Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cabin in Florence - Cabin on the Lake

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Nestled in the trees on Collard Lake, this cozy cabin is the perfect place for a family vacation or a romantic getaway.

The Large deck overlooks the beautiful, calm lake and sand dunes. Perfect for sunning or simply relaxing and reading a good book. Great setting for a BBQ, with nice patio set overlooking the lake. An outoor fire pit is available for roasting marshmallows, hot dogs, or for cooking up freshly caught crab.

The Lake is clean and great for swimming.

Fish for perch, large-mouth bass, or bluegill off the privately owned dock or take the rowboat or canoe out to fish or explore the lake.

If you're in the mood for some sightseeing, we're just minutes from Sea Lion Caves, Heceta Head State Park, Ocean beaches, and the quaint coastal town of Florence, with it's Old Town Shopping district.

For the outdoor enthusiast, close by you'll find hiking and mountain biking trails, the Sandpines Golf Course, Sand Dune Staging Area, Crabbing at the South Jetty docks, and Clam digging in the Siuslaw mud flats.

About The Owner

We built this cabin in 1971 to use as a family vacation home. We used to come here a lot with our five children during the summer months. The kids would have so much fun swimming in the lake and hanging out on the dock catching salamanders. Now our children are all grown and married, with children of their own. They love to bring their families here and enjoy the same experiences with their children that they remember from their childhood. After our retirement, we decided to do some missionary work for our church and were considering selling the cabin. Our children begged us to keep it and let them rent it out to help pay expenses. We have been renting it out for about 6 years now and we love sharing our humble cabin with families who are looking for a place to spend time together and enjoy nature. We hope you love it as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1971

Why The Owner chose Coastal Oregon

We love the Oregon Coast!! It's great year round. We love the Summer months because we can swim in the lake and head over to the beach to play in the surf and sand. We love the winter months because we can snuggle up by the fire with a good book or go to the ocean and watch the crashing waves.

What makes this cabin unique

Our property is right on the beautiful and peaceful Collard Lake. It's great for swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful long weekend here. We paddled to the far end of the lake and climbed the dunes. The weather was great. Thanks!

We had a wonderful time at the cabin on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our time at the cabin! It was perfect for our family of 7. The pictures don't do it justice as the downstairs has been completely updated, as well as some of the upstairs. We had beautiful weather and ate all our meals out on the deck where there is a newer table and chairs. We made use of the canoe, kayak and rowboat and we all enjoyed swimming and jumping off the dock. We visited Heceta Head Lighthouse, Thor's Well and spent time playing on the beach. (The beach was kind of windy but we enjoyed a beautiful sunset and got lots of pictures) The owner was helpful and the property was clean when we arrived. One thing to note is that the upstairs and downstairs have separate entrances, which is listed in the ad if you read closely. This wasn't a problem to our family as we have older children. It would also be great for 2 small families who want to vacation together and eat their meals together as there are two bedrooms and a bath upstairs with a kitchen, and two bedrooms and a bath downstairs. There is also a washer/dryer downstairs. I would recommend this place to others.

An excellent coastal getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property! The lake is beautiful and excellent for boating. We really liked the layout of the cabin and the great view. The house is two-level and has plenty of space. Reservation was easy and the owners provided all necessary information about the house, as well as directions. What a great experience!

Comfy, cozy and relaxing...A home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is just what you are looking for if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and relax at your own private getaway. The lakefront property is quiet and secluded. The lake is beautiful. There were no mosquitoes! The boats were fun and although it was a bit late in the year to go swimming, we could see how inviting the lake would be in warmer weather during the summer. The interior of the cabin is cozy and just right for family gathering. We kind of wished it had been cooler so we could have built a fire in the fireplace. This would be an ideal vacation spot all year long. We felt right at home, and with all the amenities of home provided, about all you need to arrive with is your luggage. There are plenty of stores within a few miles. Florence is a wonderful town and is fun to explore. The ocean is just a couple of miles away, so if the beach is your thing, then it's relatively close. Come discover what our family did - that staying here was just like coming home!

Oh my goodness. This cabin felt like home away from home. It has everything you could need to relax. What a great place to escape to when you need to get away from the city.
