About Barbara Gimlin, Owner

I am a biologist and environmental compliance specialist with my own consulting business, Blue Heron Environmental Consulting. I purchased Heritage House Apartments in 2006, as I loved the building from the first time I saw it. There are six apartments in the building, with three full time residents and three apartments converted to fully furnished vacation rentals. For more information on me, check out my website:

Off the beaten path enjoyment!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the generosity of the owner. Her hints on where to go and what to do and even how to get there made the stay more pleasant. The apartment was smaller than imagined and located in a very quiet neighborhood. Quaint would be the best way to describe the location. We were usually only there for the evenings as we traveled during the day.

The property is an older residence that is well maintained and close to the center of Coos Bay.

  • 4 of 5

Close to the city center, the Heritage residence is charming. The owner was both helpful and welcoming. She provided fresh cut flowers, fresh baked goods and farm fresh eggs, which made our stay even more special. The area is very picturesque and offers great opportunities for hiking and sightseeing.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment worked out well for us. It had plenty of room, the neighborhood was quiet and it was close to town. We cooked several meals there and it had everything we needed. I would recommend it, and would stay there again! We had great communication with the owner. The apartment is on the ground floor.
