About this listing
Norwegian Ship Captain's house has 2 king beds, one queen, in 3 bedrooms. Clawfoot tub, original kitchen cupboards/counter, all in fenced yard. Prosper Village Noise Ordinance prohibits loud talking/music after sunset. No parties!
This lovely home from the past features WiFi, cable t.v., and sleeps 6 adults in three bedrooms.
The Norwegian House is a circa 1900 hand-built two story wood home in Prosper Village, Oregon (5 minutes from the tourist town of Bandon and Bandon Dunes Golf Course). It features original walls, windows, and floors. Original hand crafted kitchen cabinets and counter tops are still in place. Each room has a cozy new portable oil heater, and you can build a fire in the woodstove as well. Bandon never gets too cold or too hot, so you will be comfortable!
Prosper Village was populated around 1890 by Scandinavian and European fishermen, boat builders, gold miners, and loggers. It had a school, a post office, and a store. Now it is a beautiful, sleepy collection of old homes on the Coquille River, that survived the 1936 firestorm that leveled the city of Bandon.
All adult beds have duck duvet comforters with high thread count sheets. We have selected vintage and antique furniture with a Norwegian sensibility to complement the house's style.
Modern amenities include coffee maker, range and oven, refrigerator, microwave, and indoor bathroom!
You're only 5 minutes from world-class golf and dining at Bandon Dunes, horseback riding on the beach, charter fishing at the boat basin, taffy, toys, and souvenirs in Old Town Bandon!
Please go out on the dock to watch the sunset over the river, hike to the top of the hill for a peek at the ocean, or make a bonfire at night in the meadow. You'll have the Norwegian House to yourself, with washer and dryer on the porch. Firewood is in the wood shed in the parking area.

I'm a grandmother of 5 (boys!), into growing and eating vegetables, into Montessori, travelling, knitting, quilting, and coffee! I spend my weekdays doing family history research, cooking, reading about nutrition.
My favorite shows are "Who Do You Think You Are?", "Biggest Loser", "Finding Your Roots", "Flip This House", and PBS is always going on my radio!
Our home is in Bandon, Oregon, but my dear hubby is working right now on a water project in California so we're on a protracted holiday down here! I just got a job at Disneyland, so I'm in my personal version of heaven!!
I hope you'll choose to stay at one of our vacation houses... we'll treat you like family (like the part of your family that is still speaking to you... just kidding.)
