“Poor man's Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

This hotel reminds me so much of Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay in the Bay Area. No, it doesn't have a high-end golf course and fancy decor. It doesn't even have a dining room. But it has everything you need for a relaxing weekend; stunning ocean and surf view from a balcony, a large in-room whirlpool, electronic gas fireplace, wet bar, fridge, microwave, Spa, exercise room, and library. We also fell in love with the town of Yachats (population 690). It is tiny, but offers 5 or 6 enchanting, high quality restaurants. We plan to return to Yachats and stay at this hotel again this summer.

We are delighted that you enjoyed everything that we have to offer for your weekend getaway. As you mentioned, we don’t have a restaurant, but we do offer a delicious, home-cooked breakfast buffet. The charming village of Yachats offers several great dining choices, all within a mile from the lodge. Our amenities also include our beautiful spa facilities, along with a complete menu of rejuvenating body treatments; an exercise room with a divine view; a lending library; guest laundry and our incomparable ocean views. And if golf is something that your heart yearns for, we do have a 9-hole golf course just a few miles away or an 18-hole course within 30 miles. We hope you will be enchanted all over again on your return trip.

We appreciate knowing that the Overleaf Lodge was one of the best places you stayed on your trip and that you found our location to be “perfect”. Although room 105 is a one of a kind room, it is similar to our Cook’s Galley rooms which are available on upper floors. All of these rooms do offer amazing views of the waves crashing against the rocks, or like you experienced, whales swimming by. We are glad you thought the breakfast was excellent. Our breakfast staff prepares a wide variety of home-cooked and fresh selections, including hot, savory entrees, homemade pastries and granola, English muffins, yogurt, and large bowls of mixed fruit. We hope you will think of us on your next trip to the Oregon Coast.

We have stayed multiple times at the Overleaf. With each stay we just feel the stress of life melting away. The lodge staff was great as usual and the Welcome Back bouquet of flowers was such a thoughtful touch. It made us feel like we were "coming home". There has been some small updates to the original lodge rooms which we were pleased to see. The breakfast is still so yummy! The staff in the kitchen do an outstanding job. Do not hestitate to visit Yachats and the Overleaf the views from the balcony are worth the visit itself.

Thank you for continuing to “come home” to the Overleaf Lodge & Spa. We love knowing that your “stress just melts away” when you are staying with us. Our lodge does have a lovely, tranquil atmosphere and if a little extra help is needed, our spa can do wonders! We appreciate you and we thank you for your review.

We stayed here midway through trip down the Oregon coast (started in Portland, then Cannon Beach). It was the PERFECT place to stay for a night. The views were unbelievable. We had fun walking around and climbing on the rocks before heading into town for dinner. The room was great; very clean and updated. The view is what you come to Yachats for…that and to eat at Luna Sea Fish House. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was one of the best "continental" breakfasts I've had. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here!.

Thank you for your enthusiastic review and recommendation. The magnificent views from the Overleaf Lodge are definitely a “must see” on any trip to the Oregon coast. Our rocky coastline gives us abundant opportunities to explore tide pools or to be awed by the raw beauty of the waves crashing ashore. Yachats also gives access to miles of trails encompassing old-growth forest, panoramic ocean views or an easy stroll along the water’s edge.

This was our first time staying in Yachats and we really had a great time. We chose the Perpetua cottage at random and it was a winner. Very quiet, but could still hear the surf. Nice appointments, clean, and a bit of an ocean view. The Overleaf staff was very friendly, helpful with questions, and suggestions. This is a place to kick back and relax, at least in May. No rowdy beach parties, barking dogs, or trash laying around. The hotel itself has a great view and is perched above the rocky shore - a great place to watch the sun set, as we did. Note that the cottages do not include the hotel breakfast, which is understandable, since the cottages have full kitchens. It's a short walk into "town" which has several nice eateries and deli style lunch places. We will be back!

We are so pleased to read how much you enjoyed Perpetua cottage. Perpetua is a charming 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom cottage with views of the ocean. Our Overleaf Village is very clean, quiet and absolutely peaceful, making it a fantastic choice for a relaxing weekend or extended stay. As you noted, the hotel amenities are not included in the cottage rentals, but all of the cottages are equipped with everything you need, including full kitchens and laundry facilities. Thank you for sharing your experience and your photographs.

I stayed here with family in April at the start of a trip down the Oregon coast. We arrived on my mother's birthday, and had conspired with the hotel ahead of time to have a surprise bottle of bubbly and some flowers and chocolates waiting in the hotel. (King's Estate bubbly and Euphoria chocolate, so both fairly local from around Eugene.) The room had wide windows as well as a little window seat looking over the ocean--the view was sublime, and easily the best part! That said, the beds were comfortable and the room was spacious enough for four adults to not be tripping over each other all the time. The bathtub looked bigger than it was; it has a wide lip so the tub itself was a bit narrow and I banged my elbows a bit. There was a small fridge and a microwave in the room, so we could fix our own food, and a coffee maker.

Breakfast is served until 10 (none of this 'must be up at 7am on holiday to eat' business) with coffee and tea available in the lobby all day. Breakfast was good: oatmeal or scones and croissaints and the like, cereal, lots of fruit. The coffee is good, but (as is usually the case in US hotels) the water isn't nearly hot enough for proper tea. There is a pantry in the lobby as well where you can buy microwave dinners, ice creams, wine, and other little necessities like aspirin and earplugs and the like. It's all quite self-contained.

The best thing to do here is just to walk on the beach, but there's also a fabulous spa with a steam room, sauna, and this amazing soaking pool which looks right out onto the ocean. Everything is provided, from robes and slippers to cucumber slices (for either your water or your eyes). We spent a few hours there along with having blissful massages.

The beach is, of course, fabulous. There's a good trail for wandering or running, a lot of bits to climb on (but be careful), and even what looks like a little setup for bonfires or barbecues! The lobby is also large and well-appointed with chairs and sofas to chat or watch the sea, and there are games at hand to sit and play. All in all plenty to keep busy with and in beautiful surroundings.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony if you can get it, but the window seats are great too.

We are so happy that your stay at the Overleaf Lodge was the"perfect start to your vacation". We love taking part in special occasions, so it was a pleasure to have the Oregon sourced wine and chocolates ready for your mother's birthday celebration. Thank you for sharing your experience; from the "blissful" spa treatments, to the spacious room and our incredible views. We'd also like to thank you for posting your photographs. The photo you took of our campfire ring is where we have summertime s'mores and storytelling after a nature walk led by a wonderfully knowledgeable local naturalist.
