Headlands Lodge & Spa

Spa Manager

Headlands Coastal Lodge and Spa is a luxury retreat catering to adventure-seekers and the active Pacific NW lifestyle.  Our carefully appointed 33 room hotel, restaurant, and spa offer a breathtaking view of the ocean, Haystack Rock, and Cape Kiwanda.  In this unique career opportunity, you will build and lead a high performing team of professionals to open our coastal lodge and spa in December 2017.

About the Lodge

The Headlands Lodge concept responds to a gap in the market for a luxury oceanfront experience that presents outdoor recreational opportunities for the next generation traveler.  The resort—planned to showcase the active, outdoor culture of the carefree, casually-elegant, and authentic Pacific City lifestyle—is the inspiration of Jeff Schons and Mary Jones at the helm of the Nestucca Ridge Family of Companies. The company also owns and operates the Inn at Cape Kiwanda, Cottages at Cape Kiwanda, Shorepine Vacation Rentals and the award-winning Pelican Brewing Company. 

“For all the character found in so many Oregon coast towns, there is no luxury hotel that embraces the unique Oregon outdoor culture and encourages guests to immerse themselves in all the natural surroundings and recreational experiences we have to offer,” says Mary Jones, owner/partner. “We’ll offer an unexpected, undiscovered retreat created with active travelers and families in mind.”

 The new property joins a unique combination of beachfront cottages, vacation rentals, an inn and the award-winning Pelican Brewing Company—the only oceanfront brewpub on the Oregon Coast.  The Nestucca Ridge Family of Companies is an organically-grown collection of coastal businesses dedicated to memory-making beach vacations, meetings and ownership experiences.

Pacific City

Pacific City is off the beaten path on a relatively undiscovered stretch of the majestic Oregon Coast.  Cape Kiwanda, in Pacific City, enjoys a storied connection to the ocean, local rivers, beachfront and majestic outdoor playground.  Surfing, kayaking, hiking, photography, beach-combing, and fishing are just some of the outdoor activities enjoyed in this beautiful beach town.
