"I really hate to write this because more people are going to know how great the Ocean Mist is. My wife and I stayed there for 10 days and had a very relaxing time. The cabin was just the right size for us. Every night we cracked the window just a little to hear the waves crashing just 30 yards away. My wife and I love to cook and we found everything you would need to prepare a fantastic meal. The owner Katie is just a phone call away and always pleasant, Even when I lost the house key after a day of antique shopping. I called her and she called Dawn, the lady who cleans the cabin and she drove down and let us in. (by the way the cabin was spotless when we arrived). Our daily routine was wake up whenever, coffee on the deck, cook breakfast then off to go antique shopping and exploring. Lunch wherever we felt like (Super Fly's the best), then back to the cabin for a nap or booking reading with a nice glass of wine. Nothing like reading a book on a private deck with the ocean crashing so close by. I usually made dinner so my wife could relax in the hot tub. I laughed at her because if she had relaxed any more she would have slipped into a coma. Couple of tips
Watch out for Elk they are everywhere including the middle of the road
The Bard surf perch love squid. I took my 7 foot striper pole and caught 4 or them in less than an hour 100 yards from the cabin. Relax Katie, I let them go. :) No fish cleaning on the deck
Super Fly's in Brookings is a fun place to eat, great food and drinks, and very reasonable.
In the Brookings harbour at dock N you will find Bounders Crab shack. We bought 4 live crabs and they cooked and clean them. The pot is a beer keg with the top cut off. We had a great meal of cracked crab, french bread and wine for dinner.
Antique shops are everywhere and for the most part very reasonable. My wife almost had to ride on top of the car so we could get all our treasure's home.
Bring rain gear and house shoes. There is a hose by the front door to wash off sand from your shoes
Bring hiking boots because it rains a lot and there are a ton of hiking trails.
Don't speed in Oregon, there are cops every where. The speed limit changes 4 times just going through Brookings.
If you want a very relaxing vacation where it doesn't matter is you go out or not the Ocean Mist is it. Very quiet, very clean, and well maintained. The view is to die for. Remember to bring Binoculars!!!! Thanks Katie, we will be back."
