Central Oregon hides many beautiful sights but thorough searching provides great discoveries. The Historic Balch Hotel is one of the best examples of this. My awareness of the hotel came through a search on Google maps. I looked for inns and hotels along highway 197. To my surprise I saw a hotel in Dufur. It is about 15 miles south... More

Is to see to the comfort of their guests, from the moment you are greeted, to their earnest attempt to see that all your needs are met, to the best of their abilities. The rooms are true to the history of the hotel, with all the quirks expected. And, breakfast was delicious. Everything made from scratch, and for us, terrific... More

We stayed at The Balch recently over one perfect summer weekend for a family wedding. The inn is welcoming with a warm and accommodating staff, a fabulous and healthy breakfast (ours featured sweet local cherries and berries) and a comfy bed with crisp linens and multiple pillows. Our room, 24, had a gorgeous view of the rolling wheat fields that... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night in May on a trip to Oregon. Our room was the King Suite located in the front top floor. It provided us with an amazing view of Mt. Hood and for extra entertainment, there was a large active red-tailed hawks nest in the tree across the street. We were greeted by... More

We loved our all too brief stay at the Balch Hotel. I awoke to a perfect view of Mt. Hood. The linens were wonderful, the amenities awesome and the breakfast terrific...oh, and the best part is the friendly, helpful staff. I would definitely go again or recommend to a friend.

We took the family back to the Balch for my husband's birthday weekend. His request was to stay "somewhere relaxing"....and he spend most of the afternoon asleep in the hammock in their back yard, so I think we achieved success! Denise checked us in, took us to our room and got us settled. She was so nice and extremely helpful!... More

I traveled to The Balch Hotel from Portland, OR last week. It was my first time and I joined a group of five other ladies! Four of the gals had gone last year and had such a nice time, they wanted to return and invited two more. It's such a lovely drive thru The Gorge...I never tire of the beautiful... More

This hotel has been lovingly restored. There's no mistake you're in a very old building, though. I once lived in a house that was roughly the same age, and like my old house, the plumbing is a little noisy and floors are creaky.But I will certainly stay here again! We were in the area for the Pine Hollow Triathlon. I'm... More

It was an absolute delight to stay at the Balch Hotel. Samantha greeted us with fresh baked cookies as we registered and then escorted us to our room, explaining the layout and a bit of the background of this restored historical hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the view from the windows was beautiful. We chose a room... More

The Historic Balch Hotel is on the National Historic Register and is a very cool old restored hotel. Some rooms have bathrooms in them and some have shared baths down the hall with sinks in the rooms. They have a state of the art kitchen and serve breakfast, the price included with your stay. Coffee is ready at "8:06". They... More
