About Rita Todd-Kornbau
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.

Why Rita Todd-Kornbau chose Port Orford
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!
What makes this house unique
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.
