Property description

This home was built in 1930 and sits back on the property from the street, across from Mingus Park where you can hear the fountains in the lake and the music during events in the park. The fall concerts are every Tuesday night in September. There are restaurants downtown and a Farmers Market every Wednesday, May through October. Shore acres is a favorite place on the coast for its gorgeous botanical garden and pond right on the ocean and during the holidays from the day after Thanksgiving through New Year's Day the lighting display through out is incomparable to most. Beachcombing is a favorite of a lot of visitors and locals, searching for vintage glass floats and shells is relaxing and good exercise while experiencing the beauty of our ocean and its beaches. The dunes recreational area is fun for those wanting to ride the dunes and you can rent horses in Bandon to ride on the beach.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Tom and I with our 5 daughters moved to North Bend in 1991 from Southern California. We recently decided to turn one of our long term rentals into a vacation rental, as the location and the home seemed perfect for that. We hope you love staying at the cottage and exploring the area as much as we do. Welcome!

Why the Owner Chose Coos Bay, OR, USA:
We had looked for a small home in the Mingus Park area and felt lucky when this one became available to purchase. It is a sweet 1930's place and being by the park makes it even better.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Being close to Mingus Park and near the downtown Coos Bay Area, this a quiet yet convenient location. The beaches and Charleston boat harbor is not a far drive, and coming home to a warmer less foggy space is nice to finish off your day at the beach. The covered patio in back and propane grill is nice for outdoor meals.
