About Michael Flanagan

We are truly blessed to be the stewards of this beautiful seashore retreat. This house has an amazing character to it that blends perfectly with the great beauty and power of the ocean.

We have done all the maintenance and renovations to this home personally since we have owned it. We continue to improve it every year.

Michael Flanagan purchased this house in 2003

Why Michael Flanagan chose Southern Coast

The Southern Oregon coast is a truly magical place. There are underwater caves that are only visible at very low full moon tides. Pistol River has some of the best wind surfing/sail boarding conditions in the world. There are hikes along the Rogue river and Pacific Crest trail by the ocean that are incredibly beautiful. The Port Orford Headlands have trails that go along the ocean where you can stop and watch seals swim around the coves.

Otter point is a 5 min drive from Ravenshores: It is an ocean cliffs lookout and or 'hike to the beach' site that is a spectacular 'must see' while you are here.

There are so many beautiful places to visit here and they are all within a 5 -30 min drive from ravenshores.

What makes this house unique

The outside setting of this house is very large and totally private. There are large mature spruce, madrone, and pine trees that make up a private forest with short trails. Miles of pristine beach are a 3 minute walk from the house.

This house has a magical feel to it. You can always see and hear the ocean. It is alive with the spirit of nature and the energy of the forest and ocean. The stars at night look brighter and bigger here. Sometimes you can watch the full moon set on the ocean, but it is usually very early in the AM.

Ravenshores is very private you have the forest all around you that blocks the north wind but you have a south view of the ocean.

beautiful home, hate to leave

  • 5 of 5

Ravenshores is outstanding. Hands down, the place with the best views and setting we’ve been. Ocean, trees, birds, privacy, deck, and sunsets. Really, it’s that good.

This house is beautiful, extremely comfortable, and exactly as advertised. Yes the decorating is funky, as you can see in the pictures but we loved it. The house is very clean. It has fabulous views, and you hear the surf (1/8th mile away across 101) from the deck. We just spent a month at the house and really don’t want to leave. We love to cook and are tough critics in the kitchen/food department, but the kitchen is well-equipped and works well with the living room/great room. You’re all part of the cooking scene! We also love to go out to eat, but have rarely made it because this house is just too comfortable and night after night, we’d rather just stay here.

There are amazing places to hike in the area. Our favorite was Samuel Boardman Whaleshead Beach to Thompson Bridge, with amazing ocean views, sand dunes, waterfalls, streams, deep woods, tree tunnels, all of it in just 5.5 miles round trip! There is also great birding (Arizona beach), phenomenal trees at Schrader, and tons of wildlife all around (Elk, Deer, Otters,…). So much beauty all around here. It’s enchanted. We hope to come back, for another very long restful stay.

Great views, comfortable house, close to beaches.

  • 5 of 5

We have a long history of renting houses and have pretty much seen it all. This house is in the top 3. The owner runs a tight ship, is very responsive, and obviously cares about his home and your experience. Good quality, clean sheets and towels, comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen, and comfortable furnishings. Beautiful views from the upstairs and you can hear the ocean from the property. Access to fantastic beaches all up and down the Oregon coast. If you are looking for a quiet, private retreat for exploring the coast this is it.

The property was beautiful and surrounded in nature with a view of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at the vacation house. The house was decorated with lively colors and creative artifacts. It was a big house, a lot of space, big windows and many of them. Our small dog enjoyed running around the wrapped around deck and property. There is a big friendly dog that visits from one of the nearby properties, so watch your step when walking around, because the dog does use the property for his bathroom duties. The steep gravel driveway will be worked on and was stated is a future project to be fixed. We will definetly be back for our future vacations with our families.

Ravenshores is a great house with a wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

The house is large and comfortable. The decor is very eclectic and unique. The beds (at least the three used) were very comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, however you need to bring your own coffee filters. There is large deck with a picnic table and benches along with 4 chairs. Since the place has at least 6 beds, it might we wise to bring a few folding chairs with you. The road up to the house is pretty steep. We have a Prius and I had a very difficult time as my wheels kept spinning. I had to back down several times to get a good run at it. It is not paved and bit bumpy. There is plenty of parking once up top. The view is spectacular.

The only downside is the house is about 8 miles north of Gold Beach so it takes a bit to get into town. We did not try the walk to the beach as described since walking on steep uneven trails is not something I do well.

There are TVs in each bedroom and none in the living/dining area. No DVD players that I could find so the only option is Netflix. The downside if you have a houseful and want to watch a movie, you have to crowd into one of the bedrooms.

Bottom line I would stay there again and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind being that far out of town.

Location was beautiful and the house was quaint, clean, and comfortable. The property manager was extremely helpful and even text us key information late at night because we forgot to bring the info with us. We will stay here again soon!
