Just 18 miles up Oregon Scenic Highway 38 from Reedsport, is the historic town of Scottsburg. One of Oregons oldest communities, there is not much here now except for a number of homes along the banks of the Umpqua River. The temperature is often a good ten degrees warmer than the coast, and with the towering cliffs of pine trees, and the river flowing peacefully by, you will realise this is a very special place. This charming cabin has a rustic log interior. The cabin has a full kitchen with all the modern amenities, a full bathroom and a woodstove. There are two bedrooms - the master with queen bed, a desk, and storage. The second room is smaller with two twin beds. If you have more than 4 guests there are air mattresses that can be used. The cottage is set about 150 feet from the River on over an acre of property. The cabin shares the property with a main house that is not rented out. Please note you are not able to see the river completely from the cabin, as the lot has clusters of trees that provide shade. This is a perfect place to have a private getaway or bring the kids for swimming and fishing in the river during the day and campfires in the evening. (Fire ban in place - please see below) The river is tidal, and this is the last stretch of the Umpqua you can get a motor boat to. Beyond the bridge it is too rocky, and shallow. There is a dock, and boat ramp just two miles away. We can provide referrals to a number of excellent local fishing guides if you would like to try your hand. Our dock is in the river during summer months only. Its the perfect place to sit, and soak up the sun, or jump off into the river to cool down. Scottsburg is less than twenty minutes to west of Elkton, where you can go wine tasting, visit the Butterfly Pavilion and Education Center or tour Ft Umpqua - a replica of the Hudson Bay Trading Company fur trading outpost. Scottsburg is 20 minutes east from Reedsport. Activities in Reedsport and Winchester Bay include; Dean’s Creek Elk Viewing, Umpqua Discovery Center, Umpqua Lighthouse State Park, ocean fishing, crabbing, sand dunes, and much more!! There is a general store in Scottsburg just a short drive away,or the nearest shops are in Reedsport. Please note that AT&T does not work here. Verizon, and Sprint seem to. We love it because we leave our phones off, and our troubles goodbye. There is room to park your RV, boat trailer etc. No cable TV but we have a good selection of videos, books, or family games. Please note that no pets are allowed at this time. If you have any further questions about the area, or property please do not hesitate to email or call. Thanks, John and Kaycee
*******PLEASE NOTE - effective June 23rd 2014 until further notice - There is a fire ban in the area due to the extremely dry conditions. No campfires are allowed.

About the owner: Our family have lived on this river for 25 years, and we grew up here. When this property came on the market for the first time in 50 years, we new we had to make a move. With a stream running through the property, tall trees, and the river front location, we love this place as a getaway from our busy lives in Portland. We have spent the last year preparing to rent the cabin, and have added a new roof, and fixtures and furnishings. We do hope you will enjoy this special part of Oregon as much as we do, and look forward to welcoming you to Camp Umpqua.
