Wanna get away for a day or two and just relax? Well, the Iron Springs Resort might be your kind of place.
There are twenty-eight cabins to choose from and many of them have ocean views. The resort looks like it was built in the forties and expanded in the sixties and I'm sure not alot has changed. Their website shows a picture of the heated, indoor pool but I suspect most of the folks who visit Iron Springs don't go for the pool.
No. There is not a lot to do. No phones. No cell phone service (at least not for me). No cable TV. Some of the cabins have a TV set with a VCR. You can borrow movies from the resort (they have quite a bit) if that suits you.
All of the cabins are heated but also have wood stoves or fireplaces. A bundle of wood is provided (a couple of hours worth) and more is available to purchase at the office. Most of the cabins have small kitchens.
There is a lot of quiet at the Iron Springs Resort except the sound of the ocean and the wind. Pets are allowed. There is beach access and really that's all you need, right? Remember sunsets at the beach?
Marcie and I went to the Iron Springs Resort for a night, last weekend. The pictures are from cabin 17 which sits on top of a cliff with a couple of other cabins.
I'm not exactly sure how each cabin is priced but we were offered a one bedroom for $120/night or a two bedroom for $130/night. By the way, checkout is at noon but you can check-in as soon as the room is available, which, during this time of year, might be first thing in the morning. Cabin 17 is a two bedroom. I didn't get a picture of the bedrooms or the kitchen. Honestly, don't expect a lot in the design and modernity category and you'll be pleasantly surprised. Most kitchens have a coffee maker and a toaster but bring your own dishes, pans and utensils.
As an aside, cabin 10A is also pretty cool. It is a duplex cabin, which is a little less private, but the view is really nice. During WWII, there was a coastal lookout station on the site where 10A sits.
So if you wanna get away for a day or two and just relax, do like we did. Get a bottle of wine, some simple meals to cook, a deck of cards and maybe something to play music on and chill out in a very laid back and secluded part of Washington's coast.
On a scale of 1 to 5 stars for secret getaway spots in Washington, I give it a 3.5.
