365+ things to do near the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast
What might you be doing this St. Patrick’s Day? Beer is serious business in the Gorge. So serious that 10 Breweries in the Columbia River Gorge have united to create Breweries in the Gorge
Solera Brewery is a small brewery located in the historic Valley Theater, in Parkdale. Just down the street from our Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast. Try a Hedonist IPA, one of their seasonal beers, or a wild and sour fruit beer aged on local fruit. Gaze out over pear orchards toward the craggy North face of Mt. Hood from our patio.
Stay tuned for information on SoLog Summer Fest 2016, happening in August in Parkdale’s Clear Creek Station.
Be sure to explore the world of craft beer and fine brew pubs. And don’t forget the annual Hops Fest, last Saturday in September

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. 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 will have discount lift for MHM and Timberline through March. They are open if not skiing on spring conditions.
