kids had a great time, the family had (wait for it) a great time. OH - and laundry facilities on site are a Godsend! With two kiddos ages 9 and 12, who love the sand and surf, it was amazingly fantastic to be able to wash their clothes before putting them BACK into the suitcases to head home. The beds were ridiculously amazing, my folks had the Murphy bed and raved about it. My daughter loved the nook bed, where the princess sleeps (and the pillow to prove it). We even met some of the neighbors while we were there, and everyone was just so friendly and kind. This has been, officially, our first annual trip to Yachats and Heron House. See you next year. <3

Clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable, nicely furnished. Quiet, attractive neighborhood a couple blocks from the highway. It is on a slow-moving river, not the beach. The neighbor was fishing for salmon in the river.

No cell service. I wasn't expecting that. There was a landline. Good wi-fi, fast and easy to access. There was no coffee. I would have liked that. Lots of different teas to drink. Plenty of dishes and pans and such.

There are officially two bedrooms, but there are three rooms that can be used for sleeping, plus couches and a tiny sleeping nook. Only one room closes off with a door. The other two are loft rooms above the living room - one with a curtain and one open. If people are talking in the living room, the people in the loft rooms can't sleep.

I gave this home 3 stars as it is not 3 bedrooms as advertised.

Listing said "Steep yourself in the warm and peaceful surroundings of our spacious 3 bedroom, 3 bath home just steps for the beautiful Yachats River." Later in the description it mentions one bedroom is a loft, and by the pictures I could see that, but no mention of the other space being open.

When I think of bedrooms, I think of spaces with doors that can be closed to give privacy. This house has only one bedroom with an actual door. With 2 families sharing the space it wasn't ideal. We had three young children with us, and the openness didn't work for bedtime.

The walk into town was close and being along side the river was peaceful as well. Also, I'd like to mention that the playground, fire pit and pool are not in the immediate area. We spent little time there so no big loss, but would have loved to sit outside and use the smores makings I purchased while the little one's were asleep.

Might be best to update the description to reflect the accuracy of the home.

Owner's Response: Naomi, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I did see where there was a typo in the opening paragraph and I have corrected that. We do have each bedroom defined in the amenities section including information that the upstairs bedroom is a loft, but I can see where this may have caused confusion. I have also added text to let our guests know that the playground and fire pit area are near the tennis courts. Thanks again, Nikki

Exceptional, well equipped, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

For a person who usually feels there has to be an ocean view involved in a vacation rental, I was absolutely delighted with the location and charm of this house. The view out the back of the river and the forest was captivating. The surrounding yards and houses all had beautiful gardens and the neighborhood is aptly named "Quiet Waters".

Inside, the house was clean and very comfortable. The third bathroom and laundry facilities were added bonuses. I would love to stay here again some time.

Relaxing stay in a comfortable cabin

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four (mom, dad, 11 yr old son and 9 yr old daughter) enjoyed our time at the Heron House cabin. It is quaint and quiet. The decor is simple but welcoming. Some household elements could use updates: e.g. the windows seem to be aging. We had enough space and found the surrounding natural environment calming. The kids loved the small pool on the premises. We all enjoyed the easy walk to the beach and town. Overall a great stay.
