Mapleton is a small town tucked away on the Siuslaw River and surrounded by the serene forest. Come stay in one of our Mapleton rentals and experience for yourself the charms of this lovely area.
This wonderful community is about an hour directly west of Eugene, and just 15 minutes from charming Florence. Mapleton is situated about 15 miles inland from the ocean, so guests of our Mapleton rentals can easily drive over to Highway 101 and drive north to visit the uncrowded beaches of Yachats or south to Waldport or south to Reedsport and North Bend to explore the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.
The most popular restaurant in the area, Pop's Smokehouse (formerly Gingerbread Village), is perched right on the edge of town. Go there for some fish and chips, a pulled-pork sandwich, or a burger, and don't forget to order some gingerbread for dessert! In Mapleton you will find a couple other eateries (including the wonderful Caffeination Station coffee shop), a market, and a hardware store. With Florence so close, you can easily drive into the larger town to stock up on groceries, visit the casino, grab a meal at one of the many restaurants, or go to the beach. Just south of Mapleton about ten miles is the Sweet Creek Falls Trail, where you can hike the short trails that pass through the shaded forest. Walk along the gentle paths and admire the ferns and pine trees, watch for wildlife, and gaze at the small waterfalls. The Siuslaw River passes right through Mapleton, and it is an excellent place to go fishing or boating. And of course, if you drive closer to Florence you can go clamming during low tide or crabbing from the boardwalk in town. Mapleton is a small, quiet town surrounded by the beauty of nature, yet still within an easy drive of larger cities such as Florence and Eugene. When you stay in one of our Mapleton rentals you will never be far from excitement!
