Dog-Friendly Home with Siuslaw River Views, Fireplace, WiFi - Near Beach & Town!

Oregon Coast adventures begin at this comfortable, light-filled home on the Siuslaw River just outside downtown Florence. This home is a quick drive from the open ocean beach, mere minutes from the heart of town, and across the road from Prichard State Wayside - the smallest state park in all of Oregon.

This two-level home is roomy and bright, with soft carpeting, large picture windows, and river views greeting you as you enter. There's a window seat where you can curl up with a good book in the mornings and a wood-burning fireplace and a flatscreen cable TV to keep things cozy at night. Moving into the kitchen, you'll find a wealth of cabinet storage, a breakfast bar for three, and an eat-in dining table by the window. A gas grill, a grassy lawn, and an outdoor patio with picnic tables and a firepit make it easy to dine al fresco in the cool ocean breeze as well.

At night, you'll have your choice of one bedroom on the main floor and two bedrooms - including one with a river view - upstairs. Additional amenities include a private laundry room and free high-speed WiFi throughout the house.

This was an amazing spacious house for my family and so close to the Florence dunes which was a plus. Not to mention had enough space to park our trailer
Grant B. Nov 2022
The house was well stocked and quite cozy, and would have been a great place to relax by the coast if it weren’t for undrinkable, visibly yellow, foul smelling tap water. All the faucets produced water the color of dehydrated urine with a foul chemical/metallic odor. Skin burned slightly after showering in it. Vacasa customer service repeatedly promised prompt remediation, but I have yet to hear anything back from them. Until the water issue is fixed, I would strongly urge you to avoid this property, or come prepared with ample bottled water to drink and cook with.
Manager response:
Hi, Grant! This home is on a well that has water high in iron content. It has been confirmed as potable. We apologize if the color and odor are off-putting. Hopefully we get to host you again now that you better know what to expect. Thanks!

This house was very cozy, great parking, surprisingly roomy. Will recommend to friends for sure.
Kayla T. Sep 2022
We enjoyed our stay and the house was very conveniently located. Very nice for pets as well as there is a large yard. The house wasn’t as clean as I would have liked and the water smells like rotten eggs. I wouldn’t recommend drinking it. Otherwise it was great!
Manager response:

Please know that local staff is available to assist with any cleanliness issues you encounter while in the home.

The house is super cute!! Our family had a great time!
Marilyn L. Aug 2022
Our family of 8 was very comfortable here. The home was very clean and well maintained. It is situated on a quiet corner over looking the river, just a stone's throw away from old town Florence. The tap water is a bit off-color but there is a filter spigot for drinking water. Overall very acceptable.

Our stay was overall okay. The house is clean and comfortable in general, with a nice view. The kitchen is stocked well for cooking equipment, etc. There are some low ceilings that should be noted for the taller guests, and it appears that there may be some illegal activity taking place in the tiny park directly across the street from the house at very late hours, although this didn't impact us other than wondering if something more problematic were possible.

Our main issue leading to a lower rating was that one night around midnight my brother who is traveling with us encountered a small BAT in his upstairs bedroom. After isolating the critter, he was eventually able to get a screen off the small window, catch the bat in a towel, and release it outside. Neither he nor the bat was harmed. We only had screened windows open in the house, so the only entry for the bat could have been from the attic. I found a small area in the upstairs closet where it possibly crawled through, and put a folded paper towel in it to prevent further intrusions. I love bats, but not in the house. There can be numerous health issues.

Once we notified Vacasa, the management agency in charge of this property, of the issue so they could eventually take action to remove any other bats that may be in the attic, we heard absolutely zero from them, except the auto messages regarding checkout and rating our stay. I sent the message to them at two different times via two different email methods, and still nothing. I've waited an additional 2 weeks for a response before posting this review, but have received nothing even acknowledging our issue. I'm glad it wasn't something more serious.
Manager response:
We apologize for any disconnect or miscommunication in the care you received when communicating with our team, as this is not the high level of customer care we strive to provide. We will follow up with our team regarding your experience and will use this feedback as we grow as a company to better serve our guests.

This house is conveniently located close to everything Florence has to offer! We've made a tradition to go stay a week every summer, to ride ATVs on the dunes at TOREX rentals for a few days in a row. The house was a 5 min drive from torex, and located on a dead end street and a not super busy street, on a corner lot. Our dog was very comfortable, too.
The only thing that I can even say negative is the water pressure was awful, but you know, not a deal breaker as we've stayed in much tougher conditions before!
Would definitely stay here again, lots of boardgames for the family, a few toys for the kids like a nice big selection of Lincoln logs!

Love the view from the dining table!
Richard S. May 2022
The overall experience was great. The house was comfortable however, a couple notable safety issues and concerns. One was the bathroom had moving stairs which was a huge safety issue. Especially with my mother and her age. I doubt it is within OSHA regulation. One bed upstairs was so old that it was sunk in the center. The trash can is understandable to be smelly. However, it smelt as if someone left raw fish in it for a long period of time.

The view was amazing, the house was comfortable and was 100% set up for an enjoyable weekend.
Manager response:
Richard, thank you for your feedback, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed the home's amazing view during your visit.

Lovely place in a quiet location with enough room to spread out. Very clean and comfortable beds.
Nicole C. Dec 2021
Great location close to town and recreation! Well stocked. House could have been cleaner. Upstairs bed is worn out. Be prepared to buy drinking water as the water is discolored and contains a lot of iron - my dogs even turned their nose up at it!
Manager response:
Hi, Nicole! Thank you for choosing to leave your review. It's always helpful to hear directly from our guests. We apologize it wasn't as clean as it should have been and will look into this. The water has been treated and is safe to drink and cook with. We hope to see you again someday!
Michele G. Sep 2021
Overall really enjoyed this home. Very roomy and comfortable - great views of the Siuslaw River and many kinds of birds throughout the day. Home is just over the bridge to Old Town Florence (restaurants, coffee, shopping, harbor) and super close to beaches and coastal activities.

Also a fun side benefit of staying in early fall - there were fresh apples coming off the 2 apple trees in the yard plus lots of ripe blackberries along the yard borders - both very yummy!

Marla I. Aug 2021
This was the perfect home for our family and dog! It's a lovely home, very comfortable and sparkly clean. The kitchen is well stocked which is great for any group who loves to cook! The view of the river and old town across the way is beautiful. We walked across the bridge for coffee in the mornings, and it's a short drive to many beach/lake/hiking/etc. activities. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in Florence.
