About Port Orford
I found Port Orford, Oregon to be one of those preverbal, “diamond in the rough” destinations. One does not typically expect such wonderful amenities from a smaller town, but this southern coastal community is not only worth a stop, it’s worth a stay. With a vibrant art scene hosting over a dozen galleries, a number of quality restaurants and some outstanding accommodations, Port Orford would make any discerning traveler feel comfortable, and might I add…at home. Small in stature (only a few square miles), but unexpectedly authentic and rich in character, Port Orford presents mountainous forests uniting with rugged coastline. The Natural beauty will beckon your sense of discovery, you’ll find all kinds of nooks and crannies as you roam unbeaten paths. The sense of isolation with quality amenities is the perfect blend for those who desire a slower pace, coupled with tranquility. The Port of Port Orford is located in the heart of town—you’re actually able to drive down and park, which allows you to enjoy the views and the waves crashing against the jetty. This natural harbor has one of only two “dolly docks” in the U.S., where boats are lifted in and out of the water by huge cranes. Port Orford is a working fishing port and home to nearly thirty commercial vessels. There is a small restaurant, seafood processing plant and gift shop to visit as well.

Each cabin is distinctly furnished in a modern and plush manner with the work of local artists adorning the walls. There are overstuffed love-seats with chenille throws for warmth. The pillow-top beds are extremely comfortable and the down comforter makes sleeping quite cozy. Accommodations come with a refrigerator, a massage table, an iPod compatible stereo (which I love!) and an LCD TV with DVD player. However, there is no broadcast or cable reception—never fear though, there is an extensive DVD library in the guest hall.
