About the Property
Cabin, 1 Bedroom + , 1 Bath, (Can sleep 2 adults one child)
Hideout in a coastal forest. Built in the early 60's as a fishing retreat, it is a perfect getaway for two adults. Completely remodeled, this cozy little cabin is located right on the river and in the heart of old logging history. With the mountains and river, it provides a perfect excuse to hike, bike, fish and explore. Minutes from Coos Bay, enjoy the beaches, local seafood, and a barbecue all in the same day.
Located on the East Fork of the Millicoma River, three miles from Golden and Silver Falls State Park in Coos County, and with the 92,000 acre Elliott State Forest and the 210,000 acre Weyerhaeuser Millicoma Tree Farm as neighbors, you'll enjoy the beautiful southern Oregon Coast Range at its best.
With a bright open kitchen and living area, it makes your stay comfortable and relaxing. Heated by a gas fireplace, it makes cold winter nights cozy and comfortable. The main bedroom boasts a comfortable queen bed, and in the winter warm cozy flannel sheets and down comforter. There is a small bunk area off of the main bedroom with one small built-in rustic bed.
With 80' of river frontage, watch river birds, otters, ospreys, salmon, chipmunks, quail, deer and the occasional elk, who venture down to enjoy the apple orchard. Build a fire in the fire pit on the river bank below the cabin's private deck and enjoy an evening under the stars. We even provide the wood!
During the summer months, when the river is at its lowest, enjoy a small island where blue heron, ducks, deer, otters, kingfishers, and other river wildlife come to explore. Right in front of the cabin, it makes morning coffee a whole lot more enjoyable.
THE FISH ARE HERE! Chinook salmon spawn in front of the cabin from November to January and steelhead fishing starts mid-December and runs through March. Trout season runs from May 26th through October 31st. In the fall experience the beautiful colors of nature and in the winter, perhaps a snowfall or two.
Spring brings lot's of early wildflowers like the Chocolate Lily, the white and pink Trillium, and the beautiful native rhododendrons in colors from white to deep purple. During the months of July through late September, fill your basket with fresh blackberries or spend time picking apples in our orchard. In October, visit the Mahaffey Ranch in the town of Allegany, and pick out that perfect pumpkin. Enjoy their corn maze and cannon, and the best apple cider in the state.
Open all year are the wonderful hiking trails at Golden and Silver Falls State Park. Hike through an old growth forest of Douglas Fir, Big Leaf Maple and Oregon Myrtlewood, while enjoying the scenic, beautiful and historic Glenn Creek. At a height of 240' Golden Falls is quite possibly the most impressive waterfall in the Coast Range of Oregon. Both falls are located within a rustic state park, adorned by a trail system and a nice picnic area at the trailhead. Originally the Allegany to Scottsburg Pack Trail, Silver Falls hiking path was a stage coach route from 1909 to 1912.
Featuring a fully equipped kitchen, and plenty of towels, pack your toothbrush, and those books you've wanted to read, and stay awhile. Whatever you choose, we know you'll enjoy your stay.
(We have provided several books on our area's local history, covering logging, legends and mysteries, along with vintage photos covering the original town of Allegany and Golden & Silver Falls. Hike above Golden Falls and explore the old homestead, making for an exciting day trip.)

Twenty-four miles from Coos Bay/North Bend, east up the Coos River past Allegany and the west fork of the Millicoma River - literally "where the sidewalk ends" - is one of the hidden gems of Coos County: Golden and Silver Falls. Their beauty aside, history lives here. Above Golden Falls a pack trail from the 1800's leads into the backcountry of Glenn Creek Valley and Scottsburg. Blasted out in 1901 by Glenn Creek homesteaders, the trail above Golden Falls became a "road" that was serviced by the county until 1958, when the last of the related homesteaders moved out of the valley. Silver Falls is considered a "veil" waterfall....MoreCollapse
The Oregon Dunes are a unique area of windswept sand that is the result of millions of years of wind, sun, and rain erosion on the Oregon Coast. These are the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America. Some dunes tower up to 150 meters above sea level, providing numerous recreational opportunities including off-road vehicle use, hiking, photography, fishing, and camping. The dunes are located on the Oregon Coast stretching approximately 40 miles north from the Coos River in North Bend to the Siuslaw River in Florence....MoreCollapse
Perched on rugged sandstone cliffs high above the ocean, Shore Acres State Park is an exciting and unexpected combination of beautiful natural and constructed features. Once the grand estate of pioneer timber baron Louis Simpson, Shore Acres features lushly planted gardens with plants and flowers from all over the world. Something is in bloom almost every day of the year. View some of the most spectacular winter storms and wave action on the Oregon Coast. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's eve, the park comes alive with over a quarter million lights. Popular hiking trails lead north and south from the park. Day-use fee....MoreCollapse
Symmetrical in form, the Myrtlewood tree is a beauty of nature. Their height can reach 100 feet, and trunk diameter four feet or more. Growing on a slender ribbon of land along the Pacific coast between the Cascades and the ocean, this evergreen beauty, flourishes best in the counties of Coos, Curry and Western Douglas of Southwestern Oregon. The Myrtlewood is found only here and in the Holy Land. Trees with trunks of four-foot diameter are estimated to be about 500 years old....MoreCollapse

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We enjoy fishing, gardening, and hiking. My husband has been fishing here since he was eight years old. We both enjoy the awesome seclusion of this area. This picture, taken in front of the cabin, shows my husband, Tom, with a fresh caught steelhead. Caught right alongside the cabin, it weighed out at 14 lbs and 32''. Another great place to fish for steelhead, is at Nesika Park, located just three minutes from the cabin!
Why the Owner Chose Coos Bay, OR, USA:
Tom grew up alongside this little cabin. When it came up for sale in 2010, we couldn't think of anything better than to open it to family, friends, and travelers. Tom's family has been a part of this wonderful valley since the 50's. Never crowded, it is a great place to kick back and relax. The weather is milder here and we don't get that cold wind or fog off the ocean. This is a rural area, but also a safe and fun place to bring your family. Mine grew up here.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You can really enjoy all of the seasons here. We look forward to the summer barbecues, swimming, and just being outside. Fall is wonderful with all the trees changing colors and the salmon traveling up river to spawn. One of the best places to see this is right in front of this little cabin. Winter brings wild mushroom picking, and the rain, which raises the river and makes Golden and Silver Falls so spectacular. Fishing is one of my family's favorite things to do, so we live where they can do that. Even our five-year old Great-Granddaughter fishes with her Papa. In Spring everything is green, the birds start to nest, and the mountains are covered with beautiful morning mist.
