Crook Point vacation homes are located midway between Gold Beach and Brookings Oregon.
The coastal weather at Crook Point varies by season. Our stretch of coastline is on the Banana Belt of the Southern Oregon Coast, which more resembles California's Bay Area than the areas of the Northern Oregon Coast. In addition, Crook Point is nestled into private coves, providing protection from the North Wind that blows in Curry County during the Summer with late May and June bringing the strongest northwest winds. This is when the annual Pistol River Wave Bash, a world-famous Wind Surfing event, is held just four miles north of Crook Point. With our protected coves and our Spruce Trees, we are well protected from these North winds. These two months bring occasional showers and July brings the occasional summer fog.
Crook Point is the often the northerly limit of the coastal fog belt. Gold Beach's airport, 13 miles north has more fog free days than any other portion of the Oregon Coast. When we do experience fog, it tends to burn off by noon and then may gather back in after sunset creating a lovely atmosphere and crisp evenings. Our rainy season begins in late November and the heavy rain season is December through February. Once we approach the Spring Season, March through May is 50/50 rain and sun. The hillsides and lawns will be thick with green grass making for scenic backdrops next to our majestic coastline. Ansel Adams spent time along our coast and even published a photo of our area names Cape Sebastian 1968. He was known to have referred to our coastline as the "Yosemite of the West Coast."

Brookings and Gold Beach are the nearest towns, both about 12-13 miles north and south of Crook Point. It's best to stock up on food for your stay on your way to Crook Point, if you plan on cooking onsite, as it is about a 20-minute drive each way.
Yes, charcoal barbeques are provided at each home. Please make sure you bring fresh charcoal and lighter fluid for your stay.
Yes, we finally have internet access in the majority of homes as of April 2018 and are working on installing in the Honeymoon Cove house shortly. The service is not too fast and has maximum speed at 1MB due to the rural location of our ranch.
The cell reception is limited at the homes making it the ideal retreat to get away from it all. Verizon seems to be the more reliable carrier and there is some service at a few of the homes.
There are many local rivers and safe swimming spots in the area; however, the rivers can be unpredictable and its important to only swim in posted swimming locations (www.theswimguide.org.) Please exercise caution and common sense. Below are some local recommendations that we enjoy:
