We can't wait to go back and try out some of the other trailers.. and the cabins.. and the lodge. Such a unique place we fell in love with it instantly. My husband and I drove from Vancouver, BC and spent 3 nights in the Zelmar Cruiser with our 1.5yr old, it was the most relaxing time we have had in ages and definitely worth the drive. The place has an overall good vibe, lots of kids but not strictly families, a great mix of people. The trailers are amazing, so stylish and well-equipped but might not be for everyone, they are quite old so a love of kitsch and everything vintage is required, this isn't a regular hotel. Make sure to check out the thrift shop trailer plus cool art, records and jewellery for sale in the lodge. The beach is very close and there's a great bike path (you can borrow bikes from the souwester!) which our lil' one loved running along. There are lots of little towns in the area to explore as well and great antique stores and diners etc. Seaside and Cannon Beach, OR are less than 30min away so we made day trips but found Seaview/Long Beach more laid back. The Adrift hotel in Long Beach has a great restaurant on the top floor which serves westcoast style food and craft cocktails. The Sou'wester was really the highlight of the trip though and we will definitely be back!
