Two Washington Coast Family Getaways

Don't let the winter weather deter you from a trip to the coast. You need to bring the right outerwear - warm jackets, rain coats, pant and  boots, gloves, hats and several changes of clothing - but getting cozy after a windy, cold walk is half the fun.  With vast beaches for your kids to explore, and most importantly, time to unplug and enjoy togetherness, you'll have a guaranteed break from your usual routine. 

Below are two family getaway spots—Iron Springs Resort and Seabrook. Although a mere four miles apart, they offer very different settings. The former provides a rustic, charming, and secluded environment, while the latter is a newly constructed "town"  centered on a communal family-friendly experience. Both require a short walk to the beach, so if you have little ones along be sure to bring a carrier.  

 

Iron Springs Resort

Accomodations:

This resort offers 25 semi-private cabins on a bluff overlooking the north end of Copalis Beach. The recently renovated cabins smell like yummy  cedar, and offer a great view of the ocean.

Activities:

You can enjoy the fresh sea air from the deck, explore the beach and the  forest trails that are part of the resort, and relax in front of a cozy fire. The vast beach is only a short walk from the cabins, and the landscape is a treasure trove of fun for kids. 

Don't forget the dog! Iron Springs is pooch friendly, so don't leave your furriest family member home!

Location and Reservations:

3707 State Route 109, Copalis Beach, WA, 98535. 360-276-4230. 

Make reservations here.

 

Seabrook Cottages

Accomodations:

Get ready for side-by-side, picturesque cottages with nicknames such as "Ocean Smores" and "Beachy Keen."

Activities:

The burgeoning beach town of Seabrook is an inviting place, encouraging a more communal experience. It's great for a trip with multiple families traveling together.  Seabrook doesn't have the same secluded feel as Iron Springs Resort, but they offer other features that are big pluses for families —including a fantastic indoor pool and spa, fitness center,  two restaurants, a bakery, ice-cream shop and small grocery store.   You'll also find two playgrounds, bike rentals, and  a paint-your-own-pottery place.

Location and Reservations:

24 Front Street, Pacific Beach, WA, 98571. 360-276-0265. 

Make reservations here.
