Riverfront getaway on Oregon's central coast. Many people are searching for a small piece of Oregon to call their own: to escape the crowded public campgrounds, to hear the peaceful sounds of evening, to sleep under the stars, to make memories with their families. Few such places are available on a navigable river. This property offers roughly 1.5 acres of level ground along the beautiful Yaquina River and 9 acres of woods on the slopes of the coastal hills. It has no legal road access through the adjacent timber properties, so bring your fishing boat or kayak and escape from civilization. The public boat ramp is just 2.5 miles downstream, an easy paddle especially when the tide is rising. It even has electricity! There was a cabin here in the past, and the seller has kept the electrical service in place.10.51 total acres, divided by the Portland & Western short-line railroadMature oak & conifer timber on slopesFuel your campfire from your own woodlotFish the river for chinook & coho salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, bass, perch, troutYaquina Bay offers the above fish plus lingcod, rockfish, cabezon, clams, crabs6 miles by river to Toledo, 14 to Yaquina Bay, 18 to oceanRight to rebuild cabin is doubtful; buyer to do all due diligenceNearest neighbor is across riverOne hour's drive to the I-5 corridor, and 2.5 hours to Portland.Close to Newport, with its spectacular scenery, great beaches, and famous Oregon Coast Aquarium. Even closer to the small town of Toledo in case you just want to boat down to the public marina and walk to a nearby pub or restaurant. This place is what Oregon is all about.
