Make Depoe Bay your next getaway—choose from 26 great vacation rentals

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

My daughter and I decided to go to the beach to celebrate her graduation. When we arrived, we were more than a little hesitant because the scent of the house was a little strong (just old house smell. It’s a very clean place), and the house instructions informed us we could not change the heating temperature in the house even though it was cold. By the end of our trip, I will say those issues didn’t matter at all. We adapted to the scent so quickly, it was as if it didn’t exist. As for the cold issue, there are stand alone heaters throughout the house and instructions on how to use them. The fake fireplace was not only beautiful, but it produced a lot of heat over time. And my daughter turned on the bedroom heater and it worked well. We’ve been to a lot of place while traveling and we found the furniture at the Depoe Bay house to be incredibly comfortable. More so than in the more expensive places we’ve stayed. From the deck we watched the most amazing sunsets. And because of the location, we walked to Restaurants, to food, and along the shore. We saw the bay, a beautiful black sand beach, and an inlet where a giant rock island was covered in common Murres, which look, sound, and smell like penguins! All of these things are within an easy mile walk. I would recommend this place to everyone. After staying there, I left believing there was only one downside. The tv had a lot of difficulty with Netflix in the evening when we were relaxing. However, we brought our laptops and were able to stream Netflix with no problem. We did bring. DVDs for this scenario, but the player wasn’t available for this trip. That’s fine as our laptops worked well. This place is a definite gem and I’d return in a heartbeat.

We loved staying in the house! It was big, lean, well stocked, and a good location! If we go back to Depoe Bay, we will try to stay here again!

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.
