WildSpring Guest Habitat…Nourishment for the Soul
From the moment you arrive at WildSpring Guest Habitat, you get a distinct sense that this place is unlike anything you’ve experienced before. As you enter the cabin suite area, a sense of well-being and relaxation wash over you like a gentle breeze, relieving you of life’s stress and worries.
After you get settled and take in the luxuriousness of the accommodations, excitement to survey the grounds overwhelms you. You’ll find five acres of wonderment high above the Port Orford, Oregon coastline to explore. The property has so many dimensions that every day you’re there, it’s like a new sagacity of discovery. Various textures, paths, meditation areas and artwork will incite and entice your every sense.
The cabin accommodations are nestled among soaring trees, each with a buffer from the next, providing the ultimate in privacy for solitude and/or romance. Each cabin is distinctly furnished in a modern and plush manner with the work of local artists adorning the walls. There are overstuffed love-seats with chenille throws for warmth. The pillow-top beds are extremely comfortable and the down comforter makes sleeping quite cozy.
Accommodations come with a refrigerator, a massage table, an iPod compatible stereo (which I love!) and an LCD TV with DVD player. However, there is no broadcast or cable reception—never fear though, there is an extensive DVD library in the guest hall.
The bathrooms are also quite lavish with a zen-like feel. The showers’ slate walls and the cobblestone floor and the bountiful rain-shower head made me feel one with nature…as if showering outdoors, but in the seclusion and comfort of my cabin suite.
While the cabin suites are nestled among the trees, your journey through the property toward the guest hall and the open-air hot tub will take you up in elevation and greet you with the most fantastic of views! The guest hall is a large open space with several tables used for breakfast or just relaxing while playing a game or taking in the views. You’ll find a library of over 500 DVDs that you can check out and take to your room…plus books, CDs and games. On a nice day you may opt to have your coffee out on the expansive deck. There is also a full kitchen at your disposal for light food preparation if you care to rustle up something for lunch or dinner.
When you’re at WildSpring, you can’t miss a chance to take a dip in the immense slate-covered hot tub. Not only will the soak relax you, but the views and the sounds of the ocean below will astound you.
When it comes to relaxing, the grounds at WildSpring will provide just that. Walking the labyrinth for example can provide calmness and a sense of being one with thyself. Strolling the trails and admiring the abundance of artwork is pure joy along with the various places to sit and meditate. The property at WildSpring is uniquely situated and acts as a buffer from the often strong winds of Port Orford; it really makes you feel like you’re in a private sanctuary.
Breakfast at WildSpring is served buffet style with items like fresh fruit salad, a wide selection of breads, specially prepared granola, preserves, steel-cut oatmeal, yogurt, gourmet coffee and a hot course that changes each morning—Michelle will cook up something fresh and delectable, from an egg puff, scones to stuffed French toast.
Whether you’re an eco-centric purist or a big city dweller, WildSpring Guest Habitat has struck the perfect balance between luxury and being environmentally conscience…either way, you’re assured an amazing and memorable stay—WildSpring is nourishment for the soul.
