Exquisite Lakefront townhome - perfect for a romantic getaway or a family gathering. Comfortable, cozy furnishings adorn the inside and breathtaking views adorn the outside. Nature lovers will delight over this lake front, bird watching treasure! (a family of river otters have been known to preside in Spring Lake and adjoining pond). Situated at the south end of Rockaway Beach, Oregon. Our vacation rental comes well equipped with modern luxuries, a fully equipped kitchen, a hot tub, 2 bedrooms/2 bath with a sleeping loft for the kiddos, washer/dryer facilities, board games, books, family friendly video library, basic cable, and WiFi. We have also taken the time to decorate the walls with personal works of art and have furnished it with natural wood and craftsman flair. We wanted this to feel like home to all who visit. You can bring your Laptop and work remotely (WiFi included) or leave your cares behind spending time Canoeing, Kayaking, Fishing - or playing all day at the beach.

Only a short 100 paces to Twin Rocks beach access. Seven miles of sandy beach. At our end there are massive logs for building forts and personal beach cubbies. You can spend all weekend creating a family fort among the logs at this beach.

This property offers wonderful shared access to the Spring Lake Park amenities, a large covered Gazebo with an outdoor fireplace and BBQ, expansive grassy point for playing family games or kite flying, 2 long docks for fishing - launching water craft or watching wildlife.

There are several beach homes available as vacation rentals at Spring Lake Park if your planning for a large family gathering. We contract with Beach-Break Vacation rentals to manage and monitor our property. They are a local company that are very helpful and responsive to both our guests needs and ourselves as owners. If you are looking for more than one home they can help you with that too.

This property is fairly easy access for disabled. Although there are a few steps up from street level, there is 1 bedroom (with a queen bed) downstairs and 1 upstairs (as well as the loft). The downstairs bathroom also has grab bars installed in the shower and next to the commode for elderly or disabled persons convenience and safety.

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 Coastal Oregon

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.

Relaxing in beautiful surrounding

  • 5 of 5

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!

Peaceful, super cozy, and beautiful getaway oasis

  • 5 of 5

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!!!!

Charming Fall Retreat and Lovely Mornings!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in the fall on a last minute weekend trip and it was the perfect escape from the city. The cabin was spacious and well furnished. We used the wi-fi to play our music throughout the house. Early mornings in the hot-tub overlooking the misty lake is one the great pleasures of this cabin. We also enjoyed exploring the lake with the kayaks. In the evenings, you can catch a beautiful sunset on the beach. We brought several picnics to the beach during our short stay. We loved this trip!

A fantastic place to be

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Spring Lake Beach Retreat last fall, and we absolutely LOVED it. The property is in a terrific location -- across from Twin Rocks and some of the most beautiful Oregon coastline imaginable. We spent 10 days exploring the area and just chilling around the house, and it was one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever had. The amenities are spot-on, and we loved the fact that rental includes bicycles, kayaks, canoes, and a very romantic view of Spring Lake from our back patio. The other thing we liked about this place is the town itself. Rockaway Beach is a quiet, intimate town, but it's also one with a big heart. Every time we went out to eat in Rockaway, or to the grocery store, or to walk on the beach, we ran into amazing locals who were incredibly friendly and welcoming. I feel like we made friends for life there. We will absolutely return to this property. In fact, we're hoping to book again for late August 2013 or some time in September. This place rocks.
