Rustic waterfront woodland lodge w/ impressive lake views from patio!

Experience a winning mix of rustic relaxation and coastal exploration in this private lakeside Rockaway Beach vacation rental, situated right on Lake Lytle (with unobstructed views!), and just a five-minute walk to the ocean.

This nicely decorated two-bedroom retreat is located just off the Oregon Coast Highway. This vacation rental is only three minutes north of downtown Rockaway Beach, with its quaint shops and eateries, and in short distance to other popular Northern Oregon Coast destinations, such as Manzanita, Cannon Beach, and Lincoln City.

With vaulted wood-beam ceilings, wood floors, lots of natural pine throughout the main living area, and a private, forested setting, the home has the feel of an airy, rustic woodland lodge.

Take in views of bucolic Lake Lytle from the home's wide, inviting front porch. Inside the house, enjoy more lake views through the wall of windows spanning the front of the home. Relax in the cozy living room, with its flatscreen TV equipped with a DVD player, DirecTV, and WiFi.

Even the charming cottage kitchen has lake views, and is fully equipped for all your cooking needs. Diners can belly up to the kitchen bar on one of four stools, have a seat near the windows in the darling dining area with room for six, or sit outdoors on the covered front porch, which boasts a nice table and chairs for four and a gas barbecue for grilling.

With two bedrooms (offering a king-size bed, a queen-size bed, and twin bunks), a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room, and one bathroom, this home is ideal for a max occupancy of eight guests (six adults). Pets aren't allowed, but bring the kids! A Pack 'n Play is provided for little ones, along with a selection of games for the whole family.

The bedrooms are nicely decorated in cottage style with quilts, soothing wall colors, and private, forested window views. The bathroom features a full tub and shower. A washer and dryer in the home means you can easily dry wet clothes after a day on the lake or at the beach.

Bring your kayak, canoe or paddle board and hit the lake. And don't forget your fishing pole or your swimsuit. Two beach chairs are provided. In addition to the lake, beachcombers will appreciate the short walk to the ocean, golfers will like the proximity to Tillamook's Alderwood Golf Course just a 20-minute drive away and boarders can enjoy great surf from several nearby beaches.

No matter how you choose to spend your Rockaway Beach vacation, this Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental is sure to please the whole family, or a group of friends with diverse interests...or a shared goal to kick back and relax.

My wife and I stayed here for the weekend and enjoyed the house. We like the furnishings and its location close to eateries and the beach.
Bryan I. Aug 2018
this house was perfect and had everything my family and I needed for our Oregon coastal trip. We enjoyed fires in the wood-burning stove and a literally three minute walk to the beach in the evenings. It was such a beautiful home and a beautiful setting that the lady of the house shed some tears when we had to leave LOL. This was the first time I've been able to set up a family vacation like this and because of this house it was all too perfect.
Bobbie L. Aug 2018
Loved staying at Ara Vista in Rockaway Beach. I was perfect. I will definitely rent this home again for our next visit.
It was exactly as advertised.
Lydia B. Aug 2018
This house was very cozy and charming. It had everything we needed/wanted. It truly made our first family vacation to the Oregon Coast perfect! We will be back for sure.
mary kelly r. May 2018
This home is cozy and relaxing with a beautiful view of the lake. The beach is a 4 minute walk away and you are so close to town. We love it here and have been back multiple times!
Paul & Jackie T. Apr 2018
We enjoyed our stay! Nice views, comfy and cosy cottage feel and enjoyed steaks on the grill one night.
Michael O. Mar 2018
It was so peaceful and had everything we needed!
Katherine R. Jan 2018
We arrived in the evening during a rainstorm and the house was freezing when we walked in. The wall heaters were not enough to heat the house and there was no wood - which was suprising considering the wood stove is a primary source of heat. We drove to a local store and bought wood, but it was stored outside and due to the rain it was quite wet and took awhile to burn. Everything else was perfect and we had a fabulous stay, but having some stocked wood to get the house nice and toasty sooner, would bump this home up to a perfect 10!
Tracey S. Dec 2017
We rented this home and surftide #4899 for an amazing family get together. The town was great all decked out for the holidays, and the beach and lake were surprisingly secluded for a long holiday weekend. We can't wait to come again when it's a bit warmer. Happy New Year !
Steve R. Nov 2017
This place is absolutely beautiful. Amazing windows that look over the lake, cozy wood burning stove, kitchen stocked with everything that is needed, comfy beds. We had a wonderful stay and we will definitely go back again!
Riley T. Oct 2017
My husband and I rented this home for our first anniversary. We were extremely pleased with the cost and location. It’s just off the Main Street, right across from Lake Lytle with a stunning view. The beach is within walking distance and there are tons of places to eat around town. There are also nearby towns within a quick driving distance with other activities and sights to see. There is plenty of board games at the home and even a kayak to use at the lake!
David J. Oct 2017
The property is very conveniently located near the beach and is right across from a lake called Lake Lytle. Waking up in the morning and seeing the fog roll over the lake was extremely beautiful. The proximity to the ocean mean that my wife and I could walk to the ocean and see the sunset in less than 5 minutes. The condition of the property was also excellent. Tons of clean towels, clean dishes and silverware, and lots of amenities. There were also 3 propane tanks for the bbq which was a huge nicety. Kitchen was a great size. Chairs were comfortable for reading.

CONS: the road in front of the house was more problematic than we thought it would be. There is a lower income area past the house and lots of lifted trucks and cars driving fast in front of the house. It really did take me out of relaxation mode everytime someone drove by. I also did not feel completely safe in Rockaway beach. There were lots of houses that were run down and generally in disrepair.
Dannillya S. Sep 2017
The house is only a couple of blocks from the beach, get the sound of the ocean without the sand. The house was great, comfy and perfect location. Sitting on the porch in the morning, afternoon or evening we had a great view of the lake. Only thing I would like to point out is the road is between the house and the lake and there is a bit of traffic along the road. We will most definitely be willing to rent this house again for any future trips to Rockaway Beach.
Jennifer W. Sep 2017
Great house! Amazing view! Wonderful proximity to the beach and the rest of Rockaway. Everything was clean, comfortable, well appointed, and easy to use, with lots of extras if you have kids (small life vests, games, books, movies, etc). Down side: the "fees" are already high and there are also hidden fees that you will be charges after the fact. Be sure to inquire first or be prepared for an extra $40+ to show up on your credit card.
JERRY B. Sep 2017
The house was great for my girlfriend and I this past week. We were looking for peace and quiet near some water and found exactly that with this place! Its nice because it sits next to lake Lytle and is a 5 min walk to the beach, really convenient. Thanks!
Michael H. Aug 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable cabin close to beach and town and will most likely stay again. Nice large dining table on the porch. The outdoor living space was just as enjoyable as indoor. Nice memory foam mattresses on the bunk beds kept the kids cozy. Full size master bedroom was tastefully decorated. The kids enjoyed the kayak in the lake. Hot dogs on the barbecue and full kitchen and dishes for delightful meals just like home. Not a big selection of DVDs so you'll want to bring your own. Wifi worked great.
Norm R. Aug 2017
Great view of lake Lytle. Was really relaxing to be out of the wind. Very short stroll to the beach. Very quiet.
Mary Kelly R. Jul 2017
This home has huge beautiful windows giving you a gorgeous view of the Lake. It is so peaceful and calm, one simply would never want to leave. The kayak provided by the owner is amazing on the lake - so easy and fast to put in the water. The beach is so close along with the charming town of Rock Away. I love this place and will definitely go back.
Kerri H. Jul 2017
This is such a cute little place. Quick walk to the beach and a great view of the lake.
Kevin S. Jul 2017
It is a great location. Not as windy as beachfront. Yet a close walk.
Kary S. Jul 2017
We really liked our stay at this cabin.. We thought the beds where very nice. The cabin is well decorated , very clean and comfortable. The internet worked well . We could stream movies on the flat screen . The location is great. We will be back.
Jessica S. May 2017
We loved our stay at Ara Vista. It feels like a mountain lake cabin mixed with a beach cottage. My 2 toddlers and my parents all stayed here for a few days and felt right at home. It is decorated really cute and the beds are very comfortable. We are already talking about booking this place again.
Maribel Y. May 2017
My family stayed for two night the view of the lake was absolutely beautiful the house was very cozy beds were very comfortable I would definitely stay here again
Brian D. Apr 2017
The house was a perfect size for our family. The bunk beds were perfect for Griffin (6) & Phoenix (4). Had the essentials including games, puzzles and even Netflix when nighttime came. We rented a boat at the marina just north of town and went crabbing, also fished right of the peir across the street at the lake. Beautiful view of the lake right out the window. Clean and cozy!
Angela D. Apr 2017
thank you!!!
Courtney K. Mar 2017
We loved our weekend getaway to this adorable lake-side cottage. The cottage is immaculate, quaint, kid-friendly and the perfect size for my family of 5. We loved building a fire in the wood stove and looking out on Lake Lytle, hitting the beach which is just a few minutes away, and heading into the cute town for lunch. We will definitely be back!
Steven W. Mar 2017
clean and comfortable
Rachel P. Sep 2016
We spent 3 nights at Ara Vista and it was perfect! The location is super close to the town of Rockaway Beach and a short walk to the beach area. The lake across the street makes for a very pretty view.

We would absolutely recommend this house...it has all the amenities you need and the fireplace is great!
Patrick M. Sep 2016
My family had a wonderful few days here--especially appreciated all the family-friendly touches. Rockaway Beach town center is just a two minute drive away and the beach is right across 101. Crossing the highway was usually fine but be aware that during busy times you may wait a while. Something to consider if you have several young children in tow (we had one 4-year old and were OK).
Jill B. Sep 2016
The house was well equipped which made us glad we had packed light and offered a perfect cozy environment for us to relax. We had a wonderful time staying at the house with our three young sons and enjoyed being close to so many great excursions in the area (hiking, rail riding, steam train rides, fishing, kayaking, playing at the beach). The view of the lake was wonderful and the boys loved going out in the kayak as well.
MaryAnn D. Aug 2016
Well appointed and a great location near the lake and ocean!
Jana S. Aug 2016
Perfect getaway to relax. The lake view is beautiful and the property is private and quiet. It's very close walk to the beach for walks and amazing sunsets. And close to many places to explore. Our whole family enjoyed our stay.
Carly N. Aug 2016
It was very cozy. We had a great time!
John G. Aug 2016
Very nice, was perfect for the 8 of us, the grandkids loved the lake and the beach.
Mandy L. Jul 2016
The location of the house enabled us to explore the coastal towns that we wanted to visit easily. The beach is a beautiful beach. The wild blackberries were delicious. The views of the lake and the ocean from this location were amazing! We had such a great vacation. The kids loved it as well, and can't wait to return!
Bethany F. Jul 2016
We had a great stay here, very clean and cute, however the previous renters had a bunch of trash that sat in the front yard throughout our stay. Would have been nice for Vacasa to have called for an extra garbage pick-up so that we didn't have to watch the trash blow around all weekend.
Laura E. Jul 2016
Great location, short walk to the beach, cool little down town, great house layout
Joseph K. Jun 2016
The best endorsement is that we will definitely rent this home again! Fabulous location. Quiet area. Central locale.
Anna P. Jun 2016
We stayed in the house for 2 nights. Place is very neat, clean with beautiful view on a local lake. All equipment is in a good working conditions. House is about 5 minutes from the beach area. We really like our stay there and looking forward to come back.
Mary K. May 2016
Loved the rustic floors and the grand kids loved the "up & down" beds! Until bedtime came of course! I very much liked the wood stove. We brought wood as the forecast was cool and rainy, but we made it down to the beach to play each day! In the evening we had a nice fire and watched Disney movies. Oh and the kids thought the red tub was cool!
Lissa Z. May 2016
Cozy, private, convenient. Lots of traffic however, only street with access to planned community down the road
Cheryl W. May 2016
Nice place close to the beach
Josh D. Apr 2016
Very comfortable and a great location. Everything was very clean and the house was very tastefully decorated. The kitchen is very well equipped! From the ice cream scoop to the turkey roaster - all good. Thank you!
Kelly M. Mar 2016
WE have stayed many times at different places on the coast and this little place was really great. It is very homey and cozy. We will try to stay here again in the future. Thanks again Vacasa for assisting us with a stellar and relaxing vacation.
Sheila C. Mar 2016
We liked ara vista overall. We had an uncontrollable situation on our full day thete, a really loud ski boater that was ruining the lake for everyone else no fishing could really be done. For anyone in a mile radius for many hours in the afternoon we got to try to tune out the uproar. The rain that came in was a blessing as it made the guy pack up for the day. Glad he had fun.... We also wondered about the traffic that goes by the cabin it was noisy too. It's a great location for boaters so close to the public dock. Thank you we liked it mostly we might come back.
Alissa M. Mar 2016
The house was great. Clean, spacious, and basic amenities are all taken care of. The bunk beds are good for kids, but a regular bed in the second bedroom would be better. Beautiful picture windows overlooking the lake, and a great deck to relax on. I'd definitely stay again.
Omar M. Feb 2016
quiet and nice.
JOHN H. Feb 2016
We stayed for a week in February and this rental worked out well. It has a nice view of Lake Lytell and we saw eagles fishing in the lake. It is a short walk to the beach but you have to cross the highway.
If you are renting when the weather is cold, definitely buy some firewood before you arrive. The heater in the main room struggles to keep that part of the house warm if the outside temp drops into the low 40's but the wood stove is more than sufficient to heat the place. You can purchase firewood at any grocery store in the area.
The beds were comfortable and the house is well equipped. A kayak was provided but the weather was never good enough to use it while we were there.
Lyla H. Nov 2015
Cute rental home that was just the right for a friend and I to reconnect and have some downtime. Great atmosphere, quiet and plenty of entertainment amenities in the home. Very stormy on our weekend but nice and cozy inside.
Linda G. Oct 2015
A very nice, quiet, relaxing place. Beds were very comfortable and the home was stocked with everything we needed. Happy to have found it on vrbo.
Cindy A. Sep 2015
We had a very relaxing stay here for 3 days. The kitchen was well equipped. The road in front of the house was quite busy at times but didn't effect our stay. If you are taller than 6 foot 4 inches you will not be able to stand up in the shower. That was the only negative.
Sheetal K. Aug 2015
Long awaited review that i had to write. We stayed there in July for week. Very well managed and relaxing , can call it a home away from home. Everything that we needed was there. Comfortable beds, kitchen with every essentials that you would need to feel like home, beautifully decorated rooms, games for kids, serene view of the lake from the deck, few blocks away from beaches...you name it. We loved our stay for all the reasons above and more. Would definitely recommend and come back here when we would like to visit the pacific coast:)
Stefan L. Jul 2015
Our family enjoyed a great week at this cute and comfortable home. A stone's throw from the beach, with a lovely view of Lake Lytle. Wish we had brought a canoe or kayaks! The house is quiet, well-appointed and outfitted, and very relaxing. We would definitely return -- there is so much to explore nearby. Thank you for a lovely one week reprieve from life's craziness!!
Kolynn W. Jun 2015
Perfect little spot for some much needed rest and relaxation. Loved the view every morning while drinking coffee out on the deck and your only 3 blocks from the beach! Very quiet and peaceful and we had incredible weather.
Angela A. May 2015
A perfect place to enjoy the view, spend the morning drinking coffee and count the ducks as they fly by. We loved the cozy, clean interior and time to snuggle up and watch movies with the kids. I was a short walk to the beach to play in the sand. We look forward to our return!
Alyca A. Apr 2015
Cute house right on Lake Lytle
Amy M. Apr 2015
Loved this house. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Beautiful view & not far from beach or town. Had all the stuff we needed for our daughter as well.
Manager response:
Thank you for the positive review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Chelsie W. Apr 2015
This house was perfect! It's cozy & felt like home. It had everything we needed for our 3 days there. The deck was perfect for a BBQ and the view of the lake every morning was breath taking. This was our first trip to the coast and we will be back! There was nothing that we didn't like about the house. We will be back! 😃😃😃
Tami H. Mar 2015
We had a great time. We were happy that the place looked just like the pictures. What a great view of the lake and it was close to the beach. The beds were comfortable and it was easy to feel at home. We look forward to coming back again in the future and would recommend this vacation home to our friends.

Jeniffer C. Mar 2015
Great place to stay. Quiet with an unobstructed view of the lake and a boat dock close by. Beach access is a short drive down the road. Very kid friendly with games, books, puzzles and even a few kid movies for entertainment. Really need to check out the secret treasures behind the locked door.
Manager response:
Thank you for posting such a great review! We are happy you enjoyed the home and it's amazing lake view. We hope you'll be back soon!
Lauren J. Jan 2015
My husband and I stayed at Ara Vista for two nights with our four month old and found the space perfect, especially for parents with young kids. The pack n play and kid dishes meant we could schlep less and enjoy the trip more. The two bedrooms and ample living space allowed us to spread out all of our baby gear without feeling cramped, and ensured we could get a good night sleep with the baby close by. The house is kid friendly but very tastefully decorated so any group would feel at home. The pictures show the lovely lake view but don't show how easy it is to get yo the beach- we were a five minute walk to a huge sandy stretch of the coast. I'd never been to Rockaway Beach before- it was a classic small town which felt pleasantly low key, but was also an easy drive to Manzanita and to Pacific City when we wanted a side trip. If you're looking for a less touristy, family friendly getaway, this is a great choice.
