Other than the weather our stay was great. After fishing all day the home was relaxing with great views. TV/internet/WiFi all worked well. Chris the owner was very helpful with anything we needed. We’ll definitely stay there again. Best, Joel

A wonderful get away spot.

My friends and I had a marvelous time at this home. The home is well maintained, clean and spacious. The art work fills the house with color and some whimsy. We are all very much refreshed and invigorated from this journey.

Perfect solitude with a wonderful view.

  • 5 of 5

Battle Rock House was the perfect place to start our tour of the CA & OR coastal areas. The house is wonderful with windows overlooking the coastline. It is on the forested hillside & is very private except for the occasional curious deer. We enjoyed the huge deck and it was hard to make ourselves leave. We were comfortable & felt right at home. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Battle Rock House.

Port Orford's lodging and dining

  • 5 of 5

The Hawthornes' Battle Rock House and Red Fish Grill provided us very comfortable and spacious lodging and a very fine dining experience. Our short stay in lovely Port Orford to enjoy sea kayaking and the beaches could not have been more enjoyable!!

Beautiful house with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Battle Rock house was our last stop after a whirlwind 2 week trip in Oregon with our older kids. It was so welcoming and comfortable! The house itself is beautiful with tons of windows looking out to the ocean. The big deck in the back was a great place to unwind and listen to the waves. We had two great diners at Red Fish as well which is also owned by the homeowners. We look forward to returning to Port Orford - it was one of our favorite spots in Oregon.

Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly what the photos added bonus was being surrounded by all the art that was created by Chris, Julie and their son. It was private, yet you could walk to town in 5 minutes. I highly recommend this home.
