Ideally located in Oregon's desirable 'banana belt', in the middle of the famed 'America's Wild Rivers Coast', is our cozy, A-framed house overlooking the beautiful Chetco River which is a 3-4 minute walk from the house. There you will find a nice beach area for swimming or fishing in season . The house has views from the living room, loft and very large deck which are breathtaking! Kayaks can be rented in Brookings for fun on the river. The Chetco River House is located 5 miles upstream from the ocean and also above the summer morning, coastal fog.
This 1400 sq. ft. slightly rustic home has games for kids, cards, and puzzles, books, and movies. Satellite TV. The 'fully loaded' kitchen, dining area and living room is all one great room. The over-sized deck, which wraps around 2 sides of the house, has a charcoal bar-b-que and patio table with 6 chairs. There are 4 extra patio chairs and 2 child sized chairs on patio. A card table and 2 extra folding chairs can be found in the master bedroom closet if needed.
There are 2 bedrooms and a loft with a futon. The living room has a sleeper sofa. There is also a full-sized air mattress and 2 twin-sized air mattresses if needed.
The Chetco River in front of the house boasts some of the best salmon and steelhead fishing around. Some of the largest salmon on the river are caught right in front of the River House in the fall and winter at Moffet Rock. The Slam'n Salmon Fishing Derby is held every September in Brookings with prizes to the winners and a special hosted barbecue.
The beautiful Salmon Run Golf Course is located 1-1/2 miles from the house. It is a MUST play. Tight fairways and breath taking views on every hole. Salmon Run is ranked one of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses in Oregon.
The nearby coastal cities of Brookings and Harbor have miles of beaches where one can play in the surf and sand and enjoy a family picnic. Or a 20 minute drive south of Brookings will bring you to the ancient giant redwoods. There's something for everyone here!

We are Mark and Patty Christensen. We live in S. California near San Diego. I, Mark, am originally from Long Island, NY, and am a small business owner of Christensen Surveying and Mapping, Inc. I've been doing land surveying for over 30 yrs. I, Patty, am originally from Corona, California. I own my own business as a massage therapist and have been doing this for 20 yrs. We have 5 grown kids between us and also 15 grandkids. Although, most of our time is consumed with doing maintenance on the place, as you can see from the picture here, we also take the time to relax and enjoy what the Lord has blessed us with. We hope the River House will be a blessing to you also.
Upon looking for a place on the Oregon coast that we could someday retire to, we also looked at a little red-roofed A-frame house on the Chetco River that we were falling in love with. Although the other houses we looked at were newer, they did not have the serenity, character, and charm as the River House, which was also a bit of a fixer-upper. So we decided to buy it, replace the old deck with a much larger Trexwood deck, clean up the inside, cut back the overgrown landscaping and make it into the wonderful place it is now. Our guest book, reflects the happiness, fun and memories that are created by the many vacationing families and couples that stay in our home. We hope you will find the same enjoyment in this beautiful spot of heaven on earth.
