Isn't this a gorgeous picture? We took this on our way home from the Hood River Valley a few days ago. What a treat for us to stay in a few Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild inns near Mt. Hood.
After a few days near Bend for snowmobiling and relaxing, we headed north toward Mt. Hood. Reservations at a few inns in that region gave us the opportunity to continue relaxing and get a bit spoiled. Mary at The Old Parkdale Inn in Parkdale, Oregon as always, made us feel welcome, warm and relaxed. Breaking out the "good stuff" for my husband, he totally enjoyed The Old Parkdale Inn's front porch while he enjoyed his guilty pleasures. And, for me...well staying in and reading a good book made for the perfect evening.
A delicious breakfast and we were off a whole two miles up the road to the Mt. Hood Hamlet. Paul and Diane have been innkeepers for some time now and have mastered the menu in the kitchen. Oatmeal souffle for breakfast and we were in heaven. The old barn out the window, the snow, the birds, the huge gorgeous guest room and the company made our second night in the region the perfect ending to our little get-a-way!
Not wanting to leave the area just yet, we decided to "play" on our way home. I had wanted to show Ray where Sakura Ridge Bed and Breakfast was. I had been a dinner guest there a few months ago. What a perfect location for a Mt. Hood Bed and Breakfast! Almost every guest room had a view of Mt. Hood and the hills and gardens surrounding make for the perfect peaceful stay. Organic farming, fresh and local faire added so much to our delicious culinary experience when I visited last October.
Expecting more snow and colder weather very soon, the Mt. Hood region is not only a great place to "play," but it is also a great place to "stay!" Warm inn's, even warmer innkeepers and lovely cuisine all makes for a perfect Mt. Hood Bed and Breakfast get-a-way!
