Property description

Nice house on 1.5 acres overlooking the Klamath River and the town of Orleans. Nothing between the house and the river. One neighbor on the same driveway (Wesley Lane) but about five acres owned by the family gives visitors privacy, yet convenience. The house was built in 1964 with the best materials and features. The large lawn area is ideal for small weddings or celebrations. There are fruit trees on the property and guests are welcome to harvest in-season fruit.

The house is within minutes of the Salmon River and great swimming, rafting and kayaking. It's about an hour on mostly paved roads to trailheads in the Marble Mt. and Trinity Alps wilderness areas.

Other pictures are available by contacting the owner.

Keywords: Ranch-style house built in 1964 overlooks the Klamath River with easy access to highway 96 in Orleans. Owner flexible. Property available and has been used for small weddings and similar events.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I've travelled all over the world and there's no place I'd rather be than at the property in Orleans. We purchased the property with my parents in 2000 from the 90+ year old woman who lived next door. The Gault family owned about 10 (or more) acres which included an airport when I was a kid. They subdivided it in the late 90s and we were fortunate enough to buy about seven acres and the house. My parents recently moved to Oregon so we've been using it as a vacation rental and a second home for us. I love sitting in the living room in the winter watching the fog slide in over the river. In the summer, the pool is a treat if you don't want to go to the rivers to swim. We thought about adding internet access but, it's nice not to have cell phone or internet access at times. There is a regular phone if you need to stay in touch. It is the perfect place to get away from it all. There's internet access in Orleans.

Why the Owner Chose Orleans:
We bought this property with my dad and stepmom with the intention of retiring here some day. My husband grew up in Orleans and I've always wanted to be a full-time resident. My stepmom's family homesteaded there in the early 1900s and the ranch is still in the family. My dad moved there in 1968 when he was working for PG&E and they were building the power lines to Somes Bar. There is something magical about the place and everyone who goes there agrees. Many of my siblings live within a mile and are willing to help make your trip enjoyable. There's also a lot of Native American history to appreciate in the area. A lot of our family members are of Yurok and Karuk decent and participate in ceremonies and celebrations nearby. The Old Timers parade and picnic is very similar to something I participated in a village in France in 2010. Father's Day weekend involves a parade that has to get Board of Supervisors and CalTrans permission to close the state highway. Everyone comes out to enjoy the parade that goes through town, then turns around and goes through town again. In the spring, there is a bird watching festival and there is always rafting and kayaking. Fishermen have been renting the place in October and November for years ... we've been booked solid but give us a try just in case.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We've had weddings and family events with dozens of people and it's also ideal for a couple or someone just wanting to get away from it all. The nearest commercial airport is in McKinleyville about 80 miles away ... the Arcata/Eureka airport. Redding and I-5 are about 150 miles away on the scenic Highways 299 and 96. Highway 96 has become a favorite for motorcycle enthusiasts in recent years. What I love about Orleans and the property ... there's nothing to do if that's what you choose. You don't feel like you're missing out on anything, yet if you want, you can hike, bike, kayak, fish, etc. You can also sit on the river bar and read a book for hours and likely won't see another person. You might see a bear or an eagle but they probably won't see you.
