This cedar, glass and old-growth floored cabin was built in 1966 by a young architect. It sits at the edge of a beautiful wetlands with a hill between it and the ocean. Perfect retreat for one, for two or three friends. Very romantic.

The space

This space is unique, because the cabin, itself, is so well designed and beautiful. You can push the clearstory windows open and hear the ocean at night, walk around the corner and down a block and you are on a beautiful beach. Starry nights are phenomenal. The trees are phenomenal. The whole place is visually private. It is calming to be at the cabin.

Guest access

The cabin, the deck, the garden are yours to enjoy. The shed, however, holds the water heater, a non-functioning washer and dryer, gardening tools. The shed and its contents are not for guests. The beach, right around the corner and down, is wonderful in both directions. To the end of 4th Avenue and to the right are the dunes. They are seemingly endless and incredible, beautiful, magical. Off street parking for one car.

Interaction with guests

I am available by cell and by email. Susan, the woman who helps me care for the cabin, lives near by and is available personally. She is also, of course, available by phone and email.

Other things to note

The cabin is on a septic tank. The plumbing is therefore fragile. No tampons down the toilet, etc. No smoking and no shoes inside. There are nice rugs and old growth fir floors, both damaged easily by sand and shoes, and there's lots of sand outside! The cabin is small and fragile, but very beautiful, comfy and cozy. Wonderful outside spaces. Lots of birds and squirrels. Big moons and bright stars at night. The hill between the cabin and the ocean protects the cabin and its deck from the ocean winds -- nice.
Even rainy days and nights are good, good. The town of Florence is sweet, has good food. The hotel just down the beach serves good breakfast. Nice to walk down there in the mornings for breakfast, late at night for a drink.

This is a no pets and no smoking house. I have children and grandchildren who have allergies to both dogs and cats. Sorry. I also ask that you remove your shoes inside the cabin; the floors are old-growth fir, beautiful but fragile. This is not a party house. It's a place for a couple, a couple with an infant. Not a good place for toddlers. The stairs are steep and inadequately protective for toddlers. There is a double bed in the master loft bedroom, bunk beds in the 2nd bedroom. Beds are comfortable with nice bedding and comforters. There is no garbage service; I ask that guests take their garbage back home with them (Plastic garbage bags under the sink.) Everything you will need for your comfort and pleasure is there. Cozy. Please treat the cabin gently. The cabin is best for 2 persons. It will sleep four if two people sweet in the double bed. Best if no more than 3.

Janice's Rustic cabin nestled in the trees is a truly special place. We were completely enchanted the moment we stepped foot in the garden and approached the wooden front door. From the soft glow of the chandelier and lamps, to the large windows that make you feel like you're living outside, the cozy reading nook tucked under the stairs, and stellar mini music collection to set the optimal tone for a chill and laid-back stay. The bed in the loft was super cozy and although the kitchen is quaint, we had no trouble cranking out yummy home-cooked meals. The wifi was great and enabled me to work for several hours per day through a voip connection. Our cell service is through at&t and we did not have any service as we got within 5 minutes driving to the cabin FYI. The beach was only a few blocks away and absolutely breathtaking!! Janice and Susan could not have been better communicators or more inviting. We truly enjoyed our stay and would love to visit again!

This cabin was perfect for our long weekend. We were lucky to enjoy clear nights under the stars on the deck. The garden was full of flowers and the cabin was truly as cozy as it is represented in the post! We slept upstairs and the bed was very comfortable. The windswept beach was a very short walk away and we could hear soothing ocean sounds at night. It was a great place to practice our camp cooking (and grilling and marshmallow roasting) and a wonderful place for long chats over a glass of wine. The cabin is near to other homes but feels private and the huge windows overlooking the woods really helped me to feel far from the city!

This is a very cute place. We really enjoyed our stay here: you can walk 10 minutes down to a hotel restaurant, and the old town of Florence is only about a 15 min drive away. There are trails and other cities within a 20-40 min drive along the beautiful coast. We ordered Abby's pizza one night, which delivers to this location! Just a note about accessibility: Being pregnant I was aware that this house might not be a good match for people with mobility limitations. The full-size bed is up in a loft with narrow stairs and the bathroom is downstairs. The bathroom is also quite small, so be aware that turning in the shower and using the toilet are a little more challenging than in a bigger bathroom. The steps to the house are wide and shallow, as is the step into the shower, so no issues there!

Cozy cabin. Loved the patio. Clearly a labor of love with lots of memories lingering. Close to the beach (a 5 minute drive). A wine bottle on arrival was a nice touch. Really enjoyed our stay.

Jan's cabin was beautiful on the inside and out. We were a family of 4 adults and we were very comfortable. The beds were clean and plush with lots of pillows and blankets available. The cabin inside was cozy and beautiful. The place has such an eclectic vibe that is special. Some constructive improvements can be made regarding cleanliness though. The shower was dirty and had hair in it when we arrived and the towels had an odd smell and did not look very clean. The floor was also very dusty/dirty and was due for a sweep. It also would have been nice to have a washer/dryer but we were told it is being fixed. Overall the place was great and some minor improvements with the cleanliness would make this place awesome. I do however; think it is overpriced in my honest opinion. We have stayed in nicer locations and nicer Airbnbs for much less but we weren't disappointed with the place by any means. The beach is also a short walk away and is very beautiful at sunset.

Response from Janice:
This is a troubling response. My grand-daughter and I were the last people to stay overnight in the cabin before Lila's arrival. The cabin was immaculate when we arrived, immaculate when we departed, except for the possible exception that Iris did not vacuum perfectly. I did not check her vacuuming. I personally changed all the sheets, hung out fresh towels. checked to make sure everything was clean, fresh and in order before we left. I even trimmed the rose bush and brought the roses inside for a bouquet, left a bottle of wine and good coffee. I appreciate that Lila thought the cabin and its surrounds were beautiful. I am known, among my family and the woman who helps me take care of the cabin, as a clean freak (among other things). I truly am sorry that Lila experienced the cabin as less than truly clean. I am very particular about that very thing. The charm and beauty,the worth, of the cabin always undisputed. Jan K.

We loved staying at this cabin! It was relaxing, quiet, and surrounded by nature. Not to mention how close it was to the beach. Communication with Janice was great - would recommend!

I am a psychotherapist with a strong literary bent. This picture of me was taken last year when my granddaughter, in the picture with me, was headed off to her first year of college. I love life here in Eugene and look forward to helping you have a most wonderful stay here. If you want to stay longer in Oregon, I also own a cottage over at the coast. I have lived up in Portland, can give you good advice for getting around up there as well.
