I love these charming little cabins built in 1936, because they remind me of what the entire Oregon coast used to be like before modern motels, hotels, and luxury resorts sprang up. The cabins couldn’t be simpler or cuter, with a double bed in an alcove, a couple of easy chairs, a wood-burning fireplace, and a small bathroom with a shower. n the day, stars like Clark Gable would come up here to fish and chill. The rustic cabins are now part of a larger, 19-acre oceanfront property that includes the adjacent Gold Beach nn, with two newer buildings. The cabins with their knotty pine walls have all the charm; the rooms in the other buildings have the views—and great views at that. Those rooms have walls and ceilings of Douglas fir, gas fireplaces, and nondescript but comfy easy chairs. There are also separate houses that are perfect for family reunions or large groups. The grounds here are full of old trees, grassy lawns, and trails down to the beach. There is also a wonderful patio area with three hot tubs (no kids after 10pm) and a solarium. For the price and the view—and the inimitable historic cachet of the little cabins—Ireland’s can’t be beat.
