About Darlynn Griffin
We live in Portland, OR and have enjoyed traveling to the coast on weekends for many years. We are artists and natural outdoor lovers. As our family grew we wanted to offer an home-away-from-home for our children to treasure.
Darlynn Griffin purchased this Townhome in 2006
Why Darlynn Griffin chose Rockaway Beach
It was a dream for our family to have a personal getaway on the Oregon Coast. Rockaway Beach is only 2 hrs from Portland and is an easy weekend trip. We love the nostalgic, down home feel of the town. Antiques stores, the arcade, the secret old growth forest of Rockaway Beach. There are lots of adventures for all age levels to enjoy. We feel so lucky to be able to bask in the magnificent scenery and discover the special places along the coast. We are so very happy to share this experience with our guests. Be sure to leave a note in our registry and here on the blog. Enjoy!
What makes this Townhome unique
I love waking early and slipping into the hot tub before anyone else stirs. You can watch the water fowl and seagulls as you are soaking from the porch. We will spend hrs building forts on the beach with the drift wood and logs that are so plentiful on this end of the Rockaway Beach. Wonderful fresh fish is offered on the fish market on the docks of Garibaldi. We adore an oyster - salmon or crab feast.

Lakefront vacation happiness
We had a great time and the unit had everything we needed for a nice weekend. Darlynn had it well stocked and it was clearly a great place for family vacations (kid friendly with lots of stuffed animals). Our dogs enjoyed swimming in the lake and it's just a short walk across the road through to the beach. We stayed in early summer but it was easy to see how the place could be very cozy in the winter with the gas fire. We look forward to our next stay!
So glad you enjoyed your stay on Spring Lake by the Sea. Definately sounds like everyone (including the pups) had a great visit. Come visit us again.
Best of Both Worlds
Lake play and beach play. It doesn't get much better than that. A townhouse equipped with 2 kayaks and fishing poles right on a lake and the beach a 2 block walk away! We had such a great time. We fished, kayaked, enjoyed the hot tub and had so much much fun playing at the beach. The townhouse is very nice and comfortable. It has 1 bedroom on the main floor and a loft upstairs with a bunk bed which will sleep 3, and a separate bedroom for 2. We will return!
So glad you enjoyed the Kayaks and the Fishing! You hit the nail on the Head - enjoying the Lake and the Sea. Happy you were able to take it all in. Come see us again soon.
This lakefront townhouse was super clean. Plenty of dishes and towels. The view was beautiful. Very homey and comfortable. We stayed a week and it was hard to leave. Definitely going back
We are so glad you had a good time at Spring Lake. Also glad you enjoyed our new linens. Always nice to have plenty of soft towels around. Come back and visit again.
Relaxing in beautiful surrounding
This rental is the perfect location for a relaxing good time. We enjoyed the solitude and tranquility of the lake and easy access for the beach at Twin Rocks.
Very well equipped with lake toys, bikes, movies (I think we accidentally donated 2-hope everyone enjoys Trolls and BFG-doh) and hot tub. Our kids had fun with the games and stuffed animals in the loft area. We already a request from the teenager to come back in the summer so he can perfect the kayaks!
Great little getaway!
Rhonda we are so happy you enjoyed your stay. My daughter was thrilled that her well loved stuffies found new friends to bond with. Glad you had a good visit and we look forward to your next one. :)
Peaceful, super cozy, and beautiful getaway oasis
I wanted to take my friend who was visiting from South America to a special spot on the Oregon Coast, but since she's been to Cannon Beach already, I wanted to check out new towns. And here was Rockaway Beach, and this amazing house to spend a wonderful weekend in. Our first time in Rockaway Beach.
The back doors of the home open up to a beautiful lake. Imagine taking a private hot tub in the misty morning on the back deck overlooking this lake, or having your hot breakfast bevvie on the back deck, while watching and listening to birds and wildlife, with forests and mountains visible in the distance, or sitting out there at night with the moonlight.
The house has everything you can possibly need, kitchen appliances fully stocked, entertainment needs as well, including games, and movies. The location, close to the cutest towns and delicious seafood options made it so fun and easy to explore the area as well, but mainly we spent most of our time enjoying the comforts of the house.
To get to the beach, just cross 101 on foot (or car if you prefer) and you're there in minutes! Rockaway has a vast coastal beach to walk and explore... seriously a gem. To have a lake on one side and the ocean on the other is unbeatable. The energy in the house is very warm and the home is artistically decorated, the house is super clean and well kept, and the beds were really comfy. You will not be sorry. My friend and I only wished we had more days to spend there. PS: and to boot, the manager was helpful and kind. Enjoy!!!!
Thank you for choosing Spring Lake Beach Retreat to use as your home-base for your wonderful coastal adventure. So glad you enjoyed your stay.
