Overview

About the property

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)

This historic 1922 bungalow in the heart of Yachats village was restored from the foundation up, started in 2010 and completed in 2012. It's located at 362 W. 2nd Street and as the name says, everything is just a “stone’s throw” away. You’re just two doors down from Yachats’ State Park where you can whale watch, play frisbee, or wander down to the rocky marine preserve where tide pools and agates abound. Watch flocks of pelicans wheel by, as otters and seals peek from the surf. When the tide is low, you can walk all the way down to where the 804 trail meets the ocean at the Adobe, and from there it is just another short walk along the 804 to the sandy beach – seven miles of it.

Or, head into town, just two blocks away, where you’ll find restaurants like Heidi’s Homemade Italian and the Drift Inn or head down to the Wine Place for some fine wine tasting. Enjoy some of the many events held at the Yachats commons, or wander through the farmer’s market in front of the commons on a Sunday morning. If you have kids with you, you’ll find a playground just behind the commons with the best tree house on the coast. Just a block and a half from your doorway, you’ll find the Little Log Church, now a historical museum, or wander over to Toad Hall or Rain Dogs for some gift shopping. And for breakfast and the best locally roasted coffee, we recommend The Green Salmon, just two blocks from your doorstep.

If you want to stay inside, you’ll find retro charm and modern comfort. A wood-fired stove warms the living room, next to a sofa and two easy chairs and a bookcase full of everything from mysteries to classics. There’s even a piano for the musically inclined. One bedroom features a queen bed and a foldout double. The other features a king, four-poster bed, mood lighting and a faux fireplace for warmth and atmosphere. The dining area seats 6 to 8, or head into the kitchen and enjoy the great view from the retro bar. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and entertaining, including a microwave. And beyond that, the den opens up on an incredible view through four large picture windows. Enjoy the sight of Cape Perpetua as the sun sinks toward the sea. Relax in the cozy sofa or armchair and watch TV or one of the many DVD’s on hand. There are plenty of board games and puzzles in the den as well, and at night, the sofa folds out into a double bed. The bathroom is also fully remodeled with a roomy, tiled shower and bath tub (and a great shower head!).

This little gem of a house is a unique property. The historic Yachats village neighborhood comprises just a few square blocks, and this is one of the few remaining original bungalows restored to its former glory. Unlike many properties, no driving is required once you park your car! It’s great for a couple seeking a romantic weekend close to everything, for a family with kids looking for some easy, family fun, or two couples enjoying a joint vacation. It sleeps four comfortably in the first bedroom, two in the den, and two in the second bedroom (you can fight over who gets the king-sized bed). Whatever your requirements, give Stones Throw Bungalow a try, and we promise you’ll enjoy your stay.

About Johnny and Julie Mathison

We're a family of four with two young children.

Johnny and Julie Mathison purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why Johnny and Julie Mathison chose Coastal Oregon

We fell in love with Yachats years ago and knew when we found this unique, historic bungalow that it was ideal for restoration. Yachats is a special village, like a step back into simpler times. We've always loved the natural beauty, but what we learned after spending time in Yachats is just how wonderful the community is. It's a tight knit community filled with people who care and get involved. We hope you find it to be as special as we have.

What makes this bungalow unique

Historic character coupled with modern comfort and attention to detail. Materials and design were selected to harken back to the 40s and 50s. Very few vacation rentals are situated in this historic neighborhood, so close to everything. We've also retained the beach bungalow style.

Cozy bungalow home, perfectly located for touring from Newport to Florence!

  • 5 of 5

Just a short walk to the ocean, restaurants and grocery store! The State Park at the end of the road is just a few minutes walk..great for low tide and high tide and a great place to view sunsets. Nice table for six, great for eating and game playing. Nice high speed internet...great for streaming. One older style TV with basic cable, but many DVDs, if you want to watch a movie. We were too busy to watch either. This is our second stay at this home. The owners were very responsive when we had questions/concerns. We recommend this home and would stay here again.

Very quiet neighborhood, but close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable, including the beds. Sun room was comfy, and had a nice view of the coast line. Enjoyed a presto log in the wood stove. Bathroom is nicely remodeled. It is in a central location so a short walk to most places in Yachats.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this house. It is literally two houses down from the beach and beautifully comfortable inside. They have a cute little piano, beautiful back deck with fire pit and tons of drift wood at the beach to gather for the back yard bon fire. Our family felt very at home and incredibly connected all weekend. This was our first time visiting Yachats and we will definitely be coming back. This house was within walking distance of the GREAT Drift Inn restaurant, groceries and coffee... everything we needed =)

Instructions for the house we so easy too**

Thank you*
