The house is right on the beach and at certain times of the year you can watch the migrating whales right out in front of the house.
If you like Dungeness crab, you have excellent crabbing right in Waldport in Alsea Bay. On clear nights the sky is filled with millions of stars with no city lights to spoil the view. A few hours drive from Portland and perfectly located between Newport and Florence. With great restaurants, shopping, an aquarium, bountiful amounts of beautiful beaches to explore.
