Brookings Estate Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath Estate on the banks of the Chetco River (Sleeps 4-6)

Welcome to Paradise along southern Oregon's pristine Chetco River. Only 18 miles inland from the coast town of Brookings, a scenic half-hour drive along the river transports you to a beautiful and wilderness setting.

The Chetco River Inns' 36 very secluded acres on the banks of the Chetco River is surrounded by the Siskiyou National Forest. Our vacation rentals caters to both nature lovers and anglers, and makes for a great getaway. Whether renting rooms in the 5 Bedroom Suite Main Lodge or staying in the romantic ''Rockhouse' cottage next tower newley planted vineyard, our rooms for rent are ideal for families or individuals, reunions, weddings and retreats for those seeking outdoor activities.

The Inn's thirty-six acres are completely private and offer gentle walks, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, swimming, kayaking, rafting, paddleboarding, or simply floating down river.

World-class Salmon and Steelhead fishing can be enjoyed from directly in front of the Inn and excellent Cutthroat trout fishing is nearby in the River's many tributaries. If fishing is your passion, you simply can't beat our location on this upper streach of the Chetco River. If you wish, we're also happy to help by referring you to some of the best local professional guides who float fish long stretches of the river.

The main Inn offers 5 bedrooms, each with their own bath. 2 river view rooms have double beds. 3 forest view rooms have either king or twin beds. Look out over the spacious common room with its panoramic river views while cooking in the large kitchen; Or enjoy a movie in the den. Sit on the deck in one of the rocking chairs while enjoying the river view or firepit.

The estate also features a separate cottage called the 'Rockhouse' that sleeps 4 with a king (or 2 twins) upstairs and 2 twins downstairs. The 'Rockhouse' also includes a full kitchen and 1 1/2 baths with a jacuzzi tub, private patio with habatchi grill. The 'Rockhouse' overlooks our new vineyard planted in Pinot Noir, is located near our gardens, is convenient to many fun animals, and is privately situated near the river and away from the Main Lodge.

About Marci

The Chetco River Inn is our second home and we welcome you to stay and enjoy our beautiful property. We hope to spend many years creating wonderful memories with our family and friends working and playing along the Chetco River.

Marci purchased this estate in 2011

Why Marci chose Coastal Oregon

The Chetco River Inn is a breathtaking wilderness estate constructed on 36 private acres surrounded by the Siskiyou National Forest and built by Clay and Sandra Bruger. Since it's creation, the Inn has inspired memories of warm hospitality, natural beauty, and unique outdoor activities. After changing owners a couple of times recently, the Chetco River Inn is open once again. The new caretakers Steve and Sherrie are ready to welcome all visitors.

What makes this estate unique

In the summer months, we enjoy swimming and floating down the gentle Chetco river. In the winter, we love Salmon fishing and hiking the many surrounding acres. For more information about our wonderful property.

Peacefull stay on the River

  • 5 of 5

Very accommodating, a quiet (Frickles the rooster did his thing all day long, we didn't mind) peaceful cottage with Vineyard view. The rock house was just as described. Very clean and efficient. Our stay included swimming in the river.

Great place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

I would give more stars if I could! If you are looking for a dog friendly place to get away from it all and say in a comfortable cabin on the banks of a pristine river look no further. It is off grid, has all the comforts and is close enough to town if you need to run in for supplies. Had a great time fishing and mushroom hunting! Many thanks to Kat and Oscar who were great hosts!

Amazing gem!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! It was a beautiful little cabin with great amenities. We were there with our two pugs, and it was the perfect size for us. Four people would be fine there, but perhaps a bit tight if it wasn't close family. The property itself it so peaceful and gorgeous. The river is right outside your door. The caretakers who run it(Oscar and Kat), were extremely friendly and helpful. The farm animals on the property were adorable, and very sociable. I have already told my husband that I want to return there next year.

Can't Wait to Return!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 absolutely fell in love with the Chetco River and this property! We are definitely plotting our return. The caretakers are lovely people (and animal hosts). The location is idyllic. The River House met all our needs. We spent 2 nights a few days into a 2 week road trip and although our entire trip was super fun, it was hard not to just stay on longer and spend many more days relaxing in the river, adventuring more on surrounding trails, hanging out with the menagerie of animals....
