Oregon Coast Lodging Moment: Wheeler on the Bay

Published 2010
By Andre' Hagestedt


(Wheeler, Oregon) - Care for a particularly entertaining watery experience? It could be floating around Nehalem Bay. It could be bounding around the beach at Manzanita or Rockaway. Or maybe just some time in a hot tub.

Wheeler on the Bay Lodge, in – you guessed it – Wheeler, manages to encompass all those. This spot is a part of the north Oregon coast that gets a little passed by, quite literally, because it's part of an inland stretch of 101 that veers away from the beach. So people tend to whiz right through this tiny town of about six blocks in length.

The flipside of this is there are not many throngs to deal with. Thus, this little charmer of a lodging manages to stay a bit of a nifty secret to those who are in the know.


A few rooms are right on the bay, with those engaging views of all things aquatic happening out there. You can rent a kayak from here and go exploring the minute details and hidden marshes of the bay as well. Even better, anything longer than a two-night stay gets you a kayak run for free.

During the day this place is charming enough, especially with what amounts to your own private dock on the bay. At night, however, the lights and water become an ethereal experience. Highway 101, 580 Marine, Wheeler, Oregon. 503-368-5858. 800-469-3204. www.wheeleronthebay.com
