Port Orford and the Castaway Motel are located (click for Google Satellite Map!) about an hour north of the California border. It is the Oregon Coast's oldest townsite/fishing village with a walkable, unspoiled 'Old Town' area. Within six blocks that are ever so gradually being redeveloped, you will find great restaurants, Art Galleries, the beach, and the town's harbor. Here are two Port Orford-related videos created to help raise the visibility of our sleepy Community. They are brief with lots of action shots!

After 43 years in Port Orford, Brenda & I have reached retirement. During the Fall of 2011, the sale of our property closed escrow and we retired our Home by the Sea Bed & Breakfast. (We are now seeking a buyer for our homebythesea.com Domain Name.) During our 23 B&B Seasons we had hosted over 5000 wonderful visitors and referred 100's & 100's of our overflow guests to a friend's ocean view motel a couple of blocks west of us. Rockne Berge is the veteran Manager of the Castaway by the Sea Motel. The 26 units are very well maintained and each has an extraordinary ocean view overlooking Port Orford's harbor and unique crane-launched fishing fleet. People looking for quality, well located Vacation Rentals would do well to consider our venerable neighbors: Battle Rock House; Cat's Meow Vacation Cottage; Castaway Lodge; and, Port Watch.

We sold to the NOAA 2010-11 Award of Excellence "Organization of the Year - Port Orford Ocean Resource Team. Our property is now scheduled to be re-purposed into a fisheries research center, with our former B&B facilities providing lodging for working scientists. P.O.O.R.T's ambitious mission is to pioneer the establishment the Oregon Coast's first community managed, sustainable fishery.
