"A magical place - Powerful. Thank you. We needed some peace, some beauty. A place to breath. think, fully laugh. WildSpring was all that and so much more. Being here was an honor. We're sad to leave."

"Our stay has been perfect. We were so impressed with everything. You both have put a lot of thought into this place, from the candles, to the robes, wine glasses, and the wood for the fireplace. Everything has been perfect. We loved the atmosphere. Whoever designed and decorated everything did an amazing job. We both want to come back. This is the most memorable place I've stay so far. Thanx for everything. This has been the best Valentine's weekend! Everything was perfect!"
Chad & Larissa S., Eureka, CA 2.11.11
"Last night while enjoying the spa and the solitude under the stars, I was alone. I felt as a fetus nestled in the womb of this cosmic, spiritual nirvana. As mother earth's breath rose from the ocean, slowly climbing the bluff. I felt my spirit warming inside my body, evanescing, emanating from my fingers, my toes, my eyes. Gently her breath caressed me from my human shell, lifting me upward, like a mist rising in the canyons. My essence was gathering above the spa which gleamed like an emerald eye into the soul. I was drifting into the darkness of the night, out amongst my friends the firs, lifting higher ever so purposefully. Rising above the ferns, into the canopy. Below me I could feel the labyrinth calling to me, beckoning forth my inner energy, my chi. My spirit again began to gather, to intensify, to warm, gradually centering. Warmer and warmer, hotter and hotter, glowing, illuminating, swirling into oneness. Hotter and hotter.=, brighter and brighter, deeper and deeper,= into understanding and purpose. Melting away the shackles of fear and confusion, burning away the reigns of society, the limits of the human self. White hot rays, fingers of pure light began stretching from my center energy, reaching outward and inward. The forest began to warm, to fluoresce. My spirit energy enveloping nature, dissolving boundaries, absorbing into consciousness, into mother earth. She became me, and I here, one. Our awareness is boundless, forever knowing, forever belonging, forever. We are, we're here, we're home. Complete."
"What a unique place - no phones, no TV, no noise. Just us & nature - exactly how we like our vacations! We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary this week, & had a wonderful time.

“So today is check-out, as I am writing this my “let’s get up and go” husband is still snoozing! The sleep we have gotten here is amazing. I still can’t believe that I got up with the alarm (9 a.m.!), and he’s still in bed! We cam here with no expectations and we are leaving here with smiles in our hearts. Although I am on a cane, I have made small efforts to check out all of the beauty of this property. What fun it is to see all of the buddhas and little things to remind me just to BE while walking around! We had an awesome guided meditation with Michelle and Dean, and even the other cabin couple joined in. My hubby did Tai Chi with Dean one morning and he came back to the cabin just smiling and ready to conquer the world…well, in a good way.:) ! I truly have enjoyed this, and I know that we will definitely be back as soon as we are able. The energy here has brought us such a sense of calm, and we are taking that home with us!”

Michael & Alanna, Ashland, OR
“Dear WildSpring! We loved our stay! Just wish we did not have to run off so quickly. Every time you turn round there is another detail waiting for you The moment we saw the spa and lookout last night, we lost our breath. I felt like a little kid at summer camp, so excited to see everything. As we were soaking our tired bodies, we saw a shooting star! How special! I’ve only seen 2 other shooting tars in my 30 years of life! Now your lovely home has been the 3rd. Hope to visit again! Truly.”
Heather & Chuck, PA 2.16.08
“Once more WildSpring has provided a nocturnal resting place, traveling, arrived after dark and soon to depart on this misty morn. Yet this time is different. I wisely chose to be encouraged by Dean, despite my late arrival, and immersed myself in your warm, protected waters It is an experience I will not fail to enjoy on each subsequent visit! This morning was different, too. I awoke just before first light, sleepy yet mindful of my once-again and soon-to-be delight in watching the atmosphere whiten around the(can’t read). Content to lie in bed, propped now by the pillow, I had a great idea. Why not light the candles and start the fire? That wood-burning fireplace is exactly what drew me to this cabin nearly 3 years ago. And here I was on y third stay without ever having opened the elegant little doors with their (can’ read) glass. Truth be told, I had always assumed there was not enough time to build a proper fire and deal with it before I could sit back and bask in its smoky-smelling warmth. How pleased was I to open the doors finding that proper fire built and waiting for my simple match! Again, I promise myself and al this is wise, good; cozy to light this fire on each and every night and/or morning that I am fortunate enough to find myself in this resting place. With gratitude & appreciation.”

“Our honeymoon stay here was a tremendously beautiful, serene, relaxing experience. Every detail was perfect, from the gorgeously appointed cabin to the phenomenal outdoor spa. We are recharged, rejuvenated and at peace. Thank you!”
Erin & John P., Boston, MA 9.65.06
“Time here has gone far too quickly! Loved this sacred, enchanted forest! But though “the words are lovely, dark & deep, I have miles to go & promises to keep before I sleep.” This sanctuary is a place to which to return! I take its peace & tranquility with me. Thank you Michelle & Dean. I appreciate all you have done & continue to do, so that we, your grateful guests, may renew & fill up again. Great blessings to you & through you.”
Moira F., Redondo Beach, CA 9.3.06
“The cabin resort provided a serene atmosphere. A wonderful break from the rest of the busy world. There is a lot of detail put into each aspect of the cabins, the atmosphere, the breakfast and the overall setup. The placement of all the notes are very helpful. The staff are very friendly and willing to meet our need of comfort. This being a 9 yr anniversary for my wife and I. It was very pleasurable to have experienced some peace and quiet. Also a great spiritual strength surrounding the facility. Thank you for a great stay.”
Christopher & Heather D., Salem, OR 8.6.06
“The quality of silence at the world’s edge is of a nature most unique. It is a silence that clears a place for the soul to reach into the spiritual world. Like the arcing of waves, the silence here, at night, on a calm star-imbued evening, clears a path to thought/thinking. Clear thoughts, like the ordering principle of human life, bring clarity and a sense of purpose. To fulfill one’s destiny is a grace beyond measure. Enjoyed our Stay.”
Wendy P., 7.23.06

“Once again, you’ve reminded me of what the “eco” means in ecology! (eco = house). Still no soak for me, but I have something to look forward to next time. It’s always best to leave a special place wanting more time there. So, until next time…”
Joseph K., 4.28.06
“The decision to come to WildSpring was utterly spontaneous…validating, yet again, the magic of such swift decisions, guided by feeling, intuition…and fate! From the peace of this cabin, Annwyn, to the restless majesty of Sister Ocean at y our doorstep, this is a wondrous world – a place like none we’ve ever seen. I have two new friends, the greatest gift of all. Our deep thanks and appreciation.”
Mary M., 4.1.06

“Coming from a large city…the overall tranquility of this place put us all in a state of harmony and peace. The best 2 nights of sleep we have had in years.”
“Sweet sweet sanctuary! As all those before us, we enjoyed our place, these grounds, the Jacuzzi with the spectacular views. Great job…paying attention to all the fine little details. We look forward to our paths crossing once again… Thank you.”
Shery & Scot, 8.29.05
“’To a green thought in a green shade’ Lao Tse. We came here to literally rehabilitate. I fell down stairs while preparing for departure to Mexico for vacation. With 3 fractures in 1 leg and a sprain in the other – there was almost nothing I could do…finding this spot brought therapeutic intervention to a therapist & her family. A cool redwood forest to encircle you. A cozy cottage to contain you. Solitude, nature’s finest scenery, inspirational but simple décor, familial companionship all merge into a lovely and legendary visit. Waiting to see what else will unfold. Thank you for your time & talent infused into this setting.”
Barbara R., San Francisco, CO 8.13.05
“The Beauty Way. Beauty above you. Beauty below you. May beauty surround you. May you always walk in beauty. – an old Navajo Prayer.
Juliana N. and Jam M, Petaluma, CA 1.29.06
“I have really enjoyed being here. Everything was wonderful and I appreciate the special touches you have added to this place. I have been inspired and renewed. I will love to come back again. Thank you.”
Patrice M., Sumner, WA 7.29.05
“We really appreciate the love & dedication you’ve infused into the room. With way too hectic a schedule at work, I was hoping to find someplace I might begin to relax. From the moment the car door opened & we were suffused with high-altitude, clean, pine forest air, I hoped my expectations might be surpassed. When I saw the room I was thrilled. Tonight there’s an electrical storm over the ocean…is there any better theatre? We love it. P.S. The fireplace is inordinately cute!”
Sandi & Chuck R., 7.23.05
“What an awesome & spiritual place you have created here. We think this is the best place we have stayed (we’ve stayed at several B&Bs). The trees outside all the windows, the décor (I think we are going to recreate this décor in our bedroom!), the atmosphere, all the lovely details, CD, massage table, water bottles, hooks, lovely lamps (I love lamps), throws on couches, etc! I think we will send my parents for a weekend get-away – they would love it as well – it almost makes me cry! Thank you so much.”
Wes & Mary Ann, Jacksonville, OR 7.18.05
“WildSpring exceeded all our expectations! The attention to detail, personal touches and extremely comfortable surroundings were the highlight of our entire vacation! It’s a shame there aren’t more places like yours – but then again, it allows us to appreciate you and what you’ve done all that much more. We hope this won’t be our last visit out to see you. All the best!”
Brian & Kristie, 7.12.05
“Can’t tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. The accommodations are spectacular. The Atmosphere is perfect. We will be back!”
Jeff & Margie B. 5.30.05
“WildSpring is truly a special place! Our two-night stay was so peaceful and enjoyable – the cabin is perfect, the grounds are beautiful, and the Great Hall has everything we might need, plus an incredible ocean view! Thanks so much, we will return.”
Cathy D. and Ted P., Seattle, WA 4.5.05
“You have done an excellent job in creating this beautiful place. I have found my niche! I arrived past dark, weary from my work & travels. After eleven hours of deep slumber, I awoke to the easy solitude of fog moving through the tall firs at dawn. While I lament not being able to soak in your tub and enjoy your breakfast, I am better off none the less as I leave this early morn. Until next time.”
Joseph K., Portland, OR 3.8.05
“This has been the most relaxing weekend we have ever had. Thank you for all the wonderful touches in our cabin. We hope to be able to come back again."
