Welcome to The Western Whitehouse!
If you’re into ocean sport-fishing, sightseeing, whale-watching or just enjoying ocean sunsets, The Western Whitehouse on the Southern Oregon Coast gives you so much to choose from. The dramatic rocky coastline dips and soars above the always-changing Pacific Ocean, and its many coves and promontories dazzle visitors with panoramic views, fiery sunsets and tide pools teeming with life. A short drive in any direction will take you to historic lighthouses, vantage points perfect for watching whales and the area’s many other marine mammals, world class golf courses, fascinating estuaries and a stunning expanse of wind-sculpted sand dunes.
In addition to beautiful views and shelter from Pacific storms, the bay offers visitors excellent fishing, crabbing and clamming. Coos, Lower Umpqua, Siuslaw and Coquille Indians lived in the area for thousands of years before European settlers arrived in the early 1800s. J.C. Tolman of the Coos Bay Co. founded the busy port in 1854, and it quickly became a thriving shipping and commercial center.
Today, North Bend and Coos Bay still holds much of its early coastal-frontier character. A tour of the area showcases many turn-of-the-century homes, businesses and public buildings, and the waterfront districts remain a hub of commerce and leisure.
Our family loves the Southern Oregon Coast which is also known as, "The Secret Coast" because there are no crowds compared to the rest of the Western Coast. We purchased The Western Whitehouse because we enjoy vacationing here ourselves. Not only does the house have the benefit of the magnificent views, it is also very private; with the feeling of being in the country on the 1½ acres of land. Enjoy views of the Coos Bay and McCullough Bridge from your windows and deck and evening views of the city lights across the bay. After a day of fun, there is nothing better than relaxing and enjoying a family BBQ on the large deck overlooking the bay.

We arrived at night, so our first impression was how clean the home is and second was "THIS PLACE IS BEAUTIFUL AND HUGE". We woke in the morning to a BEAUTIFUL view. So peaceful and relaxing. A deck across the entire back of the house. Great selection of books and the owners are so awesome about book trading too. The kitchen is fully equipped with whatever you need for cooking and eating, including cookbooks! Lots of magazines. And laundry, they even have laundry soap!! We had an issue with the garbage disposal and after one call to the owners, they had a wonderful young man come right out to fix it right up! It's a wonderful home for making some pretty amazing family memories. Thank you for sharing your home and for providing so much to make our stay so convenient. Great shopping, great eating, great places to visit. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!! We will be back soon!!!
Great place, love it, love it, love it

We have stayed twice and absolutely love. I may have the dates wrong as I am writing this review well beyond the lodging date. Our first stay was cut short due to a power outage, Amy gladly offered us a raincheck on our remaining night and both times, the place is clean, inviting, and prepared. Whoever wrote a negative review on the cleanliness must have checked in on a bad day for the cleaning service. Can't say enough great things about this place.

I miss the million dollar view!!! I love the size of the home. Lots of room for everyone. My kids loved the Rec. room and played games in there for hours. We really enjoyed Katie the friendly neighborhood dog. She was so very warm and friendly to all of us. There is a ton of privacy at this home. And I must say again the view is to die for!!!!

This was a great place for some peaceful family time. There is a beautiful view of the bay from the deck and living room. The home was clean and well maintained, with a well stocked kitchen. We would rent this one again!

The Whitehouse is not just a "property" or a "house" - it is very much a HOME. Communication with the homeowner was like talking with a family member, warm, helpful and kind. The senic drive to the home is spectacula and the view is ever changing watching the tide come in and out. Thank you for the use of the telescope - what an added bonus - to be able to check out the logging accross the bay and the crab traps We will definitely recommend this VRBO to anyone traveling the coast of Oregon. Thank you for sharing your home!.
Very cozy home with a beautiful view and wonderful amenities

We had a short 2 day stop here on our way up the coast. It was very relaxing. The owner is very friendly and responsive to our questions. It's great to sit in the hot tub and look out over the Bay.
