Shopping Small adds up to Big Things. The coronavirus has upended daily life in Oregon, with travel and tourism being the hardest-hit industries. Small businesses have been crippled and are counting on all of us to rebuild, promote, and sustain our resilient communities.
We’d like to share what’s not to miss in our community of Mt Hood Parkdale, extending a show of small business camaraderie and economic optimism.

We’d like to extend an invitation to reserve your room at the Old Parkdale Inn, visit Parkdale and Shop Small because shopping at a family-owned business such as The Old Parkdale Inn or purchasing specialty items from your favorite local store helps to promote more vibrant communities. Purchase a gift certificate for a stay at Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast, either for yourself when you’re ready to travel again, or as a thoughtful gift. We thank you in advance.
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, wind and weather permitting. 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’ve created some enticing packages for your Stay Play and Ski Vacation on Mt Hood.
