I absolutely loved my time here! I first heard about the Old Wheeler Hotel when I read about something called "The Wheeler Moment", a strange but common occurrence which involves synchronicity of some sort. Intrigued, I wanted to find out more about it and investigate the area a bit. First of all, the entire Nehalem Bay and Nehalem Valley area is just beyond beautiful. On one side you have the bay and the ocean, on the other side you have the mountains and the valleys, all of it dominated by Neahkahnie Mountain which apparently Native Americans consider to be a holy mountain and local legends suggest hidden Spanish treasure to be buried somewhere in the vicinity. I had Room 3 and had a direct view of Neahkahnie Mountain and the bay greet me each morning. It was wonderful. Decorated with antiques, beautiful rugs, the rooms are very, very comfortable and clean and Katie was a gracious host who made a continental style breakfast available each morning in the common room which also had a view of the bay and mountain. The ambiance is definitely romantic and comfortable. There's books to read and quite a special collection of DVD films, films with a feel-good and spiritual inclination, titles like "An Affair to Remember", "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" or "The Big Lebowski." I had my own bathroom which was also super clean and stocked with top of the line shampoos and essentials. I don't know if I will ever be back in this magical area of the Oregon coast but I'd stay here in a heartbeat again. There's definitely a special energy here.
What a beautiful and romantic place!! We stayed in the honey moon suite. So worth it 2 person jetted tub over looking bay. Will be back!!! And right across from the Rising Star!!! A must super amazing food!!
What a wonderful place the Old Wheeler Hotel is. The rooms are furnished tastefully and simply, and have a view of the bay. Nothing makes me relax and not think of work like gazing out over the bay as I thoughtfully gulp down my morning coffee. Said coffee is available in the common room, which also contains a fridge for necessities such as beer, continental breakfast in the morning, and a good looking chess board. Bathrooms are big, staff is friendly, rooms don't break the bank. Reading the in-room guest book entries in funny voices provides much entertainment. Hell, what more could one ask for?
