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

This home sets the stage for an amazing visit, from the moment you open the front door to cooking dinner the views are amazing. The home was fully stocked with everything you need to enjoy your stay.

This property is quite amazing. Great view and ambience. Clean , bright and welcoming. There is no doubt that we will be back - perhaps for the next King Tides. Thank you.

We stayed at this property over New Years 2021-22 for six days. The home itself is spacious, comfortable, and very well designed. The view (to the west and the south) is breathtaking. While the property fronts on a local highway, the sound of the waves drowns out most traffic noises - it was never an issue for us. Very good to excellent restaurants are within walking distance or a short drive north or south. The walking opportunities in the area are also excellent. The only issue we had with our stay was difficulty figuring out how the fireplace and wall-mounted heaters worked - we lost the fireplace on the fourth day (perhaps some kind of safety lock-out "feature"?) which was a shame as it's a nice fireplace. We hope to return in the future to enjoy the view, the sound of the waves, and the nearby walks.

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.
