“We start every visit to Yachats at The Drift Inn. We love the warm, inviting atmosphere, full bar, and amazing food. Especially, their wood-fired potato pizza (trust me on this) and their chicken pot pie. The Drift Inn is a family-friendly restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day.They are located on scenic Highway 101 with a view of the Yachats River as it reaches the Pacific Ocean. There is live music every night and a great patio. ”

Park
“On the 804 trail (which is accessible from our street) a few minutes walk north with beautiful ancient lava rock formations and spectacular waves. Caution is advised on rocks at all times and they are slippery. Better to stay on the bluff and grassy area to observe. ”
