About

Come stay in a hand-hewn home from the past, built in 1895, before electricity and indoor plumbing, when brave souls from Europe settled in Oregon, bringing their knowledge of shipbuilding, fishing, and logging to a wilderness teeming with salmon and forests! Tall wooden ships were built in the river right in front of the house, by master shipbuilder Emil Heukendorf, from Denmark, and his stepson Nels Nelson after him. The house has been in the same family for 100 years, and although it now has modern amenities, most of the structure remains the way it was when giant saws turned trees into lumber to rebuild San Francisco, sidewheelers took milk and passengers up and down the river, and the salmon were so thick, you could walk across the river on their backs... almost.
