"This is such a beautiful place with everything so well thought and lovingly presented. The cabins are carefully nestled in the young forest in such a way that everyone has privacy and comfort. Up the slope overlooking the ocean is a clean well-designed Lodge with kitchen and dining areas. Just below is one of the nicest hot-tub pools I've every soaked in, with spectacular views out into the Pacific. We certainly hope to come back before long."

The quiet solitude, the wind through the trees has no equal."

"A time of celebration, a new life together, a blessed event in the presence of God & family, our two children were joined together in marriage." Not an uneventful journey of course! The groom took a nice trip to the emergency room after 20 ft fall during rock climbs on the beach - badly broken foot - crutches as an accessory to the wedding suit! Michelle & Dean were amazing in their care and concern - a wheelchair delivered within a few hours, incredible accommodation to our every need - we can't express our wonder & gratitude - incredible! A beautiful wedding, love, flowing (okay some tears -he's the baby!) The fireworks !! WOW! What a show. They looked like they were right on top of us. Wonderful music prepared for the show (thank you Michelle!) I know the kids will be back, but we may sneak in a trip of our own. Thank you for allowing us to have this time with you and your little piece of heaven!"

"My husband Junior and I came for 5 nights to celebrate our honeymoon. This was the perfect place for us. From the massages in our cabin, to the hot tub, to the secluded, peaceful feeling, it was perfect. This area was also beautiful. We took the Cape Blanco trail outlines in "From Sea To Summit" and were blown away with beautiful views and calm woods. We were kayaking with South Cost Tours and loved Dave, our guide. We went horse back riding in Bandon and felt so romantic. The WildSpring website really helped us to plan a great week. We hope to come back for our 5 year anniversary!"

  Chris & Jen M., Cape Canaveral, FL 6.18.13

 

"Michelle and Dean, we were thrilled to return yet once again (last here in 10/11) and find you still own the property. We are always afraid as "Innkeepers" you will burn out and sell. Annwyn is now our favorite cabin because of the space and fireplace, not to mention privacy! As we age (60s) we do fine we enjoy some interaction and a little conversation - more now than when we were younger. The price is less important now but the location, environment, and quality of furnishings is still extremely important. Do continue the extra touches - make-up cloths, candles, DVD layer, refrigerator - all nice amenities! And ohhhh...the red roses!!"

  Steve & Sherry s., Medford, OR 6.10.13

"I am so glad I found WildSpring on the Internet by accident. Almost a year has gone by since my discovery, and it became our "Romantic Getaway" for our 40th Anniversary this year! It was a total surprise to my hubby -- until we were south of Coos Bay, he had no clue of our destination. We enjoyed the hot tub times, the awesome breakfasts, the natural settings & hikes & sightseeing adventures. We enjoyed an awesome hour-long massage each - in our cabin. Aaaahhh? The accommodations are lovely, comfortable & peaceful! And Michelle & Dean are gracious hosts, making sure your stay is all you want it to be! All too soon it's time to go. But we will return! Thank you!"

"We feel so blessed to have found WildSpring. We had a wonderful night enjoying this oasis you have created here on the spectacular Oregon coast.

Wow! Thank you for a wonderful time,"

  Michelle & Sheldon T, Crescent City, CA 2.16.13

  Chuck & Julie K., 10.21.12

  Chris & Rachel B., Milford, MI

 

"It seems that many who wrote in this journal before me were staring their lives with their special person...let me say that this place is also wonderful with a spouse of many decades as well.

  Lisa & Dean, Denver, CO 10.6.12

 

"Driving down 101 from Portland was beautiful and come to the house after dark the lights were on and it was like we were coming home. Very welcoming. I loved the little touches and the candles. Very quiet and peaceful and comfortable, exactly what we were looking for, after(can't read) Portland."

We spent our first days of married life here - making plans for the future hwile living in the moment and experiencing the highest of gratitude. Thank you for creating this beautiful setting & allow for such memories to be made."

  Steve & Jannie, H., 9.5.12

 

"While we had less than 24 hours here, sometimes even a little taste of paradise is enough to take back out into the world as a more centered, calmer & more inspired person. The grounds are stunning and this cabin a warming retreat. Most of all, I loved the little bits of whimsy thoughtfully & playfully hidden throughout the grounds. Than you for a reminder that a little bit of fun can be around every corner. We'll be back! Hugs,"

"My wife and I sought a quiet, relaxing spot to spend our honeymoon. Our expectations were exceeded beyond our wildest dreams. At our cabin we were able to relax and forget all the excitement of the previous week. We enjoyed exploring the town, taking daytrips to California to see the = majestic redwoods, and other attractions closer to Prot Orford We enjoyed the sumptuous breakfast every morning, sipping OJ while we watched the sea. We especially enjoyed making hot chocolate to take to our cabin, and loved watching movies and listening to the excellent CD collection. We were privileged to share the space with the local deer! This trip has been one of the happiest in our lives, and we look forward to coming back many many times. Thanks for everything!"

  Cameron & Megan, 8.4.12

 

"Grandiose expectations mark a planned romantic getaway. When expiations are fulfilled the mind is overjoyed. Her heart jumped and her face smiled as we pulled in on Friday. "Cloudy" forecasts were wrong, it was sunny and temperate. The cabin had just enough (can't read) to complement the feel and mood On Saturday I proposed to my now fiancé Crystal in the labyrinth. It was a peaceful time punctuated by a moment of love. Dean and his wife made a great breakfast and accommodated my GF needs. The town was quaint and Cape Blanco was inspiring. When expectations are exceeded, the memories emblaze into the mind. Crystal & I felt the spirit watch us in the form of two hawks which flew close, A blessing. With love."

  Ryan & Crystal 7.29.12

 

"Thank you so much for the magical stay here at WildSpring. The forest, the view, the hot tub, and the breakfast were wonderful. I can't imagine a better place to spend our mini-honeymoon.

  Megan & Michael, 7.25.12

 

"What a magical spot! We spent two wonderful nights here with our teenage daughters and all four of us loved it! The games, the breakfast, the hot tub - were all spectacular.

"I was blessed to help deliver my best friend's baby in Feb of 2009. They gave me a certificate to stay here but due to my busy schedule and not having the right person to share this place with I haven't used it until now. This romantic setting was the perfect place to tell the one I love that we are having a baby. We land in this wonderfully cozy bed dreaming of our future together. I am hoping we can come back for a quick getaway before the baby arrives. We will definitely always remember the night we spent here."

"I will always remember this place! The woman I love and want to spend forever with shared with me that we are going to have a baby! I'm so happy and amazed and overjoyed! I couldn't imagine a more perfect setting in which to be told that my life is going to change in the best possible way. PS That shower is Amazing!"

  Jen & Michael, 4.22.12

"Wow! What a gem we have found! It was a surprise getaway planned for my 40th birthday & I had no idea (exactly) where we were going or what to expect. This place is magical and I love all the little surprises & details that have been thought out by the owners. I suspect each visit would be very different & I hope to come back to find out very soon. The fireplace was wonderful & the walk-in shower was divine. I have to say our evening "runs" to the hot tub under the stars was my favorite part. Soooo freezing when we got our before dressing but worth it (and lots of laughs & funny memories, i.e. pants on backwards & scaring each other in the dark). Yummy breakfasts followed by delightful walkabout (& loved the labyrinth!) WildSpring is truly a dream."

  M & E, Napa Valley, CA 1.16.12

 

"A massage, balmy, sunny day at Cape Blanco, hot tub under a full moon - does it get any better than this? What a quirky, cozy, romantic place this is - we leave Annwyn with many fond memories. Can't wait to tell our friends about it."

We loved being able to listen to the ocean as we relaxed in the hot tub and our morning walk was better than any cup of coffee... Annwyn, this little place, has been good to us. The warm fire has been fun, we have felt at home here. This has been a great experience, and a great way to start our lives together! Thank you for welcoming us! All the best"

  William & Katherine C., 11.15.11

 

"Thank you so much for the opportunity we enjoyed at this beautiful peaceful retreat! The views are breathtaking and the fresh air exhilarating!

We will definitely be back!"

"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.

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. What a beautiful lace you have, and a nice area. We've never been to the southern Oregon coast & it is truly gorgeous - rocky, rugged coastline with lots to explore! We'll be back."

The spiritual feel surrounds this oasis of incredible beauty and peace. And not to forget Michelle's cooking! Yum! Yum! And "adult friendly" get-away. The 24-7 kitchen access is a great idea. Thank you both for sharing your dreams with us."

Thank you for the generous & delicious breakfast, the relaxing spa and the tranquility. The trails at Port Orford Heads have the most stunning views, it's breathtaking to see the ocean through the trees. We enjoyed some wonderful meals at Redfish, Paula's Bistro and Crazy Norwegians. Cape Blanco lighthouse and the Hughes House were very interesting. Thank you so much for all the care you've taken here, your attention to detail in the amenities and surroundings are much appreciated.

So worth it! This place is so cozy & adorable. We each enjoyed a massage before popcorn and drinks on the way down to the beach. We can't wait for the hot tub & breakfast.

“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.”

  “Tama & Steve, Los Angeles, CA 5.14.06

  “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

  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."
