Property description

The Little Cabin on the River is licensed through the Coos County Public Health Department, State of Oregon, License #54468.

Hideout in a coastal forest. Built in the early 60's as a fishing retreat, it is a perfect getaway for two to four guests. Completely remodeled, this cozy little cabin is located right on the river and in the heart of old logging history. With the mountains and river, it provides a perfect excuse to hike, bike, fish and explore. Minutes from Coos Bay, enjoy the beaches, local seafood, and a barbecue all in the same day.

With a bright open kitchen and living area, it makes your stay comfortable and relaxing. Heated by a gas fireplace, it makes cold winter nights cozy and comfortable. The main bedroom boasts a comfortable queen bed, and in the winter warm cozy flannel sheets and down comforter. There is a small bunk area off of the main bedroom with two built-in rustic bunk beds.

With 80' of river frontage, watch river birds, otters, ospreys, salmon, chipmunks, quail, deer and the occasional elk, who venture down to enjoy the apple orchard. Build a fire in the fire pit on the river bank below the cabin's private deck and enjoy an evening under the stars. We even provide the wood.

During the summer months, when the river is at its lowest, enjoy a small island where blue heron, ducks, deer, otters, kingfishers, and other river wildlife come to explore. Right in front of the cabin, it makes morning coffee a whole lot more enjoyable.

Located on the East Fork of the Millicoma River, three miles from Golden and Silver Falls State Park in Coos County, and with the 92,000 acre Elliott State Forest and the 210,000 acre Weyerhaeuser Millicoma Tree Farm as neighbors, you'll enjoy the beautiful southern Oregon Coast Range at its best.

THE FISH ARE HERE! Chinook salmon spawn in front of the cabin from November to January and steelhead fishing starts mid-December and runs through March. Trout season runs from May 26th through October 31st. In the fall experience the beautiful colors of nature and in the winter, perhaps a snowfall or two.

Spring brings lot's of early wildflowers like the Chocolate Lily, the white and pink Trillium, and the beautiful native rhododendrons in colors from white to deep purple. During the months of July through late September, fill your basket with fresh blackberries or spend time picking apples in our orchard. In October, visit the Mahaffey Ranch in the town of Allegany, and pick out that perfect pumpkin. Enjoy their corn maze and cannon, and the best apple cider in the state.

Open all year are the wonderful hiking trails at Golden and Silver Falls State Park. Hike through an old growth forest of Douglas Fir, Big Leaf Maple and Oregon Myrtlewood, while enjoying the scenic, beautiful and historic Glenn Creek. At a height of 240' Golden Falls is quite possibly the most impressive waterfall in the Coast Range of Oregon. Both falls are located within a rustic state park, adorned by a trail system and a nice picnic area at the trailhead. Originally the Allegany to Scottsburg Pack Trail, Silver Falls hiking path was a stage coach route from 1909 to 1912.

Featuring a fully equipped kitchen, and plenty of towels, pack your toothbrush, and those books you've wanted to read, and stay awhile. Whatever you choose, we know you'll enjoy your stay.

(We have provided several books on our area's local history, covering logging, legends and mysteries, along with vintage photos covering the original town of Allegany and Golden & Silver Falls. Hike above Golden Falls and explore the old homestead, making for an exciting day trip.)

SPEND A DAY IN THE WOODS WITH A FORESTER: Explore Coos County's first guided tour through a working forest with a professional forester. Bring your kids and your questions. FREE July through September on Wednesdays from 1:00 - 4:30 p.m. Free transportation provided departing from the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce. RSVP 541-269-0215 or toll free 1-800-824-8486.

    Golden & Silver Falls (End of Hwy 241) View on map

    Twenty-four miles from Coos Bay/North Bend, east up the Coos River past Allegany and the west fork of the Millicoma River - literally "where the sidewalk ends" - is one of the hidden gems of Coos County: Golden and Silver Falls. Their beauty aside, history lives here. Above Golden Falls a pack trail from the 1800's leads into the backcountry of Glenn Creek Valley and Scottsburg. Blasted out in 1901 by Glenn Creek homesteaders, the trail above Golden Falls became a "road" that was serviced by the county until 1958, when the last of the related homesteaders moved out of the valley. Silver Falls is considered a "veil" waterfall.

These are the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America. Some dunes tower up to 150 meters above sea level, providing numerous recreational opportunities including off-road vehicle use, hiking, photography, fishing, and camping. The dunes are located on the Oregon Coast stretching approximately 40 miles north from the Coos River in North Bend to the Siuslaw River in Florence.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I enjoy fishing, gardening, and hiking. I have been fishing here since I was eight years old. I just enjoy the awesome seclusion of this area. This picture, taken in front of the cabin, shows myself with a fresh caught steelhead. Caught this year, right alongside the cabin, it weighed out at 14 lbs and 32''. Another great place to fish for steelhead, is at Nesika Park, located just three minutes from the cabin!

Why the Owner Chose Coos Bay:
I grew up alongside this little cabin. When it came up for sale in 2010, I couldn't think of anything better than to open it to family, friends, and travelers. My family has been a part of this wonderful valley since the 50's. Never crowded, it is a great place to kick back and relax. The weather is milder here and we don't get that cold wind or fog off the ocean. This is a rural area, but also a safe and fun place to bring your family. Mine grew up here.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I really enjoy all of the seasons here. I look forward to the summer barbecues, swimming, and just being outside. Fall is wonderful with all the trees changing colors and the salmon traveling up the river to spawn. One of the best places to see this is right in front of this little cabin. Winter brings wild mushroom picking and the rain, which raises the river and makes Golden and Silver Falls so spectacular. Fishing is one of my most favorite hobbies, so I live where I can do that. In Spring everything is green, the birds start to nest, and the mountain mist is beautiful.
