Big Stump Beach
By Bruce Olson, for the TODAY, Posted April 7, 2010
The eight-mile stretch of beach between Alsea Bay and the 804 trail is one of the longest empty beaches on the central Oregon coast. No rocks, no tide pools, no driftwood: just wind, hard sand and surf.
In this world, something sticking out of the sand is met with a double take. It doesn’t at first make sense; but there it is, a mile south of Gov. Patterson State Park. This something can be as tall as 14 feet or completely submerged under the water. It can be as round as 40 feet in circumference or just a ripple in the wash.
It is an object of Alsea tribal legend, a subject of numerous tourist photos. It has been burned and chopped and generally beaten and battered, but it stands after hundreds of years, graffiti free.
This is the Big Stump, an ugly name for a majestic piece of tree.
The Big Stump is a survivor. Its roots emerge when the winter storms gouge down far enough. These storms also reveal a nearby nest of other redwood roots, all that remains of the forest that once stood here. The top of the Big Stump has been spared and stands like the prow of a ship or the ruins of the World Trade Center.
The redwood forest was probably submerged by the onrush of waters caused by an off-shore earthquake the night of Jan. 26, 1700; a sudden down drop of land that drowned the trees and created the shape of our coastline.
Additional amenities include: games, puzzles, washer/dryer, alarm clocks - 2, single level home, an ocean view home, outdoor gathering space, private stairs to the beach, binoculars, television - 1, an oceanfront home, vhs movies, deck chairs....Read more

We stayed here for a week the last full week of the month. This is an older house and smells like 'Grandma's house', if you know what I mean. There are enough kitchen utensils for cooking although the coating on the non-stick pans is pretty well worn out, bring non-stick cooking spray. The pans had burnt food on them and the stove top was dirty. I had to scrub both. We had to kill several spiders and an elongated bug that crawled over my GF's face when she was sleeping. The TV has basic channels, although no sports channels at all. When you first look at the channel lineup sheet it looks like a lot of channels, but the second half of the list are a lot of the same channels but in HD. When the weather was nasty we ended up stuck inside with little to watch.
One bedroom is at the back of the house and the other at the front of the house, with the bathroom between them. The back bedroom has the nice sounds of the ocean 24 hrs. a day as the house sits feet from the beach. However, the front bedroom is noisy from the traffic on the coast highway which is only about 100 feet away. Even with earplugs in I could hear the trucks go by at all hours. There is a very large window in this room which probably contributes to the noise penetration.
Having the beach close was nice. It is a gently sloping beach, had little debris, and goes for miles in each direction. We walked into town via the beach and by GPS it was 2.65 miles. We walked the beach every day except the day it rained hard.
There is a compact washer and dryer. You are supposed to wash the towels, bath and kitchen, before you leave. The shortest wash cycle is 30 minutes and the dryer is not very efficient. It took over an hour to dry the small load of towels.
The refrigerator was clean and has trays for making ice. The ocean view from the dining room table was great. The fireplace insert works well for heating the whole house.
