Try this Alternative to Air Conditioning

Try this Alternative to Air Conditioning

The livin’ is certainly easy during the summer here in the Hood River Valley but lately it's been hot!  We added air conditioning to our guests rooms last summer.  Really didn't need it before that as days were warm, nights were cool and this old house, being well insulated, stayed comfy.  No doubt weather is changing so we made the decision to add AC.

We think you'll love this alternative to AC if only for a few hours.  Fresh air, cool water on the White Salmon River  

The White Salmon River, just across the Columbia in Washington, beckons you with rapid water and beautiful views. Stay Play and White Water Raft.  Book your stay at the Old Parkdale Inn, select your trip, and we will provide you with a discount code to use for booking directly with the professional staff at Wet Planet Whitewater.  Stay 3 or more nights and take advantage of our Bed, Breakfast and Boats Packages.

Wake up to fresh brewed coffee and a gourmet breakfast, then set out to find new adventures. When your day on the water is done relax in our gardens or shady porch, share a glass of wine as the sun sets and evening gives way to a blanket of stars.

Save up to 20% off lodging when staying three to five nights with us and and purchasing raft trips through Wet Planet Whitewater.  Give us a call or book directly online

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.
