About Lisa

The Ruddell family are Cranberry farmers with a sentiment for family, friends and entertaining. They have loved this property for a long while and now would like to share it with others.

Lisa purchased this estate in 1971

Why Lisa chose Southern Coast

The location of this school goes back to April 1, 1884 when first established as a result of the discovery of gold at Whiskey Run. A trail was used by the miners who walked from Coos Bay to the mouth of the Coquille River. This trail was called the 'Randolph Trail' originally, but after a wagon road was built by Coos County some years later, the name of the trail was changed to Seven Devils Road.

The school moved around. At first it was at Whiskey Run, but later moved to a building at Rocky Point.

Since the Ruddell's have owned it on the current property in the community of Randolph, it has been renovated and moved a few hundred feet to it's current location and re-assembled the classroom floor on the second story. It still has the original old clap-board siding.

What makes this estate unique

Convenient proximity to the world renown Bandon Dunes Golf Course, six miles to the quaint little hamlet of Bandon where there are shops, a wharf and many wonderful restaurants. You can walk for miles on the beaches when the tide is out exploring tide pools and many different kinds of wildlife, not to mention the Coquille Lighthouse and Bullards Beach State Park. Bandon Crossing Golf Club and Old Bandon Golf Links are also here for your golfing pleasure.

There is a Wild Game Park just south of town and much more to offer.

1.5 miles to Rocky Point boat ramp for Salmon fishing on the Coquille River.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The old school house has been meticulously restored. We had room to park our boat and trailer, and we were close to crabbing in both Charleston and Bandon. The kitchen was well stocked. We had everything we needed for our meals. The beds were comfortable and the suites spacious. And the views of the Coquille River are amazing. Hint for future stays: they have a no shoe policy in the house. Slippers are provided, but we were glad we had packed shoes that were easy to slip off. Negative: BBQ's need replacing. That did not detract from our experience, and we can't wait to stay again!

Beautiful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in one of the downstairs suites. It was very roomy. The bed was comfortable. The view of the river was really nice. It was so quiet there, we just spent alot of time relaxing. It was our first stay in Bandon, but will not be our last! Lisa was easy to work with and very informative. We enjoy history, and really liked staying in a redone old school house. They did a marvelous job with the decorating! We enjoyed using the enclosed sitting area, and ate our meals there. Thank you for sharing your vacation home!!

This was a beautiful and inviting property and was perfect for our Bandon Dunes golf adventure. This home had wonderful amenities, lots of room, a lovely view and a warm and inviting feel to it. We would highly recommend it for anyone going to Bandon and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there fact we greatly look forward to it. BTW the owners were great about responding to any questions or requests. FABULOUS!

No Better Experience to Be Found

  • 5 of 5

This place is the real deal! I am convinced there is no better rental than this property. It's a shame I can only give it 5 stars -- it deserves more than that! The owner seems to have tried to anticipate every need the traveler would have. The house was spacious, clean, well-designed, and well equipped. You will not go wrong by renting this property. It is almost like being at home away from home. Oh, the beds -- so comfortable! The view of the river was great as well. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the 6 days we spent here. Close to everything, especially Bandon Dunes, practically 5 minutes away. If we ever make it back to this area, this place would be the only one in which we would ever consider staying. Communication was quick and easy. I highly recommend your consideration of this wonderful property.

Road Trip Rest!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a suite with our 2 young girls after a road trip around Southern Oregon - it was a perfect spot to stay and recover! The huge backyard allowed my girls to get the wiggles out and the view of the river and all the boats was great for my husband and I to watch from sunrise to sunset. The suite was so nice, we couldnt believe how lucky we were to find it. The ammenities were wonderful, the beds were deluxe and the laundry facility was perfect for getting luggage repacked with clean clothes. We also used the BBQ for dinner one night and enjoyed dinner on the picnic table outside. We would definitley recommend a suite and will stay here again if we can get back to Bandon.

This home was the original 1917 Randolph School back in the 20's and 30's. It has been fully remodeled, moved 100 feet closer to the view and is very well appointed and incredibly peaceful. You won't want to leave! The famous 'Bandon Dunes Golf Resort' is just 3 miles west on Randolph Road. Cranberry Bogs, Bullards Beach, and miles and miles of beach less than 3 miles away. Bring your bikes, canoes, kayaks and of course your walking/beach shoes. So much to do!!! (If you want recommendations, just let us know!)
