When I'm scouting for the perfect vacation rental, Lincoln City, Oregon, often comes to mind. Renowned for its seven miles of stunning coastline, Lincoln City offers a blend of beautiful beaches, lush forests, and a vibrant arts scene. This Siletz River cabin in Lincoln City truly captures the essence of the area.

The house is not only aesthetically pleasing and the very definition of comfort but it's also ensconced on three sides by the river. This prime location lets visitors feel a deep connection to the water, further amplified by the city's famous kite festivals, glass art discoveries, and the serene backdrop of the Cascade Mountains. With every visit, you're reminded of the captivating natural beauty and rich cultural experiences that make Lincoln City a true Oregon treasure.

It actually used to be an ice house for a nearby salmon cannery, and you can see old pictures of the house hanging in the hallway when you first enter.

This rental is the perfect option for good friends or family looking for a relaxing place to stay that’s still close enough to the city and other Oregon Coast attractions. You can choose to lounge around the house sprawled out on the large sectional sofa, take a little adventure kayaking down the Siletz River through the wildlife sanctuary, or just relax on the large deck that wraps around the house enjoying your morning cup of coffee.

Here you can watch birds like blue herons, egrets, and kingfishers or other wildlife like wandering deer and seals who like to jump up to the dock, especially when they’re in search of salmon during their run in September and October. Don’t forget to say hello to the local fishermen as they pass by!


There are two master bedrooms both with king beds and their own bathrooms, so you don’t have to fight over who gets what room. Both rooms come with luxury bedding, linens, and incredibly comfortable beds. This place definitely doesn’t skimp on the good stuff!

There’s a large dining room table where you can dine while watching the sunset along the river.
