About the area

The home is approximately 3 miles north of shopping in Newport and approximately 1 mile south of Beverly Beach State Park. Ocean fishing is a leisurely walk from the driveway to the beach or, less than two miles south are two beautiful reservoirs for trout fishing. Deep Sea fishing, crabbing, clamming are available at the historic newport marina. The Newport Aquarium is a "must see" and judged as one of the top 10 in the nation. Newport is advertised as the #1 spot for Dungeness Crabs. Depot Bay, a whale watching and storm watching sensation, and Lincoln city are a short drive north. Driving through Wine country is part of the enjoyment of the coast. Don't miss the Wine and food festival or the kite flying championships.

This house is beautiful and comes with everything you would need for a vacation at the beach. It rained all weekend but there were endless things to do in the house; games, pool, ping pong, darts, lounge around, or veg out to the spectacular view! We spent the weekend with six others and also had some folks over for a surprise party one was AWESOME!!! The furnishings are beautiful as well. You walk in and feel immediately at home. We WILL go back!!!

“Perfect Vacation Home!”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2015

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us! I rented it this past weekend for a family reunion. It honestly couldn't have been more perfect. There was plenty of space and the game room kept everyone entertained. We got to watch some amazing storms from the giant windows. The beds we're very comfortable as well. If there would be even one thing that I would change it would be filling in some of the potholes in the front driveway. My little car had a bit of a rough ride. Other than that it truly was ideal. The rental company you use was very helpful and made me feel extremely confident with their service. Thanks again!

Owner's reply: Heather, We are very appreciative of your visit and certainly grateful for this review. This is an amazing home and we always want our guests to enjoy every minute ~ and return often! That driveway is at the top of our list for repairs! Rainy winters on the coast…… Come see us again, soon. Thank you!

We stay at Blackberry Hill every year in the spring. A retreat for artists and musicians and their off spring! The house has every thing for all age groups, an amazing view, enough room for everyone to have their own space, pool, ping-pong, chess, and just across the street from quiet and lovely Moolack Beach with amazing tide pools. We will return next year!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much Kerri for your review. I am so glad that you had another enjoyable stay. Our guests are so important to us and hope they enjoy our dream home as much as we do. Karen Orduno

“Great Home with Amazing View”

Reviewed 30 Jan 2013

This home was perfect for our large family gathering - 5 adults and 4 kiddos. We all enjoyed the amenities very much. Our only suggestions were left on a note on the table -- didn't think everyone really needed to know what we had to say but hoped owners/agency would definitely see the need.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the lovely review. I am glad you had a good time and hope the weather didn't stop you from outdoor activities while at the beach. Please think of us when you come back to visit our lovely town. Karen Orduno Thanks for your suggestion, too… taken care of and all is as super as possible! I hope we see you again, soon.

“Had high hopes”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2012

We went here with some family to celebrate our son's 3rd birthday. At first arrival, we were all blown away by the beauty of the house and it's surroundings. However, as we spent more time, we began to feel that our vacation was not as hoped. The house is on a well, and one day we actually ran out of water! My mom had to cart bottled water into the shower to finish. When the water truck arrived, we were told this house actually shares a well with a other house. So, no matter how much we heeded the numerous warnings posted on the house, we were not in control of saving water. And speaking of warnings and directions, they are posted envoy where. I can understand posting general rules, however, we felt very much on edge the whole time, being warned that "they had pictures of everything in the house" so it would be known if we took something. The property is amazing; however, it is not relaxing as you are always making sure to follow all the rules, conserve all your water (a family of 9 would not have enough water), and make sure not to leave with anything.

Owner's reply: Heather & all guests ~ This is an incredible home! As with many homes on the coast, it does, however, use well-water. When the season goes on into summer, the well understandably gets low. We have water brought in on a scheduled basis to replenish the well…and meet all our guests’ needs. Most important we want ALL our guests to enjoy their visit, love our home and see all there is to see on this fabulous Oregon coast. We hope that simply being careful of water use would not override the whole big picture. “Shared” use of the water well was inaccurate information given to you. Posted information is for your ease and knowing how to deal with all potential situations. Guests will see from pics where items return to, housekeeping will know how to put all back in place ~ and yes, we’ll know what’s missing. Sadly, Heather, THAT happens often, too. Our homeowners trust us all with their valuable and incredible home, which is a personal labor of love. We want it & all accessories left for all our guests to enjoy and be here for the owners’ return. Use the signs as applicable ~ I visited you mid-stay to check on you and all seemed very happy with the home. A phone call to me could potentially have kept your visit seamless and completely satisfactory. Your review helps us in maintaining our quality and our outstanding customer service record. Thank you.

We have stayed at many luxury homes along the Oregon Coast, and none of them can rival this lovely home! Amazing views from great room, and all three bedrooms! - all the while the soothing purr of the ocean is constant in the background. We were there just before the "big" storm and enjoyed days of sun, and days of showers - each spectacular in their own dimension. The owners have thought of all the creature comforts to make this a splendid respite. The kitchen is so workable with all the extras, - Emeril would love it. Blackberry Hill is very private - yet you are minutes away from the shopping, restaurants and fishing activities of Newport and the Central Coast. Beautifully decorated and cared for by the owners. They obviously take great pride in this property. in addition, they are delightful to work with - very helpful! Like us, you will find yourselves blessed should you take the opportunity to spend a holiday at Blackberry Hill. We shall certainly return!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the review. I am so glad that the weather did not deter you from having a successful crabbing day, and then waking up the next to a white Christmas; In January, no less. We are looking forward to your return, but stay a little longer, 3 days is too short for a family reunion. Karen

“Almost Perfect!”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2011

Wonderful modern "log cabin" style house with beautiful view of ocean! Nicely appointed rooms and bathrooms, and well stocked kitchen. Would have rated 5 stars had it not been for the well water (which stank of sulfur), and the fact that we had no hot water for a day (never was told to turn the hot water "breaker" switch back on upon arival). We needed to bring in large amounts of bottled water for our family of four to consume. Also a real chore to clean a house of this size at the end of a week (agency expects everything to be cleaned, scrubbed, sheets changed, towels washed, floors mopped, etc)... took us near half a day to complete all required tasks! Overall a beautiful home, but has a few hitches that comes along with it. I think we will stay at an alternative home next time with city water and a cleaning fee built in!

“Blackberry Hill Visit”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2011

Overall it was a pleasant stay. Plenty of towels, plenty of space (seriously you could have a family reunion here) and a pretty good location. My biggest complaint was the water; it was a little soft and salty, but not awful. I do suggest the owner check up on some of their appliances, no significant problems but there were some bugs so to speak. It was a great place to stay overall.

“Great Location”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2011

This is a fantastic home to share with family and friends. Our family of 6 was very comfortable in this home. Plenty of room to stretch out and visit and the 4 bathrooms made it easy to get ready in the mornings. Open floorplan is wonderful for evening gatherings of visiting, laughing, and sharing the days experiences. The deck is a great place to have a morning cup of coffee while watching the waves. If you get a chance while you are visiting take in the whale watching tours and try the tuna fishing. Our boat caught 65 tuna the day we went out. We would recommend Yaquina Bay Charters. It was a wonderful time had by all!!

“Fantastic View”

Wonderful home - spacious and comfortable. Our family of 7 were very much at home for a week. Loved the chess set!
