Check out the “Dune Trip” video made by one of our guests!



 A unique vacation experience on

 Saunders Lake with easy access to the

 heart of the Oregon dunes since 1998

        Dune Haven offers a unique setting with unobstructed lake view, bordering the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area on the Southern Oregon Coast.  Our accommodations are comfortable and relaxing, nestled among the pines on Saunders Lake.

        From the most adventurous outdoor enthusiast to the guest with only a quiet, relaxing get-away in mind, this inimitable property offers something for everyone.  Take a moment to read some comments from our Guest Books.

        We offer two lakefront accommodations and one overlooking the lake:  our comfortable, 3-bedroom A-frame with fireplace, deck, and well-equipped kitchen, our spacious Studio with patio and well-equipped kitchen, and our 2-bedroom Overlook  with covered porch, roomy living area and well-equipped kitchen.

        Arthur L. & Devin M. – Corning, California – A-frame, November 2009 – We had a blast!  The cabin was AMAZING.  We are mostly Pismo goers, but we decided to try this out.  In my opinion, this is WAY better.  It is very calm and relaxing.  Comfortable and cozy beds.  You guys offer the greatest experience for a dune-loving, nutty kid.  Thank you again.

        Rob & Chelsea H. – Pollock Pines, California, Overlook, June 2009 – We tied the knot on 6/13/09 and this is where we stayed for our honeymoon.  We rode the dunes, explored the nearby cities, visited lighthouses, sea lion caves, and held a baby leopard at the Game Park Safari in Bandon.  This house is the perfect central location for all the things we wanted to do.  Thanks so much!

        All in FMX – Medford, Oregon – A-frame, January, 2009 – We came.  We rode.  It was sick!!!  BRAAAAAAAACK!!!
