Cozy Turtle Rock Resort is on the Rugged Oregon Coast and Has Beach Access, a Fishing Guide, Classes and Cottages for Sale
Gold Beach is the home of Turtle Rock, a cute all ages resort and vacation home community spread over 24 acres of prime Oregon coastal land. Fern grottos and a tidal pond are part of the common grounds.
Turtle Rock contains more than 100 cottage, RV, and tent sites. New and resale cottages (park models) are available, although the resort does not advertise this fact. Many homes come furnished and with appliances. Trex decking, hot tubs, and barbeques are common features. The smallest cottage has 400 square feet of living space plus a 150 square foot loft. The biggest is about 790 square feet. Turtle Rock welcomes RV "workampers" and is popular with other part-time residents.
Prices start at about $80,000. The $500 to $600 monthly lot lease includes water, TV, garbage service, and grounds upkeep. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they are bound to change.
Cottages are also for lease. Owners who are not full-time occupants join the rental pool to help offset expenses and generate income. Turtle Rock Resort rents the cottages for the owners, saving them some of the hassles and headaches of being a landlord.
People here have unfettered access to seven miles of beach. The community has a shared meeting room, a kitchen, an exercise room, a store, and a laundry. A summer season fishing guide is part of the staff, and neighbors meet for yoga, education classes, and holiday potlucks. A bar and grill is within walking distance, and the Arch Rock Brewery is just across Hunter Creek.

Oregon became a territory in 1846, but its request to become a state was bogged down by Congress and the free versus slave state debate. Southern politicians finally allowed Oregon to enter the Union as a free state on February 14, 1859.
Although the 42nd parallel marks its southern border, water delineates most of the Beaver State's boundaries. The Columbia River separates Washington from Oregon on the north. The Snake River helps form the state's eastern border with Idaho. The Pacific Ocean is on its western edge.
Oregon is one of the country's most geographically diverse states and is characterized by volcanoes, dense forests, high deserts, and abundant bodies of water. For its latitude, its climate is mild. Mount Hood, at 11,249 feet, is the state's highest point. Crater Lake, the center of the state's only national park, is the deepest lake in the United States.
Timber, fishing, and hydroelectric power have pushed the state's economy in the past. Technology, however, is finding a firm footing. Tektronix and Intel helped establish the state's Silicon Forest. Notable companies who are or have been part of the forest include Google, eBay, Airbnb, and WebMD. Sportswear companies like Columbia and Nike also bring in billions to the state.
Portland, the state's most populous city, has more breweries in its boundaries than any other in the world. As of 2016, there were more than 60. The city boasts the world's smallest park. Mill Ends Park, dedicated in 1948, is a total of 452 square feet.
