“Romantic & calming, rain or shine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

My fiancée and I had gotten engaged the day before, and arrived at WildSpring on Valentine's Day in the midst of a crazy winter storm. After a crazy night camping in the rain, WildSpring was the warmest, most welcome respite.

Our cabin (Annwyn) was HUGE, with great touches like roses on the table and the wood stove prepped for a fire. The radiant heating warmed our damp feet, and made the spacious cabin feel very cozy. Despite crazy wind and rain outside, our cabin was SO quiet and dark (with the lights out) - perfect for a much needed deep sleep.

We really enjoyed the guest hall - both for tea and a snack upon arrival while staring out at the storm, and the next morning for an incredible breakfast. The french toast dish with homemade berry compote was out of this world.

Other things we loved: Walk-in shower with stone tile. Massage table in the cabin. Hidden artwork and sculptures throughout the grounds. Strong eco-friendly ethic. Less than a 2-minute drive to Port Orford (we strongly recommend Paula's Bistro for dinner). Amazing view from the guest hall and viewing platform, looking out over the ocean and port.

We didn't have time to use the hot tub, and didn't want to break the calm with a selection of one of their hundreds of DVDs, but perhaps next time (we WILL be back).

Lastly, the hosts Dean and Michelle are the type that stay out of your way if you want them to, but are incredibly sweet, welcoming, and helpful whenever you need them. Thank you both for a magical experience - we can't imagine a better way to launch into life's next chapter.

This was an outstanding choice for our road trip. The cabins are nestled into the trees and are beautifully presented. Every little detail has been considered in both the rooms and the guest lodge. After a long day driving it was great to be able to rest in the hot spa overlooking the ocean and then make ourselves a quick meal in the guest hall and chat. Breakfast was AMAZING (the best we have ever had). We travelled with our two sons (16 & 18 years) so this was a family holiday - but it would make a really special romantic location.

My boyfriend and I were the only guests staying here for one night recently, on a trip from Portland to San Francisco. We arrived after dark and followed the instructions in the lovely guest porch just inside the gate. The paths were lit with lights under the trees and everything was really quite magical.
Our cabin was delightful - super-clean and comfortable with lovely touches like candles and chocolates. Best of all was our short trek through the trees to the hot tub, overlooking the ocean and the stars - which we had all to ourselves that evening. Perfect!
In the morning we were treated to an extraordinary breakfast in the guest dining room, prepared by our host who quickly gave us space to enjoy it once he was done presenting it all. It was one of the best breakfasts I've ever had at a B&B, including a quiche, bacon, oatmeal and fruit and nuts, many baked treats and even a fruit cobbler, which I desperately wanted to try but simply didn't have any room for!
I cannot wait to revisit this gem. We felt fortunate to have found it.

This is the best-ever stay for my wife and I except for our honeymoon. We biked there, asked them to have the hot tub ready for us. We caught the end of the sunset over the Pacific and enjoyed the entire stay. Breakfast was incredible and we enjoyed it with another couple staying there - it was a joy to meet them. The innkeepers took care of us, but stayed out of our way so we could enjoy the solitude.

I recently made my third visit to Wild Spring and it never disappoints! I love the solitude, silence and the smell of the trees!! I really like the aspect of being "left alone" with self check-in (if you choose) and being on my own to wander the beautiful grounds. I like that the innkeeper's let you be on your own, but they are more than happy to accommodate your needs. It is perfect for a solitary person, like myself.
The cabins are exquisite with radiant heat floors and cozy beds. Plenty of inspiration to read, sleep, paint, journal...
Breakfast is always delicious with something homemade from the innkeeper's kitchen, and is enjoyed in the main guest house with an ocean view. You are free to go in there at any time for reading, games, hot chocolate or watching the sunset. I have only used the hot tub once, but it is sooo relaxing and inviting.
I LOVE Wild Spring.

I am so disappointed that we only had one night here while driving the Oregon coast but boy did we ever pack a lot into the 16 hours we had there. We arrived at around 7 pm and the owner met us in the parking lot and wheeled our bags through the old growth forest to our cabin. We sprung for the most expensive cabin, which wasn't terribly expensive, but at $ 295 a night in off season it's getting up there. It was worth every penny! It is called "Annwyn" and is the biggest cabin with a separate bedroom and the only one with a wood stove. We built a great fire and I stayed up until almost 3 am enjoying it and cabin because I wanted to get my monies worth. There is a HUGE hot tub up by the owners home and the building that houses the guest area for breakfast. Breakfast was good but pretty simple. The owners really left us to ourselves but would be readily available if you needed something. We hit the hot tub around 8:30 and stayed in until 10:00 pm. Perfect heat and no other guests so we had it to ourselves. It was awesome listening to the ocean in the distance. During the day you can actually see the ocean from the tub. This place was unlike any place we have ever stayed in the past. Very zen like and super cool in this beautiful place. There are about 3 restaurants just about a mile drive away. Highly recommend this property. It's the type of place that you stay where years later you talk about how amazing it was. Spend the extra and stay here!

Room Tip: All the cabins are located in the same area with no view. Annwyn is the biggest with a separate bed...

All reviews are in the eyes & experiences of the beholder. That being said, for us this place was over rated and over priced. At $300 a night, we like just a little more service, or a fabulous view that makes up for it. So, for us this place was lacking. I don't like to clean up after myself at breakfast, for instance, when I'm on break :)
Also, the cabins are small and crowded with stuff. You have to take a cart with your luggage, & then return the cart to the car park, & it was raining & chilly. We would not stay there again.

WildSpring, Owner at WildSpring Guest Habitat, responded to this review, 25 October 2013
Hi, we're sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. We would have been happy to come down and handle your luggage if you had called us on the intercom at the little checkin gazebo when you arrived (this is so guests don't have to come all the way up to the office just to check in). And while it was nice you felt the need to clean up after yourself at the breakfast buffet, that wasn't necessary. As far as the view, the rain probably obscured it.

As we explain in our website, we design our service to be behind the scenes. We try to ensure anything our guests need is right there when guests first realize they need something, and anything else, we are always there and answer the intercom 24/7 to offer any assistance needed....whether it's bringing a bottle of wine to your cabin or making dinner reservations, or coming down to help you and your luggage back to the car when you leave.

WildSpring is a different kind of place and we go to great lengths on our site to make sure people understand that before they choose to stay with us. Vacations are important and we hope you found the rest of your trip more to your taste.
