We recently stayed at WildSpring for five nights and cannot say enough good things about it. It is such a peaceful place. We chose this particular inn because of its unique layout and we chose Oregon to escape the Florida heat in the summertime. The cabins, spa, breakfast and grounds were all wonderful and the cool coastal air was a treat. Port Orford has the most beautiful scenery along the Oregon coast, but we were actually surprised how much we enjoyed the restaurants and hiking trails in this little town. WildSpring is simply an outstanding place to visit!

A lovely 2 night stay. Think a longer visit would be nice to have time to accommodate to the serenity and the peaceful surroundings. Great place to de-stress!

WildSpring is a very beautiful property in a fairyland-type woods full of trees, moss and ferns. It is extremely well kept, with not even a piece of mulch from the pathways out of place. The cabins are very nice and charming. The main lodge is a great hang out place full of board games and music, and with a lovely view of the ocean. We loved that there were several choices of Mighty Leaf hot tea available there at all times. The breakfast was very good, and I was happy that there were some low carb/high protein choices available (hard boiled eggs, cottage cheese, cheese - but no meat, which was fine.) The rest of my family loved the home baked muffins and french toast casserole. The only small negative things I can say is that our cabin was darker than I prefer. There was one very bright lamp which was good for reading, but no ceiling light, just dim lamps. Also, the flashlight that is attached to the room key is about worthless it's so dim. And, there was almost no place to eat dinner in Port Orford the night we were there, and we were unprepared for that. The first place on our list was out of business, the second place was closed on Sundays, which was the day we were there, and the third place closed at 7:00 p.m. and it was a little after 7:00 when we got there. We ended up going to the grocery store for dinner.
Hi, we're glad you enjoyed WildSpring but so sorry you found the cabin too dim. Did you try the chandelier? It's on a dimmer switch so it can go from quite bright to very romantic. If you had let us know on the intercom, we would have been happy to bring additional lights down for your comfort. And thanks for letting us know about the flashlight. We will check all of them out to make sure they're working properly. They are high end, compact halogen flashlights and should have provided plenty of illumination. And as far as a Sunday restaurant, did you try Redfish? It overlooks Port Orford bay and is amazing. Patrick Zulick is the chef, who used to chef for Thomas Keller at Bouchon in Las Vegas and their food looks like it came from Top Chef. They're open until 9. We know that as a very small town of 1200 people, Port Orford, while beautiful, has its service limits, especially in the winter, which is why we send a link describing all the restaurants here and in Bandon and Gold Beach (half an hour away), their offerings and days/hours of operation in the email confirming your reservation. We hope you'll return and enjoy your stay even more next time.

Our expectations were very high and they were met. Hot dishes at breakfast were excellent.

While this is a lovely facility, it was a bit too quiet and isolated for what we had in mind. This is very much a "retreat" type accommodation with no television, no outside stimulation, not really conducive to sitting and reading. If that is what you are looking for, then this is the ideal place. Unfortunately the weather did not permit sitting out on the deck, which would have be WONDERFUL. Breakfast was outstanding. My feedback should not be viewed as a criticism at all - just a different experience that what we ideally would have wanted.
We are very sorry your stay here did not meet your expectations. We understand we're a different kind of guest experience from the norma B&Bl: Our luxurious cabin suites, built like small homes, are set in a naturally beautiful, parklike five acres...part second growth forest, part ocean-view vistas. Here, guests find peace and quiet, and room enough for solitude if that is their preference. Since none of us has enough time and money for vacations, we go to great lengths to make sure our website is accurate and very clear on what it feels like to stay here. Our reviews are also very consistent on these issues. As far as television, we say in a number of places in our site that our LCD TV/DVD combinations are for playback only and we have a great library of over 500 DVDs in our Guest Hall for free incabin movies. I remember discussing all these issues with you over the phone and am surprised you find these a negative after the fact. As for service, we're at a bit of a loss why you rated us so low. When you arrived, you said you didn't need assistance with your luggage...though Dean went down to the cabin area anyway to see if he could help. We responded to your phone calls immediately, and made dinner reservations for you. We're also sorry the weather was disappointing...we sent the memo.

I was looking for a quiet, romantic place to celebrate my 30th wedding anniversary. WildSpring was that and much more. The rooms were great, service was thoughtful and attentiv, the meals were wonderful and the setting was extraordinary! Enjoying the ocean view under a moonlit sky in the outdoor hot tub was an experience that my wife and I will never forget.

My wife and I checked in late (around 8PM) and it was already pitch black outside. The emailed directions were very clear on what to do and everything went off without a hitch. After getting settled, we decided to check out the grounds (with the included flashlight) and found the main cabin and hot tub. Even though it was late, we decided to spend a few minutes in the hot tub, and oh boy, what a view of the stars and sky on a clear night! Breathtaking doesn't quite cut it. We stayed in cabin one and it was cozy, welcoming small cottage in the great outdoors. The B&B property is very natural and has guest trails running through it (so you don't get lost). The next morning we had a buffet style breakfast at the main cabin and had to leave. All in all a very nice and relaxing nights stay. We would definitely stay there again!

We really enjoyed the serene environment and all the small but meaningful touches to the environment (indoor and outdoor) at Wild Spring. Wild Spring is a place that reminds you of what is important and encourages an appreciation for the beautiful and sublime. Thank you.

We had an excellent stay. Dean & Michelle definately had great visions when they initiated this very cool B&B.

My wife and I spent two weeks traveling through Oregon on our Honeymoon and booked two nights at the WildSpring Guest Habitat. Not only was this our favorite location to stay on our trip, I would also rank it as my top hotel/B&B of all time. I do not say that lightly as I travel for work and have stayed at many places over the years and yet this still was my favorite place of all time. The property that WildSpring is located on is absolutely beautiful. Not only is the natural beauty of the property on display, the grounds are also maintained down to a level of detail rarely seen at any B&B or hotel. My wife and I spent a lot of time just exploring the grounds as there is so much to see. The breakfast served was outstanding. There was plenty to choose from and the owners were very accomidating for any diatery restrictions guest might have. We also enjoyed the fact that the full kitchen in the common room was available for us to use for lunch/dinner preparation which we took full advantage of. The cabin we stayed was nothing shy of perfect. We enjoyed having a separate living room with a table, couch and small fireplace to relax in. The spacious bathroom and huge shower made getting ready easy. We also enjoyed the fact that their is a DVD library of over 400 movies to use at no cost to view in your room. The one note I would make to anyone about staying there is that if you are one of those people that needs a valet to park your car, a bellman to take your bags to your room and you must have a 4-star restaurant within walking distance then WildSpring is not for you. Otherwise all I can say is book now as you will not regret it!

The cabin was adorable, cozy and very clean. We wished for a bigger bed. The breakfast was very good, especially the muffins.

So peaceful and quiet, felt safe. Great breakfast! Only thing I would change....it was great to have a fridge in the cabin....but the noise from it in your bedroom took awhile to get used to.

We were impressed, with the service. You thought of every small detail. Thank you for the valuable information you provided us. The suggestions for dining were fabulous, as good as you breakfasts.

We stayed one night on a trip up the Oregon coast. WildSpring is enchanting - great location, fantastic cottages, very nice hosts. Not to be missed!

My husband and I stayed at WildSpring the first weekend of October 2010. We both have traveled quite a bit including international travel. For us, this was the most wonderful trip ever. The natural beauty of the forest surrounding the cabins is truly awe inspiring; and then there is the view of the ocean from the Guest Hall, also stunning. There are many books and movies (DVD) available to choose from in and take to your cabin to just chill out. The beach at the base of the hill is unspoiled with very few people and makes for an exhilarating walk. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Wildspring's pricing is very fair for the value recieved. This is a place where you can totally get away from your daily life and fully relax. This is the place where we wanted to call our financial planner, tell him to sell everything, and just send us the money, so we could stay forever!

I brought my husband to WildSprings for a birthday celebration. The rooms are delightful with cozy furnishings and nice decorative touches. I absolutely loved the oversized shower and how the rooms were all in their separate cabins. Made for a very intimate evening. I only wish there were fireplaces in the cabins, as those always add great warmth and ambience, especially when visiting during cooler weather. We made it up to the hot springs tub in the evening and with a sky full or more stars then I have ever seen, it was an amazing spectacle as we enjoyed the soothing warmth of the tub. Breakfast was also a treat, the owners account for dietary restrictions and made delicious homemade quiche and fruit tarts. I had seconds on both. The view from breakfast overlooking the ocean is stunning, I wished we could have sat there all day. The price point for me was on the higher side but for a celebration I decided to splurge and was happy that our experience was so wonderful.
Thanks so much for the lovely comments about WildSpring. We try very hard to create a special place where people can escape the real world and feel indulged. Since you love a fireplace so much, I'd suggest choosing Annwyn, cabin 3, if you return. It has a lovely old Vermont Castings woodburning stove in it - the scrolly kind that opens up so you can enjoy a live fire, crackling and all. Take care and thanks again.
