About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, Loft, (sleeps four), 1 Bathroom

Cabin is ideal for couples, anniversaries, and honeymooners. Located within Whaleshead Beach Resort and Spa. There is a hot tub on the wrap around deck to enjoy the beautiful ocean and forest views as well as ooohhh those starry nights . The cabin sits up high in a small valley overlooking the ocean with the fog drifting in and out carrying with it that moist clean smell of the ocean and the forest. Watching the storms come in is one of our favorite things to do. The ever changing view sometimes feels like your in a treehouse. The Samuel Boardman State Park trails are breathtaking and you can catch the trail about five minutes away near the entrance to Whaleshead Beach. The Jedediah Smith Redwoods are 30 mins South. One hour South is the not to be missed

Prairie Creek State Park and Fern Canyon (where parts of Jurassic Park was filmed) with Elk viewing. Horseback riding on the beach is only 20 minutes North. Many eateries with tasty treats and entertainment in Brookings, six miles South. Be sure to book an appointment in the Spa after a day of adventure (541-671-8751). Usually after a day or two of adventure, we and our guests simply fire up the BBQ and set back in the deck rocker or hot-tub to enjoy watching the many varieties of birds: wild turkeys, stellar jays, and quail, hummingbirds and occasional osprey to name a few. During the months of the whale migration (December-January) you might get lucky enough to spot a whale or two. But many guests have seen whales year round. We have binoculars available for your search.

There are queen beds in both the master bedroom and the loft. It is one small step up into cabin but a very steep stairwell to the loft. Ceiling is low in the loft and unless your miniature, you can't stand up. Not recommended for children because the loft has an open area small children could fall through.

We are located six miles North of Brookings, Oregon and just ten miles from the Northern Califonia Border.

We have a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, pots, pans. Coffee and a small amount of spices. We enjoy the ocean view while we're cooking.

There is a coin operated laundromat on the resort property, but not in the cabin.

The Living Room has a queen size sleeper sofa, a recliner and big overstuffed chair. Perfect for lying around and doing NOTHING! . There is a 42" TV with DVD/VHS Player, free WiFi. Another TV is located in the master bedroom. There is a small library of DVD's and VHS movies and books available. Many board games, cards, and puzzles. Unfortunately our small propane fireplace is out of service to be replaced soon.

Why Linda & Jim Sanford chose Brookings

We accidently found Whaleshead Resort when we were beachcombing at Whaleshead Beach across the street. We saw some construction going on and decided to drive over and ask some questions. We fell in love with the place and started the rocky road of building our piece of paradise.

What makes this cabin unique

Oh the view is beautiful and ever changing. Whaleshead Beach and the many trails will take your breath away. A spa just opened at the resort in Oct of 2016. Appt. can be made by phone at 541-671-8751. I (Linda) and my niece just had a massage and facial there in October. We both enjoyed not only the fantastic massage/facial, but the ambiance was lovely as well.

Part of a Cluster, But Very Private

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was in a resort with lots of others, but its location near the top of the hill made it feel like you were in a more isolated spot. We liked it as a place to relax, and as a base to do some exploring around Brookings and further north on the coast.

The view of the hills and the ocean every morning was beautiful and changeable. The cottage itself was tastefully and minimally furnished, which meant it was comfortable, and home-like, but you also had room to put your own guidebooks and maps on the coffee table. We cooked in the well-supplied kitchen every night, because it was so quiet and peaceful just to stay there. Everything was super clean, the beds were luxurious, and the hot tub great to get into in the cool Oregon coast evenings.

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan for taking the time to give us such a lovely review. It is always a joy for us to hear people's experiences at the cabin. We live a good distance away (400 miles) so it is a bit of a challenge keeping the place comfortable and well maintained. Hopefully, you made it down to the beach and were able to hike one of the Samuel Boardman Park trails....another world there as well. And, of course, the Redwoods ......they are to be experienced as words can never convey their beauty. I myself am pining to just be there for awhile. Happy Trails & Thank you again...., Linda

Great views, peace and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

Came over for a rainy weekend after a long week of work. It was the get away we needed to relax and enjoy the coast. Although the unit is in a resort it does feel private and the hot tub with ocean views is a great touch.

Charming place to stay

My husband and I enjoyed our days there and will definitely return. I loved sitting in the hot tub watching the sun rise in the mornings while the fog drifted in and out of whaleshead beach.

Relaxation at its finest!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a getaway with Pacific Ocean views, nestled in large beautiful trees, humming birds enjoying the flowers just feet from your deck, deer frolicking, steam coming from a hot tub as the morning mist rolls over you before giving away to the sun, then this cabin is for you. My wife and I enjoyed this little slice of perfection for 3 nights on a getaway from our everyday (getting away from our kids and dogs as well!!). Already in love with the southern Oregon coastal area, this cabin made us feel as if we were completely alone in a far off land leaving all the ills of the world bottled away and those ills could not reach us. It is a perfect cabin for a couple and our ONLY complaint is that we had to leave it. The owners were very communicative and welcoming. We felt a true sense that they enjoy sharing this awesome property. The cabin is located in the Whaleshead Beach Resort and honestly is the best located cabin in the entire resort for views and privacy. Remote enough to get away yet located well for anything you want to do from Crescent City, CA to Reedsport, OR.

It was a well needed rest as a couple! We were looking for beach views, jacuzzi and private with the kitchen and this hit the spot! Owners were super available and welcoming! Great place for romantic weekend or just some plain RnR! Breath taking views! Will recommend and hopefully return!
