Welcome to the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast in the beautiful Hood River Valley. And day 2 of the B and Bs Around the World #bnbphotochallenge21 – Exterior Shot and a bit of history.
The Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast, located in the Hood River Valley, minutes from the Columbia River Gorge and Oregon’s highest peak, Mt Hood. The fertile valley has over 3 million fruit trees: pears, apples, cherries, stone fruit and berries.
Built in 1910 for Charles and Lillian Craven, the inn is located in the foothill valleys of Mt. Hood. Visit historic Timberline Lodge, a classic WPA-era mountain lodge, which offers North America’s longest ski season.
In the 60’s the house was purchased by the McIsaac Family, another pioneering family in the Hood River Valley. And for about 30 years tenants rented a room in the boarding house. It was converted into a bed and breakfast in 1998 and we purchased it in 2003.
Our first tasks were to improve curb appeal with an exterior paint job and garden design. A new kitchen, dining room and guest room makeovers transformed the Inn.
We’re your home base for exploring and enjoying the Hood River Valley and beyond.
After a full day, you’ll love the peace and tranquility of the Old Parkdale Inn. Relax in the gardens, perhaps with your favorite beverage, by the bonfire, roast some s’mores, weather permitting of course.
The Hood River Fruit Loop is located in the beautiful Hood River Valley at the foot of majestic Mt. Hood offering you a variety of wines, fruits, vegetables, flowers, ciders, and food. Adventures such as kayaking, windsurfing, skiing, snow boarding, biking and hiking await as do Mt. Hood Meadows, Cooper Spur Mountain Resort, and Timberline Ski areas. The vast Mt. Hood National Forest offers abounding trails and wildlife. During the summer months stay at the Inn and take advantage of our partnership with Wet Planet Whitewater to receive $10 your raft adventure.
