Hi all! I stayed at the Wayside Lodge this past weekend (11/10/12) and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was in Yachats to help out in a booth for the Yachats Celtic Music Festival. The booth owner and I shared the #4 cabin, which has an upstairs dormer style room with two beds, and a separate bedroom downstairs. Amenities include a small range, refrigerator, full bath, a small tv, a comfortable couch, a small dining table, and a view out the sliding glass door to the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
I stayed upstairs in the dormer area. The bed was very comfortable, with a Ralph Lauren down comforter and 4 nice pillows. I slept like a rock with the sound of the wind, rain, and ocean lulling me to sleep.
Checking in was an easy experience. The manager asked me to come check in between 3pm-6pm. As the festival was only about a 5 minute drive away, this was fine.
The cabin itself is not beautiful. The decor is quaint and a bit dated, and the building itself is obviously not new. But, there was evidence of ongoing renovations everywhere. However, the cottage was extremely clean, no mustiness that seems common on the coast, and warm when we arrived. There are plenty of pots, pans, and dishes available as well.
Checking out was easy as well. There is simply a place to put your keys. Free wi-fi was a definite bonus, and seemed fairly reliable.
In short, I would definitely recommend the Wayside Lodge if you are looking for cozy, comfortable, and affordable. Cabin #4 was a bargain and will strongly consider returning on future trips to the Yachats area.
