The residency is housed in a 900’ cottage coupled with a 300’ studio and an even smaller wood shop and adjoining office. The house is located on a spit of land called Cutler City, nestled within Siletz Bay and just a mile north of the Kernville Tavern made famous by Ken Kesey. The beach is about a five-minute walk, and the house is cozy with a wood burning stove inside and a deck and firepit out back. The neighborhood of Cutler City is populated but still remote; you probably won’t get lonely but it would be best to bring a car. There is a supermarket, tavern, and hardware store all within walking distance, but weather can make walking and biking unpleasant. A car will also give you the opportunity to explore the surrounding landscape.

The house has two bedrooms, each with an adjoined bath. Coast Time will supply linens and an equipped kitchen, but residents are expected to supply their own provisions. In addition there is wireless internet, a television with VHS and DVD (but no cable), a turntable, and a small but growing library of books and records. Pets are welcome on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the residency management to arrange for your pets if you wish to bring them.

The studio space is a converted carport with ample light and electric. The studio has large swinging doors that can be opened for fresh air and natural light. There is also an adjacent wood shop that is equipped with a drill press, miter saw, circular saw, hand saws, disk sanders, air compressor, chain saw, cordless drills, wrenches, files, and assorted hand tools.
