This cedar, glass and old-growth floored cabin was built in 1966 by a young architect. It sits at the edge of a beautiful wetlands with a hill between it and the ocean. Perfect retreat for one, for two or three friends. Very romantic.
This space is unique, because the cabin, itself, is so well designed and beautiful. You can push the clearstory windows open and hear the ocean at night, walk around the corner and down a block and you are on a beautiful beach. Starry nights are phenomenal. The trees are phenomenal. The whole place is visually private. It is calming to be at the cabin.
The cabin, the deck, the garden are yours to enjoy. The shed, however, holds the water heater, a non-functioning washer and dryer, gardening tools. The shed and its contents are not for guests. The beach, right around the corner and down, is wonderful in both directions. To the end of 4th Avenue and to the right are the dunes. They are seemingly endless and incredible, beautiful, magical. Off street parking for one car.
Interaction with guests
I am available by cell and by email. Susan, the woman who helps me care for the cabin, lives near by and is available personally. She is also, of course, available by phone and email.
Other things to note
The cabin is on a septic tank. The plumbing is therefore fragile. No tampons down the toilet, etc. No smoking and no shoes inside. There are nice rugs and old growth fir floors, both damaged easily by sand and shoes, and there's lots of sand outside! The cabin is small and fragile, but very beautiful, comfy and cozy. Wonderful outside spaces. Lots of birds and squirrels. Big moons and bright stars at night. The hill between the cabin and the ocean protects the cabin and its deck from the ocean winds -- nice.
Even rainy days and nights are good, good. The town of Florence is sweet, has good food. The hotel just down the beach serves good breakfast. Nice to walk down there in the mornings for breakfast, late at night for a drink.
This is a no pets and no smoking house. I have children and grandchildren who have allergies to both dogs and cats. Sorry. I also ask that you remove your shoes inside the cabin; the floors are old-growth fir, beautiful but fragile. This is not a party house. It's a place for a couple, a couple with an infant. Not a good place for toddlers. The stairs are steep and inadequately protective for toddlers. There is a double bed in the master loft bedroom, bunk beds in the 2nd bedroom. Beds are comfortable with nice bedding and comforters. There is no garbage service; I ask that guests take their garbage back home with them (Plastic garbage bags under the sink.) Everything you will need for your comfort and pleasure is there. Cozy. Please treat the cabin gently. The cabin is best for 2 persons. It will sleep four if two people sweet in the double bed. Best if no more than 3.

I am a psychotherapist with a strong literary bent. This picture of me was taken last year when my granddaughter, in the picture with me, was headed off to her first year of college. I love life here in Eugene and look forward to helping you have a most wonderful stay here. If you want to stay longer in Oregon, I also own a cottage over at the coast. I have lived up in Portland, can give you good advice for getting around up there as well.
