Finally getting around to this review even though my visit was last fall, but obviously I’m still dreaming of it… there’s no place quite like this, with the combination of privacy/quiet but not feeling too remote; views of this part of the NW coast with its tall rocky bluffs but also easy and private access to the beach; and luxe yet rustic cabins. I chose cabin 14 because I liked that the bedroom isn’t a completely closed off room, and is open to all of the corner windows and the view, and the fantastic rock fireplace in the center of the cabin. I think 14 is the priciest cabin but is well worth it. The style is mid-century modern-ish, with sloping wood ceiling angled toward the ocean views and a skylight in the kitchen/dining area. If you get a good rain while you are there, and chances are decent, you can hear it pattering on the roof, very peaceful! The kitchen is nicely stocked with all of the tools you need, and bonus a quiet dishwasher. The guest binder on the living room table is very helpful with lots of info on places to visit and eat in the area, and I think something like 14 pages! listing all of the DVD’s you can borrow from the office, a great selection sorted by genre. It’s also fun looking through the past guestbooks and reading how other guests have spent their time here. Don’t bother overpacking as clothing storage is minimal, no closet or drawers in the bedroom, just one shelf/bench and some hanging hooks; plus some more hanging hooks over the bench near the front door. A nice touch in the bathroom is that the shower has dual heads on opposite ends – so a couple can shower at the same time if you want, or if not, you can still have your own ‘end’ of the shower to store your personal bath stuff. Wifi is a bit spotty and not fast, but likely you didn’t come here for that. There is a decent selection of channels on cable. Don’t miss the cinnamon rolls that you can pick up in the office, or also can order ahead of time to have them waiting in the freezer for you... some of the best cinnamon rolls ever. The daily maintenance staff is very unobtrusive, but every day you have stocked firewood and garbage/recycling checked. A stay at Iron Springs had been on my bucket list since I’d seen online how they remodeled a few years back, and I’m so happy I had the chance to visit!…
We have stayed in a number of different cabins at Iron Springs. This time I chose #16 for our "winter at the ocean" break. This cabin is on the upper bluff, right on the edge, facing directly out to the Pacific Ocean. The cabins are all equipped with nearly everything that you could need -- except the food you will eat. If there is something that you find that you need, it is likely available at the well equipped Store/Office. All seasons have their special feeling at Iron Springs. For our winter visit, we had the expected storms with wind and rain, and also a day of (unexpected) sunshine! For one of the rainy days, we chose to sit inside by the fire, read books, and watch the ocean through the huge window. Heavenly!! We will continue to return.
Our family has been coming here for years and love it. The cabins are comfortable and inviting. Kids have lots of fun checking out movies, exploring the beach, and jumping the waves. The views from most of the cabins are amazing and the sound and smell of the ocean can’t be beat.
You know those places you find that you don't really want to tell folks about? Mostly because you don't want your 'new favorite place' to become over crowded. Well, this is one of those places. I have driven by this place several times and thought I should check it out. This time my husband wanted to stay here, even selecting the exact cabin for us. It was the PERFECT spot for a get-away. Our cabin was on the cliff with window facing both the river and the ocean. It was stunning to be able to wake up and look out to see both. The cabin also had a deck facing the ocean with chairs and table. What a place! The kitche comes fully stocked with everything needed, minus food.
For our anniversary we stayed two nights at the famous Iron Springs Resort, a long-lived destination for generations. Our cabin was one of the newer ones, higher up the hill, with splendid views of the beach and ocean horizon through the trees, While the place was full, with several families and couples, our experience was quiet and peaceful. The office/store has just about anything you might need, in the way of food, board games, souvenirs and even DVDs. Though why even turn on the tv in a setting like this? Highly recommended.
