About Peter & Kathy Schork

Peter and kathy built this ranch home in 2010. Kathy is a native Oregonian, born in pdx! Peter is from AZ. Both love the Oregon coast . Kathy grew up going to the coast on a regular basis with her family of 4 sisters, aunts, uncles, and dog.

Peter & Kathy Schork purchased this house in 2010

Why Peter & Kathy Schork chose Nehalem

We love this area , as it is a very quiet, safe neighborhood on the bay. The neighbors watch over our home and there are flat streets (no hills) so easy for kids to bike and play. My sister has a home just one door down. The bay is peaceful and the elk graze by the bay regularly . Manzanita is close with ocean access there. Shopping is in both directions to north (Cannon b. and Seaside), and to the south (Tillamook- Fred Meyer) . Boating, clamming, fishing, crabbing, hiking , surfing (Oswald is the spot) and shopping , all close by.

What makes this house unique

Peaceful place on one of the many bays in the area. Also a wildlife refuge area, as we see elk, beaver, and bald eagles often down by the bay. Our home is very open, airy, light , bright, and roomy! Not the old, damp, dark, musty smelling, cramped beach cabins I grew up staying in! No street lighting in this neighborhood, so on clear nights , you can see a million stars in the sky!

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us. Plenty of room, comfortable and inviting. Everything we could have ever needed was provided. Close enough to town and the beach, but far enough away to make it quiet and comfortable. Grandkids loved it!
