For those of you that love a bustling harbor town Depoe Bay  could be just the ticket!


  depoebridge.jpg   bg3.jpg


Boasting the worlds smallest navigable harbor and home to the Coast Guard, countless fishing boats and private craft. Often called a "fairy tale" village it boasts a long strip of unique and interesting shops where visitors and residents seek out maritime collectibles, enjoy homemade tasty candy, browse the galleries and shop for apparel.  Definitely one of the biggest attractions though are the whales. Depoe Bay is self named the "Whale Watching Capital of Oregon" and rightly so. From the seawall that lines the main street, crowds form to watch these big mammals as they spout, frolic, lounge and even rub on the rocks near the shoreline.  Depoe Bay has a resident pod of whales that can be viewed about 10 months of the year.  In the heart of Depoe Bay is the Oregon State Parks Whale Watching Center .  At the center you can watch the whales, view whale artifacts, watch whale movies, get information and enjoy watching them from two levels of viewing rooms. If you like a quaint town with good eats (especially seafood), a rugged and dramatic coastline...this  could be it! Click here to see Properties for Sale in Depoe Bay. depoewahle.jpg

Just south of Depoe Bay sits yet another gem of an area. Perched on volcanic cliffs is the private community of Little Whale Cove.

This area unites the Oregon forest to the Pacific ocean. The 268 homes of Little Whale Cove have the only private beach on the Oregon coast - a spectacular shimmering lagoon! There are several miles of walking and biking trails as well as indoor tennis and a pool. Home builders were encouraged to blend in and harmonize with the natural setting which has created a community in step with nature. Are you the type that like to be "in the hub"?

Do you like a little bigger town that has some of the major stores but also has quaint, historic shopping areas as well? Do you like to stroll down the street in the summer and hear live music or sit up over the harbor and watch the seals play? Are there times you are craving more serous entertainment? Newport is the town that fills the bill for the ying & yang in life.

If the ocean does not call your name in it’s roar, but the idea of fishing off your own dock does then consider casting a look at Otis or the Siletz River areas

Homes range from rustic cabins to year round luxury abodes. Prices tend to be somewhat less then the ocean communities and the summer temperatures higher - not a bad compromise! Click here to see Home & Land for sale on the Siletz River.
