WildSpring Guest Habitat
Table Of Contents
The great outdoors finally comes with an equally great indoors.
WildSpring Guest Habitat is a small eco-friendly resort overlooking Oregon's south coast in Port Orford, 60 miles north of California. Here, you can enjoy spectacular natural beauty while surrounded by comfortable luxury. Like something you'd find in Big Sur, it feels more like a private estate than a hotel.
Recommended twice in the New York Times and USAToday, in the
Wall Street Journal, and seven times in Sunset Magazine!
WildSpring is a comfortable half-mile walk (from the entrance only...the ocean-view side is up on a bluff) from the beach, restaurants and art galleries. Port Orford is a small, friendly seaside town that feels a lot like Big Sur 20 years ago. It has seven art galleries owned and operated by working artists and a range of recreational activities in the area, such as world-class golf (Bandon Dunes), jet boats, beach horseback rides, fishing, wind surfing, and miles of beautiful beaches where you can hunt for agates and driftwood.
Plus spectacular hikes - from easy to advanced. Enjoy the south coast's wild, natural beauty without having to fight your way through a crush of traffic and tourists. And be sure to visit Cape Blanco, the most westerly point in the 48 states and feel the raw power of our famous winds.
WildSpring has great reviews in travel guides, newspapers and national magazines, a birding site on the Oregon Coast Birding Trail and certified wild animal habitat by The Wildlife Federation. Best Places of the Northwest gave it their highest rating and Editor's Choice, and it's been recommended twice in the New York Times and USA Today, in the Wall Street Journal, and five times in Sunset Magazine.
Think of it as nature with four stars.
On five acres of secluded Native American grounds, WildSpring features five luxury cabin suites filled with art and antiques, set within a quiet and secluded residential forest of 100-ft trees. Built like small homes, they have radiant-heated wood floors, vaulted ceilings, and are so quiet, the only thing you're likely to hear at night is an owl, or deer munching outside your window in the morning. The bathrooms are works of art, with oversized walk-in slate showers, walnut parsons tables, vessel sinks, brushed nickel fixtures, extra-plush towels and probably the most satisfying showerhead you've ever experienced. Fully equipped with spa robes, Toshiba LCD TV/DVD, Sony CD/iPod stereo, even candles, wine glasses, personal reading lights and your own refrigerator.
WildSpring has a beautiful open-air slate spa overlooking the ocean, where it's a treat to immerse yourself in steamy water and watch the boats in the day or the stars at night. It also has a very comfortable Guest Hall with floor-to-ceiling windows where guests can relax, hang out, enjoy the ocean in any kind of weather and whale-watch all year round. The fresh & healthy breakfast buffet is served here each morning. Help yourself to beverages, fruit, popcorn and chocolate(!) at any time. And enjoy the lounging deck, port lookout (where you can see our dolly dock in action) and sculpture garden - all overlooking the ocean. Walking labyrinth, private alcoves and hammocks. In-cabin massages are available. Plus activities on request, such as morning Tai Chi, drumming/Native American flute circles (from Oct through May), guided meditation sessions.
We accept children 13 years or older (we make exceptions for very mature children a few years younger), and have a wheelchair-friendly cabin as well. We are also perfect for small groups such as weddings, family reunions and retreats.
WildSpring is a lovely, naturally beautiful place for small weddings. The perfect, peaceful setting for families and friends to spend time with each other and celebrate this special event.
Imagine an open-air ceremony overlooking the ocean on the Guest Hall deck, or in Mary's Grove next to the walking labyrinth surrounded by 100-ft trees. Or in the Guest Hall at night, draped with twinkling lights.
We can set up the Guest Hall for the reception (and even move the ceremony inside in case of inclement weather), where the floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outside in. Or design a candlelit party on the deck with a brilliant canopy of stars.
And, we can arrange for everything you need, including catering, flowers, decorations, wedding cake and officiants.
One thing to keep in mind when considering WildSpring: We will work with you to make sure it lives up to your hopes. However, it would be challenging to plan a formal wedding here and much of the traditional components would have to be brought in from a distance. It would be a lovely place if you prefer a more natural setting with more simple decorations and catering for a buffet, and especially if you are looking for an eco-friendly wedding.
"When I need to go to my most favorite & peaceful place in my mind, I will return here."

“Adam must have found Eve in this very place.”
Beth & Wolans, 8.19.06
“This place is amazing. The attention to detail, the comfort, the beauty, the friendly people. The cabin was perfect, exactly what we needed and nothing we could have imagined. Magical. Absolutely magical. I know I'm gushing, but there aren't any better words. Other people speak of the relaxation of the place, but I came away charged, creatively and physically.
"On this honeymoon up the coast, we've stayed in many places, but this is the first that made us feel so very welcome. Like we belong here. Like we have to come back.
"If you are here, in this cabin, in this moment, you already know how unique this small shelter of wood and sky is. What you really need is advice: whether you are here for many days or just a few, make the time to spend lying in one of the hammocks or watching the ocean's colors change in the light of the fading day. Light the candles, open the cabin and listen to the pulse of the ocean meet the breath of the wind through the trees.
"I would tell you that the moments you spend here are sacred in a way that no other place in your journey will be, but if you are here, you should already know.”
Jasper & Beth, 6.21.05
