In 1934, Al and Gladys Pierce bought the Neskowin Inn and campground. At the Inn, Gladys did all the cooking for as many as 34 guests. Room and meals cost $3-5/day (single) or $3.75-6.50/day (double). She also managed the campground, just across Hawk Creek from this house, never turning anyone away. For campers' convenience, she provided a large pleasant kitchen with an enormous stove along one side, and tables and booths by screened windows where families could eat together.
Though the Inn and campground are long gone, the essence of Gladys's hospitality lives on in this house. It rests in a sheltered place, right along Hawk Creek; a snug house, it can be opened for ocean breezes in the summer, while providing a warm, comfortable, well-insulated place for watching the famed winter storms. Much of the large backyard is fenced for privacy, while still allowing an easy walk out of the yard onto the beach access. Being close to Hawk Creek Cafe and the general store means you only need to take a short walk in the morning to get a newspaper, pick up a cup of coffee, or eat breakfast.
When Gladys built this house in the mid-1950s as her personal home, she often invited her niece to come for vacations at the beach. Her niece invited the mother of the current owners. She fell in love with Neskowin and bought the house in 1991. Today, her children invite you to make this your vacation home in beautiful Neskowin. Enjoy the beach, the hills, the sun and the rain, Proposal Rock and Cascade Head.
Experience what we already know: your heart will be blessed here.

About: We are three siblings--an orthopedic surgeon, a radiologist, and an attorney. This was our mother's home for many years. Our mother loved books, and among her varied careers, she was a librarian. That is why her collection of fiction books is shelved alphabetically by author and her collection of nonfiction is shelved (roughly) according to the Dewey Decimal System. Our mom loved mysteries, so her small library includes a nice selection of Agatha Christie, Naio Marsh, Tony Hillerman, Dick Francis, Louis L'Amour, and many others. When she moved away to be closer to us, she decided to make her home available to Neskowin visitors. We enjoy this place so much, we have kept it in the family. Our own children love visiting here--from the time they were young, through their teenage years, and, now, as adults.
Why Neskowin: The niece of the woman who originally built this home was our mother's close friend. During our mother's visits to see her friend, she fell in love with Neskowin, and she decided to make this her home. While Neskowin is a charming beach village, it is close enough to a wide variety of shopping (including Tanger Outlets) and other activities in Lincoln City (8 miles).
