About Karen Williams
I was fortunate to be able to purchase this home this Spring, after falling in love with the Oregon coast. I live in Oregon, and work as an Occupational Therapy Assistant. I emigrated to the US 23 years ago from the UK, and the coast and climate in this area is similar to my homeland. I feel comfortable and at home in the Pacific northwest. People are friendly and welcoming and I love the natural beauty everywhere you look. Eventually I'd like to retire to my log home in the woods, but, in the meantime, I want you to enjoy it!
Karen Williams purchased this House in 2010
Why Karen Williams chose Brookings
I chose this home because it is unique and I love the 'rustic cabin' coziness of it; together with the view at nearby House Rock it can't be beat! To me, it is a comfortable place with no formality where you can finally relax, take a deep breath, and enjoy the peace and quiet. Lush green, rivers, ocean, beaches, tall pines, ferns, flowers, birds, sunsets, ever changing sky.
What makes this House unique
Perfect for those with dogs! Fully fenced grassy large back yard, 4 large dog houses, covered lounging deck, all those more could a dog want? Don't leave them home, they deserve a vacation too! Due to being a dog lover, I allow pets on blanketed sofas, and the carpet is well broken in. Dog hair is a condiment in this household! I am a big animal rescue supporter and hope to encourage pets to be part of your family.

Clean and bright very comfortable
We enjoyed the entire stay. The wood stove was a delight to have on the chilly march night's. The hot tub was wonderful and very hot just how I like it. The whole property is fenced and well maintained. I asked my girlfriend if she had anything to add to the review and she said it was the perfect little escape from reality but just a hip skip to civilization. Many nearly private beaches, an absolute delight.
Thankyou for your kind review, I heard a rumor you are coming back soon. That is the best compliment ever!
Large fenced yard for our dog that loved it! She did get sick from eating something there, but she is totally well now! Beautiful setting with wonderful hot tub! Just a little too close to traffic noise at night for me. I am a light sleeper.
Thank you Dee. I hope you will come back and visit Oregon and my cabin soon!
We loved the privacy of the cabin and property- it was just right for our family, especially our dogs. The essentials were provided which was quite helpful. The hot tub was a big hit and we were pleasantly surprised by the fire pit in the yard for toasting s’mores. The forest trees perfectly framed the beautiful sunsets. Karen was helpful and easy to communicate with.
Thank you Laura I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will come back soon!
Cozy, peaceful, romantic and cute.

Enjoyed the hot spa.
A surprise guest was found on our second day, a bat that continued to remain at the home, after we left.. We were unable to get the bat out of the house, so this was a real inconvenience and not a fun experience for our family.
I am truly sorry for your bat scare. I am currently researching bat behavior, how it might have got in, and how to deter bats in residence, to ensure this does not happen in the future.
exactly what we thought it was going to be....wonderful
