I am actually a LOCAL of Brookings. I grew up in Brookings and visit often to see family and friends. I usually stay with family or friends but after a long semester at school my hubby treated us to a weekend at Whaleshead. We reserved OV-10, great ocean view cabin with a hot tub. Each cabin is owned indivudally but Whaleshead has staff that goes into clean each cabin. This cabin was pet friendly as well, which was a must for us. We have a lab/pit mix and he goes everywhere with us. The deck is totally enclosed so we could let our dog lay out there with no worries. This cabin was overall clean and tidy. We had such a great stay, we decided to extend our stay. However this cabin was already booked so we decided to just swtich to another cabin. We switched to OV-6, with hot tub and pet friendly. More expensive and NOT WORTH IT! We were SO disappointed in this cabin, not only was it FILTHY but it literally had ducktape everywhere! On the screen door, the couch in the living room, appliances, etc. It allowed pets but was very close to HIghway 101 and we had to keep an eye on our dog at all times because it is NOT enclosed. Nice oceanview. It had a loft and could sleep more people but it was SO dirty! Basic upkeep and day to day cleaning was clearly NOT done. We went to the restraunt for dinner and I asked the waitress is she knew much about the cabins. That conversation made it possible for us to switch cabins, THANK GOD! We moved to Cabin T-6 as soon as we got back from dinner. THIS CABIN WAS FABULOUS! You could tell the minute you walked in the people who owned this cabin kept up on it and it was a pleasant surprise to change to such a GREAT, homey, clean, accomadating, lovely cabin after our disappointment with OV-6. We LOVED this cabin. SO many accomadations were available. The deck was large and enclosed for our dog. The only drawback was the hot tub did not have oceanview, but it was a great view to look at the stars at night. We extended our stay yet again, because we fell in love with T-6!!! We will ONLY stay in this cabin in the future!! We had a few of my high school friends over for a BBQ and it was a great time. It smelled clean, looked clean and it was worth every penny we paid!!!! There are guest books in most of the cabins, in this cabin they dated back a few years and it was actually a good time reading through each of the enteries! The owners even wrote enteries and updates along the years. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND T-6!! If you can not get into T-6 then I would go for OV-10 from my experience. It was a bit of a rollercoaster ride BUT we discovered T-6 so it was all worth it! The office staff (who have been there for awhile, like Danielle) will tell which cabins they perfer if you ask! PLEASE ASK! There was a new office lady working when we checked out to go home and I overheard her renting out OV-6. I politely asked her if she had been in that cabin and she said no. I explained my disappointments to her and she said she would call back and change that reservation to another cabin. I hope she did because boy was that heartbreaking to go into OV-6. The staff did accomdate and offer to switch us to another cabin when we brought the issues with OV-6 to their attention. So that is well appricated and due to that we will likely return.
Also my hubby has a back problem and the bed in OV-10 was very good for him. Also T-6 bed was comfy as well!
Cabin T-6 all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
