Welcome to The Western Whitehouse!
If you’re into ocean sport-fishing, sightseeing, whale-watching or just enjoying ocean sunsets, The Western Whitehouse on the Southern Oregon Coast gives you so much to choose from. The dramatic rocky coastline dips and soars above the always-changing Pacific Ocean, and its many coves and promontories dazzle visitors with panoramic views, fiery sunsets and tide pools teeming with life. A short drive in any direction will take you to historic lighthouses, vantage points perfect for watching whales and the area’s many other marine mammals, world class golf courses, fascinating estuaries and a stunning expanse of wind-sculpted sand dunes.
In addition to beautiful views and shelter from Pacific storms, the bay offers visitors excellent fishing, crabbing and clamming. Coos, Lower Umpqua, Siuslaw and Coquille Indians lived in the area for thousands of years before European settlers arrived in the early 1800s. J.C. Tolman of the Coos Bay Co. founded the busy port in 1854, and it quickly became a thriving shipping and commercial center.
Today, North Bend and Coos Bay still holds much of its early coastal-frontier character. A tour of the area showcases many turn-of-the-century homes, businesses and public buildings, and the waterfront districts remain a hub of commerce and leisure.
Our family loves the Southern Oregon Coast which is also known as, "The Secret Coast" because there are no crowds compared to the rest of the Western Coast. We purchased The Western Whitehouse because we enjoy vacationing here ourselves. Not only does the house have the benefit of the magnificent views, it is also very private; with the feeling of being in the country on the 1½ acres of land. Enjoy views of the Coos Bay and McCullough Bridge from your windows and deck and evening views of the city lights across the bay. After a day of fun, there is nothing better than relaxing and enjoying a family BBQ on the large deck overlooking the bay.
