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.
