Any trip to Oregon is likely to be a good one, but choosing the right Oregon VRBO can be the extra detail that makes your good vacation great.

Oregon is such a unique state with such a huge variety of stunning sights that it can be a downer to spend the day in the mountains but go back to a generic corporate hotel at night. So renting a unique Oregon vacation rental can help add a personal, local touch to your lodging – and save some money in the process.

The Beaver State is pretty big, so sifting through to find the ultimate VRBO can be quite a challenge, or at least time-consuming, at the very least. And selecting the right vacation house in Oregon is almost as important as picking your travel destination itself. Are you on your way out to Mount Hood? The Coast? Crater Lake?

Wherever your plans take you, there’s a rental on this list you’ll want to return to again and again. These are the best VRBOs in Oregon, from the desert to the beach and everywhere in between. Where do you want to stay?

  • Rates from: $195/night

Nestled in the forested hillsides of south Falcon Cove Beach, this oceanfront home offers both privacy and expansive ocean views.

You can surf, beachcomb, or hike right outside the front door, or just further explore just around the bend at Oswald West State Park. The happening coastal town of Cannon Beach – famous for the picturesque Haystack Rock – is only eight miles away.

Within minutes you can be dining at a local restaurant, riding the ski lifts, or hiking one of the many nearby trails. Mount Hood Ski Bowl is under six miles away and and Timberline is about five minutes further.

There may be no more awesome central Oregon escape than this amazingly well-situated and well-appointed High Desert Cabin. Sitting on the front deck, you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world high up in the hills as you look down on vast stretches of sagebrush desert and the massive Prineville Reservoir.

Get ready to relax the day and night away. When the sun dips low, the stars shine bright — you’ll never want to take your eyes off the sky. If you get the itch for adventure, though, the reservoir is a short drive down the road, and the town of Prineville isn’t far in the other direction.

“The views are phenomenal and the home is spacious yet cozy. We simply love everything — the pool table, the expansive property for hikes, the fire pit — it really couldn’t be more perfect. We can’t wait to come back!”

The layout of the home was perfect and the surrounding views were too.
