About Leslie

Shore Leave was the retirement home of Brigadier General Benjamin King. He served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam. General King was qualified in many aircraft including the T-33, the supersonic F-106 Delta Dart, A-1E, B-26, C-47, AT-28, P-38, P-51, P-80 and others. He flew combat in three wars and accumulated more than 6,000 hours of flying time, including 1,146 combat hours logged in 400 combat missions. His decorations included the Silver Star, Legion of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross with three oak leaf clusters, Air Medal with 24 oak leaf clusters, Purple Heart and the French Croix de Guerre. Four F-15s from the Oregon Air National Guard, Klamath Falls, Oregon gave BG King a missing man fly-by in his hometown of Florence, Oregon on 20 October 2004. It was a tribute to one of our great warriors. (I happened to be on Hwy 101 that day, and it's something those of us who witnessed it will never forget.)

You'll find some amazing historical items, and wonderful art from his travels around the world as his heirs wanted to share this with everyone. The amazing part is he could have retired anywhere in the world, and he chose Florence, spend some time here, and we think you'll understand why as well.

Guestbook comments from the manager

There was plenty of room for us all, and the accommodations were quite nice! Great views of the water, access to the beach, close to town...this place has it all!

"Shore Leave" is just that.

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean, neat, comfortable and well appointed. Located directly on the river you can watch the boats come and go all day from the deck or walking along the sand beach when the tide is out. We hope to stay at "shore leave" again.

A peaceful retreat

  • 4 of 5

I am not super fond of staying in vacation rentals that are overly decorated with personal belongings. However, this place was for the most part, an exception. The story of the owner and his family is sweet and the memorabilia is interesting. I do wish there were not so many personal portraits watching over you in the master bedroom. But the expansive river views made up for it. We stayed 4 nights. The kitchen is well equipped. The living room is a nice gathering space. And the views were peaceful and pleasant. And just a short drive to Old Town and the beach.

Great time on the Siuslaw

  • 5 of 5

Shore leave was perfect for our family get-together--the open living area provided a place to comfortably come together and even with the windy weather the windows gave us a feel for being outdoors. The side deck also provided shelter from the wind. We would definitely return for another "shore leave"!

Perfect Location & a Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at 'Shore Leave' - the river front deck was great for relaxation - the views & sunsets were just gorgeous. Spacious floor plan and huge master suite with deck access - nicely appointed kitchen - plenty of room for a large family / group but just the two of us thoroughly enjoyed the home. Quiet cul de sac location & nice stairs leading down to the river - couldn't have been better! Owners binder of local area & dining tips came in handy as well. Thus is a beautiful home in a fantastic location - we hope to be back!
