Beer is serious business in the Gorge.  So serious that 13 Breweries in the Columbia River Gorge have united to create Breweries in the Gorge.  Ask us for a Passport, or download the app, and spend a couple days exploring them all.

Parkdale Oregon’s own small craft Brewery

Solera Brewery is a small brewery located in the historic Valley Theater, in Parkdale, just down the street from our Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast. Gaze out over pear orchards toward the craggy North face of Mt. Hood from their patio, named a top 10 best view.

Be sure to explore all the craft beers and fine brew pubs in the Columbia River Gorge

Reserve your Stay Now

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. We have EV and Tesla Chargers for guest use.

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 Area, offering multi-night packages and access to discounted lift tickets.
