The Elk River is a Wilderness area and Fall and Spring are noted for fabulous fishing on the pristine Elk River. A serine spot as well, since only drift boats are allowed! The Fish Hatchery is a short walk from our riverhouse where boats can be launched and fish can be viewed.

Salmon spawning is happening there late Fall and is a great chance to view large fish as they return to the hatchery. Early June the hatchery hosts free fishing for children up to the age of 10. Three miles up from our riverhouse, the Elk River is spectacular after the rains have replentished it. It is aqua-marine in color~ an incredible sight up the canyon! And there are numerous waterfalls as well!

Cape Blanco Lighthouse is just 15 minutes away and offers an awesome view of the Pacific ocean plus interesting facts about the history of the lighthouse.

Port Orford marina offers a possible glimps at migrating whales in Spring and sealions throughout the year too! And always a view of the picturesque Oregon coastline!

The Animal Park, where one can actually touch wild animals! is just a 20 minute drive north.

Golf at Bandon Crossings is just beyond the Animal Park and Banon Dunes is a 40 minute drive along tree lined 101.

Shore Acres Botanical Gardens are located 1 1/2 hours to the north out of Charlston harbor. Thousands of lights during the Christmas season create a fantasy land as they glow in the night. The shoreline there is very interesting as well as the history of the Simpson family who originally owned the gardens.

South 30 minutes, at Rogue River, there are exhillarating jet boat rides up that beautiful river. Continuing south along a magnificent coastline you will arrive to the Giant Redwood Forest. This drive takes about 3 hours, but if you have the time to venture out, it is an awesome sight.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We discovered the beautiful Elk River Wilderness area back in 2003, when we purchased an unfinished cabin. One of our passions is renovating propertys and putting our interior design skills to use. So, we turned that unfinished structure into a unique family retreat. It has been the site of our annual family gathering, which included some years as many as 40 attendees! The property turned from a quaint cabin on 13 acres, to a RV/Tent campground with night time gatherings around the bonfire to cook up S'mores and share great stories! And we mustn't forget the many fun times spent swimming, lounging, and fishing at the boat launch located near the Elk River Fish Hatchery! We live just an hour away, so we can enjoy it even for just a night. And other family menbers travel from the Portland area several times a year to just enjoy the peace and quiet and beauty of both the river and the beach.

Why the Owner Chose Port Orford, OR, USA:
We have lived near the Southern Oregon Coast since 1973. Discovering the amazing beauty of the Elk River was a hidden treasure that we had missed out on for many years. Once we discovered it's aqua-marine pristine waters set within the beautiful tree lined canyon where waterfalls abound! it was as if we had traveled far away from home, but it was just an hour away all along! All we needed to do was to take a drive and enjoy the adventure of discovering what life has to offer. So now we want to make that experience available to others. And, if you love the beach, it's just a quick 15 minute drive to the magnificent Port Or ford coastline. Here, you can enjoy awesome ocean views, go for long walks on the beach, fly kites, or maybe even get lucky enough to see a seal or whale poke their head up to take a peek at you! Also, if you love fresh seafood, stop by the marina and see what the 'catch of day' is!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Most of the the river frontage where much of the fishing is done on the Elk is privately owned, which limits water access. Our River House gives us and our guests the freedom to enjoy the river right out the back door! Plus, it is just 1/4 mile from the public boat launch at the fish hatchery! The spacious living area creates the perfect gathering space for family and friends to share meaningful time together.... Forming memories that last a lifetime! And reliving those exciting fish stories about the 'big one that got away' or showing the photos of the one who was not so lucky! During the fishing season it is quite entertaining watching all the boats drift by. Since the river does not allow motor boats, the serenity is never disturbed.
