a night at the coast


We don't get over to the Oregon Coast as much as we'd like to because you know, life is busy. Fortunately for us we were all home this weekend + got the opportunity to head over to Pacific City to check out the absolutely gorgeous Headlands Coastal Lodge & Spa.


We arrived at the hotel, checked in + went up to our room to get settled before heading over to Pelican Brewing. The room was a dream. Ariel + I both are pretty obsesed with modern decor and our room was filled with it. Our favorite part of the room was the view - the bathtub was a close second.


After a drink at Pelican + dinner at the Meridian - which was so delicious - we headed down to the beach for a bonfire + s'mores. I love a good bon fire + I love it even more when I don't have to set it up. The lodges adventure team came down, set up our fire, got it going + gave us our s'mores kit. This was a dream considering at this point in the night Carter just wanted to be snuggled + I wanted to take photos of everything so we had no free hands to set up a fire.


Unfortunately, right as we got comfortable in front of the fire, it started pouring down rain. Like the kind of rain you see in movies. I grabbed Carter + ran up to our room while poor Ariel grabbed all of our stuff and came up shortly after us. We ended the night with a bath + after Carter went down, Ariel + I sat in bed, drank red wine + ate Tillamook Ice Cream from the pantry.


The next morning we spent some time drinking coffee in our pajamas on the balcony + really just soaked up the views. Before heading back home we grabbed a bite to eat at the Meridian again - too good to only eat at once - and let Carter crawl around the hallways to burn some energy.


We had the best time on our little stay cation. The lodge is absolutely incredible + is so relaxing. The staff is hands down some of the best hotel staff that I've ever had. They were so accommodating + they all loved Carter. We didn't get a chance to go to the Spa this time but I know we'll be back soon to check it out.
