Stunning, dog-friendly lakefront home w/ private beach & dock, kayak, & canoe!

This beautiful Florence vacation rental has everything you could want from a lakefront retreat: a private dock and beach, amazing views of Siltcoos Lake, kayaks and a canoe to explore the water, and all the comforts of a thoughtfully furnished home. Perfect for a large group that would like a little extra space and privacy, each level of the home offers a separate entrance, full kitchen, spacious deck, and living areas.

Best of all, perhaps? The neighbors! As you sit back on the expansive deck, elevated above the lake, you might catch sight of an osprey searching for lunch in the lake, or a deer grazing at twilight. Get even closer on the two-person canoe or two Hobie kayaks, available for your use from May to September. Launch them right from your own private dock.

The home itself, of course, offers plenty of comforts and amenities to ensure you'll slip right into "vacation mode" (although WiFi is provided, just in case you need to check your email while you're away). Built into the hillside and offering outstanding views throughout, you'll find over 3,600 square feet of living space and plenty of room for up to thirteen guests.

The main level is on the uppermost floor, so you'll find amazing views from the waterfront windows and a spacious great room with 18-foot vaulted ceilings. Settle into the living area, with plush loveseats and an Italian leather sofa, and enjoy a fire flickering away in the hearth while a movie plays on the flat-screen HDTV (complete with cable and DVD player, of course).

Feeding a large group will be easy with two full kitchens, and the upper-level space is perfectly furnished for a social chef! The granite countertops offer plenty of space for assistant cooks to chop vegetables, while barstools lining one counter let the less helpful guests stay involved in the conversation while they sit and sip on a glass of wine. The stainless steel appliances include a large refrigerator, stovetop with oven, and the all-important dishwasher for easy clean-up.

In addition to the four stools at the bar, there's a long six-person dining table set just before the windows. Soak up your own private waterfront dining, or head out to the deck for an al fresco feast. You'll find a table with chairs and a gas grill for summer barbecues.

The upper level includes a gorgeous master suite, complete with a king bed and a stunning private bath. The seven-foot shower may be the most luxurious spot in the house, complete with imported marble and two brushed bronzed shower heads. The upper level has sleeping accommodations for up to four guests, thanks to the living area's sofa bed and another half bath. The family dog is also welcome to join you for your stay for an additional nightly fee.

Downstairs, you'll find another 1825 square feet of living space, making this one of the most ideal Oregon Coast vacation rentals for reunions or dual-family vacations! There's a second great room with fireplace, living area, and television, along with another full kitchen just as ready to prepare meals - along with seating for eight. There's even a second deck located on this level, so you can enjoy some peaceful meditation or journaling while you look out over the water.

This level has the remaining three bedrooms: one has a queen bed (sleeping two), one has a queen and a twin with an additional twin-size trundle bed (sleeping four), and the final bedroom has a twin-over-queen bunk bed (sleeping three). There's another full bath on this level with his-and-her sinks and a tub/shower combo, as well as a laundry room with washer and dryer so you don't have to worry about muddy hiking clothes or wet bathing suits.

And you will be enjoying the great outdoors here as the Oregon Dunes are just a short drive away! Siltcoos Lake is the largest body of fresh water on the Oregon Coast, and there are endless ways to enjoy yourself here: kayak, canoe, swim, fish, or just relax on the sunny deck with a good book and a cold drink.

When you want to re-enter civilization, the charming town of Florence is just five miles north. There are cafes, shops, galleries, and restaurants galore in historic Old Town Florence, and attractions including the beautiful Heceta Head Lighthouse and, of course, the sandy beaches of the Oregon Coast. A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

You must be 21 years or older to rent this property.

Location can not be beat!
Elisha T. Sep 2019
The family had a fantastic vacation at this home. The view was great and description was spot on for the most part.
Carole B. Sep 2019
This was a wonderful house for a large group. We had 13 adults for 3 days and the house easily could handle a group that size without feeling crowded. We were mostly away playing at the dunes but had an opportunity to use the kayaks and canoes. The lake was so beautiful!! The weather was absolutely gorgeous the whole weekend! There were far more amenities in the house than expected. Although we had packed most of our cooking utensils and pots (not knowing what to expect) I don't think there was a single thing missing! Well supplied. I would have given this a 5 star rating if we had been told prior to reservation that NO TRAILERS ARE ALLOWED AT THIS PROPERTY. This was a big problem for us as we were coming with dune buggies and ATV's and the property was advertised (although I see they have now changed the wording) to have a large driveway that could accommodate a boat and ATV. (Now really! How are the boat and ATV supposed to get there if you can't have any trailers???) After several emails, leaving messages at local Vacasa, and 8-10 phone calls we were finally given a satisfactory "work around" by Vacasa. This wouldn't have been a problem if this information had been shared BEFORE signing the rental agreement. This is a fantastic home just know that you can't bring a trailer.
Lisa G. Jul 2019
Our families were able to enjoy so many activities in the area that are close by and then come together for family meals. It was a great vacation!
janice k. Jun 2019
Views were Incredible. Lovely house. Beds comfortable. Great deck. Water and kayaks fantastic. Deer everywhere. Highly recommend.
Scott D. Apr 2019
The house worked great for us, it was clean with lots of room for everyone. Easy to get in and out of with a trailer, and close to the dunes. We would definitely come back.
Dirk K. Apr 2019
Great home , close to the dunes and town
Diana N. Mar 2019
Great for large families or two families. Thank you for the kayaks and canoe.
Kimberly O. Nov 2018
Loved the house!!! everything is perfect. There is enough room that large groups can spread out.
Solomon M. Oct 2018
I love...everything the house perfect for our group...nice bed...clean.. thank you very much!
Melinda B. Sep 2018
We loved the dual living levels for our group. The lake was so peaceful. This is our third year and we will be back next year for sure!!
Geoffrey P. Sep 2018
We loved the location of this house. The lake view and the wildlife that we saw were beautiful.
Joyce B. Aug 2018
House was perfect for our family of 6adults and 3 children. Kids played downstairs while adults visited upstairs most of the time.
Enjoyed having coffee on the deck every morning while enjoying the beautiful view. Dock was perfect for our boat. Fishing was remarkable. Beds were comfortable and the place was clean. We could have used more dish towels and cloths. There was only one potholder with a hole in the middle. Minor things. We would like to come again.
Amnon B. Aug 2018
Ideal place for a large family
Great master room on the upper floor and great rooms for the kids on the lower ground
Well equipped and great location
Will be nice to have some milk and maybe some fruits and a bottle of wine for the price paid
Jennifer B. Aug 2018
Loved staying in this home! It had two decks, one uncovered and one covered, over looking the lake. Kind of felt like being on a cruise ship with the awesome views from the windows. Only concern was the spider webs all over chairs and patio. This place probably needs frequent spraying since it’s in the woods. Would definitely stay here again!
Kenneth S. Jul 2018
A fantastic lake house with everything needed. Expensive? YES, but the experience...Priceless
Michael E. Jun 2018
Great house to stay at for the weekend. Great time on the lake catching bass and trout. Only thing sucks is the time we was there was rain every day but still loved the stay at the house.
Stephanie S. Apr 2018
We loved our spring break getaway! The house is incredible and was so inviting and relaxing. We loved the view. This would be a great stay any time of year.
Linda L. Dec 2017
The floor plan of thus propert is terrific for a large family gathering!
Anthony P. Nov 2017
This is a very nice house in a very beautiful location. The floor plan was great because all the kids could play games or watch movies downstairs while the adults visited (and snacked!) upstairs. The kitchen was well stocked with all sorts of cooking utensils and appliances. Both levels have separate decks with fantastic views of the lake. Both levels also have full kitchens and laundry rooms. The neighborhood was quiet and we saw plenty of deer and ducks everyday. All in all, we had a great time and we would definitely rent this house again!
Ron B. Oct 2017
Our 3 generation family of 11 loved the place. Plenty of room for all of us to relax without feeling crowded. We were able to cook and eat together. It was perfect for our coastal weekend.

We did the dune buggy ride (the fast one) and Sand Land Adventures and it was very thrilling and fun. Also walked around and ate in Florence - a very quaint town. We even had beautiful and sunny weather which is apparently rare for Florence.

Good time!
Candace V. Oct 2017
Family reunion here with adult children and grandkids. Beautiful newer home and was shocked at the beauty when we walked in! Beautiful views and beautiful home! Extra large home very spacious! Kayaks, fishing comic books, TV and so much more!
Hilary C. Sep 2017
Right when i seen this home on vacasa i feel inlove! When we showed up it was even greater. Lots of parking. The home is beautiful. There is everything you need there and some. 11 people stayed there comfortably . The kayaks and canoe were a hit! The lake was gorgeous. Couple of deers were also hanging out. I would definitely recommend this home and I would also stay here again.
Melinda B. Sep 2017
This home was great for our family of 7. Great place to relax and enjoy the lake. We took advantage of boating and riding quads on the dunes. It was a great vacation.
Leila F. Aug 2017
First class house. Two thumbs up.
Cheryl M. Aug 2017
This was a perfect home for our group of 3 families. The lake view was absolutely beautiful most especially in the early morning and dusk. The split level was very convenient. Adults were able to enjoy the first level while the teens were able to have their own space downstairs. We especially appreciated having 2 laundry rooms with great appliances. We had to reset the routers a few times a day in order to access the wifi. This home was better than what I expected.
Sharon D. Jul 2017
Its a lovely home and perfect for large groups. The air conditioning needs to be fixed to keep the upper level cool in the summer heat. Be sure and close the blinds up stairs to help keep it cool. Should note that the persons on the lower level reported that any walking or movement above was very noisy...wore earplugs when taking naps. Other than that, lovely place.
Inna R. Jul 2017
Great house with lots of space. Great place with a beautiful view. Enjoyed kayaks provided by the house. Everything was great, just wish the wi-fi worked.
Jessica B. Jul 2017
This place is made to make your friends jealous! I was taken aback by the front door along, then once you step in you literally stop breathing. The house is amazing with two full kitchens and balconies, all the appliances you can ask for, plus a view that is simply not found in many places. Holy Moly! Talk about not needing a filter for Instagram! The cheery on top was the dock that is made to be jumped off of. The lake was wonderful as well, not too cold, dogs loved it, and many ways to get in and out of it. Trust me, this place has everything you could ever ask for! I can't wait to stay here again!
Nicole M. Jul 2017
This home was a relaxing and beautiful home in an amazing setting. We loved vacationing here! There was fishing on the dock, sand rail rides on the dunes, shopping in Old Town and great food all around. The location was perfect for anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This home put us right in the middle of nature and we loved it. The house itself was huge and beautful!!! A great family vacation for sure!
Cindie S. Jun 2017
Wonder place. Loved the quiet. Close to everything while feeling remote. Best option on the Oregon coast.
Cindy O. May 2017
Wonderful house, clean, lots of space for a large group, beautiful lake. A must place to stay in Florence!!!
Veronica G. May 2017
Loved the views over the Lake. Home is very clean & comfortable. We had three couples stay for our Team collaboration meeting. It was perfect to mix our business then have time for recreation too. There was everything we needed.
Highly recommend and would definitely come back for another stay.
Katrina G. Apr 2017
My best friend and I reserved this home as a spring break get-away for our two families. The house had everything needed on each floor (kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, livingrooms, laundry room and dining room). The view of the lake was gorgeous. We had a fun, relaxing time! We are very pleased and will return next year!
Amy W. Apr 2017
Our two families loved this house. The perfect amount of space and beds. Beautiful views and open floor plan. So enjoyed the canoe and kayaks!
Bob S. Feb 2017
We were excited about this home from the moment we saw it on VRBO. When we showed up, we were not disappointed! The house and the atmosphere are beautiful. The setting was so serene and peaceful that we had the vacation of a lifetime. We live in a world of stress at home and we were able to leave all that behind and enjoy what I would consider to be the best vacation home we have ever stayed in. It was clean, comfortable and overly spacious! I highly recommend this home and I know we will stay here again. One note that the listing does not state, but potential renters should know is that the garage is locked and not accessible for use by the renter. This wasn't a huge deal as there is plenty of parking, but it's nice to know up front.
Trisha L. Feb 2017
We came to Florence for a wedding. The property manager allowed us to invite the bride's family over for dinner. It was a perfect house for visiting. Thank you.
Michele T. Feb 2017
Great house, beautiful view, everything you need. Plenty of room for the teens to be downstairs and stay up late. Great girls weekend.
Ellen M. Jan 2017
I stayed here with my family over a long weekend, and it was fabulous. It was clean and situated in a convenient location in Florence. We were all very happy with the house.
Aaron T. Nov 2016
The house was even better than we imagined. We invited several friends to join us for the weekend and to be a part of our wedding in Old Town Florence. So we we're hoping the house would be large and beautiful. We were not disappointed. The kayaks we're really fun and the grill came in very handy for our steak dinner. Vista Point was an amazing place to stay!!
Melinda B. Sep 2016
Wonderful views of the lake, peaceful setting. Great vacation place for our large group!
Shannon V. Sep 2016
We brought 4 generations together for a long weekend and the house was perfect for a group this size. There were 8 adults and a baby and a small dog. The kitchen is great to cook in, we found everything we needed and the second kitchen did come in handy a time or two =)
The dock with the kayaks and canoe were a huge bonus to the trip, and we did fish the entire time when we were home.
The view and the location of the house were great and we would love to stay here again =)
Angela B. Aug 2016
We stayed with a 3 family group of 13. Plenty of room, beautiful views, big house.
Just a few cons: when I began my search for a house, I was looking for a 2 car garage for we came with classic cars. The first picture of this house is just that: a HUGE 2 car garage with a perfect driveway. So beware for I was told a garage is a "amenity" and it was not available on this house. I will forever ask this question now before renting again.
Like the other review-not enough beds for 13 we had to bring a air mattress but no big deal.
Charlie J. Jun 2016
Awsome place to stay. The view is excellent. Lots of room and nice lake access.
Donna D. Jun 2016
Upon turning into the driveway, we realized this was exactly the home we were hoping for. The million dollar views from every window were breathtaking. The decor, furnishings, and kitchens were stylish and comfortable. We were able to cook dinners for 12 people easily in the kitchen. We enjoyed using the Kayaks and canoe on the lake. All were in very good condition. Thanks also for the life vests. In Old Town Florence we had a wonderful dinner at The Waterfront Depot, lunches at Restobar and Le Bouchon, and cups of crab bisque from a crab shack on the lower dock. All were fabulous. We had a great ATV dune ride with Sandland Adventures and took a scenic ride up the coast to the Lighthouse and many awesome viewpoints.
There are always cons to a rental property and sadly this home had a few. The downstairs dryer knob was not on the dryer, making it unusable.
The BBQ burner shields were were completely rusted, broken off, and 2 were missing making the BBQ seem unsafe. We did use it, but we were cautious.
There were only 6 bath towels upon our arrival. We made 3 calls, leaving messages on the answering machine, and sending 1 email to Vacasa asking for more towels. None of these calls were returned, however someone showed up the next day with extra towels. A return call would have been a better business practice.
The overall cleanliness was good, such as the kitchens, baths, furniture, floors, and linens. Our concern was with the detail cleaning. The tracks for the windows were cobwebby and had dead flies in them. The overhead ceiling fan in the upstairs has a very thick layer of dust on all the blades. The decks were full of spiders and spiderwebs. We understand the location is in Oregon amidst beautiful forest land, but it took 4 of us an hour to make the decks suitable for us to sit and enjoy them. We didn't expect to have to do this maintenance. I'm not sure if the owner is aware of the subpar job on the detail cleaning the cleaning company performs. The house is too beautiful to have this be an issue for the guests.
Overall I highly recommend this property. The issues are minor details that can be easily addressed.
Manager response:
We are disappointed to see that there were some inconveniences with this stay. The Property Manager has had the BBQ flame covers replaced and has ordered a new knob for the dryer. Spider webs on the deck railings have been removed, light bulbs have been replaced, the BBQ has been cleaned, and the hand railing in the home has been scrubbed as well.
Joani H. Jun 2016
So amazing. Plenty of space and well appointed. There are a lot of stairs heading down to the lake, so be sure to consider that if stairs are a difficulty.

We stayed with another couple and it was nice having two floors with all the amenities.
Janyce (Jan) P. May 2016
Our group loved getting to be here - a lovely house in a beautiful location. Already working on how and when we might get to return.
Scott M. Apr 2016
I came her for my bachelor party. We were a group of ten and we all thought the house was amazing. The location can't be beat. Right on the river, two decks, it's own dock; just beautiful. Very peaceful to wake up in morning and stand out on the deck and just look at the lake. With ten people everyone had a place to sleep no problem. The whole house is beautiful and well layed out. A big kitchen open right to dining area and living room. Property has a decent sized front yard, we had plenty of room for corn-hole and polish frisbee with a square patch of grass in the back yard as well. Plenty of parking for 5 cars. This was a perfect stay for our group and we are hoping to come back and make this an annual trip.
Amanda W. Apr 2016
We will be staying here again. This house was everything we wanted and more! Fit all 13 of us extremely comfortably!
Sheri D. Apr 2016
Such a beautiful home in a beautiful place! We loved our visit!!
Michelle E. Mar 2016
What a beautiful, gorgeous property and home. I'm a little selfish and don't want to tell anyone how much we enjoyed our stay, as I want this house to be available again to rent and want to keep it our little secret!
Ida B. Mar 2016
Two friends and I stayed here and enjoyed the spacious, beautiful, well maintained home right on the river. Even though the weather was a little wet and windy, we were cozy inside with the fireplace and enjoyed movies and some games and conversations. It is also very close to many other opportunities in Florence and we took advantage of some of them. Would stay here again in a heart beat.
George S. Feb 2016
A very nice house with incredible lake views from balconies. The lake sunrises were beautiful.
Walter S. Dec 2015
Great house and location. Beds have no box springs or cheap box springs. Four of our seven guests had trouble sleeping on their beds. Queen downstairs just has a pad on plywood.
Million dollar house with hundred dollar beds.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your review. We apologize that sleep was difficult for this group; the Property Manager and owner have placed new mattresses and new bed frames in the home as well as fixed the box spring issues. Good sleep will not be hard to come by now!
LINDA P. Dec 2015
A great place to stay for a large party. The 2 kitchens and 2 set of washer and dryers is very nice.
Anne D. Nov 2015
This beautiful and spacious house is located right on Lake Siltcoos. Huge windows on both levels provide panoramic views of the lake. Take advantage of the kayaks and canoe if you can, but be warned - the canoe is a little wobbly. My daughter and her boyfriend took an unexpected dip in the lake because they weren't careful. This was quite a shock in November, but everyone (including the canoe) came back safely.
The location of the house is perfect. Short drive into downtown Florence. Park on 1st or second street and walk around the small but quaint neighborhood. Several cute shops and charming bars and restaurants. We especially enjoyed the Waterfront Depot for dinner. The place is small, so make a reservation.
We took several day trips to nearby Yachats, Depoe Bay, and the Heceta Lighthouse. All along hwy 101 there are places to stop and view the beauty of the coast. I also recommend the Lake Siltcoos Trail for a short hike. Total distance is 3-4 miles through the beautiful forest. A little hilly, but I am in my 50s, in decent shape, and I had no trouble with the walk.
Sylvia O. Oct 2015
Because of the number of stairs in the house as well as those to the lake area, this property would not be suitable for mobility impaired individuals. Also, because there are two living levels, it is not well furnished for a group larger than 6 (advertising says it accommodates 13) wishing to dine together--limited dining seating, deck seating, dishware, glassware, silverware on one level. Very nice to have a canoe and two kayaks and great area for this activity, however, very limited life vest safety equipment provided. We did not know to bring our own. Despite these limitations, our reunion group of 8 adults greatly enjoyed our time there.
Matthew T. Oct 2015
Awesome house on an awesome lake, we had so much fun that we have decided to make this a yearly getaway. The kayaks are great! Worth the expense for sure.
Manager response:
We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay and happy to oblige. See you next year!
Jacob H. Aug 2015
I can't say enough about this house and this experience! The location is so great, the amenities of the house including your own dock keep you busy for days, and the house itself is HUGE with split level activity that allows for group fun and privacy alike. I would recommend this spot to anyone planning a incredible family or group getaway!!
Jim C. May 2015
Beautiful Home! Enjoyed the quiet time to spend with family and friends, and getting some much needed relaxing time!
Jack O. May 2015
This property is wonderful. Awesome views from both decks! The house is very spacious and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed fishing from the dock and taking out the canoe and kayaks. With two living spaces there is plenty of privacy for two families (our situation). We would definitely rent again.
Jane S. Dec 2014
This was a beautiful home!! Very nice and roomy for our family. It was wonderful having the two kitchens for preparing our Thanksgiving meal. We had a wonderful vacation and will definitely be back!
Marilyn B. Nov 2014
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. Plan to come back next year.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review of Vista Point Lakehouse on Siltcoos Lake! We are so glad you had a wonderful vacation here. This is an excellent location for relaxing and enjoying the gorgeous lake views while still being close to the city. We hope to see you all again soon!
Chandra H. Oct 2014
We were a group of 4 couples that meet somewhere in Oregon every fall. We've stayed in some really great houses, & this one rates right up at the top. A great kitchen for cooking our big meals, views to die for, lots of space, & very peaceful & quiet. This lake is beautiful, & about the only gripe would be we wished the house sat down closer to the water, since there were a lot of stairs to get down there. Also made it hard to haul our canoes down & back up to the cars, but the height of the house made the views from the decks beyond good. LOVE this place, & we all want to come back!
Christina C. Sep 2014
Our whole group loved the beautiful house!. The double living areas were great for our group of adults. The kitchen and dining were perfect for cooking for a large group. The boat dock made a great fishing spot. Deer wandered thru the front and back yard in the evenings. Looking to book again next year.
Don S. Aug 2014
Spendy, and worth every dime of it. Beautiful place,, well kept and all the creature comforts you'll need,
Linda G. Aug 2014
Anyone who uses this house will not be disappointed. The lake sand dunes shopping is at your finger tips. We loved our stay....
Manager response:
Thank you for this great review. Its great to hear you enjoyed your stay so much. We look forward to seeing you again!
Meredith W. Jul 2014
We were four family members reunioning from all across the nation and found staying at the house was just perfect. We were able to make most our meals together and have lots of good time remembering the past. We have bragged about our experience to anyone who will listen!
Manager response:
Were so glad that your stay with us was so enjoyable and that you were able to enjoy the local restaurants and Given Back Birdhouse Museum. We look forward to seeing you again!
Claudia P. Jul 2014
Your home was a perfect place for our family to gather. We came from Wisconsin and Illinois to meet up with our kids from Portland and their foster children( ages 7, 13 + 20.) We were looking for somewhere that would appeal to the whole family and came upon this lake home. Everyone had a great time. The kids caught their first fish! We enjoyed the kayaks and the canoe. Thanks for having life jackets in all sizes and games for us to play. This home is beautiful.
Manager response:
This is great feedback! We're so glad that your experience with us was such a positive one and that your family enjoyed all the great amenities this home offers.
Kelly G. Jul 2014
We've rented a lot of vacation homes in lifetime and this by far is our favorite. It was exactly what we were looking for. Extremely spacious. Laundry room on each floor, kitchen and living room area on each floor, deck on each floor.....amazing. GREAT for two families sharing a vacation home together. Tons of room and comfortable living spaces. Beautiful Views. Kayaks and Canoes to use on the lake. Really great lake to kayak. Loved everything about it. We will one hundred percent be back.
Manager response:
Thank you for this great review! It's such a pleasure to know that you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful home with it's amazing views. We are so glad that you found it to be comfortable and spacious for the two families!
