Holiday Shopping and Gift Wrapping Getaway
By: Mary Pellegrini
Enjoy a relaxing getaway while getting a jump on your holiday shopping. A perfect time for girlfriends, guys and couples looking for a little R&R before the hectic Holiday events. Pick up your holiday pies and wines. There are many unique shops and boutiques in Hood River and the surrounding area.
Begin your holiday shopping with a getaway at the Old Parkdale Inn. After downtown shopping meander your way through the Hood River Valley stopping at the venues on the Fruit Loop. With lavender farms, yarn shops, bakeries, country stores, wineries and more you are sure to find a unique gift for everyone on your list. Arrive back at the inn to a relaxing evening set aside for wrapping your treasures. Make sure you bring your wrapping paper.
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.
