About Jan and Ace Hickman
We came to North Bend in 2001 to take care of Jan's parents for the last 6 years of their lives. We now own and live in the home they built in the 70's (finished in 1973). The guest house is the cottage we are offering to travelers who are coming to the Oregon Coast and is where we lived for the 6 years we took care of the folks. Jan grew up here, having graduated from North Bend High School in 1969... so we are pretty knowledgeable about the area and what to do and see while you are here. Ace is from the East Coast and is currently restoring the main house on the property.
Jan and Ace Hickman purchased this House in 2007
Why Jan and Ace Hickman chose North Bend
We are the second generation to own this property. It was designed and built by Jan's parents. They sat on a stump of a tree overlooking the bay and drew out the plans for their dream home to retire in placing every thought into maximizing the view. They built the cottage first and lived in it while building the main house. After that the "guest house" welcomed travelers from all over the world... even an occasional hitch-hiker was invited to stay back in the 1970's and 1980's. We have a history of old guest books with entries written in many different languages.
What makes this House unique
Cozy and warm with awesome views of the bay and North Bend across the bay. The 10' x 24' deck on the back is the perfect retreat in summer as it is protected from the wind and gets very warm and sunny. A short drive to beaches and sand dunes, and if you love to browse vintage shops we have some great ones in our little town! For those who are not so familiar with the pacific northwest, I would like to let you know that the best weather for our summer season runs from about mid-July through late September... sometimes even into October.

Perfect and Per Site Pictures
Everything was perfect about this property. It presented exactly like the pictures. It was clean, cozy and very comfortable bed.
Owners were very welcoming and accommodating.
Cozy little dream cottage
Everything about this place was wonderful! Jan and Ace are the nicest people you could ever meet, and the cottage was warm and inviting and comfortable. There were delicious muffins waiting for me in the kitchenette when I arrived, and the view was spectacular. I'm definitely renting this cottage again when I come back to North Bend to visit my friends!
Had a wonderful short stay at the North Bend cottage. The property was beautifully maintained and everything was perfect. We got to meet the owners Jan and Ace and they were friendly and accommodating. The cottage had everything we needed and very charming. Flowers everywhere and my favorite, hummingbirds. We had cupcakes waiting for us when we arrived which was a very nice touch. Everything about it was perfect and we would very much like to come back for another stay.
It was a sweet joy to meet you both and we hope you come back!
I guess I shouldn't go on about the flowers on the property first, because the hosts couldn't have been nicer than they are. The cottage is as cute as can be, and everything was spotless, bright, and the view is unbelievable. But the flowers! I love plants, so every chance I got I was outside looking at all of Jan's flowers. The cottage is private and we used it for 2 days as we checked out the area on this portion of our vacation. North Bend and Coos Bay are both great areas to check out. You will absolutely not be disappointed if you choose this cottage for your stay. Jan and Ace are excellent hosts.
Wonderful hosts, beautifully maintained property, terrific flowers. The unit contained everything we needed for a long-term stay. Best place ever, and Jan and Ace were very helpful and accommodating to our every need. Couldn't ask for better hosts or a nicer place. Highly recommended for short or long stay.
Jan and Ace are wonderful hosts. On our 2 day visit to North Bend, they treated us as friends. The cottage itself was as described on VRBO. It was very clean and supplied with the essentials we needed. The view of the bay is beautiful, and it’s just a few minute drive to the 101. We’d definitely stay there again.
