Ski Mt Hood

Stay, Play and Ski in Hood River, Oregon

Spring skiing on Mt Hood is going to be awesome at least through May.  More snow is on the way this weekend and Mt Hood Meadows Ski Resort offers discounted lift tickets to guests staying at participating Hood River area lodging properties. Many of the Columbia River Gorge Bed and Breakfast Association inns welcome our destination guests who can purchase their discount lift tickets directly from our innkeepers.  The cost of these tickets are only $49 for adults and $30 for juniors ages 7-14.  The experienced skier can purchase a multiple day pass as can the beginner for $99.  Make sure you ask if they are a Ski Destination Program participant.  Book your room and leave the rest to us.  We will get you settled in for a comfortable nights sleep, serve fresh coffee and a hearty breakfast in the morning, issue your discount lift ticket and point you in the direction of Mt Hood Meadows Ski Resort, 34 miles from the town of Hood River and only 19 miles from Mt. Hood/Parkdale.

Why stay in a Columbia River Gorge hotel when you can stay at an Hood River Bed and Breakfast, have your scones and lift tickets, too!

Catherine Creek Waterfall and Catherine Creek Recreational Area

February 14th, 2018 by Gorge Lodging

Bald Eagle
Catherine Creek Trail #4400
 is a one mile paved trail with great views of the Columbia River on the south side of WA14.  In the spring this is a premier location for Columbia Gorge Wildflowers and bird viewing.  No flowers yesterday but we anxiously await the Grass Widow which according to my Instagram feed were in full bloom around the middle of February last year.  We did see a few bald eagles, hawks, woodpeckers on this quiet winter day.  Parking is on the north side of WA14 where you can pick up trails for longer hikes and more great wildflower and bird viewing.

You’ll have stunning Columbia River Gorge Views pretty much the whole trail. Interpretive signs guide you through open grasslands, vernal ponds and oak woodlands. Take a break on one of the many benches along the trail, one being a the overlook of Catherine Creek and Catherine Creek Falls.

Chasing Waterfalls and Waterfall Wednesday. With 77 waterfalls on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge alone, we’ve set out to find them all plus those in the nearby Mt Hood National Forest, Washington and beyond. And when we do we’ll share our finds with you, our guests, so you too can set out to Chase Waterfalls.

Extra Day to Geocache in the Columbia River Gorge

February 4th, 2016 by Gorge Lodging

GeocachingWhat excites a geocachers more than a First to Find? Having an extra day to find a FTF.  Once every 4 years an extra day is added to the month of February. And we all know what that means: an Extra 24 hours to Geocache!

Celebrate with two new geocaching souvenirs.  The first souvenir can only be earned on February 29 by attending a geocaching event, one happening that morning in Hood River.  The other souvenir can be earned all weekend long (February 27-29) by getting outside and finding a geocache.

The screenshot shows caches in the Upper Hood River Valley, where our inn, Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast is located.  The star signifies the cache we placed on our property GC4FH6G Parkdale Travel Bug Inn.

“Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.  Geocaching.com is the headquarters for the activity

Christmas and Holiday Markets in the Columbia River Gorge

Christmas, Holiday Markets and the Innkeepers of the Columbia Gorge Bed and Breakfast Association invite you to celebrate the season and festivities with us. Some of our innkeepers really deck the halls.  Some have a more subdued style.

Hood River, Oregon, becomes a snow globe, a true old-fashioned small town holiday spot. The historic and beautiful downtown is adorned with holiday lights, bows and cheer.

Mosier Country Christmas Fair is Dec. 5 and 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Over 60 vendors, food and drink and tree sales.  Admission is $2 per person and 1 can of food ( human or pet).  Kids under 12 are free.  Photos with Santa from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  There is also a book and bake sale at the Mosier Library (2 blocks east of the school).

As a hush comes over the crowd, the Mayor and all the children will take a deep breath, then blow on the tree to magically bring it blazing alight.  This is THE community family event of the season in Bingen and White Salmon, so don’t miss enjoying the start of the holiday season with your family, friends, visitors,
and the rest of our community.

Little Multnomah Falls and Waterfall Wednesday

November 11th, 2015 by Gorge Lodging

Little Multnomah Falls is just upstream from its bigger, and slightly more famous, sibling Multnomah Falls but stunning in its simple beauty.

Multnomah Creek traverses a flat shelf to create 15 foot Little Multnomah Falls, seen from the viewing platform above Multnomah Falls, before leveling off and plunging over the basalt edge into the Columbia River Gorge.  Travel upstream and chase 3 more waterfalls.  Make the 6 mile loop and discover 7 waterfalls total.

And thus start a series of blog posts, Chasing Waterfalls and Waterfall Wednesday.  According to Wiki there are at least 238 waterfalls in Oregon!  I’m guessing even more than that.  Wouldn’t it be grand to witness the beauty of every one of them?  With 77 waterfalls on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge alone, we’ve set out to find them all plus those in the nearby Mt Hood National Forest, Washington and beyond. And when we do we’ll share our finds with you, our guests, so you too can set out to Chase Waterfalls.
