Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath. Master Bedroom Ocean View w/ French Doors to Deck.

Shelter Cove Cottage is a secluded and privately located 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.​

Why Kimberly A. James ~ Vacation Services Coordinator chose Coastal Oregon

OWNER RESPONSE:

We were drawn to the private, romantic feel of this home nestled among large pine trees with gorgeous views of the ocean, beach, surf, Cape Blanco & whales. We enjoy the beach access next to our home right down to Agate Beach. We hope you will be lucky enough to enjoy a visit by a whale pod while searching for agates on the beach below. Please walk on our garden pathways while enjoying the flowers and beach view. We fell in love with our home & believe you will too.

What makes this house unique

OWNER RESPONSE:

Forest setting with gorgeous beach ocean views, relaxing ocean waves & refreshing fresh clean air. Very photographic area.

View Cape Blanco, whales & elevated beach view from great room, master bedroom, deck & garden. Search for agates & sea life on beach via access next to home. Located only 1 mile from Hwy 101 but no auto traffic noise. Frequent deer sightings. Enjoy walks with ocean views from nearby Port Orford Heads Park.(historic location of the lifeguard rescue station). Port Orford is the most westerly town in the contiguous US.

~ PORT ORFORD, OREGON ~

Located along the Southern Oregon Coast, Port Orford is where the ocean breeze meets the forest trees. Travelers, whether for business or leisure, visit Port Orford's quaint and pristine small fishing village to Rest, Relax and Recharge. The quiet solitude and picturesque surroundings allow an atmosphere of serenity, thereby creating the opportunity for revitalization to all who visit.

For the explorer, Port Orford offers adventure by providing several historical points of interest. The port of Port Orford is the most unique dock in Oregon as it operates one of only two dolly docks located within the United States. For those unaware of the dolly dock principle, Port Orford’s commercial fisherman are only able to enter the water via crane, making for a fascinating afternoon watch.

Visible from 22 miles off shore, the Cape Blanco Lighthouse, a Port Orford treasure, is considered the furthest most westerly point within in the continental United States. Built in 1870, Cape Blanco still guides fisherman, sailors and boating enthusiasts safely to shore. The location of Shelter Cove Cottage presents a one-of-a-kind experience, not only due to the daily breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean but due to the ability to see the Cape Blanco Lighthouse in the distance as it lights up the Pacific Northwest coastline.

Nearby is the beautifully restored Victorian Hughes House Museum built in 1898, which became a member of the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, and provides an inside look at Port Orford's historical and humble beginnings. The Lifeboat Station Museum, featuring a restored Coast Guard Station, shipwreck memorabilia, and many artifacts from the years when the Coast Guard Station was providing services to ships, is rich in historical information relating to World War II.

For a little bit of culture, there are several art galleries owned and operated by local artists who contribute their own whimsical sense of creativity and charm. Other crafty residents with their own unique artistic flare can be found at our very own Saturday Farmer’s Market from 9:00 am to noon, which also offers an array of baked goods, fresh and locally grown organic produce, pottery, jewelry and other keepsake mementos that are sure to delight. Around the corner is Port Orford’s very own “CommUnity” Co-Op, featuring organic produce, a variety of organic bulk food products, locally caught seafood and locally raised beef. Port Orford also has a wonderful, fully stocked quilt shop that offers quilting classes for all skill levels.

On February 18, 2010, the Common Council of the City of Port Orford added a “Dark Sky” Ordinance (No. 367-87), limiting “…outdoor lighting used for residential, commercial (and) public areas” in order to reduce light pollution and enhance our pristine night’s sky. Port Orford is the first city in Oregon to implement such an ordinance and one of the many fascinating, unique and innovate features that make Port Orford a great place to visit.

On May 17, 2012, a portion of the city of was deemed a “Community Stewardship Area” or “Natural Resources Inventory” (“Stewardship”) via an amendment to the “Comprehensive Plan Inventory” initially adopted July 20, 2005. The Stewardship is a “biologically diverse” area spanning 1,320 square miles and encompassing “…terrestrial, freshwater, intertidal, and ocean environments,” created to protect Port Orford’s natural habitat. The City of Port Orford, in conjunction with our local Port Orford Ocean Resources Team and the Pacific Marine Conservation Council, created the amendment to assist in the preservation of wildlife and, in turn, future sustainability for Port Orford inhabitants.

Perfect place for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Shelter Cove was wonderful! Kimberley was helpful from answering questions prior to booking to helping us with an early check in. The house was spacious, private setting, clean and host a well equipped kitchen. The views are speculator from mutilple areas in the house and deck. The ocean is just a short walk from the house. During our stay we experienced very high winds, but still had a memorialable family vacation. Highly recommend Shelter Cove!

Well-appointed and sparkling clean! Wonderful beach access with views.

  • 4 of 5

Shelter Cove Cottage is a well-appointed home with everything you need to experience the beauty of the coast. The home is sparkling clean supplied with good quality furnishings. We enjoyed the privacy, the beautiful garden, and the stunning sunsets from the living room and back deck. We walked the neighboring paths of The Heads of Port Orford one evening ....STUNNING!! Everything you need for an enjoyable vacation on the Oregon Coast.

Peaceful Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the home was very clean and very tidy. We love how well taken care of this home is (just FYI the kitchen cabinets need a little work- several hinges are worn out). We loved being able to hear the waves from the house, and the beautiful nature walk down to the beach. We were blessed to witness whales enjoying the cove as well as a sea lion. Excellent place to stay! We plan on trying to make a trip there every year.

Owner's Response: Dear Justin P.: It was a pleasure meeting you, your lovely family and Elsie, your feline companion. The Caption prior to the written review - “Peaceful Sanctuary,” - describes Shelter Cove Cottage to the “T.” This particular Port Orford vacation home has the most spectacular view, offering quiet solitude, allowing those who visit to be able to unwind and rejuvenate. Additionally, it was absolutely my pleasure to create something for both Howie and Madeline. It is my sincerest hope they will both write, draw or sketch their personal experiences during this particular family adventure, as well as many more to come. Perhaps, each personalized travel booklet will be a way to journal their adventures and a source of discussion for many years to come. Kimberly A. James ~ Vacation Services Coordinator ~

This home could not have been more perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home overlooking the ocean. From the moment you walk into the house your breath is taken away by the amazing views. That, in addition to the warm and friendly welcome from Kimberly, definitely started off our family vacation in the best way possible. Waiting for us on the breakfast bar were hand crafted keep-sakes, individually crafted for each member of my family. Our 1 year old lab even had a bag with his name on it full of "scooby" treats. From there we took the short (although steep) trail to our secluded piece of paradise on the Beach. It was pretty much our own beach! The wind was a bit strong, but that made it better for flying the stunt kites my kids picked up in Bandon. Every evening we could watch the sun go down over the ocean from the living room (as well as the master bedroom) Simply stunning! All in All, a week of memories that will last a life time. Thanks again. Even though it was an 11 hour drive from Idaho, we will definitely be back. (Next time, however, we'll fly into Portland and rent a car.)

Owner's Response: Dear David A: Thank you for your kind and informative review. There is no better description or narrative than one provided via the perspective of an actual Guest. Shelter Cove Cottage is, without a doubt, a wonderful place to stay. Located in a secluded little alcove, offering spectacular, panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean with beach access and equipped with everything one could possible need. Who could ask for more? We welcome your return to Shelter Cove Cottage! Kimberly A. James ~ Vacation Services Coordinator ~
