House was remodeled in 2011/2012.
Wilson River: Stretching an impressive forty-three river miles from its headwaters, the Wilson River is a landmark waterway flowing into Tillamook County. In addition to popular Chinook and Steelhead runs, this river system also boasts several large tributaries and ample recreational access for boaters, off-road-vehicles, and hikers. The Wilson is a gateway for the Tillamook Forest and beckons travelers along Highway 6 to stop and explore.
Art galleries and dining within a 1/2 mile. At night you can listen to the creek and river while watching the elk cross the yard as they come down to drink. The elk have made a fun trail through the thick forest behind the home.
Wilson River Fishing The Wilson River is one of Oregon's most popular rivers for fishing. It sports great runs of chinook salmon (both spring and fall run salmon), chum salmon and some coho salmon. The coho and chum salmon are currently only open to catch and release fishing but the spring and fall run chinook salmon are present in high enough numbers to support consumptive fishing.
Wilson River Fishing
The Wilson River parallels Oregon's Highway 6 from the top of the Oregon Coast Range to the city of Tillamook where the Wilson enters Tillamook Bay. All along the river is great bank access for Wilson River fishing and watching salmon spawn during their migration periods. Peak times for salmon are April - June for spring run chinook and October - December for fall run chinook, chum and coho.
For the famed run of winter steelhead, December - January for the hatchery run fish which are catch and keep and January - April for some broodstock steelhead (catch and keep) but mostly wild fish ranging upwards of 20 pounds!

For the horses:
There are 5 paddocks, made from portable metal panels. Four of which are right next to each other; three are 12x12 and one slightly larger and then the 5th paddock is off on its own and is much larger. Hot fence surrounds the paddocks for added security. Property is not otherwise fenced. There is a small manure cart, manure fork and 2 large water buckets; the rest of the supplies are to be brought by horse owners. There is no cover so bring your rain sheets. There is an outside light by the paddocks as well.
You must haul to beach/trails. Closest trails are about ½ mile and beach 10-12 miles.
Ample car/truck parking and parking for small boat trailers. With larger trailers, I would think parking would be limited to two trucks with horse trailers; No street parking.
