We have taken a lot of care to transform our 3-acre grounds into a unique, relaxing, and fun experience for our guests. In addition to your private quarters, here are some of the things that truly make the Sou’wester like no other resort:
It’s just what you’d expect from us… a vintage store in a vintage trailer. The Thrifty is a true gem. All items are super moderately priced. Forgot something? The Thrifty usually has you covered.
By appointment only. The Garden Spa & Finnish Sauna can be booked privately for a truly relaxing experience. It has a beautifully renovated and heated indoor changing room with a shower. It also has an outdoor cold-plunge bath and shower. The sauna is built out of the highest quality clear western cedar and hand-milled Port Orford Cedar benches. Holds up to 7 comfortably and clothing is optional. Once your time is booked you can pick up your key and two towels at the front desk 15 minutes before your session. *Bookable up to 7 days in advance. Appointments open up on the hour. Please call the front desk to join the waitlist.
“The Q-Tea” tea trailer is a tiny teahouse nestled among the trees next to our Sauna and Wellness Trailer. The Q-Tea is by appointment only. The Q-tea can seat up to four persons comfortably or feel free to take your tea back to your cozy space or walk the grounds!
The Art Trailer Gallery, a 1960’s Aloha, was rescued from a neglected RV park and transformed into a bright and beautiful space to reflect a traditional gallery. Sou’wester Arts 501c3 curates quarterly exhibitions. For information on past, current, and upcoming exhibitions, visit our Art Trailer Gallery page.
The Outdoor Kitchen
The outdoor kitchen is open to all guests. It has a gas stovetop/oven, a microwave, a toaster, a sink with hot water, and a collection of pots, pans, dishes, and silverware. It’s great for guests that stay in our more rustic accommodations. Our fish-cleaning station is next door and is best for all seafood preparations (thanks!).
The Work Lounge
Our newest addition to the grounds, The Work Lounge is a cozy shared space for studying, working, and hanging. Natural light and a fungi-inspired color palette inspire deep breaths and focus. Located just behind the outdoor kitchen open 9a-9p. Mural by Hannah Humphries.
A school bus turned theatre! Open to guests and the public 5p-9p daily. Check here for current shows.
*Please, no food or drink, Thank you!
The Geodesic Dome
Custom built by Golden Trillium Geodesics for the sun-soaked SE corner of our grounds. The Geodesic Dome is a new shared space. Sip your coffee on the surrounding benches or hum a little tune in the middle of the dome for an all-encompassing acoustic sound bath. Open 9a-9p. *Please don’t climb the dome walls and do close any windows you open.
