... hike up to the waterfall, which was indeed very beautiful and had a very interesting shape, resembling a necktie. In all, the waterfall drops quite a big height through a series of cascades and horsetail-drops, but like many of the waterfalls here, it was not possible to get the entire thing in one shot.
We continued on to Bridal Veil Falls State Scenic Viewpoint. A short hike down from the parking area leads ...
First stop of the day was Ponzi's new vineyard at Beaverton - including a tour of their new wine making facilities.
Very impressively designed (by the owner who used to work for Disney as an Imagineer designing their rides) - based on a gravity system that means they use very little electricity and it's all very eco-minded.
We also visited their older Historic Estate (where they started off in 1970) which is just up the road

I had heard that there was a Portland Nike running club that meet on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5.30 so I made my way back to the hotel and togged down for the run.
Unfortunately they had changed the time to 6.30 bit that at least gave me time to hydrate and eat, my favourite, peanut butter m&ms.
The run was really good fun and I met a great bunch of people. We tabbed out a little over 12 Km (7mi). There ...
... br> There were three main varieties of paper used in India: Bansaha, made from crushed bamboo; Tatha, from jute; and Tulat, from cotton. It is intriguing to note that cotton was always bleached before it was put to use in paper—maybe via the sun and water—as this was way before bleach as we know it had ...
... spots, they tie little plastic horses to the old hitching rings around the city, they have man after man sporting handle bar moustaches and father time beards, and they have an annual naked bike ride event. Definitely weird!! Our next stop right across the street was what Vanessa was waiting for, Voodoo Doughnut! We had to indulge ourselves by buying more than we needed, of course we had to get a voodoo doll (with raspberry blood filling), a bacon maple bar and a chocolate/peanut ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Shilo Inn & Suites - Beaverton
Sorry, this was not a great deal
I got a good rate, but the room showed its age. There were holes in my sheets. Everything in the room was looking very old and tired. The reception was quaint. The hotel is used as meeting rooms for lots of local events, unfortunately all the carpets in the hallway smelled of old dirty smoke. Maybe the previous tenants enjoyed it because they had a dog. I certainly would not stay here again. They were having plumbing problems and the water came out brown to orange, gross. We stayed three nights, as fas as I was concerned 3 nights too many.
The landscaping was very nice. They must have a good gardener, but this place needs a major overhaul.
Our Stay Was Great!
My wife and I recently stayed in a suite for 6 nights. We found this Shilo very clean, quiet and comfortable. It was far enough away from the freeway to be quiet but close enough to be very convenient. We received a complimentary buffet each morning that was excellent and we found the restaurant for dinner excellent as well. The staff was very courteous and friendly. I recommend the Shilo Hotel / Portland to anyone looking for a clean and quiet hotel experience.
Perfect in every way
I stayed at this hotel back in march for 3 nights. We had a room over looking the pool and fountain, it was beautiful. Just sitting on the balcony outside my room was watching the fountain and gozebo was a relaxation moment for me and my wife. to top it off the staff was very helpfull and friendly. This is the hotel to stay if you are traveling to Beaverton or Portland, make sure you ask for a room over looking the fountain and you will see what i mean
People & Dog Friendly
We were very pleasantly surprised with The Shilo Inn in Beaverton. The staff were courteous and efficient. The decor was very tasteful. The room was one of the best we have ever had in, the view to the courtyard is the best in Portland. As you can tell, we recommend it very highly.
I've stayed at my share of Portland hotels. You just can't go wrong at the Shilo Inn Beaverton. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff is ultra-friendly. I even have a requested room on my profile so that every time I book there, I usually get the same room. It's just a queen room, but I like it, and the Shilo staff takes care of me.
My family stay here whenever they come to visit. The garden view rooms are lovely, and the pool in the summer is great for the kids. The Ginza restaurant was awful when they ate there earlier this year, so we didn't even try it this visit, but McCormicks is just up the road, and has delicious food.
Comfortable at the Shilo
Overall, our stay at the Shilo Inn was very pleasant. The room was clean, spacious and quiet, with nice towels and amenities. The breakfast buffet was a delightful surprise with a variety of hot, freshly prepared foods. My only complaint is that what they advertised to be a mini-suite was actually a standard room with a small refrigerator and microwave oven in the corner. Once we got over our initial disappointment, we enjoyed our stay.
You get what you pay for!!
Okay, the price was very good, but.......The hallway to the rooms had a terrible odor. (even with the door to the outside open) The room had a large stain on the cieling from what looks like water damage. One of the phones didn't work. The breakfast was okay. The clear plastic tape holding the serving cart together was a little disturbing. I don't think I will stay there again.
Great service, comfortable rooms and excellent food.
I was very impress with the quality of service at Shilo Inn Beaverton. The staff was very accomodating and helpful. The room was very clean and spacious. The complimentary hot breakfast in the morning was great. I will recommend this hotel to all of my friends and family.
This is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in and I've spent many nights in a hotel room. The rooms are large. May have a view of the hotels beautiful courtyard with its fountain and gazebo. Most comfortable and I love the cigar friendly Sports Den Sports Bar!!! Whenever I travel to Portlnad, this is my home away from home.
