Private, quiet, dog-friendly home with firepit, 1/4 mile from Heceta Beach

Find the utmost in privacy as well as convenience at this tree-lined home in Florence, ideally situated within a short stroll of Heceta Beach.

This two-story home sits a quarter-mile from an access path to a peaceful stretch of Heceta Beach, a wonderful, tranquil spot for boogie boarding and beachcombing. The property itself is quiet, surrounded by beautiful coastal vegetation, and securely fenced for your dogs. In the surrounding area, you'll have great options for crabbing, fishing, hiking, and visiting such Oregon Coast landmarks as the Sea Lion Caves and Heceta Head Lighthouse.

Walk home from the beach in the afternoons to let your dogs play on the pebbly grounds, relax outside on the small front porch, or gather around the firepit to swap stories and ease the chill of the ocean waves.

The home's interior is bright, open, and inviting. Get started on dinner in the well-equipped kitchen, sit down to eat at the two breakfast bars, and spend the evening hours watching DVDs from the movie library and playing board games in the living room.

This home was absolutley fantastic! It was the perfect size, with enough space for a small group, but cozy enough to enjoy a epic thunderstorm with a glass of wine. The gate gives you a great sense of privacy. You are a short walk to the beach, and a minute drive to the local pub for drinks and freindly locals. My husband and I drove from SLC to renew our vows on our 10 year anniversary. Your home was the pefect choice. The kitchen is well equipped, the bed was comfortable and the fire pit was enjoyable. The home also had a MASSIVE dvd library. The only slight drawback is the address is hard to see in the dark, maybe some reflective tape will be helpful. Otherwise a wonderful stay. We will absolutly come back again, only with our dogs!

The Fortress is a nice little place. Very clean, Comfortable, dog friendly, and close to lots of fun things to do. It had all the things we needed from kitchen items to crabbing gear. The securely fenced yard provides privacy and a safe place for the dog. As someone who often travels with my dog, I found this to be the most dog friendly vacation rental I’ve ever stayed in.

We loved the tall completely fenced yard and all the puppy amenities! There is a fire pit and crab pots. It was just minutes away from the Suislaw River where we love to kayak as well! Immaculate house with three king beds (2 bdrm) and beautiful ocean life decor!

We really enjoyed our stay here , I have two kids and two dogs and it was perfect for the beach , a two min walk and we was on heceeta beach , having the yard fully enclosed with a fence meant I could relax knowing my kids and dogs couldn’t escape . The house was lovely , clean and inviting . Got good use out of the fire pit , made s’mores which the kids love . All round perfect few days . Thank you . Oh and Florence old twin was wonderful and we visited the sea lion cave s as well which was super cool
