Welcome to The Cannery Estate, an historic waterfront property newly renovated for your next vacation or corporate retreat.
Please note that this listing is for the entire estate and accommodates 16 people. If your party is 12 people or less, the main house can be rented separately. Click on my host profile or visit our website at Dream Homes of Oregon to see pricing and availability.
The Estate sits on five private waterfront acres on gorgeous Alsea Bay, just outside the town of Waldport. It is like a private island, but the town of Waldport with all necessary services is only a five minute drive.
The property is gated and offers two wonderful homes; The Cannery and The Lodge; three private beaches, an 8-person spa, a firepit, a large pavilion with an outdoor kitchen and wood-burning fireplace, a gazebo with views of the water and Alsea Bay, a kayak/canoe launch, a creek, a pond, a She Shed for quiet relaxation, and lovely grounds.
Kayaks, Hydrobikes and a paddleboat are available for our guests. You can clam and crab on the property with our equipment, or walk down our beaches to see the pilings that are all that remains of the original cannery and ferry landing. Further down the beach, towards the ocean, you can visit a small waterfall, a fern gully, and the ruins of the original settlement of Waldport.
The property offers a pool table, a regulation size ping pong table, a library/den, multiple fireplaces, two chef's kitchens and an outdoor kitchen, two exterior dining areas, two bars (family room and game room), two sets of washers and dryers, games, two 150" hi-rez projector screens and a 65" smart TV with Netflix, Amazon Prime and HBO, multiple Bluetooth speakers and Echo Dots for your musical enjoyment. There are multiple areas to gather or to relax, all with incredible water views.
This property was used by the Alsea people for thousands of years as a fishing village. In the 1800's, the first Waldport settlement was located here. It included a salmon cannery, general store and post office as well as the ferry landing. Some of the pilings and ruins of this settlement can still be seen on our property and along the shoreline to the ocean. The cannery and the general store burned down in 1915.
The main home, now known as The Cannery, was built by the cannery owner's daughter in 1926, and offers four bedrooms and three and 1/2 baths in about 4,000 square feet, plus a large basement game room.
The second home, The Lodge, served as the workshop for a well-known local copper artist and jewelry designer. Totally renovated into a contemporary loft home, it is 1,500 square feet and offers one bedroom, a sleeping loft and a pullout sofa to accommodate six.
Both homes underwent a painstaking 10-month renovation, and are now ready to begin a new chapter in the property's history as we welcome guests.
Better than the beach! Our sheltered location on Alsea Bay generally results in temperatures that are about 10 degrees warmer than the beach, with mild weather most of the year. Kayaking, canoeing, paddle boating, clamming, crabbing, fishing and wildlife watching are all right here.
The native people of this area named it Alsea, or "peace/paradise" in their language, due to the bounty of nature and the mild climate that meant abundance for all.
There is an amazing variety of wildlife at the property. A bonded pair of Bald Eagles nest here (they have hatched up to FOUR eaglets! We usually see them all together once each year when Mom and Dad teach them to hunt for shellfish on the sandbar in front of the house at low tide), and there are daily sightings of river otters, harbor seals, great blue herons, loons and many other sea birds, while on the grounds of the property you will see many chipmunks, rabbits, bluejays and squirrels.
This area is well known for its crabbing and clamming, which can be done from our property without a license by our guests, or if you want to clam or crab further afield, a shellfish license is available online at minimal cost.
Salmon and other fishing is abundant. An Oregon fishing license is required.
Bring your kayak or canoe, and if you have a boat the new Waldport boat launch is just across the bay. There are also kayaks, Hydro Bikes and a 5-person paddle boat available for our guest’s use.
For a once-in-a-lifetime getaway, consider The Cannery Estate.
