Located approximately 5 miles North of Waldport just off Highway 101, the Captain's Cabin is a spacious and nicely furnished get-a-way of approximately 1150 square feet. The Captain's Cabin is decorated with personal nautical and collectible memorabilia from my grandfather who served in the U.S. Navy during and prior to WWII. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths (one with shower, one with tub/shower). The master has a queen-size bed with firm Beauty Rest mattress and the other has a double with a twin bunk. There is also a hide-a-bed sofa in the den and a new large couch and matching chair in the living room, so that up to 8 people can be accommodated comfortably. The dining area offers great views of the pounding surf and is equipped with a new dining table that seats 6 and built in hutch, which contains assorted puzzles and games. A washer and dryer are located in the den area, which adjoins the kitchen. A convenient breakfast bar with 2 chairs separates the kitchen from the den area. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, cookware, and silverware, as well as a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender & more. The living room has a 40" LED TV, as well as a DVD player. There are also TVs equipped with DVD in each of the bedrooms. There are no cable channels, but there is high speed wireless Internet that can be used to stream to the TVs with the proper equipment (e.g. Roku or computer). There are 3 large picture windows in the living room/dining area, 2 of which provide fantastic views of the ocean, crashing waves, and the large volcanic rock formations which this unique area is noted for. There is a corner fireplace in the living room, where you can sit and watch some huge wave action in the wintertime. A large 550 square foot deck wraps around three sides of the home and provides some of the best ocean views in the area. We also have 2 Adirondack chairs for the deck as well as an outside table with 4 chairs should you wish to use them. Cell phone reception is possible from the front deck.
PLEASE NOTE: The Captain's Cabin is a Housekeeping Unit. This means you must leave the cabin as you found it when you leave.

Although the beach accessible by a trail just across the Highway, the easiest beach access is across the highway and about 1 block north. On the way, you can see the remains of ancient Indian shell middens (mounds). The beach below the cabin has magnificent tidal pools and the clamming can be outstanding on low tides, providing the beds are not "sanded-in" and you know the right technique. Whale watching generally occurs between late September and early June, but many of our guests report seeing whales at all times of the year, and often every day of their stay. In the mornings you can usually find a number of fishing vessels within view since Seal Rock is a good fishing spot. Seals can almost always be spotted in the surf or sunning themselves during low tide on the small muffin-shaped rock located almost straight out from the cabin. There is a set of binoculars and a zoom telescope available for your use while there. Crabbing can be experienced in the Alsea Bay, just 5 miles south at Waldport. Fishing is available by deep sea charter boats out of Newport, just 12 miles north. Not to be overlooked is the Oregon Coast Aquarium which has earned a reputation as one of the finest on the west coastand the free Hatfield Marine Science Center, both just south of the bridge at Newport. Just 1 mile south of Yachats is Cape Perpetua, the highest point on the Oregon Coast; the Forest Service has a fascinating visitor's center there with free movies and exhibits, as well as hiking trails that offer spectacular views of the coast.
