About The Nehalem River Inn

Nestled on the banks of an ever-changing tidal river, The Nehalem River Inn offers the perfect home-away-from-home for your coastal adventures to Nehalem and Manzanita.

In 2023, the historic Nehalem River Inn was lovingly restored from its 1930s roots as McLeod’s Tavern & Cabins to an amazing boutique hotel.

Located a few miles from the charming shops and restaurants of Nehalem, Manzanita, Wheeler and Cannon Beach, with views of the majestic Coast Mountain Range and proximity to hiking trails on Neahkahnie Mountain and Nehalem Bay, the Nehalem River Inn provides a gateway to the most magical places along the North Oregon Coast.

Each room at the Nehalem River Inn is unique—with a distinctly modern touch. Details throughout surround guests with a contemporary/rustic aesthetic—from live edge slab headboards to lux linens, bathroom vanities handmade by a local craftsman, and cozy chairs waiting to envelop you.
