Travel To Mount Hood Parkdale With A Group
By: Mary Pellegrini
We love hosting groups. We’ve had hikers and bikers, quilters and snowshoers. 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. Some of our larger groups have pulled a sleeping bag or two into our suites. We only allow this if your are all in the same group with a maximum of 9-10 guests.
We hosted a group of women who used the Old Parkdale Inn as their home base. They embarked daily on adventures designed with a blend of outdoor physical activities, spiritual exercises and community building experiences. Their adventures included visiting the Hood River County Fruit Loop venues and hiking and canoeing at Lost Lake. After a day out they returned to the quiet of the Inn's gardens for discussions, prayer and reflection and the comfort of a good night’s sleep.
Two years ago a group of adventurous women ascended on the Old Parkdale Inn, again using it as their home base for 5 days of hiking the many trails in the Mt Hood National Forest. And then there was the snowshoeing group. After a day on the trail they returned to a hot bowl of soup, a glass of wine and a warm fire. A perfect ending to a perfect day. Give us a call for group rates. We’d love to be your host
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.
