Coos Bay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + , 1 Bath, (Can sleep 2 adults one child)

The Little Cabin on the River is licensed through the Coos County Public Health Department, State of Oregon, License #54468.

Hideout in a coastal forest. Built in the early 60's as a fishing retreat, it is a perfect getaway for two adults. Completely remodeled, this cozy little cabin is located right on the river and in the heart of old logging history. With the mountains and river, it provides a perfect excuse to hike, bike, fish and explore. Minutes from Coos Bay, enjoy the beaches, local seafood, and a barbecue all in the same day.

Located on the East Fork of the Millicoma River, three miles from Golden and Silver Falls State Park in Coos County, and with the 92,000 acre Elliott State Forest and the 210,000 acre Weyerhaeuser Millicoma Tree Farm as neighbors, you'll enjoy the beautiful southern Oregon Coast Range at its best.

With a bright open kitchen and living area, it makes your stay comfortable and relaxing. Heated by a gas fireplace, it makes cold winter nights cozy and comfortable. The main bedroom boasts a comfortable queen bed, and in the winter warm cozy flannel sheets and down comforter. There is a small bunk area off of the main bedroom with one small built-in rustic bed.

With 80' of river frontage, watch river birds, otters, ospreys, salmon, chipmunks, quail, deer and the occasional elk, who venture down to enjoy the apple orchard. Build a fire in the fire pit on the river bank below the cabin's private deck and enjoy an evening under the stars. We even provide the wood!

During the summer months, when the river is at its lowest, enjoy a small island where blue heron, ducks, deer, otters, kingfishers, and other river wildlife come to explore. Right in front of the cabin, it makes morning coffee a whole lot more enjoyable.

THE FISH ARE HERE! Chinook salmon spawn in front of the cabin from November to January and steelhead fishing starts mid-December and runs through March. Trout season runs from May 26th through October 31st. In the fall experience the beautiful colors of nature and in the winter, perhaps a snowfall or two.

Spring brings lot's of early wildflowers like the Chocolate Lily, the white and pink Trillium, and the beautiful native rhododendrons in colors from white to deep purple. During the months of July through late September, fill your basket with fresh blackberries or spend time picking apples in our orchard. In October, visit the Mahaffey Ranch in the town of Allegany, and pick out that perfect pumpkin. Enjoy their corn maze and cannon, and the best apple cider in the state.

Open all year are the wonderful hiking trails at Golden and Silver Falls State Park. Hike through an old growth forest of Douglas Fir, Big Leaf Maple and Oregon Myrtlewood, while enjoying the scenic, beautiful and historic Glenn Creek. At a height of 240' Golden Falls is quite possibly the most impressive waterfall in the Coast Range of Oregon. Both falls are located within a rustic state park, adorned by a trail system and a nice picnic area at the trailhead. Originally the Allegany to Scottsburg Pack Trail, Silver Falls hiking path was a stage coach route from 1909 to 1912.

Featuring a fully equipped kitchen, and plenty of towels, pack your toothbrush, and those books you've wanted to read, and stay awhile. Whatever you choose, we know you'll enjoy your stay.

(We have provided several books on our area's local history, covering logging, legends and mysteries, along with vintage photos covering the original town of Allegany and Golden & Silver Falls. Hike above Golden Falls and explore the old homestead, making for an exciting day trip.)

SPEND A DAY IN THE WOODS WITH A FORESTER: Explore Coos County's first guided tour through a working forest with a professional forester. Bring your kids and your questions. FREE July through September on Wednesdays from 1:00 - 4:30 p.m. Free transportation provided departing from the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce. RSVP 541-269-0215 or toll free 1-800-824-8486.

About Tom & Dee Jackson

I enjoy fishing, gardening, and hiking. I have been fishing here since I was eight years old. I just enjoy the awesome seclusion of this area. This picture, taken in front of the cabin, shows myself with a fresh caught steelhead. Caught this year, right alongside the cabin, it weighed out at 14 lbs and 32''. Another great place to fish for steelhead, is at Nesika Park, located just three minutes from the cabin!

Tom & Dee Jackson purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Tom & Dee Jackson chose Coastal Oregon

I grew up alongside this little cabin. When it came up for sale in 2010, I couldn't think of anything better than to open it to family, friends, and travelers. My family has been a part of this wonderful valley since the 50's. Never crowded, it is a great place to kick back and relax. The weather is milder here and we don't get that cold wind or fog off the ocean. This is a rural area, but also a safe and fun place to bring your family. Mine grew up here.

What makes this cabin unique

I really enjoy all of the seasons here. I look forward to the summer barbecues, swimming, and just being outside. Fall is wonderful with all the trees changing colors and the salmon traveling up the river to spawn. One of the best places to see this is right in front of this little cabin. Winter brings wild mushroom picking and the rain, which raises the river and makes Golden and Silver Falls so spectacular. Fishing is one of my most favorite hobbies, so I live where I can do that. In Spring everything is green, the birds start to nest, and the mountain mist is beautiful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your cabin is very nice. You have done a great job on the remodel! The kitchen is well stocked with spices, etc. and there are plenty of dishes, utensils and tools. The bed was very comfortable. My husband and I enjoyed the books on the local history, very interesting! Enjoyed our stay. Paula & Mack, Roseburg, OR

Super comfy cozy and private

  • 5 of 5

What a great cozy quiet little place! Tom and Deep were very sweet and even offered to let me come the night before to miss the coastal storm. Very generous of them. They also called to see if I needed anything and made sure I was doing good. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting this enchanting state!

Gorgeous, Relaxing, and one of a kind.

Dee and Tom were such great host to us. The Cabin was so well kept and truly an enjoyable time for our family. We wanted to do some fishing and Tom and Dee lent us a fishing pole to go out and explore the beautiful area. We can't wait to come back and take in the nature and relax in the this one of a kind place. Thank you for having us Tom and Dee!

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

Kudos to the owners! What a great place! Off the beaten path, perfect for R n R! The property is manicured, the scenery outstanding! Everything you need is provided here. It was hot when we stayed, but we didn't care...2 overhead fans and a wind tunnel portable fan cooled it right down! Very private, quiet & serene; excellent bird watching! The owner is very responsive to emails, totally gave us privacy, you'd never know they were next door. Thoroughly enjoyed this place; Can't wait to return!

Perfect place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights at the Little Cabin on the River and our stay was perfect. Everything we needed was in this darling little home. Wish we had stayed longer! We were on a three week road trip and staying at the Little Cabin was the vacation we needed within our vacation.

We relaxed on the deck while the river flowed by, listening to the birds...and watched the neighbor geese.

The Cabin had everything we needed: homey living room, well appointed kitchen and comfy bed. I enjoyed soaking in the antique bath tub. We took our dogs on walks in the area and our last day we went to The Silver Falls. What a treat!

I am hopeful that we can return one day. Love this Little Cabin on the River.
