Fun Filled Days for a Girlfriend Getaway
By: Mary Pellegrini
We love hosting girlfriend getaways. We’ve had hikers and bikers, quilters and snow shoers. We welcome you to a setting of unspoiled beauty in the Hood River Valley, the Mt. Hood National Forest, and the Columbia River Gorge. We have three queen beds and 1 single sofa bed, sleeping 7. At this time during the COVID pandemic we are only letting two rooms at a time but will make an exception for your group with 5-7 more gals. We only allow this if your are all in the same group with a maximum of 7 guests.
After a day out return to the quiet of the Inn's gardens, maybe a bonfire, and the comfort of a good night’s sleep.
Enjoy 6 wonderful hikes and around the Mt Hood National Forest before the snows fall near the Hood River Valley. Travel Oregon launched the successful 7 Wonders of Oregon campaign. A campaign to get visitors and locals alike out exploring our glorious state. We are so fortunate here at the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast to be flanked by Two of the Seven Wonders: Mt Hood and the Columbia River Gorge
Cycling the Hood River Valley and it's quiet back roads, opens up a world of gorgeous scenery, handcrafted beers and ciders, farm stands, museums, and wineries
Beer, wine, ciders, and spirits
Designate your driver then head out to tour Brew Pubs, distilleries, cideries and wineries in Hood River and the Hood River Valley. Visit our blog posts with information on local venues
The Mt. Hood Loop of the Oregon Cascade Birding Trail rises from the Columbia River to Mt. Hood, the highest point in Oregon, and combines some of the best of the region's birding with legendary Oregon scenery. This loop traverses the Columbia River National Scenic Area and the Mt. Hood National Forest and visits 19 birding sites.
There are well over 20 Geocaches within a 5 mile radius of the Old Parkdale Inn, many within walking distance. Widen that search to 10 miles and that number explodes to 600+.
Fruit stands and Family Farms
From now through the fall, something is always fresh and ready to be picked, snipped or sipped. We suggest to beat the crowds, you visit mid week
