Make Depoe Bay your next getaway

For a small town, Depoe Bay certainly has a mighty big reputation. This little village has become known as the "Whale Watching Capital of the Oregon Coast", and indeed, it draws a large number of visitors during peak weeks to the state's official Whale Watching Center downtown. An Oregon Coast vacation rental in Depoe Bay is still certainly quieter than Lincoln City to the north and Newport to the south, but thanks to its whale-watching fame, has more dining and shopping options available than many similarly-sized coast towns.

Recent Depoe Bay vacation rental reviews

The space is very spacious and is perfect for a big group. Plenty of appliances and extra bedding materials, also very fun to play a lot of things here such as fuseball, ping pong, and pool. There is also a little fire pit out front and a hot tub. The only maybe downside to this place is that it can get very loud and the rooms downstairs can hear everything such as steps and stuff from the upstairs. Aside from that the place itself was amazing would highly recommend for a big group or people who want a lot of space to themselves.

It was a great time, the house is very nice and comfortable with everything you need, impeccable cleanliness and the place is quiet and with a nice view of the sea. I would return without thinking... Thank you for such a good experience.

We enjoyed our stay so much in this charming 80 years old home. The view of the ocean from the living room and all the bedrooms were spectacular! What a treat to wake up and your first site is the ocean and hearing the crashing waves. The home was well stocked with everything we needed and then some. Because it is a pet friendly home there’s remnants of urine smell in the closet of the downstairs bedroom. The bedspreads and linens could use a refresh as it was worn out and musty. The place was quite clean though and we appreciated the binder full of detailed instructions about the tv, fireplace, and even menus of restaurants nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

In addition to her whale watching status, the town is also home to the world's smallest (and very photogenic) navigable harbor, underwater geyser-like basalt formations that spout water dozens of feet into the air, and a veritable fleet of charter boats from operators like Dockside Charters, ready to whisk curious visitors out on deep-sea fishing adventures and sightseeing tours.

After having their fill of whale-watching, visitors could spend days exploring the scenic picnic spots, sandy beaches, and hidden coves located just outside Depoe Bay. South of town, the winding Otter Crest Loop guides drivers past jaw-dropping views and state recreation sites at Fogarty Creek, Boiler Bay, Rocky Creek, and Otter Crest, with its cheerfully named Cape Foulweather.

And while a Depoe Bay vacation rental offers all the usual suspects in the way of local businesses (saltwater taffy, art galleries, and souvenir shops), there are definitely some better-than-average restaurant options in town, along with the award-winning Pirate Coffee Company. If you don't feel like preparing meals in your beach cottage's full kitchen, lucky diners can choose from four-star farm-to-table cuisine at Restaurant Beck, the insanely popular seafood spot Tidal Raves, or the Friday night seafood buffet at The Sea Hag, just to name a few.

Depoe Bay is an excellent choice for visitors wanting to explore the busier, more bustling destinations of Newport and Lincoln City while still experiencing the charm and laid-back atmosphere of a smaller home base. Newport's famous aquarium, historic waterfront, and Rogue Brewing are only 20 minutes south; to the north, Lincoln City offers miles of sandy beaches, a lively nightlife scene, an outlet mall, and a casino. Portland can be reached in just under two and a half hours, while Salem and Corvallis are an hour and a half away.

Don't overlook a Depoe Bay vacation rental; this little coastal town packs a big punch.
