My husband Don and I bought our home in 2003 and fell in love with Lincoln City. It offered us the relaxed atmosphere of a small town, the beautiful ocean with world class surfing competitions, boating and kayaking opportunities on Devil's Lake, a great community center, live theater, a great public library, culinary center with amazing cooking classes, a free museum, shopping at the Lincoln City Outlet Mall, antiquing, galleries, restaurants and much, much more. It became clear that this is where we would be staying and decided to develop our businesses here and provide for our family also. We opened a quaint eatery (Nelscott Cafe') within walking distance of our home in 2009. We also decided to provide a place for our family to congregate and provide for others to do the same. That decision led us to build this retreat center.
Debbie Williams purchased this house in 2010
We bought the land in 2004 before the quaint village neighborhood of Olivia Beach was built across the street. After witnessing the development of this lovely family community, we asked them to build us a home that could accommodate our growing extended family. I had also attended many women's retreats through our church and noticed things that were missing in the homes we stayed in. I've tried to include everything I noticed was missing - a large kitchen with 3 ovens and large cook-top, 2 dishwashers, large eating areas, separate spaces for people to congregate and lots of sound insulation. Also, an elevator to provide access to those that have difficulty with stairs. I also wanted to provide a space where groups could have training sessions without moving a bunch of furniture in the living room, hence, the theater. We built the home with ample off street parking and also tried to build it so that large groups would not adversely impact the residential neighborhood.
Open living and dining areas to allow for large groups. 40+ seat theater. Ample off street parking. Large back deck for outside dining. Many smaller common areas for small groups. Flexible sleeping areas. Well equipped gourmet kitchen. 3 smaller kitchenettes. Elevator for mobility challenges and loading/unloading. High end finishes and furnishings.
What a lovely place for a retreat! Everything is so luxurious and very convenient. Thank you for making it available to us. I love the way you have painted and decorated. Kay Dilner
What a great place to spend time! This is a lovely, welcoming, comfortable place. Love the decorating and the extra little outches 0 the dispensers in the showers - amazing! Thanks for letting us come and spend the weekend here. It was fabulous. Kathy Smart
What a beautiful, amazing retreat center! The warmth and coziness of the home with the luxury of an exclusive resort, nestled in a serene community! You have provided a place to withdraw, refresh and renew - thank you for this wonderful weekend. His richest blessings - Sandy
I can't wait to come back! Amanda Allquist
The Dawn Treader is a wonderful place for making memories, relaxing, fellowshipping, laughing, and doing it all in amazing comfort. The rooms are beautiful and comfortably decorated, spacious, welcoming, and easy to get a good night's sleep. There is every amenity that you would find in an upscale resort...and attention has been paid to every detail that women like...a bountiful supply of towels, shower amenities, hair dryers, etc. And the kitchen...oh my, you just have to see it for yourself. We loved the fact that our ladies' with knee issues had the use of an elevator, and while the house is very large it also has a snug and homey feeling There are nooks and crannies to carry on conversations, decks to enjoy coffee and listen to the surf, and of course a bit of outlet shopping for free time. The beach is a lovely walk and is always delightful. We have definitely enjoyed our time here, learned about the Lord, and delighted in fellowship. Thank you for a beautiful home that made us feel like queens. ladies of Woodstock Bible Church, Portland OR
This was the perfect house for our family reunion. We had the best time and there was plenty of room for the kids and adults. Something for everyone. We celebrated our parents 50th wedding anniversary while we were there. My sister made a movie of photos throughout those 50 years. It was so fun to be able to watch that in the movie room that had ample room for everyone. We loved the short walk down to the beach. Thank you for providing such a lovely home for us to enjoy this special milestone in. We had an amazing time.
This retreat home was a wonderful way for our family to celebrate Christmas after the actual day and bring in the new year. We had four families and seven children who found exciting things to do all day. The kitchen had everything one would need to prepare any meal including a crock pot. The amenities were so much fun our family never wanted to leave to find something to do. The beach is just a short walk and provides nice exercise, the hot tub was very clean and perfect temperature, and the theater provided enough movies you could always find something you wanted to see. Everything was beautifully decorated for the holiday. The attention to detail and decorating was evident and enjoyed. Our young children did not want to go home and compared their stay with Disneyland and put it right at the top of their fun list. I would highly recommend any family or group get together to visit the Dawn Treader. You will be amazed and delighted.
After coordinating Women's Retreats at Dawn Treader, I was finally able to show my family what a fabulous place I have been raving about for 3 years. Debbie does an amazing job of providing everything we could possibly need - even 2 waffle irons. I had the fun of walking each family through the house as they arrived and watch their jaws drop at the beauty and attention to detail. Debbie was available to answer questions and give us info as needed. She also followed up and even asked if we had any suggestions to make the home even better. We had lots planned for 21 adults + 14 kids and the decks, theater, access to beach and grassy area all made the facility perfect for us. Our retreat group is set to go back in 2015 and hopefully, every year after. Thank you, Debbie, for your vision!
We had such a wonderful time at your house, Debbie. This was the best vacation of my whole life - especially since all our family, except one grandson, was able to be there. We loved the spaciousness of the house and can tell a lot of thought and prayer was put into it. It was so nice to have all the space for everyone. No one was ever crowded and the kids all loved it - they want to live there!!
We thought the pictures on the internet of the house were great, but seeing it and living in it for a week were wonderful. Pictures didn't do it justice! We will remember this vacation always. THANK YOU!!
This home lives up to the hype. The pictures and descriptions provided are spot on and you can rest assured your family will have a relaxing time reminiscing and cooking up a storm in this delightful home. My family (my parents, my 4 brothers and I plus our significant others and children) of 20+ just finished our stay here. The oversized kitchen and dining area meant everyone could hang out and cook and with three ovens, a 6 burner range and every kitchen tool known to man, boy were we able to cook up a storm! The thoughtful layout also meant we had a kids table and an adults table which made meal times a dream.
There are TVs in nearly every room, but with a home theatre, who needs TV. There are many gathering places throughout the house, so little groups naturally form and allow for relaxed interactions without forced conversations or uncomfortable seating arrangements. I loved watching the cousins connect and multiple generations easily interact with one another. It also helped that each adult couple (6 total) had their own room they could retreat to for peace and quite. This was in addition to the two kid rooms. I can't tell you how happy my husband and I were to be able to vacation with out children without having to share a room with them.
I was a little concerned about beach access prior to our arrival since the house isn't directly on the beach. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how close the beach is. It is just a short walk or bike ride (bikes are provided) away. It was actually nice to not be right on the beach as it minimized the sand and noise. The beach is clean and sandy. There are bathrooms and warm showers for washing feet. There are also many families who host campfires at the beach after dark.
The house is well appointed and includes many touches that make it feel like home: ample throw blankets in the common areas, stools in the kids bathroom so they can reach the sink, mini fridges throughout, plenty of parking, etc. There is also a ping pong table in the garage that was a ton of fun. There are a couple of geocaches nearby as well that make for a fun outing.
This was my families first reunion as adults and it couldn't have gone more smoothly. I can't recommend the Dawn Treader more highly and have left its sanctuary with a heart full of love and hope for a future filled with more gatherings like this one.
