Ten windows fill the suite with light, and provide a picturesque view of the forest and our tidal inlet off the Alsea River where it meets the Alsea Bay. We have installed a keypad lock which opens with a pin number you choose yourself for safety and convenience.
FREE KAYAKS (one 3-person & two singles) & two 15 1/2' CANOES big enough for the family with life jackets in all sizes are available to take out every day at high tide. The design of the kayaks provides great stability, making them extremely safe and easy to use for even novice kayakers, whether fishing or kayaking. The canoes maneuver easily, and have both youth and adult paddles. Launch right from our property when the tide is in!
When the tide is out, wildlife visitors can often be seen, depending on the time of year. Most common are blue herons, egrets, grebes, mallards, eagles and we had many pairs of mated Canada geese nesting right by our property.
You also are welcome to use our crab traps and clamming gear. Or you can borrow our beach chairs, beach towels, large beach umbrella, kites and beach toys, portable propane barbecue with cooking utensils, portable fire pit and more, take in the beauty of any of the gorgeous, unspoiled beaches minutes away that stretch for miles. Go explore the tide pools or go beachcombing for seashells and agates. Or take in some amazing storm watching, depending on the weather.
