              Our home is located just a short walk from beautiful Nehalem Bay. It is in a very quiet, friendly neighborhood with flat streets for bike riding. A resident herd of Elk roam the area and occasionally meander into the neighborhood. Close by is a clean 7 mile beach in Manzanita. This quaint little town is home to shops, restaurants, a pub and a small grocery store. Neahkahnie Mountain is just a short drive down 101 and the view from the top is spectacular! The town of Nehalem is just South with antiques stores to roam and the Nehalem River with a boat launch. Just a little South of Nehalem is the town of Wheeler with a Marina for those who want to try their hand at crabbing or fishing. Fifteen minutes North of Nehalem is famous Cannon Beach where you can view Haystack Rock which abounds with sea life that can be seen at low tide. You can also go clamming at Nehalem Bay State Park or further North in the town of Seaside which is a must see for children of all ages.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: Larry & Karen both grew up in the greater Portland area and have frequented the Oregon Coast for many years. We currently live in Gladstone, OR which is a suburb of Portland. Karen is an RN at Providence Portland Medical Center and Larry is Retired.

              Why the Owner Chose Nehalem:
              In 2001 we traveled to Nehalem to answer an ad in the local paper. We immediately fell in love with the area. The very first time we drove down to the bay we saw an elk just grazing down on the bay. We loved the quiet of the neighborhood and yet we are close to everything. We struck a deal that day to buy our house and were thrilled. There is no shortage of wildlife to see including Blue Heron, Eagles who fish in the Bay and of course our resident herd of Elk.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Peaceful and quiet yet only 10-30 minutes away from everything. The one level home is convenient for all ages. The neighbors are super friendly and watch out for each other.
