New lodge designed for outdoor adventurers

Soul Community Planet (SCP), a Holistic Hospitality company providing fair-priced lodging centered on the values of personal wellness, social good and the environment, opened the newly renovated SCP Depoe Bay on Jan. 24. Located near many of Oregon’s top surf breaks, most picturesque shorelines and best fishing, the new lodge features bohemian-style guest rooms, a communal coworking space, fitness and yoga studio and Provisions market. SCP Depoe Bay is accepting room reservations with special introductory rates starting at $119 per night for a limited time only.

“Each SCP venue uniquely embodies the values of Soul, Community and Planet. SCP Depoe Bay has been renovated into an intimate surf lodge – ideal for coastal adventure-seekers and for small retreat groups focused on personal enrichment and wellness. The interpretation of our core values is felt throughout the lodge – from the signature Peaceful guest room to the large Commons area perfect for guests to connect, work and create. SCP Depoe Bay also showcases our earth-first sustainability programs, including our virtual elimination of disposable plastics and ‘to-go’ containers,” said Soul Community Planet Co-Founder and CEO Ken Cruse. “The Oregon Coast already has its share of great accommodations serving the tourist class. We look forward to serving the adventure class – surfers, wellness seekers and coastal wanderers — at the new SCP Depoe Bay.”

Prior to reopening, the lodge underwent an 18-month, $400,000 renovation which transformed the former inn into a surfing- and fishing-style lodge with a casual, bohemian, eco-friendly vibe. It is designed to appeal to travelers looking for outdoor adventure and recreation, as well as for those who share the company’s commitment to earth-friendly and socially responsible practices.

The lodge has 13 guest rooms, each with a view of the harbor. Guests can choose from six regular guest rooms or opt for one of the six shared or communal rooms, designed to sleep between two and six people. Additionally, the lodge has one Peaceful room, which was mindfully designed for guests’ relaxation and focus. SCP’s Peaceful rooms provide an environment free of the usual distractions — like TVs, clocks and radios — and include added amenities to enhance guests’ peace and clarity, including a yoga mat, meditation pillow and sound machine, as well as a selection of essential oils and calming teas.

The diverse facilities and spectacular coastal location of the SCP Depoe Bay make it an ideal base for small retreats. The SCP Depoe Bay will produce signature retreats throughout the year and will host visiting retreat leaders, who will provide programs for meditation, yoga, shinrin yoku and other forms of personal enrichment and wellness.
