Salishan Spa & Golf Resort (Gleneden Beach, OR)

The first few chilly days of fall are finally upon us—and we are already seeking the type of comfort only found outside the city. News flash: the Oregon coast has just as much to offer in the off-season as it does in the summer, so take advantage of crowd-free winter beaches and beautiful seascapes while treating yourself at these coastal spas. Heck, you deserve it! 

Overleaf Lodge & Spa (Yachats, OR)
A three-hour drive from Portland, the Overleaf sits on a rocky outcrop of the coast. The oceanfront views are matched in quality by the spa program. Try offerings such as their signature “Coastal Cranberry Kiss” package that cleanses with a scrub derived from cranberry, pomegranate, and apple juices while being treated to a scalp massage. overleaflodge.com

Salishan Spa & Golf Resort (Gleneden Beach, OR)
A brand new infinity Whirlpool overlooking Siletz Bay makes us think all pools should be infinite. Bring out your inner VIP with their luxurious treatments such as the Earth Mineral Mud Wrap or the Fire & Water treatment that includes a sixty-minute massage, followed by a wrap or scrub, and all preceded by time in their private tub and fireplace suite. salishan.com

Surfsand Resort (Cannon Beach, OR)
Located 12 steps from the area’s iconic Haystack Rock, many of the resort’s 95 guest rooms offer deep soaking tubs and an ocean view. On-site massage therapists are present to offer bodywork basics including an in-room fireside massage as well as other specialty treatments like facials and body scrubs. Surfsand sweetens the deal with unlimited cookies. Done. surfsand.com

Spa Manzanita (Manzanita, OR)
In addition to their regular services, this coastal spa offers seven packages that would make breakdown even the most stressed among us to puddle status. Try the ‘Refreshing Day’, which includes a body scrub, 60-minute massage, a seasonally appropriate pumpkin enzyme facial (soon to dethrone the PSL?) and finishes with a food soak and tea. We already feel Zen just by reading that. spamanzanita.com

Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa (Astoria, OR)
This boutique hotel, situated 600 feet out onto the Columbia, is supported by the same 100 year-old wooden foundation that once held a fish packing company. It offers unparalleled river views along with sights of Cape Disappointment lighthouse and Washington. The spa offers an assortment of massages, all of which can be upgraded with hot stones or aromatherapy. Body treatments are plentiful here so don’t be shy. Choose from a variety including Chocolate Orange Body Wrap and Sea Algae Wrap. cannerypierhotel.com

Earthbound Beauty Spa (Newport, OR)

Elements by the Sea (Cannon Beach, OR)
In addition to their massage work, this Cannon Beach destination also offers energy work such as Reiki Massage to help balance those hectic energies that winter bestows upon us all. Try their Ultimate Body Renewal Package that promises over two hours of detoxification starting with a footbath at sunrise and finishing with a honey butter massage. Yes, please! elementsbythesea.com
