Location: Coos Bay, Oregon, USA (Allegany, Oregon, One Mile from Golden and Silver Falls Park)
Accommodations: Timber Frame Cabin - 2 Bedrooms + Loft + TV room - 2.5 Baths
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 hobit style front door with hardware from the 1800's. Highlights of this wonderful home include a gourmet kitchen, 800 year old juniper tree spiral stair case, huge beams and exposed rafters, sauna, romantic wood stove, hanging beds with large skylights above for indoor star gazing, and original artwork from local artists.
Nestled amongst towering fir and cedars the outdoors almost comes in. You really can sit on the couch by the fire, listen to the creek and watch the salmon and steelhead spawn. You wont even have to venture outside to get wood for the fire, just use the indoor wood box. With much less wind, temperatures are warmer than on the beach and the famous coastal fog wont bother you here.
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 downstairs bathroom. All of the fir beams and fir flooring came from two 105 year old trees which also stood and were milled where the house is now. 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 and 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 five burner gas stove with a warming oven, stainless, non-stick, and cast iron cookware. Also included are a coffee grinder, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, utensils, knives, glasses and frosty cocktail glasses in the freezer. The kitchen blends into the living room where there is a dining table that can seat eight. Beside the wood stove is the futon couch and reading lamp. A CD changer and TV with a DVD player and VHS machine is in the downstairs bedroom. Bring your favorite DVD's or browse our selection of movies.
The property has 150' of riverfront with great views of river and distant cliffs. Enjoy wildlife viewing with Dippers, Chipmunks, Kingfishers, Great Blue Herons, an occasional Bald Eagle or River Otter and other wildlife visible from the house and back deck. Build a fire and relax on the nearby picnic table.
-Golden and Silver Falls State Park-
Hiking trails wind through scenic canyons to each of the waterfalls. They plunge over sheer rock cliffs to moss covered boulders 100 to 200 feet below. Hike to the top of Golden Falls to get an eagle's-eye view of the cascading waterfall and giant old-growth firs and cedars.
Golden Falls, at a height of 200 feet, plus 40 feet of steep talus cascades just below is, quite likely, the most impressive waterfall in the Coast Range of Oregon. A rather large amount of water flows over this waterfall during winter, creating quite a cloud of spray that warrants rain gear if you want to get up close and stay somewhat dry. Definitely a sight to behold.
