Overview

Coos Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths

The salmon are in the Bay and lower river!

Relax and revive in this artistic 'cabin' with wonderful views of historic Glenn Creek from every room. An architectural dream, you enter this lodge style home through a pivoting hobbit style front door with hardware from the 1800's. Highlights of this original home include a gourmet kitchen with labradorite granite counters, 800 year old juniper tree spiral stair case, huge beams and exposed rafters, a sauna, and a romantic wood stove. Also each upstairs bedroom has a hanging bed with three 8 foot skylights above for indoor star gazing. Original artworks from local artists are throughout the home. Many pleasantries await the curious such as embedded fossils in the cracked mud walls.

Nestled amongst towering fir and cedar trees, with windows everywhere, you'll feel and see nature's presence. This home site has a remarkably peaceful way about it.

Recently featured in Southern Oregon Magazine and KCBY 11 TV's ~In Focus~ 'Goin' Green' and Oregon's Solar Home Tour, this is a unique 'green' home. This home was built with environmentally friendly materials. Building with little impact on the surroundings was very important to us during construction. The myrtle hardwood floor in the kitchen and living room was milled on site which came from trees that stood where the house is now. Same story for the beautiful maple flooring in the ½ bath. All of the large beams and fir flooring came from two 4' thick 104 year old douglas fir trees which also stood and were milled where the house is now. The fir trees sprouted after the last forest fire that came through the canyon. One of our neighbors fell a sixty five year old redwood that was over six feet thick! We used some of it as a wonderful wainscot paneling throughout the house. All of the finishes used are no or low VOC. Surrounding the house is native vegetation, huge trees and a few herbs and spices for cooking.

You'll enjoy the fully equipped kitchen with labradorite granite counters. The kitchen island has a new five burner gas stove with a convection oven and warming oven. The island has plenty of granite and wood counter space. Hanging from the exhaust hood are stainless, non-stick, and cast iron cookware. We also provide shade grown fair trade coffee and a grinder, espresso machine, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, utensils, chef knives, glasses and frosty cocktail glasses in the freezer. The dining room table has a river view and can seat eight. There is also seating for three at the island bar. From the kitchen you can visit with the folks in the living room thanks to the open floor plan. Beside the wood stove are two chairs and the futon couch with reading lamp. A CD changer, TV with a DVD player and VHS machine are in the downstairs bedroom. Bring your favorite videos or browse our selection of movies.

The property has 150 feet of creek frontage with great views of Glenn creek, the forest and distant cliffs. Enjoy wildlife viewing with River Dippers, Chipmunks, Kingfishers, Great Blue Herons, Screech Owls, Pileated Wood Peckers, Elk, an occasional Bald Eagle or River Otter and other wildlife from the house and back deck. Build a fire and have lunch on the nearby picnic table and benches.

About Shane Daugherty - Owner/Builder

When I'm not crabbing I clam or go fishing.Sometimes a walk on the beach or the trails along the ocean cliffs out by Shore Acres is just right. Don't tell anyone but the surfing here isn't so bad either. I love this place!

Shane Daugherty - Owner/Builder purchased this house in 2005

Why Shane Daugherty - Owner/Builder chose Coastal Oregon

The narrow canyon valley below Golden and Silver Falls is wonderful. I grew up here moved away, and came back for the natural beauty and solitude of the Oregon rain forest. This area has been a favorite of mine since I was a youngster. In 2005 when the bare land became available I jumped on it and started a three year art project which became Below the Falls Lodge.

What makes this house unique

One of my favorite things is to take a hot sauna then jump in the creek. It really makes you feel alive. Also during the warmer months the upstream swimming hole has a rock to jump off of. Fall and Winter are great also, following the rain wild mushrooms come then salmon and steelhead. I really enjoy hiking the falls by the light of the full moon. The old growth fir and cedar are so amazing. The lodge was a huge art project, I tried to be unique and creative during the entire construction process. I think you'll appreciate it.

A refreshing and liberating experience for our entire family

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Shane for opening your home to us! It was truly a refreshing and liberating experience for our entire family. Each of us was enthralled with the wondrous setting that "Below the Falls Lodge" calls its homestead. The gentle whooshing of the creek, the calls of the birds, and the sweet swaying of the trees rocked us into a natural harmony filled with happiness and contentment. You've created such a beautiful and imaginative home! It is so in tune with the gorgeous surroundings that it feels like the house itself is alive and growing out of the mountain. What an awesome achievement! You've thought of every detail to make a home that seems to anticipate its inhabitants' needs. We've all been able to really relax and enjoy it, only wish we could stay longer. We can't believe you would want to part with this place! It was difficult for us to leave and we were only guests! Thank you again for sharing and much health and happiness to you and your family. Regards, The Zamplas Family (Bill and Bev - Brighton, MI, Lindsey -Venice Beach, CA, and Nik - Brighton, MI)

Amazing place to rest and relax...

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to rest and relax for our annual "man trip" the rural and remote location allowed us to really get away from our day to day stress and get back to nature. The home was super comfortable and had everything we could hope for. It fit all of us nicely with room to spare with lots of beds and baths and that huge great room. The charming details and custom woodworking is truly amazing!!! This was not my first stay at the lodge and will certainly not be my last. Until next time. We love you below the falls lodge!!!

Thanks for being such a great host Shane! Always a pleasure buddy.

Great, secluded house

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Below the Falls Lodge. Secluded, and quiet, it was a perfect place to enjoy some time with the family. We hiked to the falls, at a great breakfast at a nearby pancake house, and cooked a great dinner at the house. At night, the moonlight shone through the huge, old growth pines. And the only noise was the bubbling of the nearby creek. Fantastic stuff.

Beautiful Stay and Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Shane's Below the Falls Lodge is a labor of love at every turn of this custom home with a great kitchen and comfortable beds. The setting can't be beat in the plush green forest just a mile from the Silver and Golden Falls, which are an easy walk to stunning falls and lots of interesting foliage. The creek that flows beside the house adds to the relaxing nature of the home as does the hammock and outdoor sauna. We loved the remoteness, the house, BBQing on the deck, and cooking in the kitchen. The house had everything we needed, included a good supply of wood for the woodstove, which we needed on one chilly summer night. We appreciated the handmade wood furniture and the entirety of the home as well as the artwork adorning the walls. An excellent stay and so very relaxing what was exactly what we were looking for. Delicious water too! Don't miss the falls!!

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The home is a work of art. Which made it fun to stay there. Also, it is next to the river and not a very long hike to some amazing waterfalls. It's Natures paradise.

So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend celebrating my husband's 40th Birthday. It is a beautiful and unique home. It is very similar in style to the kind of things we like to build so it gave us some great ideas. Listening to creek was the best part. We highly recommend this place.
