Galloping Getaway: vacation cottage on the Wilson River, your horse is optional. I purchased this home for my family to ride horses, but one would also think it is the perfect fishing getaway! Multiple river access points just blocks away; such as Siskeyville River access and boat launch 0.3 miles from house.
Adorable, comfortable vacation home across the street from Wilson River. Bring your own horse, set up for 6 horses. Experience the Tillamook County coastline like never before–on horseback. Gaze at wildlife and take in the scenic ocean views, all while trotting or better yet, galloping along the beach. You can stable your own horse at Galloping Get Away! Beaches close by allow for buggy access to drive your horse as well. Unlimited trail riding or hiking too, including equestrian only trails. Perfect for all outdoor activities and very close to beaches (10 miles), mountain trails, waterfalls, ATV trails, abundant fishing opportunities, with a boat launch 0.3 miles from home. Home is 7 miles East of Tillamook Oregon. If you don't have a horse you will enjoy yourself just as much.
Home is well furnished with high quality bedding and comfort is my first priority. All sheets are at least 600 thread count. Master bedroom (1st level) has one new queen bed (firm) with Marcia Baldwin art. Second bedroom (first level) has 2 high quality twin beds with art focus on racing legend Seattle Slew and his great grandson, Whiskey Slew (my horse). Upstairs there is an adorable loft room with plush King bed, twin memory foam pull out under the king, loveseat, small TV with DVD player, and if you have an infant, a crib. Additional roll out as well. Full kitchen will meet all your needs for 2 nights or 2 weeks. Small bar in kitchen, seats 3 and table that seats 4 in the front room. In back, a Mud/Laundry room with washer and dryer. With comfort in mind, there are pillows for everyone: memory foam, down, down alternative or plain poly filled. When it gets dark and you are forced to come inside from the great outdoor recreation, there is a flat screen TV with ROKU (online streaming with netflix and Hulu) and DVD player, Wi-Fi, games, phone with free long distance and books. House was remodeled in 2011/2012.
At night you can listen to the creek and river while watching the elk cross the yard as they come down to drink. The elk have made a fun trail through the thick forest behind the home.
For the horses: There are 6 paddocks, made from portable metal panels. Four of which are right next to each other; three are 12x12 and one slightly larger, 5th paddock is off on its own and is much larger, 6th paddock on its own and 12x12. Hot fence surrounds the paddocks for added security. Property is not otherwise fenced. There is a small manure cart, manure fork and 2 large water buckets; the rest of the supplies are to be brought by horse owners. There is no cover so bring your rain sheets. There is an outside light by the paddocks as well.
You must haul to beach/trails. Closest trails are about ½ mile and beach 10-12 miles.
Parking Ample car/truck parking and parking for small boat trailers. With larger trailers, I would think parking would be limited to two trucks with horse trailers; No street parking. Guests report gooseneck are VERY difficult to park here. Please check with large/multiple/5th wheel trailers prior to booking.

Wilson River Fishing: Wilson River Fishing
The Wilson River is one of Oregon's most popular rivers for fishing. It sports great runs of chinook salmon (both spring and fall run salmon), chum salmon and some coho salmon. The coho and chum salmon are currently only open to catch and release fishing but the spring and fall run chinook salmon are present in high enough numbers to support consumptive fishing.
The Wilson River parallels Oregon's Highway 6 from the top of the Oregon Coast Range to the city of Tillamook where the Wilson enters Tillamook Bay. All along the river is great bank access for Wilson River fishing and watching salmon spawn during their migration periods. Peak times for salmon are April - June for spring run chinook and October - December for fall run chinook, chum and coho.
For the famed run of winter steelhead, December - January for the hatchery run fish which are catch and keep and January - April for some broodstock steelhead (catch and keep) but mostly wild fish ranging upwards of 20 pounds!
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: I ride dressage and rescue a few horses. I currently have 18 well taken care of equines. When working on this home I tried to get everything possible that was made in the USA. Beds are made by hand in WA. Tile flooring made in the USA, etc.
Why the Owner Chose Tillamook: We love the Oregon coast and wanted a place where we could bring our horses anytime.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Hiking the elk trail each AM, listening to river and creek at night. Having a small property to plant flowers on. Being 15 minutes from riding on the beach and centrally located to experience deep sea fishing in Garibaldi, or running down south to see the sea lions.
