To call them “cabins” is something of a misnomer—at least if you associate “cabin” with a little rustic cottage from an earlier era. These two-story cedar-shake and glass-fronted cabins are gorgeously sited and outfitted to enhance a quiet but luxurious beach stay. You’re not on the ocean, but close to it, and the wooded setting gives you a real hit of the Oregon coast. What I love about this place is that the cabins are so simple and well designed, inside and out. Comfortably luxurious, they are set up for couples and individuals looking for a romantic and revivifying retreat. The decor includes original art, wool area rugs woven in Tibet, clean-lined and unobtrusive Scandinavian-style fixtures and furniture, and private outdoor hot tubs. Like all good things, these cabins have been “discovered” and are hard to book in July and August, so plan ahead, or enjoy them off-season. The newest and most spectacular offering is a luxurious house perched high above Manzanita Beach with ocean views in all directions.
