Vacasa's growing selection of Brookings, Oregon vacation rentals are ideally-situated to make the most of your getaway to the wild and scenic Southern Oregon Coast! This unique community is sometimes refereed to as "Oregon's Banana Belt," for its year-round sunny and warm weather - in fact, summer days in the 80's are not uncommon here. Just 30 miles to the south of Gold Beach and about seven miles from the California state line, Brookings offers gorgeous warm days and cooler nights for watching the stars from the beach or even roasting marshmallows around your Brookings beach cottage's backyard fire pit.
And while the beach, Macklyn Cove, and numerous tide pools at Harris Beach State Park are a huge draw to this magical Oregon Coast spot, Brookings is much more than just sand, surf, and starfish (although there is plenty of those)! There's a botanical garden to explore, the Oregon Redwoods Trail for glimpses of these historic, giant trees, and at the Port of Brookings Harbor you can have access to public boat ramps for a day out on the water, fishing for dinner. This harbor is known for its access to both the Pacific Ocean and Chetco River for Chinook salmon, as well as deep water steelhead, ling cod, and Dungeness crab.
What else can you do when you leave your Brookings beach cottage for the day? Well, golfers will want to schedule time at the Salmon Run Golf Course and for water sports enthusiasts, Sporthaven Beach is known for great surfing and body boarding. And in summer, the water is warm enough that you will probably not even need a wetsuit. From one of our Brookings, Oregon vacation rentals, you can also head to Sporthaven Beach to do a little whale watching in winter and spring. Brookings is also home to a popular Artisan Market on Saturdays (May - October), the Azalea Festival Memorial Day weekend, a Farmers Market (June - October), the Southern Oregon Kite Festival in July, and a large Art Festival in August.
But really, there is no bad time to visit this charming, ocean-side Oregon town! Pick one of our Brookings, Oregon vacation rentals for a comfortable and well-stocked home base while you explore the beautiful Southern Oregon Coast. Just be sure to bring your sunscreen, your beach toys...and your sense of adventure!
