Great tour guide, fantastic house right off the beaten track but well worth a detour. Especially liked the kitchen which must have the very first island workspace.

Tour guides were most informative about the history of the inhabitants, who came from Ireland and operated a dairy when butter was more expensive than beef, and shipped as far as San Francisco.

I enjoyed walking around this historic home after visiting Cape Blanco Lighthouse within the state park. This building takes you back in time when you think about when explorers and pioneers first came to the Oregon Coast. The lace curtains and gingerbread trim gave me the feel of my grandmother's home. I would have taken a tour if it was... More

We took the quick tour and it was fun to learn about the family's life there. Very nicely restored with helpful volunteers.

The guides were very kind and knowledgeable. The... More

A family from Boston moves to Oregon starts a business and builds a beautiful home near the ocean is a true success story. what is equally remarkable is that the home remains in excellent condition today due to volunteers who really enjoy taking care of it and giving tours. I find that the tour docents really become animated when you... More
