Shelter Cove Cottage is a secluded and privately owned custom 3 bedroom, 2 bath vacation home nestled among large native pine trees with stunning, majestic views of the Pacific Ocean. The Great Room, with its “wall” of windows, along with the dining room and Master Bedroom, have magnificent views incorporating the Port Orford Heads State Park and historic Cape Blanco Lighthouse, two Oregon State treasures. Built with a combined feel of both New American and Ranch Style architecture, Shelter Cove Cottage offers a quaint and charming home-away-from-home atmosphere. The large, newly renovated kitchen is fully equipped with cookware, utensils, dinnerware and linens for your dining-in pleasure.
The illuminating night views of the Cape Blanco Lighthouse and the sound of the ocean can’t help but create a romantic setting during winter months. Perhaps a leisurely day of lounging on the deck, taking in the refreshing and clean salt air while listening to the sounds of the ocean waves and the wind in the trees is the ticket to ensuring an atmosphere of rest and relaxation. Shelter Cove also offers high speed internet, cable TV with DVD player, and a telescope for whale watching and stargazing.
For the adventurous spirit, there is a large garden with pathways to explore and direct access to Agate Beach State Park, where searching for agates may very well lead to viewing whales at play. Shelter Cove is also a bike friendly lodging facility for the avid cyclist in need of a place to rest, relax and recharge before continuing his or her journey along the Southern Oregon Coast.
If vacationing with children or grandchildren, daytime adventures bound to delight can be found at the South Coast Game Park, located approximately 19 miles north, and the Prehistoric Gardens, located approximately 13 miles south. As Agate Beach is just a hop, skip and jump from Shelter Cove’s back door, agate hunting or just a simple fun day in the sun building sandcastles on the beach may be in order.
There are several places of interest in the city and only a short distance from the quiet and peaceful seclusion of Shelter Cove. Port Orford has several art galleries owned and operated by local artists who contribute their own sense of creativity and charm. Port Orford residents, visitors and tourists are fortunate to have our very own Food Co-Operative (open year round) and Saturday Farmer’s Market (June to September), both featuring locally grown produce, baked goods and a variety of artisan wears. Several eating establishments are located within the same area, offering their own specialty items, including homemade bread, muffins and delicious gourmet imported salami’s and cheeses.
Regardless of your reasons for visiting Port Orford, your stay at Shelter Cove Cottage will provide your body, mind and soul some much needed rest and relaxation.
