We presently live in California but plan to retire to this house at some point! Meanwhile we feel that others should be able to enjoy it and we invite people who respect property, enjoy quiet, the outdoors and clean air to visit!
The Owner purchased this house in 2010
Oregon abounds with natural, unspoiled beauty. We love being near the ocean, around the trees and among the berry bushes (which we have made wine and jams with). The community is serene and coupled with the local residents, a true piece of Americana! The river is close by and walks down along it are sure to soothe even the most restless.
The house is easy to maintain, open and inviting. The hot tub is a perfect end to a busy day. The kitchen is a cook's dream. A boat launch is almost across the street. Plenty of interesting areas to simply walk and inhale the clean forest air!
Stayed there for a week in June (finally had time to write a review!!). Couldn't have asked for a more comfortable place with such pleasant, comfortable surroundings. Less than an hour to coast & close to some hiking areas we wanted to explore. Clean, spacious, comfortable home with super-comfortable beds in charming town of Elkton (take a stop at the community butterfly garden & fort - students from school staff it). Newer washer/dryer, beautifully decorated, and the home even had a piano that I tinkered on which was a plus! A short 1 block walk to Tomaselli's - fantastic salads, sandwiches, etc. (Tomaselli's food was so good - we skipped making our own meals mostly - even though kitchen was well stocked). We were very delighted with our stay there and are looking forward to coming back soon. SO relaxing!
This home was perfect for a get away. We were looking for a place in the Scottsburg/Elkton area and this really hit the spot. The home was immaculate and perfectly located only a block from the winery, market and 2 restaurants! Gene has thought of every comfort for his guests, even a spa! Couldn't have been happier and the transaction was flawless. Thanks so much. We will contact you again if we head back!
Property far exceeded out expectations. It was very tastefully decorated and equipped with everything to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. We spent two days fishing the Umpqua River for smallmouth bass, viewed the Elk from the preserve further down the river, and visited the Oregon coast as well. The scenery was breathtaking and the town of Elkton clean and friendly. We prepared our own meals at the house most days, but enjoyed a delightful dinner at Tomasellis as well. Plenty of things to do and great to come back to such an enjoyable home.
The home was clean and comfortable, easy to work within for our Sibling Gathering, all of us 65 or older. 3 of us stayed in the home and 4 came to visit midday and early evening. More close parking would make the experience much better...walking around from parking on street to the house proved some difficulty for 3. Would repeat visit again. Stores were within walking distance and town was very serene with a relaxing view of mountains and trees. Very quiet for being so close to center of town. Owner was pleasant and more than a little helpful in working out details.
