WildSpring Guest Habitat – Gay Friendly Port Orford Resort

WildSpring Guest Habitat - Gay Friendly Port Orford Resort

WildSpring Guest Habitat is a small, ecofriendly resort in Port Orford, overlooking Oregon’s spectacular southern coast. On five acres of old Native American grounds set in a peaceful, secluded forest of 100-ft trees, WildSpring offers luxury accommodations in a quiet and serene, naturally beautiful environment.

With only five cabin suites built like small stylish homes with radiant-heated floors and vaulted ceilings, and filled with art and antiques, WildSpring will make you feel you’re visiting a private estate rather than a hotel.

Cars are not allowed in the cabin area, so the loudest thing you will hear all night is maybe an owl. Sleep to the sound of wind through the trees, and wake up to deer outside your window.

Relax in the Guest Hall overlooking the ocean where you can help yourself to beverages, fruit, popcorn and chocolates(!) at any time. Play a game, fiddle with a jigsaw puzzle or just gaze at the ocean on its expansive deck. And don’t miss the breakfast buffet each morning with specially made hot entrees that change each day.

Oregon Coast Road Trip – 2TravelDads

Oregon Coast road trip - 2TravelDads

With so many ways to do a road trip you can take almost any approach. We just did it with two kids so we are ready to share exactly how to get the most from the Oregon Coast. Doing an Oregon Coast road trip is really fun and very easy. There are zero chances to get lost and 1000 opportunities to fall in love with the nature and nautical sights along the way.

Have you done the Oregon Coast with kids? Want to see what we did to keep them entertained as well as give us parents things to look forward to with each stop? Here’s how you do an Oregon Coast road trip with kids that’s good for the whole family no matter the season.

The Oregon Coast is gorgeous… even in the foggy rain which you might experience any time of year. When you’re packing for an Oregon Coast road trip be sure to plan for hot sun as well as chilling wet. As a rule when we’re touring around Western Washington or Oregon we always pack equally for rain or sun, erring on the side of the time of year. This includes activities we bring with us.

Like with any itinerary, take this one with a grain of salt and update it for your own family. We like to visit beaches, breweries and lighthouses, so this Oregon Coast road trip itinerary has a healthy mixture of nature and culture. And like any jaunt through small town America, you’ll be tempted to stop in places we don’t mention and to find your own foodie spots. Go for it! Road tripping is all about fun and new experiences and the Oregon Coast is no exception!

Lesbian Travel: Mendocino on My Mind

Lula Cellars Go north, across the Golden Gate Bridge, past the sleepy coastal pastures, and over the winding roads that lead to the magical town of Mendocino. There, tucked between the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean and the silent giant redwood forest, you’ll find a small slice of heaven. Mendocino is a rugged place where time stands still and devices like cell phones and Internet access are rarely used. This is great news for those who want to disconnect from civilization and reconnect with nature. Unlike many remote towns that are perched on the jagged cliffs of Northern California, Mendocino has plenty of options when it comes to dining, sleeping, and adventuring. On Your Way There Mendocino has an impressive wine region and 25% of its vineyards are Certified Organic. Mendocino wine country leads the country in “green wine” production, which mean less toxins in your glass of vino. The region is best known for its full-bodied Pinot Noirs and light sparkling wines. On highway 128, numerous wineries line the valley. There are big names like Roederer and Scharffenberger, but the real gems are tucked away on gravel roads, behind big oak trees. Lula Cellars in one of those special places. Chances are you’ll get to meet the award-winning wine maker when you visit the property. Jeff Hansen, winemaker for Lula Cellars, brings nearly 30 years of grape growing and winemaking experience to the brand.
