By: Mary Pellegrini
Fall has arrived in the Hood River Valley. The kids have gone back to school. The crowds are lessening, especially during the week. We invite you to experience the cool crisp nights, warm days and these 10 things to do before the snow falls. And to beat the crowds we suggest mid week visits. We're offering a fall mid week special through November 15

- Your Breweries of the Gorge passport will guide you through the fabulous breweries in the Columbia River Gorge
- Explore a variety of Ciders
- Discover a new Apple
- Grab some higher elevation Geocaches
- Take a hike that may or may not include a Waterfall or two
- Mountain Bike
- Cycle the fruit loop
- White Water Raft
Let us be home base for exploring and enjoying the Hood River Valley and Mt Hood National Forest. After a full day, you’ll love the peace and tranquility of the Old Parkdale Inn. Relax in the gardens, perhaps with a glass of wine from a bottle you picked up at a local winery or our wine cabinet. We can even have a bonfire, roast some s’mores, if you’d like. We now have EV and Tesla Chargers for guest use.
Outdoor adventures such as kayaking, windsurfing, skiing, snow boarding, and hiking await. Mt. Hood Meadows, Cooper Spur Mountain Resort, and Timberline Ski areas are only a short drive away, as is the vast Mt. Hood National Forest where trails and wildlife abound. We partner with Timberline Ski Area, allowing us to offer discount lift tickets to our guests. Stay at the Inn and take advantage of our partnership with Wet Planet Whitewater to receive $10 your raft adventure.
