Nestled in Nehalem forest land is a retreat for lovers of tea, permaculture and plant medicine or anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful getaway.
Brigham and Ginger Edwards opened North Fork 53 Retreat and Tea Gardens in 2016. They restored a farmhouse filling it with reading nooks, a yoga room and a tea bar with tea grown on-site. The living room is a great place to relax and drink tea. There are several spacious bedrooms in the house. Some are designed to fit groups while others are meant for one or two. Restrooms are communal. A group can rent the entire house or individuals and couples can book a room. There is also plenty of seating space to relax by their wood fire.
Guests are encouraged to walk through the garden along the river and use their sauna. In the morning, the hosts meet guests with a beautifully prepared breakfast with locally grown ingredients. The farmhouse is equipped with a large kitchen and dining room table for guests to use. Prior to check-in, the owners send an email to help guests plan their trip. Their recommendations are filled with nearby restaurants and cafes in Nehalem, Manzanita and Wheeler. The Edwards work diligently to make sure guests have a peaceful and rejuvenating weekend.
