Why Marshall Thompson chose Coastal Oregon

Some people are 'Ocean' people. Others are 'mountain' people. This property is the perfect blend for both.

What makes this house unique

Viewing the elk. Star filled night sky. Fishing. Close to beach. Very quiet. Friendly Oregon people.

Why Keep A Dream A Secret

  • 5 of 5

Some experiences in life you want to keep to yourself so they stay that way. I am tempted to do that with BOVPARRTI (Rental), but I have to let others know that this rental is very special for those that are looking for a place like home away from home to slow down and take in the Pacific Northwest. This rental is a very nice large vacation home, spacious, clean, ample provisions and yes, a river and awesome ocean/pasture views run through it. There is plenty of space inside for a large family as well as outside by the fire pit or on the deck overlooking the ocean/pasture. It can be a little tricky to find if you don't follow the explicit directions, but that makes the site extremely private. It is a place where you can get provisions in town and just stay the whole time or make daily excursions to view all the natural wonders around this beautiful location on the planet. Having the full kitchen and laundry was a life-saver for our family of 5 although there are many great restaraunts as well as a couple of great local micro-breweries. We stayed during the summer for 7 days and 6 star-filled nights complete with spectacular meteor showers. Next time I would like to stay even longer or come back during the fall or spring.

Another Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at A River Runs Through It and we were not disappointed. This place is truly amazing. We watched the elk in the field 6 of the 7 days we were there. This house is still like new and we loved everything about it. We will definately be back! Thank you Marshall for creating such a wonderful place.

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Oregon Coast. Decided to rent a house instead of a motel. Boy are we glad we did. Not only was the house as advertised, the view was amazing.

This home is beautifully maintained and spacious. Decor is homey. Everything you need is there for you.

Our grand daughters loved this place, they cooked hot dogs on the bbq, rode their bikes and ran around for hours. He got to see the elk herd twice a day, something you don't get to see much.

You are very close to town and many beautiful beaches. Very centrally located to head north or south. We have told many friends already about this wonderful place and plan to tell more. We would most definitely stay here again

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The view is beautiful! Really enjoyed seeing the elk every morning! A great location close enough to lots of great things to see and do! From a day on the Oregon Coast beach to a day in the Redwoods! The house is set up very nice and is very clean. Thanks for a great place to stay!

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and well appointed. The views were incredible and the home is less than 10 minutes from town, but extremely private. The owner was nice to work with and quickly refunded our deposit. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting a quite serene getaway. The only con I had was that I needed a sleep mask in the master bedroom. Beautiful high windows, but too much light for me. Thank you Marshall for letting us enjoy your home!

Restful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Only gripe - the weather was kinda crummy except for the first and last day. BUT we still thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house. What a Master Bedroom! What a View from the kitchen, living room, bedroom...loved it! The house was roomy, LOTS of windows and natural light. We had such a quiet and restful time which we really needed. I enjoy cooking and all equipment necessary for cooking was provided, so we mostly ate in. Because it was a one-story house; my oldest sister was able to come with us. She's mostly blind and has trouble walking but she really enjoyed her time there as well. The house is much larger than the pictures portray. Thank you for sharing it with us.
