Yachats: "Cool Coastal Town"

"A tranquil village a world away from the hubbub of the city, wonderfully unto itself."  

Yachats and the KOHO neighborhood are prominently featured in the August/September 2017 issue of Oregon Coast magazine. 

"Visitors and residents are drawn to the stunning views, the opportunity to walk to the 804 trails (that parallels the ocean and leads to a seven-mile-long sandy beach), the interesting array of cultural activities (surprising for such a small town), great library (another surprise), and strong sense of community," writes editor Rosemary Camozzi. "Recreational opportunities include hiking, kayaking, and fishing, and Yachats boasts three art galleries and a multitude of performing arts and festivals." 

"Yachats continues to be the hidden gem of the Oregon Coast."



Yachats: A Top Pick (again & again) 

The secret is out! Portland Monthly magazine has recognized the beauty of Yachats:

10 Essential Oregon Beaches
White sand, wild surf, and yes, even warm sun: the height of summer is prime time to explore Oregon's beloved, rugged, completely public cost. These superlative beaches top our list:

Stonefield Beach in Yachats

"It’s easy to miss this pocket beach a jig south of Yachats’s tied-arch bridge over Tenmile Creek. But nab one of the few parking spots at tiny Stonefield Beach State Recreation Site and your beach towel snap might come with the extra satisfaction of having this secluded driftwood-and pebble-ringed beach to yourself. Time it right, and not even the hum of Highway 101 traffic, surprisingly well muffled by a thick fringe of salal, will intrude on a late afternoon of beach reading alchemized by a glorious champagne sunset."

5 Idyllic Destinations


"A beach trail wends right below the private balconies at Yachats’s cozy Fireside Motel. (Do spring for an ocean-view room.) A mile south on the town’s main drag, the fare at quirky Yachats Brewing and Farmstore is next-level homestead: beer-brined chops, tangy sourdough, house-fermented veg. If romance is the plan, consider extending your trip south of Yachats at Heceta Head Lighthouse—the historic light keeper’s house now operates as a bed-and-breakfast."



"Plenty of Charm" 

Lisa Wrenn / Bay Area News Group
"Yachats (pronounced “YAH-hots”) is a snug seaside town that proclaims itself “The gem of the Oregon coast.”

Like any good gem, Yachats reveals its character in distinctive little flaws. Street signs, for example, proclaim such unlikely avenues as Gender Drive, Chipmunk Street, Windy Way and Diversity Drive. And just outside of town, one wry developer has memorialized DC Comics with Lois Lane.

Even routine shopping here can produce unexpected delights. . . ."

Best Place to Live: Yachats!

Isaac Lane Koval
magazine picked The 16 Best Places to Live in U.S. — and Yachats made the list! 

"It’s Oregon’s loveliest sea­side town," the magazine declares. 

"Only about 700 salt-crusted souls live here, along one of the most stunning stretches of Pacific Northwest coastline—think lighthouses and peaks of the spruce-covered Coast Range close to a deep-blue sea."
