What might you be doing this St. Patrick’s Day? Beer is serious business in the Gorge. So serious that 12 Breweries in the Columbia River Gorge have united to create Breweries in the Gorge. Ask us for a Passport, or download the app, and spend a couple days exploring them all.
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. Gaze out over pear orchards toward the craggy North face of Mt. Hood from their patio, named a top 10 best view.
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. 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.
