Fine. I’ll admit it. We have an obsession with the Oregon Coast. As I am typing this, I’m staring at my dayplanner which has 4 more weekend trips booked to the coast & that’s just through May! So yeah, it’s becoming a thing. When Hart’s Camp invited us to visit Pacific City again & stay in their adorable airstream hotel it was a YES (an excited yes, to be exact.) Basically you had me at glamping.
We left Portland after work on a Friday and drove the 2.5 hours to Pacific City. It took us a bit longer because we encountered some crazy snow along the mountain pass so I was beyond ready to relax once we made it to Hart’s. Hart’s Camp is located behind The Inn at Cape Kiwanda, which is directly across the street from the beach at Cape Kiwanda & the dunes! It’s maybe a five minute walk from the airstream to the ocean. Each trailer has a full kitchen, an indoor shower, outdoor shower (Matt’s FAVORITE feature), a BBQ pit, indoor kitchen, outdoor picnic table, beds with super cozy sheets & all the cooking supplies you need! Plus, a chemex coffee maker if you need that caffeine fix. The storage space in these trailers is impressive!
We brought our own meals to cook & made sure we were stocked up in snacks, tea & kombucha (our faves!!). During the day we ran around the beach, playing in the dines. And at night, we built a campfire in our private backyard space & grilled salmon + made some pretty killer smore’s. We had planned to wake up at sunrise every day BUT the bed was so ridiculously comfortable that we opted for cuddle time instead. Right outside the door from our trailer, there was a kite shop which we visited and left with the cutest shark kite you’ve ever seen. Matt ran up and down the dunes flying that thing everywhere!! It was the perfect purchase!! Most definitely stop by the kite shop & show them some love.
We stayed through Sunday & checked out of Hart’s Camp on our final day there but decided to stay in Pacific City until sunset just to see the beach transform. There is nothing like a sunset on the coast. Trust me. The town is pretty small but has everything you need for the weekend, including Pelican Brewing (try the beer flight), Stimulus Coffee & some mighty fun breakfast tacos at Ben and Jeff’s! There’s also a small market with lots of food + drinks + seafood if you do need to stock up while you’re there. Or if you just need an ice cream cone because you are at the beach.
I’ve always wanted to stay in an Airstream & think my new retirement plan is to own one eventually. It was SO cozy & had the perfect mix of comfort + camping. Thanks again to Hart’s Camp for having us! You are some amazing people, ya know that?!
Stay tuned for our next trip!
