I should have reversed the way I put these photos in order. Now they're sort of backwards. But I promised you a visual treat and
enticement about a great B & B here in Port Orford. It's a large home with an expansive deck all the way around. Outside, no photos of this as we were dodging rain drops, is a rabbit hutch with 2 fat, happy and very friendly bunnies inside. On top of their home is a bunny weather-vane that is just one of the many personal touches that Doug and Karen, owners & operators, have built in to their warm and welcoming home. When I arrived, Doug had been cooking up some kind of mouth-watering stew....yummm.
Back outside again, there are tended hiking trails that I haven't been on yet, but will when the weather dries a bit. I know that at least one of these, and maybe more, lead down to Garrison Lake and beautiful grasses and reeds provide many hidie-holes for multitude of various birds. They plan on building a number of wood duck nests and hopefully their guests will be treated to watching some of nature at work. Inside the house, there is a large library of books, taking up an entire large wall, along with games as you can see in the above photo. The dining tables are works of art......covered with glass and containing different collections that guests can study while they await their coming breakfast. One table holds shells, another agates, another stones......and there are other arts scattered around throughout the house, from local artists, like the one drawing below done by our popular artist, Lance Cox. His work in phenomenal! All the bedrooms have their own private bath, all rooms are warmly and comfortably decorated, have plenty of room and bathrobes are supplied as well. So many little thoughtful details are provided that I can't think of anyone that wouldn't feel like royalty staying here. It's only a short distance to Lake Garrison, beaches on the Pacific, town with it's various art galleries, restaurants, and a few shops of this 'n that. Tomorrow I'll put in some snaps of the bedrooms........they make you want to curl up with a good book and a warm quilt after you've beaten a curious path throughout the Port Orford area all day. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..............
