Hidden gem

4.8 on September 06, 2014

Wheeler On The Bay Lodge goes above and beyond in Service, Value and Cleanliness. It is a great hidden gem.

Great stay at Wheeler on the Bay

4.6 on September 04, 2014

The ability to dock a boat right in front of the lodge was convenient for fishing and crabbing. The outdoor seating and picnic area was a great way to enjoy the coast setting and beautiful sunsets.

comfortable and convenient location

pleasant surroundings and personable owners who made you feel at home

Nestled on the Nehalam

4.6 on August 29, 2014

Wheeler on the Bay is a wonderful destination for fun and relaxation. My wife and I have stayed there 3-4 times now. We take our kayaks and paddle the Nehalam River. Don't have a kayak, no need to worry, Pat and Tracy will loan you theirs. Speaking of Pat and Tracy, they are one of the main reasons we like staying at Wheeler on the Bay. They both go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure guests are taken care of. When you check in, you will receive your little basket in which you will place your chosen breakfast items for the following morning. But wait, the fun doesn't stop there. You will also get your choice of snacks which will be used while watching a free movie. For what more can a vacationer ask?

Clean, quiet, and nice Inn

4.2 on August 27, 2014

The owners are very nice, friendly, and helpful. The rooms are clean and roomy. We would stay here again with no hesitation. Very close to the water front.

Terrific Stay- Far Better Than a Chain Motel

5 on August 24, 2014

We recently reserved a room here for friends who would be in town for a visit. It was my first experience with the property, and I found everything to be oustanding. My friends found it even more so! They loved the interaction with the owners on multiple occasions. They felt their room was above and beyond, both in cleanliness and comfort. I have to agree that every base was covered in a very thoughtful manner. No detail was overlooked, and I feel very confident in having all future visitors stay at this property. Thank you Pat & Tracy for your hospitality! It really made a difference for my friends, and is very appreciated.

Lovely and affordable getaway spot

Great Place to Stay

3.6 on August 18, 2014

We arrived and found the owners to be incredibly friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and had everything you could want in them. This lodge is located on a lovely part of the bay and there were some good sunsets to watch from the dock. It also was conveniently located. I'd definitely come back if I was in the area again.


4.4 on August 18, 2014

There are no words to describe this quaint and delightful BB. You have to experience this little oasis by staying there. Pat and Tracy were all about the comfort and needs of their guest which you can see by how well the rooms were prepared and all the special little goodies they give you.They care about you even before you get their. We stayed in the OTTER room which was decorated uniquely to match its name and had a peaceful and restful 2 days . So much to do and experience was not enough time. My husband and I will definitely be returning quests but to another room to have a new adventure every time we go. Thank You and God Bless Pat and Tracy for making us feel so welcomed and cared about. You must stay and experience this port in the storm. You will not be disappointed. Al and Betty Blumberg
