We discovered the beautiful Elk River Wilderness area back in 2003, when we purchased an unfinished cabin. One of our passions is renovating propertys and putting our interior design skills to use. So, we turned that unfinished structure into a unique family retreat. It has been the site of our annual family gathering, which included some years as many as 40 attendees! The property turned from a quaint cabin on 13 acres, to a RV/Tent campground with night time gatherings around the bonfire to cook up S'mores and share great stories! And we mustn't forget the many fun times spent swimming, lounging, and fishing at the boat launch located near the Elk River Fish Hatchery!

We live just an hour away, so we can enjoy it even for just a night. And other family menbers travel from the Portland area several times a year to just enjoy the peace and quiet and beauty of both the river and the beach.

Rita Todd-Kornbau purchased this house in 2012

We have lived near the Southern Oregon Coast since 1973. Discovering the amazing beauty of the Elk River was a hidden treasure that we had missed out on for many years. Once we discovered it's aqua-marine pristine waters set within the beautiful tree lined canyon where waterfalls abound! it was as if we had traveled far away from home, but it was just an hour away all along! All we needed to do was to take a drive and enjoy the adventure of discovering what life has to offer. So now we want to make that experience available to others.

And, if you love the beach, it's just a quick 15 minute drive to the magnificent Port Or ford coastline. Here, you can enjoy awesome ocean views, go for long walks on the beach, fly kites, or maybe even get lucky enough to see a seal or whale poke their head up to take a peek at you! Also, if you love fresh seafood, stop by the marina and see what the 'catch of day' is!

Most of the the river frontage where much of the fishing is done on the Elk is privately owned, which limits water access. Our River House gives us and our guests the freedom to enjoy the river right out the back door! Plus, it is just 1/4 mile from the public boat launch at the fish hatchery!

The spacious living area creates the perfect gathering space for family and friends to share meaningful time together.... Forming memories that last a lifetime! And reliving those exciting fish stories about the 'big one that got away' or showing the photos of the one who was not so lucky!

During the fishing season it is quite entertaining watching all the boats drift by. Since the river does not allow motor boats, the serenity is never disturbed.

We felt this house had one of the best set ups for our family. Also grandma and grandpa were able to have a quiet area! The river behind is just beautiful. And the owner is so sweet and friendly you can tell they truly care.

FANTASTIC VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
I grew up on the Southern Oregon Coast and have always loved The Sixes and Elk Rivers. I started taking my two teenagers on vacations up the Elk River 3 years ago with hopes that they will also be inspired by the natural beauty of the River. This was the first time we stayed in this house so I was a bit nervous. However, Rita was so great! I broke my arm the week before my trip and she was the most understanding and sweet woman with me not knowing if I was able to make my trip or not. I ended up going and the house and location exceeded every expectation. The house was very roomy, allowing my kids and neices and nephews to each have their own bed and left me with a very private master suite so that I felt that I was truly on vacation. The house was well equipped, very clean and homey. The location is unbeatable. The deck is very large and comfortable and has an unbeatable view. We spent 3 full days swimming, dog paddling, exploring, meeting great people and having a truly wonderful time. There is a great series of swimming holes just up from the fish hatchery. The first day we walked up the river to these but on the next few days, did a quick 5 minute drive to carry the tubes and all the gear. I would highly recommend this vacation rental and hope to come annually - don't take my spot!!!

My sisters and I were looking for a get away location to just be together and we were fortunate to find this lovely location on the beautiful Elk River. As children we were raised in nearby Langlois so we felt like we were going home! Lovely space - lots of room for the 6 of us, found all we needed in the kitchen, and the deck...oh the deck, the view is perfection, we were greeted by deer and birds of all kinds. We had limited ell service but our kids managed without us! The weather was perfect and it is so quiet - we slept like babies...I could go on and on...we loved everything about this place. So grateful we could be together in such a special place. thanks Rita!

LOVE OREGON

This property was so amazing. The house was perfect for two families to share and the inside was just as beautiful as the outdoor scenery. The deck was so lovely to relax on and enjoy the Elk River below. We had an amazing time and the personal touch given by the owners was beyond expectation. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful retreat.

HOLIDAY WEEKEND IN SOUTHERN OREGON

  • 5 of 5
Our plan was to do the Port Orford 4th of July with a lot of family. Some of us opted to stay up the Elk to have a little higher temperatures, less wind, and no fog. It was a perfect decision for all three reasons.
The river home was great for our group of three couples and three children under 5. The river that time of year was very safe for wading and catching water dogs.
The house is well equipped, very clean, and the deck was a wonderful place to entertain.
We did not have any cell coverage and without WiFi we felt very lucky for the quiet isolation. Some were not so excited about that. The satellite TV made up for those feeling out of touch.
One note: if you bring little children you will need to bring all of their equipment including Pack n Play. It would be nice to have gates on the ends of the deck to keep little ones corralled.
Thank you for a wonderful four days.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the ideas for improving the stay for our guests. We do have gates planned for the deck and hope that improves the ability to relax while on it with children and four legged family members alike!

There is a Pack & Play in the house, so I will make sure it is stored where guests can find it more easily.

Thank you,
Rita

The Elk River is a Wilderness area and Fall and Spring are noted for fabulous fishing on the pristine Elk River. A serine spot as well, since only drift boats are allowed! The Fish Hatchery is a short walk from our riverhouse where boats can be launched and fish can be viewed.

Salmon spawning is happening there late Fall and is a great chance to view large fish as they return to the hatchery. Early June the hatchery hosts free fishing for children up to the age of 10. Three miles up from our riverhouse, the Elk River is spectacular after the rains have replentished it. It is aqua-marine in color~ an incredible sight up the canyon! And there are numerous waterfalls as well!

Cape Blanco Lighthouse is just 15 minutes away and offers an awesome view of the Pacific ocean plus interesting facts about the history of the lighthouse.

Port Orford marina offers a possible glimps at migrating whales in Spring and sealions throughout the year too! And always a view of the picturesque Oregon coastline!

The Animal Park, where one can actually touch wild animals! is just a 20 minute drive north.

Golf at Bandon Crossings is just beyond the Animal Park and Banon Dunes is a 40 minute drive along tree lined 101.

Shore Acres Botanical Gardens are located 1 1/2 hours to the north out of Charlston harbor. Thousands of lights during the Christmas season create a fantasy land as they glow in the night. The shoreline there is very interesting as well as the history of the Simpson family who originally owned the gardens.

South 30 minutes, at Rogue River, there are exhillarating jet boat rides up that beautiful river. Continuing south along a magnificent coastline you will arrive to the Giant Redwood Forest. This drive takes about 3 hours, but if you have the time to venture out, it is an awesome sight.
