You're sure to work up an appetite exploring the great outdoors. Here are but a few Outdoor Dining with a View options

The Hood River Valley has no shortage of spectacular Mt Hood Views. There is an abundance of quality places to eat and dine and certainly some great places to explore on your own, perhaps with our Explore Hood River Basket. Imagine relaxing at a panoramic site, sipping on cider and snacking, all the while looking out over the Hood River Valley, Mt Hood or the Columbia River. We'll share with you some of our favorite spots
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 partner with Mt Hood Meadows and Timberline Ski Areas allowing us to offer discount lift tickets to our guests. Stay at the Inn and take advantage of our partnership with Wet Planet Whitewater to receive $10 your raft adventure.
