The Oregon Coast's Hidden Treasure

Wheeler is a small and charming village near the ocean, located on the banks of the Nehalem River. Its historic buildings and sunny climate make it an unhurried refuge on the North Coast.

Surrounded by hills amidst the coastal lowlands that are so often shrouded in fog and mist, Wheeler is well-known by locals to be in a sunspot, with frequent sunshine and stunning views of the Nehalem River and Bay. The small marina looks out over the river and serves as a viewpoint for breathtaking sunsets. Near the riverside main street are local bakeries, cafes, restaurants, and the restored historic Old Wheeler Hotel, just across from Waterfront Park.
