Seal Rock house description

Our own personal retreat on the central Oregon coast has two bedrooms, with queen-size and twin/trundle beds, a single-bed futon, and a brand-new hide-a-bed in the vaulted, pine-ceiling living room. High speed internet makes staying in touch a breeze!

Perfect for families, retirees, two couples, or the solo vacationer. This airy one-level home sits among sitka spruce, shore pines, huckleberries, and ferns. A one-minute walk to the beach with easy access for seniors and children. From the well-equipped kitchen and sunny, protected deck you will see light glinting off water between trees, listen to birdsongs, and enjoy the stillness of the immense night sky far from city lights.

Explore some of the coast's best tidepools or walk the long, clean, sandy beach. Watch the sunset. Go crabbing in nearby Waldport, five minutes away, where large supermarkets, a video store, gourmet coffees, and restaurants supply all of your basic needs.

Newport, home of the famous Oregon Coast Aquarium and the Mark Hatfield Science Center, is just twenty minutes north with superb oceanfront dining, a performing arts center, and galleries. Quaint shops, eateries, large docks of yachts and fishing boats, a Madame Tussard's wax museum, and other family entertainment line Newport's Historic Bayfront, while the Rogue Brewery's tasting room is just across the picturesque bay bridge.

Other nearby activities include whale watch cruises, fishing charters, hiking old-growth trails in the coast range's Drift Creek Wilderness, mushrooming (in season), Sea Lion Caves (the largest on the Pacific Coast), horseback riding on the beach - just a half-hour south, historic lighthouses, national and state parks and scenic areas, waterfalls, wine tours, and Oregon sand dunes.

Please tell us a little about your planned stay; it helps us to know who we are speaking with and encourages a successful lodging match. If we don't know your situation we probably won't accept your booking. Thanks in advance.

                          Year Purchased: 1977

                          About the owner: Still together after 45 years of marriage, Ingrid Wendt and Ralph Salisbury are both widely published authors and teachers of creative writing at all grade levels, from kindergarten through graduate school MFA programs. They live full time in Eugene, OR, where Ralph has retired from the University of Oregon. Ingrid continues to accept invitations to visit public and private schools, teaching poetry writing to students AND their teachers, through inservice programs around the country and abroad. Both Ingrid and Ralph have been 3-time Fulbright professors in Germany. Please visit their websites. Just enter 3 w's, each name in lower case, dot com.

                          Why the Owner Chose Seal Rock:
                          We could have purchased something in Florence or Newport, but they don't have the same kind of beautiful beach we do: rocks and tidepools and almost no other humans, ever! Also, we have great ease of access: just a one-minute walk from our door, and no steep steps. And -- amazingly -- there are less rainy days at the coast in winter than we have back home in Eugene. Eating out is easy here, too: just a 15-minute drive either north or south takes us to lots of great restaurants.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Where else could we gather delicious mussels at low tide, almost all year long? Where else could we gather huckleberries in autumn, for pancakes and muffins? Even in storms, our house is cozy and warm, and well-stocked with environmental magazines, novels, poetry, puzzles, games, and nature guides: books on constellations, Oregon birds, coastal wildflowers, fish, trees, rocks, sea vegetables -- even seafood cookbooks. And, on clear nights, there's the milky way!
