Visit Oregon's Hood River Valley
Experience a touch of paradise at the Old Parkdale Inn in Oregon’s Hood River Valley. A drive to the Inn through the beautiful Columbia River Gorge is a spectacular one, only 1.5 hour from Portland, Oregon, the Inn itself being the half way point on the Mt Hood Scenic Byway.
Old Parkdale Inn sits in the foothills of Oregon’s tallest peak, Mt Hood, in the quaint town of Parkdale, half way between The Mountain and the gorgeous Columbia River Gorge Scenic Area. Surrounded by fruit orchards we are the perfect base for visiting the Hood River County Fruit Loop, a scenic driving tour with stops at family fruit stands, cideries, wineries and more. The Mt Hood National Forest is minutes away with miles and miles of trails and scenic vistas.
Wake to freshly brewed coffee and a delicious breakfast, prepared with the freshest fruits and vegetables for which the Hood River Valley is famous. Our guest rooms each have a private bath, queen beds with luxurious bedding, flat screen satellite TV, DVD, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, and there’s free wireless internet throughout. Our family consists of three cats who are never allowed in the guests rooms but do live in our home’s common space that we share with our guests.

There are 77 waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge on the Oregon Side alone. Some you can drive right up to. Others might take upwards of 6 miles or more.
The Pacific Northwest is home to more Waterfalls than anywhere else in North America. With abundant rainfall and many magnificent rivers, Oregon is a great place to chase and discover waterfalls.
