This area of the Oregon Coast is home to beautiful scenery coupled with rocky coastline as well as long flat sandy beaches. There are fantastic hiking opportunities as well as breathtaking scenic vistas in the Cape Perpetua area a short distance to the South. There are three lighthouses to explore in the area including the picturesque Heceta Head Lighthouse.
In Newport to the North you will find the Oregon Coast Aquarium and the OSU Hatfield Marine Science Center. Both are an excellent tour for adults and well as children.
For those in pursuit of crustacean delights, hence the name 'Crabbin' Cabin', the Alsea Bay is home to excellent crabbing. There are crabs rings at the house that you are welcome to use. The best place for shore crabbing is at the Port of Alsea Crabbing Dock. Small aluminum boats can also be rented there to hopefully increase your harvest. Just remember to have the proper license and don't cook the crabs in the house. Clamming is also good with the proper tide. This just touches the surface of all there is to do in the area.
Year Purchased: 2004
About: We are your basic middle class family that has always enjoyed the Coast. While our kids were growing up we would spend as much time as possible tent camping on the Northern California Coast. As we aged, the backs got sorer and the tents colder, etc. so we finally became 'house campers'. We also moved our 'camping' farther North. After taking a vacation trip along the Oregon Coast to look at places to rent we found Waldport and fell in love with the area. It's just a wonderful place to relax and spend time and all the people we have met, both in business and pleasure, have been very friendly and helpful.
Why Waldport: After five or six years of renting houses and vacationing in Walport with our family, we decided that we wanted to have our own house here. So, in 2004 we found this house in the middle of construction and commited to the purchase. It was an adventure to say the least. Ordering furniture and appliances to be delivered after the completion of construction, building other pieces of furniture ourselves, getting everthing gathered up and hauling it almost 400 miles and timing it for the day we took possession. It was an experience that we won't forget. Most of all, it was fun and here we are today. We are proud of what we have done and believe that we did a pretty good job of decorating and making this a home, not just a house. We hope that you will think so too. So come on, and give us a try. You won't be disappointed.
