On the Waterfront: Iron Springs Resort
Thoughts of the beach bring to mind southing sounds of ocean waves, smell of salt water in the air, and surroundings of peaceful natural beauty. Nowhere is a beach retreat brought more to reality than rustically luxurious Iron Springs Resort.
Situated on stunning beachfront cliffs along the Pacific Northwest Coast in Copalis Beach, Iron Springs Resort is comprises of 24 unique and private cabins, each designed to offer unparalleled ocean views and beach access. The resort is carefully positioned on more than 100 acres of coastal woodland, where trees and shrubbery provide natural boundaries between cabins, making each feel like your own private beach house.
Iron Springs Resort retains the original charm as when it was opened in 1947 as a small eight-cabin, one-lodge vacation property at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Renovated in 2010, Iron Springs was careful to keep the original floor plans and historical character of the property while providing the modern comforts of home. Snippets of the past echo throughout the resort. An upside-down boat welcomes guests in from the highway when they arrive, salvaged wooden siding from the original cabins was used to create one-of-a-kind side tables and wall accents in the newly constructed lodgings, fallen Spruce trees became striking, knotted benches that line the cabin entryways, and the signature plush chairs, distinctive to each cabin, were upholstered from vintage Pendleton and East Hudson Bay blankets.
Iron Springs offers memorable stays for couple and family (including your four-legged friends). Sip a glass of wine and watch storms roll in from the warmth of your cabin or follow the trails to the shore for beach combing and some of the best razor clam digging around.
