This property includes pasture, wetlands, a small lake, and a forested ridge rising more than 100 feet above sea level with views east, north and west, including views of the Pacific Ocean, only 0.6 miles west of the property. The property contains several hiking and horse trails and has direct access to miles of Forest Service trails, including access to Baker Beach, a sandy beach friendly for horses and people who appreciate nature without (prohibited) motorized vehicles. Sorry, no ATV’s on the adjacent sand dunes; just untracked ever-changing sand sculpture, peace, and quiet. Elk are frequently seen in the wetlands and pasture and mushrooms can be harvested in the forest.

A small Cottage has been placed in a clearing in the center of the Property. This location is a saddle in the ridge with 3 acres or more of nearly level ground from which the forest can be cleared to enlarge or replace the Cottage and add accessory buildings, corrals, etc.

The Cottage has a view east, across the Property’s wetlands and pasture, to C&M Stables and the hills rising inland from the Coast. The Cottage and saddle area are now served by a proven well, public power and land line telephone, as well as wireless services.

The property is approximately 8 miles north of Florence and 3 miles south of Sea Lion Caves. Florence is a major vacation destination on the Oregon Coast with a full range of urban services, a high quality hospital, airport, golf courses and the restaurants and shops of Old Town.

C&M Stables and Baker Beach

The Property is in the center of Oregon Coast Horse Country. Directly across Hwy 101 is C&M Stables which, for over 30 years, has provided guided horseback rides, lessons, and boarding. Therefore, it is possible that C&M might be willing to assist a future property owner with some property and trail maintenance, and also board or help care for horses in the new owner’s absence. Also across Hwy101, Herman Cape Road leads up to the Cape Mountain (Coast Horse Trail System).

From the western boundary of the Property, a series of Forest Service hiking / riding trails lead to Baker Beach Campground, and then on to Baker Beach, a sandy, serene treasure from which motor vehicles and even kites are prohibited. Some horses do not like kites.
