NEW LISTING! Dog-friendly home near downtown Port Orford w/peaceful pond setting

Port Orford... the village where the trees meet the sea! The town that time forgot is a place for you to live in the 70s and 80s... a time to ride your bicycle on beautiful, large, tree-lined streets, out of the traffic. Walk around the corner to the local supermarket or drive for three minutes to some of the most beautiful beaches you've ever seen. Our secluded beaches may not be crowded with people but with agates, ancient fossils, intriguing driftwood, and sandcastle-making materials and an opportunity for superlative whale watching. Port Orford delivers the only dry dock and the best natural summer harbor between San Francisco and Puget Sound - with no dangerous bar crossing! Crane-launched commercial and sport fishing craft head for salmon and bottom fishing locales.

Port Orford has it's historic legacy, from Tutuni Indians, who lived here for over 5,000 years to settlers who established Port Orford as the first townsite on the Oregon Coast in 1859. The Visitors Center on Battle Rock is full of materials on hiking trails, surfing, windsurfing, diving, and other recreational activities.

Pondhurst sits on serene Buffington Pond across the street from the Garrison Lake boat ramp, where you can fish for rainbow trout, yellow perch, or widemouth bass, or simply launch your boat or kayak. Pondhurst is around the corner from Buffington Park, where you can play tennis, basketball, or horseshoes; ride in the horse arena; or use the great skate park.

Buffington Pond and Garrison Lake are both natural preserves with egrets, blue heron, ducks, geese, turtles, beavers, and otters. Drive three minutes to the beautiful, peaceful beaches, walk around the corner to the local supermarket, or drive half an hour to Bandon Dunes Golf Courses.

This is a place where the silence of the neighborhood allows you to relax and enjoy your serenity.

Quiet, with a beautiful view of the pond, the lake and the ocean from the same window. Charming house with a little yard in the back for the dog. Close to everything and very secluded at the same time.
There is only one shower on the first floor, so if there are many of you...
Loved the books and the paintings on the walls. Plenty of towels and blankets.
Thanks,

We loved our time at Pondhurst. The house was bright, clean and comfortable, though the floors were a bit wonky -- it added to its charm. We really appreciated the fenced in back yard to prevent our Labrador retrievers from spending the entire day in the pond or lake. The Roku TVs offered entertainment and the furniture was comfortable. The quiet location next to the pond and across the street from Garrison lake was perfect for relaxation. Buffington Memorial park offered our family free activities -- tennis, a skateboard park, miniature golf, and more. Hiking trails were just around the corner, and the grocery store 2 blocks away. Port Orford itself is small, but the locals were both friendly and helpful -- we were treated more like family than tourists. Clean and spacious beaches were plentiful. Thanks for a vacation we'll always treasure!

What a charming house! Very comfortable beds, natural light shines in the upstairs with views of the lake. We loved the peaceful setting on the lake where we watched wildlife come and go, walked to the park to play putt putt golf and walked across the street to watch the sun set each night. Very lovely home.
