Comfortable for a family, nice peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Owners were very responsive and awesome to work with. The dock and river were great entertainment when we weren't at the beach. How the house is situation makes you feel like you are out in the country with no one around, even though there are close neighbors on both sides. Close to town and the grocery store which was very convenient. Beds were super comfy, as was the living room furniture.

Nice get away

  • 5 of 5

Three teenagers and myself enjoyed this home along the river. We fished and enjoyed the cows on the other side of the river. Nice and close to everything and yet felt like we were far away from it all too. We would absolutely stay here again. Thank you for making your home so enjoyable. The kitchen was brilliantly supplied with seasonings, oil, and all sorts of amazing cooking utensils to boot.

Cozy, relaxing & convenient

  • 5 of 5

The house was easy to find and in a good location. I traveled with my 3 grandkids. A little after check in time Rob called to make sure we got in ok and made sure everything was good. I appreciated that. The kids had a blast on the dock. The seal going by hunting for fish was fantastic to watch. Coffee on the deck was very enjoyable for me. There are 2 beaches not far from the house. The beds were comfortable. The house, linens and towels were clean. There was everything we needed to cook. I would love to come back and stay.

Very comfortable home, dock is very nice to sit at and fish or just enjoy

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed a couple times at this home, I love the new beds, and all items a family needs are provided. I love the new bbq on the deck. I love the added benches down on the dock. Our family spent many hours there on our stay, the weather was beautiful. Our family recommends your home all year long to others, as it is nice to stay not just at Salmon time. Our family has been fishing on this river for over 50 years, its so nice not to have a lot of stairs to climb. Makes it nice for someone who has hard time with stairs, or may be disabled.

Thank you

Car: recommended

Our family retreat is located on the Nestucca River with your own private dock and is less than 1 mile from the beach and only 2 miles from Cape Kiwanda. Enjoy hours of tranquility watching the river and the dairy cows from our beautiful deck or the kitchen table. Minutes away is a long walk on the beach, a magical climb up Cape Kiwanda, an award winning brewery (The Pelican Brewpub) and many excellent restaurants and shops. Outdoor activities include fishing, crabbing, clamming, surfing, hang gliding, watching (or charter) the dory boats launch from the sands, jet skiing on the waves of Tierra Del Mar; whale watching, cycling and hiking. The Nestucca River is 'a real gem of an all-around stream' according to Madelynne Sheehan in Fishing In Oregon . Anglers fish for Fall and Spring Chinook, Cutthroat Trout, and Steelhead on this beauty of a river just out your back door. We are located 10 minutes from 4 wheeling at Sandlake, 30 minutes south of the Tillamook Cheese Factory and Blue Heron Cheese and Wine or 30 minutes north of Lincoln City which offers a day of shopping at the outlet mall or a night of gambling and entertainment at Chinook Winds Resort & Casino. This home is only 75 minutes from Salem and 90 to 120 minutes from the Portland area.
