Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our only house rules are quiet after the sun goes down, and no smoking indoors. Prosper Village has a Noise Ordinance after dark, so please talk quietly outside and no playing music. No parties allowed!

This unique, quirky, happy old house has been decorated Swedish style in honor of the builder, Axel Sandstrom. Axel was a Swedish sailor who, in 1907, wrecked his ship on the Coquille River bar, swam ashore, and built this and several other homes, raising his family here. He signed up for the local coast guard and became a valued member of the community. His picture and a picture of the house when it was new hang in the dining room.

We have fenced in the back yard to contain your children and furry friends. Surrounded on three sides by alder and white cedar woods, the back yard is a great place to sit, relax, sunbathe and birdwatch. We're back from the ocean a couple of miles, so we're warmer and less foggy than the beach itself.

The beds are all very cozy, with high thread count sheets and feather comforters with freshly washed covers, so you have a good excuse for sleeping in! At the Swedish House, time has a way of becoming unimportant.

Allow me to recommend a delightful day of activities in the Bandon area!

First, find some way to get out of bed and get dressed. I suggest tennis shoes or boots and a jacket with a hood.

Make the 5 minute drive into Old Town Bandon and have breakfast at the Minute Cafe, which is a local landmark from the 1930's. Locals eat here, and it has an old-timey flavor. While you're waiting for your hashbrowns and bacon, call Bandon Beach Riding Stables (541-347-3423) to make a sunset horseback ride reservation.

Done with breakfast? Enjoy an easterly stroll down the street, pop into the book store, the home dec stores, art gallery... but don't miss Coastal Mist Chocolates! They hand-make tiny, exotic, exquisite chocolates TO DIE FOR. I'm not even a chocoholic but I'm crazy about their confections!

You'll stroll east, past the Visitor Center. Stop in, sign the guest book, and get a map of Bullard's Beach State Park (you'll need it for later). Ask them what hours the lighthouse is open. And ask if the art glass place up the road is blowing glass today... it's so fun to watch!

Continue east, cross the highway to Brewed Awakenings and put in your order for box lunches to be retrieved at noon (I know you're full of bacon and chocolate right now, but that won't last long!).

You'll see the Bandon Historical Society on 101 a block away... they ask for a small entrance fee, but it's well worth it. You'll see amazing pictures of Bandon the way it was before the big fire in 1936, and lots of cool household artifacts, guns and military paraphernalia.

Stroll east past the quilt shop (let mom look for a minute), then pop into the new Face Rock Creamery for Seth's sourdough and a hunk of cheese for later.

It's noon... go back and get your box lunches and hop back in the car. You're off to Bullard's Beach State Park which is north of town across the Coquille River.

At the State Park, ask the ranger where the Bullard's family cemetery is (the trail isn't marked, but it's back by the dumping station... rangers don't always know exactly where it is, so here you have a chance for an adventure!).

There's a play structure for the kids in case they're still squirrelly from the museum visit. Head on out to the light house, which should be open from 11 to 5 on Fridays and weekend days. If you climb out on the jetty, remember that the ocean claims a tourist or two every year. If it looks scary, that's because it's dangerous.

By now you are hungry... get out your picnic lunch and enjoy the scenery :) Don't forget to look for Japanese tsunami debris in the driftwood piles. Even a common water bottle might have Japanese writing on it. None of it is radioactive.

Now is a good time for a nap back at the Swedish House, that's what I would do!

Up from your nap, have some coffee or tea and some of your bread and cheese, put on your WARM clothing, layers and hats and gloves if you have them. The beach is windy in the evening. Now it's time to check in at the Riding Stable, which is through town, make a right on 11th, almost to the end of the road, left on Beach Loop and go until you see the sign on the left. The horses are very pleasant, anyone can ride them!

After your awesome beach ride, I think you should go have chinese food in town at the Asian Garden on Hwy 101. The prices are great, platters are huge, and you can hear the cooks back in the kitchen speaking Mandarin (or Cantonese?).

Now you are exhausted and stuffed... go to bed and sweet dreams!

For a different day full of adventure in Bandon, look at the Norwegian House vrbo listing page!
