Quiet Coastal Retreat near Neskowin

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 9 Sleeps

3 night minimum please.

Please contact us before online booking. We recommend not paying with a credit card. Homeaway rates are ridiculously high. Our house is unique. The Quiet Coastal Retreat at Cascade Head is a spacious house located only steps from the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology at the base of the Head. (It is not actually in Neskowin, but this website does not allow any other geographic options for the listing; it is actually 3 miles south of Neskowin.) Its proximity to a vast Nature Conservancy preserve ensures a peaceful stay amongst wildlife that includes deer, elk, rabbits, porcupines and bald eagles. Guests will enjoy a pristine ocean view, miles of hiking trails, access to a community Riverhouse with a swimming pool (June-Sept), and boat launch, plus your choice of nearby beaches. The Cascade Head community sits at the last bend of the Salmon River estuary, an ideal spot for crabbing and fishing. Across the river is Three Rocks Beach, one of the coast’s hidden gems, as there are seldom more than a handful of people on it. WE NOW HAVE WIFI at the community Riverhouse. Renters will be given Wi-Fi passcode. Please note we will not be listing this home on homeaway/vacationrentals in 2018 as their rates have doubled, the features are onerous, they keep dropping our listing, and of course the ridiculous credit card rates. Look for the same title "Quiet Coastal Retreat near Neskowin" on airbnb next year.

About Paul Folkestad

This home was built by our family in 1983. Designed for use by families.

Why Paul Folkestad chose Otis

We love Cascade Head because it combines the beach with wilderness and gives us so many options for fun. We are disappointed with the service we now receive from after being a listing customer for 8 years. We will list on airbnb next year under the same title.

What makes this house unique

Riverhouse, community pool, hot tub, hiking trails, boating, fishing, kayaking, crabbing and more.

Please contact us before booking so you understand this unique setting. The Cascade Head experience is for those who want more than just a “commercial” beach vacation. In a given weekend you might climb Cascade Head, go crabbing in the Salmon River, hike to the Drift Creek bridge, build a driftwood fort on Three Rocks Beach, maybe take a swim in the pool, relax in the hot tub, then relax with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the front deck while watching the sunset. The possibilities are greater here than at most coastal destinations. The kitchen makes entertaining easy, but there are also great restaurants nearby in Otis, Neskowin, Pacific City and Lincoln City.

If you go you’ll likely need: Hiking shoes, river shoes, a bathing suit, fishing gear, and a canoe, kayak or small motorboat. The possibilities are many, so best to prepare for anything!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 4th year having a family July 4th gathering in this house which is located in Cascade Head Ranch near Otis, OR

Our adult children and grandchildren love it and so do we. We watched Elk walk right up to the house! There are deer and a variety of birds among the old growth trees that surround the house. The pool was clean w/perfect temperature. The hike is gorgeous, and wildflowers were abundant. There is so much to do that does not require you to be "plugged in" but you can go to the boathouse where there is wifi if you're having withdrawls. This is the only time of the year where we just play games, poker, watch the children perform plays that they made up and just generally enjoy each other's company. Not a fancy interior, but comfy/cozy, you have everything you need & sleeps many. The Casino & nightlife in is nearby in Lincoln City. We watched our grandchildren while their parents went out on the town one night. Everyone was happy with that arrangement! The owner is a really nice person and we will return next year for sure.
