Welcome to the Shipwreck House! The Glenesslin, with its proud portrait hanging over the fireplace, came aground on the rocky coastline near Nehalem, Oregon. This home has pieces of the reclaimed wood from the original ship, giving the home its name. With masterful views of the rocks and ocean beyond, it’s easy to see what the sailors of yore experienced! The Shipwreck House is just south of the wonderful village of Yachats and offers a unique floor plan for the adventurous. Enter through the front door in to the living area with windows across the west side of the house, a large dining area, kitchen and breakfast nook.
The staircase from the living room goes up to the first of two sleeping areas. This second floor space has two bedrooms and a bath, both with queen beds. The second staircase, next to the kitchen, leads to a wonderful sitting area with expansive views to the north and west, including the lights of Yachats at night. This sitting room includes two sleeper sofas, flat screen television and is next to another bedroom with a king bed and a shared bathroom. Back downstairs on the main level, there is a master suite with views to the south as well as an ensuite bathroom. Tucked in next to the master bedroom is a bedroom with two twin beds.
The Shipwreck House is just minutes away from Cape Perpetua, Heceta Head Lighthouse, and the wonderful restaurants and art galleries in Yachats. Inside, you can stay entertained with a ping pong table, a shuffleboard and an assortment of board games.

My husband, 21 year old daughter, 17 year old son, our Cavalier pupper and I stayed 4 nights at Shipwreck house in January 2021. It was one of the best short vacations we have ever had! ***VIEWS!!!*** The home is located right above a rocky beach and the views were incredible!!! We loved the feeling of being "isolated" while still being just a mile or so south of Yachats. We didn't go anywhere the first full day we were there as watching the waves crash into the rocks was incredibly exciting as well as being peaceful. The Wi-Fi was a tad spotty in the house, but one of the upstairs bonus rooms housed the router, so we could connect when we had to. I don't think my daughter even used the internet once because she enjoyed reading her book in front of the picture window.
It was easy to access the rocky beach and just south of the home seals congregated. It was a blast watching them, and one day I will have to look up why they lifted their back flippers up when the waves spilled over them. ??? They definitely watched our 25-pound pupper, even though the beast was across a rocky finger from their area.
It was everything I want when I actually make it on vacation! Semi-isolated location, full kitchen, 3 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms (and an interesting space off the master bath that had two twin beds in it), living room, and two bonus areas. This house just went on and on, and was actually too big for us, but everyone enjoyed being able to retreat to their own space after too much family togetherness. :)
It is an older home, but it had hot water, got warm quickly, and the bed in the master was so comfortable that I slept super well. I loved the character and charm of the house, and the revolving U-shaped chairs by the picture window in the dining/living room were fantastic for watching the waves! We will definitely go back to Shipwreck house in the summer so that we can explore more and do some hiking.

Had an amazing time at the Shipwreck house. Its a beautiful and comfy place to spend some quality time with your loved ones and enjoy the ocean view and if the climate is in your favor you can sit out for hours and enjoy.

Great home for a reunion of friends coming from around Oregon.
This home is spacious and clean and has fantastic views. The beds were really comfortable and the hosts were helpful and readily available.

Everything we could want
Location, location, location. Is near the water, but not too close. Crashing waves, tide pools and enough sand for kids to play. And a great deck too - morning sun on the south side and evening light on the north side. For decades, we (3 families, 3 kids, & a dog) rent someplace different every Holiday season, except now we're coming back here because it's just right for us. The house is older but big, with 2 suites and 3 extra bedrooms, not counting couches and the basement. If you want modern, only the suites will keep you happy, but we enjoyed the wood, big dining room table, giant windows, garage playroom, and large area in the living room. The kitchen is small, but well equipped, although the utensil drawers are a bit awkward. The manager offered to give us a personal orientation, and was very responsive by texting.

A time with family for Christmas-two families that come together as one.
The house was nicely broken up where each of our families could have our own areas to "getaway." However, the open area was bright, beautiful, and nice to connect with the family. The Dramatic Views are exactly right; beautiful, relaxing, and a nice porch to listen to the waves from etc.
