This home harkens back to the times of the family playing games and sitting around the radio. This is not a showcase home, nor a modern home (though it has modern conveniences), but that is the charm! It is an easy 8 minute walk into the heart of old town Florence. Enjoy many excellent restaurants, darling gift shops, antique shops, historical museum and event center.
Pets are ok! We love our dogs and hope that you will enjoy yours here too. There is plenty of unfenced yard for well-behaved dogs with a small enclosure for potty. Even the big dogs that are usually excluded-they are welcome here! We trust that you wouldn't want to travel with a crazed animal, so please be thoughtful about bringing a dog that may be destructive.
Original hardwood floors, wood walls, picture rail and period furniture remind you of days gone by. With all the modern furnishings, it has everything one could need including wifi internet and cable. Each bedroom has a queen bed, closet, wardrobe and dresser. The bathrooms are 3 piece complete with shower, and one in the original claw foot tub. The kitchen is fully equipped and contains a dishwasher, microwave, double oven and 2 burner stove. There is a very large and tall detached 2 car garage to store your toys and deep carport for another 2 vehicles but limited other parking.
Quiet neighborhood with few neighbors on a seldom used street, except for the church on Sunday, which owns the lot next to the home.
New owners bought the home in Nov. 2013 with plans to improve the home including refinishing the hardwood floor, remodeling the kitchen back to the original and exterior paint, but for now, it's very cozy.
Bring your walking shoes: old town Florence is 5 easy blocks away. Bring your atv's: there is plenty of riding area 8 minutes to the south. Bring your boat: fish the lakes, the Siuslaw River and of course the ocean; kayak or ski one of the many lakes all minutes away. Bring your bikes: mountain bike cummings creek or take the north fork siuslaw forest road 50 mile loop. By car: drive to honeyman state park, heceta head lighthouse, sea lion caves, hike the hobbit trail to the beach, crab at the crab dock on the south jetty, golf, horseback ride, rent a dune buggy, take a coastal biplane tour or go to the casino all within 15 minutes.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
