We've created outdoor spaces for you to soak in the warm sunshine, gaze at the wheat fields, Mount Hood view, or sunset. The hammocks are great spaces for you to read, daydream (remember watching the clouds ) or even nap.

We offer light dinner options (soup, salad, wrap, etc.) so you no longer need to leave for an afternoon or evening meal! (See the Dine page for details.) Dine on our patio or in our dining room. Or walk to some local establishments--limited but classic--or for a full menu dining experience head to The Dalles (20 minutes), Hood River (40 minutes) or Maupin (30 minutes). We can help with options.

You might also enjoy a glass of wine from one of our local wineries, or a cold beer to go with our coffee-infused chocolate ganache cake. It's the best.
