Other Things to Note
This is a very special place requiring honorable intention. A peaceful retreat setting, not the party place...
Spectacular Oregon COast easy ride in for day visit(s). Old growth wilderness hiking up Sweet Creek just 20 minutes away. Local walk nice too!
Appreciation and respect for this Natural Wonderland.
The Coho Cabana was a perfect setting for an impromptu weekend getaway from Portland. It's easy to find, but tucked away in the woods by a babbling (salmon spawning) brook. The cabin is very minimal and allows you to immerse yourself in the woods. Linda and Steve were the perfect blend of welcoming and respectful of privacy. They're very warm and happy to give recommendations for hikes, wildlife spotting and other hidden gems. I plan to return.
We had a great time at the Coho Cabana. Linda was super flexible with our check-in and check-out times and went out of her way to make sure we were situated. The cabin was the most cozy and just what we needed after a long week — so much so, that we extended to a second night. We're excited to come back and spend more time here!
Love this place! Rustic cabin, but with electricity (coffee maker, space heater, microwave, toaster), a shower, and a great propane stove under the awning. Lovely creek and a fire ring right outside the door. Definitely hope to be back.
What an amazing stay! I had the best time enjoying the forest with little to no outside noise pollution. The crickets were simply wondrous. Also, The host was thoughtful enough to leave a air blaster which was both hilarious and would of been very useful if we needed to get their attention. Would def. come back.
It was wonderful to stay at the cozy Coho cabana. Linda was fantastic during all of the arrangements.
I actually stayed in Thoreau the whole visit.I loved it...having wanted a camping experience without the hassle! The setting is awesome,a lovely creek running by the back deck. Linda and Steve were very hospitable,and attentive hosts...they immediately sorted out a wifi issue,and loaned me a video phone when I could not make my cell work.
I would definitely return.
Linda and Steve are wonderful people. The little cabin had everything you needed and was so cozy and perfect. Linda was quick to respond with our booking and so helpful with directions and getting us set and ready to come out! Steve came to great us and showed us how to use the water and where the trails and little bridge was, oh and he also built us a fire! This was everything we were looking for!!
Thank you for sharing it with us!
