You're But One Tank or Charge away from the Old Parkdale Inn
By: Mary Pellegrini
Whether you're looking for outdoor adventure in the Mt Hood National Forest or a quiet romantic weekend escape the Old Parkdale Inn is but a one tank, or charge, road trip away from many parts of Oregon.
We have two EV chargers, one Tesla and one ClipperCreek at the Inn and charges are a free amenity for our guests. Parkdale Farm supply has a self serve fuel pump, 24/7, two blocks from the Inn,
Midway between Hood River, the Columbia River Gorge and Mt Hood, the Old Parkdale Inn, with three well appointed guests rooms, is the ideal home base to tour the Hood River Country Fruit Loop, take an outdoor adventure, or simply slip into a quiet retreat. As our guest your vehicle can charge overnight as you recharge with our comfy accommodations, fresh brewed coffee and a hearty breakfast to start your day.
During the COVID-19 pandemic our open status has moved forward with information provided to us by the CDC and the Oregon Health Authority. We are putting more proactive and preventive measures in place so the Old Parkdale Inn will remain a place of rejuvenation for those seeking space to breathe and relax.
With guidance from the Oregon Health Authority we are focusing our attention on enhanced routine cleaning in preparation of your arrival and will only allow one room to be booked at any given time. Less guest traffic means less co-mingling in the halls and common spaces. All services, include breakfast and beverages will be in-room. We are committed to providing refuge for those of you who need a safe and clean space to ride out this pandemic. We will reduce our rates by 10% until we can resume the full service our guests have come to expect.
If you'd like to support our Inn during this difficult time please consider purchasing a gift certificate for yourself or loved one. Or let's remain optimistic and book a future stay. This won't last forever.
If you're driving an EV be sure to register it at time of online booking. This way we'll be sure to have your station available to you upon arrival. 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 Timberline Ski Area allowing us to offer discount lift vouchers to our guests. Stay at the Inn and take advantage of our partnership with Wet Planet Whitewater to receive $10 your raft adventure.
