Inspected for cleanliness and comfort, the inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild have always maintained high health and sanitation standards, assuring travelers of consistently high standards in a variety of Bed & Breakfast accommodations. We inspect each member inn regularly to ensure these standards are being met, so our member inns have only had to add a few new protocols in light of new guidelines related to combatting the transmission of COVID-19 from the Oregon Health Authority.

  • All employees will follow CDC guidance for hand washing and hand sanitizing
  • Hand sanitizer will be available in common areas
  • Our staff will pass a health check or complete a health survey prior to each shift.
  • Employees will wear face coverings as required to do so by health authorities

Cleaning and Sanitation

  • Each inn will use enhanced standards to clean and sanitize all guest rooms and communal spaces
  • Cleaning products and procedures meet Oregon Health Authority sanitization and disinfection standards

Physically Distancing

  • Innkeepers will perform guest services via no-contact or appropriately distanced delivery methods
  • Staff will not enter the guest room throughout the duration of your stay unless agreed upon for a specific need
  • Breakfast seating will provide appropriate distancing solutions and as always will be served in accordance with all health recommendations

Visit Responsibly

  • If you have recently been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19, please help us keep everyone safe by rescheduling your visit
  • Please wash hands frequently and follow physical distancing guidelines.

We appreciate your support and understanding as we navigate the changing landscape in travel and tourism together. Please remember that there is always some inherent risk in travel as there is in life, but we believe that the rewards are pretty great, so let’s work together to keep everybody safe.

The innkeeper of the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast visited a family farm yesterday evening to pick up what might be the last flat of Blueberries. Pristine apples are in the slow cooker now and the aroma of spicy applesauce fills the air.

There’ll be large bowls of apples set out for their guests and the blueberries and pears will be baked into tasty breakfast treats. We came home with a flat of big juicy peaches too.

These delights of summer and fall can be found anywhere along the Hood River County Fruit Loop. Spend a glorious Fall afternoon on The Loop seeking out your favorite fruit or fruit concoction. The summer harvest will end around the middle of October, but in its place you will find a array of apples, pears and vegetables through the fall and enough choices from both seasons to satisfy, and if you enjoy picking your own fruit, U-pick is available at a few orchards. Your Farm to Table feasts begins here.

For a romantic afternoon drive we invite you to meander through the Valley’s forests, farmlands, and friendly communities. Pick up a sweet treat at Packer Orchards. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the patio of Stave and Stone Winery and Hood River Lavender. Then come home to a unique bed and breakfast of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild.  The innkeepers of the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast will treat you to an amazing breakfast created with ingredients harvested right here in the Hood River Valley.

Hike or bike the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail. Sixty-eight of the original 73 miles of the Historic Columbia River Highway are now open to travel either by motor vehicle, foot and bicycle. Work has begun on the last 5 miles needed to complete the connection and the groundbreaking for that section.

Traversing between Hood River and Mosier, the five mile section of the Historic Columbia River Highway passes through the Twin Tunnels and two climate zones. Being closed to auto traffic is an amazing trail for hikers, bikers, rollerbladers, anyone human powered.

Drive and graze along the Hood River County Fruit Loop

Spend a glorious Fall afternoon on The Loop seeking out your favorite fruit or fruit concoction. The summer harvest will end around the middle of October, but in its place you will find a array of apples, pears and vegetables through the fall and enough choices from both seasons to satisfy, and if you enjoy picking your own fruit, U-pick is available at a few orchards.

Carlton Oregon

The Carlton InnBuilt in 1915, The Carlton Inn Bed & Breakfast, is in the charming community of Carlton, Oregon.

The Inn offers 4 guest rooms, each with a private bath. The bedding ensemble includes comforters, micro-fiber sheets, and pillows covered with hypo-allergenic slip covers. All rooms have central air conditioning and wireless internet. Farm fresh eggs from the backyard flock make their way into gourmet breakfasts at the inn including this:

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tablespoons granulated
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese (do not substitute fat-free)
1 large egg
2 large egg whites
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1 Tablespoon canola oil, more for brushing on the griddle/skillet

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.  In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together ricotta, egg, egg whites, lemon juice, lemon zest and canola oil. Fold this mixture into the dry ingredients to make a thick batter.

Brush a nonstick skillet with canola oil and heat over medium-low.  With a 1/4 cup measure, drop the batter onto the skillet, spreading it slightly. Cook the pancakes until browned on the underside and beginning to set, about 2 minutes.  Flip and cook until browned on the second side and cooked at the center, about two minutes longer. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a baking sheet and place in the oven to keep warm.  Brush the griddle or skillet with the remaining oil and repeat with remaining batter.

Blueberry Sauce

1-1/2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2-1/4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice and cornstarch, then set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine the blueberries, sugar, water and salt.  Bring mixture to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to a simmer and stir in lemon juice-cornstarch mixture.  Simmer, stirring, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 2 minutes more.  Cover and set aside.

Umbrella Fall Mt Hood National Forest

Umbrella Falls, in the Mt Hood National Forest, is found near the headwaters of the East Fork of the Hood River just down from the Mount Hood Meadows Ski Area. It veils 59 feet over a rough wall of reddish bedrock amid a forested meadow glade.

Because Umbrella Falls is located high in East Fork drainage it exhibits a significant variance in flow as the season progresses. Snow will linger in the basin well into July, but by September the amount of water flowing over the falls is greatly reduced.

Summer is an ideal time to hit the hiking trails on Mt Hood for wildflowers and waterfalls. For the Best Oregon Waterfalls with spectacular Wildflower Bloom start at the Mt Hood Meadows Ski Resort parking lot, take the service road up to Upper Heather Canyon Falls (#22) then hike the Timberline Trail past Pencil Falls (#21) and back down to the lodge. The wildflowers were amazing. The views were stunning. Take a bit off your mileage with a ride on the Stadium chair lift for trail access.

You can extend your hike with the Umbrella Falls (#23) and Sahalie Falls, a 3.4 mile moderately trafficked trail located near Mount Hood Parkdale, Oregon that offers scenic views and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, wildflowers, nature trips, and bird watching and is best used from May until September.

Start, and end, your adventure chasing wildflowers and waterfalls on Mt Hood at the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast.
