About James & Lana Wetherill

Family oriented with a background in real estate and resort management.

James & Lana Wetherill purchased this house in 2003

Why James & Lana Wetherill chose Newport

When you see the view you will know why. We love the Pacific Northwest and nothing beats the Oregon Coast & Newport as the best Central Oregon Coast location!!

What makes this house unique

LOCATION.. LOCATION.. LOCATION!! Close to all the amenities Newport has to offer but you wouldn't know it from the panoramic oceanfront location and beach access.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had such a great time at this place! The house view was amazing- you can sit and watch the ocean and see the lighthouse even from the kitchen table. The house is nicely built- very comfy and makes you feel right at home. Access to the beach is just down the hill and no houses blocking the view nor the road to the beach. If there will be opportunity to return, we definitely will.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

Big, well equipped, beautiful views! Great house! The beach below the house is amazing and not busy. Only 4 stars because the trail to the beach is a bit rough (certainly not the owners fault) and there is no hot tub (would be amazing on the deck off the master). Plan to return

Owner's Response: Hi! So glad you liked Wow House. The beach trail is currently under repair and therefore a bit rough, but will be better than ever when finished. Thanks so much for coming and please let us know when you wish to book a return visit. All Our Best!! Jim & Lana

Wow House In Newport Oregon

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Wow House in Newport, Oregon and it was perfect for the number we had in our group, as well as being the perfect site for a mini vacation for all of us. Large picture windows looked right out onto the ocean and lovely beach. The kitchen was amazingly well stocked and contained every item we could possibly want to use for simple or gourmet style cooking. The house was clean, even though a little worn, and certainly the bedrooms and bathrooms were ample for all four couples. The Wetherills were great hosts and communication was timely and appreciated. It was obvious that they wanted to be accommodating hosts. No complications whatsoever, made this an experience we all want to repeat. Newport is a great town for exploring, with educational and fun activities, something for everyone.

This house has it all.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the listing are great, but in person the house is even better. The view is amazing, and it is more spacious than we had imagined. The location is convenient . The house is extremely well equipped, we had brought several things along that it turned out we did not need. Plenty of room for parking in the driveway. The beach access is actively under construction. We did not go down to the beach from the house, but we did see many others doing so, so it must be passable. Access from Agate Beach or Nye Beach is a very short drive away.

Everything we hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the WOW house in early May. The house was spectacular and had everything that you could ever want for accommodations and cooking and comfort. We could not have asked for more. Very spacious and the view, oh the view... WOW! Highly recommend to bring binoculars as I was able to see whale spouts and catch a glimpse of their huge tails submersing. The beach is accessible if you are adventurous on the North side of the house, otherwise you can drive about a mile North and there is parking for 6 or 8 cars and easy access. Highly recommend to arrange a beachcombing session with Laura from "Rock your World" in Lincoln City to learn how to find and identify Jasper, Jade, Agate and other minerals. We had a blast doing that and brought home more that we should have :-).

You won't go wrong with this home, we loved every minute of it.

No Doubt This is a Great Place

  • 4 of 5

The impressive view does not outshine the home itself. Very comfortable for six of us; all adults. We did not use the bunk room at all. Very well stocked, better than other places we have stayed. The master suite is amazing; the other guests joked my wife and I should pay a larger share. The living room is so comfortable with huge windows and a great view of the ocean and beach. The ladies did not fess up the rocking chair and lazy boy in front of the windows. The kitchen had everything we wanted and more. Three of us easily worked together in the kitchen. The kitchen is open to the dining room and most of the living room. The silver ware was not cheap as I have seen in other locations.

Some of the mattresses are due replacement, but they are not so bad that any of us lost sleep. The water pressure could use a boost for showers, but there was plenty of hot water for six adult runners.

The location is excellent. Its only a few blocks to get to the center of Newport. When leaving the property use 11th St. There is a traffic light there and that makes it easier to enter traffic.

There are multiple accesses to the beach. The one closest to the house has some construction and dispute with the county. The amount of trash in that location is ridiculous. I ran every morning on the beach and it only took a few minutes to walk up the street to another access area.

It really was a great house. The shortfalls are minor.
