This post is written in partnership with Headlands Lodge & Spa. Thanks for providing us with 2 incredible night stays, food, and especially a chance to create the gorgeous photos of your place as well as the beautiful Oregon coast. #headtoHeadlands
It was an easiest yes when the Headlands team reached out to me offering this opportunity to check out Headlands Lodge & Spa, located in Pacific City, part of the Oregon Coast. The drive from Seattle after work on Friday was tough, but my boyfriend and I made it safe and sound around 11:30 pm on November 2. We spent the full day on Saturday and half of Sunday shooting content (some to be submitted to Headlands), explored the incredible Cape Kiwanda area, and enjoyed each other’s company. It was truly a restorative and relaxing trip we didn’t know we needed.
Headlands Lodge and Spa is not like your normal hotel nor is a traditional resort. It is the coastal experience. Every design element is thoughtfully placed, from the color combination to the placement of every piece of furniture throughout the lodge. My favorite has got to be waking up to the incredible ocean view and the Haystack Rock right in front of my eyes. I love that the lodge is fully equipped with friendly and accommodating staff and a handful of activities to recommend their guests. There are a spa located in the first floor, a salt-water hot tub, a steam room, a gym, yoga classes, and bonfire by the beach at night. Don’t forget to check out the Ca-coon on the third floor which Headlands labeled it as the Hide-Out! We took the bikes out to explore more of the town nearby, discovered Grateful Bakery that made the best scones (try their savory ones!), and had so much fun shooting at the beach afterwards. Meridian Restaurant, located right inside the lodge, is a must-try if you decide to stay in. There are endless opportunities to do things whether you opt in or decide to head out and explore since the beach is just steps away. I also love climbing up the sand dune and being able to walk to the beach any time. I already can’t wait to be back here soon.
Below photos are the front guest greeting space and the Meridian Restaurant. Incredible decor and furniture. I’m obsessed with everything!
The Haystack Rock and Cape Kiwanda Beach are just steps away from Headlands. Don’t hesitate to ask the Headlands staff for any recommendations on what to do as they’re incredibly helpful.

Thanks for reading! Come back in a few days for the New York Travel Diary, I promise! I am headed out to LA bright and early Thursday and will spend the long weekend there. Stay updated with where I’m at and what I’m up to on my Insta-stories, here. I know I’m so blessed with all of the recent travels, it’s partly is because of your readership and your interest in what I do. I eventually want to expand to do more travel trips like this, document more food and other people as well as being the one stop for anything design, creative, and lifestyle. Let me know what you would like to see more from me. I’m incredibly greatful to work side by side with my boyfriend who has been staying up all night and day to edit my photos this quickly. I want to revamp my blog, and soon I’ll have some help. I’m excited for lots of change in the near future in both personal and professional career-wise. So stay tuned and make sure to check back soon! Have a great weekend ahead!
