The Caring Cabin

The Alexandra Ellis Caring Cabin™ provides children and teens that are in treatment, along with their families, with an extraordinary place to retreat, relax, and create once-in-a-lifetime memories outside of the hospital environment.

Nestled in 24 acres of surrounding woods with plentiful wildlife and a serene lake, the Caring Cabin provides an essential health connection to nature and healing.

About 40 friends and family members visit CCA’s beautiful Caring Cabin hideaway on the Oregon Coast in a typical month. This free adventure helps restore the energy and hope kids need to battle their illness over the long haul.

CCA’s Caring Cabin was built in 2006 with the love and dedication of friends, foundations, and businesses that donated nearly one million dollars in cash, goods and services, and even the land itself. Over 4,000 family members have visited since we first opened the Caring Cabin’s doors.

“What an amazing place! Fynn was so happy he could invite his cousins too! Their favorites were boating, fishing, running down sand dunes, splashing in the ocean, playing air hockey, basketball, and so much more!”

– Kate Nackerud, Fynn’s mom
