Come Out and Play
By: Mary Pellegrini
We understand the uncertainty that you are feeling now. While we know that now is not the time for travel, we will continue to provide you with travel inspiration. So while you recharge from home, dreaming about that vacation getaway, know that when it's time for you to travel again, we'll be here to welcome you.
Summer is right around the corner. Soon it will be time to get out a play. Hiking, biking, windsurfing, rafting and golf. We have all this and more in the Hood River Valley, the Columbia River Gorge and the Mt. Hood National Forest, all just minutes from the Old Parkdale Inn.
It will soon be river rafting season! The White Salmon River, just across the Columbia in Washington, beckons you with rapid water and beautiful views. Stay Play and White Water Raft. Book your stay at the Old Parkdale Inn, select your trip, and we will provide you with a discount code to use for booking directly with the professional staff at Wet Planet Whitewater. Stay 3 or more nights and take advantage of our Bed, Breakfast and Boats Packages.
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 Mt Hood Meadows and Timberline Ski Area, offering multi-night packages and access to discounted lift tickets. Stay at the Inn and take advantage of our partnership with Wet Planet Whitewater to receive $10 your raft adventure.
