One of the best parts about having a smaller wedding or elopement is that there are far more options available for locations that suit smaller groups better than traditional venues can. And if you’re looking for a more authentic, intimate day with the people you love most without dropping thousands of dollars on a large reception venue, a private VRBO or Airbnb rental home might be a great alternative to a traditional venue for your wedding day.

Since we love how much privacy, backup/weather flexibility, and overnight lodging perks rental homes can have, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite VRBO rentals for elopements and micro weddings in Oregon below.

Note: all images are direct from the listings. We do our best to update information as often as we can, but due to the ever-changing nature of private rentals, know that availability and permission to use each property for an elopement or wedding may change at any time. For the most up-to-date information, always reach out to the owners of each property directly regarding any rules, guest count limits, or additional fees that may apply. Please also keep in mind that while VRBO does have a great feature to filter for places that allow events, Airbnb does not have this filter option, so the links below are from VRBO.

Best VRBO Rentals on the Oregon Coast
