Mike McLain purchased this House in 1999
Why Mike McLain chose Waldport
This property sits on Jaquina John Point, which juts out at the confluence of the Alsea river bay and the Pacific Ocean. It has full, unobstructed, ocean front, river front and bay front views, including the beautiful Alsea bay bridge. It is minutes to all city amenities.
What makes this House unique
This house's perch above the Alsea's entry into the Pacific Ocean with the tide coming and going, with Winter and Summer storms and fishermen and crabbers working means a change in view moment to moment, day to day, month to month.

A sweet retreat to rest
The out side is well taken care of, but when you walk through the door, very cute! Lots of big windows with lovely views. For a cottage, it is roomy and very comfortable.
We throughly enjoyed our stay and will be back again .
Absolutely gorgeous view!
This was our third stay in this little home with an incredible view! It never disappoints! The owner is kind responsive and always a pleasure to interact with. The master bedroom and most of the house have incredible dynamic views panning from the ocean all the way past the bridge over the Alsea River. The owner has been good about making small changes when I've recommended in the past. There is a small bedroom with bunk beds and another bedroom (closer to the road with a queen bed) that do not have heat so you'll want to leave doors open to let the warmth in overnight unless you like to sleep in the cold. Only the back bedroom has carpet. My 5-year-old son who has allergies and asthma struggles to breathe in the carpeted room but does well in the rest of the house so we just keep that room closed off when we visit. It's an easy walk in a quiet neighborhood maybe four houses down to a steep gravel walkway down to the beach and on one side there's sturdy rope to hold so you can keep your balance as needed. The seals love to play and feed right in the middle of the view from inside the house. We always see rainbows and all sorts of weather coming and going. It seems like this particular area gets more sunshine than to the North Southeast or West. The sky is often open and blue right above the house and around where the river and ocean collide. The lights of the small town at night and on the bridge are nice and the higher windows give you a good view of the stars at night. There are also two large skylights one in each bathroom that provide abundant natural light I totally appreciate. It is an older home and not updated But with such an amazing view it's not a big deal. The countertops are flat and solid laminate in the kitchen which is much safer for people with allergies than tile with grout or a textured surface:) having a telescope is also a nice perk to watch the blue herring or seabirds go about their fishing. Parking is easy on gravel just a few feet from the house and there are two solid steps to enter. Unlike most houses you can rent on a vacation it is equipped with salt and pepper! I don't know if they're okay with people using it or not but it's not locked up so you could probably use their oil or sugar as desired? Might want to check with Mike on that. It is our favorite spot to stay along the Oregon coast! Thank you again Mike and family!
