Outdoor adventure ~ 365+ things to do near the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast
Father’s Day is coming and do you really think Dad wants another tie? Of course not! What Dad really would like is fun, adventure, great dining and comfortable accommodations. Whisk him off to the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast. Bring the bikes or hiking boots and explore the Mt Hood National Forest, just minutes from the inn. Ride the Fruit Loop for an extreme workout and beautiful vistas. How about kayaking on a nearby lake? Bring your equipment, we have equipment storage, or rent in Hood River.
A relaxing drive through the Hood River Valley on the Fruit Loop might be all Dad really wants. Enjoy the scenery will visiting the wineries, pubs and great restaurants. Solera Brew Pub is just down the street from the Old Parkdale Inn as is Apple Valley BBQ. A relaxing end to an adventurous day.
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.
