After seeing Horsetail Falls, I knew I wanted to see as many of the area's falls as we could squeeze in. One of our Columbia Gorge guide’s outlined a 12 mile hike that sounded amazing. After packing up camp, we managed to get to the Eagle Creek trailhead a little after nine am and embarked on what may be my favorite …

The Edgefield Hotel is located in Troutdale Oregon, east of Portland. It was run as a county poor farm for 70 years and had a remarkable array of personalities known to have congregated under its roof, the one common thread among them was, at one time in their lives, each needed a "leg up."
Many of the …

Historical Traveler Reviews McMenamins Edgefield Troutdale
Edgefield is a nice place to have a wedding, but the wedding party and guests would be much happier staying in a local AAA rated 3 star hotel. We opened our room door and could smell a musty odor. The carpets and furniture were filthy, it was stuffy, and there was no air conditioning. The room was dark & dingy and had old funky vinyl covered furniture-- a sofa and chairs--the kind you wouldn't buy at a garage sale. When we opened the window we were confronted with noisy guests on the landing immediately outside our room. We were disturbed many times, and late into the evening, but since the rooms don't have any telephones, we could not call the management (and they were all full up anyway). "European style guestrooms" is a euphemism for bath down the hall. The atmosphere at Edgefield is fun, but you'll be much happier driving 5 minutes to a hotel that's clean and has all the modern amenities that you'd expect in a hotel. We stayed in the Comfort Inn, and for $30 less got a clean room with a large in-room jacuzzi, phone, TV, AC, coffee maker, hair dryer, and extended CP breakfast with a waffle maker. The Best Western Rama is also a good alternative.
My daughter had her wedding at the Edgefield last weekend on 9/11. The grounds were beautiful. There was alot to do. The wedding coordinator was good as well as the servers. However, the front desk & the restaurtant head when they opened at 7:00 AM at the Black Rabbit were less than perfect. My daughter asked for breakfast in her room for mothers, sisters, etc. who were getting their makeup & hair done--what an attitude. This was all prearranged. You would think that with as much money as the bride spent and all the guests that stayed there spend they would have wanted to please the wedding group. We had a good time regardless but there are at least 4 of us writing letters of complaint. Maybe when they start to behave as professsionals---I will stay there again.
We just spent five days at the Edgefield, and it was truly an amazing experience. The grounds are absolutely stunning, with all kinds of flowers, plants, trees, herbs, orchards, and vineyards. Interesting artwork covers practically every square inch of the walls, including pipe joints, doors, ceilings, stairwells, lightswitch plates, etc. There is no air conditioning, which was kind of unfortunate because we stayed there during a heat wave when it was 103 degrees outside. I'm sure that most of the year, though, it's just fine. The view from the numerous huge wooden balconies and porches is just gorgeous -- the place is kind of on a hill so you can look out across the trees and grounds. Stunning.
The lovly grounds are full of lush greenery.Trees
vines, flowers of all kinds.
The room large and accomadating. Restful and in and around my room, quite.
The wedding was held in beautiefull surroundings.
The reception hall was just right,exceptional buffett.
Our dinner in the Black Rabbitt restruant was the best. I would recommend your place to anyone, for one day stay, weddings,or a weeks vaction.
Just the relaxation I needed!
A few of my friends and I went down there in early May. I wasn't expecting much...heard there were no phones and no TVs! But the place has so much to offer. Great restaurants (the Power House is a fabulous little cafe/pub...with outdoor seating in the spring/summer). The rooms were nice and big, and the shared bathrooms weren't bad - private suites with a toilet, sink and shower. The grounds were perfectly manicured with beautiful flowers and wildlife. You can't beat the Little Red Shed for a late night drink! Great wine and beer. I'm going back in a few weeks I enjoyed it so much! Lots of people were there that weekend, but my boyfriend and I felt like we were the only ones around.
One Night is not enough!
Loved the place! Didn't have enough time to see everything we wanted though. Massage was wonderful... enormous room, no phones and TV a blessing! Hammerhead package is a steal! Don't miss the Little Red Shed. We'll be back!
I first saw the Edgefield during the summer. I was entranced by the artwork, the location, and the Bohemian quality of the place! Their brochure listed a "Rest And Relax" package that called to me -and a few weeks ago, I was finally able to answer the call. I reserved the "R & R" package for a Saturday night. My mother and I were driving to California the next day and it seemed the perfect way to start the trip. Our room was darling - a quaint combination of whimsical wall-paintings and austere furnishings. The queensize bed was comfortable and the fluffy white terrycloth robes were a nice touch. It would have been nicer if they'd fit...but I don't sweat the small stuff. The massage included in the R & R package was perfect - perfect room, perfect ambience, perfect massage therapist! The session started out, however, with a pagefull of medical history questions to be answered - and I hadn't brought my glasses! Also, I was annoyed at taking up my massage time by filling out this medical background. She gave me a full hour of massage anyway since mine was the last one of the day. I really appreciated that because she was very good! However, if you're getting a massage, ask for that medical history sheet when you check in-save yourself the time and annoyance. This package also included breakfast the next morning and that was a delight. The food arrived hot and delicious. I submit, though, that opera arias aren't the right music for a noisy breakfast crowd. All that could be heard was an occasional high-pitched screeching which added nothing to the otherwise tolerable level of human conversation. So, you're wondering where the "worst of nights" part comes in, right? On the night we stayed, there were three weddings and a birthday party in progress.
Two of us from our office went to McMenamins in Troutdale and had a very fasinating time checking out all the art work...everywhere!! Wandering the grounds and checking out the buildings and history of the property was a very interesting experience! I hope the fact that not every room has a bathroom scares people off because the bath rooms are very comfortable and easily accessible to your room! They even had some old fashion claw-type bathtubs, if you like to relax!!We had a very fun time and made the time fly by...oh, yeah the meeting was good too!!
On a trip to Oregon in October, 2002, I stayed overnight in a commercial motel in Troutdale, on the eastern edge of Portland. The following morning I asked the motel clerk where she might recommend I have breakfast. She recommended McMenamins Edgefield, which was nearby. When I drove onto the McMenamins property, I felt I'd probably made a mistake. It didn't look anything like a Denny's. It was more like a 1920s resort, with large buildings and grounds that reminded me of a small college campus. I entered the main building, as I'd been instructed, and discovered a gift shop and the Black Rabbit Restaurant. The McMenamins property had once been a government-run orphanage and poor farm, I was told, and is today a winery, resort and hotel. There I was served a truly great breakfast, in an uncrowded and comfortable setting. The breads and jellies were exceptional. The eggs, bacon, coffee superb. I highly recommend the Black Rabbit, which reportedly got this name from an actual black rabbit once observed on the site.
McMenamins at Edgefield
We have stayed at McMemamins on five occasions and this year will be the sixth. Great place to relax and unwind. Staff is friendly and competent. This is not a formal place, but offers a lot of comfort and ways to relax. Onsite restaurants range from upscale restaurant with creative dishes, to a grill with burgers and sandwiches, and even a beer garden. All food is good quality and a good value. The onsite brewery makes great beer, the winery makes good wine, and the distillery does a good job as well. We have never had a bad experience here.The rooms are unique and the whimsical murals which cover the entire interior are worth a few hours of enjoyment.
