Roads End House Rental Photos and Description

Multi-generation friendly. Make memories to last forever.

Barefoot, you step out onto the splinter-free deck. A brilliant orange sun crests the horizon, sending the last of its fiery shimmer over the smooth Pacific. In one hand you hold a glass of Oregon wine and in the other, a tiny hand – a child or grandchild. The whole family is here, gathered on this perfect evening for a sunset meal. At the other end of the deck, the bubbling hot tub is prepped for after-dinner drinks and a night of family conversation under the stars.

Welcome to Lincoln City, a quiet escape known for fresh clams and crabs, sparkling agate, and exquisite, hand-blown glass floats.

Welcome to a family retreat where every detail encourages you to sit back, relax and enjoy time with your loved ones.

Welcome to a cozy, comfortable getaway where expansive decking, streaming sunlight, and picture windows invite the crashing surf into every room.

Welcome to the Shearwaterhouse, a Pacific oceanview home just a block to the scenic Oregon coastline.

Each of our three bedrooms feature its own theme: will you don an eye patch in the Captain's Quarters, grow gills for the Mermaid Lounge, or explore the ocean's depths Under the Sea? Our master suite (Captain's Quarters) is perfect for the ambulatory-compromised, as it's located on the main floor and has a walk-in shower. (Note there is one step to enter the home and main floor.) And for our youngest visitors, not only does the Under the Sea bedroom feature fun décor, but the king bed and futon configuration is perfect for parents who want to keep children close at night.

Our home is perfect for:

• Multi-Generational Travel: With 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, child-friendly features, and accessibility for the mobility impaired, the Shearwaterhouse perfectly accommodates three generations of travelers.

• Young Families: At the Shearwaterhouse, babies and toddlers are safe and secure. We have a sturdy baby gate, baby-safe decking, and plans to babyproof further. Even better, the littlest members of your family will love our climbing cube, pack n' play, and other accessories. And parents appreciate our Trex

decking (no splinters!) and kid accessories, like a booster seat and bedroom monitor.

• Family Reunions: Our home is the perfect mix of casual fun and light, open space – a warm and inviting home perfect for family reunions. And if you need extra space, our studio cottage (rents separately) next door can accommodate an additional couple.

• Mobility-Impaired Travelers: The main floor of Shearwaterhouse is accessible, with just one step to the outside, and our master bedroom and bathroom (with walk-in shower) is well suited to mobility-impaired travelers.

* GLBT Friendly

Please note that the Shearwaterhouse is not suited to bachelor or bachelorette parties, loud events, big celebrations, or Spring Breakers. We appreciate your understanding.

What You'll Love:

• Ocean Views: Our home features huge, panoramic ocean views (complete with breaching whales, kite surfers and seals!) from every room. Never for a moment will you forget you're on the coast!

• Spacious Decking: Speaking of those views, there's no better place to drink in the Pacific than from our decking – so expansive, you can see them from space!

• The HOT Tub: When we say hot, we mean hot. Our large, bubbling hot tub (perched on our upper deck!) is always the perfect regulation temperature of 102 – never lukewarm.

• Themed Bedrooms: Ahoy, matey! Choose from our cozy Captain's Quarters, the ethereal Mermaid Lounge, or the out-of-this-world Under the Sea bedroom.

• Make Yourself at Home: The Shearwaterhouse feels like your best friend's home: comfortable and well loved, without being stuffy. Don't worry, you can put your feet up.

Nearby Activities & Attractions:

The Oregon coast is always scenic and always spectacular. We're happy to recommend area attractions and activities for your stay. Here are a few of our favorites:

• Fish for your dinner: Bottom fishing, rock fishing, mussel harvesting, crabbing and clamming are a popular – and tasty! – pastime.

• Hunt for agate: If you're in the market for a beautiful and memorable souvenir, Lincoln city is surrounded by rock-hounding beaches.

• Go antiquing: Antique shops and woodcarvers' galleries dot the regions.

• Enjoy the outdoors: Lincoln City and central Oregon beg to be explored: go hiking, biking, golfing, paddle boating, kayaking and bird watching to see and experience the best of our scenic coast!

• Explore our festivals: There's always an event on the horizon, like Finders Keepers (Lincoln City's glass float festival), the Kite Festival, and others.

• So much more: Take an Oregon wine-tasting tour, learn to blow glass, horseback ride at sunset, visit our farmers markets… the possibilities abound!

Amenities

Our home features a full range of amenities, among them:

• Baby and toddler accessories, including a sturdy baby gate installed, and another to put where you need it, a deck that has no steps coming off it, a pack 'n play, a climbing cube on the lower deck, a highchair, a booster seat and a baby monitor

• Full kitchen with all the amenities of home

• High-speed broadband Internet

• Cable TVs with DVD players

• Gas fireplace for the family to gather around

• Expansive, circular double decks that draw you outside and expand your family living/dining space

Come, experience Shearwaterhouse and beautiful Lincoln City. We can't wait to welcome you and your family!

About Debi Hertert

High School sweethearts, married since 1971. Because of Debi's time as a travel agent and love of travel, she talked Rob into buying her a beach home in Seal Rock. When they retired from the VA Hospital, they started renting it as a vacation rental. It did so well, that (Debi) wanted another one, and searched for the perfect home for a year until finding the Shearwaterhouse.

Debi Hertert purchased this house in 2009

Why Debi Hertert chose Lincoln City

Everything is in the right place! There is a magnificent view of the ocean; amazing deck; it's only a block away from the beach; it has a lovely fireplace and a large hot tub. The upper level - the living level works even for those who have mobility issues. Just one step into the house, and there is access to everything. Perfectly safe for toddler, too!

What makes this house unique

Why, these amazing circular trex decks, of course! Rob loves to think that you could see them from a satellite zooming past overhead!

This is a quiet, safe neighborhood, close beach access. We love that the tide pools are not far away and we can see waaaay far out to sea, spotting whales, crab boats and barges.

The house is good for ambulatory-impaired because you can do all your living on the main floor. You don't HAVE to go down the stairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! This was our first family vacation as a family of four!



The deck, the view, the hot tub, everything is perfect here. We wish we could have stayed longer. Our almost 2 yr old and 8 mo old LOVED the beach and playing in the sand.

Terrific beach rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation at Shearwater with three couples and a two year old. The house was perfect for us and the view is spectacular. Each bedroom has a fun theme, there is a nice BBQ and a hot tub on the deck. There are also many extras including beer mugs in the freezer, toys for toddlers, games, a small slide and sand box on the deck, chocks for the car tires, and a music docking station. Everything was well organized and very clean.

The owners were great to work with. They quickly responded to questions, booking was very easy, and they honored our privacy by asking permission for the cleaner to access a storage area while we were staying there.

The area above the house is wooded which brought additional wildlife to the area. We enjoyed watching deer and hummingbirds as well as whales swim by, a wonderful combination!

We have stayed in other homes in the area that have basement bedrooms that smell moldy. The downstairs bedroom in this home did NOT have that issue.

We highly recommend this home to others.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

It was a wonderful place to stay and looked just like the pictures used to advertise it.. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. I felt right at home. The detailing in the house matched the feel of the area; nautical and beach like. The viewing room was a fantastic way to watch the ocean and marine life. There was access to wireless, and current technologies to keep connected with the rest of the world, but also the solitude we were looking for in our vacation. The homeowners and other parties involved were easy to communicate with and happy to do so. I would love to return to this property in the future.

Owner's Response: We spend a great deal of time and energy in having those things available to our guests that you would have in your own home. It's so frustrating to not have all the equipment one needs to feed a family. We are also lucky to have an amazing housekeeper to maintain a high standard of cleanliness. We are so glad you were comfortable and would love to hear from you again!

Comfortable, kid-friendly home

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from the Shearwater and already miss the sound of the crashing waves. We felt very comfortable leaving the windows and master sliding door open during the night and really enjoyed the fresh air and sound of the ocean. The house is also perfect for families with small children. The deck is safe for little ones and Debi and Rob have done a great job providing child friendly items (a bucket of toys, baby monitor, Dora pop up tent, bath toys) to help little travelers feel at home. The beach is a very short walk and restaurants, etc are very easy to get to. This house is also a great in between spot for day trips like the aquarium and the Tillamook Cheese tour. All in all, it was great and we would highly recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jen! We love to hear that the kid-friendly items are being used! We love to leave the slider and/or windows open at night, too. It's just so great to hear the gentle lap of the waves while you sleep, and we have very few bugs so we have opted to leave screens off the windows in favor of the clean, crisp view. We are delighted that you and your little ones enjoyed the Shearwaterhouse.
