innkeepers believe it's almost always "about the food!"
We've have discovered the joy in finding some new way to use the
fresh, local and organic ingredients found in abundance at road

country, you not only find wine grapes, but there are berries
growing on the sides of the road, greens growing in rows along

orchards in the Mt. Hood region. So, how can it not be about...

Waterfalls we hope to shoot. If you know of any others please
let me know. We have most of the...

of the United States, with over 50 covered spans. These timber
