Empress paddle-wheel boat in Clarkston Wash - Lewiston Idaho for 10-day journey in the Snake, Columbia following Lewis/Clark (can't read word) of discovery, ending in Portland. Magnificent! Today we continue by car, toward Calif, visiting wineries sites, ending in San Francisco on Aug. 21st. To be able to rest and relax in WildSpring is a blessing and much needed after driving so far.

Alisha & Joel, 9.7.08

“We feel so blessed to be here at WildSpring. You have created a magnificent healing space. You have taken this sacred land and with your loving intention, have made it even more divine. The cabins offer solitude as well as a sense of community. The paths, the labyrinth, the deer, the meditation places along the way each called to us to stop and be present. You invisibly and so seamlessly hold the space for your guests to do what we need and ask for what we want. What a great spiritual practice. The gift of love you have put into this dream can only grow more and more. Much love and many blessings.”

“Thank you, Dean & Michelle, for sharing your special sacred place with so many of us who will be lucky enough to pass through. All your attention to the details of caring and beauty and comfort in the midst of southern Oregon coast wildness & wind. I was surprised and delighted by the whimsical Indonesian wood figures, the empty white marble figure to fill with spirit, the labyrinth with small clovers popping up as you walk, the wind in high trees, silence so you can remember your heart, the surprise of a bench at a turn – the deck looking to the sea, remembering, remembering the Earth is smiling here and we are, too. I wish you many more years to touch many more lives. (I loved reading through the guest book – a delight. I thank my long-time friend, Olga, for finding this spot to share.”
Leslie S., Glenview, IL 8.5.07
“Ah yes, to return to paradise. Sharing WildSpring w/a long-time friend, breathing in fresh air, eating good food, looking out to the ocean, taking a nap in the hammock seeing deer, listening to the breeze, long deep look at the Douglas Firs, dancing to Mickey Hart’s Planet Drum (your CD), relaxing in the hot tub, introducing myself to your tiny book – Silent Power by Stuart Wilde – I’m going to buy it when I get home, and all the other healing, great feelings I allowed myself to feel, to relish, to heal in. All due to Dean & Michelle – not a better tribute could be made to you two Dreamers who bring your dreams to reality. All blessings to each of you.”
“What a beautiful beautiful place! Wasn’t quite sure what to expect when we got here, but every discovery was wonderful. We loved our cottage in the middle of trees – so peaceful, restful & quiet.

Steve & Laura D., 12.13.06
“'The happiest men are those who learn the lesson of worship from nature.' Emerson. That has been realized in our time here at WildSpring in our cottage Earthsea. The towering trees all around us, the rich earthy ground beneath our feet & the glorious ocean views from the top of the hill make Frederich & me realize how wonderful nature is & how precious it is! Yet our place is obvious in our tiny (but wonderful) cottage, that we as humans pale beside the power of nature & her beauty. We have enjoyed our time here, to marvel at the wonder! of it all & the wonder of it all! Ko yum bala”
Jacquelyn & Frederich, Sonoma, CA, 11.22.06
“This is a natural paradise enhanced by your sacred intention to nurture. We enjoyed the trees, the cozy cottage, the soulful hot tub, the deer, the massages, the sumptuous breakfasts, the ocean, Scarlett, the greeter cat, the music, the candles, the quiet, the movies, and each other on our 37th anniversary. This is a beautiful spot for a retreat. We will recommend it. Thank you so much.”

Fred & Barbara, Beverly, MA 9.23.06
“As Rogue Valley residents, as children next door, we became partners for life in a 1969 wedding ceremony. Since then our lives have taken us far and wide – we travel a lot! Bed & Breakfast lodging has been a most enjoyable experience. This time among the green giants has been a wonderful experience. Sunshine and divine temperatures added to our “rare find.” Select Registry brought us here – wonderful attention to detail will make it our return visit of choice. We so enjoyed the Guest Hall with afternoon coffee and a game of Boggle. Spa each night for sunset and stars. Deer friends visited nightly and we enjoyed our strolls of the grounds. We will plan to BBQ fresh fish next visit. Crazy Norwegians Fish & Chips are a must and great local atmosphere. Take the trip to Cape Blanco and see the lighthouse and the Hughes House. Wonderful. Thanks for Great Experiences!"
Steve & Sherry S., Rogue Valley, OR 8.31.06
“We came to celebrate our 25 years of marriage, with nature and the conveniences deserving of a mid-life couple. Our adventure lived up to every expectation. It was wonderful to be embraced by the wind as it wrestled through the trees. The view to the sea awe inspiring and gazing at vastness of stars reminding us of our connectedness to each other and all other things. We have renewed our vows to each other and as stewards of our planet. The only drawback was missing our boy, our dog Favo, but anticipating the excitement of getting back to him. Enjoy your stay!”

You have utilized and maximized nature’s tranquility in these wonderfully charming cabins, in the space around each place, and in your welcome.

Thanksgiving radiates from every pore – for each other, for our children, for our community, for our shared passions, wonders & successes. Oh yes, and challenges and griefs…. Together in breath and flesh in ocean pulse and deep forest green – sunlight casting magical glow on a wet fern. In joy, silence, stillness and Music.

“’In the beginning God created the heavens & earth.’ (Gen 1:1) ‘God said, let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind…and God saw that it was good.’ (Gen 1:11-12) ‘The earth is the Lord’s and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.

“Many thanks from the workaholic, Type A S. family, who traveled from the East coast hoping to find a place with quiet rooms, good-smelling towels, music, mountains and trails to hike, tide pools to explore, and games to play together – a place that understands the importance of a healthful breakfast on a deck overlooking the ocean. WildSpring has it all! Plus, we’re crazy about the resident cat, who kept us company each morning in the sculpture garden. Good times. We laughed a lot. We’ll be sure to spread the good work about WildSpring and – we’ll be back!”
Keith, Melissa, Austin & Drew S., 8.23.05

May we always be that which we seek. May we always extend from the sacred center golden here… Aloha.”

“When I was looking for the perfect place to celebrate Chris’ 40th birthday, I imagined beauty, peace, sanctuary and celebration. The minute I found WildSpring I felt excited for the chance to check it out…The reality of this magical and special weekend surpassed my hopes and we’ll be back. Thank you and namaste.”

“Thank you for a sublime and truly wonderful experience. Walking in the woods, playing chess looking at the sea, soaking in the Buddha pool. Who could ask for anything more. This has been a rejuvenating time we will never forget. And to make sure of that, we will come back@ ‘Nothing but stillness can remain when hearts are full of their own sweetness, bodies of their loveliness.’ William Butler Yeats"

“This seems to me to be a truly magical place. You have blended a spectacular natural site with smart architecture and tasteful interiors to make a spiritual retreat that was instantly comfortable for my partner and me. We have done our best to be present in every moment – watching deer from the front porch, sitting in the spa, and enjoying long showers. Thank you so much!”

“What a wonderful retreat. My husband and I enjoyed the peace and quiet and the beautiful surroundings very much. I will be sure to spread the word about WildSpring.”

“Wonderful, blissful, delightful. Thanks for creating this magical place.”
“What a peaceful relaxing place to escape the rush of life. Make the most of your time there by doing nothing or relaxing in the spa. This was the perfect place for us to reconnect again as people, not just be mommy & daddy to a 2-year old. We enjoyed the coastline very much, especially at night, and dinner at the Breadworks was amazing. We hope to visit again soon. Even though it rained most of the our stay we do enjoyed staying in the cozy cabin & listening to the raindrops on the roof. Thank you”

“A wonderful escape from the pace and burden of the day. We came to relax, golf and become young lovers again. All dreams achieved. As I write this entry and gaze at a sunlit grove of tall, swaying trees, I hope we can return soon.”
