Should you choose to head outdoors and have a go at an awesome winter sport you’ll enjoy the quiet serenity at the Old Parkdale Inn when you return. Only minutes from the Mt Hood National Forest you can venture to ski Mount Hood Meadows or Timberline Ski Area, XC ski or snowshoe the many forest road and trails. For us there is nothing better than a hike in the Mt Hood National Forest, fresh snow, no wind, fresh tracks. If it’s snowing, it’s even better.
The Mt Hood National Forest is about 5 miles from the Old Parkdale Inn. Plenty of snow parks, trails, and our favorite, forest roads to explore. A couple of weeks ago a single gal spent three days with us, put her XC (cross-country) skies on right outside our door, and headed out through town, around the soccer field and out into the orchards.
If it's just quiet retreat you're looking for we got that. We’ll start your day with hot coffee and a hearty breakfast and there's hot beverages 24/7. Come mealtime, head for craft beer and a wild rice burger at Solera Brewery, just a block from the inn. Sorry Folks, they’re closed on Wednesday. Also walking distance from the Inn, Apple Valley BBQ, closed Monday and Tuesday, serves up top-quality meats, amazing side dishes and a hefty dose of small-town hospitality.
Let the Old Parkdale Inn be your home base when exploring the Hood River Valley, Columbia River Gorge or the Mt Hood National Forest. Whether your idea of a good vacation is fresh tracks on Mt Hood or relaxing in our gardens with a good book and your favorite beverage, there's something near by for everyone.
