Weekend Getaway: Iron Springs Resort, Copalis Beach, WA
In 2017 at the end of June we took a long weekend and headed to the Washington coast for our babymoon (and also our 5th wedding anniversary). I’m so excited to share about this place here because we had such a great time! We stayed at Iron Springs Resort in Copalis Beach because it’s known for being super dog-friendly, and it had been a dream of mine to take our pups to the beach.
Copalis Beach is located just north of Ocean Shores, and offers a gorgeous stretch of beach. The resort offers comfortable, nicely sized cabins with full kitchens. They even offer amenities with furry guests in mind. The balconies have great views, as the cabins are situated up a ways above the beach. (This does mean you’ll have to walk a bit to get down to the ocean, depending on which cabin you’re in. We were in one of the furthest ones, and actually drove and parked down below because I was pregnant.) We cooked all of our meals in our kitchen using things we brought with us, and even roasted s’mores in the fireplace. There is a small convenience store on the property as well.
Our favorite part of the whole trip was the beach, of course. Although there were other people staying at the resort, we could walk down just five minutes and have a whole stretch of beach to ourselves. We had great weather too – I even caught a sunset for the first time EVER on the Washington coast. (It’s usually overcast!)
Our stay was perfect and relaxing. We were either cozied up in the cabin, or out exploring the beach – we never left the property. (And never wanted to.) We’re planning a trip to go back with friends – maybe in the fall. If you’re looking for a pet-friendly vacation spot in Washington, this is definitely one to consider! See for yourself :)
